What to consider when purchasing the right projectile
Whether you are considering purchasing a new paintball marker, or you have already got yourself one, you will need to know how to choose the right projectiles that will help you get the best from your marker so you can conquer the field. But how do you know which projectiles are the best for your marker and where do you go to purchase them?
This month, BattleGear UK give you the ultimate guide to choosing the right projectile, including what you need to consider plus some of our own personal favourites. It’s not all about the right colour or how many rounds you can shoot! You will need to consider your marker, the style of play you are adopting and what you want to achieve with your chosen projectile.
What type of paintball marker do you own?
Paintball is a fun sport enjoyed by millions worldwide nowadays, but it’s important to remember that this is considered a competitive sport, so you need the right gear and equipment in order to be a good player! What many players forget when buying their ammunition is that they also need high-quality paintballs in order for them to safely fire their marker.
One of the most important things a player looks for in a magfed marker is its ability to maintain pinpoint precision. As an outdoor sport, it’s commonplace to have markers taken out into fields or woods so it’s particularly essential when choosing which marker you play with that you are proud to take it with you anywhere and everywhere! This is why the First Strike range was created; made with the finest materials and by one of the world leaders in performance markers, this brand has been designed for players like you!
Another great paintball marker company is Planet Eclipse. Known for creating some of the best paintball markers in the world, Planet Eclipse really went all out when making their first magfed marker, the EMF100. Its markers shoot both with speed and accuracy. The EMF100, in particular, is highly consistent, reliable, robust and has a great overall design that puts the marker in a good position alongside its competition.
This paintball brand was introduced to the market back in 1986 and has since been known for its high-quality markers. Development of their products typically targets both professional and amateur players, but they also offer budget-friendly models for newcomers. Tippmann paintballs work best with any type of marker, but they are a smart choice for those who are cost-conscious and casual players!
Valken paintball is based in New Jersey and offers a huge array of paintball products within the industry. Valken keep budgets in mind when designing and creating its products. Alongside their budget-friendly markers, Valken creates a range of spare parts and upgrades to ensure your marker always stays in tip-top condition and doesn’t become outdated on the battlefield.
