Upgrades:
My paintball marker, as it stands, is a pretty good setup. I did notice some of the parts worked well with others. For example, the hair pin trigger kit and response trigger work well. You really need to install parts and then try them a couple times and then go again.

I always recommend the flatline barrel or cyclone feed system. Can't go wrong.
Strengths: Highly Customizable
Light
Reliable
Easy disassembly
Weaknesses: Small Parts
Plastic Parts
Review: I bought this paintball marker because a few guys I worked with suggested we get into paintball and play every other weekend. I was told this paintball marker would be a good beginner marker to get. So I bought it and I've been using it for the past 6 months. I have always had a thing for modification to make everything unique so I bought the upgrades and tried them, bought more upgrades and tried them. I think I am at the point now I have nothing left to add to my marker that I would really want. I think this is probably the best paintball marker for new players.

Strengths:
Again, this marker is very customizable. It may not look like much when you first take it out of the box but after a few upgrades, it is a serious player on the field. The marker itself, without a co2 tank attached, is very light and maneuverable. After adding a tank it is still quite light. This marker, out of all that I have tried or used, has to be the most reliable. It's basically the AK-47 of paintball. You can drop it, get it dirty, throw it out a window(one of my friends did this from a two-story window to escape getting shot), and it will still work like the day it was bought. The disassembly of this marker is a bit confusing at first, you really need to take it apart without the parts moving from their locations. But once you do it once or twice, you will be able to take this marker apart with your eyes closed.

Weaknesses:
There are a lot of small parts in this marker. Personally, I've missed putting some of them back in when I've disassembled it. I find the worst part of the whole marker is the front sight spring. It's very tricky. You may want to buy a parts kit for this gun to keep with you while playing in case you ever need to field strip it. When I say plastic parts, I am mostly referring to the power tube. It is quite sturdy but I don't know. Something about a part that handles compressed air and below freezing temperatures doesn't seem right to be for some reason. I never had a problem with my power tube but I read reviews that the aluminum ones make the marker more consistent, which is why I got it.
Conclusion: I would recommend this marker to anyone who is either a beginner or a pro. You will never be disappointed by a Tippmann marker. I have all Tippmann markers, except my JT Tac5, and I never leave home to play without them.

Score: 9

I give this a 9 because its not perfect. Its a bit awkward to hold when the tank is attached to the ASA, the small parts can be a pain to deal with.
