Review: ok i bought mine new for $575, a total steal for an eclipse blade cocker, especially one with a clamping feed neck, qev's an awsome cradle drop and on/off asa.
The negative: the reg is a piece of crap, use it as a paper weight. when i cronoed i had spikes of +/- 50psi and an average of +/- 18. total crap. buy a dye hyper 2 reg and be done with it. the factory timing is not very good either so you should have that professionlly done unless you are expierinced with cockers.also its a cocker, so its load and and kickes like a mule, but thats a preference thing. this thing burns through air so expect to fill often or get a bigger tank. out of a 47/3000 tank with a fill of 2100psi i got about 500 shots. it also chews through batterys even with the power saving options, expect to change frequently.my problems may have all been related, i have heard that cockers dont likereloader b's or halo b's that much, and thats what i have, also the barrel is of a huge bore so most paint will be to small, so when you add a force feed hopper+ closed bolt gun+ paint to small for the barrel you get= karate chop action, but whats worse is that paint will role down the end of the barel in stead of fireing, then when a paintball does fire it hits the ball in the end of the barrel and bam...paint everywhere. lastly its a cocker so it isnt noob friendly. dont buy it unless you have cocker knowledge or enjoy a challenge.
The Positive: the best trigger i have ever used, it is possible to adjust it so that you can fire the marker by blowing on the trigger. in semi auto i can burn 14bps all day long and can burst at 18bps. and that's in semi auto.the eclipse frame is impressive and easy to use with more options then you could ever use. the lcd screen is a nice touch.
Conclusion: This is not a beginner gun, it is excellent if you get it running right, it is not an out of the box gone it takes time to set up well and needs some modifications. Its finicky and costs a lot to run, but as far as autocockers go, once you get it just right it really takes off. So even though my personal experience was bad im still giving it an 8, because i have seen then preform ungodly well for other people with right amount or time and mods.

Actually, for that size tank and it not being full, you got quite a few shots out of it.

Incase you didnt realise, all cockers will have quite a bit of kick, and they arent loud, unless your dry firind or shooting without your barrel... and all cockers will use quite a bit of gas aswell...
