Oue boy Novi has done it again....... *Sigh......*

Looks like Novi has posted another video to get himself on a watchlist! Anybody else get the "I snuggled a gun on an airplane!" video in their recommended over at YouTube? Man, I haven't even seen it all....

Ahh crap, that didn't sound right. I meant to say "smuggled."

Anyway this might be a good time to ask: Are there any non-cringe airsoft sniper YouTubers?
Bodgeups was probably one of my favorites, RIP
Hunteering is awesome, but a bit far from what I'd simply consider 'entertainment'
Bull Sniper is pretty good, but uploads seem to be getting more rare
House Gamers is alright, but geared for a younger crowd- and at best, he panders, at worst, you could call it selling-out
Cleanshot is becoming a mix of Novritsch / Kicking Mustang
Novritsch and Kicking Mustang...well...where to begin? Haha

I think your analysis is pretty bang on of the Youtubers.

Mustang is probably the least cringey to me, but he seems to have a lot of entitlement issues based on the rumors around the net and how he acts when he doesn't get his way with certain airsoft fields.

My feeling on this new video is the same as the last one... who cares? Don't like it? Don't watch. It will literally effect nothing with the sport or firearms in general.

I personally like brainexploder's channel in general. Lately hasn't been much sniper content, but his [older] videos tended to focus more on the technical side of things which was very neat to see. Going from build to field and taking the viewer along the journey was pretty unique.

Airsoft and cringy go hand it hand when it comes to Youtube, regardless of what platform they are running.

Throwing AirsoftCamMan's name into the hat.. He doesn't always do sniper videos, but his camerawork is the best I've seen in airsoft, without being 'that guy' like Novboi. I'm glad I'm not the only one who had problems with Kicking Mustang though.


Edit:
I also hold him over Novboi because a year ago, AirsotCamMan posted a video featuring a REALLY cool 360 camera and made it work. Two weeks later, Novboi posted a "BRAND NEW CAMERA IDEA, NEVER BEFORE SEEN IN AIRSOFT" featuring a 360 camera. And he did a TERRIBLE job with it.


At least credit the guy so they can go see what you were trying to copy.

Awwwww crap. Just as I leave the forum I find this:

And it's 95 USD...... What happened to the good old days of getting off school.for the weekend and watching a fun old Novritsch video, pretending you're the one taking those shots (all of course before you have the funds or knowledge to do so :)). The guys just a marketer now, and whatever attracts YouTube trolls, he'll be sure to post.....

Airsoft celebrities do whatever they can to get attention and views on social media.

It's our job to convince others that what they do is dumb and shouldn't be emulated. And that most of them celebrities are only a bunch of idiots..

As far as sniper channels, the one who always fascinated me was caferacing, back then he was one, if not the best sniper related airsoft channel..
Just look at his latest scope cam system, then look at when it was made compared to what people use now.
Fucking genius really. Technology has made progress yet nobody uses such systems, instead people buy the latest cam (100% identical to the previous version from 25 years before) just because X person uses it.

On that ghillie, he hasn't invented anything new, Crye came out with that model ages ago.

I'm blocked from Youtube right now, what setup is he using for his scopecam? I haven't seen one of his videos in years, but I remember he was one of the original scopecam guys out there

He bodged together a mount using a beam splitter and a gopro which was facing downward, so that the camera recorded what you could actually see in the scope, no need to put stupid crosshairs, shows sniper shots for what they really are.

With today's technology (3D printers) you can easily create something sturdy and light to emulate it, yet nobody attempted anything similar. He literally invented the true scope cam.

I'll try to sauce some images

Totally forgot about that! I'd seen that setup and really wanted to try it- will need to keep that in mind.
Caferacing was always good. The throw-back reminds me of I think the first scope-cam airsoft videos I ever saw, from Vavann- another great channel that's no longer active.

True! He was one of the first scope cammers 😛

Also, from him, his rifle ghillie. In a time where people only painted their rifles, he came up with pvc piping to not ruin the "brand new" looks. Absolute genius.

He's evidently done this multiple times. Prior to this it was SC Ghillie in Poland (I have one of their boonie hats - GREAT piece of kit). His ghillie shirt is a cheap chinese copy of one of their designs.

It's likely a matter of time before he copies the DTD holster he's selling in China and reproduces it with cheaper materials.

I mean this shouldn't shock anyone. Every one of his products is a knockoff or reproduction of an already existing product. You know that going in, or at least you should. I'm not trying to defend the guy, as I think the way he's screwing some of these companies is shitty, but it's been his modus operandi since his business' inception.

I own a few of his products, and in my experience the non repro stuff (like DTD Mk23 Holster, or his scope which is a rebrand and not a repro) is good, where as the repro stuff (like his SSP1 slide) is trash.
