Review: I purchased this hammer looking for a new upgrade for my 98 Custom Pro and trying to improve my cycle rate with the super response trigger. Now this thing for certain, just like they claim, is ALOT lighter than the stock hammer for the 98. It is pretty awesome in that alone. I haven't gotten to use this in battle yet, only tested it, but it increased my BPS with my response trigger by at least 2 (from testing). The amount of recoil is also a little less. Now, you paintball gun is going to shoot harder or lighter depending on the amount of force applied to the pin in the CO2 chamber. Force is determined my the momentum of the bolt hitting the pin. With this is mind the weight and speed at which the hammer is moving will determine how hard the pin is hit thus how hard your gun will shoot. So assuming the loss in weight will result in a lighter shot I added in a stronger spring, which I'd recommend given the physics of it. You could easily pick up the Maddmann spring kit and add that in.
Conclusion: Overall this thing's pretty sweet: less recoil, faster cycling rate, and more consistent. Like I stated, adding in a tighter drive spring would probably be a good idea given the loss in weight. If your looking for a way to improve your 98, A5, X7, or BT, I'd say pick on of these bad boys up. I'll give it a 10 out of 10, for the fact that it does what's meant to do, be lighter.
10 out of 10
