Review: I have only used this gun once but I went through 3 cases of paint and I didn't have one ball chop. I love the Zen board because it's easy to use and you can send it into Azodin and they can put any mode you want on there FREE OF CHARGE! This gun will do about 21 BPS at the most and it's great for the price. I would reccomend this gun to anyone.

EDIT:
So, I've really been able to use this gun. I've had it for about 7 months now. I shoot about a case of paint through it a month more or less. And i've had days at the field where I have fatal problems with the gun and can't play the rest of the day. And then there are days where, no matter what, this gun does not quit and shoots in the toughest, dirtiest conditions.... Last time I was out at the field I went to chrono as usual before the first game and the very first shot my gun did the little Tippmann noise when your out of air and sounds like it's going to explode. I stopped it by holding the bolt and tried again and it didn't happen again till the end of the day. On the very last game my grip frame screws started to come out by themselves and it detatched the trigger and solenoid from the ram and bolt stack making it impossible to shoot. The worst day of paintball I have EVER had. Since then, I took it to the shop and had them check it out.

They found so many problems I couldn't believe it:
1. Solenoid was loose and rolling around on it's own,
2. Set screw and magnet were missing from the trigger.
3. The spring was worn down and very flimsy.
4.Had paint inside both of the eyes from chopped balls (when my gun would do that tippmann thing it would keep shooting and feeding balls and breaking paint proving the eyes dysfunctional)

They fixed it and I haven't laid a hand on anything that is considered adjustable on the marker. The trigger was adjusted to a point where the set screw fell out. I've definitely learned not to touch the setting so much on the gun.

I was also able to get some custom modes put on the stock board using the AZ Editor at my local shop. They put Full auto and PSP 3-shot on there. (Full Auto capped at 25) which I haven't tried yet but and very anxious too!

So, with all honesty I still love the Azodin Blitz but have had so many problems and I pray when I'm out at the field that I don't have any problems. I hate having that feeling and I shouldn't have a fear that my Blitz is going to ruin my day at the field.
Conclusion: I reccomend this marker because it's easy to take a part and put back together and it's inexspensive. If you want a good electrical marker and you want to step away from the mechanical markers then you should get the Azodin Blitz.

EDIT:
I still agree this is an amazing gun for the price and it really is. but with all thes problems i've been having I'm not happy with Azodin and I wish the markers they made were a little better quality and had more upgrades. So I have to give the blitz an 8 for it's roller coaster performance on the field.

I have to agree with you. The first time I took it out it worked flawlessly, took it out again today and it was the worst day of paintball. The gun would NOT SHOOT with eyes on, even though it said the eyes were just fine, and I played with the eyes off the rest of the day and chopped balls like a lawnmower. Sucked.

Yeah I figured out that the gun is very sensitive to tweaks and you can't really mess around with it or it'll break. You have to go with what Azodin gives you basically and just maintain the gun as best as you can. That's what i learned.
