Upgrades:
A barrel kit (Matchstick is my choice) would be a nice touch, other than that, nuthin
Strengths: Light, accurate, fast, good looking, efficient, "Sonic" means it's pre-upgraded for you
Weaknesses: The gun's profile is big, but the marker itself remains light
Review: Ok...I recently traded my shocker for this gun on PBnation...and I don't think I'll ever look back. This gun is about as good as it gets...in 5 years from now, this gun will still be at the top of the game. You gotta figure, all a paintball gun needs to do is shoot paintballs fast, accurately and with the least amount of air. It's super light, so snap-shooting is a breeze. It's a little tall on the profile, but comparable to DM's in height (which are a popular buy). By today's standards, it's a tad large, but it's still comparatively light. Now as far as all the goodies a Sonic Borg comes with (in comparison to a regular Borg), the trigger, claw (Feed neck), milling, board...Those just save you the time and effort on getting other upgrades aftermarket. They've even gone so far as to set the break beam eyes lower in the feedneck, causing the ball to travel fully into the breach before allowing it to fire, to reduce the chance of pinching a ball in the bolt. It's all the little details such as this that make the Sonic Borg stand out. So you get your gun straight outta the box and it'll rip all the way. MACDev used to make surgical equipment before they started in on the paintball scene...don't ask me how they got into it, but they're doing it right. This is definitely a keeper, and I don't think I'll ever get rid of mine...honestly.

EDIT UPDATE::: It's been 2 years since I traded for my borg and I'm still rockin it hard. My friends are sayin I should trade it off and go with something new, but I tell them to STFU. Recently my friend, who is an avid gun whore, got his millionth gun trade from PB nation and we took our guns out for a test, his was a Ripper 3, a whole 2 years newer than mine, with "Better" software and hardware and yadda yadda...Mine hadnt been touched all winter after I put it away (4 months of non-use) and I broke it out, set it up, plugged some air into it and it mowed faster, more consistently and without breaks...BETTER than his Ripper...and he was so impressed that he offered to buy it from me right there. I flat out refused him, and promptly told him i'd be buried with this gun. Nuff said
Conclusion: If you can find one, and are looking for a solid gun that performs without question, then I'll SUGGEST this one.There are plenty of guns out there that can compare to the borg, but truth is, they AREN'T a borg, and chances are everyone else has a shocker, angel, Timmy or DM. If you want "Bang for buck" with a sense of individuality and uniqueness, and the best customer service the paintball world has to offer, You can't go wrong with a Sonic Borg, cept maybe an 07 sonic borg

My "ladyborg" pic...check it and drool suckas 8P
