Review: First of all in my short paintball career ive shot most of the top name guns in woodsball from begginer jt tac5 spyder mr1 pcs to tac amo ak47 bt delta elite and a5 and i must say i am truly impressed with the x7 this will be indept so bare with me . Im not new to guns or the sport of paintball but this is my first year of truly caring because of the advancement of the woodsball aspect of paintball respect to speedball but thats futuristic paintball and i know im gonna get flack for this but ( i hate when i see speedball guns at woodsball fields i just cring lololol) alright back to the subject the x7 yes the x7 im not a conformist in anyway but after hearing all the hype about tippmann and all the tipp heads i thought { u groupies} and one of my best friends had an x7 and a5 and i tested them and thought good but not the second coming until more knowledge of the performance of a paintball marker goes esp at a skirmish outting and my tac5 went down and i used my boys x7 w, c02 in the winter by the way at the time i didnt know co2 and the x7 dont mix but i was impressed now i wasnt convinced until doing some reasearch on youtube and saw this one unforgettable video this guy had a tipp a5 w/ resp trig and he shot that thing under water not just once but continuosly now mind u shooting from mud rain and lil snow yeah but underwater sheeeeeeeet lol i was sold tippmann here i come now mind u i own a couple of smith and wesson guns and i can call tippmann the s&w of paintball an american standard some say oh the a5 is more sturdy the x7 is cheap its made from plastic well im here to inform u that the weapons that are made for the military are made from polymer a light weight durable material one of the first weapons to go plastic was the glock in the mid 90s so yes it makes since for this material to be used on the x7 its the future and on the down side some of the custom parts are cheap but for the most part bearable on the performance side i suggest any paint as long as u upgrade ya barrel compressed air is a must i ve shot around 2 and half cases of paint before i decided to past judgement out of 5000 balls two broke and it was outside the barrell no cleaning has been necessary except routine oiling the cyclone feed system is great bye bye electro hoppers only up and downside is hopper looks great but not airodynamic enough u have to shake it sometimes so the balls drop in but no prob i use a bt delta elite hopper response trigger is the icing on the cake when i first started i always wanted that rambo look and feeling and with the tippmann name reliability and performance u cant lose now last but not least yes you will save money on batteries for your hopper and trigger use but trust me you will spend a lil more on air refills the x7 will gulp it to the fullest and as u get lower in air pressure you will be doing the single pump dance meaning click aim and fire the air system installed inside the x7 in ingenius but at some cost more air consumption but still briliant batteries are expensive and the field dont replenish them for you like a refill of air so this by far that alone makes this the winner by far and for the lil reasons of nuthins perfect is why a 10 wasnt given
Conclusion: I give it a 9 i have no complaint only extra upgrade i suggest is squishy paddles u never know how long the paints been sittin
