We have finally got our hands on one of Planet Eclipse’s most anticipated markers (and one of our most anticipated markers this year), the Etek 5! If you’re on the fence about upgrading to an electronic marker, now is the time to get in on the next big thing. But enough being vague about it; let’s get into the real meat of this marker.
For those of you who like to play paintball without a giant tank of HPA or CO2 on the back end of your marker or simply want to use a giant tank like the Guerilla Air 100 Ci model, you’ve probably considered a remote line. If you haven’t, then what are you waiting for turkey?!? It’s time to get one, and the remote line worthy of your consideration is definitely the Ninja Paintball’s Microbore Straight Remote Line. Find out everything you need to know about this miracle remote line after the jump!
Let’s be honest: anyone who plays mag-fed wants to look legit. You want to look like a total BA, and you want to look as intimidating as possible. Maybe you want to be stealthy as a ninja, sneaking in the shadows and eliminating your opponents, or perhaps you want to be a John McLane-esque player: walking up to your opponents, softly saying one of your all-American catchphrases, and lighting them up like a Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center.
That last approach probably isn’t the most strategic by the way.
Whatever method you choose, if you want to look and feel like an assassin for hire, know that you need one accessory: the Milsig Mock Silencer.
If you want to keep your opponents in the dark and practically eliminate their field of vision, there’s only one answer: smoke grenades.
Better yet, you need Enola Gaye Smoke Grenades.
If you want eye-catching, tough pieces for your paintball marker, look no further than the DYE GF BoomStick Barrel gents (and gals). A solid barrel made from glass fibre (hence the GF in the title) means that not only is this barrel high-performance and threaded for an autococker marker, but has a handsome color that’s sure to get attention on and off the paintball field. If you’re interested in performance, the stainless steel insert in your barrel is going to stay nice and smooth; with the Boomstick barrel, you don’t have to sacrifice playing good for the sake of looking good.
You love your marker, and you want to use it in as many different scenario games and what have you whenever possible. Furthermore, you probably want to use different types of barrels for different types of play, but this can be a pain. Sometimes, the barrel you want isn’t the barrel that’s compatible with your marker. It sucks, but that’s life, fellas.
Fortunately, with the Stock Class Feedneck Adapter by your side, most of your compatibility problems can be solved.
We finish this year’ Hustle Holiday Gift Guide with a few random items that didn’t quite fit in our other guides, but we knew that your giftee would love them anyway! But enough banter – let’s cut straight to the chase!
Word of advice, friend: it’s time to stop playing with only sunglasses. Seriously. I know you’re protecting your eyes (but you’re really not), but you’re not protecting your mouth or other vital areas of your head. What happens when you yawn on the field and a paintball pops you right in those pearly whites? Yep, you’re going to be going to the dentist and will have to explain to Dr. NotAmused that you were playing without a mask again.
Don’t give Dr. NotAmused ammunition to insult you: buy a mask this holiday season, and play the game we love safely. And if you have a loved one that doesn’t have a mask but is dying to get out on the field? Again, save them from Dr. NotAmused’s nasty insults (“your teeth used to look like chewed-on Chiclets. Now they look even more embarrassing.” Ouch!) and get them a mask that will provide them with suitable protection.
All the firepower in the world doesn’t matter if your marker can’t hit what you’re aiming at. Having the right barrel changes that (as long as you know how to aim, that is). Not only that, but the right barrel can improve the rate of fire of your marker considerably – but not all barrels are created equal. Whatever type of barrel your marker needs, we at Hustle Paintball think we have the answer for all of you this holiday season. For beginner players to the most seasoned veterans, the 10 barrels below are sure to tickle your fancy!*
Never underestimate the difference a good hopper can make in how well you play. Unfortunately, finding a good hopper can be a bit time consuming. Should you by this automatic hopper? Will you be perfectly fine with a traditional hopper? What about if you just want to play magfed? Did I pay my electric bill?
Enough questions – we have the answers! Some of the best hoppers we have to offer for any type of paintball player is here after the jump. For the budget conscious to the players that don’t mind spending their children’s college fund on a hot new hopper, we’re ready to help!
