Review: I purchased this drop after seeing that I wasnt a fan of the way my on/off sat on my Lightning Drop by CP. I was in the market for a new one and came across a recommendation online claiming that "the FBM Stiletto is the best drop on the market."

Having no idea what the Stiletto was, I looked up some reviews on it and some basic info on what made it so special and different from other drops. The look of it is cool right off the bat. It can give you gun a very sharp, unique look, seeing as I've never seen any of them around except on my gun.

The functionality of the drop was the real selling point for me. I'm a rather tall (6-2), lanky (185 lbs) player and tend to have a body part sticking out and get pegged there during games. Foot, calf, elbow, you name it. However, I had noticed that since adding the Lightning drop, I had been gettin tagged in the elbow more often. The Stiletto appeared to stop this from the reviews I read. Since adding it, I have yet to get hit in the elbow and can almost hide my entire arm behind my marker. Even turning my wrist to walk to the trigger doesn't crank up my wrist as much anymore. Also, the kick is easier to control on my blowback because I can pin my gun very snug against my shoulder.

It definitely gave me an easier time walking the trigger, and coupled with my Boss Blade have made my gun very easy to cap out the board. After adding those two pieces, I'm very excited to see what this is like with the T-Board.
Conclusion: If you use drops, and are looking to get a new one, looking to be different, or try a new idea, then definitely give the Stiletto a try. You won't be disappointed.

Right now, you can buy the Stiletto/ASA combo for 44 bucks and save about 20 by buying them together.
