^^ Yea, my friends who had Spyders didn't have good luck with them. Alot of problems with the trigger internals and such. My tippman 98 though... that thing was a work house 24/7. Ya ya ya, it was only semi and pretty much sucked. But there was no better feeling than taking a few extra sneaky steps in order to shoot some guy in the facemask who was carrying a $2000 gun...

played semi-pro many years ago, sponsored by Piggly Wiggly.. way back when the .68 automag was the best gun on the market, before angels and autocokers...
I still have a F1 Illistrator one of the first high end markers, made in late 80's and is one hell of a sniper rifle

Wish I still played. First gun was a Spyder E99, then went to Smart Parts Impulse, then went to Bob Long Texas Storm Intimidator. Had all the latest and greatest parts, loaders, backpacks, and stuff like that. Played at semi-pro level, took 2nd one time outa 350 teams at the NPPL in Chicago. But going to college and not having enough time kinda cut that out. It'd be nice to take the gun out again sling some ropes.

no offense if you like them but I still wouldn't call Angels or Autocokers top of the line lol. I've shot all types and by far my favorite was my Texas Storm. nothing like being able to sling ropes at 22 balls per second. or better yet shooting faster than you loader goes lol. stupid halos haha

it wasn't a statement of quality, rather a time line

Fair enough Terry, I do agree with you on that. Angels and Autocokers were some of the first high end to come out. I've shot a few of each, the angel was ok, it was just weighted weird for my taste and the body style was just off. never been a big of autos. Had one, too many problems with the whole shooting mechanism and scheme. sold it after 2 weeks of owning it lol.

I used to play paintball. I played with an autocoker. Had a black magic body, system x e-trigger, Smart parts freak system barrel, war gas 4500psi 64cu carbon compressed air tank and I had an empire relaoder hopper.(not the best loader, I know)

I now play airsoft. I have Airsoft GI Custom G4 A2 blazing hawg M4. The base gun is made by G&G and its electric with pneumatic blow back.

used to play PB. I had a Tippman A-5. That gun was bad ass. On the speed ball game, I would sit atop the hill and lay down cover for my team to move up. We play at my buddys. He has a valley that is the shits for playing in. two big hills on either end. I miss my A-5. Now I have an Alpha Black. just like the A-5 but a budget gun. I have not played in over 4 years tho. Only ran two hoppers of balls thru the alpha black.
