Well my promaster finally cracked out on me so now I'm in the market for a new gun. I have about $200 to spend. I'd say I play woodsball 2/3 of the time, but I still enjoy a day of fast paced speedball. I'm kinda leaning towards the SLG, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions?

I would take a Rail over an SLG, just because the SLG is a sear-tripper.

i have played alongside both the SLG and PMR, and i have to say they are both great guns. im not sure which one i would call better- IMO, they are very similar, but the Rail seems to have more to offer.

have you considered looking at an Intimidator? for maybe 150.00 more, they are great guns, or maybe the Invert Mini? a lot of guys at my field are using them.

Used F7 is $150-200

Fusions are great for the price. Otherwise, I'd suggest a mini, or maybe a used timmy if you could find one cheap enough.

How about an automag? No batteries with high end performance, plus it could be found cheap.

If you need the higher ROF of electros, many of the listed choices are good. I'm not sure what else to add to it, as any choice for electros will be used.

Automag is an excellent suggestion, but if you're sold on electros, PMR gets my vote, or a used Invert Mini if you can find one that cheap.

Have you looked at Smart Parts? The SP-1 is great for woodsball but still fast enough to compete on the speedball field too. It's only around 200 bucks new and you might be able to work out a deal at your local shop.

Seems like a step down from a Promaster. It's not easy to compete with an SP-1 on the speedball field if you play against anyone remotely serious. I had shootdown problems with the one I had. I think the Promaster blows the SP-1 out of the water, I've owned both so I'm speaking from MY experience which may differ from other's.

yes, an sp-1 would be a serious step down from a promaster. I think if you really want to see a difference in marker quality you're going to have spend more than $200. The promaster is cheap and performs as great as any other marker in its price range. If you want to step up from a promaster you're going to have to shell out some dough.

I've been browsing around for used timmy's lately and they seem like a great choice. I personally dislike the SP1 greatly. I've used one before, it was heavy, and it only took it 200 shots to devour all the air in my tank. I've also looked at PM5's and various other PM guns. I don't think I'll be getting another promaster, I think it's a great gun, but it's hard to find parts for and I'm looking for an upgrade. I'm just curious here, but why does everybody love automags so much?

People love mags' because they throw paint accurately downrange (way down range) and are very easy to keep up...The whole guts of the marker come out the back, no tools needed! But I'm not trying to sell you on a Mag, I have one and have gotta say that its a marker that loves upgrades a little too much... Cockers are good, for 200 bucks you could get a Very nice cocker, and if your used to the upkeep of a electro, the upkeep of a cocker isnt that much of a step up.

I've always been interested in automags, but I've never used one and after lots of searching I haven't been able to find them anywhere.

I am a 'Mag and 'Cocker fan, but also a major Bob Long fan. My 4-year old Timmy still throws ropes and keeps up with the new kids on the block quite well, so you can't go wrong with a good used Bob Long (hey, that rhymes!) If you can get a good deal, Bob will never let you down. Look for used Mags and Timmys here:
