Default I need a backup...

Yeah, so that pretty much sums it up. I'm selling my car, and when that sells I'm gonna buy a backup marker. I love my Timmy, but if anything goes wrong, I need something I can pick up and shoot people with. I didn't need this when I wasn't playing tourneys, but now I do. I'd really like to buy something new, but might have to go with used because of my fundage. I'll make ~$900 on my car, so thats what I have to play with. Anyone who knows me knows I know my stuff when it comes to markers, I just dunno which one I want to buy. I've always had success with pin valve markers, but I'm really interested in a few spools. I'm also not sure what position I'll be playing next season. I've always been a front/mid, but I may end up switching to back. I'll be playing 7-man, so running out of air is not an option. If I stick to playing front, I know I'm safe with whatever choice. Anyways, just look at the options, pick one and give me a reasoning.

Get a blemmed DM6...

Dye has them but you need to get a store to get one for you.

And you get a good deal on them. Most of the time it is just the anno that is off.

Try an Ego or an NXT. Something you haven't owned.

Default Re: I need a backup...

I'll let you guys know how I feel on these.

Alias/Gen4 Timmys - I've got a Gen4 right now, so I'd probably lean more towards something different, even though I love my Gen4. Alias...I've had a few, probably would get something else. They are awesome though, so I know it'd be a good cheap backup.

Quest - Haven't played with one yet, friend has one so I might see how it is next week. Heard good things, so I'm interested. Resale value might not be great, and we know how I am with guns.

DM6/PM7 - Haven't owned a DM6, although I had a SM5 w/ UL which is the same as a DM6 except for the different milling and the DM6 has a better LPR. Wasn't happy with the efficiency, but they shoot so smooth. PM7 is probably gonna be $1000 new and I can't afford that...

Shocker SFT/NXT - NXT's look like they'll be great, so I'm really high on those. SFT would give me a good cheap backup that I am familiar with.

Ego/Etek - Never really got to play much with my Ego. I know they are solid performers and are something I'm used to. Only thing I don't like is its a "Me too" gun. "You've got an Ego? Me too" I like my Timmy because I'm the only one at the field with a Gen4. Etek's are rare here, and I'm intrigued by them. Not my top choice, but higher than most.

Well since you are looking for a back up, I see no point getting a Ego or something that expensive.

For the price I think the new Shocker NXT would be an awesome choice. That or maybe a PM6. With the PM7 coming out soon an up'd PM6 is probably going to drop a little in price so you could pick up a nice one for cheap.

you can probably get a PM6 on the nation used for like 500 when the PM7 out.
maybe less.

or you can just buy my dm4..

I don't think the PM6's will be 1000 dollars new for long. The 925 price of PM6's only lasted about a month and then it dropped down to 625 brand new.

I voted for the shocker nxt for the same reason. Why spend alot of money on a backup if you maybe wont use it as much. I would look for something used.
