    Why dont any good pro teams use them?

    This was said to me by my best friend about 5 minutes ago, heres the coversation.

    FrEeK133: dude,
    Freek Pballer: ?
    FrEeK133: check out how clean this gun looks
    FrEeK133: minus the sock on the tank
    FrEeK133: pballa's mag
    Freek Pballer: thats nice lookin
    FrEeK133: Is that a powdercoating on his body?
    Freek Pballer: This i cannot tell you
    FrEeK133: why not?
    Freek Pballer: b/c i do not know
    Freek Pballer: although i think powdercoating looks more matte
    FrEeK133: yeah, thats what I was thinking myself
    FrEeK133: I think warp bodys on mags look good
    FrEeK133: I'd like to have a black teflon warp body on my mini
    FrEeK133: but in aint gonna do that
    Freek Pballer: B/c u know warp sux?
    FrEeK133: no, because I want to spend my money on an e mag conversion
    Freek Pballer: and warp sux
    FrEeK133: I dont know why your dissing it
    Freek Pballer: b/c it sux?
    FrEeK133: I think its cool
    Freek Pballer: Its a cool idea
    Freek Pballer: but tell me this
    FrEeK133: I think its an effective way to get paintballs into the gun for bursts and all that good stuff
    Freek Pballer: why dont any good pro teams use em?
    FrEeK133: probably because they are paid to play with something else

    I am of course freek133, I just wanted to share this with you, It cut me real deep. "why dont any good pro teams use em" ... it cut me real deep.

    I had to rant for a second thanks for taking the time to read.

    I don't think many tourneys allow forced feed.At least not around here. 'course,the Halo is pretty much force feed.

    Warp is/is not forced feed. It is but it is legal because the warp needs a hopper on it, which is fed by gravity.

    Warpfeeds are used by some pro players, like Bob Long (which is for me a good reference, to say the least ).
    He uses it on his 2002 Timmy, with a warpfeed and a halo B.
    His rate of fire is, humm..., let's say high .

    I don't think the warpfeed is an answer to all the problems, but it gives a nice advantage in some cases, if you know how to use it.

    Most pros don't use them only because they are embarassed to be different from the crowd. I can tell you positively they all hate playing against them because they say so.

    yeah..there's a shot in a Traumahead Sportz video from I think the Mardi Gras Open where the camera is right over Bob's shoulder and all you see is just a straight line of paint comin out of his Timmy..it's awesome...

    and as far as pros...We've got Manny from Aftershock (RiceRocket here on AO) who shoots an SFL and a Retro Mag (and boy does he run like a cheetah)...and Kenny Klamper also from Aftershock has a mag as his backup gun. There's also a guy from Am Team Static (or was it Exile) who shoots an eMag.


    and how could you guys forget Robbo...that guy has been a Mag guy from way back...that guy is the man...

    Damn right! woulda been nice to kit out the new Xball team with C&C's that'd been some nice publicity although I can see why WDP got in there being a brit company and all.

    AGD-E is also a Brit company .

    But I bet the choice of the IR3 is more linked to money than anything else (like always with the pro players).

    In no way was I making fun of that gun, I think it is one of the cleanest guns Ive ever seen! And I wasnt asking why dont any good pro teams use them, It was what my friend said during our conversation, I just wanted to say that it "cut me real deep"

    Thanks for the other picture, I love how the gun looks.......clean!!!!

    I thought this was about warp feeds, and though I'm no pro by any means, I was so convinced by the performance and set up of the warp feed that I now own five of them....all set up on various weapons, mostly mags of course.
    Even if the level 10 upgrade offers chop free shooting, I would never give up any one of my warp feeds. I have seriously pissed people off by using the warp. They tell me it's not fair that they don't have a hopper to shoot at and that I can just set up behind a bunker without having to pull back because no one can hit me.
    I just tell them to get a warp feed and stop whining.
    I believe that a lot of people were waiting for a Halo, and disregarded the warp feed for a few reasons.
    One is they think it's bulky,adds weight, and throws off the balance of the gun. The other is it costs a bit more than a Halo and people thought a Halo would still give them what they need.
    The Halo, though fast at feeding, is more of a blimp than any other hopper out there, leaving a great target to shoot at. It's feed rate is excellent, and it's now become reliable with the "B" upgrade.
    It cannot outdo the warp though, because of the simple fact that the warp reduces your profile to half the usual size. This is a huge benefit. One which I mentioned has aggravated a few of my opponents more than enough to convince them to purchase one.
    The warp feed still needs a bit of time to catch on. Once manufacturers start building gun bodies to fit the warp and get rid of the annoying powerfeed crossing over your sight path, you'll see more people being convinced as yet another benefit of the warp comes to be reality.
    I have held Sledgehammers E-mag Extreem, and it is a wonderful feeling to have nothing obstructing your vision. I will be getting me one of those things real soon.
    One last thing about the warp feed, it is reliable as hell.
    I have only taken apart one of my warp feeds, just once to see what it looks like inside. I never have had a reason to otherwise. They never get paint or dirt inside and always perform great with good batteries.
    If pros ain't using it now, they're just still in denial of its benefits. That's not going to stop me from taking mine out on the field!!!
    Thanks to Tom for changing the game again!

    Cris, I'm pretty sure you can. And if you cant, a little retro-fitting will do the job, but I would at least get a low-rise for it.

    As far as warps, they will catch on.

    As far as that mag, I'm proud to say it belongs to a fellow midsouther!

    I played a 3-man tourney with my warp/lvl 10 combo, and WOW. Not only did I not chop a ball, but I didn't get any hopper hits in the normal position, and the one hopper hit I sustained blovked me from a very painful throat hit. I let some guy with a broken bonebrake angel shoot it, and he commented about it's weight. The next game I proceeded to nail him with a hopper hit while his gun was chopping paint like a mother! I bet he gets a warp someday...
