Review: I have been using the Xonik frame for quite a while, and I have never had any major problems with mine, it took me a bit to get it set to shoot to its best potential, the stock board is stuck at 16, but how often do you need to shoot more than that honestly,a nd how many people are legit to shoot that fast with their fingers? I have hit 17 with my zero B, still has the stock trigger,a nd has absolutely NO bounce, but the stock board is really bouncy, but that's how the E1 was also. I used the 1.06 version, the 1.26 is absolute crap, because you cannot adjust it...

here is the basic lowdown...

Pros:
Fast - 16 is as fast as you will ever need to shoot
Light - the frame itself seems to be lighter than an E1
Looks - I personally think the Xonik is a very hot frame
Upgradable - you can drop in a Zero B or T board if you feel the need
Very easy to use with the LCD
Eye - I have never chopped because of the bolt, only because of a bad ball in the barrel, you just have to set the eyes right to get them to work properly
Solenoid - The front noid is the exact same noid as used on an E2
Modes - Auto mode is very handy when setting the settings on the gun because you can see if you are getting shoot down at full rate of fire, or is you are getting a large amount of blow back.
Cheap - These frame because of their universal hatred are very cheap, and work just as well!
Battery Life - it si much better than an E1, I can get about 3 days worth of play out of one battery, and leaving the battery in the gun won't kill it overnight.
Consistancy - When I was using the Xonik board with the Mq, I got super consistancy, around +-2, so the electrical output is very consistant

Cons:
Looks - Some find this frame to be ugly
Popularity - This frame is so unpopular, I get many noses turned up to it, but when you light them up, they seem to respect it as being a decent frame after that.
Small trigger guard - I like it, because I shoot with my fingertips, but some hate this if you shoot with the backs of your fingers.
Grips - They are just plain ugly, but comfy
Eyes - They are a different type, so you have to have Xonik Eyes to make them work, thing to know when upgrading to a different board...otehr than that, they work great!

That's all I can think of at this time

That's honestly it
Conclusion: I definatly recomend this frame to annyone who is willing to put in the time to get it to shoot with their marker properly, otherwise they will have problems, and contribute to its bad reputation which it dosn't deserve.
