Review: This is my first electric gun. This gun is great on any mode in any way.

THE MODES OF FIRE

Semi~ Semi automatic mode is a step above any other gun.a very light trigger push will fire it.This means 2 things
A)you can fire it very quickly
B)you'd better have on safety ALL the time while not in battle.
it works well and I found unless you have a fat index finger, You can push the little button without the trigger.Some times you can fire faster like that(but not comfortably)

3 round burst~ this is good if you want to save your paint but stay on some sorta auto.I like it but it shoots so fast it tends to leave you wanting more and if your inpatient you'll kill the paint your trying to conserve.

6 round burst~this is about the same as full auto with a cut off.It can be useful if you tend to hold the full auto too long.But if you don't you'll prefer full.

FuLl AuTo!.!~this just throws em! Its crazy how fast they go!This is my favorite setting. Be careful not to get trigger happy and eat up your ammo.

QUALITY
This is proof that even though something costs more doesn't mean its better quality.I've seen auto cockers and impulses and boy are they nice but they arent any better than the Icon-E.Not at all.this is top quality.Chrome parts and it only gets better from there.I repeat THIS DOES MATCH AUTOCOCKERS AND ALL THOSE PREPPY GUNS,IT REALLY DOES!

LOOKS
this gun looks awesome.You've gotta see it to believe it.the picture on the internet doesn't do it justice.I'll leave it at that.

RANGE
This gun shoots about average.It shoots it off fast though getting it a little more straight time before it plops to the ground.

SOUND
this gun is fairly quite.It can be heard from about 20 ft distinctly and possibly from 40 ft.However never fire a blank if your trying to keep quite.If you fire a blank it sounds like a real gun.if you run out off balls then fire.People can notice you and shoot you while you reload.

ACCURACY
I'm firing again and again in exact same spot holding it steady.
at
10ft=completely accurate all hit the same exact spot
20ft=almost completely they are all touching each other
30ft=a little but not much less than 20ft
40ft=most of them are touching mostly some are just higher
50ft=some touch same thing with height
60 and up=becomes slowly less accurate until max range.

.
Conclusion: This gun is great. It alone should put 32 degrees up there with kingman and all the other big name gun manufacturers.Buy this gun.

10 out of 10

come on if you dont know anything about paintball than just dont put down stuff you dont know, im critiscing you because you are pretty obvious, and i quote,(electric hopper not needed) its an electric gun, you need an electric hopper, duh. i put one on my tippmann, my tippmann, even though i play tournaments and shoot an ion, and some other choices as well such as DM3, autococker, impulse, shocker, they are not preppy, they work way better then you ICON LED, until you actually get the chance to shoot these guns than dont talk bad about them, please revise the review to not call them preppy, im not preppy, i just like to win, and prefer performance over a spyder clone with a cheap electonic frame with led board.----T

i'd like to see you out-shoot a karny with that cheap knock off of the spyder e-99 avant just because you save up to buy a good marker doesnt mean you preppy. it means you have nothing else to spend your paycheck on

Come on guys let the guy have his opinion on the matter. He is entitled his own opinion so if you don't like his review shut up and go to the next one.

You know what guys i think u should shut up and may b look at my review 2 c what i said... i did say a lot of really good things bout this gun BUT i do not think u are trying 2 start a FRICKIN GANG WAR with those expensive guns ok. Those angels better b good if u THROWING AWAY that kind of money when u can get a perfectly fine gun 4 10% of the cost. So i think u need 2 shut your mouths and keep using them expensive guns and i hope u spend the rest of ur life with them

Not all of us have the money to waste on 1000 dollar guns. I'm 13 and make 100 dollars
a week, but even I don't have the money to waste on those things. For 1000 dollars you better hope those things have a special accesory that gets you a girlfriend, cause I don't think you're getting one any other way.

I agree with the top three comments. I think your really new,or you don't know much about paintball. Because there is no way that gun can outplay a cocker,timmy.......etc.I also had a spyder e-99 before my cocker.the spyder and the icon look exactly the same,and have the same trigger frame.................It's true what people say....The more money you spend the better gun you will get. I just don't understand how you can think an icon can keep up with(preppy guns).

i also have to agree with the other comments. There is no way an icon can outshoot a timmy, cocker, shocker or other "Preppies". Make sure you do your homework next time you write a review.

Dispute:
I'm sorry, but I must dispute this. Sure, this is an awesome gun for the price and for what it is, but it is nowhere NEAR the quality and performance level of an Autococker or an Impulse. It is a low end blowback, around the level of a spyder, and autocockers are high end closed-bolt markers, which means that they get superior gas conservation and accuracy, have no kick and are extremely quiet. I should know, because I own a spyder Pilot and a cocker. :p Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is a bad gun, I'm just saying it's not as good as you make it out to be.
