Review: Ever since turning in my tax return that i would get $600 and wanting to spend it on a new marker. My PMR was holding up against the "Higher End" markers but i needed a main gun and use the Rail as a backup. i wanted a PE 07 EGO but they were still out of my price range. Then i saw the review from techpb on the 08 EGO vs the Vice and i was hooked.

Looks:The milling on the Vice is beyond beautiful. The milling looks like liquid metal and it looks like it was craved out of marble. The paint job is superb like other Bob Long markers such as the Marq and other timmys. No nicks or blemishes on the body or frame at all. even inside the grip frame its all annodized

Performance:All i can say is WOW. The Vice shoots so freakin fast. At a recent tournament, my gun was checked every other game because the ref thought i was ramping. Once you find the sweet spot on the S-Class trigger (Marq trigger that is milled and hollowed out), you can hit over 15 bps depending on your loader. The HPR is the Bob Long 360 reg found on the Marq and the Protege. My first 5 shots over the chrono; 280, 280, 282, 278, 282. I had to reset the chronograph to see if it was right. 280, 281, 280, 280, 282. I nearly crapped in my pants. My hyper2 isn't that consistent. I have a 68/4500 tank and most of the time it fills to 4k and i can get about 13 to 14 pods per fill. That's right, i said PER FILL. It's mind boggling that this marker can get almost a case in only one fill.
Conclusion: I would give this marker a 9.5 because it does not come with a manual on how to maintain the marker and such. But since this review is written, boblongdirect.com now has a beta version of manual and now that score is up to 10. This gun is worth every penny. And simply put, the demand for this gun is so high that even the guys at Bob Long can't fill them fast enough.
