OakvillePB Monday, June 1st, 2009
Period of
Product Use:
2 years
Paintball
Experience:
2 years
Similar
Products Used:
Tippmann 98 Custom (Rental)
Marker Setup: Spyder Pilot or Sonix
Modded Viewloader Force Eyes or VL200 gravity feed.
16" 2 piece Evil Barrel
20 oz CO2
No current mods on the markers, soon to come though.
Recommended
Upgrades:
New barrel. The stock one just doesn't get it done with the accuracy.
There isn't really any need for an electronic hopper, I really only have one for the Pilot. You won't outshoot a gravity feed hopper with the Sonix.
Strengths: Very Reliable
Efficient air system
Very little chopping
Weaknesses: Accuracy, though a better barrel solves this.
Review: Honestly, a very good starter gun IMO. For 130 bucks I got the Sonix, 12 oz CO2 tank, goggles, and a gravity hopper. Everything you really need to start playing. It was the first gun I bought, and a still go back to it every once in a while. Very reliable backup if your regular marker stops working (i.e. my Pilot dying randomly). I think in the two years I've had it I have chopped maybe 3 balls. The only true downside is the barrel, but that can be solved with a quick trip to your local paintball outlet or ebay. Another thing: You may have to clip the spring when you first get it, because most indoor fields I know of limit you at 250 fps. I was up to about 320fps, and me being an idiot decided to let the ref have a go with it. He tried to unscrew the velocity adjuster, stripping it in the process, with me still shooting 300 or so. I then clipped the spring a little and ended up at 230 and in need of a new adjuster. Thats the only real mechanical flaw in it.
Conclusion: You get what you pay for. Reliable, good starting gun. Enough said.

Overall: 9 - Simply for the barrel.
Rating:
9 out of 10
