I'm thinking about getting a BT-4 combat. This is my first gun but I've played with others. i was wondering if i would be able to use it for speed ball if i got it an e grip and a rip-clip.

You can use any marker for any style of paintball. Slinging paint will not be your problem, manueverability may though. Just get a marker that you feel suits you best.

Welcome to the forums.

I have a BT as well. Very nice choice of marker.
You can use it for speedball as it is. You do not need a specific kind of marker to play speedball. I play speedball sometimes with a pump. An E-grip will give you the advantage of a faster rate of fire though. It is an all around great mod to your marker if you choose to get it.

I do not like cyclone/rip-clip style hoppers myself, but it is all personal preference. I suggest you try one out before you buy one. I prefer a normal electric hopper myself. When someone asks me what it is like to use a cyclone style hopper, my reply is usually: "In cold weather, they turn into blenders, (this is my experience.) even with good paint. In warm, they work ok, but it is like having a tumor on the side of your marker yelling "hit me." On the other hand, you may be one of many who do like it. As I said, try one out and see if you like it before you buy.

Like MM and shadow said any marker can be used for any game. I play speedball with a 98 custom. There are guys who play speedball with pumps for god sakes.

Like the guys above me said, any marker can be used for speedball. Heres a pic of my teammate playing with a fully milsim'd X7:

The team won 5 out of 9 games too, 1 game out of third place.

Ahh, and by the way. I am not sure if they are still together, but the Tippinators were/are a tippmann (similar style markers but not as good imo) sponsored team that played tourneys and woodsball, and used mil-sim style markers.

The BT-4 Combat is a great low end marker. The short stock barrel that comes on the BT-4 is actually a really good barrel. I put an Apex on mine and it works great. The Apex, a Palmers Stabilizer, and a decent loader is all I have on my BT and I'm very pleased with it. I use a remote with the tank on my belt so I can easily switch hands and I have a sling for convienience. I use to have a 14" barrel and a stock on it but it was way too long. Now it's nice and short so I can tuck in tight when I have too. We play a game at my field called "center bell" which is alot like center flag speedball and it works great.

for you guys that absh tippmann cause you have bt 4s remember your shooting essnetially a tippmann marker because it is a similar design and bt stands for ben tippmann they just switched the a5 internals and put them in a 98c body its a very good marker and i would own one if i had the chance im actually looking into the tm7 as one of my next purchases
i onw several 98c's and love them to death
as for the cyclone feed i have never had a problem with mine it has never chopped paint on me and ive played in 30 degree weather as well as 112 degree weather the only time i had a problem is when i took a bad paod half full of dirt and poured it in it stoped working but a quick rinse and a good drying and it was back on the marker and feeding fine

the BT-4 will work on a speedball field... it is however heavier, less accurate and slower firing that most electro guns out there so you will be at a disadvantge.

I have the BT-4 Delta Elite, and it works fine for speedball. I have never had a problem with the Rip Clip, though I have onlt used it a few times. The only problem I have had with the E-Grip is that the sear slips sometimes, but that was fixed easily enough. Also, the Apex works pretty well.

If you would get a Delta Elite, remove the MP5 shroud and the mag. Replace the mag with a vertical grip. The gun becomes lighter and easier to move around, especially in speedball. Plus, that shroud is a pain to clean on the field.

1. Who bashed tippmann in this thread exactly
2. Actually Ben Tippmann was recently changed to Battle Tested
3. Actually IMO the internals are more similar to a 98 custom.. but ok
