As one of the ICD faithfull, I've owned and/or played the 04 B2K4 w/PDS, the Promaster, and the 04 gen 1 Freestyle.
1: 2004 Gen 1 Freestyle , w/ Dye 18" boomstick, Halo B w/Victory board, Full Predator 5.0 code flashed board, Crossfire 92/4500 HP tank, NDZ Feedneck, CP ASA on/off
2: 05 Freestyle FS-7, 14" Dye Ultralite, NDZ no rise feedneck, NDZ ultralite ASA on/off, Crossfire HP 68/4500, Halo B w/ rip drive and CHEETAH board
1: Dye ultralite barrel = a high quality, light, and accurate barrel.
2: Different feedneck. I didn't like the one that was on there too bulky and not easy to use. Suggest somthing like the NDZ lever clamping feedneck.
3: New ASA on/off. The stock one although it is light, is just too big and bulky . I suggest once again, the ultralight by NDZ = small, compact, light, slim, auto bleed, and two finger turn when gassed up.
Ball on Ball Accurate! Consistant! Fast! Smooth! Light! What more could you ask for?
Don't expect to conserve any air! But I've seen worse!
I'm gonna make this short and sweet. This marker is
-cleaning & maintenance is a snap.
-last but not least, this marker is just as good if not better than those over priced markers that alot of other people have. Don't pay for a name of a product, pay for the performance of the product. You can't go wrong with this marker. Everybody know's a DM, or a Timmy, or Ego when they see one. So they know what to expect when they see somone on the field using one. The FS-7 however, is much less known and much more underestimated. After other players with thier greatly over priced and under performing markers take a few double takes of this marker and actually see how well it performs, they'll end up feeling like they got burnt in more way than one. If you really want to get them heated, tell them how much you paid for it.
This is the marker for me and I think that just about anyone else who has this marker can and would agree with just about everything that I've posted in this review. It's the total package and at half of the price.
