Quest - shoots nice. frame and trigger > threshold's. but the threshy shoots way better.
remains - more efficient, lighter, feels slightly better, but while shooting, threshy feels smoother.
mini - not a chance.
fusion - heavier, frame feels meh. faster, more efficient. threshold shoots and feels alot better.
pm6 - smoother, less efficient, heavier. worse frame
ego6 - heavier, frame feels worse, but trigger is better. threshold feels a whole lot better shooting.
Lurker lube (feels better while shooting threshy then anything else)
barrel kit (only if you absolutely need one. the stock barrel is very nice)
Rendition Magnet Kit (the stock trigger is nice, but with this kit, it is absolutely frictionless.)
performance. weight. CS. stock features. board. looks. price. limited production makes me feel important.
Aftermarket Support, but the threshold doesn't really need it.
Ok. Ever since I first heard about this marker (before it's release), I've wanted one, yet never had the cash. but i found someone willing to do my quest + a few dollars for a lnib ocean blue threshold. I jumped on it.
speed - this marker is FAST. easily meets my needs and keeps up with my chipped vlocity junior. a friend of mine has a video floating around of it on ramp with a stock vlocity (i think) and it was goldwaved at 24 BPS. wow.
weight - 2.2 pounds with stock barrel, fully assemballed, reg, batter, grips, asa, etc. feels PERFECTLY balanced with my vlocity junior with paint, bottle, and un1tec
Looks - this thing is absolutely beautiful. Usually, i'm the person who you see with an ugly marker that shoots amazing (take my quest and remains for example. they shot really well, but many people thaught they were ugly as sin). But I have gotten MANY compliments on the looks of this marker. the milling is beautiful. the anno is flawless. and the colors look amazingin person. Plus, it performs as well as it looks.
Customer Service - OK. for the record, I HAVE NOT NEEDED TO USE DP FOR MY THRESHOLD THIS COMES FROM MY PRIOR FUSION. i had a problem with my fusion. i emailed DP and got a phonecall 15 minutes later. no exaggeration, just sheer excellence. fixed it right then and there on the phone. I also had a problem with my fusion's reg. i emailed them, got a phonecall the next day (i emailed them on a sunday). they sent me a new reg USPS priority. got it on wednesday, problem solved. brilliance.
stock barrel - the stock barrel is nce. a tad heavy. but it is a good 13 inch barrel with a .690 bore. it shoots really well, but i didnt like the weight or the length, so i bought a un1tec. much lighter and about an inch longer. i love it. both shoot REALLY well.
stock trigger - the adjustments on this thing are very nice. i have it set perfectly. also, i personally do not mind the opti switch. trigger shape is very nice too, easily hit double digit pps. I did upgrade to a magnet trigger (trigger kit available from Rendition paintball on Ebay). the trigger is literally frictionless and super fast. i love it. and for 13 dollars, you can't go wrong.
ease of maintenence - unscrew bolt cap. take out bolt. lube 4 orings that need it. put bolt back in. screw in cap. mow faces. that easy.
frame - the frame feels very nice. some people dont like the thickness with the grips on, but it feels very nice to me. very comfortable.
kick - what kick? i have found none when lubed with Lurker Lube.
smoothness (performance)- this thing is VERY smooth. little kick and feels gentle on paint. efficiency, i'm not sure of the numbers. deffinately getting over half a case on a 68/45 though. very impressed when shooting
price - 550 brand new. you can get them for cheaper barely used. shoots better then every marker i've owned, and damn near every marker i have shot. except a viking. but come on. its a damn viking.
this product is amazing. if you have the chance, buy it. for the price, it CAN NOT BE BEAT!!!
10 out of 10
