I have a G6r if your interested. Black and blue and also have a luxe red and gold. I feel like people shoot more in woods ball then x-ball/ speedball. I use speedball guns in woodsball all the time. But some of the new Tippmanns, BTs and even spiders guns are getting better over the years. Just depends on what you like. You can really deck out an a-5. When I 1st got into paintball the 98s and a-5 were the best. lol you could put lights, rails, stocks, and scopes. Looks military issues. lol. But they get really heavy.
Also, don't forget that if you get a "nice gun" you will need a good hopper/ loader. I have the dye rotor and the empire prophecy. Both in my book are some of the best.
Find a local paintball shop around you and see if they will let you shoot some of the guns or go out to your local field and see what's new in the sport. I myself have not played in about 1-2 yrs. There are a lot of good guns out that you don't have to pay and arm and a leg for. I know you don't like buying used, but you can really find some good stuff. Hit up your shop and they should give you some kind warranty on something used.
