Review: I play woodsball mostly and moved out here to california. I noticed there are only a few woodsball feilds the rest are speedball. I couldnt make up my mind on which speedball marker i wanted to upgrade to and i had my eye on this for a long, long time. So i ordered it and waited for it to come. About a week later i got to take it out....

My first impressions and the pros-

The marker comes neatly packaged in an awesome strong, solid carrying case. Everything is in two stages of foam. I took it out and in pistol form it has a solid feel. Though the grip is a little large it wasnt terrible in the least. I attached everything and interchanged between all of the set ups i could think of there was about ten roughly. I read through the basic operations of the manual which is really easy to follow. Then i took it outside and test fired it.
I did not know what the chrono speed is but it shot straight and true. i was using twelve grams at the time, because my remote line was broken, and they only get about forty shots before i had to replace. However, i had to wait about two weeks before i could use it in a game ( thats at the end).

The cons-

When you attach all of the accessories the weight hits you. Its not an unbearable weight, but for a scenario or really long game you might want to get a sling. The marker itself is actually more quiet than my tippmann, noticeably, but not the quietest out there. Again the grip is a little large but it houses eight paintballs in front of a 12 gram or the remote line adapter. But other than that it is comfortable and better held with both hands. Also the hopper attachment point is "adjustable", aka able to be tightened, but mine is really loose all the way so a clamp or miner trimming up will do the trick.


And now the game play-

I show up to ventures games park in california which is on the side of mount diablo and thus either up hill or downhill battles in the woods. Everyone was checking out my T9 and asking questions. I also noticed a couple people had that "ohhhh!" nervous look that they tried to cover up (u experienced players know what im talking about). There were the occasional stuck ups that blew off my gun especially with the tiny hopper attached. They were shocked when i eliminated one of them early on. Well at the chrono it was factory set at 256 fps and so i increased it a little bit to 268-271 fps. I didnt get a chance to shoot strings but thats okay.
The marker performed wonderful against many different people. I put about six hundred rounds of old Karnage paint and then it happened... ONE SINGLE ball chopped and paint was plastered in the barrel and barrel extension. If the barrels are not spotless they through crazy spins on the ball and that extremely reduces accuracy, distance, and overall performance. i cleaned it as much as i could and it was almost as good but it needs a very detailed cleaning. I also used it as pistol form but was eliminated early in that round so i cant really say anything about it like that. THIS is the top marker i ever used.
Conclusion: If you are willing to pay the price you get your money's worth. This is by far the best marker i ever used with extreme custimizing to your liking. I absolutely love this gun and will recommend it to anyone. You cant go wrong with it. I cant wait to use it again and will often do so.
