Strengths: This marker is extremely fast and very easy to shoot fast even if you are not the greatest trigger man out there. This gun will make you fast.
I have had it for about 2 months now, and I've probably shot 10,000 rounds through it, and NEVER CHOPPED a ball.
I have never written a review before, but I am so happy with the performance of this gun that I was compelled to sign up a write this review. I want to share my good experience.
I am used to shooting my Dark Cocker -w/ hinge trigger- and I can rip that pretty good, but when I got my matrix I started shooting ropes the first time I played with it.
I bought my Matrix used from ebay; it was already 3 months old and already had all the previously mentioned mods on it. So, I really don't know how they shoot out of the box, but it is a really sweat marker all modded up.

Just a few more things:
-I am not one of those people who loves everything I buy just because I can't admit a bad buying decision. So, if I say I like something it is because it is truly unique in its design and/or performance.
-I have shot shockers, Impulses,bushmasters, and autocockers, all of which are very decent markers, however, it is my opinion the Matrix is far superior.

+(s)
- very-very-FAST
-despite what I've read, not any heavier than and Impulse or Shocker. (I've actually weighed them)
-very-very-simple design and simple to maintain. (only gives you problems if you do not clean regularly. And forget about all that leaking B.S. you read about; that's from people who treat their Matrixes like a tippmann. No more maintenance required than any other upper-end electro marker out there, except the simplicity of the Matrix design makes it a lot easier & faster to trouble-shoot and fix.
-the absolute quietest marker I have ever heard.
-undetectable recoil-NONE-
-true close bolt accuracy and distance.
-able to shoot the brittlest paint and not break or chop.
-fairly price when compared to its performance and other comparable markers.
Weaknesses: -(s)
-uses a lot of air (but no more than comparable low pressure markers)
-not as popular as some other markers, limiting aftermarket accessories availability.
-kind of a tall profile (maybe try a warp feed)
-very simple/plain milling (kind of ugly compared to other markers)
Lastly and probably the biggest negative: It shoots so fast that I use almost a case of paint every time I play. This can get expensive if you are not sponsored.
But, you do get a lot more kills!
Conclusion: I have to strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a long range, accurate, quiet, and supper fast marker for around $1000, and that is easy to maintain.
