Review: I was very interested in an angled drop, so I bought this item at hogan's alley in CT at a horribly inflated price. I'm embarrassed to say how much. I tried it out today, right off the batt I realized that I had a hard time sighting down the out side of the marker. I have JT pro flex goggles so my head got right up behind my bolt, actually too close because it caught me in the mask.
The tank is at such an extreme angle that if you use a 68 or 88 the tank will be significantly above your marker. I did take a tank hit during the day, but I am a marked man when I walk on my local field (every one loves to try to shoot me).
I must say that I used to take hits on the drop foward today I receive none today but in turn that one tank hit.
No screws came with it which means stripping my old drop.

For my setup a Crossfire 70 cu LP stubby works perfectly. I have never used it on another marker, but you get used to it. You may want to attach the drop to the grip as far back as possible, this gives you a little more room from the back of the marker and the top of the tank.
Works best with a closed bolt, blow back markers (the bolt may catch your mask)
P.S. everyone at the field will want to shoot it.

P.P.S. This has no place on a tourny field, but rec is fine when you don't need to play as tight as possible, this will help with the wieght of rec ball guns.
Conclusion: I must say that by the end of the day I started to get used to the set up, but remember that I was playing rec ball (A little more forgiving that tourney play). I need to tweak the setup a little. I do not think that any product is perfect and that what 10 rating is, so don't expect it. Right now I will give this product a 7, but it is defiantly worth a look at, I imagine that the rating will improve after the tweaking is done.

At practice (playing speedball) I have not had a noticable amount of tank hits. The setup is nice for back players.

NOTE I like this setup but it is not for everyone. Very few products are perfect in this world, so 8 is very respectfull
REVISION
I no longer use this drop, I think it slows down my snap shooting

works great on my dm4 my teammate used it last tourny and loved it he had a 45/45.
