Most Playable Paintball Pistol? Why?

What is the most playable paintball pistol, and why is it special?
Sorry for any brands overlooked in the poll.

Having never played pistol only before, I'd say the TipX is the best, just from handling them. It's miles better than any of the STBB style pistols, and many advantages over the T8. Namely, cheaper mags and a better layout overall. That said, the T8 points a little better, and has FSR capabilities out of the box.

Can anyone defend the AGD choice? I have heard negative reviews of the sydarm compared to making a mag pistol.

Gotta go with a Sheridan.

But not the PGP.

The PMI1 or a a P68SC are my personal favorites.
There's enough length to be able to push into airball bunkers (if that's your thing) and enough weight and balance that to me they just point very easily.

I love Phantoms but I have to have a stock or I can't hit anything.

I've tried TiPX and hated it, although I'm fairly certain I had a lemon. Ran a Zues and while it shot well it was heavy and prone to blowing O rings plus needs to be modified for a feed more like what agent Smith does. Everyone I know with a Tiberius seems to have issues. At this point I'm starting to think the whole platform is just bad luck. With that said I'm hoping to get a AGA 62 up and running so I can embarrass myself with that. I just can't stay away.

This is my worry too, but I am willing to drink some Kool Aid. I am still looking for a pusher to get me on board.

Ive tried several different pistols,mainly for a back up for scenarios
Arikon-Too heavy,pierce pin and orings sucked
T8-quality but heavy,grip&mags are horribly huge
Piranha USP-the only playable pistol Ive owned.Light,decent reload,takes a ton of abuse and still fires decently.Easily the best of the lot.I even converted mine to FA with a electro frame

I may try the FSC when they hit the used market

I love my Mag pistol. I've always wanted a Sydarm, but never could afford one. I saved a few bucks building it, and aside from a little welding, it's all off-the-shelf parts. If I were to buy a new pistol, it'd be a TipX, but I've got a couple more Mag pistols to put together first.

Do you have any pics or a build thread? Is it heavy?

A pistol that uses 10 round tubes would be great.
