Review: I've been using this marker for 2 years now with over 20k balls shot and it's only let me down once. The Board on the E-grip had to be re-soldered. A lot of people complain of it being an air hog and with HPA it is, only getting 8-900 shots on a 72ci 3k tank, but with all day air and a LARGE CO2 tank no problems here. The better board (APE) would improve reliability I believe. It gets heavy if playing speedball so snap-shooting is tricky. I plan to add a QEPH and Vortex mod for the Cyclone to improve the feed.
Conclusion: Great for Milsim/woodsball and is good for new ballers because of reliability and ease of basic maintenance. Good buy, there are cheaper markers, but still a good deal.
