Review: Well got sponsored by System X a few weeks ago. But first off let me start with this. Before this gun I had a Pewter Dark Shocker with the Red High Efficiency kit and the Nasty Trigger with the Evil Pipe kit and a Speedy 2 board. This gun was a beast. But I decided to give the NME L.E. a try just so if I had anything bad to say it would be because I actually shot one. Now that I have it, I cant say anything bad. I took the gun out the box and read the manual front to back. This is a must if your not used to dealing with guns like Timmys (being as this is basically a timmy clone). They really arnt kidding when they say to lube things every 2000 shots and the reg at 4000. You may find this to be a hassle but its well worth it being as it gives you a very good feel for your gun. The bolt is pretty nice, I especially liked the pin-lock system. Unlike my Impulses, I cant pull the pin out of the bolt completely and drop it and then be forced to remove any dirt at the field. I'll explain just how use-full that feature was in a moment. The different settings the W.A.S. board allows you to tweak are sweet. It lets you make your gun do what ever you want it to do just about. It can be either true semi, tournament style (for just about every different tournament) or so freakin fast you will have no control over bonus balling people. The accuracy is perfect. It doesnt matter if your taking slow, steady shots down a tape-line or if your drowning a bunker... its a steady line of paint. I have found that cheap paint isnt very favored by the gun simply because of it being cheap as far as how well-rounded the shell is. But it shoots paint such as Rampage and Competitive Edge fine. I have found Blaze Field Paint to work perfect so far. Evil also works without any problems.

Now, I played in a PEVS PTS tournament today in VA. I had a broken ball in one of my pods and didnt see it untill it was aready in the chamber of the gun so I was forced to shoot it. I wasnt sure how the gun would react to broken paint but it still shoots pretty consistant as far as accuracy goes. The best part was I was able to quickly pull up the pin of the bolt, remove the bolt, whipe it on my jersey, and replace it and continue playing in only a few seconds. This ability to clean the bolt decently enough to continue play was a game-saver. I personally use a Dye Throttle Tank (68/45). The recharge rate on the tank is great for the gun and its low-pressure. It costs me about 400 psi per dye lock-lid which is REALLY nice.

Now the looks are perfect. Cant beat them. I have the black with the red accents. It turns head real quick, believe me. Especially being as they are rather new guns on the market. People compare the NME L.E. to a timmy being as its alot like it. But I have played with an Alias a couple times in the past (longer than I have played with this gun) and already I can tell the differences. The NME is just that nice, its whisper quiet which allows for easy shooting from the 50 without being noticed untill about 20 shots later.

I HIGHLY recommend this gun. People say it is heavy but once you bring the gun up to a shooting position the balance completely eliminates the weight. Besides its 2.2 lbs if I remember correctly. Thats not all THAT heavy. Sure, its heavier than a DM5 and alot of other guns, but none are as sweet as the L.E.
Conclusion: So far it is the greatest paintball gun I have ever used in my life.

what guns would you compar this too

teamxtreme1 Tuesday, February 7th, 2006 | 6:15 pm PST
probably a low end timmy maybe a defiant or 2k5, stock shocker but heavier, and maybe a angel. but the angel in my opnion is better look what you get!! same weight, faster, accuracy is the same, more consistant, and finally it a hell of a lot cheaper!!!!!!!

teamxtreme1 Tuesday, February 7th, 2006 | 6:18 pm PST

As i remember it dye throttle tanks have been prone to having one of the worst recharge rates, at 170 ms, Crossfire tanks have a recharge rate of 11 ms, big difference but thats just what ive seen and read.

Shockers are gas hogs, theyre not as good, this is a timmie so i dont see any comparison there i perosnally own a karnivor and the nme has less kick and can cycle faster, comparing a matrix to this is kinda warped, considering you can get these for 45-550 brand new and proto/dye matrices are 700 and up so youre arguement has alot of holes.

You submit a resume of yourself and all your team members, you include history of the team and each players acomplishments, the gear of each current player and various info like that, you cn check system-x's website they usually have a link where you can get sponsor info.
