    Different paint opinions

    Anyone can get sponsored, but the definition of ‘sponsored’ isn’t necessarily what it’s generally thought to be * For paint, Bolter has given the best advice which is to ask traders (+ other players) and try some test balls. Of course do bear in mind that everyone has they own opinions on what...

    Guerrilla Air Tank help

    Manufactured feb 2010 Cannot be used after feb 2025 To use it now you need a hydro test. If there are no test stickers then it is out of date but suitable for a retest. If you get it retested now then the test would be valid until the final expiry end of Feb 2025 (You would get 3 years of...

    ISO Some Paintballs!

    Most likely scenario is it all works Failure from bad paint would pretty much be a barrel burst and worst case scenario would be in the chamber needing a deep clean Unless balls are damp and swolen meaning they won’t load at all

    Buying from america 2nd hand??

    This is difficult one and will always be personal judgement and how valuable that item is to you - the risk and reward of buying that special thing from far away 1) Goods and services on PayPal gives you payment protection, but only as long as everything fits the rules. Paintball guns have...

    Looking for a place to play???

    Probably worth giving them a ring to check. On their Facebook the latest update was in June, and is showing as ‘unavailable’ to me. Either their social media is very inactive or it may have not fully survived the Covid era

    Trying to ressurect an old tippman 98...

    A common cause for the fart & a form of full auto is the trigger sear. When the air pressure has dropped too low the bolt/hammer doesn’t cycle fully and therefore fails to engage on the sear which results in burping and auto cycling. This can also occur due to wear stopping the sear from...

    Email Verification

    I’m not sure on the average timing, but in theory it should be almost instantaneous I am aware that Gmail often has problems with emails from forum software and potentially holds them back or blocks them as spam (without getting as far as the recipients spam folder)

    Getting into the paintball business

    Spring power is a no go. That only allows for the Splatmaster 0.50” spring action type, and you would only be able to run the child’s party groups which are typically on a fixed price for parents to budget a party Check out the series of videos by Martello of Paintball magazine / On Target...

    Newcastle - Retired player seeks advice on return to the sport with his now 16 year old son.

    I’ve stealth modded Newcastle into the title to give a hint to anyone with more local knowledge Walkons either have a strong following or fizzle out depending on locality & the crowd Any gear you already have will still be up to the job, except for expired bottles and what level of...

    Good Old Sites & Where Did You Start Playing?

    Collective opinions on which mask and why

    Correct …. Though I do still own all of mine and used to replace the full set of lenses every year as spares/loans until it got a bit ridiculous (correction - I’m missing one set, which I think disappeared one day with the guy I loaned it to put it down & it probably got gathered by the site...

    Collective opinions on which mask and why

    Note that strictly speaking every set of goggles has replaceable foam. I have replaced the foam in a couple of sets of goggles using the currently available alternate foam set It’s not so great a feature - nice to have rather than it being impossible to do, but after a few years in you often...

    Nice stuff I don’t like all the yoof graphics, I like your main piece of advice - talk to people and ask questions. That’s the best advice that’s out there. You also have the 2nd best advice about taking care of your body - hydration, pads, knee supports etc, and you think that you’re an old...

    Air bottle size.

    In speedball you will be playing short games and should be able to refill air between them, therefore the smaller capacity of a stubby should not be a ‘disadvantage’ The real thing to consider is the ergonomics and balance as to what is right

    New to paintball, needing advice/guidance on what gear to get.

    ….. just as an addendum, my old post below compared some cylinder sizes & weights My two 48ci cylinders were 1600g for the aluminium and 1000g for the fibre A ‘normal’ 4800 would be sized at about 68ci, but I had a bigger 91ci at 1700g A 68ci fibre would probably be slightly lighter than the...

    New to paintball, needing advice/guidance on what gear to get.

    Other than that a 48ci fibre will achieve a weight saving, I wouldn’t like to recommend something I have big arms and hands, so my 48 is shorter than optimum for me, but I can comfortably use it when that’s the one I chose to use* * I can’t currently use it as I allowed it to expire and have...
