    Posted: 11 June 2006 at 2:56pm

Hello, i went to my local paintball shop, and i while i was getting my HPA tanks filled, i decided to make conversation at the register man.

I asked him if he knew any feilds, and he said woodsball? and i said no speedball. He said well wut gun do u have, i said a tippmann. He started to laugh and said tippmanns suck, and held up a DM6. He said this will blow any tippmann away.

My question is, do you think that he was saying this to buy a better gun, or because its true? thx

it's both. i have a dealer that did the same exact thing to me the other day. he gave me all this B-S and showed me a catalog with a shocker in it and said its the beast of all paintball guns and how bad tippmanns suck. me and all my friends were appauled.. this guy was like 50. i think it was both him trying to get you to buy his merchendise and his hate for tippmanns.

I will post a video of how fast an accurate my tippmann is. i bet it wont blow me away ill post it tonight. around 1030 in marker gallery

NE ohio?

but, not many people think tippys belong on the speedball field.

I myself absolutly did not like my tippy at all, just wasnt for me

yeap NE. I live in Warren.

Not all tippys could hand on the speedball field. mine could, but i dont play speedball. i wouldnt perfer a tippy for speedball anyways. they're too bulky and heavy. if i were playing speedball id want a light compact fast SOB.

I play scenerio. Hostage/war situations.

Of course a DM6 is better than any Tippy...

A tippmann will out last any gun on the market to day and if you all do not like tippmann guns then why do you all post on this forums? It may be a good gun for speedball but it would not last one day with me in the woods.

here's the thing, while many guns may be better than a tippy, a tippy has potential. with an e-bolt, a tippy can keep up with the rest of them (for the most part). also, they are a heckuvalot cheaper. so it depends on where you are trying to go. if you are constantly speedballin, you might want to upgrade, if you are semi-constantly speedballin, you could just ebay an e-bolt.

I do like Tippmann, but I am a realist, I know and accept that there are guns out there that are far better than mine. There is no sense in denying the obvious.

It doesn't matter. A DM will be better than any Tippmann on the speedball field any day. To be honest with you, if what is in your sig is what you have, a DM will blow your marker out of the water. Glazner's, or Gpacker's, or Bruce's 98c's may stand a chance, but yours would not.

It is about sealth in the woods. It is not about stealth in speedball. As for aiming, high-end markers are normally more accurate than low end markers. On an X-Ball field, you Tippmann will not be small enough, or fast enough to keep up with high-end markers. It if were able to compete on that level, everyone would have a Tippmann, and companies would not make high-end guns. Also Marines don't come from West Point. West Point is an Army establisment. Try again.

And stealth has nothing to do with the gun (except, of course, that a DM6 is MUCH quieter than any Tippmann).

A good gun won't make you a better player, but that doesn't mean that one gun can't be better than another gun.

No, Tippmanns don't suck.  But yes, a DM6 is "better" than the vast majority of Tippmanns out there, in most situations.
