Better than an ion, and slg
too large of a feedneck
Leaks like crazy (at first)
My brother purchased this gun from an ebay store, and so far i am extremely impressed with this product. When we took it to the field for the first time, we had to get a five dollar oring to fix the leaking from the regulator. (I know, crazy isn't it?) Anyway, once we got it working, we went to chronograph it and had great results! I forget the exact velocities, but they were pretty good. We took it onto the speedball field and, my brother loved the way it shot, and felt in his hands. By the way, he's used to using a crappy rental carbine, so this is a huge step up for him. It is still going to take time for him to get used to it, because the first match of the day he got shot off the break while going for the snake. I guess he overestimated his ability with his slick new speedball gun. Anyway the last match of the day, he let me use it. I did the best i have ever done in paintball. I stayed back laughing as I pecked off a bunch of the other teams players. (A lot of them were using egos by the way) Then, this kid with an slg came and bunkered my teammate next to me. Out of fear, I accidentally shot him 4, i kid you not, 4 times by accident because i wasn't used to the speed of the gun. (it was in semi by the way) I shot the entire hopper 5 minutes into the match and had to call myself out.
This is a magnificent gun, and can keep up with any ego, or dm. Trust me, this $100- 175 gun can kick butt. Buy this gun now. I like this gun better than the defiant 2, which is more than twice as expensive. I will gladly give this gun a 10 despite the few technical difficulties i had at first. I wish i could rate higher.
P.S. Don't get the ion, it is piece of crap compared to this.
