Paintball
Experience:
1 year
Similar
Products Used:
Eclipse Ego6, 7, ICD Freestyle 8, Ion

Egos are just plain cool, they perform better than the Fusion, but are also more expensive **EDIT** at this point in time, i'm sure you can find a used Ego6 that costs only a little bit more than a new Fusion.

The Freestyle I've used is effing amazing. Best gun I've ever used, so yeah, it performs better then the Fusion (but you better know how to tech one of these, or you're screwed; lot's of maintenance)

Fusion > Ion hands down. Fusion is a little more pricey, but with the amount of ups you're going to need to make your Ion decent, you may as well just get a Fusion.
Marker Setup: -DP Fusion
-v2 board
-CP Rail, CP On/Off
Recommended
Upgrades:
New trigger if you don't own the LE version, possibly a new on/off.

And once Virtue releases its Fusion board, get that, too.
Strengths: Very easy to maintain, great out of box.
Weaknesses: Low resale value, not many upgrades **EDITED**, loud, and has a bit of kick.
Review: pros:
-inexpensive
-great out of the box
-fairly accurate stock barrel (Draxxus Blaze and Rec-Sport)
-well-made, very sturdy
-easy to maintain (just pop out the ram cap, wipe down, and lube up; also clean the regs every once in a while, look at the website below for tips on how to disassemble)

cons:
-somewhat heavy
-kick
-loud
-low resale
-not many upgrades **EDIT** so, i pretty much fail here. the Fusion does have quite a few ups going for it; aftermarket rams, bolts, regs. yeah, i'm a nub.

not sure what else to type, except if you have any trouble cleaning or teching a Fusion, go to http://www.fusionowners.org/forums/
Conclusion: This is an excellent startup marker. If you're new to the sport, and you want a great gun, or if you want a reliable back-up, get this.

This gun wieghs a shy over 2 pounds. Are crazy or just plain stupid?

by "somewhat heavy," i mean that it is heavier compared to an Ego or an FS8.

as for the "no kick" comment, i guess i'll have to agree (if we're comparing a Fusion to a 98).

isn't loud? are we talking about the same gun here?

the resale value of this gun is low when compared to many guns since it's not as popular as anything from BL or PE. less popular means less people want it, meaning you're gonna have to drop the price pretty low.

and "UPGRADES GALORE?" are you crazy or just plain stupid? can you find an aftermarket reg for this gun? no. how about triggers? nah. bolts? nope. boards? only ones i've seen are from Scenario Dreams, Virtue has yet to release theirs. barrels? well duh, it's a friggin barrel. you're gonna find a lot of these. same thing goes for ASA's.
