Sounds like most pepole don't like kingmans/spyders but not to the extreme I don't. On my field pepole around here are nothing but tippmanns and occansionaly spyders and most the time pepole just unload on them they consider spyder the devil of paintball I agree to, but they do alright when they work.

Brass eagle is VERY good at what they do, which is, as I mentioned, providing tentative players with an affordable starting option.

^^^ reb is right, my first gun was a blade, then i purchased an avenger, then my a-5, then my minimag, all i still have, all still work

PLus it isn't just brass eagle, brass eagle is part of a larger corperation refered to now as K2 companies, Brass eagle, JT, WGP, etc. so good things come out of the same place

plus if there wasn't brass eagle there would be viewloader things which mean no revvy's and no eggs

so two of the most popular hoppers would not be around, plus their co2 tanks (being made out of steel) last FOREVER

I'm going to agree with County  and Reb on this one. I also do like the Ion quite a bit. The whole trend of more marker for less money and more competition instead of lawsuits, should bring down prices some. I though some of the stuff was and is being priced right out of the market. Entry level,on the other hand, is just that. If all that was available was what most of us have now for guns. Would we have even started playing. No, most of us would have said you're kidding me? I can't even start to afford that.

I agree with Armotech just because their stuff doesn't work well and is insanely expensive.  I hate SP for their bussiness tactics, but their guns are good.  Brass Eagle isn't so bad if you're a total begginer and just trying out the sport.  DYE makes incredible products, but you're right; they are insanely overpriced.

Armotech and Ariakon are too different companies. Ariakon doesnt produce the Zues. The Armotech WG models known as Generation I had a lot of problems but now have pretty much fixed them. Armotech didnt make the speedball guns, their sister company Speedball Inc(or a similar name) made them. Ariakon never made any either, but distributed the Nemisis(which is made by CY paintball I believe) and Ariakon just believed it was a great gun. Too milsim players, Armotech and Ariakon are the best milsim markers out there and are top of the line items. You cant dis it, till you know it.
You call the Eagle, Eagle does the rest.

I would take SP off the list (Guess Why?)

Also, I would add System X, Extreme Rage, and Psycho Ballistics. I have had nothing but bad experience with all of them.

Armotech was not changed to Ariakon. They are two seperate companies, which split from a partnership of sorts due to legal issues.

Armotech makes some damned good looking markers; the new WG-65+ and WG-47 which are due out soon are undoubtedly the most visually accurate M4 and AK47 MilSims out there (I'm disregarding cRap-4, as their products are junk). They also eprform very well.

Ariakon has recently released two excellent pistols that up the bar int erms of performance, and their Sim-4 and Sim-5 lines continue to be popular, with more upgrades and customizations coming out all the time- and, importantly, stock barrels that are actually damned good. No aftermarket barrel required, which saves money right there.

The prices on these are a bit mroe expensive, but they are the crème de la crème of MilSim- compare those prices to the high end Speedball markers, and tell me where money's being wasted...

I dont have a big problem with smart parts, there guns are ove though. But wtf is with dye. All of there products are way overpriced. Damn it's like $185 for a titanium boomstick. I did hear that WGP sold out to Brass Eagle. Is that true.

^^^didi not already mention that

I don't hate paintball companies period, heck its paintball stuff.

I dislike some things about some companies. FOr example i think that such things a GTA expansion chambers are overpriced and of lower quality.

I don't like some things that some companies produce. THough if you lable not liking a company based on one thing, well then you are judging a book by its cover.

DYE, is a bit procy but you can always guarentee that their gear and stuff is quality.

I definatly think you're wrong when it comes to Armotech. Have you ever tried building your own Mil-Sim... You'll end up spending around the same if not more.

I had a rotten expierence with armotech markers. My brother and I won one at the West point game last year. Tooled around with it in the yard a few times before we even had a chance to take it in the field, you know, put it through it paces to see how it works. Well, before its first game, It started leaking like an SOB. I fixed the leak, but now it doesnt get air through it. I've torn the thing down, all the seals are fine, I replaced them all, nothings busted, it just doesnt work. I have deemed it a piece of crap.

32 Degrees a couple years ago, I bought a 32 Degrees "Defender" and it broke the second I first shot it.  I tried emailing them many times, and got nothing back.  And I was out 200 something bucks because of that.

Wow, they covered your shipping, even? First I've heard of a company doing that.
