Strengths: 1.Speed and weight.
2.Ease of Use and field strippable.
Weaknesses: 1.Grips are fugly.
2.Gas hog.
Review: OK, for quite some time I have been deciding between getting a Freestyle or a Shocker. I was using a very nice Emag and didn't really want to give it up, but I wanted to try newer things. The reason I decided to go with the FS-7 are several:

1.It has breakbeam eyes, not reflective.
2.It seems to have a better track record for not breaking down.
3.It comes stock with a very nice board from Tag Sportz.
4. And it just looks a little sexier than a stock bodied Shocker.
5. Quik strip capability.
After getting the marker from the store I quickly noticed a few things. It is slightly heavier and larger than the previous Freestyles, and it has a different milling/anno pattern. The body is almost remenicient of a DM4, but I really like it. The milling and anno are very high quality and look pretty good, mine is a matte red to black fade. When I finally got a chance to air it up and shoot it I was very very happy. I am not very fast on new guns but I was able to empty a pod with ease and decent accuaracy, and this was with the stock settings. The only thing that kinda scared me is that I started with 2000 psi in my tank and after shooting a Halo and dry firing around 100 times I was out of air!!! Ouch.
Now after a few days of tinkering and getting the settings where I want them I can tell you that this thing is very fast. It has nice consistent chrono readings and performs nicely. Another very nice feature is the very adjustable board; after having my Emag this thing is like being in a candy store. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a very fast, accurate, and high quality marker than check this out. See if you can't fire one at your local store. I have been very happy with mine and everyone I know has been happy with their ICD markers. This gun may not be for everyone but I have been pleased with it.

Gas efficiency is especially horrible when you dry fire the gun alot. Atleast that's what i've experienced.
