Is paintball better than airsoft?

Hey guys the tittle bring you in? hehehe

I used to play pro paintball, I played many turnements all around the world including nppl Huntington Beach, played for some big teams, including meeting Oliver Lang many times..... I'm also a certified eclipse and dye/proto tech but I can tech any marker. I also played woodsball including wassaga beach paintball big game every year with a full woodsball set up do to sponsorships.. Over 2000 people. Blah blah blah and I have to say for the time I went airsofting at ultimate airsoft yesterday night! I have never had as much fun in my entire life doing another hobby or sport! I am now leaving paintball, and won't go back.

I'm am now completely addicted to airsoft! F&@$ paintball

Thanks for reading
Quattro.

Atta boy, another convert! I too turned to airsoft, because paintball was simply lacking in everything for me

Happy that you've seen the light . Cut the cord and ditch the tanks, hoppers and neon jerseys. Thankfully I bypassed that part and never got into paintball at all.

QUATTROISKING,

No need to sell your equipment. Just add airsoft to it.

I have many friends that don't play airsoft but paintball only. I still hang out with them at the Wasaga big games with my paintball equipment. Still fun to see paint bust on people's goggles. Still like woodsball.

If you own a EGO or DM, I doubt it has a good resale value since paintball has slowed down.

You may want the new KWA KRISS Vector. I got one on order.

Thats what i keep tryin to tell my friends who play pb glad uve seen the light. U think that indoor was fun wait till you get outside and see what its like to actually have rangd and accuracy and not have to look at a bunch of dudes in florecent jup suits hidin behind florecent inflateable obstacles (laughs at speedballers) dont get me wrong if u like welts and bruises and 10-25Ę pr shot and in most cases an odd looking gun with a ugly ass hopper stickin out the side (not including of course the few almost nice lookin mag fed markers) then pb can be fun...ish.
Again glad u are converted welcome to the dark side or the light side... The cool side at least lol.
Hope to see you out on the field soon.
Only plus i can give to pb is the sound of the markers but if u can find an d classic as gun (escort system one of those may be right up yer alley the work off of an external air source and such) or even tbe new gbbr we are getgin into now so we gots the bang bang now too and we did have it back in the day lol.
Check the video in the link. I wish i could find one if those adound

It's all about personal preference
Some people fucking LOVE nascar
I personally don't see how watching a car make left turns for 500 laps requires any skill
So I'm die hard formula 1

But yeah, personal preference lol
Welcome to airsoft!

F1? How about MotoGP and Dakkar Rally?

@OP: It's a bit of a loaded question. I'm kind of getting into stock class paintball because it's easy to grab your gear and go out to a PB field to play with it and spend like $20 for a day of play. Whether or not I'd actually be any good against people with 20+ BPS ramped electro markers is another question.

Also I find that day skirmish airsofters tend to be really trigger happy and dump hundreds of BB's with no qualms (looking at you mag ticklers...). Which is part of the reason why stock class (or super stock/modified stock) looks appealing to me from what I've researched and daysim/milsim games with ammo restrictions are more my cup of tea.

Welcome to airsoft!
This is a good point, personal preference; whatever connects with you. I personally enjoy Nascar over F-1, but I know that F-1 racing is incredibly more exetreme. Paintball's biggest strength is it's weakness; namely paint marking. airsoft is way more conducive to military style, tactical, combat sporting. There are of course smaller paintball rounds now, but you still won't acquire the versatility of airsoft in itself. Personally I don't want balls of gooey crap getting flung at me.

Let's face it though; the most extreme of us would be playing simunition games if we could.

I hear getting hit by a simulated round up close is like getting hit by a truck .....at least we know hits would be called .....or cried, whatever.

Though I haven't had the privilege myself, I have seen the damage a Simunition round will do at close range. It isn't pretty.

Welcome to the Airsoft side "Darth Vadar Voice"

I myself made the switch from paintball to airsoft cannot knock paintball still fun no doubt

Prepare to save tons of money on BBs .. The money I spent a day at paintball I could go to airsoft twice for the same price

Walking into your car after your done playing no changing the list goes on
