Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
Custom 98, A-5
Marker Setup: Alpha Black (Bravo One) Tactical
E-Trigger
Cyclone Feed
16" Progressive Barrel
Recommended
Upgrades:
Out of the Box, the Cyclone Feed would be the obvious choice, to handle the excellent 3 shot burst mode and full auto modes.
Strengths: Looks
Durability - Tough as nails!
Price tag is sweet
Weaknesses: Difficult to mod. (Lacking Scope Mounts etc.)
Heavy.
The stock barrel is a little short.
Review: I have used Spyder clones since I owned my first marker, and finally decided to go for something a little different.
A true woodsball marker, this thing is awesome.
Sure, it's a little heavy for some, but I am not a small person, so I can handle it.
It is tough as a bulldog, and can handle being dropped.
It has a nice matt finish, which doesn't give away position while crawling in a bush with a bathroom tap might do.
It's not quite up to the league of the A-5, but it sure can hold it's own in a fire fight.... and at the going price, you cannot go wrong.
In my years of experience in paintball, I have always found one problem, you get what you pay for..... I was pleasantly surprised so far with this marker, as it is cheap, reliable and strong.
I have put through plenty paint, and only when the battery on the E-grip failed, did I receive problems... but that was my fault.

Conclusion: If you are looking to start woodsball, and want a strong, reliable marker, then get this one!
Do yourself a favour though, upgrade to a Cyclone feed for peace of mind when you need to offload a full hopper in under 20 seconds.

I've got a Cyclone on my X7 e-grip, doesn't affect performance at all. The only thing I recommend is getting some upgrades for the Cyclone instead of just getting the mechanical Cyc.
