Paintball
Experience:
2 years
Similar
Products Used:
SL74, 06 Ego, Etek, Bobby Long Timmy :), Spyders, WG65, Tippman 98/A5, Triad and many other cheap markers!
Marker Setup: Empire Reloader or Evo3, jds, cp hpr, clamping feedneck, Evil Pipe Kit, and a drop forward
Strengths: Light, shoots fast, durable
Weaknesses: Replaced stock LPR with JDS (+/-1 fps)
Review: After loving woodsball and my WG65, I decided the WG was a bit to heavy to lug around speedball courses. The ICD FS7 is light, fast and accurate.

Weight:
Around or under 2 lbs...darn light for an 05 gun!

Speed:
Quick, quick, quick! The gun shoots ropes with little to no kick at all. If you do have a kick...adjust your hpr/lpr settings cuase you screwed up somewhere.

Accurracy:
Good paint...nails! Bad paint (Monster Balls that have been sitting around for months), just as good as any other paint slinger

Effeciency:
Well, not as good as the high end markers. I read the FS8 is suppose to greatly improve...but what the heck, I paid for all day air!

Durability:
Solid gun. I have had to glue the led switch in place and replace the lpr...but after a couple years of hard playing...I dont think that is too bad (and I am not gentle). It does, when she doesnt feel like working, leak air like crazy from the bolt. A little playing around normally gets her going quickly.

Sound:
Very quiet with no kick. Compare it to my etek, you cant even hear it.

Adjustments:
HPR and LPR are easy to adjust (and screw up if you dont know what you are doing). It has a Quick Release for field stripping (every field I go to says "wow, that's cool." Extremely easy to take a part and reassamble.



Conclusion: Overall, a great little gun that can compete against the big boys. The FS8 has a higher cycle rate/ROF and better effenciency...but the FS7 is a great marker!
