Review: Got this to upgrade from a spyder pilot acs. ive used it a few times now, and am pretty familiar with everything. for positive... i love the break beam anti chop eyes... very effective. i have tried to get a ball to break and cant do it. the bolt wont close untill it detects a ball. using this the gun fires at 20+ balls per second, and if you want to upgrade with the tadao board, you can pull off 30bps easy. make sure to get a loader to keep up! The rs outshoots my eVLution 2 with y board, im force to get a z board now. it runs on 300psi according to the box but i think its lower, based on the gauge on the side. and you can adjust all that anyways. the marker is very adjustable, with a three way trigger you can turn the eyes on or off, there are two separate wasys to adjust the psi going into the gun. the standard allen wrench style adjuster on the back is for fine tuning, whle the adjuster on the hose below the foregrip is for more dramatic adjustments. the marker is very durable, ive fell on it once and dropped it twice during play, not even a scratch, let alone a broken marker like my ACS did when i fell on that. dissasembly and cleaning is very easy, just an allen wrench tool and a phillips screwdriver are need. the delrin bolt slides right out the back. it shoots very consistent and accurately, even with the stock barrel though i reccomend an upgrade to a barrel kit. the feedneck is just great, will fit virtually any loader with ease. the trigger is very sensitive and adjustable, and fires in either a single shot or a three round burst. unfortunately it doesnt have full auto, but this isnt really neccesary because with the 3 burst it easily pulls off the 20bps. trigger has alittle side play, but not noticeable during play. marker is a bit heavy. build quality is wonderful. very ergonomic.
Conclusion: If you have the money, get an rsx, if not, get this and just upgrade it later. very good marker especially for the price. keeps up with way more expensive markers, the words are value and versatility.
10 out of 10

ok if a gun takes hpa thats doesnt mean its a strength, if the gun cant run on hpa, its a piece of crap

The ability to use BOTH is a strength, in case a field does not offer one or the other for refills, as some of the fields near me dont. one only has hpa, and one has only co2. i have both tanks on me always. and what if your hpa breaks, and you have only co2 availible to you? just stop playing? some cant afford hpa, but this is a sport for everyone, from pros to once a month players. the lack of objectivity and the "im better than you cause i got more money" players, THATS crap.

Hey jw, do you think that the rs is a better marker than an ion???

No, i think the ion performs the same but is lighter and slightly more reliable.
