Review: Well I eventually got the chance to take this oldskool bad boy out, just as I had brought it, with 16" Dye Ultralight Titanium barrel, stock everything else, and below is what I thought of it, do bare in mind that this is my 1st electronic marker.

Well I was surprised by how light the marker was in comparison to the others I had used in the past. It shot consistant over the crono, only differing by 2-5 fps. I was also surprised at the ammount of paint I shot in the 1st game without realising it as the trigger was so light. It felt comfortable to hold, as you can brace it well on the tank and front, which also prevents the barrel waving around. It's also very quiet even compared with the other markers that were being used on the day.

I brought it 2nd hand (obviously as the marker was released over 5 years ago), and it was pretty cheap (£75 inc. postage), so its a great marker for budget baller's like myself (student jobs dont pay well).

There are only a few things that let the marker down, that was the fact that you couldn't double tap the trigger with fore and middle finger alternating, even after tinkering with the trigger, but it didnt really bother me and I shot with both in unison, still racking up a fast rate of fire, if I remember correctly 11bps so the crono said. Also the only other thing that bugged me was the fact my hopper sat loose in the feedneck, but I suppose it was more my hopper that the marker as I do belive that it had been modified down. I also thought to look how to change the battery incase it dies on me, its a bit trickier than one would think and in comparison to more modern markers, you have to remove the hand grip and then remove 4 screws to seperate the bottom and top half, and tada, the battery, change and then put it all back, only really a 2 min job tho.
Conclusion: Tho it may seem that I have written more negitive than positive is because I find it easier to complain (don't we all?), but really its got alot going for it, and the fact the guys on site deem it "oldskool" really gets you some style points!
