I bought a piranha LB when they were "new" in Houston. I thought that was hot stuff.
some things are stickier than others

My first higher end would have to be my Shocktech SFL E-Series Autococker, I think the original retail on it was something like $1650 or something ridiculous like that. I bought it new from NPS's bargain table at a big game as "as-is". Got it for $560 with a "bad" board and other issues. Walked over to the Planet Eclipse tent and they had it running in less than 5 minutes. That was back in 2004-5 ish, the E2's weren't out yet from what I remember. Still have it today and I never use it anymore, it just stays in its case looking awesome.
My first high end for its time pump is my 2008 Grey Ghost. Bought it new and its awesome, other than having a direct feed option that looks good I can't think of much I would really complain about. I love it though, it comes with me every time I go out to play.

I acquired a second hand KP2 and a PGP.
As I got out for a while around late 1990/early 1991, the last marker I acquired was the Level 5 Automag. I still have it, and even take it out once in a while. The marker is like using a tank... Nearly indestructible.

My first "better than a basic stack-tubed blowback" was an ANS 'cocker, the slab-sided right-feed model before the "swoopy" GX3 came out, can't remember what they called those. That didn't last long because I couldn't leave off messing with the timing and whatnot.
Then it was a Tribal BBT 2.2 which served me well for a year or so before I sold it to a friend who effed it up and sold it back to me (and then I fixed it and sold it to another Tribal aficionado). Oh, and had one of each of the different Tribals out there, but they also got sold off, didn't really play with any of them.
Then let's see, had several 'mags (all Level 7s, nothing spectacular), all the parts for a sweet micro-cocker (half-blocked Jackal RDL mini body) but never got together or working, an '05 PMR, an Invert Mini, an '05 Matrix, and finally settled on an Infinity Legend for my current high-end electro. Plan on getting a CCM T2 at some point, and when the Legend dies, because they don't make it anymore, I'll probably settle on an Invert Axe for my electro choice.
That doesn't count practically every model of marker Tippmann made up to the Model 98 Custom, don't really count those as "high end" considering when I had them, but they were part of the collection.

Black right feed WGP Autococker with a red hinge, Dye Boomstick, metal shroud cover. Scored it on eBay in around 03/04 for a great deal back then. This was after my Piranha. But it never got used, I have owned a few that I never even played with!

05 icd freestyle. Bought it after I quit a job of 12 years & drew out my retirement. I think I paid $650 for it. Absolutely loved it but as I always do I sold it & moved on to something else before long.
DO NOT DEAL WITH eXotiC1nE!!
