29 March 2011 - 05:15 PMyeah i dont have a force fed hopper and sounds like its just a waste of money to me right now.. i have always leaned towards the sportshot style for abilty to handle 50 round pods while still holding extra paint.. i have only played with my pump once in its stock class set up so now looking to play some open class
29 March 2011 - 04:50 PMThat is all up to you really. You need to find how you play and what you need, trouble is you won;t find that out without playing. Get a cheap gravity feed and see how you like em. Trick is finding what size you need for your playing style. Like if i am going out on a walk-on woodsball game, I would usually bring a 50 round hopper and maybe 5 tubes to reload with. (I can go through about 200 rounds a day of play tops). Scenario i would strap myself down with as many tubes as i could hold. Still prefer small hopper though, just easier to see around and lighter to carry. You may find you want more ammo cause you use an auto trigger a lot. This is all up to how you play and shoot
For speedball i generally rock stock class. I bring maybe 3 tubes tops and use the stock class feed. I wouldn't want a huge hopper for speedball unless you are a back guy. Too big of a target. Small hoppers are fine cause you can auto trigger with them still and pump out ~3 shots before needing to shake.
thanks thats some good stuff to think about but pretty much i am gathering a force fed hopper is unneeded which was one of my major wonders.. have u ever used an electric hopper on your pumps?
29 March 2011 - 04:30 PMso it comes down to preference and what feels most comfortable to you? and does any one have a preference when they are playing speedball or woodsball or they are playing in a big game/senerio?

04 March 2011 - 03:31 PMNothing really low quality out there really except for hand made stuff. Any thing you buy in stores will be fine. For years i just used the $3 ronin wrist holster.
I really love my forearm guard. But if you don't have big forearms or long ones, you may want to give them measurements and get a custom one. The belt one i like too. Just not a normal thing for me
PB mafia does make excellent gear...www.pbmafia.com. Quality is top notch too.
Like was said, take some tubes and place them on your body in various spots and find out how you like it. Everyone is different. And different games may call for different harnesses. Like if i am playing long woodsball games i use my Smokin SCP pants and put like 3 tubes per leg (Front and back) or use the PB mafia leg drop and put like 7 tubes in it. If i am just playing speedball then i only use a PB mafia wrist harness or Spec Ops Forearm guard and put like 3 tubes in there and 2 12 grams.
everyone has their own likes of what they use and what they don't like. Practice kneeling and moving in your living room and see where you can easily get tubes off your body from your normal stances and positions
hey thanks very good tips on what to look for and think about hopefully this helps other people also..
