I tend to disagree with that. My logic being, hold a phone book at arms length and run with it, now hold it close to your body and do the same thing. Can you hold wieght better close to you or further away? That is of course with out the ancor point of the tank in your shoulder so it's not a flawless example.

Oh and currently only have drops on two of 30+ guns, I just run a smaller tank now. No longer need a bigger tank, I couldn't go through a case in a day to save my life, I've tried.

If loud pipes save lives imagine what bright pink helmets could do.

I have long arms, so a long setup is more comfortable for me.
I also think its alot more stable when snapshooting and running-and-gunning.

To each his own i gues
Now 200% more Bork then the next leading brand!

Drops are not gimmicks, I still use them since I have short arms. I put them on markers for my 12 year old daughter to use for the same reason.

I like a drop forward in woodsball. I've had a lapco drop on my cocker since I've had it. I ran a 45/45 on it as well. Not for a large tank, not for a short marker(I ran a 14" barrel with apex on it usually) . I just liked the way it balanced in my hand better and I felt like I could move the marker around better with it. For speedball, I didn't like it. It just felt awkward when playing super tight.

wait a year or two for vogue to change? =)

in a more serious tone - trends come and go - but to each his own - some like - some don't - some don't care - I fall into the 3rd category.

I have some markers with
some without

I use what I feel like using

Canadian to a fault

I run drops on everything I use - I have since I started playing and had a gun capable of it. (First gun was a Factory F/A. )

My preferred setup is a drop-sideways/forwards. It's a modded KAPP DropZone II on an extension from a SP Shocker Max-Flo setup (remember those?) that allows me to move the tank forward and on an angle to left, sideways. Lets me tuck my wrist in more towards the centerline of the gun, drops the gun in front of my mask, and lets me sight down the side of the gun. I can't necessarily walk the trigger easily, but I don't do that anyways, so it's a moot point. Not everyone would like it.

My other setup is on my STBB - it's a small Shocktech drop with integrated rail, with a 32Degrees on-off ASA with a dovetail milled in the top. It shoulders very nicely with 9-12oz tanks on it, puts the gripframe nicely in my hands, and doesn't make it too long.

I've never like long-feeling guns, and drops let me run 12-14" barrels on guns. The only thing I wouldn't run a drop on would be a Typhoon, and that's because the female Stab setup that I prefer on them effectively IS a drop.
