About 6 years ago I was real heavy into painball and had my own 5 man team. At that time, the gun to have and what we used was the smart parts ion. I know things have changed drastically and there is an indoor field within an hour drive of me and I just thought about maybe getting back into it. However, I don't want to spend a thousand bucks doing it. The main game that I will be playing is speedball. I'm not much into woodsball (too slow of a game for me) What are the good set ups out there now? Thanks.

I'm on the same boat with you.... I've got 2 e-blade autocockers... one's an E1, the other an E2... but anyhoo, yea they're just collecting dust in my closet right now and you probably can't even buy parts for them anymore... I dunno what stuff's out there these days that's affordable tho... look for a decent used Ego??

I last played paintball 2 or 3 years ago. The gun I use I bought back in the mid 90s. Its a limited edition super cocker. When I last played it had been at least 10 years since I played before that and I could still wreak havoc on most of the people at the field with that supercocker. Go out and have fun. Try not to get intimidated by the young guys with the new gones that fire 20 rounds a second. It takes only one shot to take them out. Now that the weather has cooled down some I was thinking of going to the paintball field again for some more of that fun.

Man, I miss the eighties.

I decided to get back into paintball myself. I rarely fly my heli's I think the last time I flew was over 2 months ago so I plan to see them all but my Trex 450 sport. I have an Ion with all kinds of upgrades, a Tippman 98 custom, a spyder of some sort not sure exactly. But my favorite is my Ariakon Overlord, one great little sidearm but this is mainly for just playing around.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

I played for the first time in a long time last Saturday. What an adrenaline rush. It's like learning how to fly inverted for the first time. I loved it!! Not to mention, I got a nice workout (which I probably needed )

I have a Supercocker a Spyder and an Angel... with rocking triggers.

You will survive with any gun, but the things that made the biggest differences for me were electronic triggers (rocking) and an electronic eye (so you don't break paint) and an electronic hopper...

and an N2 system instead of CO2.... more shots per tank with less weight in a smaller package.

I have an electric hopper to help feed the balls in. I'm okay without the electronic trigger. I can get around 13 rounds a second with my super cocker before I start to chop balls. I've gone against some of the very nice guns with electronic triggers, including the angel and it doesn't really make them play better. I'm not the best player by no means, but if you can get over the pucker factor from hearing one of those electronic guns unloading several rounds a second, you can give them a run for the money. It only takes one hit to take them out. The supercocker was the best gun I ever bought. I've had a shocker f/x and a tippman. I also have a spyder I have not fired. The supercocker is the lightest, quietest and most accurate of the ones I have. It made the game more fun for me. I really need to get out and play some more.

Man, I miss the eighties.

The nice thing about the rocking triggers is that it's all me doing the firing.... not a full auto setting. I usually average 23-28 bps with the rocking triggers on the super, and the angel. 13 bps is nice, but in speedball, 23 is nicer

the only thing the angel has over the other guns is feel and balance.
