Default What make of shell, would you recommend

Hi all, im now thinking or ordering soon a new shell for my hyper 8.5
I currently have the Stock Hyper 8 shell-Custom done. And I have once had a Proline shell, but sold it as the Paint design was not my type lol.
But yea, Im wondering on what make of shell you guys run, I know its probally alot of personal prefrence but do you prefer like Proline, or Jconcepts.. ect As Im tempted to try the Jconcepts shell. But Ideall would like to see some better pics of the shape of the shell compared to the Proline one.

So hopefully you guys can give me some feedback, I know its probally not the best place to put the thread but hear people will reply unlike the Bodyshell section. Thanks in advance

And are there pro's and con's to the different shells
Cheers

Jamie Kerr

You've got a hijacker if you can't use google on your laptop try using this program:

Its free!

I just got a Pro-Line body because of the availability and past experience.

The strength of the bodies depend on the thickness of lexan they are made with. Check the specs of the body with the manufactur, Proline then J con.
My opinion on a buggy the body shouldnt take much abuse because of the wing and front shock tower, or keep it on its wheels LOL.

Yea, that is very true.. What would you say is the more popular.. Proline? As It would probally be my 1st Airbrush Shell. Which I hope to take serious and start doing shells for UK people. So I may end up selling it if I do..
