well, im getting a job this week, so im looking down the road to about august to october for a new gun.
choices
NXT Shocker
Eclipse Ego Etek
Proto M6
FEP Quest
Hybrid Traitor Fusion
I've Read Reviews on all of them, though i've only tried the Shocker out at my field, feel in love with it. Just want others oppion, since i have to travel a good way to go try the others out. So wanted to know what yall thought. Thank you.

If you like the feel of the shocker, then the shocker, quest and pm6 are probably your best bet. Another option is the PMR - shoots very similarly to the Shocker (my very upgraded shocker shoots much like my PMR) but is much cheaper and much lighter.

All you're really going to get is a lot of people giving different opinions...I know it's not what you want to here, but you'd be better off going the distance and trying those other guns.

if i got the PMR would it be worth it to get the UL frame right away or wait (rember this will be in a month or more.)

THough looking at te prices, i would just stick with the PM6's grips, and the shocker grips were fine(4 me atleast)

UL frame is a feel kind of thing. It doesn't improve performance, but to me they are comfy. They run about 200 bucks right now, but you do get the frame, the grips, the board and trigger, so if you were to replace that stuff individually it's cost evens out.

IMO if you don't mind the ugly gun... Shocker NXT is probably the best bang for the buck, besides a new board... it can pretty much handle it's own. other versions look alot cooler though.

well im just wondering what are the diffrences between the PM6 and the PMR, besides the price.

PMR doesn't have an LPR, relying on it's Boost Forward operating system to be easier on paint. It's got a bit more kick and is a bit louder, but not much, than the PM6 because of that. The PMR also comes with stock polymer parts, none of which are all that bad, but could be better. However, it's lighter because of those parts. PM6 comes with fades, and more colors. I'm sure there's more, but the most anyone else will come up with is that it "feels" better than the PMR. But, last I checked, feel was a matter of opinion.

What ever you do, don't go to PBNation and ask that question. If you do, I might recommend a new flame suit!

ok thanks, well im thinking of trying the PMR out at my local shop (they now have them, or have had them, and the PM6's to. I feel like i've been out of the loop there for a while lol.

And good thing i didnt, was going to, but decided to wait till a response here. THanks!

ya i did landscapeing and mowing lawns. it was ok just wasnt steady. So i got a job at Price Chopper cuz my bro workes there so it made it easy for me. (laugh all you want as i walk to the bank. but now that i work there all my friends want to because i have money:( :) )

You might want to invest in putting away 1/2 in the bank for car/collage, ect.
Trust me it helps.

even though i voted for the quest( because if i had 700.00 dollars i would buy shocker would be my neone in a heartbeat) the next choice
