Upgrades:
Just upgrade to a LPR to simplify the low pressure adjustment. I had mine tuned and a LPR added to my BBT for only $115. It took a very long time to get my marker back from the owner, Rich, but when I did it had the Full Fear Effect ($270 worth of work).

Weaknesses: No big compaines to turn to
Lack of aftermarket parts
Telling people about it
Review: The BBT is beautiful. It comes standard with lovely milling and super custom anodizing.

It is Balanced. You do not need a drop forward to balance out this very well designed marker.

This thing is light. About 2 ounces heavier than a 2003 PDS B2k, so about 2lbs 4-5 ounces. Even though the marker is light, it is 5 time more sturdy than any other marker I've held

I can fire the BBT fast at 5-14 balls per second.

Many would say that the marker does not determine accuracy, but for some reason I hit my intended target more now with the Tribal than with the Shocker or any other thing.

The marker is perfectly gentle on paintballs. I have yet to break a ball in the barrel or chop one in the breach. As a test, I taped string on a Marbalizer and put it half way in the breach, so that the bolt would impact the ball. I fired the marker 65 times (the bolt hitting the ball each time) and the bolt just retracted. The ball never broke. I never have to worry about cleaning up a mess inside my Tribal, and I never even take a squeegee on the field with me.

You will attract a bunch of attention from people gawking at the Tribal.
Conclusion: I got mine for a great deal on eBay. Way less than a Bushmaster or Impulse. It performs better than anything. Better than Shockers, Angels and Autocockers.

It sincerely is the best paintball purchase I've ever made (and I've bought a grip of gear and markers). I wish I would have found out about this marker when I started paintball, so I wouldn't have made so many bad marker purchases. I am very happy. It rocks!!!

I've never given a product a 10, because I believe that is only for perfect quality. I believe a rating of 5 is average (I've given many products 5's). This Tribal is not perfect, because it can perform better with one or two upgrades, but it is way over average.
