'99 cocker - well modified - fast, but a chopper
Spyder TL - reliable old standby
Eclipse Factory Team Eblade - stock save for a 0-ring feedneck
68/3000 HPA tank with dynaflow reg on eclipse dropforward
Halo is a must
Does not chop, and RIPS out the paint - very smooth feeling and quiet
It's too easy to blow a whole hopper off the break
I have never shot a better gun. I've borrowed friends impulses, angels, timmys - nothing has the smooth feel under fire of the eblade. Gas efficiency is incredible.
Magnetic / optic trigger is easily adjusted to get just as you like it - from really snappy to smooth to so light that you can breathe on it and the marker will fire.
It is important to read the manual - especially about how to dial in the eye. The eye is sensitive to paint color differences, and you have to make sure that you know what you are doing when you set the eye sensitivity, otherwise the marker will slow down to a slow rate to avoid ball chop. - so you don't want to be borrowing a buddy's paint on the field. However, if the eye starts acting up cause your paint changes mid-game, you can easily turn the eye off, and with a Halo, I still have yet to chop a ball.
The best part of this gun is the power it gives you, accuracy and speed means domination in speedball - I have no problem dominating firelanes - often contending with 2-3 opposing players - only problem is that you WILL shoot more paint.
Pay close attention to your battery life, if that goes on the field you will have big problems - I recomend getting cheap 9volts and just using a fresh one every time you play
This is the best gun I have ever owned and have ever fired. If you can afford one, get it.
