Period of
Product Use:
3 months
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Angel LCD : trigger feels the same, less kick
Marker Setup: Spyder 2000, low pressure: 300psi, palmer stabilizer reg, mako storm elcd
Strengths: This review is of the Mako Storm, the replacement for the discontinued booyah
-Excellent trigger: can fire 12bps in tourney mode, no need for the other modes.
-BPS limit in semi mode makes for much less chopped paint--electronics will force you NOT to outshoot your hopper.
-Good build quality: all metal, very sturdy feeling
-Excellent battery life: Two cases of paint and still using the same 9 volt--I think the solved the problem that that the booyah had
-LCD: You have to pay a lot more for an LCD on a kingman ESP
-Looks great
-Good price: $160 is a lot cheaper than the booyah ever was
Weaknesses: -Stock spyders can't handle the ROF without horrible shootdown and recocking problems, you need either low pressure with a GOOD fast-recharging regulator, or HPA.
-The sear already has a tiny chip in it, not sure if it was like this when I bought it, but it does bring up reliablity concerns. Hasn't affected performance... yet
-The grip panels are not water tight, a bad thing for something electronic
-Centerflag and Kingman offer replacement "hardened" strikers with their electro grips; Mako doesn't. The mako operates the same so it will wear the striker the same.
-Extra vibration can cause grip-frame bolts to loosen
-You need a 12v revy or a warp feed to truely take advantage of this grip, don't go over 11bps without a warp feed!
Conclusion: If you don't have a spyder already, or a bone-stock spyder your better off buying an impulse. But, If you have a low pressure spyder, or a spyder running off HPA and you like the idea of having something modified over stock than I suggest the Mako Storm.
