I blame the cocker guys. Your fingers would get tired on old mags and cockers and double frames let you rocket up to 8 bps.

Capped auto or ramping with a single trigger just makes more sense than fanning a trigger to get the same basic end result (lots of paintballs in the air).
Because there are some of us who can walk an electro in semi and still handle it just fine.

Also, since most tournament leauges specify a double trigger electro, that's whats gonna keep getting produced.

Your first comment is entirely personal preference, which I can agree with.

The latter is part of the reason why I don't understand this. Tournament paintball, compared to the rest of the commercial and non-commercial paintball community, is insignificant. Why then are markers continually made to conform to their play styles and rule sets? I could understand having the option, but as I said before, every single electronic marker currently produced is only available as a double trigger, unless you get into MILSIM or scenario styled guns. Why?

Because no ones going to buy a single trigger electro for tourney.
Double is TWICE as much as single. Nobody wants less, people might start wondering what's in their trousers.

EDIT: Being a bloody hypocrite, hate all modes apart from semi, feel like I'm not in control of the gun. If I want to lay a lot of paint (very rare at your moment) it'll be a good, semi double trigger. Such as a recent angel or axe.

But yeah, I don't own anything with a double trigger. Think there's a WGP hinge somewhere, but it's not on anything.

I was reading think and thinking: "I don't really have a preference, either is fine." Then I looked over at my pegboard...

I own one(1) marker with a double trigger. The other ten are singles. Maybe I do have a preference after all.

Obviously there is a market for a single trigger electro out there. Some will not like it, but some will. I'll call planet eclipse in the morning and somebody sell me an excalibur!

Tournaments are insignificant in the number of players compared to rec ball, but they are significant in the exposure and marketing of a gun. People see pro players or teams that are famous in our community and they take notice of what the person is wearing/shooting and they emulate it. That's just how marketing works, and it does work.

Now why the major companies make the guns with double finger triggers is, IMO more about versatility than anything else. With multiple leagues having multiple rule sets, you need a marker that can effectively be a jack of all trades. Meaning I want to buy one marker I can use for competitive play and recreational play. Because believe it or not, the majority of paintball players do not own 17 markers like many of us on here. (ok, I exaggerate, I'm more like 12 or 13) Now, in order to have one marker that can compete in both PSP and NPPL, you need a double trigger.

Another point, I grew up playing in SoCal, due to to Uncle Sam I haven't played there in about 4 years now, but even back in 2009 most fields there did not allow ramping in rec-ball play. So saying you can just use board programming to make up for it is not always true.

All that said, of my 12 or 13 guns, only 3 have double triggers, but I would not want to change any of those to a single. I guess I just like to swing both ways

Well maybe that is what Bob Long needs to make next. The single/double trigger, spool/poppet changeable marker. He's just about there anyway.

He can always add SC/OC later.

The early timmies had a removable trigger guard and a single trigger option.
