I recently got to try out my new marker at the field and I must say I'm impressed. I'm a beginner when it comes to paintballing so my review is based solely upon a full day use. When I got to the field, I started off with testing out the velocity to see if it meets the feilds standards. Straight from the box my shots stayed pretty consistent around 240-245 using a 48/3000 guerilla tank and the field standard was set at max 280. So I decided to just play with the current setting and went with my group to our first field.
Now, this was the first time I've used my new Pilot marker on the field and I was extremely satisfied with the accuracy and no chopping. I went through roughly about 1,500 paintballs that day and I did not get a single chop. The VL Force hopper was decent as I didn't get any jamming but it's just too loud, so definitely going to upgrade the hopper. But as goes for the marker, I absolutely will recommend this for beginners. The Pilot added with a good hopper, barrel and HPA makes quite the awesome marker which I'm sure I'll be using for a long while as I'm just a casual player.
EDIT: So i've played 3 full days with this marker now and I absolutely love it! I know it's a "Spyder" so there are a lot of doubt with this marker but I'm sure I'll just continue using this marker instead upgrading to a better on. I also got my girl the same marker and she's having too much fun with it.
Highly recommend this marker for beginners or just casual players like me. It's affordable, light weight and very accurate straight from the box. After watching me and testing out my marker, my gf is actually wanting one as well! =)
