Less than a month3 of 5 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
-dm's (almost as good; fs8 was a little lighter and had less kick and no noise),
-egos (fs8 wins on balance and smoothness and way wins on quietness; ego is a little -faster and a tad bit lighter, and it has the name),
-pmr (it felt cheap though i though it was kinda nice; no where near fs8),
-angels (fast but super heavy and loud; fs8 wins),
-shockers (friend's was fast but always broke),
Marker Setup: Black FS8 with blue accents
hybrid grips
upped trigger
upped feedneck
cp reg
proto asa
proto on/off
protto 2 piece barrel

halo b

limited crossfire stubby 51ci 3k psi
reg- makes balancing it so much easier
barrel if you are into that- stock is ok
board to nox??? tho i think i will just send mine in to get it flashed to the full 5,0 predetor code. stock is awesome tho.
Strengths: Super light
No kick
Super fast
balanced weight
Really small
Weaknesses: Balancing regs is sometimes tricky for people who are lazy. Not really a weakness though.
Review: ok well ive really been wanting one of these beauties for about a year and i finally picked one up for 175 off ebay (i know it's unbelievable- the seller misspelled the name:P)
anyways i haven't really shot it yet so ill update this after i play in a few days.
but as soon as i ordered it i had a constant flutter in my heart- something ive never experienced in relation to a purchase of a paintball marker before. as the days rolled by i thought i would die from waiting.
then one day i walked in from work and i saw the package. i really actually shrieked. i picked it up and though everyone says this about this gun it was totally true- i though for sure that he had the gun shipped in two boxes and only half of the gun was in the box because the box felt so light.
so i ran over to a chair and ripped open the box then as my head pounded from all the adrenniline i reached inside and pulled out this beauty. o my word i seriously went running around the house shoing all my family it then retreated to the chair while my bros begged to hold it. i carefully put the nice 2 piece proto barrel on. looked awesomw and the black matte color matched perfectly. then i tried to turn it on. for some reason my mind was goin wacko cause for seriously 10 or fifteen minutes i couldn't find the on switch.
im not that dumb.
just i was exited.
i even put th marker down and had to come back after a break because i was getting a headache from holding my breath while trying to find the on switch.
finally i found it under the back. it was clear so that's why i couldn't find it (it was a dark ro om and i have fingers like sausages).
so i turned it on and messed with the settings. this this is sooo fast with the stock board. big plus. comes with predator board not some silly stock board.
i only had tiny bit of air in my tank so i only got a few shots out but it had no kick and was silent and was accurate. super.
the feeneck held my halo like a rock.
with the stubby it is soooo tight. one of my friends complained that it was too tight of a setup for him :P.
and i like it seriously more than an ego, more than an angel, WAY more than a pmr (yes a ul'ed pmr), and it beats a dm6 by a bit.
for all of you with macdev cyborgs and stuff this will not get as good efficiency but will get a good 1600 shot off a tank. - this is what was the greatest weackness in previous models (way to go for fixing this icd!!!)
by the way the fs8 and cyborg are my 2 favorite markers.
it kills a shocker.
sorry sp lovers.
and for all you nb's that think TA ION ROKS!!! don't even show the tip of your head.
and i love how nobody has them because they spent the would be advertising money to make this marker better than more expensive markers.
the one problem is that everybody thinks icd is junk.
i tell you- shooting is believing.
so try it and if you ever see the guy at Camp Pendleton with a blue jersey and a blue/black fs8 with a yellow stubby tank cover and a blue halo with dye stickers feel free to come over and shoot my little beauty after you've wiped my paint off your mask.
Conclusion: OK- you should get this gun if you ever liked anything about a dm or pm, or if you like small fast quiet markers. Because this is the one. if you are into air sipping guns like the cyborg then you might not take to this one, but it is actually pretty good in air efficiency.
Oh- they are super cheap.
They are definitely the best deal on the market today.
Oh- you'll be the only one on your field with one (at least for the first week- then everyone else will want one). "What is that- can i shoot it?"
