Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
Planet Eclipse and E-blade WGP.
Marker Setup: Off the shelf item. Marker came set up from factory.... Used a nitro duck perest tank and Halo B loader
Recommended
Upgrades:
Maybe a barrel. I like the Dye ULs.
Strengths: The marker looked great. The dragon milling and ano were of very good quality.
Weaknesses: The Panles on the grip did not fit perfectly.
Review: The marker looks and feels excellent. The ano work and mill were very nice. I used this marker for only one day. During that time it worked flawlessly. I put a case and a half of paint thru the marker during the day. The marker absolutly ripped! Out of the box the marker was shooting at 260fps. I did not change any settings or make any adjustments on the marker. I simply took it out of the box and chronod the marker. I left it at 260 and used it for the day. The marker was extremely easy to shoot fast. There was no noticable barrle rise while shooting. The marker was also very consistant. Velocity did vary a bit, however, I think that was due to the fact that it was a brand new reg and marker( +-8). The marker cycled smoothly and was vary quiet.
The only tings I would change on the marker would be the drop forward. I prefer not to use one. Also the barrel. Its a personal bias, I like prefer the Dye UL or Boomer.
Aside from that nothing.
Conclusion: I do not care for the drop. It put the bottle abit to forward for me. However thats just preferance. The plastic frame panles did not fit perfectly flush with the frame. There was also a small gap where the eye wires come out to the eye cover. Thats the best nit picking I could do. The marker absolutly ROCKED! I was able to shoot faster wi it than my Timmi with SOB. Its up there with the WAS! I highly recomend that you use a HALO B with this marker. So as to fully enjoy how fast this thing can rip. I am not sure what these things are retialing for. However, performance wise, they are up there with Planet and WGP E-blades. I gave it a 9 simply becuase of the things I pointed out. These are miner issue which can be easily fixed! All I can say is, "I want one"!
