Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Most guns are designed to position your tank against your shoulder, forcing you to operate your marker at an uncomfortable distance. The FighterX Drop Forward repositions your tank for increased comfort, balance, and accuracy. Don't settle for bland, low quality components; trick your gun out with the sleek, durable, and extremely lightweight Drop Forward. The FighterX Drop Forward model 5 is designed to be used on most guns, including those with limited space between the grip and foregrip.
Product Availability 
The Fighter X Sports Drop Forward 5.0 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Products Used:
Basic drop forwards on Victor, and Xtra. This is much better.
Marker Setup: Spyder Xtra Grip Frame, Spyder Victor Body, Demon 14 inch fade black barrel, 32 degrees '03 expansion chamber, fighter X sports 5.0 drop forward, 12 oz CO2 tank.
Strengths: Strong, black, positions tank WAY forward.
Weaknesses: None that I can think of....doesn't come with Spyder holes?
Review: I was looking for something to drop my tank far forward to minimize the overall length of my gun after I put a 14inch barrel on it. This is excellent! It's thick, but light so it's really sturdy. It's not going to bend or get dinged or dented easily. I use a 12 oz tank, so it's not the heaviest, but not the lightest either. It puts it WAY forward, I think the 7.0 might have been a bit TOO long for me though. That's why I went with the 5.0. If you don't have an expansion chamber, the 7.0 might work a bit better for you. Anyways, my only beef is that they haven't come out with one that has the offset spyder holes yet, but maybe in the future. Other than that, I would highly reccomend this drop forward.
Conclusion: For the price (get it off E-bay direct from the dealer) it's wonderful. It's not pretty, but it works.

Products Used:
NW Products 8" On/Off Cradle, Pyscho Balistics Drop Forward, Custom Products Flame Drop Forward, Shocktech Drop Forward
Strengths: The Price! I got it for $7.99 on ebay. It wasn't an auction, just a buy it now straight from the company. The design is genious! Not only does it move your tank up, it also puts a slight tilt on it. But it isn't too much tilt, and also not too little. The black finish looks really good. The end where it mounts to your gun has a slit instead of holes. This alows for fine adjusting. Nice idea.
Weaknesses: The gun mount end as I described before seems like it could slide around if it wasn't tightened all the way. It has never happend, but it's a possibility. Some locking washers should do the trick though. I also wish it was a rail mount instead of a standard 2-hole configuration. The reason for this is after you put on a standard bottomline the asa is moved back, because the screws have to be in front of the ASA on a bottomline. It it were a dovetail the ASA would be directly below the drop forward's end. The solution to this problem is to either get the 7.0 model, the 7 inch one, or do like I did and get a Check-It products Uni-Mount. This bottomline has a cage design that allows the ASA to be directly under the screws.
Conclusion: I gave this a 9 because its excellent quality for the price you pay for it. Although there may be better drop forwards out there, you wont find one for even double this one's price. Perhaps in the future they will make a dovetail version.
