I pretty much run along the lines that if it is not brass, then it is a Tippmann that I shoot...the only exception to that rule is going to be the H7 shortly...But I suspect that I will still resort to my PMI for pump play more often than not.
Otherwise it is my Phenom or TPX. All the while one of my buddies I play regularly with is tweaking his marker or calling himself out because his electronics are out of whack...I simply smirk and remind him "Mechanical for the win!!"

Please don't count me among the prejudiced. I love my Tippmanns. The only parts I've had to replace are detents, and even those last for years. Oh, and a couple parts that were missing when I got the Carbine.

Every time a player "upgrades" to a different marker, they have to learn how that particular marker shoots. And that learning curve hurts their progression.
I see guys that switch markers often, and all they are doing is messing up their muscle memory. Which is one of the reasons I use the same gun I started with... As progression is reduced every time you switch gear to something "better".

Tippmann, hands down.
I don't look down on Tippmanns or their owners. 2 of the 5 guns I've bought new have been Tippmanns. I however, don't like Tippmanns for my style of play. Too long, not efficient, not Cocker threaded, and take awhile to field strip (on the off chance you have to do it since they are reliable).
If all I played was Outlaw or someplace without HPA fills, I'd rock a Carver One on a 20oz CO2 and have a party.

Dr. says it will clear up
Nothing wrong with Tippman's or people who use them. My buddy has got me plenty of times with his a5. I just give em a hard time because I have never owned one, shoot, I have never even played a game with one. My friends all gave me crap because they all shoot em and I don't. My first gun (after the BE) was a spyder. After that a cocker and that is where I found love. The gun you use the most is your most accurate gun, I just keep getting better now that I have settled in on my go to.
Autocockers are not more accurate, I'm just more accurate when I shoot autocockers.
