Tippmann is excited to launch a new marker. The FT-50 utilizes the same design of the popular FT-12 with a flip top, tool-less design but with new internals and barrel for .50 games. There are many advantages to .50 games including a lower weight, less impact and less mess to clean. When the FT-50 is fully loaded with paint, the smaller hopper still carries over 300 paintballs but the overall weight is much lighter. It also provides a lower impact force that will appeal to younger players. The flip-top design makes rental maintenance easy and quick. Compared to .68 paint, .50 paint has lower cost, takes less storage space, and results in less paint to clean.
