Hey SOC, I was looking for some fresh opinion on some good Speedball guns...
Just this summer, my home field shut down because of finance problems, they were more of a woodsball-recreation type atmosphere. But now I have moved to a new field that is all about Speedball-Reball. So I would like to buy a new Speedball gun to keep up with the demands of my playing field... (This isn't of course, saying that my decked out Spyders can't keep up, lol)

So if you vote, some brief input would be appreciated... Some pro's and con's and all...

Thanks!

it seems like pretty much everyone that owns a PMR likes it, and it now comes stock w/ a UL frame so I say PMR

Since the 09 PMR comes with a UL frame I would have to go with that. Or a used Timmy is also a good gun for the price.

Gen 3 Timmy. With it set up right it will throw down some paint. I have no problems keeping heads down when Im shooting my Alias.

play with your 08 electra or RS and when you start sucking because your gun doesn't perform they way YOU need it to, then buy a new gun. Otherwise if your good your good and if you suck, you suck.

if you must buy a new gun.

put me down for a timmy

Or a nice A-Bomb... I just shipped mine out but it was a very smooth shooting gun. I would have to say gen 3 Timmy, some people don't like the gen 4s but I think they are pretty nice. I'd get one of them.

Depends on how much money your looking on spending. But I would definately recommend looking at the Protege used or a Marq used. Both can be had as low as 300 now.

i just about sealed the deal on a ripper 2 for ~ 200 (asking price of my DMC)

My Dragon is on the high-end of what Gen3's go for as it's a billet body and has an aftermarket board/ram/regs, and it's probably going to get me about $315 after shipping. You can find Aliases for as cheap as $150 if you look hard enough.

true. i picked a "broken" one up for $150 and sold it for $255 w/o reg.

i found a few under $250 on pbn yesterday.

Don't know how much flak I'll receive for this... BUT... I really don't like the look of a Timmy... If you guys suggest good guns, pictures and/or links would be appreciated...

Maby its just that I've never really seen many timmys, also, does anyone know where I can get a link to clear up all my confusion about all the different names for Timmys, Marqs, Vices, IDK, it gets kind of confusing.

Thanks for all the advice!

Because I have to join the gun pimping parade... :p, as for the looks, there are ALOT of Intimidator millings to go with, not to mention, if you like a Gen 2 body, there's very little work needed to upgrade it. I have to join the rest of the group, Gen2/3 Timmy is the way to go. Nothing like getting a (MSRP) $1400 gun for $200.

After reviewing the links, I'm really liking this whole Timmy deal! They don't seem like very popular guns on the field, All I ever see are, ION's and DM/PM's = (

I really want to shoot one of these guns, I've never even seen a Timmy in reality... This is exciting, I'm gonna go watch some videos!

Thanks for all the info guys!

Timmy's are the backbone of poppit markers. You'll be happy with one. Screw the guys at the field, let them shoot what they want and you shoot what you want.

I'd look for a used PM8. It rips and is very accurate. No problems to date with 3 cases.

My PMR SE is amazing, I love it, no problems to date. I've never used a timmy before though so I can't really say.

Still at this point, I think pretty much any high end gun will do you well, they're all amazing. I guess its best if you can try em out before you buy and fidn the one you like most. I know thats not possible for everyone.. soo just turn to gun whoring :)
