Similar products I have used are the Tippmann model 98 w/ flatline, Tippmann A-5, and Spyder Rodeo.
I use an Ariakon SIM-4. I have an rifle sling, APP remote, GenX Harness, Extreme Rage elbow, and PMI 20 oz. Co2.
With this gun you need a remote and possibly a sling.
Great customer service
The gun is heavy if you don't move the tank or use a remote.
I bought this gun from eBay. It was broke when I got it. I called Ariakon and sent it to them with no problem. They were the best customer service of any paintball company. This gun is as accurate as an A-5 with flatline. The Tippmann model 98 with flatline isn't even close to competing with the SIM-4. Even the A-5 couldn't shoot the person in the sniper stand when the SIM-4 did. This gun is one of the best at woods ball and scenario games. The only down side to this gun is that it needs a remote for it. The gun from me gets an 11 out of 10.
This product is the best I have ever out of Spyder and Tippmann. If you play woods ball and want the best gun you can get buy an Ariakon SIM-4.
10 out of 10

quote:Originally posted by Colin Basnett It can't shoot as far as a flatline without an upgrade.
He didnt say it shoots as far as a flatline, he said its as accurate as one.
He is still wrong though because if my SIM-5 with a 9 inch unfluted barrel can blow away a flatline and just beat a 16 inch SP Progressive then im thinkin the SIM-4 could shoot alot better.
