i dont like using a remote for a few reasons:
1) slide-check could come loose
2) the coil gets tangled
3) hard to shoot opposite hand

however they are good for:
1) tucking in better
2) less wight on the gun

I hate my remote. but I have no choice, since I have a vertical ASA and a 20 oz. I'm in the process of closing a deal on a cocker, and will then have on-gun air!! YAY!!

1) never happened to me
2) yes has happened to me sometimes but it was before i got the right pack for my tank now i have no problems
3) yes it is but if you pass it behind your back its fine


1) definetely
2) biggest difference ive seen

also the remote works very well as an expansion chamber

Also, you can't set your gun down without taking off your pack.

Thats what a slide check is for. Or just get a sling. I do both. I wont play with a remote without a sling or a slide check.

If you have a slide check on your remote, gas it up before you attach it to your marker. The remote will "unwind" and you won't have any problems with the coil tangling. I run a remote and HPA with my A-5 and cops vest. Makes the A-5 much lighter. I also use a clip on my vest to attach the A-5 to when not in use. Don't have to worry bout the hassles of a sling then! :o

I agree, when I play dagger I dont want to be bogged down with a remote and the nessisary gear attached to it. I really dont enjoy a sling either. Many times Ive simply dropped my main marker and pulled my pistol, with a sling or remote Id have all the gear still on me and it would retard my mobility.

Maybe its good for heavier gunners but even when I play medium I like having the tank on the marker. Makes crawling and rolling around in low cover a hell of a lot easier and more comfortable.

I have one because my primary position is being a sniper,
but when I play the dagger position I take it off, and plus i
f the spec. ops. dagger doesn't use a remote, then they can't
be all that good for that position.....

get some CP stuff and reverse the tank on your gun. its much easier to swing around. the CP pro rail make it easy.

On gun, no questions asked,the dagger needs the speed advantage of having his air on his gun. If you play dagger then you will want on gun instead of going remote.
tippmanns you just can't beat them.
