Off The Break once again sets the standard with the Vert Frame available now for the Impulse, Matrix, Bushmaster, and Shoebox Shockers. The combination of vert frame ergonomics, and ultralight reverse polarity trigger are deadly. Most everyone who uses the vert frame notices more confidence in there snap shooting, faster strings while running and overall a tighter profile. If your not convinced ask to shoot your friends or contact a local dealer.
The Off The Break OTB Vert Frame is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
04 Impulse w/ WAS Equalizer board
All NDZ internals
Not a 45* frame so it is different at first
I can shoot this frame faster than any 45* I've used. The guy above me is a joke. It's actually more comfortable once I got used to it. The trigger is a dream, I can outshoot my friends 2k1 CC angel easily and even rival and beat his a-4. The guy above just tested it, no wonder he was unhappy. If you actually use it you will like it. Read the comments below his post and judge for yourself. Sadly his "1" will screw up the rating for this product.
I love it, its not cheap however so don't buy it if you need the $120 for paint and air.
None... beside ref. from use of the Angel Speed 05
Impy 2003 (ex-www.copenhagenducks.com)
RAT body (black-dust)
WAS Equalizer Board
Max-Flo 03 4500 psi
Hard to fit the grips around the frame... needs bit of a stretching
Well, if you're tired of that big-funny-angled Smart Parts gripframe - you need the OTB Vert Frame a.s.a.p. :-))
The comfort is second to none, and it handles just perfectly when you need it!
Due to the fact that it's 90*, you can easily position the marker where you need it - to get that lucky shot!
Can't say anything else than:
1. It looks good!
2. It feels good!
3. You can RIP that Impy SUPERFAST (of course, you also need a WAS board)!
4. With a RAT body and the OTB Vert Frame, you got a great Impy (just look at www.offthebreak.com)
Smart Parts Strange Vision
Custom Products Drop Forward
Freak Barell System
Appearance: DM7 looks for cheap
Mkaes snap shots like a pro
None to speak of
I have this on my Strange Vision. It makes the marker look like a more expensive marker and isn't that what we're really after? I have been playing paintball since college and I am now 37. I have had them all: Angels, Cockers, Spyders, you name it, I've owned it. Most paintballer have way more marker than they are capable of using properly and it kills me to see some kid's mom shell out 1500 bucks for a marker so he can hide behind a bunker crapping his pants cuz he's scared to get hit. You can take an impulse that is a few years old, slap one of these babies on it and voila! You have the looks and enough cabbage left over to buy some balls and pay the field fee. I have a marker that I bought used on ebay for 350, bought a used OTB frame and since the Strange Vision came with a Freak barrel, I have a decent tourney marker for under $600 WITH hopper AND carbon fiber tank and I have the money to shoot marblizers instead of crappy oval field paint and I own the DM7's shooting crappy paint. I hold my own in tourneys and I get in my 2007 Avalanche and go home.
Instead of dropping a few dimes to get a new marker just for looks, drop 120 and get the OTB 90 and save your chi chi for some chicks. What's cool about a paintballer with no cash for the honeys? She don't care if you have a DM7 if you can't take her out and get a steak and lobster tail.
SP Impulse w/eyes, q-lock clamping feed neck, CP body, CP micro-razor drop, OTB Vert Frame, Egg II, still need on/off asa and a nitro tank (selling my Max-flo)
Tightens it up
shorter trigger pull
Has substance to the pull
more difficult to take apart and clean when junk gets in it
Well I bought my impulse from a guy who already had this and the CP body installed as well as a few other upgrades I probably still don't know about (doesn't ramp. that I know) Anyway I was already used to a stock A-5 which wasn't exactly working well for speedball and the trigger caught me off guard the first time I shot it. It was probably 1/4 the distance and tension of the A-5... well I'm not sure exactly but it was short and light enough that i accidentally shot a round into the round before I had it up.
The only other trigger that I have to compare with is that of the VL High Voltage I picked up for my girlfriend to use in rec play. You can read my review of that if you want to. Needless to say this trigger is by far easier to walk than the stiff VL frame (didn't expect much out of that one anyway) but still has the tension that the original frame and blade trigger had (which the guy sold with the imp).
Playing with this frame for the first time in speedball was a dream compared to that of an A-5 (think constant bunkering). As a backman I was able to hold down one of the better intermediate teams while me and my slapped together group of veterans of 3-5 years (me being probably the only noobish person) walked off only losing two out of four ppl (was probably just dumb luick on my part)
Most recent time I played with it in a speedball setting I was able to borrow an ASA and a nitro tank adn played with my CP micro razzor drop which shortened thelength up even more than the maxflo did although with this frame I might take my maxflo back and put my drop on my cocker I am working on which could use a little shortening.
I think it's a good addition to the impulse. One guy told me that it might make the marker too short and close to your body for easy trigger walking. I think it's more preference for some ppl but I would urge it as an upgrade for tight bunkers. 8 because it's way better than average but not almost perfect
black to gray fade b2k4 w/ PDS, otb frame, 15* asa block, vapor valve, chaos
It's very comfertable and the trigger settings are good and easy
Filed a screw a little cause it hit bottomb4 it was in all the way
I love it its way better than the stock frame. Its great for comfert and it is prob a little faster cause of the trigger screw settings. Very good that the microswitch is screwd in too cause it was a pain sometimes to do align up the pins. It should have some softer grips tho, that would help. but it is the best
tippmann a-5 w/ a J/J , 32 degrees expansion, dbl. triggrer, drop forward
SP ion coming soon w/in the month
light trig pull
Hard to hold. the curved back makes it akward.
personally,i dont like 90 frames
I only tested this frame on my freinds rat impulse. when i first saw it i was like whoa that looks sweet. so he lets me hold it. when he handed it to me it felt weird. id didnt like the feel of it too much. then i aired it up and started dry firing. it shoots very fast and good. the trigger pull is very short and light i liked that about it but it is soo oddly shaped that it is uncomfortable to hold. ill give ita 7 cuz its very light and fast
Its sweet to look at but i wouldnty buy 1 and if i bought a gun and it came w/ this frame i would replace it with a 45 frame
