Wait, didn't the Etha come out around the same time? Wonder how APG made the decision. Anyone read the article?
Yeah, imo they should've chosen the etha. It's a lot better for the price. I wonder if the reason they chose tippmann is for publicity or something like that.

"_____ of the Year" doesn't mean it has to be new. Just look at the car industry.

That said, I'd think that the Crossover gained points over the Etha based on being a new concept. Just-another-electronic-poppitt versus a pretty ground-breaking electro/mechanical offering is a pretty easy choice in my book. The Etha might be the "better" gun...but the Crossover is definitely the more imaginative.

I'm a little surprised. Isn't the Crossover more expensive yet roundly inferior to its competition in every way?

I thought they were gone too.
Used to be I could find them at Barnes and Noble, Wal-Mart, Books-a-Million.
Then just Books-a-Million.
Now, nowhere.

Considering that APG is nothing but a bound copy for advertising, I'd wager it went to whoever spent the most.

It's a neat concept, but is anyone using it? I haven't played much this year but I haven't exactly heard a lot of chatter about the Crossover.
