Strengths: This gun delivers as advertised. It is significantly lighter and smoother than the stock Impulse. The Vision system is amazing. I ran loader after loader through it without turning on the Revvy. Sideways, upside down...not one ball chopped. No gas wasted dry firing. If there isn't a ball fully in the chamber it simply will not fire.

The Freak Factory Impulse came with the Freak barrel (one insert included, the other 7 were extra). Combine this amazing barrel with the eye and I doubt you could break paint if you tried. Very accurate with minimum drop-off during rapid fire. I added a drop forward & swung the macroline to the side. Though a tall gun, it feels quite compact with this configuration.
Weaknesses: No complaints about the gun aside from its height, but if you switch out the gas-through grip for a front mounted regulator you can shorten it a bit. Really it's all personal preferrence.
Conclusion: For the price you're getting a sweet gun and barrel. The trigger job is amazing. You really don't need a turbo board with it. The lightened bolt does reduce kick to almost nothing and it's easy to let off a string of shots one on top of the other with this gun. Spend the extra few bucks and get all the inserts for the barrel, it's worth it.

Some people say Smart Parts markers are gas hogs. This is not entirely true yet not entirely false. The operating pressure and dwell settings make a huge difference in shots per tank. Set the gun up PROPERLY and you'll get optimum performance without wasting gas. For the quality and performance of this marker you should be willing to play around with the settings until you have it just right. It'll be worth it. And remember, this tricked out gun was made by Aaron at Smart Parts. As such, it's still under warranty even with all the modifications.

Happy hunting

the impulse is truly one of a kind. its has everything any paintballer needs. its so cat and so light and fast . i dont know why anyone who would spend upwards of $1200 for a angel when all they do is break down and with this impulse you get what you see and what you see is a truly amazing marker.. i dont have one complaint about this gun and either should anyone else.
