Products Used:
Rentals: Prolites, M98
Marker Setup: Rebel '02 Bottomline stock out of the box
Strengths: This is a good starter marker with room to grow. The design is makes for a low profile, light weight, and compact marker. The 8in barrel points very easy, is reasonably accurate, and be upgraded to any Spyder compatable barrel. The rubberized 45 grips are comfortable and prevent fatigue. The marker accepts Spyder compatable gas through the grip, expansion chambers, and is upgradeable to High Pressure Air (hpa). The marker is reliable and I'm starting to take out people with three times the $ spent on markers;-)
Weaknesses: My problems have to do with minor quality control issues.
First, when you get the marker check the TIGHTNESS of all screws. Don't overtighten but make certain it's "snug". I found a gripframe screw loose after the first 500rnds. I snugged it and have now shot over 1500 rnds without a hitch. Second, the Rebel can be finicky with paint. I deal with this by adjusting the powerfeed as I describe in the following forum under Fastlearner: http://www.pbreview.com/forums/showthread.php?s=b

Conclusion: If you're the type who changes your own oil and you don't have a big budget, seriously consider this marker. It takes a minor attention to detail with cleaning and maintenance. You can't get a Stingray setup from Wal-mart at that price and the Rebel is a much better gun. If you tighten the screws and set the powerfeed to match your paint, the marker functions flawlessly. I don't give 10's because there is no perfect marker. I'm giving it an "8" because of the loose screw and I had to figure out the powerfeed trick on my own.
