I started playing back in 2003 and for some reason stopped playing until October, 2009 when a new paintball field opened up near where I live.
After reading multiple reviews on this marker from this website along with watching videos of it on the internet, I became very interested in this marker.
I went to a store in Michigan where I was able to hold the Vice and became quickly attached to it. About 20 minutes later, I left with a new marker that cost approximately $750.00 U.S.
The first time I used it at the new field, I could not believe the speed of the trigger. The marker was set on a burst mode, which I quickly found out after first starting out and I wasn't pressing the trigger any more and it continued to shoot rapidly. I then set it to an uncapped semi-auto mode. The marker has a great rate of fire, along with great accuracy. Currently the paintball field is using a smaller caliber paintball so sometimes the balls fly left and right. When I shot balls that actually fit the barrel, the grouping was great.
There are tons of settings to choose from including, semi-auto, full-auto, bursts, etc.
I was disappointed at the fact that the marker did not come with any instruction manual or tools of any sort. I had to search for the manual on the internet and print of the instructions myself.
As to this date, I have probably shot between 3,500 to 4,500 paint balls through it and have only had 2 ball breaks total.
I believe this marker is great and I definitely recommend getting it. I have not shot many other markers, but I am quite satisfied with its performance and abilities.
