Upgrades:
If anything, get the board upgraded for $25. There really isn't much this gun needs, MAYBE a trigger when they come out with some aftermarket ones.

Weaknesses: Nothing.
Review: I bought this gun after Christmas with the money I used from selling my A-5. This gun is fairly new, but I've heard only good things about it. The packaging it comes in is very nice. Foam casing for the gun, barrel, macroline, and allen wrenches, I was impressed so far. Looking at the gun, its very nice. The milling is great, and the anno is perfection, I wouldn't have it any other way. Out of the box, the trigger isn't the greatest, but it doesn't have any side to side play. After some adjustments, it rocks. Its very easy to adjust, just grab so allen wrenches and adjust is above the grips. Once getting the trigger set up, I go to dryfire. While shooting, there is very little kick, I'd say about as much kick as an Ion. After ripping on semi, I tried out some ramping. Its very easy to change the modes, just remove the grip and theres two switches. The first switch is for 15 or 20 bps cap, the other is for ramping or semi. Ramping is awesome, shoots so fast and you hardly have to do any work. Those were my first impressions. Today, I took it out to the field. Threw my Egg on there, took a while to get it going with the clamping feedneck. The stock feedneck is perfect, its not too high, but not too low. While clamping, it takes some muscle to get it in because for me, it was pretty tight on my Egg. Well I take it out to the chrono, doesn't shoot at first. Make sure the on/off is on, gun is on, hopper is on, everything is set. I took 3 shots, and I was done. They went something like 286, 282, 284. Out of the box consistancy, that is outstanding, much better than my old A-5. Throughout the day, this gun never let me down. It can lay down ropes very accurately with the stock barrel. I don't think its something that needs to be replaced soon, as the bore size is .690. The whole day, I think I had 2 barrel breaks, no chops. The breaks were probably due to bad paint, and a quick squeegee through the barrel fixed that. The gun shot like a dream all day, have had no problems yet. One bad thing is that the gun is a little loud, I came from a Tippmann with CP 1 piece and I can say the gun is loud, probably as loud as my old Tippmann. I only notice the loudness when I dryfire though, in the middle of the game I can't really tell. Also the inside of the body where the bolt pin touches is scratched up, I'm contemplating sending it back and getting a new body or something, but that was probably just the gun I had.

Looks-10
Packaging-10
Ease of maintenance-10
Speed-9
Originality-10
Customizability-8
Accuracy-9
Size and weight-10

Don't know what that averages, but I say 10.

***Edit***
So I've been having some problems, along with the bolt pin scratching the inside of the body my detents keep popping out causing double feeds, chops, breaks, etc. I had to rearrange my detents numerous times throughout the day, however an email to DP solved all my problems. They called me, and I'm sending my whole gun to them to be fixed, they said that it takes them about 1 day to fix it and then send it back. Customer service is excellent, it doesn't change my rating.
Conclusion: Highly suggest this gun. If you're considering getting a Promaster, just save up a little bit and get the Fusion. The Fusion is an awesome gun all around, I love it. I call her Tiffany.
