What do you think is the best marker on the market today? DM11? Dye NT? DLX Luxe? Other?

What is best is a very subjective question, so I will answer very simply. The BEST marker is the one you use.

Once you get into the high end markers, they are all very similar, as far as what they are capable of doing. Really, it comes down to personal preference, you have to go, hold all the markers, see how they feel. If possible, shoot them, see how they feel when you are shooting them and make your decision based off what feels best to you. Personally, I would probably buy either an Ego or Geo if I were to buy another high end gun.

Good point Shunut... this is all theoretical though. There is NOOO WAY I could afford any of the markers above... If I got a new marker to upgrade from my spyder MR2, I would probably get a used Proto...

This is like asking whats better, Ford or Chevy or Dodge. Or even asking blond, brunette or redhead. Each have good points & bad points. All I can say about it (markers, trucks & women) is try as many as you can before making a final decision.


Another thing, you dont need the newest model. My Timmies, Gen2 & Gen3, will hang with if not out do anything on the field. Find something that your happy with & play hard.

Best marker is the one that doesn't break down, when your running to bunker someone. I have not yet shot a DM 11, so can't comment. The Luxes and NT's a nice though.

No dodgy!! 98s are like AK47s. Other than the feel of holding them, they are decent.

I'd put my Rail up in that category, or my Phantom, or my Pump Sonix, or my Spimmy, orrrrr......

really, depends on who you ask and what you mean by "best". Most expensive? Most trendy? Most beautiful? Most?????

Owned pretty much everything and must say my old DM6 is still my personal favorite as far as tournament/electro gun. Although currently I wouldn't trade my DM10 with billy wing bolt and yakuza for anything. Its insanely smooth and is better on air then my old SLS ego I just sold.

Most fun to shoot would definitely be my old Eclipse autococker. Ego framed, MQ2 valve, etc. Nothing even compares to its fun factor.

Pump guns, basically anything made by CCM. Although I love a stock class phantom for the challenge factor.


But its all preference, I am a spool guy myself.

That's like the age old question "which came first, the chicken or the egg?". I agree with Shunut, as it all comes down to personal preference and what your budget allows. When you go out to the field ask other fellow paintballers if you can see or try out their markers. Most people are willing to do so, and that way you can decide what best suits your style.

The best marker not on the market would be a Planet Eclipse railgun capable of accelerating a paintball 7,875 fps and it would make it's debut on Future Weapons: Paintball Edition, hahaha.

Unfortunately the paintball would not be capable of that flight, it would explode the second it left the barrel.

I've actually played with it a couple times. Once out in Pennsylvania at Castle Conquest at EMR and once at Living Legends 3 at CPX in Joliet, IL.
