My friend raved about this item long before I actually got the chance to use it. But when I did use it, I was totally shocked and amazed at how easy it was for me to just gas and degas my marker. This model is a bit longer than the new SL ones, but they don't shy in comparison. SOme actually prefer the looks of these, but that comes down to personal preference.
The price has dropped on these or on the similar SL ones to around $30. For that price and it includes the rail/ mini dropforward, I would DEFINATEly recommend getting this item.
It comes in diff colors, red, blue, black, grey, etc. so you can sort of match it to your scheme. You can also get these used and I would recommend it as well if you are just looking for an on/off system.
The knob is really easy to turn, you wont hurt your fingers, and there is enough force presence so that the knob won't turn by itself, but its ease for your fingers to turn. The style is great, and it looks awesome.
Strengths: Looks, quality, durability, ease of use, price, weight, color availability
Weakness: Slighter longer, maybe 0.75cm longer than the SL
This is a great item, esp for the price that its being offered for now. I would highly recommend picking these up and they are by far, the BEST on/off I have ever used. Thats probably why eclipse is one of the top companies in paintball items nowadays.
Pick these up if you can find a good deal on them. You won't be disappointed.
