Just got my Tac-One this week and just got the HPA today. As of right now I have no field experence with this marker. I bought just the marker with ULE, hoses and shipping for $487. Plus another $221 for a 68/4500 HPA tank. I figure one big investment now and I wont have to buy another paintball marker for years.
This marker was able to shoot paintballs in the same exact spot 30 yards away, no problems once I learned how it shoots. Unlike my Victor 2, the paintballs go in a streight line, they don't go up then down again.
I went threw a hopper of paint and not one break or misfire, so I didn't see how the level 10 bolt worked. I was able to shoot a long string of paint extreamly fast.
Edit 2/28: I played for the first time with it last weekend. Over that time I discovered 2 problems with the marker. 1. The ASA was leaking, the place where I put the tank into the marker. I was told to drop an O ring in it and that fixed that problem. 2. When I turned down the FPS (was shooting 320+) the bolt was sticking and sometimes seemed to leak air out of the barrel. I researched this problem on the AGD forum and saw that I needed to put the next biggest gage in the Level-10 bolt. It took me about 30 mins to figure it out and get it working again, but when I did it worked great. I just about had 2 chops, but it just went 'phut' and a ball rolled out the end of the barrel, I just went back to shooting without any problems. Not one broken ball out the end of the stock barrel either and I went threw a box durring my play plus another box when I was messing around with it prior. Now that I worked the bugs out the Tac-One is everything I thought it would be, and I wouldn't want anything else.
EDIT 4/24: Been playing with my tac-one for a while now, more than 10,000 paintballs used and not one chop, even useing some crappy field paint. I let a speedballer try my marker in speed vs. a shocker and the Tac-One kept up (I'm not that fast on the trigger). Very fast, the advanced speedballers were very impressed. It's also held up well in the woods including one game is some light rain. It's been dropped once, dragged threw underbrush, hit on bunkers and tree's and even shot a couple times and it's always held up with no downtime, just pull the trigger and it works. Durring one game it was shooting two or three balls every trigger pull, come to find out I had the ball dent off because I cleaned it the night before. Still, it worked fine. Also I'd like to note how easy it is to clean, take out one screw and the entire bolt assembly comes out and you can see threw the marker, just run a squeege threw it a couple times and it's clean, drop some oil in the ASA and dry fire it and it's oiled.
Also I borrowed a friends hammerhead barrel and it worked better than the stock, not reviewing the barrel here, just saying this one thing.
From what I have seen I like it a lot. If I find any problems with it I will edit this post and move the rating down, until then it meets my every expectation.
While I can't recomend that everyone should get one, I do like the one I have as of right now.
EDIT 4/24: As of right now I'm wishing I could post an 11 rating. This is a great marker if I'm playing speedball, or woodsball. It can shoot one shot very accuritly or a nice stream if in trouble. As of yet I have had absolutly no problems with this marker (after the original tinkering). If I ever come across any I will post them.
10 out of 10
