Review: This is a great little performer. I used it for the first time over my Viking since I wanted to really test its potential--uncapped PSP ramping on the Alien really shows how well it's put together. It's very simple and clean in its design, save for the internal wiring [with which you should never have to mess anyway.]

Trigger adjustment through the bolt slot is an innovative touch.

Frame is very comfortable [surprisingly] though it's way too thin for me, what with the paper-thin aluminum panels. I am willing to overlook the items of preference.

Detents and eyes all work flawlessly; this wasn't a day where I was forced to swap out the Halo for an Egg or Revvy.

Trigger feels different from most setups. I got used to it eventually.
Conclusion: Great entry into the market, and definitely a very solid middle-of-the-road purchase for any up-and-coming player that demands performance.

Not bad at $600 new. I think I'd rather have an Alias for that price, but who's counting?
