Strengths: This product is excellent for its price range. You have to consider the stock parts that it comes with, which are like aftermarket parts in the end. The Low Pressure chamber is VERY big, and the Expansion Chamber works like a charm. The barrel is 12 inches as well unlike other guns that come with a stock 8 inch barrel. CO2 leaks were undetected during my field testing of the gun. Note: the low pressure chamber is about 5 inches in length, almost the size of a stock barrel, and the EX chamber is 1.5 inches in diameter.

Some people have said that the CORE sharc looks like this gun, but the CORE doesn't have a regulator, and the low pressure chamber is about 1.5 inches smaller.

The gun also comes with a regulator that could come to use in the future when converting to LP operation. I'm trying to see if a Spyder aftermarket turbo valve will fit into the gun. Since both guns are stacked, they hopefully will have parts that will fit...

The gun worked great in the field! My partner and I won every match that we played, 2v2, which was about 8 matches. He used a Piranha BL with expansion chamber and a 14 inch CP barrel. My gun had something to do with the win, but you can't really rely on the gun all the way--strategy was a biggy in our little tourney and aim was the other. Other guns on the field were: Spyder TL with 18inch boomstick, Tippman 98 stock--it really sucks with a stock barrel omg but it felt pretty cool shooting..., and a Spyder Compact. Those are the guns I can remember trying out.

Breaking paint was not a problem. I used about 400 rounds on 32 degrees premium paint, and about 50 break eagles. None of the eagles broke in the gun. They only broke on the people. haha

Field stripping the gun is just like a Piranha. Less than 10 seconds.
Weaknesses: The only problem I found was that the screws were a little bit loose. Just tighten the screws when you get the gun and everything will be okay. This is usually common with most guns, so it's no biggy.
Conclusion: Comparing this gun to other guns in its price range is easy; it's the best out of all them. There is no way a stock Spyder, Piranha, or Tippman (cept maybe the flatline) can beat this gun. The EXR is fully customizable as well. I love this gun!

This is one long review, but it's in depth so that more people will see how good this gun really is. I wasn't too sure about buying this gun by reading all of these short reviews, but now I know, and you know, that this gun is one of the best in its class.

Future mods and current parts that are on the gun are as follows:

16 Inch Terminator barrel by 32 degrees
Stock bolt and hammer
Stock Expansion chamber - no need to mod
Stock Low pressure chamber - no need to mod
32 degrees or maybe a TASO vavle kit

You don't really need to change the barrel, but I'm going to be playing a sniper in my team so I had to change it. Going LP was also part of the reason.

Good luck and happy hunting
