Once again, I am not the target audience of tournament paintball, but...
AGD and her allies need to actively lobby the organization to clarify and grant an audience. This could be a huge revival in semi play. I am sure this is being done.
On the flip side, the organization should have reached out to effected parties for standards/rules input. This was an utter fail on their part.

I don't see anything on the Facebook post or on their website about banning Mags. I did see this:
"Series Champs Will Win New Mechanical Markers!"
If AGD wants Mags in the tourney, offering some up as prizes is probably the best way to grease the skids.
Donating a marker as a prize should help make sure mags are included.
I'm willing to Paypal a little $ to help the cause if Tim wants to go that route.
Anyone else care ?

Sent out another email to NXL...We'll see if they respond.
I guess I'll address the thread topic.....aluminum automag valves.....We already make one. It's called the X-valve.
Making a classic valve would cost the same to make. A few parts are cheaper, like the reg pin. but for the most part it's the same cost.
If we can't make a classic valve for significantly cheaper, then there really is no point in making it.
AGD is in the house!
Custom gun builds. All the parts. New Website. Factory Service available!
Simon seems to be spearheading this for the NFL.
Maybe talk to him.
I'm sure Scott has his number, call him.
I agree with almost all of the above. The mag and cocker are the most iconic. Don't think either is more so than the other. Also. My classic rt 100% stock other than Iframe with a normal 800-850psi tank still has bounce due to the 0.744 pin that originated in it. Very controllable and would only fire 10-12 bps at best. But it's still bounce.
Woods, there is too much walking. Give me short and sweet, no branches deflecting my shots.
Woods??? Only when forced. Back in the day when airball first started I lived in it. Now a few decades later all I play is scenario. But now I live in the villages or other tight quarter areas with bunkers and minimal sticks and brush. I like the aspect of speedball vs the aspect of sniper. Guess I just get bored way to easy.
Nothing is worse than having an otherwise clean shot with that one branch vacuuming up all your paint.
