light trigger(or snappy, your choice)
no chops(lvl 10 bolt)
low maintenance(oil it every few cases)
takes some work to get it set up and tuned
doesnt come w/ a bottomline
Ok, today was the first day that i used my marker, although ive had it for a few months now. i had dry-fired arond 2000 shots through it before playing(weeks before) and knew what to do with the lvl 10 bolt(tuning etc.) I got to the field and was shooting hot, so i turned it down. with 800-850 psi direct input, the bolt started firing consistantly right at 275 fps(red spring). i ran 3/4 of a case through my marker, three different types of paint. draxxus blaze, white box mercenary, and stingers. all cheap paint and all were shooting w/ no problems(and straight). I was expecting to get around 500-600 shots off of my 68/45 filled to 3000 but it proved me wrong and was getting around 800 shots before the pressure dropped below 800 and stopped shooting. not great consistency, but i was expecting worse, and its not too bad. firing this marker... heres the great part. Beforehand, i spent close to two hours tweaking the trigger magnets, putting spacers(got my trigger to shoot if i blow hard on it) and adjusted the pull so that in electric mode, it shoots about 1.5mm from where it rests, and then stops. it makes it extremely easy to walk because all you have to do is move your fingers half a centimeter and really fast. I played the first two games in mech mode, and was quite impressed with the reactivity and control i had on the trigger. i wasnt fanning the trigger, but if i was trying, i could probably have shot it close to 8 or 9 bps. I enjoyed the feel of the reactive mech trigger, and loved the speed of e-mode. on a side note, the Xcel barrel that came with my gun shot very well, and shot through breaks within 6 shots or so(i kept forgetting to turn e-mode off when the game was over and shot into my barrel condom) I didnt try hybrid mode, but when i was dry-firing my marker, i was impressed. if i can adjust my sear so that the reactivity is spread to the trigger sooner(hard to explain, sear gets puller, sear pushes back and pushes trigger back) it would be possible to rapidfire the trigger extremely easy(but illegally, only used for showing little kiddies what my marker can do :-P) I didnt use hybrid mode because it is slower than e-mode, and isnt as comfortable as mech mode, but i will probably test it out next time.
i rate it a 10, because i love this product. It is a little expensive for what you get. I got mine when AGD was having a sale for $200 off. for the price, you can get almost any other marker, but if it is what you want, then it is a great marker.
