None for an entry level marker
I am a 47 y.o. newbie. I thought that paintball would be something my 16 y.o. son could do together. So we wanted a good entry level marker, because we didn't want to get too much invested encase I ididn't enjoy playing. One day of indoor speedball and I am hooked. The Mokal VX 2K3 performed very well. I was amazed at how straight I could shoot even at long distances. I marked a player with a 50-60 foot shot. The marker is light and easy to carry. It also shot very fast. My son could double trigger as fast as some electronic markers.
Update: Wow is this Mokal great. The double trigger is great. After just a few uses I can shoot as fast as many of the electronic markers. I am even more impressed with how it is made. Most of the other entry level markers have plastic trigger frames. These are all aluminum. Wow is this marker easy to break down and clean. I chopped a ball-cheap paint-and I was able to strip it down. clean it and put it back together without missing a round (less than 10 minutes).
When we chrono the markers, I'm amazed at how much easier the Mokals are to adjust than some of the other markers.
09/06/07 update: The Mighty Mokal rocks! Played many times now. This marker is really reliable. With the CMI barrel it shoots straight. I can put paintballs through the ports of most forts or castles at 50 feet.
For the price I think this marker is ever bit as good as a Tippman Custom 98 that is right out of the box (my son has experience with these), but it is 1/3 the price. It's all aluminium and pretty sturdy. Great value for the bucks.
10 out of 10
