Review: So I ordered this marker about a week ago and got it just yesterday. The fist thing I noticed is that I needed a rail, on/off and a macroline hose to test this baby. I already had all I needed so it didnīt take long for me to dry fire in my backyard.

Ok, I just got back from my local field and after a lot of ropes of paint I must admit that this marker is by far the best investment Iīve ever made, it shots great out of the box. Here are the pros and cons that I found in this marker outside and inside the field.

Pros:

LOOKS: I find this marker very appealing, the first second I saw it up-close and personal, I knew I made the right decision.

CONSISTENCY: Considering the regulator was not broken in, I believe that getting in the chrono 270, 270, 270, 275, 272... with white box paint... itīs more that I can ask for, seriously

EFFICIENCY: I could not get an exact reading on this, BUT, I think I was getting about 1200-1400 shots per 70/4500 fill (maybe if I mess with the settings I can get more?)

SPEED: I really donīt have fast fingers, and the trigger it comes with has some side to side play, but I could easily reach 9-10 shots per second in semi with no bounce. Shooting ropes is VERY EASY.

ACCURACY: This marker is DEAD accurate, it puts ball after ball in the same spot most of the time (I used old white box paint). Some say the barrel sucks, but in my experience today, I can say it holds together pretty well for a stock barrel

FEEDNECK: It comes with a twist lock type one. It is very reliable, one downside is that I had to sand a little my halo for it to fit but is ok now, and some people may find it a little tall (comparing them to no-rise feed-necks), I play back so I really donīt need to be super low profile...

TRIGGER GUARD: Comparing it with my shockers, this thing is huge, which adds to comfort, very nice.

EYE SYSTEM: It uses break beam eyes, has some options you can choose from like dry-firing (eyes off), delay (if no ball is detected, the marker shoots slowly to prevent chops), and force (if no ball is detected, it wonīt fire, period.)


CONS:

BOTTOMLINE: It doesnīt come with one

TRIGGER: If I were to choose between upgrading my barrel or my trigger, I would choose a new trigger (just personal preference, I really donīt like the trigger)
Conclusion: This marker is really great, I really think it is great for a back player, cause it doesnīt kick, shots very fast and consistent, Itīs dead accurate, runs on air all day and it lives up to its name
