Upgrades:
ONLY thing that MAY need upgrading is the barrel!!!
dont touch anything else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Strengths: Well, this thing kicks A$$ but since most people read these reviews to learn about the gun i'll give you the lowdown:

Simpleness of use-
I took this out the other day to our local field for its first day of use (at least in my hands becuase the AirSmiths (ohh wait MASTERS) time these things so GREAT) and i was nervous at first cause i was scared that my 1000 baby was going to blow up when i aired it up....thats just me. Any way i aired it up and well it did the same thing all cockers do....nothing....such a releve that it didn't explode:) i pulled the trigger and it cocked...then again....it shoots...wow how hard!!!

Trigger/Frame-
This WGP frame is great (i have not shot any other WGP hinge than this one) its very smooth and quick sear/trigger retention is just about right (some say they would go lighter but then you get problems with the trigger reseting quick enough for it to work well with high rof...just leave it alone!) and the grips are farily comfretable but would go with stickys or the new ER timer grips! Saftey is average...ohh wait I need no stinkin safety! =VERY VERY SMOOTH

Looks and Weight-
HMMMMM.......the picture above doesn't do it justice, mine is red and with all of the sweet milling throughout the entire gun its very light, it gets alot of attention at my field (even though it was only there once so far)

Speed-
Speed is all about the the person shooting the gun (i've seen some kids with tricked out angels or who can't shoot any faster the the max speed of a pro-cabine (once again not a dis just fact) i can shoot fairly fast and as mentioned by a lot of people im not going to say i can shoot X amout of balls because even some of the fastest fingers max out at around 8-11 (on a good day) BUT i will tell you if your FAST or just plain SLOW you cant go wrong with this gun!!!

Operating Pressure/Chops
I'm not really sure about the operating pressure on this but i do know that its low pressure (around 200-230 psi) and the cocking pressure it amazingly low(its factory set so ill say again...DON'T CHANGE IT) thus it will stop on balls instead of cutting them into halfs. During the intire day (1500 paintballs) i BROKE thats broke mind you not chopped (its to lp to chop) in the very tipp of the barrel no big deal.

Accuracy-
Exelent... but let me tell you that a good bore match is more important than any thing else (with in reason, like a M98 with a perfect paint match is not going to soot any thing like a sonic with a perfect paint/barrel match...not a dis) so get a freak or the CP kit (CP may be better but i thinks it costs more). I used 2 kinds a paint durring the entire day-
Blaze-Accurate but WAY to small for the stock CP barrel (still good accuracy)
NelSplat-OK paint too big for the stock CP barrel (this can cause a decline in accuracy and possibly more BREAKs IN THE BARREL)

Gas Usage-
WOW very effeciant get around 1200-1500 shots on a 3000psi fill and it also very quiet!!! This is all thanx to the RED valve (not the color but the style)
DONT USE MICROLINE ON ANY GUN...JOIN THE "PBAUML" (paint ballers againt the use of microline!!!)
Must hove a high flow tank or you will get -/+10 at the crono and terrible drop of (hey the tank I use is not high flow but it still works but no ware near how good it would work with say a max-flo or conquest)

Benifits of Low Pressure-
-Better Gas Usage
-Quieter
-Much Easier On the Balls
-Easier on internals
Weaknesses: Most of the problems on a stock cocker and even on some higher end cockers such as the Black Magic and STO have been fixed

THESE ARE ALSO GOOD THIS BUT BAD THINGS ON OTHER COCKERS COMPARING THE TWO (THERE REALLY ISNT ANY THOUGH)
Cocking Pin Coming lose-
the sonic hammer is absolutly vibrationless witch mean the cocking pin will not come lose

Velocity adjutments-
No longer made with IVG sqrew not velocity adjustments are mad through the Gladiator Reg This is good you can change over the crono!!!

Spring Vibration-
on a stock cocker you may notice that if you cock the cocking rod and drop the sear of it (pull the trigger) that you will get alot of vibration this gun has none

Nothing bad about the gun in my eyes but if you want blazing hot speed go ahead and by almeans get an angel!!!!
Conclusion: If you have the green i would highly recomend buying this gun, but for rec players sake do not use it in rec ball this is a tournemnt level gun......use it that way

2k1 Sonic Cocker with Free matching barrel and free shipping
CHECK IT OUT

Giving it a ten because it is the best paintball gun money can by right now!!!!!
