Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
standard tools, screw driver, crescent wrench, hex drives, etc.
Marker Setup: main: stock rainmaker w/ select fire (i would upgrade but i hate to ruin a classic)
revvy with xboard, pmi pure energy 68ci 3000 psi fiber wrapped
backup:spyder imagine w/ tornado valve, rocking trigger frame, pmi regulator, dead-on on/off drop with system x micro gauge, bandit nylatron bolt
backup backup:talon smoke w/ tank adapter, avenger pistol with 10 rnd clip and 12 gram changer/4 oz. tank
Strengths: Has everything my spyder and rainmaker and talon and avenger needs
Weaknesses: No locking mechanism for the tools
Review: the whole tool itself is steel, two 1/8 stainless plates on each side, making it extremely rugged for uses outside of paintball, the composite grip gives a good handle on the tool, providing maximum torque, and the case makes it even more handy as it will go on any belt

the crescent wrench is by far has the smoothest swirly thing ive ever had on any crescent wrench, and i have craftsman,walmart brand, and others.
the wrench extends to about 3/4s an inch, making it perfect for paintball applications since u hardy ever see any bolts or fitings go over 1/2". the wrench is bradded on the two steel paltes and its very sturdy, solid stainless steel head makes it perfect for smacking things into place or thumping a little brother in the head with

the allen wrenches in the tool are very useful, although it only carries the four most common sizes, those four will fit any spyder/clone, rainmaker, talon, cocker, etc.

the rounded tips on the allen wrenches makes for a very useful feature, for example the rear screw on my spyders trigger frame is hard to get at, but with the rounded head u can unscrew it at an angle, thus making the usual time consuming screw a breeze to take off

the philips headed screwdrivers are very well-made, with a sharp point to get even the tiniest screws, however, u may find that the broad flathead mayy be too large for SOME paintball guns, but when it comes to spyder/clones, it fits every screw perectly (i mean like it was made for those screws)

the bore sizer is very useful for any1 curious to what paint is best for their barrel, and u may save money from not chopping nearly as much,

the o-ring pick is quite handy, as i usually have a knife to pull one out, with this pick u wont scratch your bolts, etc. and it will not cut the o-ring so u can see if its reuseable or not (another way to save a buck or two)

Conclusion: overall, viewloader made an excellent tool, although the lack of a locking mechanism on the internal tools makes using them sometimes a pain, for example, u use the screwdriver and it will flop down, or either all the other tools fall out, very annoying, fix to an extent with a small rubber band around the handle,

this tool features all the go0d things paintballers need, and the bore sizer can make your game experience much more fun, as u will find yourself shooting more accurate with correct paint sizes

great job VL, but for the price id say put in a good locking mechanism for the tools and u would have a masterpiece worthy of $40
