dont know, just got to dry fire it
Pretty much an upped ion
Okay, i went to world cup and had to stop by the smart parts tent to get my shocker looked at. while they were working on my marker, i looked at the ones they had up. while i was looking at them, a guy from smart parts came over and asked if i wanted to test their newest marker. i said sure, and he gave me a stock epiphany with a tank on it. he said i could go crazy and just rip it. so i did. i have to say, i was imressed. of first look, you think its gonna be pretty much like an ion, but its not. its lighter, smoother trigger pull, and a lot better looking. it pretty much looks like a nerve, ion and DM put together.
For the $425 price tag on it, id would buy one for a backup just in case. i suggest it to anyone. whether youre new, or upgrading, or buying a backup. i give this marker an eight out of ten cause i didnt get to see how accurate it was, and nothing deserves a ten.
8 out of 10

It appears that the Epiphany has an 06 freak or freak jr, having shot the freak jr on a dragun TES, several spyders, plus an Ion and an 06 freak on an Ion. I would say that the barrel would be well above average as were all the freaks that I have used. Any kind of freak would not be your average stock barrel.
You dont have to shoot paint to get a feel for how the marker itself works. Mainly, the barrel, bore to paint match, and paint quality determine how accurate the marker will be. And as for an 8, thats right about where an upgraded ion clone deserves to be.
quote:Originally posted by Palfguy i really don't count this as testing. you really haven't done anything at all with the gun, and you have your little "oh nothing diserves a 10" thing, well nothing diserves a crap review either.
why you gotta be like that, its the only review one can make for the gun as of now, chill out bro...
Dispute: B.S. review, never actually fired it, dry fired only, gave it an 8 becuase "cause i didnt get to see how accurate it was, and nothing deserves a ten." which is bull: accuracy isn't too dependant, more based on the barrel and paint, and also, if nothing deserves a 10, then why have 10? this person should not have bothered writing a review on a product he never used.
Oh my goodness...you people who are "disputing" his review need to get a life, He clearly stated at the beginning that he only dry fired it at cup, and also, he was only reviewing on what he could review for dry firing, that being how it felt when air was running through it. And besides, disputes should be for something that is clearly inaccurate, and since there are no glaring inaccuracies, save your disputes for someone stating that a brass eagle blade is the fastest firing gun on the market...

^^^knows what he is talking about
he stated in his review that he only dry fired it. you can tell a lot from dry firing it. accuracy depends on paint to bore match and a few other small factors. this review doesnt deserve a dispute. but i will throw in a call for an edit once you shoot it with paint. also he is correct nothing deserves a ten unless it is absolutly perfect right out of the box and nothing i have used or seen used is like that.
A lot of you guys make me really sad for the future...since when does there have to be criteria to review your experience with a marker. Is there a pb-review bible somewhere that lists minimum time, years of experience, and other qualifications to post here? and no offense but if your buying a marker based on a website review, and not testing it yourself, then you might want to re-think your strategy. This gun hasnât even been released yet, and heâs probably one of maybe 5 people that read this crap thatâs actually held the gun. So lay off a bit and take the review for what its worth. And if anyone here can give me a marker that has never had problems, and needs zero upgrades (not even a feed neck or barrel, or drop), then that is a gun worthy of a 10. I have yet to see one.
