Strengths: Shoots ropes out of the box
Very capable of keeping up with high-end markers
Weaknesses: None.
Review: I haven't experienced any of the negative issues or problems that the other reviews have mentioned...

No on going problems with air leaks. IMHO, that is more of an issue with frequency (or lack) of marker maintenance. I am meticulous about cleaning my marker after each day of play, so I have not had any issues.

The PMR SE shoots ropes out of the box. As far as performance is concerned, there is really no need for additional upgrades.

The stock board is fine -- speed is not a concern, it is more of an operator issue. That being said, I have a Tadao Technologies Musashi 7 installed in mine (I also have the same board installed in two additional markers that I own,) but even with the stock board, I was able to keep up, against players using higher-end markers.

If you feel like you are outgrowing the PMR SE or want additional programming features, you can always upgrade to a Dye Ultralite Frame or a new board. The Dye Ultralite Frame and included Sticky3 grips is great, but it is not any lighter than the stock composite frame. If you are concerned about weight, consider a new board like Tadao Technologies or Virtue instead.
Conclusion: The PMR is a great entry to mid level tourney marker. It is perfect for the player who wants performance but not a price tag of $500+. It is definitely worth spending the additional money for the PMR SE over the standard model. The factory upgrades alone are worth over $100.
