Paintball Markers Manufacturers from all over the world battle for the title of the best marketer year after year. The big players in the business are DYE , PLANET ECLIPSE , EMPIRE , SMARTPARTS to name a few. All offer entry-level models as well as high-end products for paintball sports. But which paintball gun is actually the best? We have looked at this question and have put together some basic data for you.
THE SMART PARTS SHOCKER RSX – THE ULTIMATE LIGHTWEIGHT
No other paintball marker in the tournament area is currently as light as the Shocker RSX . Smart Parts has significantly reduced the previous limit for the weight of a high-end paintball marker of approximately 800 – 900 g and s (c) squats the market with revolutionary 771g.
The Shocker RSX is not only an absolute lightweight, but also an absolute price bang. SmartParts has set the price well below 1000 euros, thus setting new standards in the under-1000 euro area. A few smears had to be but then, and thus the RSX unfortunately comes without LPR (low-pressure regulator) and the Boltsystem is not necessarily the most efficient. However, the Smart Parts Shocker certainly belongs to the best markers of recent years and has earned its place among the best high-end paintball markers.
THE DYE M2 – THE ALL-ROUNDER WITH THE BEST OVERALL PACKAGE.
The Dye M2 does not decorate the cover of our article for nothing. It is currently the measure of all things in the paintball tournament. Dye has been known for years to know what players want and react to. Performance and performance are a prerequisite for these markers. While Dye has often been dismissed as too heavy or unwieldy in the past few years, the M2 has made it one step ahead and offers ambitious players around the world the best overall concept on the market.
UPDATE: EXTENSIONS END 2017
The DYE M2 also received an update at the end of 2017. With the appearance of the DYE I5 paintball mask, the MOS-AIR-SYSTEM was also released by DYE. This system allows the player to connect their mask, marker and hopper to each other, and up-to-date information about the game is fed into the mask via the audio signal, thus reaching the player. Unfortunately still without Heads` UP DISPLAY, which will probably still need a time. All DYE M2 will be delivered with the MOS-AIR system from 2017 onward. An update for the 2017 M2 is, of course, also available. We are excited about what’s coming.
PLANET ECLIPSE – HERE YOU CAN FIND MORE MANUAL WORK
Planet Eclipse has stood for quality from the British Kingdom for years. The markers according to PE are all assembled in GB.
