    Doodlebug Sportz (DBS) for speedball, Forest Fire and KC Crusaders for woods. I think KC has an air ball field too, though.

      Age wise we have pretty much everything at my local field. Oldest regular is around 60. Smart parts killed AKA, they can't produce an electronic paintball marker anymore. Eclipse is the current king. They make really quality gear.


      Warpfeeds will need to be bought used, qloaders are a PITA in my honest opinion. Fiddly, hold less than a pod, and can break. Let alone all the junk you need to carry around. AGD who made the warp feed went away for a while and came back, they didn't close, just went quiet. They haven't made them in 10+ years. I'm not a big fan of braided hose, Ninja makes excellent remote lines. The Proconnect is wonderful, push a button and you can disconnect the air and it's sealed to the extremely flexible line, shove it back on the marker and it airs up instantly. They still make giant ass tanks, most people don't run larger than a 90 anymore since markers are way more efficient. You might need a big one for the blazer lol.


      The wait for the blazer will probably be a while. Craig is a nice dude, but it's not uncommon to wait almost a year for anything. My buddy sent him a marker to nickel plate before Covid was ever a thing and it took over 8 months. He got it back and used it a grand total of 2 times before he moved lol. I can't comment on new builds, but from what I've gathered over the years you're in for at least a month or two wait. Nobody will care that you're using a blazer either. If they do they're a wiener.

      You don't need much to be effective on the field. I commonly play hopper ball with a 60 round hopper on my T2 (CCM pump marker). It's patience, knowing when to move, and knowing when to shoot. Remember to communicate too.

      Unfortunately I only have 2 friends up north, and neither have been playing due to covid and what not. Both moved up there right before it happened.

      Hope you enjoy coming back!

        I think an Emek with some upgrades would have been a better choice over a Blazer in every single category except nostalgia reasons, plus you wouldn't be waiting for who knows how long for the Blazer and you'd have alot of leftover cash to actually get out and play.

          Hardly every category lol. It is very light which I don't like, it is made of plastic which I don't like, it has terrible ridges all of the grip which I don't like, the space between the front grip and trigger is too long, it doesn't have any feedback in the trigger, it doesn't look good,` etc etc.

          I just don't really care about things like air efficiency, fire rate, weight or cost so long as it was under my $1K budget. I could easily have bought a used ion for $100 that ramps all day if I cared to. I wanted something personalized that feels like a tank in my hands and gives me some feedback. I am sure the Emek is great, but it doesn't really have anything for me to enjoy about it. Better is relative to the metrics one uses after all.

          Well, welcome back! Based on your comments, you couldn't have found a better site for what you like and don't like. I loved my Blazer, basic black, center feed with the blade trigger but sold it almost a decade ago to Mar. Buying one new, you won't have to deal with it needing a rebuild as most used ones do. Masks have come a long way too, but I still use the Profiler almost exclusively...still have a JT Flex too.

        You’ll be extremely happy with your new blazer. I’ve owned 5 in my paintball career (25 years) and they’ve all been trouble free and just plain work. I’m 41 years old and still have a blast running around with the young guns playing with my old school toys.

          Blazers are amazing. My blazers were the most accurate guns I've shot. Not sure if it was just the configuration made me better at shooting them, or what. They were dead nuts.

          For me the 12 inch vented barrel with wedgits is perfect. Toda I'd have a hard time deciding between a .688 with deep wedgits or a .685 with regular wedgits. either will work for virtually all paint and not need you to mess with inserts. I don't reccomend a freak, just get one or two barrels with wedgits they work all day and need no fuss.

            My blazers have been the same. I’ve not shot any other marker that was so consistent and dead on accurate as a blazer. Well, maybe a Palmer superstocker, but still the same barrel setup with wedgits. This is coming from someone who has owned over 50 plus markers over the years. Many of them custom built.

          Crazy seeing all these 30-somethings posting; I always used to be the young kid around here and now, well, I'm a thirty-something.

          Let me know how you like the Blazer. It's been on my list forever but I never bit the bullet.

          PTP has a really good elbow, as well, that I bought a couple of. I want my elbow to break before my feedneck, generally, and they feel like the right sort of strong for that to happen.

          Also, if you want a quirky electro, I love my J4 Torque. They had some teething pains but mine shoots unbelievably well (all paint considered) and has a lot of soul compared to the plastic guns, where it's a small shop trying something new, but the valve layout is quite reliable, pretty efficient, and is actually somewhat similar in concept to a Shoebox when you think real hard about it. It is, however, light and has a long grip-to-grip distance, which I love (gets me on target faster), but I understand that's a preference. Azodin is the modern Spyder if you need a backup to throw in the bag, and they're well-regarded.

          For heavy barrels, PPS Brass is really the best option, and the junk paint begs for wedgits or "fingers" (that some of the guys here 3D print in rubber) instead of Freak inserts, most days. It really is terrible now. I'd worry about using a cocker barrel adapter and a Freak; if the Freak is tighter than the adapter, you've got an accelerating paintball trying to make the transition. Wedgiting the adapter and using a large-bore barrel might be more reliable.

            Yeah, resumption after a long gap can seem like a pretty uphill task. But, you will feel extremely nice once you will run in the paintball field. You will feel at home and you will just forget that you had ever left this lovely game.
