I have a remote line, and a flurry camouflage vest. No, I have never had any problems with my line getting stuck underneath my pods. If you do get a remote, get one with a slide check valve. This lets you disconnect your gun from your remote without DE-gassing the gun. I'm not talking about a quick connect, I'm talking about a slide check. Ever used a quick connect for an air compressor? That is the same thing. But at around 150 PSI. The remote quick connect is at about 900 PSI. You can't disconnect it without DE-gassing the air line first. A slide check lets you do this.

Like I asked you in the other thread, Please use correct punctuation. You have a shift key, two in fact, please use them to your advantage.

I remotely connected to my marker. The first setup I had with it was annoying, but then I kept adjusting it until I made it work for me.

My current setup is a Palmer's mounted behind my A5 cyclone on a scope mount. From there, I connect, via microline, to an airthru stock. Out the very end of the stock, I connect my remote. My pods / air is on my right side and I shoot left handed, which puts the remote across my chest and just a bit tighter, while at the same time, it being connected to the back of my marker, keeps it out of my way.

Yes, Yes, No. I never use pods, mostly because they pull down my pants when I try to run. :lol: Also, I conserve ammo and like speedball matches, so a hopper usually lasts me 2 rounds.

I just had my first paintball match ever today.
No remote lines or pods were used. But it was awesome. I think I fired about 300-400 balls.
My "kill/death" ratio was positive so I did quite good for a first time.

Including one crazy back-headshot from a distance when someone tried to run further back to other cover; followed by me yelling: HEADSHOT!!!
Also on one round there were two guys in a bunny suit with better markers VS the rest. The stupid asses thought to find cover in the "crashed airplane".
After running around the flanks, I shot about 20 balls in there via the back entrance, followed by a maniacal laughter. :twisted:
They surrendered within a few minutes :roll:

The only thing I didnt like was when one guy ran past my cover and hit me straight in the side of my ribs, from within 3 or 4 meters distance. Rule was 5 was minimum....
