K-Red Monday, April 23rd, 2007
Period of
Product Use:
3 months
3 years
Products Used:
Various Spyders. Not much of anything else worth mentioning that uses electronic triggers.
Marker Setup: Core gun, bottom-line tank placement, Venturi bolt, EVIL Detonator regulator, power-fed hopper, the rest of the parts are fairly stock. I removed the sight rail because it looked silly on a vertical feed marker.
A regulator is a must. It's not very consistent without it. It has frozen up on me when I got it and just used it with vertical bottle placement (Kinda stupid, but I was just trying it out then).
Strengths: Reasonably fast
Easy to disassemble
Not real heavy
Weaknesses: It needs some upgrades to be usable
Angel users mock you
Review: I bought this marker used for $60 from a friend. Naturally I had to mod the crap out of it and then fix the cup seal to make it shoot (Not the marker's fault really).
When all was said and done I had a working marker that functioned wonderfully. The E-Force grip doesn't feel like anything special, but it's plastic construction does reduce the weight of the marker noticeably, and shifts the balance of the marker upward where it's countered by the tank. ROF is nice if you like wasting paint, but is great for those split-second follow-up shots.
I've never shot anything but CO2and cheap paint through it, but it handles that quite well. Before I had the regulator in there, it would freeze up from shooting too fast when I tested it, but that isn't quite a problem anymore. I am surprised that it hasn't chopped a ball yet. I changed the stock blot to a venturi bolt, and only noticed the accuracy jump slightly (don't know why). It seems to get better air efficiency as well.
People seem to command you to get a barrel upgrade for this, but I don't really see anything wrong with the stock barrel. It's not that bad, and only spreads a whole lot after a good distance. Unless you're at the back laying cover-fire in speedball, I can't imagine changing the barrel.
Using this in woodsball is just wrong. It's too shiny, and the speed of the marker is sacrilege for the back woods. This is only my opinion though, take as you like.
Conclusion: If you've never tried speedball before, but would like to see how it stacks up I would get this. It's also nice to use when someone brings an A-5 to a woods game, and brags about how great they're doing.
Overall, it works nicely.
8 out of 10
