Review: So I've had this marker for about a month. I've shot it some and it works really well. It's really fast, and the 3 burst works really well. The eyes work perfectly, and they don't diminish the firing speed. The only problem I've found is the feed neck. It needs an adaptor for a hopper, and that makes you a larger target to get shot at, but it's only a problem if you play speedball and they count gun hits. It gets up to about 20 bps and for the price of $150 at wal-mart it's a great deal. It also comes with a 1 year warrenty, which I also want to point out that if you use a regular 9-volt bttery to power the electronics, the warrenty is voided.


Ok so I just used it in a game for the first time. It was just me and my friend playing 1 on 1 woodsball. Out of 4 games, I won 3, and we're pretty evenly matched. My Spyder VS1 eaisly outshot his A-5. I never chopped / broke a ball, so the eyes worked fine. Overall, a very good gun.

**Another Update**

My friend who has the A-5 and I played again, and we decided to do a little test. He has a 20 oz. co2 tank with a shut-off valve. He gassed his gun up and turned the tank off. He was able to shoot 4 times before the gun couldn't recock. I tried the same thing with my VS1. I was able to shoot 30 times before it couldn't recock. This gun is obviously very co2/air effecient.
Conclusion: Overall, it's a great gun that would work great for any new player who wants a good gun to start out with, or a little more experianced player like me who want's to replace the piece of junk that he bought to start out with. ; )
