I just got this gun, and only got to use it once at a local field.. "HOLY CRAP!" were the first words that came from my friend's mouth. This marker is incredibly fast, efficient, lightweight, consistent, and VERY cheap. The trigger is just awesome, smooth right out of the box.. heck, everything is dang near perfect out of the box. No necessary upgrades needed. As stated, I have an LE and the RAPS on it makes it so convenient to turn air/ off. Had no problems with the detents, had only one chop all day that day but only because I forgot to turn the eyes on.. oops. That was when I realized the EASE OF CLEANING of this marker, simply a pull of the top pin and viola. Now of course, like I said I just got the marker and hasn't really been broken in yet and I'm already getting SUPERB performance results. I'll update this review as I use the marker more. BRB.
*EDIT - The gun is truly amazing, and with the board, bolt, grips, and much more upgrades coming out soon... *rubs hands*, "beware" to all the "high ends" out there.. this one's comin' coming from behind.
get it, get it, get it!!! why pay hundreds more when you can get a marker that performs just the same as the other high end markers? you won't be disappointed with this marker. Along with a lifetime warranty (Limited Edition only), affordable price, and Dangerous Power's OUTSTANDING customer service.. you can't go wrong. So go get one :) BIG thank you to Sean @ paintball 4 less. Shouts out to the Fusion family at www.fusionowners.org.

Maybe it's because I'm anal about the meaning of words, but this marker is not CHEAP! Inexpensive - yes. Cheap - no. Cheap has a conotation of being made poorly and that is not what this marker is. I like what you had to say in the rest of your posting and I hope you don't take this wrong. Keep the paint flying and your head down.
I agree with you handyman.. and you're right, the marker is not cheap.. it rips! what I meant was, to make it clear, was that compared to other high end ($1000-$1300) markers out there, this gun is "low priced"? heheh. "Cheap" does make it sound like it was poorly built but this gun is NOT poorly built. A lot of attention to detail was taken to make this marker and to where it is now. Thanks.
is this better than a Lasoya Promaster? go to this website www.fusionowners.org Dangerous Power has the best (IMO) customer service, and their products are incredible. To answer your question, it's all preference. I was gonna go with an FS8 but I asked myself why go for a marker that cost twice more yet performs the same if not better. Go to the website given, ask all the questions there and I can guarantee you that you'll get an answer before the day is over :). Good luck, oh and will you be using the same screen name? thanks, again.
Honestly, I was gonna choose the pmr over anything, but then I did more research. I didn't want a marker that required any sort of upgrading, nor cost an arm and a leg. I went to one of the walk-on games at a local field one day and I was having trouble with my spyder and fellow player handed me his pmr.. nice, it ripped.. but the trigger just felt totally funky to me. Went home did some research on it, found out that upgrading would still be required to have the pmr perform it's max. Then there was the Fusion. My only impression was "WOW", comes with everything already.. stock. It's really personal prefference. The pmr is a nice gun, don't get me wrong, but it just didn't feel right to me, like it was fragile or something. The Fusion on the other hand, had a nice feel to it. Just perfect IMO. You'd have to shoot one to understand. But it all goes down to what you prefer. Good luck and I hope this helps.
