Paintballing – the essence of excitement, adrenaline and technique. Whether you are completely new to the sport or you have been immersed in the experience for many years, no one can deny that paintballing is a great way of meeting others and keeping fit.
When choosing the perfect marker for you, even veteran players will tell you that it can be one of the most challenging elements. Finding the perfect marker for you will all depend on the type of game you would like to play. In this months blog, we take a look at why MagFed markers are our personal favourite and why they should be yours as well.
MagFed paintballing – for ultimate power and tactical shooting
Whether you are a novice or a professional player, anyone who is involved in any way with the paintball industry will have come across the term MagFed paintball markers at some point.
With many marker types available to purchase, it can be daunting when you are in the market for a shiny new marker to show off your skills at your next event. Luckily, Battlegear UK is always here to make your life easier and we have all the information and benefits you could need to make the choice about whether to enter the MagFed marker world.
Before we discuss MagFed markers in more detail, let’s take a look at the 3 main types of paintball markers available to consumers today:
Types of paintball markers:
- Pump Paintball markers – operated manually, this can be a challenging choice for those paintball players who are less experienced on the field.
- Electronic paintball markers – battery operated with fun features included, these make for a great marker but they will definitely cost you.
- Mechanical paintball markers – our personal favourite, MagFed markers are included in this category. Incredibly realistic, they are becoming a very popular choice in the paintballing world.
The type of marker you choose to purchase will all depend on the feel, look, capabilities and style of play you are looking for when you are at your paintball event. For those looking for a competitive tournament style of play, an electronic marker may be the perfect option for you. Experienced paintball players with the skills may benefit from a pump paintball marker played in the woods.
For the ultimate tactical and strategic experience, however, we would always recommend a Magfed paintball marker. With realistic marker styles and accuracy to stay on target, MagFed products are slowly taking the UK by storm.
The benefits of MagFed paintballing
The realistic feel of shooting with military-grade aesthetics – whilst we want to stress that paintballing should only be used in a safe and non-lethal situation, there is no reason why you cannot adopt the precision and techniques that would be used in a real battlefield experience.
Cost-effective – MagFed markers are more cost-effective to purchase but can easily be upgraded over time and the style of play means you are likely to spend less on ammo!
Tactical games with like-minded others – MagFed paintballing games, such as those organised by OMG events, are a great way to meet and play with others who are all about the tactics that only a MagFed marker will give you.
A challenge to players – Experience a realistic experience in a paintball game that requires more attention, concentration and technique than your average paintball game. Push yourself to new extremes on the battlefield.
The rise of MagFed paintballing
MagFed paintball events are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. Already having a big following in the US, MagFed events are a great way of creating a realistic style of gameplay on the paintball field and brings other like-minded players together to improve the technique and have a much more tactical style of play.
Having a MagFed paintball marker is often the choice for serious paintball players who are keen to improve their play and create a realistic shooting game of paintball. MagFed markers are of course different in their make-up and nature of alternative markers on the market currently. MagFed markers are fed via a magazine whilst regular markers are fed through a hopper.
Paintball players who prefer the shooting style of a MagFed marker will often choose to play games that are MagFed specific. This is due to the MagFed markers having a holding capacity of 20 as opposed to a hopper marker shooting up to 200. Attending specific MagFed games levels the playing field in terms of shooting capacity as it will exclude all those who are playing with hopper markers.
