What kind of paintball do you play? What kind of paintball do you plan on playing? How often do you play? How much money do you have to spend? Do you like to work on your guns? Do you prefer spool valve or poppit valve type guns?

Lots of questions, I know, but we can't pick a gun for you otherwise!

What Kind of Paintball do I play?
Speedball/X ball mainly

How often do you play?
I play almost every weekend, to everyother weekend in season here (April-Dec)

How much money do you plan on spending?
Would like to keep it under 1,000 (So the Droid would have to be used)

Do you like to work on your guns?
Minimally, I prefer just to customize with small upgrades

Do you prefer spolve valve, or popit?
I have little to no preferance

cyborg 07? just beacause its efficent, shoots ropes (which you need in speedball/xball) and looks nice. that and Mcdev (sorry if i spelled it wrong...) make extremly good pruducts.

Though I would try them all out if you can, makes life easier, and maybe you'll not like something on one of the guns once you try it out.

I say Ego7/Dm7, but it's all preferance.

I love Egos due to the low maintenance, and it's dead sexy looks. I haven't shot and Ego7, but I loved both of my old Ego6's in the past.

Dm7's require a bit more maintenance than the Ego, but when it's tuned in, it's awesome. Haven't shot the DM7, but my DM6 that I currently own is fantastic.

I say go to your field, shoot them both, and make your decision.

Im gonna have to say my personally favorite, Ebladed autococker. You could get a nice Karnivore and up it or get a new loader for under $1000

If you're like that, get a Borg or a Droid. Both have seemingly endless life before you need to relube them. I ended up wasting lube for ****s 'n giggles on my Borg because there was nothing else I could do with it... PBK trigger's my only recommended upgrade for one, anything else is sheer preference.

I know where to get Droids and Borgs new and used come to think of it :) I have a bunch of other news but I'm not allowed to say :(

Does it have to do with me being stupid and selling mine before upgrades came out to make it smoother? You can answer with "eh" and "neh" and not violate your terms, I think. ;)

LOL...........not for the 06........when properly tuned that might still be my favorite marker of all time! Just requires the right settings and adjustment's. Funny thing is they are the stock settings........just have to fix all of the things people have changed and follow James' tuning instruction's as PBK and others made their own tuning instructions which never worked. Also if you put aftermarket parts in the 06's they are very hit or miss and can make them worse!

I'm talking about all of the companies jumping on the Droid for aftermarket parts! More to come but I have a feeling you'llo see some interesting stuff! Then there is the new Cyborg :)

Yup, turns out the bolt stick issue on my '06 was actually caused by orings on the Snakeskin bolt being too large... Gofigure. :)

I know the new Borg's coming out, which is why I'm saving my lunch monies again. :D The question is, should I save more faster, or can I relax for a while? (trying to avoid you "giving too much info") I can't wait for it, but I'm going to make the assumption that it will TOTALLY blow these new Ego's out of the water... ;)

You can relax a bit.........turns out the Droid is such a hit aftermarket companies are finally trying to produce stuff for an MD marker and MD still can't keep up with demand!

I'd say it's the other way around... but ok.

Gotta go with the Ego7. Never shot a Droid, DM7's are not comfortable to me, and... well yeah.

Due to a recent splurge in cash (Magna, RF, and 08 Gear bag) I think I have to chose either the EGO or the DM7. So looks like you guys are leaning towards the EGO right?

If your going pin valve...............I'd say 07 Borg all the way!

'06 Borg > Ego7. Just ask Muddy Taco if you don't believe me! :)

Well I have a pending deal for a lnib Eg07, for $630. Should I take it or keep looking.

Not bad for 07 but i would skip ego all together. '06 borg i had was way smoother, had less kick and shot more consistent.
