Review: Nice entry level gun.

I bought 3 Sonix Pro, along with the VL Triad and Imagine so that a bunch of us could play. All guns perform equally. Let's face it...if you are looking at the Sonix Pro, you're not a pro and you are interested in recreational painball. The first ultra-cheap batch of balls that I had chopped around 1/50 in all of the above listed guns. The Monster Balls from Walmart haven't chopped a single ball since...I know because I clean all of the guns after our games. We have gone through 5 boxes each of 2000 balls.

The Sonix is maybe a little bit louder than the Imagine, but I haven't played in a game with anyone who had a gun so silent that you couldn't tell where the action was. I can't comment on the CO2 consumption; no one has run out of air yet in our 1/2 day series of games.

The Sonix Pro lacks the E-trigger, but few recreational games allow full auto. The E-trigger is a hassle if you don't need it, because when your battery goes dead your game is over (I've seen it happen).

I recommend it for what it is...a reliable, all-metal, affordable Spyder.

I think buying an entry level gun and sinking 5x the cost into accessories is rediculous. You really don't need to change this one up for some fun games.
Conclusion: All 3 of mine have been 100% reliable for 6 months. You don't need to upgrade to have a basic, though great recreational gun.
