I bought one at the Tippman Challenge. Wow. I can't imagine playing without this piece of exuipment now. It is very handy while consulting maps, setting mines, adjusting gear, and walking back to the staging area. I was skeptical until I played with it. What a great surprise.

Indeed.

If there one was one thing we carry that I would tell ANY person who uses a marker that resembles the balance of a real weapon it would be this: http://www.specopspaintball.com/index.asp?...WPROD&ProdID=46

It's an essential piece of equipment that I just simply cant do without now. The whole team swears by them and we would feel naked without them.

I need to get some better photos that showcase how cool this product is.

Can you post pictures of how the sling attaches to the marker and how the a marker with sling attaches looks in different positions??

It is hard to get a feel for it from the website pics.

thanks,

And by the way, I recommend Denny Chalker's book, One Perfect Op. It is not quite as good as PEE SHOOTER Marcinko's Rogue Warrior, but a good book on the Teams. Makes me wish I had gotten my Budweiser.

From those who own a Chalker Sling, is it worth the money? Its it better than a normal sling? I was just looking for feedback from anyone who has it, how it feels, fits, quality? thanks!

I LOVE IT!! I cannot imagine playing w/out it.

I made my own chalker sling with some 2" strap, 1" strap and the wife's sewing skills. It took 20 minutes to put together and $11 in parts. I will try it this weekend and give a "review"

Well, I used my custom made chalker today and here is the +/- in my mind.

Good: 1. The hands free is really nice between action, and since the chalker has two shoulder straps I never felt tired.
2. I put a quick release on my gun, so if i needed to disconnect in the middle of some action I never had to look down or fiddle with it...just popped it off.
3. I can put my position patch on my shoulder straps....Sweet!
4. Never ever got in the way
5. easy two handed reload instead of awkward one hand

Bad: 6. I wish I had made the gun attachment adjustable
7. Easy target for casual paintball friends to tease

I think I'll stick with my $11 chalker set-up

It would be nice if you had some instructions or some good pictures. It would be apreciated.

How does the chalker work with/interact with a vest?

I have a ranger vest and it works fine. I just finished drawing up instructions, so anyone who is interested can PM me. I only ask that if you decide to make it...post a review so we can keep the thread active. pics to come.

Better yet...email me and i can send you the attachment as a pdf
