Products Used:
Tippmann 8 custom w/ Flatline barrel system and auto response trigger
Spyder Flash LCD
Marker Setup: Spyder Em1 w/ Swan Creek N-bolt, 14in Dye boomstick,custom double trigger job, gen x regulator, 68 ci Crossfire Nitro
New barrel, recommend a boomstick which works well for me, definetly Nitro or Compressed air noting that Co2 will short the selenoid if moisture gets into it, 12v Revolution and Swan Creek N-Bolt if you dont want to break balls often, and a new regulator if you can afford it.
Strengths: After the minimal upgrades the gun breaks very few balls. The adjustable trigger enables you to set the trigger pull to your liking. After a new barrel and bolt the gun is very accurate and not nearly as loud as previously. The gun is very easy to clean with the bolt and i personally like the placement of the foregrip. The gun is very affordable as of now, but will no longer be sold after the Em1 Modified as released. Pick it up why you can.
Weaknesses: The regulator isn't very consistent. Without the LCD screen it is difficult to change your gun settings, seeing is that you have to get inside the grip to adjust the dip switches. The stock barrel isn't all that great, it wasn't very accurate for me and i tended to encounter ball breaks consistently at first. The gun is very loud, which makes it difficult to hold your position in woods games.
Conclusion: For the money this is definetly one of the better buys on the market. After using my Em1 for about 6 months and getting a Revolution I can usually shoot around 2000 balls without breaking. The gun is easy to clean with the disconnect pin through the bolt. The looks are a little plain, but a serious player doesn't pay any attention. The regulator is a little inconsistent, but I find that I can usually go onto the field and light up the competition pretty quickly. With a few upgrades this gun can compete with any gun under $1000.
