What piranha is right for me?

Many people have asked me about which piranha is right for them.

Piranhas come in three categories: Mechanical, E-force, and the Evo. There are many places that you can buy these guns, with the best prices being here The prices usually fall around the following for the following guns:


Black Maxx $40
E-force GTI $104
E-force EXT $145
Evo $230

Those are all good prices and you get what you pay for.

The best deal out of the four guns above is the EXT for $145. They give a nice balance of features for a great price. You might also want to look into used guns. A used, upgraded Evo runs at about $150. If you are willing to buy used just look around and youíll find lots of them. Piranhas are priced pretty well, though, so the Evo is pretty much the only gun that itís worth to buy used. The Evo has an advantage over the standard E-force guns because it can fire faster (different circuit board) and has anti-chop eyes.

If youíre just starting out, be sure to factor in the extra money that youíll need to spend on other playing gear like a mask, hopper, and tank. I would recommend getting nicer equipment (a non-crappy mask, an aluminum CO2 tank or HPA tank, nice hopper maybe) but what ever u can afford is ok. If youíre getting the Evo or any of the E-force models, I would strongly recommend an electronic loader such as the Empire Reloader or, if you have more money, an EvLution II (Egg) or Halo B. At this point don't worry about ups. You can get those latter after you shoot your marker and know what u want to improve on the marker.

All of these markers are awesome and are worth the money. Basically, you want to get the one that you can afford. They all work relatively well stock, so upgrades arenít immediately necessary for any of the guns. Youíll be set if you buy the gun and the necessary gear. Get upgrades later if/when you have more money Ė check out the Upgrade Sticky for information about that.

A Halo B for a fish? What are you smoking?!?! 22bps is just a tad bit fast for 13bps markers, and most 12bps hoppers (Mach 404, Revvy, etc.) on a fresh battery will feed fast enough! Besides, those hoppers you listed are force feed, and the stock detents on a pirhana don't stand a chance against them. I don't want to sound like a whiny little b****, but your hopper comments are completely and utterly wrong. Even on the evo, the detents get shredded from a halo or eggy.

It's not the expensive gear that wins a game, it's the team. Goggles should not be a major investment, as well as CO2 tanks. Aluminum tanks need to be hydro tested, which is a royal pain in the @$$. You don't need hoppers that feed fast enough for timmys, DM5's, and Angels on a pirhana. That's called stupidity, not an upgrade. A PIRHANA DOES NOT NEED A HOPPER THAT COSTS MORE THAN $40 FROM A REASONABLY PRICED DEALER. I've shot my eforce gti with a gravity feed hopper and not chopped on full auto for 8 seconds. Besides, with the stock settings, it's pretty annoying to maintain 13bps, and you don't need a ROF that high to eliminate a player.

First of all, Chillax.
Secondly,if you have decent detents in your gun, they won't be shredded i.e. hardened timmy detents. If your goggles are crap, they'll fog up and you'll shoot yourself in the testicles or the foot. If your Co2 is crap, it will explode and kill everybody; they don't even need to be hydroed that often, it's like once every eight years or something like that. I don't want to be rude, but check your facts before you go ranting and raving.

Why don't you go lurk in the Ion forums and tell some naive noobs to do that, because they're the only ones who will listen to a rude person like you.

Allright, my bad. Next time though, throw a "JK" or two in there so you don't get accidentally flamed.

Well there is a lot of truth to both sides....Halo B, deinitely overkill on a basic fish It will push past the detent like crazy. So generally I wuldn't recomend it....But if you have an EVO or aftermarket board, you can outrun a standard revy or reloader...If said gun had double, hardened detents a Halo B would be great. Keep in mind, you always want you loader to be FASTER than you gun because the other way around is called a blender.

Rocker...definitely throw at least a couple of dodgies in when you make a comment like that. I wasn't on when you wrote it or I probably would have flamed you too....probably worse for that matter. Those ION zombies are kind of pissing me off....Decent gun, but not the greatest thing on the planet...For the price I would rather have the Wrath than the ION

I chescked out the black one and it wasn't too bad, but yeah too many people have them. Bigger issue is that many seem to be on some holy crusade to convert all of us who don't have it. If I had a dollar for every time "....just sell your gun and buy an ION." was a reply to a gun problem I could probably buy SP and discontinue that line.

Ima try out my friends Ion at the field tomorrow and let you guys know how it compares to my fish. Something tells me that there'll be no competition whatsoever.

Not so sure...They are good guns...Just not as great as their owners think they are.

Well he's an idiot why not just put in 50-75 dollars more and get a really sweet gun and not stupid Ion and I am seriously considering asking the mod to ban anyone from the thread if they Thump Ion bibles in PMI thread, because it's getting really old.

Would an Egg2 be ok on a Pirhana SRT?

It should be fine but you'll have to turn the speed down a bit just to make sure.

Thanks.....

Ok, I feel like getting on my soap box this morning, so here it goes....First, I have never put down ION's, I think they are decent guns and well worth the price...But for that matter so are fish (of course ), Wraths (better than IONs, imo), and Promasters (I really like those). None of these are bad, all are good buys. How many people have come in and say "just buy a Wrath" or "just buy a promaster"? Pretty close to NONE....and yet we get this influx of SP cult members spewing their "religion" or at least it seems like it anyway. I keep expecting to have my doorbell ring and see a guy outside my door in a white shirt and blue pants and tie (with SP logo on it) with an ION owners manual in his hand talking about the path to enlightenment and a guarantee into heaven ......I think its time I went to the SP forum and spread some hate and discontent

For anyone who didn't get it, that was a Jahoves Whitness analogy
