Review: when I first got wind of this gun, I was intrigued. I've always shot Bob Long guns and knew that he produces quality products. actually mad a trip down to World Cup just to see this gun, among other things. Tried it at the BL booth, and was sold. They had it shooting reballs on NXL mode and that thing was ripping. And it was light, almost as light as the newer Egos. Came back the next day and bought a black one (black seems to be the most popular color). Even had Bob himself autograph the box. When I got back, used the gun a couple of times, the second time, I actually had a problem in the beginning. The gun wouldn't shoot but it turns out I adjusted the trigger too far out where it was not hitting the microswitch. (See, if only I had an instruction manual to follow). Otherwise it shoots well, fast light and efficient.
Conclusion: For the price ($550) you get a lot for the performance. Thats way below what the Egos, DM's , Droids are going for (not sure about the Protos or NXTs) . If you want a prettier gun, then maybe wait for the Vice to come out in a few days. But if all you want is performance then the Protege is your gun.
