Review: Even as a hard-core fan of the e-blade, I gave the system x frame a chance. Played a game with a demo at the field.
Needless to say... not impressed.
The frame cut out several times in the middle of play. Maybe just a loose wire, but reliability is a must. It definitely wasn't as fast as the eblade, IMO. The shop owner also told me the eye was picky about paint... even more so that the eblade (which doesn't like dark shells). From what I can tell, it just isn't reliable enough.
I know what some of you little guys are going to say... you can't do a proper test in one game. Well, so far it's 0 for 1 in my book, which aren't good odds. The other big problem is that they're just not around. Practically every dedicated paintball player has either played along side of or against an e-blade. I know very few folks who have so much as seen the System x frame at work. This was my first and I've been in this sport for quite a while. So where am I supposed get the gossip on the frame? The handful of people on this site?
Conclusion: Can't give it a 1, cause the thing works... but can't compare it to the e-blade. I suppose if you want a cheap knockoff, go ahead and get this frame. But why not just spend the extra $50 and get the real deal, or an extra $100 and get the real deal's newer better sibling, the E2.
