Review: Ive played woodsball for awhile and started with spyders and then recently got an a5 that i fully upped and modded. Everyone kept saying how great they were and i tried it out. The a5 really didnt get me and i thought about going back to the spyder mr3 (way better than A5) but decided to try the sp-1, WOW, i will never go back to mechanical markers. It is so quiet and light compared to the A5, and only costs $175 ( mine with blackheart board installed cost $250 at Playing with this in the woods is amazing b/c people cant hear where your shooting from and playing against people with tippmanns is almost unfair b/c youll know where they are from their first shot. It is also very efficient. I got about 800 shots on my a5 from a 68/4500 tank. I havent been able to try out a full tank yet on my sp-1 but my brothers mr2 wouldnt shoot with a little air left in the tank while my sp-1 was firing full auto. As of now though its been sent in for repair after 1 day of use. Make sure when you buy it that you check the bolt sleeve and the threading in the back. My bolt sleeve was scratched and gouged from a small piece of metal sticking up and having sharp threads. It was kind of difficult getting the back to come out as well. But the smart parts customer service is taking care of it now and is reimbursing me for shipping it back to them. INCREDIBLE!!! They are very helpfull
Conclusion: Overall this is a great investment! Dont buy a woodsball gun for its looks(A5), buy one for its performance. Looks dont win games ( though they are cool), performance does.
