Talking Shot my first EP today

Well I went to a course today with some friends. Played my first woodsball game. That was pretty fun! There were some guys out there playing some speedball on another course. Met a cool guy who helps run the place and he let me shoot his $800 Indian Creek gun. I forget the model. All I can say is I am sold!

Still though, my gun had another kick ass day of shooting. Accurate and reliable! Tried HPA on my gun as well. Seemed to work pretty darn good. Although at first it was burping but for some reason it went away.

He was saying something about stack tubes. What is the difference? I am not sure I know what the difference is.

If you actually liked the freestyle you will love a real high end gun . not many people care for the freestyle anymore, personally they are not for me either, but i would suggest testing the high end market before jumping in face first, go to the shop try a few high end guns out and check them out compare them and then make a decision.

Ya I appreciate the advice. Still being a newb it might be awhile before I jump into an expensive marker. I loved the small taste of one that I got today though!

many high end guns have that feel.

I love my freestyle! Honestly I like the balance and feel of it better than most of the other guns I have fired. The only reason I'm selling mine is because my borg is so much more efficient and a bit lighter. Otherwise I like the feel of the FS better. The freestyle is a great marker. You can pick a used FS7 up for $400.00 which is a great price! They do have horrible resale though! Buy used!

i dont think anyone answered this. in a stacked tube the valve is below the bolt like in spyders and an air operated ram that also moves the bolt actuates it and air flows up, into a corner and out the bolt.

in a spool valve the bolt moves forward and when it reaches a certain spot in the cycle the air behind it is no longer sealed in and it flows forwards.

usually stacked tubes are taller with smaller tubes than spool valaves. the dm series is an exception to the taller thing because it has an lpr on the lower area, which is said to not be needed on smartparts designed spool valve markers.
