Review: So I've shot the Fusion on countless occasions, and I loved it.

Strengths:

Customer Service- First off, I have to mention this. My god, they are amazing. I emailed DP late at night, and they responded back within 1 hour. They are on top of things. My gun was not working out of the box, and they fixed it up ASAP and had it shipped to me next day service so I can have it for my tournament! AMAZING. They truly have the best customer service ever. I am glad I own a gun made by a very satisfying company.

Barrel- very nice for a stock barrel. It's a 2 piece, and accurate. The newer batches have a .690 bore

Trigger- I cut the spring in half. So it's super smooth and super light. I just dont prefer blade triggers though. I like scythes

Efficiency- It's good, Im getting about 1700 shots off a 68/45(OPR at 250 and LPR set enough to shoot at 285fps)

Stock features- Comes with a clamping feedneck, on/off ASA, spring detents, and breakbeam eyes, that's good

Milling- Sleek, smooth, clean. More than you would expect in a $375 gun

Price- $350 for the V1's, and $375ish for the V2. Not bad at all

Weight- God damn it is light as hell.

Eyes- It has breakbeam eyes stock, which is good. I have yet to chop.

LPR- at least it has one. My old ion didnt.

Quality and Shooting- Very well made, very reliable. I have yet to have a problem with it. And the gun shoots smooth like butter

Simplicity- No hoses internally. Very simple design, and very, very, very easy to clean.


WEAKNESSES:

Board- The V1 Fusion's only have 15bps and 20bps semi, along with 20bps and 15bps PSP. No dwell adjustments, no debounce, etc. I understand simplicity, but it's a bit TOO simple. The V2 just added 6 more modes(8 total), all with a 25bps cap. Nothing special

Invisible screw features- For those that don't know, that's the screws that connect the grip frame to the body. It's creative how the screws are inside the frame, but they can get annoying when reconnecting the frame with the body. My simple solution: Partially screw in the screws and slide them back into the slots to make things easier. Just an annoyance, nothing big or performance affecting..

Trigger- I hate blade style triggers. Scythes feel better. Even though I cant shoot as fast with a blade, I can still rip on the gun. This is my personal preference, and the new hyper color kit has a new trigger that is more scythe style.


If you need a fusion....


madmaxpaintball.com is the best way to go.


Conclusion: Overall, I think this gun is great. The price is amazing. You might not like how the board doesnt have all these settings that high end guns have, but it's ok. The gun works at an optimal level to not have dropoff or shootdown without dwell adjustments. Scenario Dreams and Virtue are making boards.

The fusion is more of a performance marker than a looker, but it looks good enough, and for $375. Wow, truly a high end at a mid end price.

I say get it.

I give it a 9/10 because nothing' perfect.
