Review: i bought this gun knowing i was gonna have some type of problems right out of the box and have to send it in to the factory to be fixed. but i was cool with that because its a gun worth like 600 for 200. na all i got was headaches because of it.
right out of the box it was set up wrong. but i tuned it per Tech PB mikes instructions on his review. the oled board was very dim. this gun chops paint no matter what settings you use.
i had the bip delay all the way up to the max and the watch time maxed also. after playing with the settings for days and wasting a half box of paint testing it i finally got it to stop chopping. then an hour later its chopping again. AND I CHANGED NOTHING.
screw it. i sent it in to the factory to be fixed and set up. after a 3 weeks of them having it i called them and long story short they said the replaced everything on the gun and couldnt get it to shoot above 250 fps. (which is wierd because low velocity wasnt a problem i was having, unlike another guy who has this gun at my field) they said they had no replacments left in stock for it and instead gave me credit with the web site i purchased it from (they basicly gave up on it). their tech support was very helpful although they couldnt fix it they did all they could to try and they kept me updated thru the whole process.(once i called them).
all in all it was just a big waste of time and i wish i would have just purchased a reliable gun in the first place instead.
Conclusion: I made this review specifically to warn you others- dont bother with this gun. i swear i did a ton of research on it and probably read everything there is to read as far as troubleshooting and stuff online. the price drop tells all. if you want a nice electro cocker you gotta get a pre 2k5 and eblade it.

See the problem is the second box that says 6 months playing experience you should not buy an auto cocker if you have been in the sport after the last ones were made I have been playing since 98 and have owned many cockers they are hard to tune and from what you have said in the reviews is that you have no idea what you are doing because if you could not get it to shoot over 250fps then you did not have the regulators sweet spotted with the proper hammer spring tension and if you are just cranking on the adjustment screws trying to get it to shoot faster guess what all its going to do is chop sorry
