Review: I was one of the first 5 people in Iowa to own this amazing marker. and as so, I love to show it off. People are amazed to see this light weight, fast, new marker.

Personally I like how the PMR has no LPR for me to mess up, i had a friend that screwed up his marker with messing with the LPR. I also like the one piece bolt, it allows the less of a chance for the bolt to leak air.

Definitely get an On/Off ASA as this will help you keep your O Rings in tact on you air tank. However you will want to get a new macro line when you do this as the old one is slightly too short to fit (this will cost about $2 for the macro line, no biggie).

I did however have one problem.
-I had to replace the board with another stock board. It stopped shooting for one game in a tournament, and my team helped me get it shooting again, but at home it stopped. So I took it into the place i bought it from (ICU Paintball) and they took care of everything within a week. i got a new board with no expense to me, and the new board has been doing great.

This marker can shoot ropes, and I mean ropes. You can easily pin a guy in a bunker for a good minute just by unloading on his bunker for a few seconds. The intimidation behind this marker is enormous, use it with extreme prejudice the first games and your opponents will be shaking in their pads the rest of the day.

-- NOTE: If you plan on purchasing a UL Frame--
---the UL Frame is NOT lighter, but its not a lot heavier, just don't go out buying it because you think you're going to get a few more ounces off. Buy it because it looks cool and you will want an upgraded board, which with the UL Frame you can get a wider variety of high end boards.

-NOTE-
the stock board is NOT a bad board, i just had to say that i had one problem with it, but that's all. there are plenty of modes of fire, and its actually a nice board to keep.
Conclusion: For $400 this marker is amazing! its almost up to par with the PM7 (a $1,000 marker).
I have gotten a ton of respect rollin this gun in the back field, as well as the front, and a lot of people loved the gun at the tournaments.

The Proto Matrix Rail is a MUST BUY! unless you can spring for the PM7 or DM7.
