You guys are damn rich for this lol 作者: 建中小正太 時間: 2016-11-21 23:41
There are many ways to modify AEGs to lightening trigger response and I am sure you have heard of them. No offense, but external power source seems kind of a step backward... 作者: pixy0208 時間: 2016-11-22 02:28
Hey thanks for checking out our video! Yea we definitely spend more money then we probably should on this hobby..And no offense taken! I think the airsoft culture in Taiwan/HK is much different than it is here. Most airsofters in North America grew up playing paintball and so all the fields and players are used to filling and carrying around these hpa or co2 tanks. And like I've read in other pages, airsofters in Asia had the history of carrying around tanks when airsoft first started, but that wasn't a thing at all over here, so we don't see going to hpa as a step backwards.I definitely agree that aegs can be setup to perform or even outperform our hpa guns.
However in the tippmann case, the kick you get from either tm nextgen or kwa erg (both of which players in our group owned) is not comparable at all to the tippmann. A gbb is definitely more satisfying and realistic to use, but in SoCal where it's speedsoft central, having an aeg mag let's us put down more firepower to stop those rushes. Of course I'm sure there are people with gbbrs that fare well in SoCal... but we just aren't that pro lol.
Now as for the polarstar. About 30-40% of the players here will run some type of electro pneumatic engine. (Wolverine, polarstar, valken etc) at some fields that ratio is more like 70%. Like I previously mentioned about the paintball culture, people here are more accustomed to torturing ourselves with the hpa tanks... also the weather here is much friendlier. (I can't even imagine playing airsoft in Taiwan's summer, let alone carrying another tank)
But another reason why we use hpa engines is just our personal preference and experiences. Having owned multiple aegs, our polarstars just always works. It not only works but it is always a strong performer with our very limited tech skills. So to us, carrying that tank around is worth it to save us headaches from teching the gearbox and wondering when the 11.1 battery is going to break something.
Well that was probably more info than you wanted to read, but hopefully this helps provide a better perspective to our scene! Thanks again for your views and comments. 作者: pixy0208 時間: 2016-11-22 03:15
GBBR does work better in subtropics/tropics and I think this is why HPA airsoft is not and will not be a thing in SEA region. Also with proliferation of stock guns with MOSFET or just flat out better contact switches and dank internals 11.1V have become the norm over here, there really isn't a need for external power save for M134s or GBB LMGs if they come to be. Again, it's nice of you to explain! 作者: Jagdtiger 時間: 2016-12-3 14:42

The major issue is that HPA system are too expensive to run and maintenance is so hard. The price I heard is around 10K HKD 作者: pixy0208 時間: 2016-12-6 11:28
Expensive is true, but maintenance is very easy for sure.
