Question question

hey guys does the paintball brand really matter? because ive seen brands selling 2000 balls for 80$ or 60$. and ZAP or SPANK is like 30$ or 40$ whats the differnce? i mean to me it's as long if it shoots out then thats good enough. right? what am i missing here?

you're missing out on the quality of the shell (how reliable are the breaks and how brittle are they) and the quality of the fill (ever heard of no wipe fills?).

buy some blue streaks at your local walmart and then compare them to some zap tork or diablo blaze/midnight, you'll see a huge difference.

3a

toolbandfan lemme spell it out for you, you obviously aren't reading the posts in their entirety, in just about every positive account of 3a stuff the author describes what he/she had to do to correct problems with the item they purchased from them.
Do you not see a problem with this, as far as my owning
3a stuff, yes I do own their 10 pc barrel set and have compared it to many others and it's the first last and only item of theirs I'll ever own, now as far as how many different products I own of theirs thats limited to just the barrel set and the reason for that is simply this if their top of the line barrel set is made that poorly to where I or anyone else have to grind and polish and and do the fit and finish work that should have already been done when it left their hands
do I really want more of their stuff?, now I don't know about anybody else but when I spend my money I want to be able to take it out of the box and use it not spend half a day fixing it, and I'm certainly not numb enough to buy more of it.
Think about it " this barrel set shoots as good as my boomstick but I had to grind burrs off the porting and the ano sucks but it's as good as any other barrel" and on and on, to me that whole statement is an oxymoron.
If you are going to make a counterpoint make it factual not argumentive.
As far as getting shot with 3a stuff

dude you fell and hit your head on something solid cuz that statement is just dense, but I'll tell ya what seeing as how you like the 3a stuff so well I'll sell ya the 10pc set I have
and give ya a screaming deal on it, I can't even give it away around here

3a

LMAO yeah me too, when it comes to 3a I'm their enemy #1
I hate the idea of anyone else getting burned by them

Who cares what their ebay rating is? They deal with themselves and different screennames (which is why ebay is currantly watching them...again) Look folks I don't understand the problem here. They lie to their customers. This is a fact. They boost their own ratings by creating multiple accounts and doing their own reviews. Also a fact. If you want to give your money to a company like that, your problem. As for me... you can't tell me the truth, I can't give you my money. I don't care if God himself made the product and it's the absolute best thing to hit the world of paintball. You lie, your done. No questions. I work to hard for my money to give it to some a-hole that's going to do nothing but lie to me and give me junk and half-arse done orders.

Just got back from D-Day 04 and all of my gear held up to a damn intense couple of days of use.

The 3A gear I used worked perfectly. My 72/4500 tank, my 5+4 pack and my 3A tank cover.

Again...it must suck to be you guys because my 3A gear works great.

omg give this thread a rest. if your gear works fine, then good for you. what the ppl here were trying to do was to give newcomers a warning. if they choose to buy 3A stuff, then that's their choice. it's the same thing as saying don't buy PMI HPA tanks cuz they have bad customer service and quality control.

No need to be snappy, but it's true. The argument is over nothing, some people hate 3A, some are loyal to them. It's just like an argument about Bush, everyone has their own opinion, everyone wants everyone else to hear it, but nobody will give in.

Very nicely put and I agree. Many of us have had bad luck with 3A, some haven't. You can't dispute their past very questionable actions. That's why I won't buy from them. That's my choice and I stand by it. Then there are those like Firemoth who supports them and have had great luck with them. His choice and I'm sure he stands by it. As he should.
If you buy from them and get good gear, I'm very happy for you and I honestly hope it serves you well. The point of this thread wasn't to bash, but to inform newer players of a possible bad company to deal with and to use caution.
I also agree that we all have said our piece on this topic and the thread has out lived it's usefulness.

At long last....CLOSED.

FYI. PBR's original stance on the company still stands. (stated on the very 1st post) All other 3A threads will still be closed without notice. This thread will stay in the stickies for reference.
