Review: Ive been wanting this marker for a very long time, and now it finally arrived. When I first took it out of the box, I noticed how shiny and beautiful it was. The feel of it was great, with its sleek, silver magnesium body. It came with a set of allen keys, 2 extra fire chamber inserts, a barrel bag, a manual, a Freak Jr w/ 693. insert and some extra o-rings.

The trigger just rocks. Plain and simple. It only goes back and forth, so theres no extra side to side "slop". You can easily go up to 13-15 bps semi with the trigger. The new on/off button is much easier to use than the Ion, where you had to hold it down hard, now its just press and go. I believe the Epiphany also operates at a higher pressure than the Ion.

The barrel is great, especially since it comes stock. The SP Firebolt is also included with the Epiphany, allowing you to achieve higher speeds with upgraded boards. The on/off asa adds to the ease of use, allowing you to turn your air off and make the marker safer when not in use.

Aside from the many pros of the Epiphany are the cons. The Epiphany is a little bit heavier than most high end markers. This really isnt a problem unless you have a steel tank. The feedneck is also a little bit of a problem, since it doesnt clamp and has the tendancy to come unscrewed with larger hoppers (ex. Empire, Halo B.) An easy fix with a new clamping feedneck.
Conclusion: Overall, its a great speedball maker, used by pros such as Team Ultimate and Angel Fragoza of Dynasty. It is much more than a "metal ion" as many have called it. Its a very nice looking marker and will never let you down.
