Review: Accuracy: Amazing. Ball on ball contact and in lines. Hit after hit where you want to hit and as many as you want at a time.

Size: Smallest marker I have ever owned. Even smaller than my phantoms, spyders or cocker snipers.

Maintenance: This marker needs constant maintenance. It is a high end marker, and if you don't take care of it, it won't take care of you on the field. However they did an excellent job at making it (almost) idiot-proof for disassembly and teching. Since it's completely enclosed you won't run into dirt getting into any internals which is a god send if you've ever owned an e-blade or soemthing of that type and live in an area with lots of rain or play in the sand.

FSDO: This has to do with maintenance. Almost every other time I go out to play, at some piont in the day if not for the whole day there is a little drop off on the first ball going out of the marker. It's not that big of a deal if you are playing on a bring your own paint speedball field, but if you ever try to play rec with this thing at $10 per 100 paintballs you'll be broke before the start of summer. After tweaking and cleaning and teching the marker I still cannot guarantee no FSOD which is kind of frustrating.

Air Eff: Good for a higher end higher rate of fire marker, but not great. You'll be shooting more paint and faster and you'll be using a lot more air. I suggest getting a 4500 psi tank if you have this marker, no matter the size.
Conclusion: Great marker for a great price, and looks and feels even better on the field. Positives crush and outweigh the negatives. I would suggest testing out the marker before buyign it if you are thinking of going up into the $1000 level. Because at this level most of the higher end marker perform about the same, but the feel is completely different. And that's the most important and personal choice.
10 out of 10
