Opinions On Shoulder Stocks?

So I've always dismissed having a stock on my marker just because I've primarily played speedball although I've found running a remote line to my gun with a stock more comfortable. Well, the local speedball field is jacking up prices and running down so I've started playing woodsball and it's more usable now.

So, the quest for the proper shoulder stock begins......epic music plays here*

I don't really want something where I have to bend my neck backwards to sight down the gun. I also don't want something that will only fit my SP-1 or will only fit my Tippmann 98. I'd prefer it to work on all my guns. So I've come to the conclusion that a Bottomline mounted stock is my best bet. I was initially going for the T2W stock as it looks amazing and looks like it would best fit my likes, but it's crazy expensive and hard to find. So I think a good option is the Lapco T Stock With The Drop?

Anyone have any opinions on stocks? Please leave comments and suggestions, I don't want to buy something that I won't like.

Depends on the gun. Love the adjustable stock on my Phantom. The air thru stock on my Tippmann balances the weight. Other than that I just shoulder my tank like a stock.

I've always found the T-stocks to work best for paintball. Sure they don't look half as awesome as the milsim stocks but they are very functional.

to me, it doesn't matter what style you play, as a stock only adds weight and does the same thing that a tank does, in a bottomline setup. that's the whole point of using remote lines, to remove weight off the gun and make it easier to handle. i know there are people that come from firearms backgrounds, that like to shoulder guns, but after looks, paintball and real guns have nothing else in common, IMO.

with that said, go with what is comfortable for you. if you like Lapco T-stocks, and its comfortable for you, go for it. it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. no one here plays the same way, holds the guns the same way, is the same size and same arm length. so whatever you like and whatever you want, be damned anyone else, since they are your guns and you have to use them, not anyone else.

Personally, I like the type that screw into a bottomline ASA. I've used them for years on every marker I own except my T9 and 9.1 One advantage of them is that by simply replacing the ASA (to one with a different angle), you can get one that fits you perfectly.

The lapco drop stock is quite comfortable, though really best used with smaller sized tanks.

CAR stocks are quite impractical with out a very, very tall sight rail on the thing (just to give you a plane to aim along).

If I end up getting the Lapco I'll run a 9 ouncer or a remote cord to it. I had a Car stock on my old m98 and it didn't work at all, couldn't see a thing.
