Products Used:
stock blocks, P blocks, whatever - they are all metal and WAY heavier
Marker Setup: 2K3 Outkast, Orry 3way, nexus ram, tickler, Kritical Mass Bolt (only prototype in existence!! - has no pin detent), Feather block, aluminum pump arm, 3d's delrin pull pin, man... forget it, it's a tricked out mech.
Strengths: Very Light, Increases Cycle Speed noticeably. Durable
Weaknesses: What weaknesses?
Review: I have had the opportunity to talk to the man behind 3d's a number of times. I also tested one of the first feather blocks before they were for sale. I personally know that his product is exceptional. I put it through testing, not use. That means I did stuff like screw it too far in to my pump arm and beat the heck out of it against the body a couple 1,000 times.

This is a great upgrade if you are looking to lighten your cocking mass and increase your cycle speed. Get a delrin bolt first though... Which I also reccomend using one of 3d's bolts.

Conclusion: Buy it after the delrin bolt. Get your cycle speed up. This is even more important on E-cockers.

Products Used:
wdp back block, cole twist lock bolt and back block.
Marker Setup: 2002 autococker VF, Air america messiah reg, WGP hinge trigger frame : dye stiky grips, cole twist lock bolt with back block, ANS hammer kit, 3:16 rat valve, Shocktech bomb 3-way, Shocktech FGP lp regulator, taso air chamber, KAPP Beaver tail, KAPP STO Ram, System X drop forward, 12V revy with X-board, 68/3000 HPA pure energy.
Strengths: Light very light.
Weaknesses: Didnt fit when screwed on the link arm. Tool marks.
Review: First when I got this I saw how light it was and how there are tool marks all over it!!! This is supposed to be sanded to be smooth. Its sad how many tool marks were on it like they just barly finished it and sent it out. Also the hole was barly big enough to screw in the link arm. And when it was screwed in it did not fit with the back of my gun. The gap would be a finger nail on one side of my gun and two or three on the other side. Which would mean it would cuase lots of wear on my bolt since it would make it rub wierd on my gun.

edit to this review:
There customer support is very very good and very helpful. They appoligized for the mistakes and offered a refund or a replacment. And for that im gonna up my review to a 7 for that fact that there support is very good, but the product is lacking some.
Conclusion: Over it is light but it doent fit right this could be just a bad one but since I think this is a small company they should not have a problem like this if there try to build a costumer base. They need quality checks or something. But from the one they gave me I just want my money back. I might change my opinion depending on how everthing goes.

Marker Setup: 03 Wgp E-Class Orracle with lots of upgrades
Strengths: -Light
-Quick Cycling
Weaknesses: - Appearance
Review: This is another good add on for those looking for a max ROF. It fits well and the only aspect of this product that I can fault is its appearance. It comes with a lot of visible tool marks. Not a big deal for most but I'm a mess. I ended up sanding the back with 1000 grit wet/dry sand paper then re-dyed it black.
Conclusion: A good product that just needs a little work. Function ...10 Appearance... 7. Should be an 8.5 so lets round up
