Review: Okay so I was looking around for a new marker after my 04 'cocker had served me well so naturally I hopped on pbreview to see what I should check out. Taking $ into mind I decided to try out the promaster. After reading the reviews I assumed it would be slightly better than the ion, and since a guy on my teams runs with an ion I though I knew what I was getting into. Wow, I was wrong, this marker can rip with Timmy's, I really can't even put them in the same class other than for price. Out of the box this thing was ready to waste some bad guys, after a quick trip to the chrono and setting the gun modes (which is incredibly easy to do, no stupid blinking lights) I put on unlimited SEMI and tore up the field. I have used some low end Timmys and one DM4 so I had experienced this rate of fire in the past, but from a gun with a 399$ MSRP is beyond my comprehension.

Okay onto looks...honestly that was the main reason I wanted to test this gun at my local shop, to see if Indian Creek can join the rest of the major companies and produce a good looking gun, well if you've seen any of the pics of this gun, you know they can but the pictures really dont do the marker justice.

Another awesome feature on this gun would be the bolt. This 399$ marker comes with an all delrin bolt that requires no lubrication.

Next is the size of this marker (or the lack of it rather) the size makes if perfect for the aggressive front player. This marker is about 9'' tall and 9'' wide, including drop forward and feed neck. Just so you can't picture the difference my 04 cocker was11'' tall and 10'' wide with no drop forward. In the end those inches add up and if you do get tagged in the marker with this thing you must have been bonus balled to hell because theres no way there gonna reach this before n e thing else.

Now weight, flat out the lightest marker I've ever held or heard of, when my dealer gave me the box I though it was empty, enough said.

EDIT! during a local tournament it started leaking air out of the front grip, I called ICD and they went through how to fix my problem and it turned out its was the install of my ASA but they were very polite and would not let me hand up untill he heard me shoot some ropes over the phone. Talk about service I wish the ratings went higher GO ICD!
Conclusion: In the end this gun pwns. Make sure you check this thing out before you buy a new marker, especially and ion. Watch the video @ www.icdpaintball.com to see this thing rip STOCK in 3 different modes.


Please leave ranking!

I have an Angel and I'm looking for a good backup gun. I've been trying to choose in between this or an Ion so I'd like to know how you like this gun because I've only had a chance to hold this gun and haven't shot it yet but my friend has an Ion with some upps and it shoots nice but is too slow for my taste. How would you say the speed of this gun is?
Thanks

I'm thinking about buying this gun and this review sort of helped. I was wondering if i should sell my OMEN 2.0 and get this. And also I was wondering what the difference is between the Lasoya and this one.

promaster you can get lasoya promasters for 200
   

ionlover200 Friday, March 23rd, 2007 | 8:26 pm PST
lasoya has a different boddie and trigger also the board gives you more options and has debounce

Go with the Promaster. The Promaster is way better than a B2K.
As far as I know, all threadings for frames are the same. I have used a Smart Parts rail and a Critical ASA and a New Designs ASA in my Promaster. They all fit fine.
