Default Hobao Paintball?

i know there have been a few paintball threads, and all have failed. this one might make it a while longer though. i am a strong paintball enthusiast, and am always looking for a new toy lol. in my quest for uniqueness, i found [link=http://www.hobao-racing.com/bobo-paintball.php]this[/link]. it is a spool valve marker, similar in design to a dye, quest, or any other spool valve marker. i know their cars seem to be quality, but i hope the gun is as well. if i can find a way to buy one, i will buy it.

25BPS is nice too. I only play woodsball with friends so a longer barrel and im set. for $180 not a bad deal. Eyes are a must too

for the same price, may i recommend the [link=http://www.ansgear.com/Azodin_Blitz_Paintball_Gun_Black_p/azodinblitzblack.htm]Azodin Blitz[/link]. it is a blow-back poppet valve marker like the spyder, but more industry standard. it has autococker barrel threads, which is pretty much industry standard. an ion threaded clamping feedneck, so there is a million options, and a self lubricating delrin bolt. just drop some oil on the hammer every 2 months. it will do everything the spyder can, but better. it's like t-maxx vs lst. it works, but one is definitely better. plus, you can send your gun to the guys at azodin, and they will flash the board for FREE, and put any mode you want on there. there is nothing wrong w/ the spyder, but you can get more for the same price.

on the hobao gun, i have no idea about price. im going to call hobao directly, and see what i can find. and i believe hobao partnered w/ ofna, but isn't the same. i know hongnor is the same as ofna.

some of the best CS is bob long, dangerous power, and azodin. bob long services all his guns that were ever made, even the original intimidators.
