Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Shocker, Impulse
Marker Setup: OLD Spyder (from the original production run, many hundreds of years ago)[polished internals, home modified low pressure valve, aftermarket low pressure chamber), gas-thru stock/remote line, 12V Revolution (300 round), 12+1 pack, 114 tank using CO2.
Strengths: The Storm is AWESOME. Bought the thing at Last Blast (Waynes World) on Saturday morning, spent 5 minutes putting it in, and shot a case of paint in the first 2 hours. DAMN !!!! Yes, I carry out a case of paint with me when I play scenario games. I stood toe-to-toe with Shockers, Angels, and Impulses. I have no problem shooting massive quantities of paint, I just was not able to do it very fast before I bought the Shocker. The only problem I have with the Shocker is that it is complex and breaks down more. It has let me down the last couple of scenario games, so I got the Storm to try it out.

During testing it worked just fine at up to 13 bps. At higher speeds it broke balls due to outshooting the loader. I will be selling my Shocker in order to buy a couple of more Storms for my other Spyders and XBoards for my Revvies.

By the way, I weighed my CO2 tank after the first case cause I was curious about possible increased gas usage. After I did the math, I could not believe it. I had used only 1.1-1.2 lbs (about 20-22 ounces), or the equivilent of a 20 oz tank. That equates to 100 rounds per ounce. I went the entire weekend (just short of 3 cases) on my 144 tank. The 144 tank holds 3 1/4 lbs of CO2 when full.
Weaknesses: They should supply the appropriate length mounting screws. I had to use a dremel to cut the stock screws so as to not damage the board. Other than that, the only bad thing is if you do not want to shoot paint. But if that is the case, why buy it in the first place?
Conclusion: Highly recommend it if you feel outgunned.
9 out of 10
