Exactly i for one love smart parts i dont care what they do their products are among the best they have as far as im concerned the BEST barrels from low priced for those on a buget to top dollar and their guns are magnificent so they sued some companies big deal their products is what counts thats all when it comes to woodsball guns tippmann has everyone beat but when it comes to speedball guns and barrels you CANT beat smartparts

It isnt the fact that they are sueing people, it is the fact that they are modifying patents to be able to win lawsuits. Plus with their dad being a lawyer and one of the Gardner brothers also being a lawyer, they pretty much have all the free legal advice they need.

SP is smart, except what some people (the guy above me) dont realize is that they are severely limiting the players choices of markers. I just hope WDP's parent company can get the lawsuit they want about the way a gun is controlled by a board. If WDP can get that patent and the lawsuit, they will probably be able to put SP out of business.

God i love WDP.

took the words right out of my mouth.



Smart business would also be moving factories to third world countries so you can make shirts for 35 cents apiece with twelve-year-old kids laboring for 14 hours/day, while still selling them for their normal price in the United States.

Actually SP products are nice, but the owners and their business practices suck. Maybe if people werent so dumb they would see all SP is doing is hurting other companies, which in turn hurts us, the PLAYERS.

You realize that they were issued a new patent in June with 4 claims that basically patents every single electropneumatic gun in existance right?

Thats not smart business, thats exploiting the patent system. They flat out know that small businesses dont have the money to fight off a lawsuit by nazi parts no matter how in the right they are.

They're ruining the sport for one.

And pretty much forced the discontinuation of two of my favorite markers which are superior to every SP product.

yeah.....who really cares if they patent everything.  The product is still there isn't it?  It just says smart parts on it.  And by the way, i really like my sp barrels, so I dont know why everyone is complaining.

If you really suck, dont even try

they got a patent for something they didnt invent and over the years made it so broad that they can sue any other electros (at first they tried to get the parent as broad as it is now, but the court threw it out so they patented just the shocker and modified it over the years), their is a rumor going around they are going for another suit very soon. I beleive that is monopoly but im not sure.

I dont like them becuase.

#1 They are known for just blowing off customers.
#2 I dont like their products, and if they get it their way I wont have a choice but to buy them.
#3 Because of them I cant get the viking or xmag I always wanted, I can see people looking back at this time saying "remember when their used to be a bunch of choices for electros other than impulses and shockers?"
