thinking of buying Tracer unit
 
All in all I am very curious to get one for the next game I will go to. I do play indoor exclusively for forseeble future which may change next year. The more important for me is to be able to use it indoor with normal lighting, specifically at Toronto Arenas(Siege or Ultimate airsoft).

At this point I have two tracer units in mind:
1. AceTech tracer: It is apparently very bright and can light up bbs to make them visible in normal room lighting

2. G&G MIT tracer: Aside from the obvious tracer function, it comes with shot counter and chrono which can be very handy. If it is as bright as AceTech I do not mind the price.

What do you guys and gals think? Which one should I go for?

Just bought a G&G myself recently, but not the MIT version.

Works well. I bought it just to see how it held up to the recoil of my GBBR's and it's holding surprisingly well.

Only downside is that it's a huge can. It's like 8 inches, and I predominantly play indoor as well and I can't see myself running an extra 8 in front of my rifle.

My PDW, maybe, but even on 10.5" barrel M4's or SCAR it's just too much up front for CQB (at least for me) to manipulate and negotiate without it smacking on the floor from primary to secondary, or even trying to aim/hide through windows/structures.

But overall, I'm happy with it and I would definitely run it outdoor at night.

They're fun.

They really let you view how a hopup works.

Have you shoot during the day or indoor lighting? Can you still see the bbs flying ?

Someone who has experience, how does the gen 2 TM tracer compare to the ACETEC one?

With indoor lighting like Siege, you can still see the bb fly, but not in the areas where it is more well lit.

Unless it's the dark of night or lights off, you're better off using a flashlight to track your bb's indoor if the lighting is better than dusk.

I have the Actech and a Gen1 TM.
Actech wins by a mile.

Using Bastards if it matters

There's also these types of tracer units if you don't want to extend the length of your gun, though I haven't used them myself.

Small sidetrack, what's the current ruling on importing mock suppressors and tracer units into Canada?

barrel mounts give the brightest bbs. The other closest thing I have seen is custome made HUTU that has multiple blue LED installed. The problem being, I run mosfet thus I cannot tap into the main battery :(

I would rather have a dedicated battery anyways, I don't like the idea of my battery constantly draining while it's plugged in. I would store a 9v or small lipo battery in the handgaurd and a pressure switch on the rails.

I read and heard that better option is Actech, but that is my opinion
