Wired eyes - not necessary but Ribbon eyes are prone to snapping.
Barrel Kit - Stock barrel is good but you can't match bore sizes with only one back.
I got this Marker in a trade and it is the first spoolie I've ever used, and I have to say I'm quite pleased with it. The marker is quite light and feals great in your hands probably due to the, now stock, UL Frame. It comes with a 14" Proto Ultralite 2 piece barrel. Barrrel is quite nice, accurate (ish?) depending on the size of the paint. I haven't got to use paint that matches the barrels bore yet so I'm not entirely sure on how good it will do. With having the barrel over bored compared to the paint, it did quite well. Frome what I read, the PMR10 is nearly identical to the PMR09 with a few cosmetic changes and the addition of colored o-rings. Since the marker is a Boost forward design, there is no LPR to mess with. Makes tuning easier. It has chopped on me once or twice. They were jsut random chops to. didnt effect anything next ball came out just fine and was just as accurate before the break. No clue why, but on occasion a ball just seems to break.
The efficiency of this gun is bad. Maybe thats just a spoolie thing. I can get maybe 7 pods off my 68/4500. In the scheme of things, it realy just means that you have to fill up each game. Since I dont carry 7 pods onto the field, I run out of paint before air as long as I fill up.
The case it comes with is just sad. It dosn't look as if it will do much protecting and is relativly hard to get the barrels back in the retainers. The case for my Ego was much better. But, thats probably more of a personal preference than a negative.
This is a really good marker. For someone who is looking to get a good mid-end marker for tourni play, I would highly recomend the PMR10. However, if it is as similar to the PMR09 as I have read, I would say buy a used PMR09 and save some $$$. The only downside I really can find is the efficiency... But if you have all day air and time between games, it shouldn't be a problem.
Yea I have the 2010 PMR and effieciency isn't all that great, but I can at least get 4-5 pods of a fill of about 2500 so u might want to look into lowering your dwell because you should be able to at least get two more pods out of it.
