Experience:
1 year
Similar
Products Used:
tippman 98 custom, spyder esprit. This is a little more accurate then the tippman stock, but that might be because of the barrel. It is a lot better then the esprit.
Marker Setup: 32* icon, empire reloader, system x spyder feed port, 16 oz. tank
Recommended
Upgrades:
must; in order: electronic hopper, aluminum feed elbow, new barrel; should get: regulator.
Strengths: fast trigger, drop forward, open window for easy switching of dip switches.
Weaknesses: needs a new elbow, and needs a new barrel . grip frame is not water proof.
Review: everyone will probably tell you not to get the e-99 because the dip switches are hard and the guns not worth the extra money. they will also tell you to get the e-99 instead of the icon. get the icon. it's the same price as the imagine, except the same as the e-99. the dip switches aren't hard at all. there is a hole in the window on the grip frame, and all you have to do to switch the dip switches is stick an allen wrench through that. the drop forward is perfectly perfect with a 16 ounce tank. it's a little to low for the stubby one though. the drop forward is also good for a 12 ounce tank. the ball detent is a newer type then the e-99 ball detent. you can adjust the rate of fire for 5,6,7,8,9, or 10 bps on fully automatic, 3- burst, and 6-burst. i can shoot AT LEAST 8 bps on semi, when i try. it comes with papers for a manufacturer limited 1 year warranty in the manual. this gun is not heavy!
Conclusion: i think you should get this gun. i love mine. i got mine for 20 bucks cheaper then the e-99 and i'm glad i got this instead.GET IT!

I got an icon led and i think it's perfect. When i ordered it i also got an empire reloader. i need to know if the following will suit my gun well (32 degrees night stick, flames drop forward, superfly bolt) and also, is a n2 system really that neccesary. Im gonna buy one if it is. Thanx

Hey one thing you dont need for this gun is a regulator, "it is a high-pressure gun", quotes from the 32 degrees techs, Therefor just get a high pressure N2 tank and you're all set!

if you get a high end marker, like an impulse...you need compressed air (please don't call it nitrogen!!!)
