Review: What to say? Have used allot of different markers and have owned allot also. Bought and Ego 4 months ago and have just purchased an 06 Cyborg! Now my Ego is my back up, just dosn't compare in my opinion. The only thing the ego has over the borg is better grips and isn't quite as tall. Everything else is just second best as far as performance goes. Yea yea you ego lovers rant and rave about all the parts that are better blah blah!!! Coz they are not better, just because not many people know or even consider mac dev cyborgs as an option dosnt make them any less marker. To prove it i took my 05 Ego, 06 borg, and a mates 06 angel out in my back yard and set targets at 15 ft, 30ft, 60ft. The cyborg was hitting 100% at 15ft so was the Ego and angel. At 30 ft Ego 100%, cyborg 100% angel 90%. at 60ft ego 80%, cyborg 97%, angel 74%. I shoot 30 balls per target per gun and did the same test 3 times over the weekend , same results each time. What more proof do you need, the new cyborg is so much better than the previous models and is better in performance to the Ego and angel speed. Now lets talk about the crazy speed. 34bps with paint proven. Now i cant shoot that fast so im not going to say it can. But i can hit 16bps on the ego with burst up to 20bps, on the borg i can consistantly hit 19bps and bursts up to 24bps. Angels just arn't me so i didnt try the 06 speed. Milling is mint same as most markers these days, very light but thats expected same as durability, maintenace and strength. But who buys a marker worth $950 that dosnt have those things. However and i hate to say this but the grip is bad! I mean you can blow air through the grip into the electronics, so if you can blow air water can easily follow! I just made a grip shape plastic strip and tapped it underneath the grip, works fine but not what you would expect from macdev!!! In saying that though if the only fault is a grip "get over it"

Thanks for reading, by the way i was shocker lover but not anymore!!
Conclusion: Sweet Gat, well worth the bling, better than any other marker out there needs no upgrades bar a new grip but i dont't count that as an upgrade!! Im serious this gat rips out of the box no upgrades tinkering or anything. All you have to do for the remander of its time is clean and lube it every 20000 shoots. Dead easy and dead accuarate. Well done macdev! Now bring some new grips out soon, waterproof ones!!! Yea haaaaa
10 out of 10

Note: the targets were 600ml coke cans filled with sand.

dude, accuracy is barrel, paint to barrel match and the paint. guns have no affect. with the same barrel and same paint with the same velocity, all will give you teh perfectly exact same accuracy.

You sir are ignorant and are trying to sound smart. Paint to barel match has no effect on the accuracy of a gun, nor does barrel really. THe thing that does effect it is the recoil of the gun as well as weight. So in a sense guns do have an effect on accuracy.

also... to add on... the design of the bolt, the reg and the recoil all are aspects of the marker and all have an effect on the shot to shot accuracy of the to marker. the molt inshures that air is distubited evenly on the ball, the reg keeps the consistancy from shot to shot, and low recoil keeps the barrel down and on the target. paint to barrel match is mainly for air efficency and such but it does affect the accuracy a bit. kudos to guitarguy...o, and dont b*tch at the spelling, its 11:00 in the morning... (just getting ready for those who only have my spelling as a reason to conplain). and die behind your gun... R.I.P. Chris...

The paint, barrel size (and length), fps as close as i could get. The Cyborg was still more accurate. So it must have more to do than just the barrel!?

Just a question, how much lighter in feel, not numbers, is the 'Borg compared to the Promaster?
