Product Use:
Only tested
6 months
Products Used:
Brass Eagle fiber optic sight (didn't work for me when I had it on my Talon), and I can't compare it to this one because I gave it to my cousin before I owned my Illustrator
Marker Setup: Black F4 Illustrator with iMP red-dot sight, VL-200 w/ adjustable elbow, powered by a 9 Oz chrome-moly (cost-effective, I'm not a wimp at 150 lbs).
Strengths: First, I love the way it looks, something about it makes it look intimidating. Second, it is very easy to mount and adjust, almost too easy... Even though I ran out of paintballs before I could calibrate it, the un-calibrated shots were still very good (before you say anything, I do know how to calibrate it, I only had 5 paintballs to do it with). Oh yeah, it also comes with a battery, big plus for a poor *** mo-fo such as myself. It is also made of polymer, also good for keeping the cost down.
Weaknesses: These are just little things, except for the stripped screw, which isn't all that big of a deal. The second time I mounted it, the rear screw partially stripped, but it is my fault because I put too much pressure on it, but it is still pretty firm on the sight rail (it has enough tension that it won't move by itself, but can easily be removed to acsess my F4's field strip). Second, the battery is exposed, and as the paint is water soluable, it could short if a paintball hit it. Third, the LED is exposed, so a direct hit could destroy it, even though the only way to hit it would be from the side. And it is very easy to forget it's on, I'm luckey that I took a head long glance at it before I put it away.
Conclusion: I think that ADCO will always have a market in paintball, their sights are great, and they're not that expensive, either. Well back to the conclusion...Overall, the good outways the bad, and even then, the bad is so insignificant. The only thing that had me slightly worried was that I spent close to half an hour looking for a screw that could fit in the tap, when I never even NEEDED one, the partially stripped one still had a good amount of staying power. I love it, and since I have no experiance with other sights, except for "iron sights," I have no choice but to give it a good rating. I'm always going to stick with ADCO, and I think I might even splurge and buy an E-Dot.
