I'm starting to consider what I want to get for my new back up gun, I want it for this season, and then will probably try to find a 2 4 1, for my Eg07, what ever back up I get, for a droid. If you choose the Marq7/rapper say which and why. Closer I now realize may not be the best option as a back up. I would also most likely be looking for rapper/7 with 4 eyes, and UL'd PM7.

closer. you'll have 2 primaries because of how awesome it is. Plus, first closer on the forums I think.

Why closer over rapper, and marq? I guess I'm slightly confused on how their internals differ, or is it just different milling?

Reading up more on the closer it seems like that would make my 07 a back up. So I guess it's more between the rapper, and 7.

Cyborg. Fastest marker on Earth until Ego released the SL8R. I'm talking about the '06, btw, not the '07. ;) Pick any Borg, but personally I'm waiting until Cup for the '08. :D

I have no backup. Just sell the 07 ego and get a droid or a closer.

MacDev>all, IMO. The Droid is like a single-tubed Borg as far as performance goes, but a little less efficient (1700+ instead of 1900+). It's all your preference.

Get rid of the garbage Ego and get anything on the list.

Seriously, don't try to 241, its a PITA. Just sell the ego. Bigred is a fanboy, anything on that list will be fine. I think the PM7 would be at the bottom of the list for me though.

I like the PM7, but let me ask you this. Why do you need a back up? I've played many years and in many tournaments and NEVER needed a back up. In fact, the most my "back ups" ever get used is when someone else's gun goes down! If you take care of your primary, it'll take care of you.

However, I do know that sometimes somethings happen. If your primary goes down, you would probably have enough time to fix it (especially if you know your gun - makes it easier to diagnose problems.) The way I see it, if you really feel the need to have a backup, you should have one very similar to your primary - operation, weight, length, trigger pull, everything. Getting a spool valve when you shoot a poppit valve will feel incredibly different in a tournament, especially if you don't have much trigger time on it (which most backups sit in gear bags forever until people decide to sell them.

Personally, I don't call my extra guns back ups. I call them my gun whore collection!

Now, where's the option for "Save Your Money and Play More/Enter More Tournaments?"
