Products Used:
I've tested an angel and a DM4 IMO the OMen competed well with them. I owned an auotmag for years, the omen blows it away.
Marker Setup: I have a stock Evil Omen.

Upgrades:
none really. An adjustable bore barrel like the pipe or the freak would be nice, but the gun shoots great without it, and you might want a drop forward.
Strengths: See below.
Weaknesses: See below.
Review: My First Time Omen Story...
I got my Omen about two weeks before the tournament and I thought that I would have time to get everything working and figured out before that, but...
The local field hadn't got set up for HPA yet, and all I was getting was promises of "just another day or two". Well I didn't want to use CO2 so I decided to wait. It drug on and on, and it turned out he wasn't going to get air until the day before the tournament. We I was out of town that day so I had no choice but to wait until the moring of the tournament to fire my Omen for the first time.

Due to a lot of people on this forum who seemed to have problems with their Omen right at first, I was really worried about this.
Well Tournament day arrived, and I came early to have some time with my gun. It turned out that the field was not able to get air, and they had worked it out with another field to supply air for them, but they weren't there yet. So it did me no good to come early.

Air finaly got there. I had worked it out with a buddy of mine to use his Nitro tank, and I took it over to get it filled. Guess what! The regulator on the Tank was shot and it was leaking bad.

"I'm screwed" I thought. My mind starts racing with all the posible problems with CO2 (like loosing recock pressure with rapid fire due to bottle temperature drop.) but I had no choice so I went to the chrono with my anti-siphon tank, and hoped for the best.

I tuned up the Omen according to the manual, and practice fired it a few times. (first time mind you.) This gun was incredible. It really ripped.

I was still bummed about the CO2, but after our first game I was over it because we blew out another team who had two DM4's and a Timmy. (I had two of the three eliminations)

Later in the day I was able to get a Nitro tank to play with, and I got to tell you.... it was great! Keep in mind the gun was already performing very well on CO2, but then when I went to air it was like night and day. So much better if that was even possible.

For the day: No breaks... No problems.... recocked reliably. shot accurately. We got second for the day. I was in heaven.

Thanks Evil... I couldn't ask for a better Marker for my money.

Strengths:
Rate of fire, Accuracy, excellent parts (it comes with a lot of parts that would have to be purchased as upgrades for other guns such as the Evil Detonator Regulator, the Evil Driver Barrel, the Veturi Derilin Bolt, and the on/ off bottom line), if you follow the tuning instructions in the manual you will NEVER chop paint.

Weaknesses:
The recock pressure has to be set every time you use the Marker, and it is a several step process. You MUST, MUST, MUST follow the instructions in the manual for tuning, or you WILL break a cup seal or a hammer, or break paint, but if you take care to do it right your experience will be very positive.
Conclusion: This gun is an incredible bargin. It's already priced lower than guns such as the impulse, and you don't need to upgrade a thing to make it perform well. You will not be ashamed to show this gun off to your rich buddies with the DM4's and the timmy's. I'm completely happy. Oh, and FYI the Evil forums at www.pbnation.com are very helpful.

"bbwolf25," I am so happy for you! Like me, you worry about your equipment, and you care for it well. I worry about my gun, and I have a Tippmann 98 Custom (with a lot of upgrades)! Well, I am glad to hear that your maker is shooting flawlessly! Have a great time paintballing, and play safe!

There is no "best" electronic hopper for any gun. A gun like the Evil "Omen" can probably fire around 10 balls per second, so I'd get a Viewloader 12 volt "Revolution" loader, or a Viewloader "Evlution 2" loader for the "Omen".
