Products Used:
Tippmann Model 98/98 Custom, ACI Griffin, ACI Griffin LCD (custom made, electric, comes out in some time now but have connections), Normal ACI F4 Illustrator. This is second only to to the Model 98/98 Custom.
Marker Setup: ACI F4 Illustrator DX. This is the one I am reveiwing. It comes with An ACI 4-Stage Sub-Zero Expansion Chamber, 12" ACI Zero Gravity, Bottom Line feed, Etc.
Get a venturi bolt for sure. This gun alone will get a lot of ball breakage if your Velocity is too high and you do not have a venturi bolt. Also get a high volume cell. It will help with the Shoot Down when using CO2 which is what basically everyone uses on this gun.
Strengths: Well I did the math and you get about 88 balls per Ounce of CO2. Now that may not seem like much but that is about 1,000 shots per 12 oz. and about 1,600 shots per 20 oz. I will play all day with one 20 oz. and still have masses amount of CO2 left. If you don't want to buy several tanks or want to run out in the middle of a game, this is the gun for you. And this gun has great accuracy, great range, and if you get a venturi bolt you will have very little ball breakage as long as you get an electric hopper so you can feed the balls faster.
Weaknesses: Without a venturi bolt and an electric hopper you will break a lot of balls. And the barrel that you will get with this gun has a bore size of about .685 so only small bore balls will work to the guns full potential. One more thing is the trigger pull. If you have it over the velocity of about 285 fps the trigger pull is not that great. I can shoot around 8 balls a second with it but I have a great trigger finger
Conclusion: You want an excellent beginner gun or great step up gun if you just began go get this. But because they do not make these anymore you will have to pick up an F4 Illustrator TP. It comes standered with the Venturi Bolt and the high volume cell. And you can get a double trigger for it which will make it more comfortable and you will be able to shoot faster.
