If you have the money, sure.

And it's Dye DAM (you'll have a hard time finding them if you search Day)

I would highly recommend one, if you have the cash. Our whole team runs with the DAM...

I have one. Had one for about a year now. I haven't had any problems that we're not fixed by cleaning/reassembling or calling a tech at dye. Any problems I had were caused by me and some small mistake I made with reassembly.

A lot of people have problems with ball breaks but I found that to be directly related to bad bore sizing or bad paint. Once I changed over to the freak barrel I had no problems. Don't use soft or brittle paint in the mags, when under pressure the mags put enough pressure on the balls to break sensitive balls.

I would complain about the efficiency. I can get 5, 140 pods out of it, about 900 balls and it is done. For magfed that isn't a big deal but if you are using hopper and mags like I do at big games it is frustrating. For what you pay for it I feel you should get 8 or 9 pods out of it.

MY biggest issue with it is like he said above^ Don't use high end paint in the mags. Tried to shoot redemption through them once and I spent about a week cleaning the gun, the mags, EVERYTHING haha.

My DAM is the only gun that made me feel like the gun made me a better player. I absolutely loved it. Wish I didn't have to sell it...

I use mine with paint in the hopper and fs in the mags. It is spectacular. Requires a bit of setup to be optimized. It is not perfect, but it is pretty dang close and worth it because no other marker does it (shoot two types of paint from one platform) as well as the Dam.

The Newer Kingman guns can do this, but I see what you mean. The DAM will stay top of the pile for a while.

It took me awhile to get the hang of first strike. But the dam shoots them like a champ. You have to zero your scope with baby steps out to the range you feel you will use it most and you will definatly need a riser that you can angle on the fly so you aren't aiming 20 feet over your targets head.
