Review: Well, I was about to buy a black Trix, when my mom found out that somebody I know was selling his FF impy for cheap to get his new Ripper Timmy. He had hardly used it (like once or twice), and was only asking 450$ for it, making it impossible to turn down. Being christmas, I convinced my parents to pay the rest of the fee, since I didn;t have 450$ on me at the time. 10 minutes after I bought it, my friend calls and asks me to go paintballing, randomly. He had no idea that I had even got the marker; crazy huh? I was angry because the field's speed was only 240fps, and bunkering wasn't allowed, but I enjoyed it anyways. At the chrono, it seemed very inconsistant (went from 200-240fps) so I figured something was wrong. On the field, it was deadly accurate, so I can only assume the chrono was messed up. I was firing insane speeds, maxing the Vision board out, and my first game with it I eliminated the entire team. I was so used to a mech, and excited (and I had a bawls shortly before) that i bonus-balled often, and had to limit myself. Some people say that impy's are gas-hogs, but they are mistaken by a common myth. I filled it to 4500, and shot 400 rounds before letting my friend use it, who forgot to air it and shot 300 through it. It was still barely under 2000psi. Nice, huh? The only complaint I have about it was that everyone wanted to use it. I used it less than the other people at the field! I have no complaints; this is definately a crazy marker suitable for anyone who doesn't like coming over the top of their bunker (impys have tall profile). The magnetic trigger is amazing. It has absolutely no bounce, and I have an incredibly small pull on it. People were convinced I shot so fast with bounce, but they fired it and tested, finding no bounce at all. Well, the only upgrades I'll need now are a Halo B, and a WAS board to keep up with my fingers!
Conclusion: On the car-ride back, I asked my friend to rate my gun on a scale of 1-10. He would know best, he put 1500 rounds through it that day. He said "9/10". I asked "why 9 instead of 10?" because I wanted to know what to upgrade. He replied, "Because it isn't mine!"
Rating:
10 out of 10
