I'm thinking NXT. Good reviews so far, and pretty good gun for the price.

While I like the NXT, I'm gonna have to say you should get another Timmy. It's what your primary is, so why would you want something that's going to shoot and feel different, and require different (and sometimes majory different) care, from your primary? Especially if it breaks down between games in a tournament and you won't have the time to become acclimated to the new gun?

In my mind, you don't get a backup to show off something cool and it's an "excuse" to get the latest, greatest thing, you get a backup because your primary broke down and you need something that will smoothly fill in the blanks. If you have two "primary" guns, one isn't EVER going to get used, and that's a waste of a good gun.

IF you were buying one of these to become your new primary, and keep your Timmy as a backup (you're already accustomed to it, so it wouldn't take much to use in a pinch,) I'd feel a bit differently about this, but since you're only getting one to fill a spot in your gear bag, Timmy all the way.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

Just my thoughts on the matter.
I agree whole heartedly with what you said. My backup will definately see use though. I will probably alternate using it on practice days, just to get used to it. There is a chance that what I buy could become my primary, but its unlikely because I love my Timmy.The one thing about gun whores, is we get tired of the same gun, which is why I'd lead to something different, because it will give me variety. If I get bored of the Timmy, I break out the backup for a few days and then go back to the Timmy. I'll equate it to food. I eat KFC almost every day for lunch. I love their chicken strips meal because its 3 strips and 2 sides for under $5, and fills me up, but sometimes I gotta mix it up for a few days because I get tired of eating it.

I'm really leaning towards a Shocker SFT because I get probably get a decked out one for under $500 and who cares about looks because its my backup. They are pretty simple too. 3 things to worry about: lube, dwell and HPR pressure. Other than that there's nothing to worry about. We'll see what happens when I sell my car though. I appreciate everyone's opinions though, because it makes me think about things I overlook.
