Experience:

Products Used:
Tippman Pro-Lite

Marker Setup: F4 Illustrator, J&J Ceramic or Dye B/S, ACI Sub zero expansion chamber
Recommended
Upgrades:
Pretty sweet out of the box -
ACI 4 stage
regulator
J&J Ceramic barrel (hope it's as quiet as the stock one)
Strengths: Great looking gun! (Blue/purple/chrome)
Inexpensive
Very easy field strip through AutoCocker style push-pin
Extremely quiet with stock barrel
Stock barrel has decent accuracy/ consistency
Easy upgrades if you know what to look for - accepts Spyder barrels
Good ROF
Thumbscrew velocity adjust with allen lock down
Hasn't chopped ONE BALL in 6 months of use
Weaknesses: The ASA/HVC mount won't stay tight despite repeated tightening of the phillips head screw that holds it in place. It doesn't leak air, in fact the assembly does tighten up up when you put air on it. The sight rail flexes too much to stay put. My son just took it off because it rattled.
Conclusion: Overall this is a great gun as it is. A little work puts it in the 'killer' category. Some thoughtful upgrades, rather than just tossing on Nitro and every gimmick out there will produce a very sweet piece. It has very good performance out of the box and looks great. The only down side is that I wish we had gotten the bottom line instead of the Vertical. For under $100 this is a fantastic deal that I would recommend as an alternative to your basic Spyder/Tippman/Rebel buyer.
Rating:
9 out of 10
