Review: the smart parts epiphany is a good gun for the price. all though it is somewhat annoying that the charge you up to an extra $75 for different color combinations. while on the subject of the body the gun can scratch very easily. money turf can give it small yet noticeable scratches that give its suave appearance look a little unappealing. With colors with a black background base the finger prints are extremely noticeable and for some reason the gun feels extremely oily. Right underneath the front grip there is a nut that adjusts the velocity. if you slide this can easily be twisted and the velocity can be changed. this may seem like it wont make much of a difference but it will. this is because the refs will check your velocity and they will notice it ha changed and might kick you from the field from changing it. VERY IMPORTANT- if you turn it all they way up the gun will not function at all and you will propably get bonus balled...ALOT XD
Conclusion: If you are in need of a backup gun or you are an intermediate player or just want a new gun I can recommend this gun to you. With every good gun there comes some down sides. That doesn't mean you shouldn't by this gun.

I don't know man, about 80% of your review is about the look of the gun, which I think is awsome. I dive all over my speedball field with this and I have no noticable scratches. What about how it shoots? It's quiet, smooth, and fast. I think your review was lop-sided and overly harsh.

I am going to have to agree to disagree with the statement of the easy scratching and the change in velocity through the handle. I haven't had any issues with scratching the same as Gary12445 has not experienced easy scratches. I also agree with gary that the review is a little slighted and doesn't go in to detail about the overall function and adjustability of the gun.

Also, as far as I can tell after taking the gun apart, the regulator is independent of the front sleeve/handle that is on the gun. You should be able to twist the front handle all day long without adjusting pressure because it is merely an asthetic cover over the actual regulator.

Not trying to bash your review, so please take this as just constructive criticism.
