Review: Alright, I have been using this marker for 6 months, and let me tell you, it has been gravy since I first pulled the trigger. First things first, this thing is a cannon. No two ways about it, you can make peoples ears ring. (This is great for the idiot agg kiddy trying to share the deflated dorito with you when you were there first... "Suck my decible level!")

Moving on to performance. In this aspect, the vector is quite possibly the best around. The trigger pull is smaller then most microswtches, and has positively no side to side play. Also, besides the sonic boom when fired, the vector does not tell you it's being fired. No vibration, no movement, nothing. all you see is the wire detent flick and the boom of the paintball being hammered out the barrel. And that paintball will go exactly where you want it to. The accuracy on this barrel is truly amazing, and I've got some hillarious shots with it.

Now, I've been mean to this marker, the worst being running a siphon CO2 tank on a hot day during a big game. And although it swore at me every time I pulled the trigger and blasted a foot long puff of CO2 vapour out the end, it held on for the rush and shot consistant. My mantaince for this marker is get all the paint off of it and oil it every time moving parts get dry, and it seems to do just fine. Also, the antichop feature on this is pretty great, when you are about to give your breech a new paintjob, the bolt will bounce off the ball and stop the firing sequence. Then all you do is flip the safety on then off and with a satisfying *Thwack* your vector is ready to go forth and pwn once more.

Now come the minor inconveninaces. One of them being the constant leak, though technically it is not a leak. It is"Venting". This allows you to use whatever gas you want and it won't go boom if you leave it in the sun. Pretty neat if you ask me, but it still whispers in my ear that I should go plug the leak or somthing. Next and last, the velocsity adjustment. I see this as somone who made this part of the marker diddn't have to pay for their air refills, because you MUST completely disconnect the tank fully then stick your allen key in the asa to adjust the velocity. Though it's well thought out and keeps the velocity consistant, it's a pain in the butt. Although no markers perfect, this one is as close as it'll get.
Conclusion: If you want to feel like you are smiting rival players with the right hand of god every time you pull the trigger, this is the marker for you. If you want everyone to know what they got themselves into when they were foolish enough to challenge you, grab this gun and give them a nice purple welt they can take home and show their family.
