Review: Picked up my Fusion NIB. First time shooting it was below freezing using paint that was a couple months old. Ripped through a bag of 500 no problem. No breaks, no hickups. Some of the more picky people will want to replace the grips and may not like the trigger, but for me they are just fine. Its not a spool valve so it does have a little bit of a kick, but hard to notice really. Very consistant, though the first time I played an actual game with it I did get some reg creep. Went up to about 400PSI before I noticed, though it did not seem to damage anything. After shooting through a case, the reg seemed to break in and the problem has not occured since. The eyes work wonderful. I have about 3 cases through it (Hey, I'm a woods baller!) with out a single break, and thats even using about 1000 rounds of the Wal-Mart stuff.

Update:
I have now had my fusion for a little over 6 months. Switched to a J&J Edge Elite barrel system and have since yet to break another ball. A fresh, high quality 9V will last me through an entire weekend, and maybe a few backyard games too. Gas consuptions continues to be stellar. Barrowed a faster hopper from a friend, and the ROF on 25 full auto really intimidated the walk-ons at my local field. Going back to semi, can't afford to keep doing that. She's got an appatite for paint. Currently 3 more team members have bought Fusion's since I got mine.
Conclusion: I would recomend this marker to someone who wants high end marker performance with out the price, and doesnt want an Ion like everyone else. Aftermarket parts are few and far between now, but more and more stuff is coming out and should be redilly available soon. The price is great too. 10 outta 10 cause I own one, though actually a 9.5 cause nothing is perfect.

Update:
OK, nothing is perfect, but for the price, this is about as close as you will ever get.
