Review: I recently got a Grey to black fade Freeflow Lotus body and aww man, it is the nicest body ive ever used. The body comes with the main body, VASA, Pblocked Backblock, Lightened front block, Removable Clamping feedneck, and i got mine with a Nylatron Bolt and pullpin. These things will make your gun stand out at any field or tourny, and definatly attracts people to it. It is extremely light.
Conclusion: I give this a A ++++, 12 out of 10, 6 thumbs up, you name it. Might put a little dent in your wallet, but its worth it

Review: I got this body for 200 on sale. The ano is very nice, deep, lusty, and pretty damn hard. The milling also adds to the bodies graceful lines. As with all freeflow products it comes with a life time warranty, which i have had to use.

The first problem i had with it was that there was a big sliver of aluminum protruding from the jam nut threads which made it impossible to get the vsalve in. The other major problem Ive had with it is thst the frontblock can go off center and dig the pump arm into the side of the body making it impossibvle for the gun to cycle.

Both problems were fixed and besides that ive put the gun through some heavy abuse and it still works (and looks) fine.
Conclusion: A great looking body at a decent price, has some problems but they are fixable, i hate to give it an 8 but i cant ignore the defects

Review: I switched from a Drallion f'ocker to the FreeFlow Lotus. Though I did like the Drallion, I like the FreeFlow better. It's light and very quiet. The bolt action is smooth and the kick is minimal. (Which when I get the mQvalve, there should be none at all) I would have liked it better if it came with a 15* Asa instead. The milling is superb on this body. Everything fit perfectly when exchanging parts from one cocker to the other. I would suggest against Kapp Detents, they screw into the marker too far. (Or you could just put on a plastic/rubber spacer.)
Conclusion: Good product, good resale value!

Review: So This Has Been At My Paintball Shop For About Three Years.The Day I First Set My Foot Into A Paintball Shop I Saw This And New I Had To Have It.The Problem Was It Was Freken $275 At The Time Well Just About A Year And A Half Ago They Wanted It To Go. So I Only Payed $96 For It Which Was A Steal. I Felt Like I Raped Them It Was Such A Low Price. Neways Back To The Review. Its The Lightest Body I've Ever Used Even Wih My Assortment Of Parts It Stil Stays Pretty Lite.On The Feild It Turns Heads,Rips And Almost EveryOne Wahts To No How They Can Get Theirs Unfortunetly I Must Tell Them Free Flow Is No Longer In Buisness And You Will Be Lucky To Find One Even On Ebay.
Conclusion: It Is A Great Product Made By A Great Company Who Unfortunatly Is No Longer In Business.

Review: I purchased a red freeflow lotus body back in December 2005 brand new for $110 shipped. This must have been my 3rd autococker or so.

First off, when I received the body, it is simply amazing. The color has a good finish and is even throughout. There are no chips or dents on the body itself and everything is pretty much flush with each other. When i went to put in my shocktech valve, it was quite a problem for me. I spent about 10mins trying to put the valve in which eventually I did. Just have to nudge it back and forth.

Other parts I installed on it was the FF nylatron 2 bolt w/ pin, stock hammer kit, FF ram + FF QEV, FF beaver tail, FF cocking rod, E2, WGP tickler, CP reg, and a CP rail w/on/off.

Well, to make a long story short, the back block threads were stripped after awhile. My back block flew out of my marker when i was shooting at one time. It wasn't really a problem because I locktite the backblock and everything works, but it causes me to become weary. What I ended up doing was fixing the problem and selling the marker.

My friend, however, had some color inconsistency with his lotus body. The original ones when FF was still in business were probably better. The ones that we got for 110 were weak in some way or another.
Conclusion: If you want a very nice custom autococker for a fair price, go with the FF lotus body. It looks very nice. However, its hard to find spare parts for it. I think my problem was really the poor quality of the body. I have also read post by other people who experienced the same problem. Just the looks, I would give it a 9. But the poor quality of the back block, I would give it a 2, since not all the threads were messed up. Therefore, it gets an average of 6/10
