Strengths: Damn accurate! Get a good nitrotank with it (I was using a friend's Nitro DUck tank) and a good barrel with the right paint (my Autospirrit and old paint was responsible for all the breaks I've had with it. I swiched to a J&J Ceramic and Nelsons and had no breaks.) It takes Angel high rise (which I would get right away.). And it takes Cocker barrels (a replacement barrel is a much with any gun). THe stock barrel is alright but I'd replace it. Mine has Dye stickes, a Kapp Angel high rise and the Mayhem foregrip. I don't even use a drop forward. With a 68 ci 4500 it seemed a little back heavy but if I held it by hte grip and foregrip and shoulder it I got very good accuracy and it felt nice too. You can choose between left right or center feed (why would any use anything other than center?) I noticed when you start shooting faster than the gun (I think they locked the chip at about 8 bps.) You'll notice that it'll keep firing after you stop pulling hte trigger. THe reason is that when you pull hte trigger it hits a switch telling the board to run though it's cycle. SInce it's limited when you shoot really fast it has to cathc up. BUt they will be realeasing a new board next year that you can reprogram to shoot as fast as you want. Or you can just go buy a Morlock board now but you'll probably have to modify your gripframe. NExt year they're also be releasing a double trigger frame (cool!).
Weaknesses: Be carefull when switching it to center feed to unplug it of you'll rip the wires coming from the selinoid when you pull the grip frame off. and you'll have to solder them back together. It's not the fastest electro out there I think it shoots up to par with cockers and maybe close to mags. Cockers are quieter than this gun but that depends on your barrel too (I used an Autospirit most of the time and it was still pretty quiet.) . When I got it, it leaked a lot. But some of it was becasue I had a nearly dead battery in it and it just needed oiled. I oied it and waiting a few days they leaks stopped.
Conclusion: With a good nitro tank and barrel it's damn accurate (better accuracy than most guns out there.) I would recomend getting the fore grip with it and a high rise. A tank (or something else) to shoulder it will help alot too. When I had it all set-up the way I like I could shot it at the same spot over and over again. Even though it's slower than higher end electros its a damn good deal for $300. My friends with cockers and Intimidators liked it too. It's got a unique cocking sound. You won't find a better electro for the price.
