I personally hope Tippmann does NOT come out with a "high-end" marker. It would just be one more of the million similar markers.

Tippmann makes the BEST woodsball, scenario, entry-level (however you want to categorize them) markers and about 80% of the paintball population plays that style.

Now, if they could come out with something faster, lighter, etc. and keep the Tippmann reliability and general appearance, I'm all for it.

Something new could be anything, including a new barrel plug.

 

As im sure most of you know Wicked Air Sports and tippman have come up with a new board for the E-grip due to be released march first. Did they specifically say that it is a new marker or just something new?

I honestly don't see why one marker is labeled woods while another is labeled speed? On the internet I'm getting the vibe of a speedball marker being light, fast, and accurate. I mean, don't we all want a marker like that? Why can an Angel/Shocker/Timmy not be used in the woods? Now I know this doesn't have to do with the new Tippmann coming out which im very anxious about, but some people have posted "why bother making a speedball gun" and stuff like that. Anyways I think a scenario gun would be excellent for Tippmann to make, they have the rep of having fabulous recreational markers, why not expand into differnt areas of paintball? They might succedd they might not. But I guess we'll all see what Tippmann has up their sleeves March 1st.

^^^^
Speedball and Woodsball guns are designed for different types of play Predator.

TAke for example those companies you mentioned above after a hard day in the woods paintballing they would need major maintenence but a tippy wouldn't/

Now for a tippy on a speedballing course. There is not as fast rate of fire and they tend to be heavier which is bad for running. Also notice that you can UPGRADE to electronic systems if you want, unlike speedballing guns.

I doubt tippmann would release a new gun right now because the A-5 is still selling well. If they were to release anything it would be and upgrade, in my opinion.

If they have a new gun and they are planning to release it great, I'm in store for a new gun to buy. If not, my a-5 gets 300 dollars in upgrades.

My fingers are crossed that they stay out of the speedball world.

It would be stupid for them to make speedball markers. All the tourny players already think tippmann markers are too slow. Nobody would buy it. Not to mention like Mike stated more than %80 of the paintball population still plays woodsball.

^ me too, but if they did make a speedball marker then they would possibly plz the other 20%. all tippmann buyers with 98s and A5s who upgrade to speedball guns will buy it.  what they should do is come out with a speed and woods gun.

woods ballers=happy
speedballers=happy

Yes, Too bad thats nearly impossible. Woods and speed are so different a marker that pleases both would be very hard and expensive to build. Since most of the people that buy tippmanns are new players they aren't looking for something expensive to play with, just something that will get them through the game and isnt going to break when they drop it.

Most tourny guys won't pick up anything that has the Tippmann name on it anyway. They consider them "noob guns" and insufficient for speedball play.

Lets face it, Tippmann is right where it should be, in the woods, creating low cost markers that are durable.

Sounds like a weak attempt to make a speedball gun. I say if they're going to try speedball then they should go all out.

If that is true thats really lame. Its not new and its not very exciting. It will still be heavy. It will still be a 98. It will still not sell to speedballers.

The Tippmann Pro Custom is the replacement for the E-98 Ebolt that Tippmann Sells.

The JCS thing is interesting as well.  I'll give steve a hollar and see if he can dish a little for me...  http://www.bp-usa.com/mkx8.htm...  Looks like JCS is making an XM-8 Mil-sim Marker...
