Review: Fantastic choice if you are looking for a good balance of accuracy, and maneuverability.
I've heard some people claiming that it is very loud. I compared it with stock for A-5, custom and Dye Excel for 98 cust. - It is somehow louder, but not at the point where it would get you in trouble (unmask your position,...) Paintball is a close proximity game, so loudness of the source of fire is not as much of an issue as it is in a real combat (trust me).

On the other hand - it is very accurate. I was zeroing my BSA red dot with this barrel and let me tell you what could I do with it coupled with BSA:

I used Draxxus Inferno and Dusk (yes, Dusk. I can not practice wtih $70 pballs).

At 50 ft I can hit the 12 ounce plastic bottle from the first shot.

At ~80 ft. I can hit the same bottle 80-90% of the time. I can definitely hit the helmet.

At ~105 ft. I can hit the helmet 50% of the time. Using red dot with some manual elevation compensation I could hit the water pipe (6") at some 110-120" once out of two or three trials. This is as far I went during my target practice.

I also practiced with mechanical sights and results were very encouraging. I did not measure exact distances, but at some 80-100 ft I could hit the 10-20" tree trunk 70%+ of the time.
Conclusion: If you like Tippmann A-5 or 98 custom. if you like to play fast, move, crawl and attack and still be accurate at 30-90 ft distances then you need this product. I can not think of anything better.
