    I have an Angel A1 Fly (Rasta) which I purchased quite a few years ago.

    I've not used it since an ankle injury back in 2010; at the time I sent the marker to WDP to be serviced and it's not been used since. There are a few upgrades and customisations to it, but without going through paperwork I wouldn't be able to say what those were.

    Anyhow, I'm now looking to get back into paintball, but I'm not sure how things have changed over the past few years and how the A1 Fly stacks up against some of the more modern markers. I'd appreciate your thoughts on whether I'd be best to pick up where I left off with the A1 Fly or if I'd be better advised to look into some of the current options.

    Thanks!

    A1's can be brought back to life as long as you have the right contacts. ive spent a good few years finding all the hoarders as i am one myself. still plenty of parts out there.

    Angels are great man, my main concern would be the spare parts whenever something needs to be replaced.... Could be hard to find, but as mentioned below... If you have the right contacts it should't be a problem...

    Would like to see some pics of that rasta :)
