Strengths: Very well machined product. Much stronger than it looks. Excellent shoulder support and gives a reassuring "heft" to your gun. Light (not even half a pound), and can be positioned in different places, depending on the gun you own. Fits Tippmanns and Spyders. Helps balance out your gun and brings your sight plane more in-line with your gun when you bring it up to your shoulder. Eliminated my tank "ping" when firing.
Weaknesses: I'm not sure but I think this drop forward/stock was designed with the original Tippmann Model 98 in mind. I have a 98 Custom, and I needed to purchase a 90 degree elbow and a longer (10") steel hose in order to hook it up. You probably wouldn't need that long a hose if you have a front grip expansion chamber on your 98. This was the only minor problem I had. Also, larger tanks (I have one 20 oz.) tend to "stick out" on the sides of the main stock bar, and sometimes it "feels" funny on your arm or elbow. I would recommend using 14 oz tanks or smaller.
Conclusion: I paid $42 for this product and I don't regret it at all. My 98 has a real "rifle" look to it with this device and my 16" All American barrel. A lot of its appeal is psychological; if you want to overcome the "toy-like" feel of most paintball markers, this definitely helps. The only thing that could improve this product would be if they made it collapsible (sliding in under your marker) or folding to either side. My fellow players were impressed with how it shouldered and how strong it was
9 out of 10
