In the search of THE ONE

I'm new to the paintball scene although I've played alot when i was younger. Me and a couple of guys from my squad are getting together when we return from Iraq and are starting a team. The thing is, I am very indecisive as to which marker i want to buy. I want a good marker for a good price. I have heard alot about dangerous power and the G3 and F8. I just want to know how these markers compare to, lets say a Bob long protoge, a proto SLG or rail, or even a shocker NXT. Can anyone give me some advice as to which between these markers would be the best to buy.

Hey thanks for the responce. My price range is anywhere from $300-600.

I was actually lookin at a mini invert as well but was unsure as to how it held up against the other high end markers. I see that you have one. Whats been your experience and opinion on how it plays?

i"ve actually owned an invert mini, its pretty decent, but as compared to my 07 Hybrid fusion, i prefer the fusion by far, its way more efficient and a lot more accurate, and i got it for exactly 200 bucks. its not much different than the F8, but poppet valve markers will always be better in accuracy and efficiency, the invert mini is pretty good as compared to other high ends though, so any of these markers are amazing for your price range

It's a hard comparison between the Fusion and G3 for me.

The G3 is newer, smaller, lighter, shoots fantastic, and did I mention small? The Fusion is a fantastic marker too, shoots great, light, and looks good. But for me, the only thing I didn't like about the G3 is that it was so small. The same is true with the Invert Mini. I am a pretty decently sized guy with decently sized hands, so they just don't fit that well in my hands. Whereas the Fusion and F8 fit much better.

So the G3 shoots better in my oppinion, but I like the way the Fusion feels in my hands better.

So my suggestion would be to go to a shop, or to a field, and ask if you can shoot all of those markers if possibe, that will make it alot easier deciding.

yeah, psycho's right, the g3 is lighter and it shoots pretty nice ( with him on the big hands part too lol), but with a spool valve you got so much more o-rings and a ton more maintenance, a little biased but i've never had as much problems with a poppet as i have a spoolie (sometimes a pain to troubleshoot also) but if you can get a chance to shoot them all go for it!


RIGHT NOW EBAY HAS A TON OF WICKED DEALS ON DANGEROUS POWER MARKERS!!!!

Of all the markers you're looking at, I would go with anything made by DP.

Compared to Bob Long:

-DP has better customer service by a long shot.
-DP markers are cheaper, and close performance wise.

-I've shot an old Bob Long Timmy, it was pretty sweet, but for the whoping $1400 they were charging, I wasn't sure. Comparing an '05 Timmy to a DP Fusion F8, they're pretty close.

-DP markers come ready-to-play. They aren't many upgrades for them for one reason: they don't need 'em.

Unfortunately, I can't say much about the Mini. Never shot one.
