Do a search there is a few huge threads on this. I vote Imp simply because it's an electro.

First off the evil omen is an electro as well!!! well in all honest i would say go for either a B2K3 or a Viking from what i hear the Omen isen't that great and also the implulse will cost almost a 1000 dollars to make a decent marker.

The difference between electro vs blowback isn't debateable for impy vs omen. The omen has a bit more kick than an impy, but is the kick noticable? NO! The omen wins hands down, more efficent, anti-chop, better trigger, better stock barrel, no performance upgrades needed besides a barrel kit if you want, so for the price of an upgraded imp, you could have got a better marker to start, like the B2k3 and Viking with WAS are both great choices if you don't get the omen.

haha, so un-true. its mainly due to people setting them up wrong. personally i would choose the omen, but thats me. i know coolt has his opinions. the omen is good and i liked it before i bought mine. then i decided to buy one.

thats the problem, its all i heard this and that. often times people hear blow back and think its a spyder clone, but it isn't.

it all comes down to preference and feel. try them out.

It basically is a Spyder clone, just a better Spyder clone.

Everything No it is kind of a Spyder design. Even a Impulse is a Spyder design. However the Omen is a blowback so it's more of a Spyder clone. I truthfully didn't mean anything bad calling it a Spyder clone, just that it is pretty much a Spyder clone.

It being a spyder clone means nothing, no performance difference, no nothing difference, so why you would take an impy just because it is an electro makes no sence, considering the omen is better than the impy and less the price.

less kick. but there isn't much at all with an omen. much less than a standard blowback.

i hate smart parts and even i would say that the impulse is better. I've heard that the omen shoots just like a spyder....loud..kicks

how about you actually shoot one. people on these boards that go by what they hear suck, because they can't offer any first hand advice. they don't kick nearly as much as a standard blow back, and no gun will ever be silent. you can make it quieter if you put a new barrel on it. you go hide in a bush and be quiet.
