08 August 2011 - 09:05 AMThe guys in those pictures are speedballers... I'm not, but use almost identical setups. Speed vs. Woods players doesn't matter in this discussion.
Of the 100+ paintball games I've probably played, less than 10 have been "speedball" - I play primarily big-game, scenario woodsball. The type of marker setup I run does not dictate the type of player I am. After years of using an A-5 I moved into the Automag world then into an electro, the only reason I'll ever go back to something like an A-5 is for nostalgic reasons. Lighter-n-tighter is where it's at for me, but again that's just me.
Exactly. Personal preference. I like offset, you like centerfeed. End of discussion.
15 July 2011 - 05:16 AMUse some leaves and ferns to make outlines. I play a sniper position so I had my friend paint a brown base, then he put green tiger stripes over it, then green, tan and brown fern outlines. Then i added cut up camo netting to make it ghillied.

Centerfeed makes it easier to aim, especially when it comes down to being able to play both left and right sides of a bunker, its more balanced. its much much more stable being directly above the support. (that being the marker) and not to mention they can have a low profile. and if you want smaller. use a smaller hopper. Want even smaller? use a 10 round stick feed.
Want EVEN smaller? hand load the paintballs.
dont get me wrong, I have my tippy 98 and I'll play with the offset feedneck.
But by all means unless you ABSOLUTLY hate center feed. and do so with logical and though out opinions. no reason not to use one.
Notice all those players are speedballers? I play woodsball. I use a red dot. I like to sort of "snipe" (not long range, just accuracy). I see your points, but if add a sight, an offset is MUCH more accurate on the first shot with a good barrel and good paint. I don't always use the sight on every shot, but I am an accurate "natural" shooter. I think it's easier for me to shoot natural without a hopper in the way on the middle.
28 April 2011 - 12:55 PMthats very strange that you don't like centerfeed. Hmmmm.
any reason why? center feed markers are more balanced through left and right shooting not to mention support loaders much better.
I'd suggest a used marker if possible. you may be able to pick up SP-1's with the offset feed neck. Classic valved Automags or ones with the RT valve. ( they will have left and right powerfeeds) or a used BT package. BT markers are fantastically simple to tech, well.. same with tippmann's but with the BT its nice to be able to remove the grip frame if need be, helps trouble shoot.
Centerfeed makes it so you can't aim very well, and the hopper sticks up higher. I have used both and don't notice a real difference in balance.
28 April 2011 - 12:52 PMI would go with a BT4. They are EXTREMELY adaptable and well under the price of any Tipmann. Anything that fits a 98 Custom will fit a BT. Also, a BT-4 with E trigger bought separately would be around 190, but E triggers blow through a lot of paint, plus you need a feed system for it. The basic BT has an offset hopper, A5 threads, rails, and a short barrel that isn't that great. They are also fairly quiet compared to the VL Triton II.
