I still swear by my PTWs. The reliability, the ease of use and the overall consistency kill many AEG's out of the box. I'm lazy, I don't care to tweak and maintain a gun all the time. I know tomorrow, after not playing for awhile or opening it up, I can pull out my dub and kick ass. I don't have to worry about it at all, and can still be competitive. Have AEG's improved, yes, but for me, all I will use is my dubs and don't see that changing for a long long time. The real steel compatibility and feeling are bonus, plus the mag cut off rules.
