Recommended
Upgrades:
If you like spring triggers you will not need any
However if you like magnetic trigger, like me, there is a mod on ebay for 9.99, so that is a simple and quick fix
Strengths: Light
Very minimal kick
Fast
Plenty of modes
Weaknesses: Feedneck would not firmly clamp on my vlocity without electrical tape.
Review: Well when I first received it I was very surprised at how light it actually was, and how small the bolt is. IT'S TINY. So, after shooting my friend's timmy, I thought that it would have a bit of kick and be kinda loud. However it was not. The kick was almost not noticeable and pretty quite. The only problem that I had was that it would not completely clamp on my vlocity, but I have a new feedneck coming today so that will be solved very quickly.

All in all I was very impressed by how it felt and shot, and to me it shoots about the same as a mini (they are both poppet systems so that is probably why). I do prefer how spool valve markers shoot (to me seems to be smoother), but that is not a fair variable to incorporate in it's rating. i am using it as my backup marker for now.

Just remember there are plenty of new markers out there so shoot all the ones that you are interested in, and if possible play a game with them. Then make up your mind.
Conclusion: Well for the money this it more than likely going to be one for the best buys, and because there was nothing wrong it it's performance, I give it a 10. Is there better out there? Yes. For the money? well there are pmrs, minis, ions, epiphanys and many other new markers out there. All of these would be about the same level. But i am not and I am sure that you will not be disappointed in this marker if you do purchase it.

That's right it's an open bolt. The F8 I mean.
Poppet is like the marq 6 or 7.

Poppet is like the marq 6 or 7.

the F8 is a poppet. any gun which contains a valve that uses a face seal is a poppet based gun:

spyder
tippmann
impulse
intimidator
ego
mini
marq
fusion
F8
etc.

Can you answer me a question?
im debating between getting an f8 or a invert mini.
im a front player and the deciding factor for me would be which gun is lighter (with hopper, barrel, and air tank attached)

also, which gun has less kick to it.
