Shocker - big old and slow compared to the Omen
Eblade Clocker - still clunky, obviously not made to be an electro
I also have an Impulse. The field I play at got an Omen for testing and it riiiiiips. Super accurate and super fast.
A barrel where you can size paint like the Pipe. The no drop on/off is perfect. Very nice stock set up.
Way too accurate for words & the cam-feed makes sure you don't break paint.
Only available in black.
Cam feed is much better than I thought it would be. It doesn't get in the way and it is nice to never chop paint, even when you outchase your hopper. I used it with an eggolution and it was bloody fast. I could outchase the egg with it, but it would never chop. It just dry fired a shot. The Omen is way faster than the eBlade. I've never even outchased a 12 volt rev with an eBlade but the Omen is faster than an Egg 2 cranked all the way up.
Well worth the money. I'm saving up for it. Super fast and easily as accurate as a cocker. Plus the on/off drop is very nice.

where the hell can u get an impy w/ vision and a halo b for $450?! an omen and an egg is $520-$530 and an impulse w/ vision and a halo is $675 e-pbo. who cares about the omen's internals if it functions as well as it does? Although, I do think its a little overpriced it is still a great gun And its easy as hell to outshoot a revvy with this "piece of crap" Have u even shot an omen that was properly tuned? I don't think you'd be dissing it if u had

side burns you dont know what you are talking about it is closed bolt and it is $400 oh wait isnt that the same as an impulse? O it is. I tottaly agree with hobbes. Before you talk do your research i suggest you go read up in the pmi forum.
the omen isn't exactly quiet. actually it is probably slightly loud. it is designed to operate below 500 psi. 250-500 i think. it is not super low pressure. it is a closed bolt gun which means the bolt is forward in the waiting position. there is no detent because the ball is actually loaded into the barrel. that is why a multi-bore barrel is nice and helps to keep your accuracy and velocity more constant. it has a 2 piece hammer assembly so when it is cocked only half of the hammer is back which allows the bolt and the rest of the hammer to be forward. it is kind of cool. this thing is definitely not a piranha clone. whoever said that obviously knows nothing about this gun and probably knows nothing about any gun so i would ignore him. the block assembly comes back when it is fired, like a cocker. the cam feed system is not at all like an A-5. it does not rotate. there are 2 reed-like thingies that are pushed in toward the chamber by the bolt each time it comes back. one of them shoves a ball in the chamber while the other stops halfway so the next ball on deck isn't loaded yet. it is kind of cool. it is kind of finicky to adjust. people who are breaking balls probably don't know how to adjust it correctly. you have to adjust the velocity by adjusting the pressure on the reg. and you have to adjust the re-cock pressure EACH time you mess with the reg. if the re-cock pressure is too high the bolt slams the ball too hard and breaks it.

wow they should post this as a "before you review try doing this" warning. This needs to be stickied or something just so everyone realizes they have to adjust the recock each time the adjust velocity.
what is side burns talking about?!?!?!? the piranah is a blow back and the omen is closed bolt like a cocker. how can the internals be the same? i hate stupid newbs who think they are smart. and whats up with the little comment about get an imp with vision and a halo? omens and NON-vision imps are the same price doofus. check youre facts before you flame.
Fatboy, Of course u wont be able to outshoot a 12v revvy w/ an eblade. The eye wont let u outshoot ur hopper. if u have an egg,and u put on the factory fast setting, u'll be able to shoot as fast as your hopper can feed.You can also easily tweak the eblade trigger to make it ideal.
