Still have and use my Redz 3+2 harness that I won at Castle Conquest in 2005. Excellent piece.

Dye Rotor. I bought one from the first run of them in 2009 and it's still an absolute rock. Feeds reliably, works absolutely great. Shells are scarred but still works.

I’ve got an original Dye Rotor that has 100+ cases and runs like a champ.

As far as markers go I’ve got an Eclipse Gtek that I’ve owned around four years that has seen plenty of use/abuse briefly as a main shooter for me and frequently as a loaner. So far I’ve only had to clean/lube the bolt 5-6 times and cleaned/lubed the regulator once. No replaced orings, no broken parts.

Me.

No matter how beat up and broken I am, I always come through clutch on the field.

I surprise even myself sometimes.

My phantom and my T2.
Both rock solid no issue shooters.

And my original DYE rotor. I have been using that thing for like 7 years or something. It is on it's third lid because I use it so much. Internals work like new.

Depends on what you mean by “kickin’”. I’ve got a couple of eggs that I’ve had for what seems like forever. Battery doors, lids, etc. all broke years ago but the eggs still function fine & i still use them.

Same here. Bought my Redz 3+2 in either '04 or '05. Still have and use it. Very good harnesses.

12V VL Revolution with the indestructible shells. Bought 2 used ones over a decade ago & still use them. Darn good on batteries too.

I had a phantom that I heard some rattling inside, didn't think anything of it and still used it over the weekend, no problems. Went to go take her apart the next day and found the power tube shaft threads had snapped off of the cup seal and were now two seperate parts, but she kept shooting, that always amazed me

Absolutely the best pants ever made are the JT FX Concept 2010 pants. They were $150 new and for good reason. Build quality is unreal. Been used over 100 times and they still look pretty darn good, and I'm HARD on my paintball pants for sure!

I got a JT FX jersey many years ago and I am a big fan. I still use a 15+ year old JT proflex. I am a huge fan of JT soft goods, they've always held up. I also have a pair of XSV pants (not sure who made them) that are close to 15 years old and they're in great shape. I even use them as snow pants sometimes when I get a lot of snow and have to shovel. In a box somewhere in the basement is a pair of JT team pants that are just a little older that I loved but they saw a lot of wear back in the day so they aren't pristine. Still very fieldable though...
