Default Rain, Rain, Go away

So I was reading in my manual that my 09 pilot shouldn't be able to take any water. But I've seen some videos of pros using e-markers sliding into giant puddles and still keep throwing paint.

So how much water is ok? How much is not? If I'm playing woodsball and it starts to rain hard should I panic?

a little water shouldn't affect it too much but i would avoid getting it wet, if possible

or you could just go ahead and seal up the e-frame with tape or something...
i think that as long as the board and battery and that stuff stays dry you will be fine...i think...

for the most part, i wouldn't worry bout it to much

I've played with an 05 Electra in rain/snow. I just kept it as dry as i could and it worked fine.

you also have to keep in mind, that some pros dont actually have to buy their own markers, so sliding into a mud puddle and ruining a marker isnt their number 1 priority. its winning
