>Phantom, also a great marker, but not the class or feel of a Buzzard
To compare any of these markers to a Buzzard you have to be kidding.
Custom gloss black Carter Buzzard, T-Stock.
*I have other setups, but this will be the only one listed because it is relevant to the review.
Their are no upgrades specifically for this marker, and none are needed.
>It's a Carter
>The price is a weakness, but it is expensive for a reason.
This marker is fantastic. I have used various markers, pump and semi alike, but none can compare to this piece of art. It is extremely accurate, and it feels wonderful to use. I picked this up and my first shot was dead on, like an extension of my body.
However, this marker is not "worth" all of the money if you are going on performance alone. Although I consider it to be the finest stock class marker in the world, it is not twice as good as a Phantom, although the price tag is double. But that isn't a downfall either. You get what you pay for. It feels fantastic, you can't even compare the two in that department. This thing doesn't even have a pump stroke, it glides like magic.
And looks? This thing is beautiful. It will draw looks at the field and many compliments. But the best reactions come from those who know what it is, and appreciate it for that. It's a Carter, hand-made, precise, and beautiful. You don't need one of these to play pump, but it is an icon of pump play.
If you can't afford it and want to play, buy something else. In fact, I wouldn't dare to purchase one of these as my first stock class marker. This is however the finest piece of paintball equipment you could own, and is worth the price tag many times over.
Remember, if you decide to purchase a Carter, you are not just buying a paintball marker. You are buying a piece of art that is worthy of praise and respect from any player.
I recommend it to any player who will appreciate it, and realizes what a wonderful creation it truly is.
If you can afford it, love stock class play, and respect it for what it is you cannot go wrong. Buy it, use it, love it. Perfect in every way, and has more prestige associated with it then any marker in the world.
