Review: I bought this because I was looking for an alternative to get my automag to shoot full auto without tinkering with the reactive trigger. First off, this may cause problems with classic valves and RT valves because the solenoid will not have sufficient strength to trip the sear. The easiest way to overcome this is to install AGD's ULT trigger. Not a bad upgrade as is, allowing the trigger pull to be easier, but it is almost nessisary with this frame. I installed my ULT with 4 shims so that it would not short stroke, and I was not worried about the trigger running away due to the way the frame works. Needless to say, the frame works GREAT with that setup. I run it with an Emag valve and level 10 bolt, and I have not chopped a paintball at all, even running the frame at full auto/15 balls per second.

Granted the cycle rate is only up to 15, but that's more than enough for me. The programming is extremely simple, and even without instructions I was able to figure it out the first time I held it. You can adjust the burst rate between 2 cycles and 12 cycles, as well as it has a timer and shot counter that can be reset. It does come with a charger and 9 volt battery, but when I bought it used it only came with a 9 volt, and so far it seems to do fine on batteries. I have yet to replace the battery after playing a few scenario games, so seems like any spyder e-frame.
Conclusion: Great alternative to buying an Emag, building a Pneumag or trying to get that sweet spot RT effect. It is picky on using a valve with a ULT for best performance, which I think is a downfall, but once you set it up with one it'll work great. I'm happy to have one! I give it an 8/10, because if it was as advertised then it should work with ALL valves, not just once with a ULT.
8 out of 10
