Review: The Paradox paintball marker was the first marker that I have ever owned. The marker is a typical spyder clone marker, it's perfect for starters to use since it's plain an simple to use. The paradox does not come with a expansion chamber which is a major problem. With a 20 oz Co2 tank, i was along able to get about 500 shots out of the marker, which is a huge bus kill since I had to get my tank refill one after another. The velocity was simple to adjust since there was a knob that can be adjust by hand. However, the quality of the marker will not last. After about 3 months of usage, the set screws that hold the frame on the body begins to loosen. Causing the trigger frame to become unsteady and eventually fall out of place. The tapeing inside of the screw set has wasted and i couldn't do anything about unless going to a shop to retape another set screw hole. A new bolt is a must because the stock one is very heavy.
Conclusion: In conclusion, the Paradox marker is a great marker for starters. It's a typical spyder clone for a cheaper price.
