what kind of camo fits the sabre position best? I was thhinking of getting an ultralite fusion and attaching an ag density kit to it to break up the outline. I dunno what do you think?

Your "position" has nothing to do with your camo scheme & and no one pattern will be your "be all, end all" fix.

Forget the cookie cutter "positions" that have been conveniently laid out for you complete with gear list and links for purchase. Play with the gun you want, wear what you want. Don't let a company or some 16y/o "expert" make any decisions for you.

Think for yourself.

The best camo is the kind that matches the area where you play such as desert camo would not work in the woods.

I wouldn't worry about buying camo from specops either. They have pretty nice stuff, but it comes at a premium cost. Just take a look at your local surplus store if you have one and see if you like anything there. They often have amazing deals on all kinds of camo from around the world - you're more likely to find something that will fit your environment.

Tigerstripe was always a big favorite back in the early days of paintball. It was designed for Vietnam where the engagements commonly took place roughly around 100 or so feet. It just so happens that is the range most people play paintball. If you are playing in an environment that is green enough for Tigerstripe I always recommend it.

I ended up just buying a flecktarn jacket because it matched the coniferous forests where I play. Not to mention I could get a whole set, (pants jacket, winter/rain jacket, and field cap) for $25

it really depends on many factors such as where you play,what kind of terrain you play in,etc etc
personally i enjoy using special ops omnipat,i just got them in ultralight and not only is it comfortable it also blends in pretty well.i was within 20 feet in front,as in i am either in their direct or pheripiral vision, and i wasnt seen,of course that was also due to the soft cover i had but there wasnt a whole lot.Special ops fusions are very comfortbale but pricy,if you have no budget i would advice you to get a pair.I never enjoyed normal BDU's they are too uncomfortable for me but the special ops line is built like a tournament jersey,it also has padding in places you need it.The fusions have actual padding at the elbows and crotch area while the knees are reinforced.the ultralights are just reinforced at the knees and elbows but if you use pads that wouldnt be a downfall.

your position doesent choose your camo you do. I personly go with army woodland fatigues those just work best for me. Find the camo that suits you best.

if we cant do it. it doesent need to be done

Everyone is right just go to a surplus store and pick something up. A plus to having a military jacket is that it has pockets.

yo the thing u got to do is don't look at the position and worry about ur skill to take care of that. u have to look at what field ur palying at like if it is thick or what kind of woods u will be playing in. don't let urself get subjected to the position and tahts the stuff u gotta ahve or the stuff u gotta wear. use the gun ur best with and use the clothes that fit the field. let ur skill take the rest of that

I think Rob "Tyger" Ruben has the best advice on this topic:
Crash course in Camoflage

I just use Army Woodland BDUs. There are two types, look at the tags. If it says coat, woodland camoflage pattern, combat, it is a normal bdu. If it says coat, hot weather, woodland camo etc, then it will be a little thinner and lighter. I have pants and jackets in one of each for summer and spring/fall. The hot weather ones are 100% cotton, while the other is 50% cotton and 50% nylon. Both have rip-stop material in them. Plus the BDU has doubled up fabric on the elbows, knees, and inner theigh/rear for added rip reinforcement.

The aggressive patterns I think work the best, unless you plan on sitting in the same spot for the whole game. Go aggressive or go active, woodland, tigerstripe, etc, or ghillie, I'd avoid the realtree and rebark patterns, unless you are playing in a forest that is 100% all the same tree and no bushes or anything.

I actually rarely wear camoflauge these days. Since I usually play in a jersey and paintball pants, my home field is so heavily wooded so it's never bright inside and most of the trees are pine, grey gear I use fits in quite well.

it all depends if you need the extra lightness that the ultralight gives. i dont know how good they are compared to a BDU, but it sounds as if it does help. but if you play in conditions where it does get cold, than i would suggest getting BDU cause then you wont feel the breeze.
