Review: Before I get into my review, I want to say that when the Angel LCD is working, it's an incredible gun. It shoots darts, you can rip out a sick amount of ammo with it, and hit exactly what you aim for. The first year I owned this gun I loved it.

The problem I've had with my gun is the charging system. I have had 5 charging problems since I purchased the gun, all starting about a year after owning it. The warranty on these gun is garbage, you are on your own.

I have sent my gun back to angelparts.com on 3 seperate occasions. I have compiled a arsenal of batteries, charges and boards that have all failed. I have 2 boards at $75 each plus installation and shipping, 4 batteries at $50 each plus installation and shipping, and 2 chargers at $40 each plus shipping.

I wish they made a simple 9V conversion kit for this gun. The charging system is garbage and will haunt you for the life of this gun. WDP sucks when it comes to fixing your gun. You have to mail it to service centers like angelparts.com, who take a month to return your gun and charge you at least $130 each trip for shipping, parts and labor.
Conclusion: When I went to the Tampa NPPL Super 7 in May, I went to the WDP tent to see if someone could help me. Sure, they had plenty of strippers walking around in sexy shorts and tops, but no one was interested in helping me out. I even went to the repair tent and all 5 of the techs sitting there told me to go to hell.

It made me really feel like sh*t for buying their product. I was even debating buying a new A4 Fly, but when they treated me like that and ran me around, I put my angel back in the duffel bag, walked over to the WGP booth and dropped $1500 on a new Karnivore, WGP 70ci/4500 Peanut Tank, and clear zboard viewloader. I was litterally 2 minutes from buying a $1400 Fly until they jerked me around.

They could have cared less about me or my 2002 Angel LCD. I asked where I could get it repaired, and they told me "same place that has been fixing it all along, next!"

Thanks to the WDP folks at the Tampa NPPL Super 7 for turning me on to a new Karnivore with a lifetime warranty. Sure, WDP advertises with tons of sex and women, but all that a$$ doesnt do you any good when you are at home trying to get your marker to work. No wonder countless teams are dropping this company

I chose a Karnivor over an angel or Timmy as my primary too.

although i am getting an old 01 C+C angel lcd soon as a toy to tinker with.

Actually I've seen an Angel Fly vs a WGP Karnivor. The Karnivor outshot the Angel Fly. Thats why the guy uses it during open play every weekend and during tournaments. Granted an Angel Fly is nice, but the Karnivor is a better speed marker and accuracy marker. Ive shot the karnivor, Ive yet too shoot the Angel Fly. Ive seen both shot by the same person.
