Products Used:
Tippmann A-5
Strengths: Electropneumatic
No chops or breaks
Weaknesses: Feedneck
Battery rattle
Review: The primary reason I bought this gun was for the electropneumatic internals. I played a scenario once, and the paint was extremely thin. Everyone with Tippmanns was breaking paint. The SP-1 offers a "more delicate" delivery of the paintball and I proved this by shooting the same paint from the scenario and not breaking a single ball. Mission acomplished.
As far as the markers performance: it is a great alternative to the A-5, and just as reliable, it has the potential for good woodsball upgrades, the grouping is nice, and because it lacks springs and cocking handles, it is easier to maintain than the A-5. The SP-1 is a solid performer all around. The only thing I don't like is the location of the feedneck. It's right on the centerline just like a speedball marker and aiming takes a little getting used to. The battery rattle is easily silenced by sticking just about anything in the grip.
Conclusion: If this is your first marker, you have made a great choice. I use it as a back-up and a loaner to new people playing paintball.
