Level of difficulty, skill development and then cost of play.
I feel that playing pump makes you a more deadly semi- player, it builds snap shooting skills as well as teaching the importance of maneuvering , forward motion and bunker selection.
Plus it's fun as balls and leaves me smiling every time I come back from playing. The quality of the equipment today is amazing, not only in consistency, but variety, fit and finish. I shoot CCM open class markers and I absolutely feel I have the best piece of equipment in play every time I step on the field. That confidence in my equipment I also feel allows me to settle down and play without being concerned about failure.

#1) mainly: pump = more challenging, semi = boring
pumps attract other pumps - and it seems to me pump players are much more challenging opponents.
pump play seems to attract guys who seem have a higher level of respect for the game and for each other.
pump players mix well w/ mixed level groups. e.g., cuts back on noobie bashing - and that is good for the game.
I can barely afford to play pump. Any increase in cost and I'de be forced out of the game.

More "grass roots" or "classic" style, more my taste
I mainly play new players, it wouldn't be fair for them if I were to use an electro or semi as I play a lot, and I want them to have fun, not get shut down.
Cheaper, paint wise.
CCM doesn't make a semi or electro (I do have an all CCM semi tho, not sponsored, just obsessive)
All the cool kids are doin' it! (An obvious joke)

Walking without rhythm
I think I just have more fun when I play a laid back game with a bunch of like minded people.
Pump allows me, and others, to play as hard and aggressivly as we want but stops all the nasty problems of overshooting and paying out the nose for pallets of paint.
There is also something just exilerating about snapping out of a bunker and getting an elimination with only one shot instead of laying a mass volly down and getting the elim with only one hit.

Originally I switched over because paint costs were a lot, and I've heard so much about the nice challenge of pump. I could easily pay for semi again, but fell in love with pump.
I love the challenge. I love when some kid tries mowing you down spraying pod after pod at you and you shoot maybe a few times and he's the one who's out. It's exciting. I love the challenge, how you have to play more differently. Spraying lines at people from behind a bunker was definitely fun when I was new, but I could tell it wouldn't stick with me. Pump helps you because you have to move around and if I switched back to semi I would definitely be moving a lot more than I used to.

Cost, peer pressure, and a way to keep the game interesting when playing against walk-ons in recball.
