If u chop a ball
I play woodsball mostly and moved out here to california. I noticed there are only a few woodsball feilds the rest are speedball. I couldnt make up my mind on which speedball marker i wanted to upgrade to and i had my eye on this for a long, long time. So i ordered it and waited for it to come. About a week later i got to take it out....
My first impressions and the pros-
The marker comes neatly packaged in an awesome strong, solid carrying case. Everything is in two stages of foam. I took it out and in pistol form it has a solid feel. Though the grip is a little large it wasnt terrible in the least. I attached everything and interchanged between all of the set ups i could think of there was about ten roughly. I read through the basic operations of the manual which is really easy to follow. Then i took it outside and test fired it.
I did not know what the chrono speed is but it shot straight and true. i was using twelve grams at the time, because my remote line was broken, and they only get about forty shots before i had to replace. However, i had to wait about two weeks before i could use it in a game ( thats at the end).
When you attach all of the accessories the weight hits you. Its not an unbearable weight, but for a scenario or really long game you might want to get a sling. The marker itself is actually more quiet than my tippmann, noticeably, but not the quietest out there. Again the grip is a little large but it houses eight paintballs in front of a 12 gram or the remote line adapter. But other than that it is comfortable and better held with both hands. Also the hopper attachment point is "adjustable", aka able to be tightened, but mine is really loose all the way so a clamp or miner trimming up will do the trick.
And now the game play-
I show up to ventures games park in california which is on the side of mount diablo and thus either up hill or downhill battles in the woods. Everyone was checking out my T9 and asking questions. I also noticed a couple people had that "ohhhh!" nervous look that they tried to cover up (u experienced players know what im talking about). There were the occasional stuck ups that blew off my gun especially with the tiny hopper attached. They were shocked when i eliminated one of them early on. Well at the chrono it was factory set at 256 fps and so i increased it a little bit to 268-271 fps. I didnt get a chance to shoot strings but thats okay.
The marker performed wonderful against many different people. I put about six hundred rounds of old Karnage paint and then it happened... ONE SINGLE ball chopped and paint was plastered in the barrel and barrel extension. If the barrels are not spotless they through crazy spins on the ball and that extremely reduces accuracy, distance, and overall performance. i cleaned it as much as i could and it was almost as good but it needs a very detailed cleaning. I also used it as pistol form but was eliminated early in that round so i cant really say anything about it like that. THIS is the top marker i ever used.
If you are willing to pay the price you get your money's worth. This is by far the best marker i ever used with extreme custimizing to your liking. I absolutely love this gun and will recommend it to anyone. You cant go wrong with it. I cant wait to use it again and will often do so.
T9 with bipod, handguard, scope, laser/flashlight, adjustable stock, and 12 gram co2
A combination laser/ flashlight. It will make life a whole lot easier and reduce the number of items sticking out of the marker.
Good bang for the buck
Extra magazines are kind of expensive.
I purchased the marker recently and to be absolutely honest I find it to be one of the best all around paintball guns that I have ever used. The process to turn the marker into a rifle and then back to a pistol is extremely easy and painless. All of the parts are solid and appear to be made of some of the best materials which in my opinion make it well worth the money. The only thing I wish is that it came with another magazine.
As a pistol, I experienced excellent accuracy. I fired the maker at three targets at different distances. One being roughly ten feet away, another being twenty-five feet away, and the last one being forty feet away. With all targets the pistol had a very small spread. The interesting thing was that I initially tested the marker with very old paint that was dimpled and it still was pretty accurate. Not one ball chopped despite my attempts to bring the marker to the point of chopping.
As a Rifle, I experienced a substantially higher level of accuracy. With everything on the marker and a fairly zeroed scope, the spread was a lot smaller. I experienced no chopping with the "bad" paint and the level of accuracy with the bad paint was still really good. It is important to take into consideration that accuracy comes from a combination of stability (stock and bipod), efficient use of air (the marker itself), and a good guide (barrel). All of these items in the right proportions make for a really good gun and the Tiberius Arms T9 Elite St has all of those features in the right proportions.
On the Field:
On the field the marker's accuracy and reliability really depend upon the weather. I noticed this immediately when a sudden drop in temperature caused the marker to spin balls in odd trajectories. The efficiency of the gun dropped substantially as well when the temperature dropped. In the morning (60 degrees) the marker was shooting around 25 balls a 12 gram cartridge after the temperature drop (55 degrees) the marker was shooting around 19 balls a cartridge. All in all the marker was pretty efficient in all the other fields. At first glance most people found that the marker looked very inefficient. However, during the games I not only used substantially less paint each round, I was substantially more accurate than everyone else who was for the most part using nitro/air.
In conclusion, the marker is made for the purpose. For those who want accuracy and do not need to be firing ten balls a second. You could be in the middle of battle and still be efficient because at the end of the day it is quality (accuracy) not quantity that counts in a game. I highly recommend this marker to anyone.
When i saw this gun, i was like dam this is sweet. I bought it when it first came out. When i first recieved the gun, i tested. Wow, the gun is strong, but the down side to it was the accuracy. When testing it, the balls tend to curve. To be honost the gun is waste of money, and upsetting. I had trouble cleaning it, its complicating when pulling the gun apart. Its better to use air then co2 because it makes a big mess in the gun. Having all those upgrades its pointless. Scope, lol come on why have a scope on a marker.
I dont recomend this product. Tippman A-5 and the 98 are great guns.
