I was a little skeptical when I bought this gun. I got it boxing day for 83$ canadian. That puts it in the same price range as a Brass EAgle T Storm. WOW. This raises two good questions.1: Why the heck do T storms cost so much and deliver such an inferior product and 2: How do the guys at Azodin do this and not lose money??
The gun is light, fairly tight, has dual ball detents, a full delrin with notches, a 'featherlite' hammer, Reealll smooth operation, a twist lock feedneck , a surprisingly quick and responsive trigger that is really easy to walk for a mech, and comes with a bag of replacement everything.
The feedneck is a little tough to tighten but once you get the hang of it it does the job quite nicely. I'm still using the stock barrel but I'm thinking of upgrading it at some point. No rush though, the stock barrel isn't terrible. I would more so be upgrading it for something to do.
I'm using an Extreme Rage dB Hopper. I haven't chopped a ball but i did have a barrel break. The paint was probably to blame though, I had to pick out some broken ones before I loaded.
My friend has owned a Spyder TL+ for about a year (Now I own it, he sold it to me for $35 after he picked up an Azodin of his own.). When he picked up the Azodin and tried it out he seemed kinda quiet. Later he told me that he was disappointed because the Azodin was everything he wanted his spyder to be.
Here's the kicker. My primary is a souped up A5. The first time I used this Azodin, there was a guy with a stock A5 and I kept getting him out. He really didn't have a chance. The Azodin is just that much slimmer, smaller, lighter more accurate and easier to handle out of the box than an A5. A5 = 230$, Kaos = 83$. Kaos Wins.
Fantastic Paintball gun. If you want a Semi Auto, this is basically an upgraded spyder and costs less than its equivalent stock spyder competitor. All in all, the Azodin is Awesome!
EDIT 1 - Took the Azodin woodsballing yesterday. I was shooting my paint faster than the guy next to me with a Spyder Electra. I was shooting cross field maybe 50m in the sun. Watching the paint go that far was quite a sight. It seems to just flutter right to the target. It was actually quite majestic in it's own way. I've said it once and I'll say it again - the Azodin is awesome!
