Recommended
Upgrades:
Clamping feedneck (you'll need it)
ASA ( Doesn't come with one- I prefer the Unimount )
InvertedPB bolt (this is almost required)
Possibly a new board (but nothing wrong with stock)
Strengths: Small.Light.Fast.Easy maintenance.Unique.Good manual.Includes pressure gauge tool.
Weaknesses: Bolt. Annodizing on body. A lot of lubing.Macro fitting placement on HPR.Efficiency.
Review: Here's the straight up deal if you're thinking of buying one:

It's one of the top 3 smallest and lightest markers available right now.Good if you like to play tight and the 12" Assassins barrel adds to the compactness.It's bad if you have big hands.Bigger guys will find it cramped feeling.As a side note to this keep in mind the fitting for the air line on the inline reg is high on the right side.Bad placement.Again,small hands can deal with it (still annoying) but bigger hands will absolutely hate it.More on the reg later.

It's fast.It will lay ropes of paint. The stock Frenzy board (mine came with version 127.4) works and is easy to use but is limited on adjustability and options.The basics,by todays standards,are there but thats it. Bottom line on the speed- you won't be outgunned no matter what your competition is using but I won't call it the fastest.

Out of the box efficiency leaves a lot to be desired. Ok,honestly, it's horrible.You can improve it drastically with an InvertedPB bolt (the only aftermarket bolt I'm aware of) and some fine tuning.It's still not "great" but it's "ok". There are mods you can do ( ex: T-Chop mod) to further improve efficiency but I haven't undertaken them. The bolt improved it enough for me personally.

Maintenance is easy. The manual explains everything well and includes nomenclature for visual reference. The LPR,HPR,and ram assembly are easily dismantled and serviced. This is a good thing because the ram assembly in particular has a "squeegie" effect and you have to lube it regularly.

Consistency is on par with any other decent marker I've used. Out of the box was +/- 4 at the chrono. The Torpedo reg is adequate and I experienced zero shootdown on long strings. I've heard of quality control issues with the Torpedoes but there are lemons with any product you produce in numbers.Mine works beautifully. BUT...the downside is the odd reverse threading.The stock vertical asa will not accept an aftermarket reg without an adapter. So if the air line issue is a major nuisance to you or you just want another inline reg you must also buy the adapter.

Cosmetically..well,beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Be your own judge. I have the black Defiant2.The anno on the body looks thin and is a lighter shade than the barrel or feedneck.In fact it looks almost purple (you can see it in the picture on the first page). The other colors (red,blue etc...) all look uniform and correct. I recommend you look at the gun before purchasing if you want black.

Upgradeability is limited but good. There aren't a lot of companies producing Defiant stuff but fortunately parts like boards,feednecks,and adjustable ram caps are the same as the newer Intimidator/Alias.
Conclusion: The Defiant2 is fast and fun. It may not be as sexy as some or have a plethora of aftermarket parts like others but it will compete with all of them. Plus you won't see many of them at your local field like the "cookie-cutter" guns we see everyone carrying. If individuality,size,and speed matter to you, you can't go wrong.
