To all Woodsball/Scenario Players

when you play the big games and regular games do you use a remote line to your tank. If you do do you have a remote tank do you use a special vest?

I don't use a vest, but after checking some out over the weekend, I really really see the appeal to them for large games.

Extra carry paint and a nice remote, and even a water pack? Yeah.. I see the appeal.

Of the hundreds of scenario players I know, I would say about 10% use vests, and even less use remotes. Remotes, especially coiled remotes, suck big in thick wooded areas. I know a ton of people that used to use vets or remotes, but most decided it was pointless and stopped wearing them.

I run my E-Triggered A5 on a remote. My UTG vest holds 8 pods plus vertical tank and hydration pouch, handy for long games.

Currently I run a 114 on a remote. I use a vest when the weather is cool enough for it. When it's hot, I drop it into a kamel pack. Stainless steel hose. no braided for me. Don't have TOO much trouble with it snagging on branches.

I used to run a remote and a Spec Ops vest. And when I ran a Milsim gun it was a must. Now for the most part if I use a semi I run air on gun. Or pump so I don't need the extra weight any more. I do miss the radio pouch being high up on the chest. I have a Camel back for carrying water but I try to stay light and fast. Feyd.............

remote tanks were popular back when everyone used massive 3k tanks, now with 4.5k tanks commonly available remotes are not as needed.
Some people are like slinkies......kinda useless but they do make me smile when pushed down the stairs.

I wear a belt, and put a tank in there as a spare. Rarely do I use a remote.
