-Easily taken apart and re-assembled
-Overall good quality constuction
Weaknesses: -The hex screws that adjust the length can steadily back out over time
Review: I don't regret buying this frame at all! Everyone has a different preference, but this one is definately worth considering.
-It's very adjustable. There are two allen screws on the trigger that adjust the length; one halfway up the arm of the trigger itself that determines how far back the trigger can travel, and one sitting at the very top of the arm that determines how far the trigger has left to pivot. It's a minor point, but that second hex screw actually helps in timing by letting you indirectly decide how far into the pull you want the marker to fire.
-It's very easily taken apart and re-assembled which makes changing spring configurations easy and relatively painless.
-The trigger arm itself has a very wide body to it...it's only a matter of preference, but many people find the wider arm more 'natural' (for lack of a better word).

A few minor not-so-good things:
-For some odd reason one of the allen screws on mine is slightly prone to uncrew itself over time...not a major pain, it just means I've got play around with it every now and then. I think this was more of a random occurence however, I doubt every Blade has this problem.
-The hole where the actuating rod meets the frame is slotted (as opposed to a WGP Hinge which has a round hole). This may or may not be a bad thing depending on your preference, as it can definately help in timing the gun (by creating a clear distinction between firing and cocking cycles), but it makes the trigger pull slightly longer than it needs to be.
-A little pricey
Conclusion: In the pool of swing frames this one is definately a good choice. It's extremely well crafted, easily adjustable, and very easy to whip off fast strings of paint on. God Bless Planet Eclipse!
