It moves your tank 7 inches forward and 2.5 inches down. It also includes an ASA with a hole for a gauge if you need it. (The hole is plugged when you get it. You can either leave the plug in, or remove the plug to install a gauge.) It has holes drilled to mount on standard OR Spyder bottomlines. Will work with all CO2 tanks and screw-in nitrogen tanks. This design also features On/Off capabilities.
Because of the many different styles of marker that is available, we do not provide the mounting screws for this item. In most cases, the existing stock screws on your gun should work. It may also be necessary to purchase additional gas line and fittings to allow this product to work with your particular gun.
The Psycho Ballistics Pro-blade Drop Forward is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Balances gun well
Has room for a gauge
Just the right length
Absolutely nothing. I seriously cant think of anything
At first i was afraid that this DF was too much of a DF. But it turned out to be perfect. I love it! Well worth the price, which frankly isn't that much.
My favorite feature is the on/off capabilities. You cant really tell how it works in the picture. So i will explain. First unscrew the nob in front. Then put in the tank. When you screw the nob back in it pushes the pin in giving the gun air.
To take off the tank, you unscrew the nob again. Shoot out the remaining air. Then simply take it off. It is allot easier then turning it 3/4 turn and doing it that way.

This is a great produce from psycho ballistics. It fits a Nitro Tank perfectly, and looks great on any gun. I Think it works best with a 20oz or a Nitro/Compressed Tank just because thats how it evenly expresses the weiight. This Drop is worth every penny you spend, so don't hesitate to buy it.
I reccomend this to any seasonal player who will use it.

-I was worried that the drop was too much of a drop, but those fears quickly went away once installed.
-Give the marker a GREAT ballance with a 12-20oz tank. The center of gravity it right above you hand making for EASY one handed manuvering.
-Well Constructed, very solid feel
-Excellent price ($30 at countypaintball)
-Spyder or inline hole pattern, can be used on any marker or any frame
-You CANNOT use a tank with on/off valve. The knob on the tank WILL hit the frame. I know having two on/off's is redundent, but consider this if you already have a crop of tanks with on/off valves.
-On/Off knob has a cheap feel to it.
-Wish the on/off valve offered the functionality I have seen in other on offs. What I mean by that is that some on/off's I have used, if you continue to turn the valve it will discharge the pressure in the system. Now I have to turn the tank off, then dry fire the marker several times to depressurize the marker.
-Stock screws on my TL+ were too long to use. This will require you either finding a very uncommon screw size for the bottom of your spyder or taking the dremmel out and hacking a little bit off the screw.
This is a VERY nice drop forward for the price. Nice machining, functionality of a on/off valve. At least on my spyder it does a very good job of shortening the length of the marker and moving the center of gravity just above the trigger frame. This product could have been thought out a little better (i.e. does not work with on/off CO2 tanks, recessing the bolt heads on the spyder offset holes so you cannot use the stock bottomline screws.).

It works. It centers the gun very very well.
You had to use lock tite.
THE ONLY REASON THIS LEAKS PEOPLE IS CAUSE YOU DONT KNOW HOW AIR WORKS. If you would notice, the screws on both sides of the drop unscrew for a macro line or w/e. This is because of which side you want your line to go now. Now, so the other side of the drop doesnt leak, the side the macro isnt on, you have to use lock tite. Now was that hard? It is user error if it leaks. They did this for the user so the macro can be on each side.
Also, you dont need to turn the on/off all the way, you just need it to hit the pin and let the ari though, that is another reason why your gun may leak. It is logic and common sense, not product error that is wrong with this product.
This product is great and all the problems it has are user error.
Black Imagine with a Spyco Ballistics drop forward. Whisper barrel. 48ci 3000psi hp tank. 12 volt hopper.
The on-off will comes in hand. It fits on Spyders, looks good,its cheap.
ASA will come loose, but its easy to tighten. Dosn't come with screws.
I've only used these Drop Forward for around 3 months,but it improved my whole gun alot. It bothered me that the ASA came loose easily. When I played for the first time with it in speedball I shot like 20 times faster and nailed more people. I just wish I had bought it sooner.
BUY IT.Its a great Drop Forward. It cheap, the on-off works great, and it looks good. Oh yeah, it fits on spyders. Do yourself a favor and go out and buy one.

Does what it's supposed to do perfectly! And looks great doing it....
None that I've found.
Well as you can see from my experience I'm new to paintball, I purchase my Tippman after hearing what a great beginner gun it is but was a little worried. I just didn't like te feel of the gun. That was until I purchased this drop. As I was installing it I could tell right away I bought the right one. It moved to CO2 tank in to where the gun is now perfect for shooting.
I don't feel the plug leaking was a weakness like a few of the others. Kinda simple with any threaded fitting you encounter, TAPE IT!! Teflon tape was invented for a reason, use it....
I almost forgot the on/off valve. What a great option to have! Need I explain why?
To conclude if you aren't happy with the location of your guns tank buy this drop! Simple as that!

This is an excellent drop forward. One of the best I`ve ever used! I like to On/off valve, very handy. Co2 doesn`t burst out all over which is cool and I like how far it drops. It was hard to put on, but once it is on it`s pretty easy to take it off. I like it a lot. Suits me anyway.
VERY GOOD DROP FORWARD. ONE OF THE BEST. I RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE. SO BuY IT!i!i!i!i!

This is a solid drop forward. What else could I ask for?
The On/Off valve thing falls out every now and then. Screws not included.
This is a really nice drop forward for the price. After only paying $30 for a drop and ASA with and On/Off I had expected some corners to be cut. But so far there have been no shortcomings. After attaching the drop to my marker and screwing in the tank, I soon found that the drop did not wobble at all; very rock solid. The drop is cleanly cut and colored without any signs of machine work. The on/off is very well put together and comes in handy when I want to de-gas my marker between games.
This drop is very big. I picked it up because I started using a larger tank. If you are using a 68ci or even an 88ci I would recommend the CP Flame Drop or Shocktech drop. They are fit for more of that size.
The only problems I can think of that you will run into are only very minor and can be fixed. The first thing you should do with the ASA is if you are planning to keep the plug in and not install a guage, warp Teflon tape around it and re-insert it. The next problem is the ASA becoming loose from the drop. All you need to do it tighten the screws a bit and maybe even use some loc-tite. And the last, and most minor thing is that the drop doesn't include screws. No biggie... just run out to the hardware store and pick up two for about 5 cents.
I gave this product a 9.5 out of 10 mainly because nothing is perfect. But overall this drop is a perfect match for those who need big drops for big tanks without hurting the looks of the gun.

It's hard to tell if the valve is on/off.
I wanted a drop forward and when i saw this big boy i had to get it. I got it my local paintball store, and they installed it for free. The tank sticks out the back a few inches now on my marker rather than the entire tank sticking back. Its much easier for my to hold my marker one handed because the it is balanced. The 2 problems are that there is no indicator to tell if the valve is on or off, and if you have a tank with an on/off valve, it wont screw on all the way. To fix that problem i used a key and scratched at the spot where it stopped twisting into the ASA with a key, so it could fit. The tanks i have with the on/off valve now work securely. I wouldn't mess with the on/off valve when no tank is attached, when i did it it made a weird click noise and when i put my tank on it leaked until i shut it off. When i switched it on there was no leak. Just be aware of that.
Look, 2 inch drop forwards are useless, unless you want chrome flames on your gun, which is hideous on a Tippmann. if you want a drop forward that actually improves your performance, get this.
