Review: Having recieved my custom pro for christmas, you can imagine i was itching to go and have a go. So a few days later, i rang round some buddies and headed down to my local field. When we finally got onto the field, i found this gun plenty accurate for the range we were at (about 20ft). I am more of an up-close and personal type player, so the accuracy didn't bother me much. However, as the day went on, i was picked as 'sniper' (in inverted commas, for obvious reasons). I was put in a tower and was relied on to pick off a few enemies. This was where the accuracy (or lack of it) started getting to me. After about 25 ft the balls started to curl off in random directions. I plan on adding an x-chamber and a new barrel when i next get a chance. By the end of the day i had put around 650 rounds through it and it had not chopped a single one!! I was astonished at this, seeing as the rental markers around were chopping faster than a high lumberjack.
Conclusion: In conclusion, i was very pleased with this marker, but the accuracy was an issue for me. Perfect for people just getting into the sport but it will require a few mods before i could give it ten.
