11 January 2009 - 08:28 PMSPECIALLY cause its winter. i mean, i dont even PUMP in cold weather cause of co2 issues
I use HPA only in all my markers but I know guys that run co2 in the winter and they have almost no problems so don't let that be your deciding factor. I live in Minnesota and we play all winter sometimes the temps are in the 20's or 30's. Obviously HPA is better in these conditions but if you run your co2 on a remote you won't have a ton of problems.
Just know that HPA tanks have to be hydroed every... is it 5 or 3 years? nayways, it's like a good $100 - $200 depending on the tank. However, performance wise, WAY BETTER period.
Have you ever had a tank hydro'd?! If you payed $100 you got jammed my friend!
It only costs about $30 and re-hydro is usually every 5 years (3 years at some, but very few fields)
I would recomend jumping on PBnation and finding a used HPA with 3 or 4 years of hydro left. You should be able to find a 68 4500 for $100 or less. Just make sure the person has good feedback so you don't get scammed. Ebay also works and sometimes you can even find a new HPA that is a year old (meaning it has 4 years left before hydro) for $30 or $40 off the original price that way you save a little cash and you stil have 4 years before you have to get the tank hydro'd. If you have the money you can be safe and go new. I have bought tanks both ways and I am happy with all of them ( I have 4 so I have plenty of air for outlaw games)
11 January 2009 - 06:57 PMI have been working construction as well since highschool and I have done similar things to coworkers and people working under me. Work is one thing, paintball is another. You may disagree but please hear me out.
We play a sport that sadly is not growing as quickly as it used to be. If we want our sport to stay afloat we need to help promote it and that requires us to put up with some of the not so bright things noobs do. I agree there are some people that jost "don't get it" when it comes to paintball or probably life in general. But I would have to say from experiance that the majority of noobs comming to the fields really do want to learn and inprove their skills.
A lot of new players are on the forums trying to learn as much about the sport as they can, I know I was when I started playing. How do you think they would feel if they saw this 19+ page thread about how stupid everyone thinks noobs are? I would be willing to bet it would make them much more hesitant to talk to experianced players at the fields.
I play on a pretty experianced team and I hear noobs saying stuff about my marker and gear all the time. Yes, some of it is pretty funny and some of it is purely because they don't know any better. I choose to "kindly" explain things to them because I understand that they are the future of the sport I love. I also realize that someday some of those noobs are going to be pretty good players and I want them to remember me as someone that helped them rather than made fun of them when they start looking to join a team.
This is just my opinion and I don't expect everyone to agree with me, but just think about it. This will be the last post I have on this thread because I am not going to argue about this.
11 January 2009 - 03:23 PMWhat is the most noob thing I have ever heard? Hmm....Maybe a bunch of "experianced" players talking about how stupid noobs are! Yeah...cuz none of us ever said anything stupid when we first started playing.
Maybe insted of getting all anoyed with the new players you should try to explain things to them and help them better understand the game rather than rip on them.
11 January 2009 - 02:55 PMBasicly the Etek is the ego of the previous year internals wise.. Etek=06 ego, etek2=07 ego. The frames on the eteks are a bit bulkier/heavier but you probably won't notice. You will probably notice a little more kick in the etek due to not having the zik kit.
I shoot an 08 ego and I think it is worth every cent. However, if you don't want to spend that kind of $ there is nothing wrong with the eteks and you can pick up the tek 2s for about $550 right now.
