Products Used:
The only gun that could compare would be my old cocker which was a 99 side feed cocker I upgraded myself but it goes so far beyond it isn't even funny. I'll never do anything to a gun myself again after seeing how much better others can do it.
Marker Setup: MAC Dev Sonic E-Racer (the Steel Grey One)
Angel Air
Clear Revolution
Shocktech drop-forward
Deluxe Freak Kit (I hate that the black aluminum front doesen't match my gun but its such a nice barrel)

Warped Sportz Dark Angel LCD 2001 v2.0 (Back-up)
Dye Boomstick 14"
Recommended
Upgrades:
Preatty much what Sk8rstudd13 said but I would stick with the Freak set.
Strengths: What can i say, it's just incredible. I got an Angel because I liked it better than my old cocker but this has changed me. It was between the E-Racer and a IR3 Class Angel and i decided on this. Mainly because I was sick of hearing people say "you should get a cocker because Angels are for posers," and me responding "screw off Dave, nobody likes you." Needless to say I gave in.

Now as for specifics, the trigger is great and i was firing faster than with my Angel. Mind you I can't fire very fast cause my fingures are stubby so I won't get into bps. In addition, it's scarily consistent and yadda, yadda, yadda, it's great.
Weaknesses: It doesn't look as spiffy as other avalible cockers, but I like how it looks, that is, of course, purely personal preference.

I've never been a fan of angled regs but I got used to it quick.

I droped the JP barrel that came with it off of a batcony and it landed on my driveway. Let's just say it doesn't shoot so good anymore. Oh well, I have my freak set.
Conclusion: Don't buy it, the more people get these guns the less chance I have of winning.

Upgrades:
QEV's on the STO ram
Strengths: Very very fast
break beam eyes,
weight
Total control of all possible adjustments.
Weaknesses: cocking rod works loose at high ROF.
large Ans eye covers
Review: In 2002 Macdev had discontinued the Racer.
I wanted one regardless.
In 2004 Macdev removed the 03 Sonic from their website.

The marker is amazing, its milling is the same as the 2002 , and it has every Sonic upgrade that Macdev has/had made until 2004.

Simply it is a lovely marker.

In theory the software is telling me 43bps, whilst 28bps seems impossibly fast for a cocker.
Issues... the cocker just "rattles and rolls" the titanium cocking rod seems to always come undone - at the back block and at the ram thread.

The metal chromed ANS eye covers protrude with their soft plastic liners to block out light, and they are firmly attached... ie., screwed and glued down.

This makes it impossible to field strip the marker if you somehow get a breakage. I have an extra long macro hose to blow the eyes out if this happens.

Giving it to a beginner they can immediately shoot this marker without learning all the fancy finger tricks.

If you can get a Sonic Racer... you wont want anything else.







Conclusion: I recommend this to anyone that wants an electro cocker.
If you can get one!!!!
