Review: My buddy had been talking about this gun since it came out, so i was going to play at my local field, one weekend, and all i had was my spyder electra, which i wanted something with eyes, so that i can rail paint, so i was at my local paint shop, and saw the SLG on the wall in olive color, and said huh that gun looks nice, once i held it i said DAM that is light, only 2lbs 2 oz, pretty light, and i heard that they weren't all that bad of a marker, plus i didnt have alot of money to dump on a marker, plus i was going to put the virtue board on my spyder, but that was 130 bucks, so i just said aw what the hell i need to get a gun that is updated. so bought it and took it out to break it in, first time shooting it, i was busting balls every hopper fill, could not figure it out, i thought i had a lemon, so took it to the shop i got it from, and they checked the reg, and noticed that the factory settings was at 330 fps, so after the turned it down to about 275 fps. I was as good as gold, took it out to field of fire in Valencia, CA, and played 2 games of rec ball, first game i got 3 people out, not bad second game got 2 people out, only got shot 3 times, so 2 weeks later, went out to paintball usa in Acton, CA, first played hyper ball, gun did great, that weekend the gun did great except 2 times, first it happened in the dunes field, the gun pinched the bottom of the ball, before it entered the chamber, so then i was on the hyper ball field then again, pinched another ball, but other than that it did pretty good, first hyper ball game it was 7 vs 7, i got about 5 people out from back right, then hit snake and then bunkered guy at back center, it was a good weekend for me, and gun did pretty good.
Conclusion: I would recommend this marker to any person getting into speed or hyper for there first time, light, fast, and consistent, and good quality good for good price.
