Diablo Wrath, ACP Delrin bolt & pin, Evil Driver, Endo Cradle, Smart Parts on/off, dyed blue grips
Great "ergomonics" - see review body
Only two colors
This cradle sports great "ergonomics" that I was not able to find with a standard duckbill or a drop forward.
I spend 90% of my time playing woodsball and scenario... by the end of the day, its hard to patrol and keep your gun up high in a ready position. That extra movement of bringing your gun up into aiming position can either blow your cover or cost you that critical second that allows your opponent to get the drop on you first.
The Endo Cradle angles your tank up and behind the gun, which allows you to rest your tank/gun on your shoulder. Since your back hand is not holding up the gun, this seriously reduces the weight of the gun as you hold it. Obviously this will reduce fatigue in your trigger arm and hand, and let you keep your gun up in a ready position for extended periods of time.
With a duck bill or even the drop forward I used to use, I had two options:
1) put the tank under my armpit - which forced my elbow out AND I still had to support the weight of the gun. With my elbow out, I was a bigger target.
2) hold the gun farther away in front of me so that the tank was not under my armpit - but this increases the strain of carrying the gun around.
With the Endo Cradle, I am now able to take the weight off my trigger hand and really wail on the trigger. It also lets me get very close to the back of the gun to sight down the barrel.
I really feel like the Endo Cradle forces me to tuck in tighter. Both of my hands are in closer now so that I can get the gun into position to aim down the barrel. I even let my "civilian" wife try it, and she was impressed too.
I found that this allowed me to keep my gun up high longer so that I could sight down the barrel better.
I seriously recommend this to any woodsball player. It will keep you fresh longer during those long running games. And everybody knows that the outdoor season kicks off with some lengthy scenario games!!
I have not played speedball with it yet, but I will edit this review once I have tried it at speedball.
10 out of 10
