Experience:

Products Used:
Tippmann 98 Custom, Tippmann A-5, Smart Parts Ion, 2 Smart Parts Shockers. Tippmanns don't compare to the speed of an Epiphany. Stock Ions are not as fast or as accurate as Epiphanys. No ion trigger is smoother than the Epiphanys. Epiphanys don't chop balls like the Shockers and are just as fast as the Shocker. Epiphanys are less as expensive and just as good as Shockers.
Marker Setup: Smart Parts Epiphany, Q-Lock Feed Neck, 360 QEV, DXS 48ci 4500psi nitro tank, VL Evlution.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Definitely a Q-Lock Feed Neck, 360 QEV, Freak Inserts, CP or Dye Regulator, Vertue Board. That's all that is needed.
Strengths: Fast, Light Weight, Awesome Looking, Smooth Trigger, Accurate, quiet, Grip frame fits your hand.
Weaknesses: Regulator isn't very consistant untill you use it for a while.
Review: The Epiphany is similar to the Ion. The Epiphany is all what the Ion should be and should have been. The Epiphany has almost everything that you would want in a high end stock gun, with out the high price tag. Everyone that gets an ion wants to buy a different barrel, get an ASA and drop, smooth trigger, body kit, feed neck, bolt, and put as much electronic crap into the grip frame as they can. Smart Parts saw this and came out with the Epiphany.

Its Got:
-Light Weight Magnesium Alloy Grip frame & Body kit with a durable rubber overlay.
-Smooth ball bearing trigger with a 3 point adjustment, made with the same metal.
-A lower metal Feed neck with 3 O-Rings
-New Epiphany board with single tap on
-New easy on & off button
-Freak Jr. Barrel front & back and one insert
-Metal regulator sleeve
-Smart Parts dove tail ASA
-The grip frame has dove tail ASA mounts for direct ASA mounts to the frame.
-Light Weight Smart Parts Fire Bolt for less recoil
-Firing chamber inserts for adjustable firing pressure

What more can you ask for.
I have found this gun to be very reliable and have had only minor problems with o-rings that were easily replaced.
Conclusion: I think that the Epiphany is great! While I used to be popping balls and squeegeeing with my Shockers, while using my Epiphany I never have to even take a squeegee out on the field with me because I have yet to break a ball. I have never been any more happier with a paintball gun than I have with my Epiphany. Because the Epiphany is so light, small, fast, & accurate, I have found my opponents in the dead box in a short amount of time.
