Tippmann 98, Etek 3, rental markers (rentals are just...eeeww), and my Beloved Invert Mini.
Azodin Kaos, J&J Ceramic Full Tilt (2 piece), Proto Primo, Co2 or 48/3000 HPA steelie tank
Invert Mini (with a Violent series trigger, Stock barrel/J&J Ceramic Full Tilt, Dye Rotor, 68/4500 Empire LPA tank
Maintainence is simple, Price!!! :D, works great, accurate, light, has the "speedball" look to it
Feedneck (more detail in the review), and its loud
This is a great marker, its cheap (under $100), the thing is pretty accurate. (in fact i use this as my back-up marker and sometimes my main ^_^, even in speed ball against Eteks, Egos, etc)
But the main flaw i can think of is the feed neck, but what i did is i just took off the cap of the feedneck and the silver thing and just put it back in there, and it holds my (Gravity/Proto Primo) hopper pretty well.
Air Efficiancy is decent
And taking it apart is easier then a tippmann in my opinion.
A couple upgrades you might consider is: an HPA tank, a new barrel, a new feedneck (optional), and maybe the Hush bolt (optional)
If I were recommending this to a new player, i would say f**k yeah!!!
I would also recommend this the a mid-level player, it be a pretty good backup marker or maybe even main (depending on your preference).
so in conclusion im giving it an 8 (its not perfect, but its not bad)
***note: DON'T EVEN COMPARE THIS TO A SPYDER, DON'T YOU DARE. This thing makes a great name for itself, its no spyder its an AWESOME Azodin.
8 out of 10

The designers of the Azodin paintball guns say they based it on the spyders they used to own and the upgrades that spyder never did. I'm not going to compare it to a spyder, but I will compare it to a stock A5 and the azodin is better.
