Strengths: Excellent quality, no slacks anywhere. CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
Weaknesses: Not properly lubed out of the box. Not std ASA on mine.
Review: Have been owning this marker for about a week now and thought that it was time to share.

In short: This marker at this price is UNBELIEVABLE!!!
You cannot be better off in this pricerange and a couple of priceranges above.

Shoots fast and consistently and has a quality that makes people doubt that you didn't pay more for it.

Good regulators, stable and fast recharging. Some have had problems with the regs, but they NEED to be disassembled, cleaned and lubed as a Step One for this marker it seems. I never had any problems, but did this anyway and the marker got more consistent and got better efficiency.

Some have had troubles breaking paint. Check your detents and make sure they spring back as they should. The marker works perfectly with one detent if you lose one detent-spring like I almost did.

I never had a problem with this.
Sure it's a Fasor, but the spring should last you a long time.

Oh, and the asa on the body is not really "standard". The milling had gone wrong somewhere on my Fusion and I couldn't exchange the standard reg for anything else. Mailed DP/evoventures and they sent one out without questions and fast as heck too!
-Excellent customer service! :)


This weekend I'm going out to run dirty reballs through the marker. Let's see what it thinks of that! He he he!

Edit 1:
The eyes are breakbeam and they might be tricked into thinking the bolt is a paintball. I haven't had problems with this, but I noticed that this is the case.
Anyway, I don't think it's possible to fire it when the bolt is in forward position so this might be a problem that exists solely in my head. It does not affect my Rating of this marker though... ...just a thought!

The board has simple (but effective) functionality. Scenario Dreams are making a new board as we speak for the tinkerer who likes more adjustability and uncapped fun.
Current board is capped at 20 bps although the marker can (and has been made to) cycle faster.
Not a problem for me though!

Edit 2:
HPR broke down. Lubed it, cleaned it, checked it, cleaned it again and experimented with different O-rings everywhere but nothing fixed the problem.

Emailed DP/Evoventures and they sent a new reg and new solenoid, just in case my noid got damaged in the process.

The problem? Regulator crept up to about 100 psi over set pressure when not firing for a while, then extreme shootdown and dropping pressure when firing. The reg dropped A LOT when shooting and recharged very slooowly.

Perfect customer support though. Got answer, solution and peace of mind all over a Saturday!
Happy even though this ruined a game-day for me!

Edit 3:
Evoventures sent parts that fixed the HPR. Now I am completely happy with the fusion... It's bordering on a 9 to 10 again! :D

I know the fault in the reg now, it's not common but does sometimes occur. Contact evoventures for replacement of parts and they'll ship out to you.
I even know how to fix the problem on field now, so if I'm around and your fusion hpr goes awol you are lucky in a way!


ADDED:
Reg creep help manual... Please read and use at your own risk!

UPDATE:
Have taken the fusion through it's paces now and am extremely happy with it.
The only problem that I've encountered was that when left standing for a while I experienced first shot drop-off. A simple affair of changing a couple of O-rings in the Low Pressure Regulator took care of that.
Over the chrono it really rocks. So consistent that I must rub my eyes to believe it...
Easy to shoot fast, easy to maintain and just a really good marker.

Best money ever spent! =D

Never broken a ball in it apart from the FSDO problem. Once the first ball didnt make it out the barrel during my first shot 18-ish BPS string. It broke and the others after it fluttered a little bit in the air... Doh!

I upped my rating of this marker to a 9 too!
Conclusion: A perfect deal.
Not quite a 10, but if you make the necessities (lube regs and set pressure correctly) it is damn near a perfect 10.
As for now I give it an 8, but that is out of the box. You need to know your Fusion before you really go tournamenting with it to eliminate sources of possible malfunction.
