Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Marker Setup: ICD ProMaster
J&J Edge Elite barrel kit
Halo B
Redz ASA (torpedo style)
soon to come-custom bolt
Recommended
Upgrades:
Nothing really

It is already a very accurate marker stock, but a barrel kit will allow you to use odd size paint. Also you need a electric hopper. No need for a new reg unless the sock reg breaks or you feel that the stock reg is not working properly----otherwise, save your money for a new barrel kit or other needed accessory/ upgrade.
Strengths: *Extremely accurate stock marker
*Lightweight
*Fast
*Well constructed
*Great stock board
*Very Reliable
Weaknesses: *The battery install is a little time consuming
*Doesn't come with ASA

Very minor
Review: This gun is great stock. With this marker, you are getting a very fast, lightweight, well constructed, and accurate marker STOCK!!!!

Barrel--------
If you want to make this marker even more accurate---a barrel kit is the perfect choice. The Freak Kit is nice, but the inserts are easily damaged. The Evil Pipe kit is also a nice kit, but only one tip---no. WGP Kaner barrel kit is awesome, but will set you back $180. The J&J Edge Elite barrel kit is very accurate and well constructed. It has no rivets between the front and back like some other barrels. The three fronts are great to, I have the 10'', 12'', and 14''. The kit is also not to hard on the pocket as other barrel kits ($80).

Trigger--------
The stock board on this gun is great^^^it has Semi-Automatic - 15BPS Limit, Ramp Automatic -15BPS Limit, Ramp -15BPS Limit, Ramp Burst -15BPS Limit, Semi Automatic - Unlimited BPS, Ramp Automatic - Unlimited BPS, Ramp - Unlimited BPS, and Ramp Burst - Unlimited BPS. Not all boards have these options stock---but the ICD ProMaster does. Also the grip on this gun is great, but if you don't like the bulge out on the grip for your palm, i recommend Dye grips or the cheaper Evil Grips.

Reg--------
As I said in the recommended upgrades---No need for a new reg unless the stock reg breaks or you feel that the stock reg is not working properly----otherwise, save your money for a new barrel kit or other needed accessory/ upgrade.

Bolt--------
The stock bolt is also very nice. Many high end and low end markers need a new bolt to perform at their best: quiet, smooth, and fast. The stock bolt seems to achieve these 3 qualities, but if you want to see how quiet you can get this gun---it is worth having a custom bolt made or buying a good-brand bolt.

Maintenance--------
This gun is very easy to clean. Its sleek design and polished finish makes it easy to clean and shine up. Regularly clean the outside of your gun, it makes it look better and with all the build up gone, perform a little better. Oil the gun at least 2 times a month and keep the chamber, bolt, and barrel(s) clean to enhance the guns performance. To oil the gun and make sure the oil is throughout the gun, take the hose off your macro-line/micro-line/steel-hose and place a few drops inside the fitting. Replace the hose and put a tank on the gun and allow the air and oil to circulate in the gun. Also place a few drops on the bolt and where the bolt to ovoid scratching and erosion.To keep the barrel from ''sticking'' on the gun, clean the threads and place a drop of oil on the threads of the barrel. This will allow the barrel to be removed easily. --- I know, oil here oil there 'whats with all the oiling'------well it will keep the gun from scratching, clogging, jamming, and keep everything running smooth (believe me).

Hopper--------
This gun is not front heavy nor back heavy without the tank. Some markers are not well balanced. With a 68 ci tank, this gun is still balanced well during play. The Halo B is a great hopper to use with this gun, but has a weak shell. The egg is a mistaken buy. The egg has some speed but the feedneck is weak and it looks ugly, also causes a balanced gun to be back heavy. A Q-loader will provide that weight for the front to make it very well balanced, but if you carry 5 Q-pods and 2 off them mess up, well your in trouble. My recommendation for a hopper for this gun has to be the Halo B for amazing speed, looks, reliability, and construction.

****This gun is able to use both high and low output tanks, so there is really no need to buy a new high pressure reg unless the stock one blows out (very unlikely--and if it does, tell ICD and they will send you a new one). It is recommended in the manual to use a low output tank, but it will work with high output tanks with no consequence to .internals. Customer service is awesome. If you don't believe me, call them, (that is where i found out that the ProMaster works with high output tanks).****
Conclusion: This is a great gun stock: fast, accurate, lightweight, reliable, well constructed, and sleek. It is even better with a barrel kit---especially the J&J Edge Elite barrel kit

If you are wanting a great gun for a low price, this is it.

Dispute:
you are not allowed to use oils, only grease such as Smart PArts SL33K or DOW 33

Dispute:
the gun does not run on high and low presure tanks it is best on a low high flow tank

All of your strengths are weaknesses.

ggman your a retard. You can use a hp tank, in fact I bet almost all the promaster users do use hp... Although the gun says you should use LP, if you do you will get drop offs. As for Feight I have no idea what you are trying to say... accuracy a weakness? Fast a weakness? please elaborate
