Ergonomics is a subject frequently overlooked in paintball but it needn't be so. A JAM Enterprises Associate has designed the new Endo Cradle to alleviate the fatigue and discomfort associated with many paintball marker setups. The Endo Cradle is designed to put a sizeable fraction of the marker's weight on the user's shoulder and move the tank out of the way of the trigger hand's wrist. The overall effect combines a markedly reduced gun-player profile with increased comfort resulting in a longer day of balling!
The CenterFlag Endo Cradle is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
reduces the heavy feel of a gun. Attention from other players.
Looks & feels cheaply made 4 the price
I saw a guy at a tourney that had this on his Ego. I asked him if I could hold it and he was happy to let me give it a try. Immediately I could see how much it reduced the feel of the heavyweight of the gun. He gave me the website & immediately after the tourney I went home and ordered the Endo drop. I got it in a few days latter and immediately put it on my Smart Parts Shocker and went to the local field to try it out.
I found the drop to reduce the weight & gave you a very sturdy and accurate aim, but it was hard to switch from left to right positions. The tank was constantly getting in the way and hitting my mask. After the day of play I took it off of my Shocker and sent it back to the company.
It is a good idea that hasn't become popular yet, mostly because of the weird fell of it and the tank getting in the way of your mask and head.
I would never recommend this drop for a front or mid player because it can get the tank in the way of fast moves and tight positions. Some back players may find it comfortable by reducing the gun weight and give them a sturdier shot. Most people would find their tank get in the way of their mask. But when it comes down to it, it is really a personal preference product.
