as toward the top someone said ppl with matrix's get checked more for ramping... that is a negative. Only dm4/5 users who use advantage chips.
with dm3's u dont have to worry about ramping, or any major bounce issues. Ive raked 21 on mine,and got 23 on sweetspot.
...actually there are Advantage pb ramping chips for dm3's, and you can adjust setting on most boards to bounce...

I have had a led trix and I currently own a viking. I loved the way my trix felt, but the problem was I had to get eyes put in it and I had to get a bolt kit for it to match my viking.
To sum it up I could drop a grand into a trix and have one hell of a trix or I could buy a viking and throw on a mitey max and I'm set. At least in my situation. Also as blue said it's all what you feel most confterable shooting. Get out there and shoot every marker you can then decide.

It doesnt matter which you buy, they both have eyes, both are fast, both are accurate. You will need a bolt kit for the matrix though to be on par with the efficintcy of the Viking. The Viking is easier to maintain, Im not saying a trix is hard, just that the Viking is easier. Depending on which Matrix you get, it will weigh about the same as a stock unmilled Viking. You can get multiple milled versions of both. The Matrix has more upgrades available. Stock against stock I would take the Viking mainly because it wont require any upgrades, such as a bolt kit, to perform at its top level. But as stated before, they are both high end guns and will perform about the same. Shoot both then decide.

True, just its not a big problem,bc its not all that necessary. Plus stock board is fast enough mines hard to bounce which i like, but its still really fast.

Viking, no doubt. Mine shoots mad ropes and the best thing is I didn't have to buy a bolt kit for it. Some grips, eyes and a rail. thts all Ive bought. What is the point when you have to spend tons on top of your 850$ or whatever just to make it just as good as something stock?

Every so often I wonder if my gun is as good as all the others out there, and yes it is. The gun amazes me everytime I use it. I won't trade it for anything, I mean anything.

coming from a trix owner and someone who has used a viking, they will both shoot equaly rediculously fast and accurate but the trix is better because it doesnt weigh 50 lbs.

yeah IMO the only thing that is bad about them, is that they are bricks, they dont look great, large and heavy. in todays world, that is exactly oposite of what people want. if you could take viking performance and put it in an ego yes. but in terms of acutally playing with one.....i would not consider it when my price range includes pm6s e tek egos shockers etc, which are a ton lighter smaller with more upps avaliable (im talking stock viking....not those super sweet milled ones). i knew a guy with a viking. he sold it fast. he said yeah it shoots sweet, but everything else besides that was bad (very heavy, very large, not a lot of aftermarket support...it just want as nice to play with as newer guns).

so yes, with just how teh gun shoots, they are some of the best. in terms of the gun in actual gameplay....i would say it is very lacking.
