Strengths: Well I'll start off by saying, it works.. hehe

It's pretty sweet, its not as tight looking as some other electronic frames like the Hyperframe, or triggers/frames on Bushmasters, and Angels, but it can keep up to the same speed aslong as you know how to shoot her, and you got her all configed right and junk.

The pull on the Booyah/Mako Storm frame is very clean and crisp if you have it on the short pull side.. easy to get a rhythmic type of firing with it, I'll note something in the bad portion about the trigger.

adjustable rate of fire to fix any feeding problems incase you accidently put it on 15 BPS to show off to your friends at the chrono to find out you'll be dry firing a few shots and maybe chop one, tourney lock, game timer, and shot counter is also included.

The gripframe has a neat feature to mount a dropfoward, it has straight and offset holes at the bottom of it! Wow, never thought I'd see this in a spyder trigger frame :), no more bottom line adapters!!!.. though I just about bought one to mount an ANS Dropfoward on it.

Not really many problems with the frame that I can see, you can adjust the sear since all spyders wouldn't be the same -they're mechanical, incase you are having problems shooting it on your spyder after you got done fiddling around with the modes etc. etc. before you installed it. You can use reg. 9volt batteries, but the charge on the LCD wont show full.

The frame is well machined and is powder coated/anodized (dont know which and cant tell) to match a cool looking black to match my TL+. though I wish the trigger was black too and not silver :-\, oh well, thats no biggy
Overall, Its kickass.
Weaknesses: The trigger itself, it's a little on the wide side, but you can get used to it easily.

If you adjust the trigger out farther, for a longer pull to the microswitch, the trigger feels real damn sloppy and has side to side play.. Im sure the side to side play and sloppyness will make up if you are running and shooting or you are down and dirty in woods, but overall.. not real good of a pull for todays speedball/airball/hyperball fields.

If you use it a lot, you will shoot more paint and you will need more money along with what you just paid for the frame (200 bucks). Speaking of paint, you'll need a decent agitating loader, 9volts or 12volts will work along with all the new hoppers HALO and Richochet (SP)... I say 9volt, because the ROF is adjustable and you can adjust it so it keeps up with speed on a 9volt.. but 12volt as usual, is recommended from me anyway.

If you consider a spyder shooting way too fast a bad thing, then this can be bad.

Air source, you might want to not use CO2 with it, but Im sure you can get away, if you fire the frame at high rates of fire for long periods of time.. you can eventually even with all of todays CO2 countermeasture aftermarket stopping parts.. still freeze your spyder. So compressed air/nitrogen is recommended......... So you fixed the freezing up, but now you might drop off if you didnt drop off on velocity with CO2, so you want a decent air system, most screw in tanks will drop off a little bit, however, you can go ahead and spend hundreds of more dollars on a nice air system, or you can get a screw in.... I'd get a screw in, speaking of screw ins.. crossfire came out with a nice new tank - It's regulater can keep up pretty good.. I found the other crossfire tanks regs to keep up pretty good too, Im sure you wont experience that much if any dropoff (velocity dropoff that is) in using 70 dollar nitrogen tanks...... So dont let this possible maybe kinda problem not to buy it.

It cost 200 bucks? Even less in some places.

It takes about 5 mins of messing around with the buttons to get used to how using the modes on the LCD, if thats bad. :-P

Lastly, grips arent all that great vs. Hogues and DYE, but who cares, you know?
Conclusion: Well, I think its a pretty cool upgrade myself, It pretty much pays itself out in the long run because you can pay less to get the same type of firepower and feel in a spyder vs. an LCD Angel, now Im not bashing any electronic guns, but this gripframe is cool.

I am putting this gripframe on my spyder TL Plus, which currently Im doing self mods and aftermarket upgrades (gripframe already got!) to make a LP Spyder with an electronic gripframe as a cool little project.

I give it a 10/10 because its a cool upgrade and it's just... cool.
10 out of 10
