Weaknesses: It only shoots 12-15 bps. Some people want more.
Review: I had recently purchased the Epic and began testing it write away. I couldn't believe how small and Compact it was. The sound was definitely quieter than allot of markers I've used. The accuracy was phenomenal. Every ball i shot seemed to hit the same spot over and over. The gun has no bolt so it has virtually no recoil. I chronoed it and shot five balls . 280fps +/- 4 . Not bad even considering I was using C02. It has a built in regulator that bleeds off any pressure spikes so no hot shots. I recommend using a anti-syphon if using C02 however. I also used compressed air with similar results . Only difference of course was a better recharge from shot to shot. It is a mechanical marker and it can't be turned into an electronic. So short stroking can occur, but the trigger adjustments that can be done make this a light and crisp trigger pull .
Conclusion: If you are looking to hit your target and do it quietly than get this product. If you want to shoot allot of paint in seconds then look somewhere else. This gun is so accurate you don't need to shot 20-30bps. Recommended for woods ball players for sure.
