Review: ok folks here we go
SPEED: this thing is fast! the trigger and guard work together very well to encourage high rates of fire. i'm not that fast but with the stock board, (no flipped switch) i can easily reach 15+ bps. quick note about the feedneck. it's designed for a halo neck. if you put a revi or an evo on it, you need to wrap it with tape one time.
BEAUTY: this marker is a work of art, i've had it for over 6 months and sometimes i still sit there and just stare at it. everyone who has seen it, dm4 owners, angel owners, timmy owners, all of them agreed it was beautiful.
MAINTENANCE: come on, it's ONE TUBE! you can have it completely disassembled in about a minute thirty. can't say that about any other high end gun i know. pop everything out, inspect the o-rings, clean it off, lube it up, and put it all back together.
ACCURACY: when you have a reg that can keep up with a good recharge rate and a tank that can supply the air you will shoot ropes of paint with this gun. it's very easy for your body to learn how to aim the marker, what i mean is, there is no conscious aiming. you can do instinctual point and shoot and be right on target. many times i have ran full speed downfield and fired a single paintball at an opponent cross field and watched it break on goggles or center mass.
SIZE: this marker is so tiny. my friend has told me he can't even tell when i stick my shocker out from behind the bunker, the only time he knows is when he sees paint coming.
GAS USAGE: really only a problem for those who have to pay for each fill or back men in tournaments, but i say, better safe than sorry. the average balls shot for a 68/45 tank i found through my "extensive" research into forums is around 650-900 for the stock bolt and 1250-1400 for one of the HE bolts available. right now there are about 4 bolts available but because of the milling of the dark shocker you can't use a couple of them. I would recommend the SP turbo charger bolt, around $95 ( i know it hurts)

REFLECTIVE EYE: this is cause i'm lazy and now i have to look at the color of paint before i buy it. i got spoiled by my timmy's eye. if you have bright paint there will be ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS, but if you use dark shell paint, you'll probably have to turn the eyes off.
Conclusion: i absolutely love this gun. the weaknesses i posted are there because they aren't perfect. the gas usage isn't going to kill you unless you pay for every fill or shoot ridiculous amounts of paint. and the reflective eye is cause i'm lazy.
bottom line? FAST, SMALL, SEXY, AND CONSISTENT(when mini reg is clean)
