Nothing I have used even compares
This is my first quality marker
Dangerous Power Threshold
Black Pinokio Hopper
Drop from a Tippmann Custom Pro
A new board; but if you aren't a little complainer about the dips, the stock board is just fine
Allen Key Set
Dip Switches (Not a huge problem)
Leaky Macroline (Easily Fixable)
Design - I don't have enough room to describe the design of this gun. The RAPS is one of the greatest inventions ever. The feed neck has a very low profile while still gripping the hopper tightly. The reg is consistant and easy to maintain. The simple design allows for fast cleaning and the bolt-out-back design helps for quick field strips. The eyes work like a dream and can be set to only allow you to shoot when there is a ball in the sensor area. This gun throws paint at a ridiculously fast rate and I just love hitting some guy with 25 balls right in the mask is a matter of one second. I haven't chopped a ball yet and don't plan on it with this superb marker.
Looks - This gun looks amazing. Every time I go to the field people just ooh and aah over this gun. WARNING: If you don't want people admiring and staring at your sweet gun, do not buy this thing.
Feel - This gun seems to look big but it really isn't. Once you actually hold the marker in your hands, you can really feel that it is a good fit. The grips look bulky but are just right even if you have small hands. My friend has the smallest hands I have ever seen on a guy and he still handles this gun with ease.
Quality - The quality is amazing. This a high-end marker for the cost of a mid-range entry level marker. This gun just shoots ropes, never chops, has great consistancy, and just looks freaking amazing.
Rarity - I haven't seen a single other person with this gun and I know for a fact that there were only 500 made and most have been sold so act quickly.
One problem that I have is that I cut my macroline to fit a little shorter. DON'T BOTHER CUTTING THE MACRO. It looks fine uncut and you will have to just buy a new line because it is going to leak. Better to have a little slack than a serious leak.
Don't mess with the dip switches that don't control the firing modes. Just leave them the way they come.
Pretty much, this gun is ready to fire straight out of the box. Just connect some lines and play!
I haven't used every marker under the sun but I can say that from my experience and from playing with some of the other guys on the field who own $1000 plus guns, the threshold holds its own and then some. This gun can and will compete with shockers, egos, and other high-end, well-known markers. IF YOU ARE ON THE FENCE, TRUST ME...BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT. DON'T THINK, JUST BUY.
