This innovative piece from Hybrid utilizes simplicity in a most compact design. By using a bearing within the dropforward, a simple hex screw adjust the bearing downward to your existing rail make it flushed right under the trigger. Adjustment screw is on the side rather from the top for easier access. Come in black only. Another unique addition to HYBRID TECHNOLOGIES.
The Hybrid Technologies Blunt Micro Drop Forward is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
If you REALLY wanna see my setups... which I doubt, go to:
- Bearing design works well
- Did I mention small?
- Little pricy
This rail, combined with the Hybrid Grind ASA, makes one of the smallest Unimount combos that I have ever seen. There's not much else to say... it works well, is small, secure, and mounts very easily. Some other people seem to have had problems with the early ones jamming up, but I believe Hybrid has fixed this. If you want to be safe, putting a drop of oil on each bearing should entirely prevent this from happening.
Once again, Hybrid makes yet another product that is my favorite.

Ends should be chopped slightly.
A very excellent rail, allows easy adjustment, without scratching up the on/off, because of the bearing design. My only gripe is that it can be set back, but not forward, if you move the on/off forward, then the actually regulator of the tank touches, so the farthest is it can be setup is flush.
Excellent rail, unless you're planning on moving your tank forward, get this.
CP Pro rail-About thesame. The CP is much more expensive though.
Dye Mini-Really cool. Its still a drop tho.

-Very short. Keeps it tight
-Side Bearing. Easy to adjust
-Sometimes bearings get stuck
-You have to grip screws ALOT to get no sideplay.
I got this for my dad's gun when he got it and it had an atrocious huge Shocktech drop. Needless to say I stole it and it is now mine. I like it alot more than the short Dyes and Shock's, looks really cool. It has the side bearing adjust, which is great. Some of the peeps below me have had problems with it, but I never have. Also, the stock bottom screws have to be tightened REALLY tight for it to stay straight. If you use aftermarket screws this shouldnt be a problem. Ive heard it doesnt really work for ASA's, but all mine fit fine and so does my adjustable CenterFlag.
GET THIS. It is great, at par with the CP Pro, and it is cheaper. Not much more can be said. It onyl gets a nine because nothing is perfect.

What else can I say?
I cant say I see any so far, maybe ball bearings.
I finally got a real rail and asa for my promaster, and they arrived about 5 days ago, all Hybrid. In the pics on AVI's website, you cant see the set screws and ball bearings, so you have no idea what the hell theyre talking about with ball bearings. In person, the rail looks damn nice, and is cut and polished beautifully (mine is nickel). Hybrid included a par of asa screws as well, makes installation that much simpler. The head of the screws and the holes on the rail are tapered, so your sure to get a flat fit for installing a rail of choice. The ball bearing system has worked great for me so far, but 5 days isnt much of a test. I am hoping the bearings will stay in, but remember old-style cocker bolt pins? The bearings always fell out of those, so who knows. Ill update this after i get some play time.
Buy it, price isnt bad at 22 bucks, especially with the high quality and ball bearing system.

This is a nice drop, its small so your not arm's in a comfotable position, its light, and really cool looking. the only problem is that its kinda pricy, like 45 to 50 bucks. This is a very strong drop too, its not gonna snap in half on you.
ASA doesn't loosen up and slide like on some rails
Bearing get stuck
Ano is a litte weak
Won't accept Dye Airports
Overall I'm happy with the Blunt Rail, but I'll probably just buy another CP when I need another rail. I had a few problems with this one. First thing, I tried to put a Dye Airport on it and it got about and inch on and stopped. I couldn't get it to move either way. I had to use a rubber mallet to beat it back off. After that, I put a CP on/off on it and that worked fine. Later I removed the CP from it and put another ASA on, but when I took it off, I noticed that the bearing were stuck out. I had to use a screwdriver and a hammer to tap the bearing back in. Now I have it back on with the Grind ASA and everything's fine.
If you feel like messing with something different, it's not too bad of a product, but the CP rail just seems to work a little better.
Great Rail,set screws are located on the side and work with ball bearings
for a quick strong adjustment. Puts the tank in perfect position allowing
elbows to be tucked in tight. In my experience all rails generally serve the
purpose and would recommend any rail over a drop forward. Also the
Hybrid Grind push button on /off looks and works great on this rail.
I hope that this rail maintains its quality in the future.
But after 5 events i feel strongly enough about it that
i would highly recommend it
Set screws become jammed. Ball bearings unable to move.
I picked up this rail at an NPPL because it looked like a good deal. It was cheaper than the CP pro rail so I bought it. Initially I thought the ball bearing and screw system worked pretty well. After a while, however, one of the set screws became jammed. There is no way i can get it off, and have bent many allen keys trying. Both ball bearings also became jammed. Even when I tried to loosen the one screw that would back out, the bearings wouldn't move. I've had to use considerable force to remove the ASA ever since. My ASA is also very loose (wobbles) because the bearings dont move far enough to secure it properly
A good rail if it doesen't get stuck on you. Maybe mine had some sort of defect. I haven't heard any other complaints about the rail from others.

None at all
This is a very nice peice for the price, i got mine for 20$ and it fits well on my mag, get it guys, this one is a keeper I would recommend it for scenario and tournament ball I really dont know why it says i have too few words, I've given my review
at the time i have a Hybrid Quest w/ a e-blade, and i get the best support w/ a hybrid blund slider, and a dye cover...
gives good gun support, better than drop forwards!!
i would say, that this product works with every gun, and if you get a Timmy get this!! i would reccomend for, tournament players, and mabye some beginners.... but i would say, when your out on that field trying to do your best!! you need some support, not only from your team players or fans, but a piece on you gun, to in hance your game!!!!
this product is made for all players front, mid, Back!!
