Products Used:
F-5, Racegun and scores of Angels, Shockers, Emags, Bushmasters and Imp's (I like changing guns)
Marker Setup: Won this frame at a Tourney and was planning on selling it until I decided to try it out on my ANS. I've been a slide trigger shooter for a little over a year now and didn't plan on changing. It's not impossible to install yourself. A good working knowledge of Cockers and electronics is all you need. If you can time a cocker you can time this frame. If you're not mechanically inclined, send it in and save yourself the headache. It took around and hour to get it on and timed and when I was done it was amazing. This thing is fast, not intimidator or Matrix fast but it'll go 13 easily. One thing you need to do is tighten EVERYTHING on your gun. After my first day of play it had loosened about everything on the gun. A little lock tight on everything is a good idea.
Strengths: Fast and easy to shoot. If you love your cocker but want a little more speed and ease of shooting (for those people lugging big packs) then this is definitely for you.
1.Stacking up the paintballs with your cocker at 13 bps is good.
2.Compatible with regular cocker parts. If you want to change your gun it's ok.
3.Ease of LCD use. I didn't read anyone else saying this, the LCD menus are easy to get around and simple. The counter is easy to use along with changing your BPS and actually timing the gun. You don't need a masters to use the LCD and it doesn't take an hour to scroll through.
4.Lighter than expected, I was expecting a cramped frame that felt like lead.
5.Simplicity, this frame seems to be based on KISS thinking (keep it simple stupid)
Weaknesses: I won this so price wasn't a huge deal for me but I must say, I'd have a tough time sticking out 500 bucks for this without seeing it. If you're looking into this frame you should go find someone who has one and shoot it. That holds true for everything in paintball though :)
1. PRICE
2.Eats batteries pretty fast. I can only get around 15,000 shots off of a 9v. That's not horrible but it's not good.
3.Everyone hates the grips and so do I. If Centerflag doesn't make some stickies for this frame hopefully someone will.
4.You need quality pneumatics up front on your gun and good reg's. If you don't have them you'll need to buy them or turn the frame down.
5.Chops paint unless you have quality gear. You need an Antichop bolt or a Halo or BOTH. I use a Halo B on my ANS and it feeds fine. My revy just couldn't keep up with the gun.
Conclusion: Great frame but it's pricey, especially if you don't have a good front end on your gun and a Halo. You'll definitely need to invest in those if you want to shoot your cocker at 13bps. I've yet to have it fail on me, I've probably put 50,000 cycles on my gun and it still works great. If you want a cocker that needs batteries this is for you. You won't be disappointed.
