Just thought that Spec ops guys who like to discuss high end markers and new products should deserves a thread to post in instead of multiple threads that take up server. So please keep the chat Paintball related and try not to get this one closed. so lets get tanking onto another 400+ thread :dodgy:

Is the quality and selection now offered by the mid-range markers going to make the $1500 marker a special order everywhere and very limited in production?

The pmr - mini - NXT - fusion - etc have brought this class a reputation of reliablity now that was only really found in the $1000 + market.

Mid rage guns are getting better but still not as good as the high end guns and never will be. You think the companys like SP have alreay thought this out.

I don't think so. Egos have such big hype their sells aren't going to go down just because of some well made mid-grade guns.

I think that in the rec and lower comp divisions mid ends will dominate but still the D2 and up I think will still flock to the 1000+ high ends.
Also i consider The NXT as high end. Just Smart Parts isnt crazy and jacking the prices for their markers up to ubsurd ampounts

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..

How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.

cool, I played with my pump with some pro's. I was balling. yo.


But what do you think it costs to produce an ion? >$75 for sure, and they just raised the price $25


I think midends are getting great. F8, threshold, etc...

Threshold=overpriced PMR=overpriced Ion...

At least the quality goes up a bit each time, but I don't think the PMR is twice the quality of an Ion (better reg, but they can't even give a decent back cap or trigger? That's like $5 more in manufacturing). Haven't seen much of the threshold, looks decent, but I wonder how much of the cost is from milling... like a bob long.

And whats with the Ion not even being bolt out back?

Anyways, these unbalanced spools are neat-o for the price, I guess


Oh so the threshold bolt is already milled for high efficency sealing off oring mod, why not include the 2 cent part, even if you're not going to install it. Give a small sheet of paper saying "this is something you don't need, but here's why you might want it, and look, we're even giving it to you for free"

lol, good points, the quality of a PMR is nowhere near acceptable... like c'mon, plastic frame, trigger, and back cap, blahhh... they probably saved themselves about $10 per PMR...

Gah...I was hoping we could bring back the HEMD name. It was so much cooler.

45/45

And I'll never consider any marker from SP as a high-end.

Are you agitating my dots? 10%

Oh I wasn't calling any of those high end. The DP may turn out to be... we shall see how it performs. The Ion and PMR... Definitely not
