I've been thinking, what will happen if I use use a 50 round hopper on my VS2? I can get 20 games with a half a case and 40 with a case comparing to 6 using half and 12 games using my Apache. So now I want to hear everyone's opinion and comments about this.

I shoot 50rds in about 3 seconds with any of my electro's off the break. Good luck getting through a game with that.

you'd need smaller pods.

IF you want to conserve ammo, buy a pump. Still... last Saturday I wound up going through like 700 rounds over 8 hours of play with my Cocker. Or, you could get yourself a good barrel kit, underbore (will give you MUCH better accuracy, the downside is you run the risk of barrel breaks, again I shot my Cocker most of the day with either the 686 or 683 backs on my Sly and didn't break a ball using Formula13, so the choice is up to you) and shoot less. If you take your time and plan your shots, you'll go through a lot less ammo. Not to mention you could run into feeding issues with a shake 'n bake.

The break would kill it and you would have to buy smaller pods cuz if you reload and still have 100 rounds in a 150 round pod it'll break your paint, then you wont be very happy.

You could try a gravity feed hopper 200 I say the 200 over the 50 in that you can youse your pods to fill it. Just run with the eyes on, and bump your dwell up all the way. It will take more will power on your part not to open up and burn threw your paint. Learn to play more like a pump player.
Ran mine last weekend on a private feild with gravity feed,works but is a little anoying right when you need a round and no round in marker, but no breaks and every one else had a mech. so I was tring to tone it down. Playing W/ coworkers and friends. 4 hours 1/2 case small speed ball field.

Thank you for your replies. Just thinking about shaking the hopper and at the break with a bunch of noobs shooting at anything that moves is not fun, so I'll stick with my Apache and try to conserve paint (due to my budget). I'ts going to be a challenge for me and it can improve my skills and may buy a pump in the near future.

lol, i use a homemade 15 round 45* ghetto angled tube feed on my pilot once in awhile and i just dont shoot off the break, i just work on gettin closer, sometimes it works, sometimes not. but that's just what i do once in awhile when i want to conserve a little paint

UPDATE: I just bought a PMI Trracer as my first pump and will my 48/3000 tank work on it??

Will it screw into the air adapter/valve on the Traccer?

I Think it will, it should arrive this week i was just wondering if it works well with air and not co2

Is there a way to add a bottom line?

Depends on if an ASA will screw into the bottom of the grip frame. Mine has a Euro-style grip and that's out of the question. Some you can, though.

I don't see why there'd be an issue with HPA if the marker'll accept CO2. CO2 is horrible, and if it can use that **** and come up kicking and fighting, then HPA can only help it.

You can always get a bottom line setup on a Traccer. You have to buy an adapter, and they can be a pain in the arse to find. Then you have to get the tank thread to macro fitting adapter and screw it in the back. Run the hose from asa on the bottom to the adapter in the back bottle adapter. It can be a pretty nice pump then, but it costs a little. Im thinking 30 to get it to be bottom line'd.

BTW- Where do you play at? Im moving back to Mesa, and I play pump and semi too.

So i just got my trracer today and questions:
1. How many shots can iget out of a 12gram co2

2. When you pull the handle back, shouldn't the hook on the hammer hook up to the bolt even if there is no air supply?

1.) 25 shots or so.
2.) Nelsons do not cock unless there is air pressure in the marker.

I think you can get more than 25 a 12gram. Im pretty sure if the internals are in good shape, oiled, and maybe polish them, youll get in the 30s. Replace the stock powertube with a lapco one and I bet you can get in the low 40s.

I wouldn't doubt it could do more, but using 25 shots as a baseline has never disappointed me. Different markers get more, but by using a lower number I don't get screwed.

my markers (2 of which are spyders) get about 33 rounds from one 12 gram...

Yea, but the ones starting around 25 Im going to bet are droppping off if its a Spyder with 12grams
