Review: I'm going to come out an say it right now this is one of the best guns I have ever used. I own a Rebel 02 BL, and have tested many other guns, but this one...oh lord *drools* This gun just kicks ass. I gave it a Demon 16" Sniper barrel, and I modefied the sight rail and put a hunting laser (found it at Wal-mart for $18) and it kicks ass now. Especially in senario games and night games, hence the laser upgrade ;)
But as soon as I opened the box, I took it out and tried it, and it was just incredible.

Its true that the drop foward and trigger frame come loose sometimes, but every gun does that. Also the ball curves at long distances, again, every gun does it. But of all guns I've gotten a chance to play with, this one has the least amount of ball drop. How much less you ask? I got a head shot from 80 feet away. Sure I had to "mortar" the balls into the target, but not by much, in fact they went straight most of the way.

There is no need to buy dumbnut $1,500 auto-wankers when you can buy a gun like this, spend $50 to upgrade it, and have it rival auto's. All my friends have $200+ guns, and when we play, my Icon Z is the only gun that doesn't break on-field.

Great gun for anyone, and because its so much more durable than $200+ guns, you can cap noobs with too much money to spend ;)

P.S.- Oh wait, its not their money, its their parents'! HAHAHAHAHAHA......suckers....
Conclusion: Great gun, perfect for rec and senario play. Great for speedball once you get it a couple electronic parts.

Who wants to bet that if we gave him $1500 to spend on paintball tomorrow he'd have a Timmy by Monday?

Maybe not a "Timmy", but maybe a SIM-15 from Ariakon (costs $260, pretty awsome gun), then I'd take whats left, finish upgrading the Icon Z. Then after all that is done, I'd save the money :)

For three years of paintball experience, u sure talk a whole lot of stuff for the gun you use. and 2 extra pods does not count as "marker setup"
