Review: Here's the story of a woods ball er who sees this on pb review and thinks it looks cool. I tried to buy Ariakon's and ect but they were too expensive. I just sold my a5 and my friend has a shocker, so i thought why not look into a high rate of fire gun, it looks cool so i looked on you tube for proto rail and some sweet videos popped up, if your looking into this gun try it look at the one that says proto matrix rail owners review (it helps) also look up 30 CPS ,the guy spelled it wrong ,this is the rail's going stock board 30 bps!!
I was like no way this is possible stock so i went to my bedroom and tried it IT WORKED. just set the gun to full bps rate, and put it on p.s.p ramp or the secret n.x.l full auto which is the 4th non listed setting.Try it if u don't believe me.

now to the rest coming from an a5 this is a feather. now my friends and I are fortunate to have good guns including an angel and a shocker n.x.t. This kept up no problem i usually keep it on nppl i think it is where it rebounds after 10 shots i think. I don't know how the stock barrel is but i heard its good, mine came with the ul, i recommend a dye ul though its dye what more do I have to say. the boost forward technology works too i can get a few more shots off with a tank. The accuracy is good but this was the first time i've used it
so after i get used to not looking down the gun with a sight it'll be a lot better. I used blaze field witch was good but i'm getting Marballizer paintballs soon and i will edit it as soon as i do. Durability this is a step from going from a a5 to this ,this needs regular maintenance, but when you get this you'll want to clean it and service it, its not much either just i overdo it because i take good care of my things. the bolt pops out with a twist of a hex wrench which makes it super easy to lube. I can get my bolt out faster than my friends a-5. but some guy is probably going to dispute this for that. remember i play woods ball in a woods by my house which is not a field with cut brush and such its still mostly forested and this stands up.
Conclusion: No more will i be scared to go to my local speed ball field. no longer will i be scared of my friends shocker, no longer will i be the runt of my friends with a base a-5. i might even start a speed ball team!. whether a beginner or expert, whether you play in the woods or in a speed ball field, whether you are big or small i highly recommend
this gun

yes partner he did spell it right its really easy to tell your not a noob but your barely experienced cps stands for cycles per second thats when the bolt makes a full cycle forward. this marker is durable but dont think the a5 isnt. you cant shoot it right out of water because you will fry the electronics with a rail you still have some more to learn but youll get there.

I knew what cycle was i guessed it was that but i thought noobs wouldn't understand. I know that a 5 are reliable just trying to state this gun is also. no one in there right mind would dip thier proto in a puddle but thanks for your input.
