Teh Fool Sunday, January 25th, 2004
Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
Paintball
Experience:
1 year
Similar
Products Used:
Spyder Victor (doesn't compare, even with upgrades)
Tippmann A-5 (with RT, faster ROF, but not as accurate and more bulky)
Marker Setup: Blazer BZ834
Nickel vented barrel
Nickel highlights
45 Benchmark frame
Cocobolo grips
BSA 30mm red dot sight
Recommended
Upgrades:
Chances are you will order all the upgrades you need if you order this marker new. But I suggest:
45 grip frame (everyone says it is great, I haven't had experience with the default trigger though, only with the 45 and I like it)
Stabilizer
Bottom line if you like it, personally I just use a vertical bottle setup.
BSA red dot : Helps me aim a lot faster and looks good. Maybe more experienced people don't need it, butit makes me more accurate. Get the 30mm with 3/8 dovetail mounts from sportsmansguide.com, it's only $27.
New grips, I carved my own from cocobolo and it looks real nice, you can pick up a chunk of cocobolo from a woodcarving store for under $10, and if you have a marginal amount of skill and a power sander you can make your own grips. Or just buy some, if you got the 45 grip frame it should be easy to pick up some nice grips.
Strengths: Accurate, Small & Lightweight, awesome stock barrel, fast ROF, nice trigger
Weaknesses: Small, some people can't aim it as well
Review: I got my marker new off Ebay for $350. This was an excellent deal, and was certainly worth it. However it still would have been worth it had I paid the $700 that the marker is worth.

I haven't really had experience with that many other markers, just my old Spyder Victor and my friend's A-5 (which cost about the same as my Blazer). As expected the Blazer outperformed both.

Anyway I really like this marker, one of the main reasons I got it was because it is unique. With the wood grips it has a really unique look, and I am also working on making a wood stock to attach to the grip frame.

This marker also is very gas efficent and easy to maintain.

If you have any doubts about getting this, check out the Palmer Owner's Group (POG) section of Paintmagazine.com. Go to

if the reviews here don't convince you, what people say on the forum probably will. But once you get one palmer's marker, you will want more! (My sights are set on a nasty (double-barreled) pump).
Conclusion: Buy this marker used if you can to save money. But personally I think it would be worth it even to pay the full price to get one new.
