Upgrades:
Barrel first, although I've seen worse stock barrels. It already has the vertical adaptor, so it is very easy to put on an expansion chamber.
Strengths: Good performance for the price. Can be customized for cheap.
Weaknesses: Limited ROF, very high pressure, outdated powerfeed
Review: This is basically a beginner's marker. It is priced for younger players and those on a tight budget. However, for around 100 dollars, it performs better than expected. It comes with the vertical adaptor for an expansion chamber, and takes Spyder threaded barrels. It does run at about 800 psi, so a thicker paintball is preferred. The double trigger is fine for its job, but will limit high rates of fire. These markers come with either left or right handed powerfeeds, which lets you pick the proper side for your dominant hand, but crossfeeds have become outdated by vertical feeds. While they may hide your hopper better, it's only if you're coming out of the appropriate side of a bunker, and they require unbalanced, clumsy elbows. If Rebel would throw on a vertical feed, this 'gun would really be something.
Conclusion: Very good decision for its target market. If you prefer a powerfeed over a vertical, take this over the similar Spyder Victor.
