Review: I absolutely love this marker! The way this marker is designed makes a lot of paintball players not like it, but I believe it can compete with any marker on the field. Obviously, the specs of an Ego, Dye, or Timmy are going to say otherwise. I will not tell you that this marker is better than any of those, but I will tell you it is a GREAT marker for the way I play. I am one of those relaxed type players that only plays two times a month and I am the one in the back shooting a couple ropes here and there. One thing I can say is that this thing is very reliable. Not only is it reliable, but I take care of it so well that when I play it seems like it has the speed of an Ego(I can thank my Lucky board for that), the accuracy to bust up some faces, and as light as an ion. I realize that the reason for me saying these things is because it isn't a stock VS2, but I can assure you that this has all the potential most paintball players could ask for.

With the balance valve combined with my reg I am able to operate my marker at 220psi, 280fps, doing 30 cps without skipping a beat. I also hope to be able to lower my pressure by changing the valve springs and polishing my striker. May be I'll even cup the striker.

My reason for that is because right now the noise level is not quiet where I want it. When I first got my VS2 it wasn't very loud compared to now. Actually it made a nice little *tink* noise. Not to loud and not to annoying.
Conclusion: Over all I see this marker as having as much potential as you are willing to give it. The balance valve was a great installment to this radical change from the Spyder line. At the end of the day if I compare enough, in some instances, I would take this over my PM6. If anyone has any input they would like to share with me I would be happy to talk about my VS2
