ok please stop saying to buy hpa im not going to, if i had 150 bucks to waste i would.   and dont say   ohhh just buy a cheap one for 75 or whatever.   if i would ever buy a hpa tank it would have to shoot over 1000 paintballs,   and ony the 4500 ones do that. and those are expensive,  plus tippmann says hpa is only little advantage over co2  unless you have a low pressuse kit,  which is about 120 bucks. 

anyway.  is the stock hose long enough for the x-core?

yea u arent gonna waste your money if u buy an hpa tank its one of the best upgrades and investments u can make with your gun for these reasons
1. cheaper fills at about .25 cents per fill with scuba
2.Much more consistent shots and FPS
3.Some markers' internals can be frozen by co2 which can lead to some serious problems

And the thing u said about macrolines is total bs they are safe and if u get a hole in it its only gonna empty the tank

The thing tipmann says about the hpa thing is bs they just want u to buy there stuff from them so they can make money

Only use co2 if yer only gonna play once a month, get HPA if yer playin every weekend or sometimes on the weekdays.....like myself, I only go play once a month and by doin that I save hundreds of dollas.

Why did you even make this thread? if after one answer you make up your mind i think you shouldn't have made it and No i'm pretty dang sure the stock hose wont work without a coil and possible kink and i've heard good and bad about macroline so cant tell you that and HPA is much better with or without the lp kit the lp kit just unleashes the true potential of it all

Ok man I use macro line along with "you wont see me" also uses macro line, we have both never had any problems with it. To make it easy on yourself buy this kit. The kit includes the macro lines which can be cut to lenght, 1 90* fiting, and 1 straight fiting. Trust me this is the right kit I have the setup. Dont forget to pick up a vertical adapter up also from www.countypaintball.com .

Go HPA is ur best bet. Theres many advantages of it over Co2. IF u dont then get macroline. If 90% of people told u it breaks, then those 90% of people are idiots and either installed it wrong, or dont take care of their markers. Macroline is durable, and ive never seen any blow a hole in it.

I have the same position on macroline as D-Ballzz. It seems like if you pull on the macro, it'll just come off or rip or something. The steel won't budge at all. The only problem is finding the right size but that is a one time thing for the entire life of you gun.

The stock hose doesn't have to fit perfectly. You can bend it a little to make it short enough. I did that with with mine and it doesn't look bad at all. As long as you have the 90* fittings, you can have the hose go up and close to the gun as opposed to sticking half a mile out.

If you don't even play at a field, there is no point of having nitro. There are no refs that are going to chrono your gun. If you shooting at 300fps, who cares. Everyone else is your playing with because there is no way to chrono. Velocity spikes... Doesn't matter. -No refs are going to kick you out of the woods. If you have a good barrel and good paint, your set. A StarFire bolt will help.($10)

Sounds like youve been playin in yer backyard too much.....no chrono's at a field, apparently you wasnt payin attention where exactly the chrono's were located......that would explain yer statment.
