Products Used:
AKA Markers..Both AKA and Alien are both small PB companies that emphasis exceptional service to the customer. Technically both markers are very different in design. However, they are very similar in performance. What do serious players want in a pb marker? Speed, accuracy, and efficiency. The Remains offers these characteristics and one more the AKA cannot... Lightness in overall weight. It weights just under 2 lbs. That' s amazing.
Marker Setup: Currently a 2006 Remains with the 45 grip.
Recommended
Upgrades:
None. It comes with all the ups. It does comes with either the 45 or 85 grip.
Strengths: The lightness and weight along with speed, accuracy, and efficiency.
Weaknesses: Unproven and can it be field strip easily?
Review: What do you get when you milled the heck out of an Alien Interceptor? You get the "Remains." You get a very light, compact high performance tournament marker right out of the box for under $900. Being a former gun whore and spending thousands on markers, this is a excellant value.
Conclusion: I gave the Remains a 9 rating because of the unknown. It must prove itself in battle on the paintball field.
Rating:
9 out of 10

The Hurricanes and many lower division teams are using them with much success, I'd say its proven. Also, XS-NRG won semi pro NPPL last year using 05 Interceptors.

Don't buy something just because a team uses it. If you go to an event and notice they never have to adjust anything, great. Follow that. But most major teams use what they do because it's given to them with the contract that they use it and the manufacturer will pay their fees or supply paint.

SP sponsored teams that used the old shoebox Shockers often had to have an SP tech nearby or bring at least three or four extra markers just to get through a tournament. How many people do you think bought shoeboxes because they saw the All Americans using them?
