Products Used:
None really.
Marker Setup: Limited edition blue gloss DM4 with the '04 NXL board.
2005 ICD Freestyle with a prodigy trigger and a Dye sticky grip.
All of the Dye C5 gear, Empire Reloader B, and a throttle tank.
A new reg.
Strengths: Light, fast, easily upgradable, sexy.
Weaknesses: Gas hog, feed neck lets hopper spin, stock trigger.
Review: When I got this gun I immediately shot about 7 balls through it to make sure it worked. It shot great. I didn't like the feel of the stock trigger. It's uncomfortable to walk on. This is an easily solved problem. Buy the prodigy trigger and take the spring out. It shot so amazingly well as soon as I slapped that baby on. I also put on the Dye '05 sticky grip. That gives it a really good feel. The stock grip is crap.
I took it out to the feel about 3 days later for some actual play. I filled my 4500 tank to 3000 (that's the only guage they have available) and brought it onto the field. The beginning of the game went great. The only problem was, my hopper stopped spinning. Guess what. I was shooting to fast. I turned it all the way up and it was shooting unbelieveably well. Even at 237 FPS it still shot straight. I shot about 8 guys on the other team then the gun started to shoot low. I looked at my guage and it was at 1000. The biggest problem with this gun is that it's a total gas hog. I asked if I could use the private fill station and filled it up to 4000 this time. I went out and it was enough for the entire game. One thing that isn't really a big problem but it bothers me, is that the feedneck lets the hopper spin. The hopper won't come out unless you really pull on it, but it spins. Not a big deal unless you play snake. I just suggest getting a Dye no-rise. Same height and it will hold your hopper in place.
Conclusion: This is an amazing gun. Just play with a big tank. Get a prodigy trigger, a sticky grip, and a no-rise and you'll be set.
