Because there are still Tippmann fans out there that can get the performance out of them. I hear a Tippmann sponsored team out of Indiana, The Four Horsemen are running them this season so they are worth more a piece of toilet paper...

Didn't I hear that Tippmann Effect is coming back (or already back) to the pro leagues and they're shooting Crossovers?

Compare apples to apples, nofxkid2005 is spot on. It doesn't matter how good the eNMEy is (and I love mine), it simply isn't in the same category as the Crossover or E-Mag. It doesn't have a secondary electronic function.

Depends on your definition of "better". I like the feel of the Crossover a lot more then the eNMEy. Also the sound signature of the eNMEy bugs me. I like the idea of the eNMEy, but there are things about it I can't stand. Same goes with the Crossover. Here's the real question though;

If the Crossover were to come out tomorrow at it's current price point, would you want one/be interested in one?

Only if it had a better designed valve than the X7, and didnt use the brass gas thru.

I am pretty sure the Crossover has the flex valve...same as the phenom...thus same guts, different shell and a slight difference.

Over all IF the Crossover came out at 350 it would have succeeded but it was initially priced way to high for what it offered. I would consider one now for the price if I wasn't content with the markers I already had.

The Flex valve was just to unreliable. All three of my Phenoms were just too unreliable.
Too many parts in that thing.
At least the Enmey is simple, just like the valve in an Automag.
