Looks like rain this weekend. I haven't used an electronic marker in the rain. The stock grips on my new MR3 are so lousy, it actually scares me.

I've ordered the MR Flux Wraparound Grips which I think will help, but should I be worried?

Anybody play in the rain?

You can, but it isnt the greatest.

I wouldnt do it. If it is usually rainy where you are Id suggest picking up a Mech frame for days like so.

if it was me i would just wrap the handle in something like electrical tape but then again i am kind of careless, but i would wrap it and forget about it.

It worries me too. I was thinking about finding some 1/16" gasket material to make a cut-out to fit the gap. The charger hole and the mode selector will still be a problem though.

use liquid gasket stuff and make your own seal!

I use electric tape on my openings under the grips and over the switch and for my evlution 3 hopper i have a rubber boot on it.

Sneekypeat and myself played in a scenario a few weeks back and it just poored we both were using MR2 W/eye with no problems. There just about Identical with the MR3 in every way besides the board and body kit. So go ahead dont be afraid to use it in the rain, but I wouldnt be confident to leave it out in a storm overnight ;)

even with the new mr raparound flex grip mine still has a gap so i went honky with it and used crazy glue..... it seals crack and can be prided open if needed

^if you were that worried about it you would have bein better off to use silicon that way it wouldnt tear your grip when you go to take it off.

Is there a grip where I could be worry free about it. I know Spyder made a wrap around grip. Would that be any good?

not really. silicon, RTV gasket gel, or electrical tape would be your best bet.

the wrap around grips help alot but do not compleatly solve the problem

Playing in the rain is fun as heck, I just hate when you just step into a random endless hole of mud. That sucks

i would wear boots, but they make me too clumsy during speedball games, so i'm looking for some good treaded hiking boots. just enough ankle protection in case i trip in the woods, but still light enough to run in.

That is proably a good idea, we do some speedball, more woodsball than anything but that would be a good trade off, one of the guys I play with play with cleats but they are high top in case we play in the woods.

I play with low-top cleats. Never had a problem as I always pay attention to the ground and don't step on anything that might twist my ankle. ;)
