Review: After purchasing a DP Fusion, I still have to wipe the drool off my face. For $350, this gun is capable of of tournament level play. Maintenance is extremely easy, the only other gun I can think of that is even more simplistic is the Quest. Bolt is Delrin, so you don't have to worry about lubing it, ram does NOT require a screw, 1/4 of turn on the knob and *pop* out it comes. It can fire at 15 bps semi/ramping or 20 bps semi/ramping. Some people say a barrel upgrade is essential, but I believe it depends on the paint. The barrel bore size is .685, and the paint i use is .685...perfect match. There is a version 2 that has either come out or is going to come out that has a new board that allows everything from this version, but adds a 25 bps semi/ramping mode. And this thing absolutely rips, not a big fan of ramping, but 20 bps ramping brings a smile to my face and a maniacal laughter from my mouth.

Now 1 problem I did have was that the LPR was stuck, I couldn't unscrew it for cleaning. I had to use a wrench to twist it out and scratched it in the process. This is a minor difficulty, but I'm still crying over the scratches. However, this is where Dangerous Powers really shine. Their customer service is the best I've experienced EVER, not just in the paintball industry. I was up at 5 am, sent them an email, received a reply at 5:15 am. If you check the forums of what people say about the customer service, nothing but glowing reviews. So if your Fusion is a lemon, or something strange is happening to it, you'll be guaranteed to have a working one within a week. (I got my LPR fixed)

The ASA isn't a necessary upgrade, but DP has a new RAPS ASA that is out that utilizes a flip level for the on/off as opposed to the twist knob on the version 1. Dangerous Powers is an developing company and are continuing to pump out new products for the Fusion. They have a color kit, hand grips and many other aftermarket products on the way.
Conclusion: Why spend $700+ on an EGO, timmy, cyborg etc when you can drop $350 and get the same performance? Out of the box, this thing is ready to rock and roll and is backed by possibly the greatest customer support ever. Dangerous Powers is continuing to pump out aftermarket products for your modding and customization needs. Buy one and you won't regret it.
