Paintball
Experience:
3 years
Similar
Products Used:
Tippmann 98, Spyder Clones , neither even come close to comparing with the Tac-One
Marker Setup: AGD Tac-One
Ricochet G2K Hopper
PMI Pure Energy 68/4500 Compressed Air Tank
CP On/Off Drop Forward
Recommended
Upgrades:
-Battery-Operated Hopper or QLoader for faster feeding
-ULE Trigger kit to shoot faster
-Barrel, but not completely necessary (The stock barrel is pretty good). I would recommend an Apex, Stiffi, or Barrel Kit.
Strengths: Durability
Easy to Maintain

Great Features
Weaknesses: Price (See Review)
Review: The Tac-One is such a great gun; possibly the best woodsball gun ever created.
-Durability- All you really need is 3-6 drops of oil in the ASA before and after each day you play
-Very consistent, a)Because you need HPA to run it, and b)Because of the X-Valve
-Performs great, outperforms Tippmanns by miles
-Looks very sleek , has a good intimidation factor
-Not heavy at all, my 68/4500 CF Wrapped Tank is actually heavier than my fully loaded Tac-One
-Level 10 Anti-Chop Bolt

I only have a gravity-fed Ricochet, and my Tac-One easily outshoots it, I'd guess the Tac gets around 8 bps, and the hopper only feeds about 4-5, but it's ok.

The only problem is the price, but it is so worth it. My Tac-One was $450, 68/4500 HPA Tank was $220, On/Off ASA was $40, and hopper was $10; it ended up costing $775, without the mask. Still, completely worth it.

***Test One***
---12/26/06---
-Wind Speed: 15~20 mph
-Temperature: ~60 F
-Skies: Overcast
-Paint: Mixed High Quality (1 Day old Paintball Store) and Low Quality (1 Month old Walmart)
-Target was a tree, about 2 feet wide, 120 feet away.
-Low amount of Arc
-Out of 10 shots, Target was marked 8/10 times. One of the misses was used as a gauge to measure where the paintball would go and how the wind would affect it.

***Game Day**
---12/24/06---
-Wind Speed: ~5 mph
-Temperature: Hot, 75~80 Degrees
-Skies: Overcast to Rainy back to Overcast
-Paint: Mixed High Quality and Low Quality, 3-to-1 ratio favoring High Quality
-Was 4-1 (Kills/Deaths) throughout 4 games with 3 vs 3
-I was able to hit one player, 100+ feet away, who was showing his body waist up in the 2nd level of a bunker. For some reason, a ball chopped (I think it was a bad ball), and I had to borrow a Tippmann. When using the Tippmann, I was so surprised at how bad the Tippmann was shooting - it was brand new and even had an upgraded barrel and HPA. I could hardly shoot 50 feet with the thing.

I have been amazed at how well his gun has worked so far.
Conclusion: I would definitely recommend this gun to any serious woodsballer. It is so great, I can outshoot Modded Tippmanns by so much. Definitely worth the money; once I get an Apex on this thing, it'll be unstoppable.

This isnt a dispute or anything, just a little note; The TAC-1 can get alot more than 8 bps. With someone who is used to the trigger and has fast fingers it is one of the fastest guns in the world.
