Recommended
Upgrades:
If serious about it, new barrel. Doesn't really matter which, since your style of play determines the barrel you choose
Strengths: It talks - - How sexy is that? and Vibrates, now THAT"s sExY!!
Nice cuts and colors. Looks neat with clear grips, lcd, and milling
Can rip streams pretty fast
The high rise stacks about 5 so no chopping problems in snap shooting
Ok balance w/ the dropforward
Nice shot counter, game timer, etc
Trigger is light, grips are comfortable
Spyder insides, so replacement is easy
Weaknesses: It's quite hefty/ heavy.
The high rise is really tall. But why would anyone come over the top anyways??
The stock barrel is.. well, stock. Shoots ok, but nothing great
Kick is evident when shooting
Spend the extra 100 on an Impulse
Conclusion: Great marker from a great name in paintball. If you're stepping up from a mechanical marker, this is a good way to go. But still keep in mind that it's a blowback wih a e-frame. I would like to take this moment to dispell those who say this. This marker is NOT better than an impulse or bushmaster, which are true electros. They actually house a solenoid which activates the striker, as where the e-frame simply controls the sear on which the hammer operates. The solenoid/striker on true electros provides less kick, is longer lasting, is more efficient, and is Very simple to maintain. Don't get me wrong, the JT 6.0 is a great marker, and can compete with other electros. But still, the impulse is better. So, if you have the extra 100, spend it on the impulse. But if you want a good marker, or are looking for a backup, this is a good way to go. But whoever thinks this is better than an impulse, bushy ,or any like marker is wrong.
I recommend this to those stepping up from the mechanical markers, or those looking for a decent backup.
