Review: The first thing you notice when you take this marker out of the box is how sleek and nice it looks. Though it looks nice, you also soon realize that you can buy each and every part separately. It seems that the factory just took all of their nicest (non-electro) parts, put them together, and called it a ULE Custom. If you were to add up all the different parts sold by the company independently, it would cost much more than simply purchasing the already put-together gun. The ULE Custom performs exceptionally well once on the field. It has extremely low fps fluctuation. Also, the Level 10 system, along with the X valve, makes it literally impossible to break a ball inside the gun. However, the gas consumption on this gun is, in my opinion, below average. In my 70ci tank, I get around 1000 shots from a complete fill. Another downside to this gun is that the trigger pull, even with the ULT kit, seems a little too long. The gun actually fires with very little pull, but there is a lot of room left (after the shot) for the trigger to travel before it hits the trigger frame and is blown back. I believe this can be finished by going to a local paintball shop and asking them to install a small "trigger stop" between the trigger and the trigger frame.
Conclusion: This is an amazing marker. It performs extremely well and you simply cannot beat the price. Though it may have a few minor drawbacks, the strengths far out way them. I would recommend this gun to anyone who is tired of all the new "amazing 65 bps electro" guns and just wants to enjoy paintball the way it was meant to be played. Remember, this sport is about having fun. In conclusion, this gun is well suited for just about any player wishing to make an investment in the high-end category.

1300 rounds out of a 70/4500 is amazing gas efficency dude, the normal shot count from that size of tank is about 1050 shots.
