Review: Well i just want to let it be known, my "experience" with this product has ben over the course of a few months. A friend of mine has had it for awhile, and i always paintball with him, so i see this thing in action. Secondly, another one of my friends has just bought it, and we installed it together, so i know this product pretty well IMO.

STRENGTHS:
___________

Easy To install: You don't have to be very mechanically inclined in order to install this. Remove your old grip and shove this one on. Its that easy. In fact, its harder to install the 9volt battery (remove the side panels on the grip and hook up the connecters to the appropriate ends) on the grip than it is to install it on your gun.
+4

Adjustable Trigger: Now i can't say that i know my way around in terms of speedballing, but from the guns that i have tried out, this trigger is definately at the top of them. I new this because i was actually able to walk this one. It is very easy to do so because of its sensitivity. This however can be adjusted to the users preferences.
+2

Speed: This grip is pretty fast. It has 2 speed settings: 10 and 13 b.p.s. Plenty fast for woodsball IMO and IME (in my experience).
+4

WEAKNESSES:
_____________

Lack of fireing modes: This is the only weakness IMO. I kinda wish that they had included a 3 round burst feature. There are only 4 firing modes:
10 b.p.s ramping
10 b.p.s auto
13 b.p.s ramping
13 b.p.s auto
Both ramping settings can be used as a semi auto feature, until you start walking the trigger, than it kicks in to full auto. Full auto is self expalnitory. However, there shoould be a burst setting. Both of my friends also commented on this after they bought the trigger. That is not to say that this product is bad, but burst is such a useful mode to use i a game. I am hoping that companies such as W.A.S and A.P.E will make boards for this grip in the near future to offer more firing modes and higher speeds.
-1

Conclusion: This is a great product for those of you who have a BT marker and want full auto capability. a good all-around product IMO.

well it is good. i have read reviews, and apparently this grip doesn't have a low battery indicator and stuff. but again, i only tested it, and from what i did get to experience, it is actually not that bad.

The best way to tell if the battery is low is that the light starts flickering. But there's no real warning as to when the battery is going to die.
