Suggest a launcher
 
Trying to make paintball part of Rook training here at Norwich.

I need 2 "launchers" I know nothing about them. School me please with your experiences with them.

The Havoc launcher seems to be a favorite form what I have seen on the field. The MKX from JSC is a distant second. I imagine that the price difference is part of the reason for the difference. I have seen a few Havocs failing to perform on the field but I do not know how old they were or how they were maintained so I am not sure if that has anything to do with reliability of the launcher itself.

Personally I have been on the lookout for a launcher (on the cheap) to play around with but it has been very low on my priority list. I have been leaning towards the Havoc because I think it would look good under the SR1.

If you're coming to the Guns 4 Hoses game @ Xtreme, I'll have my Havoc if you want to check it out.

My wife and I plan on making it, Prereg ends Friday right?

I'll check it out. These aren't anything that I'm going to be using myself but it will be used by college kids with pretty heavy use for about 2 months out of the year.

Nish,
Not real sure what you are looking to launch. This CSV19 Pneumatic Antenna Launching System might do the trick for you.

I'd wipe it down with a microfiber ;)

I have owned several Havoc launchers and all of them were great. Never seen or used a JCS launcher so I cant comment on those.

lol Ive had mine for like 2 years,owned 3 different ones and I have never been to a "big game"..ever. Its never gone against a tank. Ive played "tag" with a set of them, used them in a few small games and annoyed the hell out of my friends on new years but never used it for its actual purpose.

Its just a stupid expensive fun toy I own. I want to bring it to LL6 but I dont think Ill get an AT card :-(. Would be cool if I can use it for the "mag fed" madness on friday though. Its pretty dam realistic looking now so I feel they should allow it:rolleyes:
