Review: I bought my Gen2 Freestyle Last summer, i left it mostly stock for that season, and it fared me well... But i found myself checking my gauge during games, only to find that i had 500 psi left! After only 600 rounds!

Needless to say, i was less than impressed with the efficiency of my new marker.

Now, don't mind that small weakness, This marker RIPS!, i have been able to reach a consistent 18 bps after some adjustments to the trigger.

The Biggest Gripe i have with this marker is that in order to up your efficiency you have to sacrifice the buttery smooth performance of the the Non-HE bolt.

Now... the newer versions of this marker are better in most ways, but i purchased mine for $400 last year, which means you should be able to find one for $250 nowadays!

But...You will be hard pressed to find a freestyle owner who wants to part with this amazing marker.

As of now, i am getting 850 shots with a 4000 fill, this is due to the break-in period, and my new NOX board, so now i can decrease my dwell.

My stock regulator has been sufficient, giving me ~7 fps variations, but since my 'style performs best at 280 fps i have nothing to worry about, and i don't notice lots of drop-off.

Well, im sure i missed something, just feel free to comment on this review.
Conclusion: This marker is a major contender on any field, speed and relability wise, with its only downfalls being efficiency and resale value.

So 10-2=8
