Well, for a marketing class I need to create a product idea and do a bunch of papers on it, my hardest part is actually choosing a product.

I need to find something that has a large amount of potential buyers, but not too much other competition for their dollars. Ever thought of that one thing that you could really use in paintball, but no company makes for you? That's exactly what I need to find out, I need to pick the forum's brains for this one. I've only had about 2 good ideas recently, only 1 of which was original. I saw M_P's thread about creating a milsim pump marker, but he came up with that first, so I wont steal his thunder.

My current idea is a pneumatic-assisted marker, doesn't need to be any certain brand, but the key thing is that it comes pneu'ed right out of the box, no extra modding or "upgrading" to do. It could be a good alternative for those who want a mech with a high BPS, or just dont want to have to do the pneu-modding themselves. What do you guys think would you buy something like this? Is there already a product like this that I dont know about? Obviously there's still 'mags and cockers, and RT'ed Tippy's and such, but if there isnt an overwhelming number of alternatives for a high ROF mech or stock-pneu'ed markers I can still make this work.

Any comments, and especially new suggestions are appreciated. It doesn't need to be a marker, it could be anything at all as long as it's somewhat viable. I don't need to create an actual working model, I just need ideas.

First person to say a semi automatic propane marker im shutting down this thread haha

Honestly there isnt much I feel is really NEEDED I can think of alot of things that would be cool but currently there is nothing I feel that vast majority of players really need that hinders something they are trying to do on the field.


Peace,

It can be needed, or it can be cool, but I really just need people to buy it :rolleyes: The only thing is that paintball in itself is already a fairly niche market, so I need to reach as many people out of that niche as possible. Still, I'd be grateful if you could just chuck any idea that pops into your head my way, you never know what it may lead to.

Stock class lever changers, six pack stocks, and turret stocks. So few and yet so expensive

I want to see a good pistol.

And a mech pneu-spyder-esque thing, think Ego with a 4-way instead of a solenoid and a board. :P

Affordable Reballs with a Magnetic center.
That way, after I'm done, I can sweep the yard/field/corner of my living room with a magnet and pick them all up.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

that's a cool idea! although I don't know how it would work playing against people at reball fields, it could end up fatal

Well they'd still have the same/similar give to a reball.
However, instead of pure rubber or whatever they are, they're a bit of magnet in the center.

Obviously testing would need to be done to determine the size and weight of the magnet, but I imagine it wouldn't be too tough.
