What's a drop forward use for? Is it just for looks?

it brings your tank further forward. but on the downside, it raises the total height of your gun if you shoulder your tank.

Most of your gun is covered by your body anyway, and you can hold it lower on your shoulder to equalize the 2 inch drop. With my set up the 2 inch drop down and the 3 inch forward, it makes it feel like small co2 tank, especially with the carbon fiber stubby tank. Its great for woodsball, but I guess I don't play speedball much at all. Heres a Pic:

Does it feel better having drop forward when you shoot?

I don't know about other people but I can shoot it like a pistol because its so light. I could also without the drop forward but it was a more bulky.

yeah, you can tuck it in more, but i dont like to.

it makes the gun more compact and easier to move. i dont like it because i don't get enough support and i'm taller, so i have trouble aiming down the barrel.

Used to make the marker fit the player and a small way to make it your marker.

They are horrible and useless. They throw out your form and make it so you lose whatever pathetic little understanding of proper form you had to begin with. Just IMO, I hate them.

I see a dropforward as a tool to balance my gun. By bringing the tank forward, your taking some of the weight of the end of the tank and bringing it to the center of the gun. Making the front/rear weight ratio better.

Thanx guys. I think I'm gonna stick with the set-up of my marker and not get a drop forward.
