Okay.........are we asking for the best player of all time, or the most successful?

Obviously if it's the best then opinions will vary, if it's the most successfull then I think Robbo gets me vote.

I see your point

Yes Sid I agree with you there Pete Robinson has been involved with many teams over his prestigous years and was succesful with most, especially with Aftershock and would get my vote based on wins in US and World

However being what we are and what this post is about I am truly interested in other peoples opinions on what this should be based on and there reasons, Shelley has given some insite and reasons for her votes and I also agree with her as well

Bart being a great example, Bart Stud Squad, Preds and Eagles

most of the preds, Marcus Davis,

Phil Ham with AAS and other teams

Some of the Turks perhaps

Darren Braybrook, Short Timers? And as stated earlier on, Keith Williams, definite class player.

You list is extensive and quite agreeable for me, have you had the luck to see all of these players play over the years, I think you are one very lucky girl/lady
Thanks jewel, Yes I have seen all these players play in most of their teams. I never thought I was lucky but yes I am very grateful for the "elder" contacts I have - much love to them all.

So the list I gave is from what I have seen regards to ability and success in name. I believe Ledz and Matty are the only full time pros now. Giles and Twizzel guest and coach, Robbo coaches. The rest have retired I believe.

So anyone else of yester year Or today who knows their paintball UK history have any thoughts on The All Time UK Paintballer?...

My god, you must be old, even that pushes my memory bank Darren Braybrook Short Timers

I played against them in my early days at a site nr Sittingbourne

Sh*t

Unfortunately BBS he would not get into my top 25, but I think if you added some reasons I may agree, they would have to be good though
