Review: So, ive played a few times in the last few years with crappy rentals, and finally really got bit by the paintball bug and opened another expensive pandoras box. i wanted a good woodsballish marker, and my friend has one of these and he, along with reviews on this site and elsewhere convinced me to go with it. the price is very justifiable (even with the 25$ increase) when you consider how in my opinion it is better than similiarly priced woodball oriented markers. (*cough*tippmann*cough)

so ive played with it for about a month now, and other than me accidentally stripping my asa screw, its been great. i did stick some cotten into the battery assembly though, so it wouldnt rattle. also, i just ordered a clamping feedneck, because this gun needs it for my vlocity jr. otherwise id be constantly unscrewing and rescrewing the feedneck. also, a word of warning, this gun does not like gravity hoppers, since because it has so little kick, it doesnt want to feed very well with gravity hoppers. my first couple of times i played with gravity, and it was so annoying having to constantly shake my gun to get it to feed, but then i bought a used vlo jr., and it fired pretty amazing, accurate streams of paint (with new barrel, mind you)

overall, i highly recommend this to woodsball players. if youre going speedball, i wouldnt. (maybe check out proto slgs, ions, and used invert minis)
Conclusion: overall, i highly recommend this to woodsball players. if youre going speedball, i wouldnt. (maybe check out proto slgs, ions, and used invert minis)

I give this marker a 9, since it still is a cheap gun, but is a great value.
Rating:
9 out of 10
