Review: Ok I just got the marker less than a month ago. Nothing can explain how good it feels to open the box of the newest paintball marker from WDP. I have worked my way up from spyders to impulses, now to Angels.

At frist glance the Angel 4 looks great. I know the dam pressure guage in front of the trigger guard looks messed up, and yes I would also love to meet the smart guy who put that there but getting over that I think the guage has helped me out alot. It is always nice to know how much pressure the gun is at. Just the feel of this marker is amazing. It is so dam light that it is crazy. It is also pretty small compared to other markers out there. The milling is sweet and the gun just seems to have this great flow when you look at it from front to back.

Now performance, when I first fired the marker the trigger was not adjusted and it was a pain in the ass to get it to fire. Once I fooled around with the trigger this marker shoots like nothing I have ever seen. The trigger setup is at first a pain in the ass but you get used to how to fiddle with it. Word of advice don't set the trigger wheels to short b/c when you tighten the screw down the wheels don't move but it seems to shorten the trigger more and that will led to the marker not firing. So when adjusting the trigger by the wheels maybe move them one click more than what you wanted and when you tighten it, than you should have it perfect. As for the other screw which goes into the marker to hit the board to get it to fire, this is easy to mess around with. Get the trigger where you want it with the wheels, than just move the screw inside the gun till it fires and your ready to go. It will take you about 400 shots to get the trigger right. Well that is what my counter said. Def buy a freak kit and get a shorter barrel. I have not fired it with the regular stock barrel on there b/c most of the time they are crap so I did not even bother. After market barrels are always the best way to go. The freak kit is perfect since you can match up the bore size so you don't break paint. The evo 2 I had worked pretty well. I got the marker up to 16 balls per second and i got nervous since i might out shoot the hopper. So that is why I say get the Halo B which is rated at 22 bps. Oh yeah turn off the sensi mode. I know it is a good thing to have but when you want to get maximum bps than i would turn it off. I could not shoot more than 12 with that mode on. It would always stop and wait a sec and that would piss me off. Lets see what else. Oh yeah the gated feed and twist lock on the hopper is great. This gun will make any hopper fit like a glove. Nothing beats just throwing any hopper on there and twisting the feed neck down and then running off to play. The gated feed helps to make sure that the marker can fire in different angles in which a paintball would go back into your hopper. Game timer is def another great option. It has 3 alarms which you can program to go off when you want. Each alarm has a different vibration so you know how much time is left in the game. That option is def great for everyone on your team (just as long as you don't get out)


Conclusion: If you got the money spend it. I know alot of people hate angels b/c they think they are not the best but they are. I must say nothing shoots like an angel. The older angels shot like crap and it was more accuracy by volume but with the angel 4 it is accuracy along with volume.

Out of curiosity... you put the sensi modes as a strength... yet in the review, you said to turn it off. I was wondering, why the contradiction?

well if you want to not chop a ball i would leave it on but if you want a high rate of fire than turn it off. So i put it as a strength cause it is a good option to have
