Products Used:
This thing's unique...but not in a bad way like the M1 Viper
Marker Setup: 2nd Gen Grey Numatix
Freak System - 12" AA front
68cu 4500psi Crossfire N2 tank
Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel - I couldnt find any paint to fit my barrel(CRUCIAL for cockers), but to be honest I didnt try hard, I was looking at buying a Freak kit anyway. That and the fact that its somewhat loud(I didnt really care) is the only downside I can see of the barrel.
Strengths: see review
Weaknesses: see review
Review: Okay, I've had this for a while, and I must admit, I'm impressed.
Here are the strengths

*LIGHT!- This is the lightest 'cocker out there. No joke. Absolutely the lightest. I couldnt believe how light it was.
*Lifetime warranty, AWESOME customer support - guys are nice, will always help you out...dont believe me about the warranty, check their site and read the manual.
*FAST- It comes from the factory timed and with the shortest and best trigger set up. The trigger has a nice rolling thing that's cool.
*Shortest ram in the world
*Very small 3-way and front pneumatic setup
*Kickass body, milling
*Don't bother messing with Worr's way of changing velocity - you can adjust your reg on this gun
*Delrin bolt, non of that venturi crap
*Small dropforward thing I really like...
*So many features and accessories already on its incredible - HEDLOK feed, etc.
*READY TO GO RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX(assuming you have a N2 tank, hopper, mask)
*NOT TOO EXPENSIVE FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS!!! Compare 600(ready to go out of the box, timed and everything) do like Dye's ultralight(800ish, gotta install macrolines, etc., and its still heavier than numatix's)

Weaknesses
*They say Big Ball fits their barrel but I tried and it was too small....maybe it was just that paint or something but still - make SURE your paint fits your barrel before taking this to the field!! I wasted a day not knowing about paint-barrel matches(never had a cocker before, I just assumed they were all the same size).
Conclusion: I love this thing. Hybrid did an awesome job. They used to just make upgrades, but I guess they made so many upgrades that they made a gun with them all, but didnt make it look tacky and mis-matched...I love it!
