Products Used:
2000 WDP Black Angel LCD - Stock Barrel
Shocktech Bolt
Cobra Volumizers
WDP Reg.
PMI 88ci 3000 N2

The 2000 Angel LCD fires exactly the same as the WS Dark. Perhaps a hair lower pressure due to the Shocktech bolt, but otherwise performance is the same with the stock barrel and regulator. The WS Dark is a little lighter, and of course catches a lot more glimpses than a stock LCD.

2000 WDP Fly Angel LCD - Completely Stock
PMI 88ci 3000 N2

The Fly is very light, but once again performance is exactly the same as the WS Dark.

All 3 Angels performed exactly alike when tested stock at the same velocity, same paint, and having had trigger jobs done to each one.

Upgrades:
For the WS Dark, I would have to recommend the following to get a solid, stable, and consistent paintball marker:

CenterFlag or Mac Dev Gladiator In-Line Regulator
-The stock regulator is just too inconsistent over the chrono, and inconsistent shots can mean the difference between an elimination, and a loss. Also, the stock reg can't keep up at those high rates of fire. Next time you're at a field, watch the guy with the Angel rapid fire a string of 50 balls. From the side you'll be able to see the drop off in velocity the Angel reg. experiences. The Mac Dev Gladiator and the CenterFlag HyperFlow In-line are both extremely good regs which experience very little shoot-down during rapid fire.

You may want to invest in an inter-changeable barrel system like the Freak if you frequent different fields and always want the best paint/barrel match.

Strengths: Let's face it...Its probably one of the most exotic, beautiful markers out there. I can't go to a field without "ooohhss," and "ahhhhs" from the players around me.

From a WS Dark, you can expect the same performance you'll get out of any Angel. A fantastic rate of fire, comfortable trigger, and a sleek lookin' marker.

Ball Breakage will be experienced with any marker, however with the Angel's speed breach, cleaning is fast, and easy.

Maintenance is no problem. A couple drops of oil a month, and you're ready to rock. The WS Dark is an extremely reliable Marker.

Weaknesses: Beauty is only Skin Deep...

From a player perspective, the Angel is the best marker out there if you're looking for eliminations by volume. Its accuracy is better than that of a spyder, or pirahna, but far from that of a Matrix, Autococker, or Impulse.

As stated earlier, the consistency of the reg leaves a lot to be desired. If you're used to shooting a low pressure marker, then the Angel's performance over a chrono will surprise you.

Angel's mechanics limit the marker's range as well. Stand in-between a guy with an Angel, and a guy with a Matrix, and see who has to angle their shot to hit the target.
Conclusion: The Warped Sportz Dark Angel is a gorgeous marker with perfect cuts, and flawless anodizing. Out of the box you can expect to turn it on, play, turn it off, turn it back on in a month and it'll still shoot great. A very reliable, beautiful machine which will throw any bystander into awe when they see it.

Performance-wise its better than average, but there are better markers out there. If you want to see a performance gain, spend the money on the Mac Dev or CenterFlag reg. They're both fabulous. I use a Dezign bolt in mine, and I find it to make the marker a little more air efficient, that's about it.

If you're considering a WS Dark, more power to you. They're presentation is that unlike any other marker, however if you want a performer, take a look at a Matrix, you might be surprised.
