-Low Profile
-Lightweight
-Speed
-Board(Semi,NXL,PSP, Ranp, etc)
Weaknesses: -Feedneck

Review: Lasoya Promaster Specs:

-Dual gauge block and micro gauges for LPR (Low Pressure Reg) and HPR (High Pressure Reg)
-Custom anodized Vigilante HPR (different design than the other ICD markers)
-Speed Ramp Teflon bolt with curved top to further reduce paint breakage. Bolt also has ball detent grooves and bolt can be removed without having to entirely pull out the bolt pin
-Smooth low profile lightweight body
-Dust finish fade anodizing
-New style LPR housing and Ram Cap have Quick Clean grooves. The grooves make it much easier to do disassembly by hand, but also wipe clean with a finger tip. When playing X-ball you don't want to spend hours getting paint out of every nook and cranny
-Low rise feed neck
-New trigger
-New board functionality - far more adjustment possibilities including multiple firing modes and adjustable "debounce"
-Cut out in the grip frame to allow you to put the battery in without removing the frame side. (need to use metal sleeved brand name batteries like Duracell and Energizer, some rechargeable batteries have a thick plastic casing on the batteries that makes installation and removal tight)

REVIEW:
The Lasoya Promaster is a very good marker. The marker is lightweight, has a low profile, fast, the new vigilante reg surpasses the orignal reg on the original promaster, and the board has many functions such as (Semi, ramp, psp, nxl, etc) and is the same one used in the FS series markers.

Some weaknesses on the marker are minor and can be easily fixed or improved. The feed neck does not fit all hoppers, does not come with an asa, and the barrel is decent but can be easily upgraded. The main weakness of the marker is adjusting and programming the modes. But by looking at the manual on ICD's website this can be easily resolved.
Conclusion: The Lasoya Promaster is a very good marker. It can easily compete with "Higher, High end markers." Backed up by ICD's excellent customer service, reliabilty, and the current price drop to ($200-220) from ($500) makes this a steal. I give the marker a 9 out of 10 because nothing is perfect. =)
Rating:
9 out of 10
