Nothing is really required, most of the upgrades for this gun are just purely for bragging rights. But I love my ultralite and lucky board-NOX combo.

Weaknesses: In review
Review: Pros:

VERY fast
Beautiful performance
Major intimidation factor
Got mine for $700
Wicked accuracy (Almost B.O.B at the 'fifty)

Cons:

No hopper made today can keep up with a Lucky board-NOX combo
Difficult to find
Refs may stack the games against you

I got this marker a few months ago, and I can say that hands down, the $700 i dropped on it is the best used cash I have ever spent. Before I got even a single upgrade, I was able to shoot ropes faster than my upped vlocity could feed! when I showed it to my friend the next time we went out to play (i broke it in on a recball field, because our speedball field is closed on weekdays.) He was very impressed.

The very first game i played with my new marker, the ref saw my gun and asked what it was, he then stuck me on one side of the field with just my friend and a few other guys with Semi Spyders against a whole mass of little kids with rental 98 customs.

My angel performed beautifully, and our team massacred the opposition in just a few minutes with only one casualty.

My friend and I were surprised at how well the gun did. I was flinging paint so accurately that i was hitting exposed hoppers and even a barrel once (but that just could have been luck) After this first game he begged me to let him borrow it.

The Dark Angel is very easy to clean and maintain, and performed better in bad weather than even the Tippmann i normally use for recball. The day i played, as well as the next few days, we had first a dust storm ( i live in Arizona) then several days of hard rain. My little Angel never seized up, and it never broke down.
Conclusion: Only one hundred of these guns were ever rolled off of the assembly line, if you see one for sale, don't miss the opportunity. Buy it.
