Upgrades:

Strengths: light weight
almost no Kick at all
shoots ropes
Weaknesses: we experience some fsdo. It shoots right out, and thenit is off to the races.
Review: We picked this gun up to introduce it at the Atlanta CCFOA the same weekend. We had a little trouble getting it tuned right off, but soon had it flying. Showed it at a 3 man tourny and played a couple of games with it. Not only does it shoot bullets, but it gets very consistant, especially after it starts ramping.
No Kick, there is virtually no kick to this gun. Nothing at all. We shot 4 1/2 cases of paint through it on Sunday and it never put up a fuss.
It's light weight and weighted to be very nimble.

The bolt is field strippable so maintenance is a big plus.
On top of that, the board is easy to use and has all of the settings you should need to play .Efficiancy is way up compard to previous Freestyles.

This thing really rocks

Conclusion: This shoots as good if not better than anything else out there.
Rating:
10 out of 10

yeah. it is really just preferance. they are very close to each other. if u look in my sig i have 2 egos and a quest. i still like fs-8's and dm6's. a guy on my team has one and in some practices we switch guns for a couple games. it is just like every other highend gun but a fraction of the price. i will buy one for a practice gun soon. i hope.
