    Not so much the Fusions, but a lot of the marker stuff as well. From what I understand, a lot of Spec Ops marker mods were designed in collaboration with Tippmann.

    As for the quality going down, depends how you look at it. If we're looking at 98s and before, a lot of the markers were pretty much the same sort of design, and lately, we're seeing a lot of different things. Some of course are more successful than others. I for one would have loved to see the C3 have progressed into another marker (preferably one that didn't crisp people's hands on occasion), for example. I thought the A-5 was a fantastic progression from the 98, and the cyclone was quite a clever loader design. I'm hardly a fan boy by any stretch, but it's nice to see Tippmann trying different things and moving into different goods.


    By in collaboration, do you mean they actually helped design or did they just give Spec Ops the specs on the end cap sizing, etc.? :P

    Funny how there is so much of that stuff around labeled Tippmann now.


    I don't really know for sure, but I'm pretty sure the X-7 was largely a cooperative venture with Tippmann and Spec Ops. http://www.tippmann....ails.aspx?id=25 < This article pretty much backs what I've been saying. Between promotions and developing goods, they've been working together since 2006.

    It's amusing how people think this will necessarily mean a drop in quality while toting Spec Ops as being a flagship of quality. Are people forgetting Tippmann and Spec Ops have a long ongoing partnership? That hasn't hurt either company, and as far as I'm concerned, Tippmann hasn't made anything that's been really bad quality. I doubt they're going to tool around too much with NXe's products, since they probably bought the company for what it made, not in spite of it.

    As for people's concerns about where stuff is manufactured, I'm pretty sure Tippmann deals entirely with US parts and products.

    Let's just see what happens before we pass judgment, shall we?

    Congrats on the post! A friend of mine and myself wrote an article a few months ago on the Facebook group -addicted to paintball- in that same e-zine. It's a great way to get your foot in the door.

    Well, if I happen to wander to that part of the province, I'll make sure to give you some head's up first Eskimo! I extend my range on occasion, so you never know.
