I'd go with the Pilot because its electronic and more versatile out of the box than the MR1. Especially if you decide to play speedball because mechanical markers, like the MR1, aren't known for speed.

since you say you'll be playing speedball, get the pilot. if you wanna keep playing woodsball, and possibly scenario games, go for the mr1. you can upgrade with an esp frame or something later.

or shoot em both and see which one you like.

ahh, you beat me to it lol

Personal preference really... With the rocker, most people either love it or hate it. See if you can shoot one before you decide to buy it.

Well there really isnt any point in buying a gun without the E frame if you are going to get an E frame right after you buy it anyway. Im saying go with the pilot.

I really like my rocking frame.

Get the Pilot ACS. I use it for woodsball and speedball.

If you get the Pilot, your first two upgrades should be, a HPA tank and Dye Sticky 3 grips.

I wouldn't get a rocking trigger because some fields don't alow them.
