I was excited about the CPro. The E-Grip at an affordable price was nice. Never got one though. Then, it just kinda went downhill from there. I actually like the X7 though.

I saw the CP as a rehash of a 7 year old gun. I was really hoping for something new. By the time the C3 came out, it was too late for me.

My dad likes the X7, but, hes more of a milsim type of person that plays speedball with me and my friends.

I dont really like it, but of course others will, and because it can be bought with all the stuff together on it, im sure it will sell like crazy for christmas.

I haven't seen it in action yet so I will reserve my opinions for later but from what I can see, it doesn't seem anything special.  I think the X-7 would be very appealing to a new emerging paintball crowd but to veterans like so many of us it doesn't seem like anything special.

And who says you have to modify it at all?  Or modify it with only the parts provided?  I'm sure there are those out there that can come up with "something new"...  After all, that's what we do.

Yeah, too bad more people weren't like that though.

And i personally love the custom pro, i plan to get one someday.  Maybe even custom make an ebolt for it, if I don't do that with my a-5.

I also have dreams of an ebolted and milled speedball a-5.  It'll still have a cyclone, i don't care what anyone says! :P

I had that dream once. Except I was going to drill a hole off the top and make it centerfeed. The mill all that extra crap of the A-5, get a Palmers reg, and some other stuff.

Seeing as paintball is still a young sport is still developing rapidly, and the pace at which it is changing is only getting faster, I think this would be the marker that Tippy would go with. Though I would like to see a new pump on the market. The C3 I guess is ok....but something about propane right next to me isn't so attractive and I am a welder and use flammable gasses all the time.

here is a nice example of a custom Tippy, sl-68 II with a a-5 flatline, shroud milled, pwdercoated, and wood highlights. Made by Ken at K&P Customs
KPCS All I can say is wow does that thing shot, when I saw it used it was the best performance from a flatline I have seen before.

If tippmann wants to get on the wagon again, they should look at the fact pumps are coming back, and coming back strong.

Paintball isn't young per se, but I agree. New tippmann is lame-o.

I think the X7 was a  waste of development time.
They could have made all those "custom" parts to fit the A5 and the M98... Then made a new gun all together.

This thing is an A5 with a fancy Cyclone, and it actually weighs more.
Besides, take the Cyclone from it with the "Enhanced Performance" and throw it on an A5.. There ya go, yer up that 5bps that the X7 claims to have.

I hope that everybody else goes and gets one, it'll just make the M98's and the A5's a little more special out on the field.

Waste of time, waste of effort. They should have come up with a new Gun altogether, not rip-off their other gun.
