Review: I am starting the score at 5.

Barrel- What to say... It's so-so. It gets the job done. But, just go ahead and upgrade if you can. -1

Board- For a 140 dollar marker, the board is decent I guess. It is capped at 11 bps, which is fine for rec. It has 3 modes - tourny legal locked semi, semi, 3 shot, and full auto. If you don't have select fire SP will upgrade this for you. +2

ASA- Standard asa, no on/off, cannot expect at the price. 0

Reg- Long break in period, shot over 3 cases and it is now about 6 +/-. Not bad... +1

Bolt- Low force allows SP to sell the vibe cheap and still gets you no chops +2

Trigger- Long, but comfortable and light trigger pull -1

Body- light-weight, scratch resistant. Looks cool, cannot rate any higher.

Durability- Very durable, but cannot rate any higher.


Conclusion: The vibe is an overall great marker for the price. It is worth buying it.
10 out of 10
