Couple of random questions. (Trigger and camo)

Having fallen in love with the trigger on my angel, im dying to know if there is anything out there in modern markers that can compare. I have an rsx, it does not. What about the deception?
This bring all me to the next question.
I love the flashy markers, but after playing this scenario this past weekend with a bright white i4, orange rotor, smart parts jersey and dye pants, needless to say, I was pretty easy to spot while in the woods.
So I may be looking to purchase all similar gear but in a more appropriate color set.

Any input is appreciated.

OCP, BDU, JT cargo pants (olive drab) or similar pants, Real tree/mossy oak lightweight jersey from bass pro shops (or walmart) , mask, gun and gear in subdued colors/earth tones/matte finishes + plus whatever your usual padding is worn underneath.

At least that's how I do woodsball. I can hide perdy good.

Take some pictures of the terrain where you play and try to match the colouring in those photos. I've never seen anything funnier than a line of 5 or so guys lying on the side of a berm in lush green grass wearing a more desert oriented camouflage.

If you play in the shade particularly you're better off going slightly darker rather than slightly lighter.

I mostly just wear olive drab myself, with some dark browns thrown in.

find tree bark camo. Tree bark never changes by the season. Suggestions are timberghost (if you can find it), ultimate camo, mossy oak bottomlands or another variation of tree bark camo.

What angel do you have? The trigger changed pretty drastically from the earlier models to the later ones.

Seconded. Doesn't fade as quick either.

Tiger Stripe everything Just because! But dark earth tones work good. Real tree blends amazing in the woods of CT. You can find it cheap at any sporting good store in the hunting section.

There really needs to be a like button.....

Anywho, anything with alternating earthy colors will help mask your form. If its all a single color, or the pattern is too small, it will stand out from a distance.

But nothing is more satisfying than getting those really close stalks and surrenders in bright colors!

Tiger stripe for cool points. OD or khaki for simple versatility. Flecktarn or alpenflage for something awesome and unique that works pretty darn good in the northeast unless it's july.
