Period of
Product Use:

1 year
Products Used:
05 Vision Shocker, few ups
Marker Setup: '06 Hybrid Traitor Shocker, M5 Dynasty board
Replaced on/off with a CP
maybe the on/off, but its just personal preference
Strengths: Great Feel, the trigger is AMAZING. The gun definitly turns heads.
Weaknesses: I have spent more time fixing and adjusting it than i have playing with it.
Review: This gun is an excellent gun when its working. However I have had a ton of problems with it in the short week i've had it. First of all, when i first gassed it up, it was leaking from about 6 different spots, the operating pressure gauge, both sides of the on/ff, the regulator, AND out of the body. I spent a few hours getting everything patched up and it worked great.

I used it in a tournament and was adjusting the operating pressure and dwell between EVERY game. some games it worked like a dream, other games the velocity would drop below 150 fps. Not sure whats going on...

Although I'm extremely frusterated with the gun so far, i must say that it has an incredible feel, and when it decides to work, i love it. Great efficiency, great looks, etc. I'll try to update this when i get all the kinks worked out and let you know what i think.

Update: After replacing the board, I did a little work to get the operating pressure and dwell set appropriately (Dwell seems like it needs to be set pretty high, but this is apparently normal for this type of solenoid). I had this gun RIPPING with the new board. I was very happy that I finally had my gun working again. However, after shooting about 3 pods, the gun went to hell again. Dropping off, very inconsistent, etc. The gun's currently with the SmartParts techs getting looked at. I will repost once I get it back.
Conclusion: Giving Smart Parts and Hybrid Technologies the benefit of the doubt, its a great gun. I just hope this isn't how all their products are! I'll have to give it an 8, just out of my own personal experience.

If you're reading this, some people in the other reviews state that the LPR isn't that great. Maybe your board is bad also. Seems like a good marker, please keep updateing, I'd like to see any potential issues.

Yeah, I put a hybrid reg on mine and I haven't had a problem since..The only other problem I had was that I was out shooting the stock board, once I put in the Virt board I have had NO problems.
