Review: Pros:
-Eyes
I heard alot of complaints about the eyes on Angels, and I honestly have no idea why. After a long day of play I didn't have a single chop. Also, the eyes are really cool to look at (red laser eyes).

-Accuracy
Out of the box, one thing that I was really impressed with was the accuracy. Even with the stock barrel, I was able to put the blls where I wanted, when I wanted it. I'm still going to buy an Ultralite for it, but the stock is fine for now.

-Speed
I found Angel triggers to be very easy to rip on. Although the pull is wierd to the touch, when you start walking the trigger you're able to easily to get a nice streem of paint going. I haven't messed with my trigger yet, but the two rotating screws on the side of the trigger frame will let me get it just the way I like it.

-Weight
Despite the Angel's 3-tube design, the G7 Fly is still a fairly light marker. Although its not AS light as an Ego, Shocker, or DM6, it is still light as far as I'm concerned. I thought that coming from a DM6 the difference in weight would be very noticeable, but I adjusted without a problem.

-Milling
I love the G7 Fly's milling. The lines in the back are very smooth, and overall the gun flows very well together.

-Quiet
After shooting 5 pods in my back yard and playing with it in a tournament, I thought that the gun was on the quiet side, similar to that of a matrix (more then a matrix, but its still quiet).

-Comfort
By looking at the gun, I thought the reg was going to be uncomfortable to hod, but found that it offered as a nice handle to keep a steady hand. The grip frame is personal preference, but with a 45 frame I really liked the feel of my gun in my hands. Also, the stock grips are quite soft.

-Efficiency
At first, I wasn't sure whether to put efficiency as a pro or a con, but decided to put it as a pro. Off of a 3000psi on a 45/45 tank, I used 1000psi to shoot 2 pods. So, Iím estimating that off of a full fill, I should be able to get a hopper and 4-5 pods.

-Consistency
Because I only used this gun once, Iíve only seen its chronograph readings once. I donít specifically recall what the exact numbers, but I do know that for out of the box it was pretty good (Iím guessing around +/- 8 or so).

-Price
Recently, the G7 Fly has dropped drastically in price, which is a big plus since you're getting the same great marker for even less.

Cons:
-Kick
After using the gun in a tournament and shooting it quite a bit in my back yard, I have to say I wasnít too impressed by the amount of kick. Its not bad, and as long as you keep a firm grip its fine, but it is noticeable. I think that once I break it in it wonít be as bad, but for now it could be better.

-Charger
This is definately the largest gripe I have with the marker. Instead of allowing you to charge the gun into the wall, it is REQUIRED that you charge the marker into one of those outlets you find in the car. Why WDP would do this, I don't know, but it definately should be fixed.
Conclusion: Overall, the G7 Fly is a great marker. The looks, weight, and speed are things that you will notice right out of the box, and is a marker that is definately compared to other high-ends out there.

Really good review. Same with your others.
I'm thinking of getting this one, any other marker out there I should look at before this one.

Im going to take a stab here and say in reference to the charger issue that it's because since WDP is English they make different plugs than America hence they have to re-make some chargers or set a supply for specific areas which might not work out when they instead can make a gun with a universal charger (i.e. the car plug charger) which will end up making more money. Don't quote me on this im just guessing.

Yeh this is very true, but its solvable, call wdp or look at the watt and voltage yourself and you can just go somwhere like radio shack and by a wall adapter for car chargers. =P I did it myself and its working fine dude.
Peace

srry man but thats wrong....WDP did it because it only takes 2 hours on that charger to fully charge where as a wall charger it takes very wrong....or something like that.....i know it was just a guess im just telling you the answer

I have a little secret... you can use a mobile phone charger... I think it is motorolla speed charger... It is 4.8v. Be careful what you buy.. you don't interchange negative and positive.
