Question tippmann and speedball?

Are tippmans really that bad in speedball. after reading many reviews, many people say that this is not the right marker for speedball. i have many friends who use their tippmanns for tourneys and they say it is no problem. Any tippmannn speedballers out there?

P.S. I heard that using a RT is illegal in tourneys. my friend says he uses his custom pro with RT but has to adjust it to certain limitations.

Some tournys will let you use a RT, but most just totally ban the use of them. The only thing about tippmanns and speedball is that, they are longer making it harder to stay tight. Also those tournys probably aren't anything big anyways.

yea, tippmanns arent as bad as speedball as ever1 say they r. They r jus a lil long like slaminator said. No they wont compare to ions, but tippmann r tippmanns. Its not really the gun, its the player that uses the gun (except if the gun is like a $20 gun)

tippmanns are not good for speed ball because of the amount of kick they have,how long they are like sayed above,and the facts that they are slow and in SPEED ball SPEED is very important.

SPEED aint everything. Look if u learn to use ur tippmann well, it can b very effective. Jus u have to play w/ ur tippmann for a lil bit to learn how the gun works. Like i said b4, tippmanns have their own unique performance skills of their own. For example, customizable for ne scenario, egrip ebolt mod to make it a sensitouch trigger for SPEED as fast as ions. All u have to do is learn wat ur gun is about nd wat ups to make it good enough to compete at the scenarios u play in.

Speed isn't a factor in Tippmanns. A properly upped Tippy can rip with the best of them. In fact, my A-5 is much easier to walk than my Ion at the moment. Also, the A-5/CP is only about inch or two longer than comparable "speedball" guns, and actually shorter which is a plus. It's really just a mental woodsball-gun "badge" that has been stamped on Tippys, and that somehow that logic means that it can't do well in speedball formats.

hm sry here is the stats I have from my last 98c

-less kick than a proto
-I could rap a back bunker better than anyone else, go buy a shocker if u want to loose 4".
-15bps psp ramp with no chops is fast, my custom pro will go faster my my fingers can't keep up.

Sry

Yes but not everyone has a tippmann like yours. I will agree that speed is not important, look at the awesome pump players.

They can mix well if the player puts the right ingredients in the bowl. Tippmanns arent made for speedball, everybody knos that, but that is y there r ups for the guns.

exactly ...tippmanns are over priced for the amount of performance you get and upgrades are so expensive that by the time you get them running decent you have already spent 300

how can you say speed isn't important? especially if your playing with people who have more of a speedball gun. yes people do play pumps on speedball fields but everyone is using a pump...same performance.

OK here is what I'm basically trying to say you go onto a speedball field with a tippmann your going to get outgunned unless you spend a very large amount of money...

IMO, Tippmann's are kinda like a Swiss Army Knife... They may not have the sharpest blade out there (and may not always be the perfect tool for the job), but they can work with anything, not to mention they're eff'in indestructable.

Theres lots of markers that are 'better' for speedball, but its hard to go wrong with a Tippmann... especially if this is your first marker.

sry but that is a perfect example of a jealous noob coment. I can shoot 16-17bps on a custom pro is turbo mode or what ever the semi ramp mode is. That is faster than anyone can shoot with thier fingers so why does it matter.... Sure you can buy a Dm6 or a Timmy and shoot in the low twenties while ramping but it won't help you on the field.

someone mentioned pump...... *Signals for sengy*
dude please keep note, speed is partly in sppedball. But like several have said, it's the player that makes it. Heck, i use my phantom 9/10 times, and i live to see the end of the game. And also, it's not always true that pumpers play against pumper, cuz i know that's not true with me.....

are you kidding? I can pull 18-20 pulls a second with my fingers and don't need any egrip or that crap...it takes practice but it's easily attainable...seriously think before you type
