Some mentioned before, but I have to agree. I have owned or at least played with the following and have been playing for >20 years.
  • Tippmann
  • Automag
  • CCM - or any 'high-end' mechanical
  • Bob Long/Alien/Dye/PE/Macdev - Brand masters.
  • Pretty much any spool over $250
  • Anything cocker. They are simply for players who wanted to personalize their markers on a functional level. Not really improving anything.
  • High end Mil Sim. Play G.I.Joe, I get it. Want to drop four digits just to make sure your web belt loop is the correct dimensions, don't get it.
  • Anything over $400. Same group as high end milsim. I just can't see spending $1000 extra for aesthetics alone.
  • Aftermarket barrels
  • Double triggers
  • 'stock class'
  • brass - Just reminds me of tacky home fixtures
  • 12 grams - Too much of a hassle and expense
  • Anything other than semi, burst and full auto on electronic boards.
  • Debounce... why not add a capacitor and let hardware handle it?
  • 'outfits' - Jeans and a tshirt work for me.
  • hoppers. WORST part of paintball. Ask any new player.
  • 50 cal hate
....sorry just realized I was on a rant.

The design is just terrible. It wasn't made for paintball, so you need a massive draw weight, to the point where it's just dumb bringing it on the field.

You can flame me for this one too, the R7. I had one and hated it. I spent more time with the thing apart cleaning it in the middle of games than playing. The lack of the ability to shoot brittle paint out of a SC gun is in my opinion a bad design. People have come up with some ways to put a CCI TPC inside it to help with brittle paint, but I think it should have came with it originally. There is also the loosening of the 12gr knob.

I just can't thoroughly enjoy snipers. They combine the ROF of pumps with the size and weight of semis. I've tried about every setup under the sun and have finally come to the conclusion that we just don't get along.

Similarly I'm not a fan of ungainly SC guns with long barrels, stocks, or long feed tubes that poke you in the face.

Edit: I'm a small guy with short arms so obviously longer setups get a tad awkward for me

Dangerous Powers. Everyone was hyped up about the G3 Spec R but it sucked, definitelly the FX, horrible gun.

Egos...I don't see why everyone likes them. The ergonomics suck and I just don't like them.

Mini's...seems like a lot of people love them but I hate everything about them.

Vibes and SP-1. Seemed like everyone thought they were amazing 2 years ago but I think they suck.

G6r...it's alright but I wouldn't pay $900 for one.

Phantoms...dare I say it. I don't see what's so great about them...

Anything Dye...overpriced crap.

I've yet to find an electro I absolutely love...trying an Axe next.

Milsim guns setup to look like real guns. Just looks like a lot of extra weight to me.
The whole new gun for every year thing, the refinements from year to year cannot justify buying each new model, but some guys do??????
