As I said, I ordered my remote online and waited for almost two weeks to get my hands on it. It was a beautiful remote that cost me $55. It had a slide check and quick disconnect. I was sure I'd love it. Then it came in.
I had never tried a remote before, but I got the impression that it was pretty important based on the content of this site. I was therefore sure that I'd love it and spent a lot of money to get a high quality remote. However, I could not stand the way it actually felt in a real game. The cord prevented me from easily shooting off hand, and I was always worried about it catching on something (although it never did). Anyway, I used my $55 dollar remote for a total of 2 hours of paintball before I put my tank back on the gun and the remote in the bottom of my gear bag (it hasn't been touched since).
Long story short, don't do what I did. If you think you might want to run a remote set up, please try it out before you go out and buy a remote. Running a remote is definately not for everyone, so make sure you like it before you drop a wad of cash on something you may never use.
P.S. If anyone wants to relieve me of my remote, give me an email and maybe we can work something out.
