Experience:

Products Used:
Spyder aggressors, i like my fokus
Spyder Extras,
Shutters
bone daddys
and lots of others as I run a field
Marker Setup: Fokus 2k3 with standard barrel, 12 volt revolution, and 47cui hpa, fokus electronic trigger
Recommended
Upgrades:
an aggitated hopper is a must to keep the balls flowing smoothly, electronic trigger, and they run nice on hpa
Strengths: accurate, quiet, fast, simple, quick stripping, and very sexy looking.
Weaknesses: some two peice barrels are misalinged, check the sear if double feeding
Review: I like my fokus, my first marker was a bone daddy bought from a local department store to find out about paintball as I wanted to set up an indoor, see Final Impact in New Zealand, we got aggressors for our field markers and I got a Fokus 2k3 to evaluate as well, needless to say the Fokus became mine and as I play most days I have got to know it very well, we now have three Fokus 2k3s in our club.

First check the alignment on the two piece barrel and get your supplier to replace if it is misaligned, polish out the marks on both the breech and bolt after you have sent a box of paint down it, polish any sharp edges of the front of the bolt, check that the ball detent is working and tighten in if nessecery. Watch for doublefiring and check for wear on the sear and hammer, get your supplier to sort out this problem, it shouldnt cost you at all.

I run my Fokus on hpa, it runs good like this and I get very few ball breakages with the aggitated hopper, we have a lot of players come to our field with all sorts of markers, and though I find the expensive ones cool, I like my Fokus.

That said, I would like to play with a 2003 shocker, update,
I spent several days evaluating a 2003 shocker, nice but I sent it back, some idiot had used it before I got it and it leaked, I gave up when the only o rings left to replace were the ones under the solenoid, I might look at the Dynasty Edition though, I am still playing with my reliable Fokus! not so many o rings!
Conclusion: This is a great marker for the money, if you are patient with it and spend a bit of time getting used to it the people you play with will soon "FEAR THE FOKUS"
This is not a top level marker but is easily entry level for competitive tournament play
In this price range 9 / 10
