Strengths: This gun is just as accurate as any other cocker. It shoots great and it shoots fast. You get all the speed of an angel and the dead on flight path of an autococker. The electric eye is also a very nice feature.
Weaknesses: On the bad side, you have to deal with Sandridge. Their customer service is pretty pathetic to say the least. I ordered my Force 5 and it was over two months before it was in my hands. This was after calling a few times to verify that they were in fact making my gun, and every time I got a different story! Then when it finally arrived it wasn't exactly what I had ordered but, by this point I wanted to shoot it so bad I just let it go. Then I had to solder a few wires back on and do quite a bit more work to get it to work properly, but in the end it's a sweet gun.
Other than that I can't really think of any bad things about the gun itself. Some people complain about the black box that USED to be standard, but it really isn't a big deal on the field. I don't even realize it's there.
Conclusion: So, would I reccomend the F5? Yes, if you like cockers and know how to work on them, but you feel like you need insane amounts of firepower on the field this is the gun for you. I think the price is a little too steep but that goes for every other top end electro out there as well. And when compared to most other guns you really do get more for your money. As with any gun, before you buy it shoot it. Go to some tournaments or local fields and ask around. Usually players are proud of their guns and are glad to let you shoot them some. See if it feels right to you.

Not a 10 due to the fact that it's just not PERFECT, but closer than almost any other marker.
9 out of 10
