Alright, heard about this one from a friend of mine who works down at Alamo City Paintball and just had to try it out. I have to say, after test firing it, I just had to have it. This gun is great. The white to blue fade is pretty good looking, and it also comes in solid black. It comes stock with a clamp feed neck, which means no more having to sand down hoppers to make them fit. The stock barrel is pretty good, with a little bit of a curve around 70ft which was fixed with some velocity adjustments. The easy to use LCD allows you to go from 4 to 20 bps in seconds, keeps track of how many balls you've shot, and even includes a timer. I also liked the addition of the break beam anti chop eye system. I have to tell you, even though you can turn it off, don't, cause there will never be a reason to, unless you want to chop. I tried it both on and off for 350 shots each setting, and out of that I only broke 3, all of which where when the eye was off and I outran my hopper. Also cleaning on the fly is a breeze, all you have to do is pull the pin in the bolt up, pull the bolt out, and then you can run a squeegee straight through from the back all the way through the barrel. The trigger is very sensitive, which is a plus, but has a slight side to side shake, along with a little recoil. But once you get used to the recoil it actually keeps you from even noticing the side to side shake and doesn't detract from the gameplay.
Overall, this gun is definetly a bargin for the price. I only paid $280 for mine, and "I'm loving it." This is a good upgrade for those rec ballers who feel the need to go entry-level tourny. May not be as fancy as an Autococker or shoot as fast as an Angel, but it gets the job done for minimal price.

Is this gun actually an electro because a friend of mine said it actually doesn't say that it is anywhere. I believe it is, I just want to make sure it's another blowback sear tripper being passed off as an electro.
since it has a break beam eye and an lcd i'm guessing its electronic, does anybody know how upgradeable this is going to be or is the SP ion where its at? i can't believe there are markers like this out now, i bought an eblade for the cocker i was building last year and it was more expensive than this, and the eblade's eye isn't even a break beam.
Hope I answered most of your questions up till now, I'm trying to get a digital camera from my friend so I can take a picture and post it. And as for this vs. the SP Ion I had the pleasure to try one before I bought this(as part of a promotional trial) and found that both are really good, solid built guns. My choosing the Wrath was only a matter of personal preference, mostly cause I liked the look of it better than the Ion. And don't let people tell you the Ion is cheap because the plastic on it, cause the gun is all aluminum with plastic over it for the look.
The wrath is fully electronic. It can take most of the upgrades a Timmy can take because it uses many timmy parts. It's stock reg. is a bob long reg. The threads are autococker. My local store owner has told me this is better then the Ion and the BKO.
quote:Originally posted by Kill_StompyDBI It comes with a rechargeable battery, right? Is that stock barrel a 14 inch? Would you recommend upgrading the barrel to a Boom-Stick or a All American?
No, comes with a regular 9V. The stock barrel is a 14 in. I can't make any recommendations on which barrel to upgrade to because I haven't used either as of yet. The stock on this one isn't the greatest, but it is enough to get you by for awhile
I second that. The only advantage the ion has is the spool valve design. The wrath is spring return, but can cycle just as fast. The wrath looks better, has an LCD screen, and is slightly faster and also slightly cheaper.
