Recommended
Upgrades:
Well the only thing I can think of for mine is a Empire Re-Loader B with Rip Drive upgrade. Because this gun can be get pretty fast at various settings.
Strengths: Speed, accuracy, smoothness, and great looking for price.
Weaknesses: I really haven't found one yet.
Review: So what can I say this gun speaks for itself. And being able to put more paint through it with the low pressure setup it has is very nice. Specially since a lot of the local fields don't know how to top off a tank. Oh yeah don't forget the vertical feed. I know a couple of people back on the review some one bad mouthed the feed. I think it's a great feature to have. It has a screw tight locking feed neck. Which if that guy was have trouble well then he must not have a lot of strength to make sure he's tighten it correctly. What else... Oh yeah, the electronics on this gun really is what makes it possibly one of the greats. The electronics on this gun is so smooth it almost to good to be true. From the WAS board to the specialty anti-chop i-beams.

Wicked Air Sportz Board - WAS
Break Beam Eyes - WAS
Double Ball Bearing Adjustable Trigger - For Greasy Speed
Smaller trigger frame than similar guns
Larger trigger guard design so you can easily walk even with Large Gorilla Fingers
LPR Operating Pressure 60psi - MORE SHOTS
Balls Per-Second come stock 25BPS - Can shoot up to 30BPS
LED Board - No more Confusion - Ready to rock
Shorter Delrin Bolt - Lighter and Faster
New Design - Sticky Grips
*Locking vertical feed*

After reading this following message on Brady's Paintball and talking to their tech guys I was hooked on this gun. And so far there is nothing that would change my mind about it.

***The NME was designed around the Intimidator/Spyder/Impulse/etc. concept. The stroke was reduced from the normal 1.045" (Intimidator) to just .82". This means at the exact same rate of fire, the bolt moves 21.53% less distance EACH WAY! Why is this important? Because this means that there is more time for a ball to fall into the breech, resulting in a substantially faster rate of fire when using a gravity-feed type of hopper. This means that an Intimidator shooting shooting 10bps for 10 seconds will have the bolt move a distance of 209 inches (17.41 feet). The NME's bolt shooting at the same 10bps for 10 seconds would travel 164 inches (13.66 feet). That is 3.74 fewer feet of travel!

We took the changes that were recommended to Bob Long by our company and applied them to the NME. A second generation "WAS board" (Equalizer) was also created for this marker. It's light, it's fast, it's efficient, and its powered by the best paintball electronics in the world!

Well I thank you for comments. I hope to not sound mean on this comment. I don't think you can read. I never said vertical feeds are new there big guy. I made a comment about a previous post about this gun. A guy made a bad comment about the twist lock vertical feed not gripping to his hopper. Here's a quote from carlisle9 --"The only problem I had was with the feed neck, with the hopper not securing very tight. Not sure where this problem originates, but the only upgrade I can think of would be a new clamping feed neck." And because of that I want to stress to other people that the vertical that the NME has is a "Locking Vertical Feed", so what this guy wrote is crap. Because else your a complete idiot like you who can not read or comprehand things. The "Locking Vertical Feed" will grip the hopper if you know what the hell you are doing. So before you try to sound mean, "please", sound smart about what you're about to say. Because hell I have owned both the grandfather side feeds, and several vertical feeds, gee well let me think, before this gun, gosh!

Can you explain how this allows more time for a paintball to load? I understand that you can use a longer dwell and still get the same rof with shorter stroke, but still, that can't really effect paint loadering except at lower rof's, where it doesn't matter anywhere near as much...
