Warped Sports, WDP, and Chris Lasoya bring you the Element Angels. You have your choice of 3 Elements: Fire(pictured), Earth, and Water. Each marker has custom milling, bullet maximizer, & DYE Boomstick barrel all anodized to match. The element comes with features designed by Chris Lasoya such as custom trigger, on/off switch, & lifetime labor.
The Warped Sportz Element Angel LCD is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I've owned nearly every Angel ever produced, and this is the cream of the crop. The milling and annodizing is top notch, the warranty is superb, and the performance is impeccable. If you're looking to buy a custom Angel and see one of these for sale, snatch it up quickly. These are one of the rarest markers around.
I use many markers, but for the purpose of this review I will only post what the setup for my Element Angel is:
-2002 Fire Element Angel LCD with Sunrise milling (owned by Lasoya)
-.688 JT Avalanche series barrel with 12" and 14" front
-Shocktech valve assembly
-Shocktech Supafly bolt
-Eclipse rubber ball detent
As it is an Angel and comes with a lot of great stuff from Warped Sportz already, go with what feels good to you. If you'd like, you could purchase a set of DYE Sticky grips, a snatch grip, or a drop forward; but, again, it's up to you. It comes with a good bolt stock, but I found that the Shocktech Supafly really had a perfect breach fit and allowed for great air flow.
If you like, you could purchase an ACE system from Warped Sportz for around $250, but to be honest, if you have a fast enough loader you'll never chop anyways.
Make absolutely sure that you use a fast loader (Evolution2 or HALO B, as they are the only ones fast enough to keep up with this marker) and a good HPA system.
Looks great, incredibly fast, lifetime warranty, reliable---it's an Angel, need I say more?
The price is extremely high, but well worth it if you can find one.
I've always loved Angels; they're some of the fastest, best looking, and most reliable markers on the planet. The only problem I had is that all of my Angels were rather plain, seeing as how most of them had stock bodies. This was the sole reason I even began looking at the Element Angels. Boy, am I glad I did.
Allow me to preface this by saying that I did buy the marker used (but not abused), so I did not pay the full $1700 or so that a new one would cost. But, it's no doubt well worth the price, even with the resale value of LCDs at rock bottom nowadays. I own an Element with the Sunrise milling, arguably the most intricate milling WS ever produced. So not only is this an incredible marker, but it's also one of the best looking on the planet.
The main reason that I enjoy using Angels so much, and this one is no exception, is that they have a soft, bouncy trigger that is very easy to walk once you get used to it. I also like the fact that the bolt is completely concealed from dirt, dust, rain, etc., which also aids in keeping the marker slightly quieter than many other electros. Low kick, reliability, durability---all of these things are what make an Angel...well, an Angel. True, there are other markers out there for less that are comparable in performance. But the Angel is like the Rolls Royce of paintball, and well worth the sometimes high price new.
However, my love of Angels is just that---my love. Others dislike Angels intensely for whatever reason. So, before buying this or any other Angel, be sure to MAKE sure that Angels are the marker for you.
Extremely fast, quiet, low kick, reliable, durable, a great warranty---does it get any better than this? I hope that my review helped someone out there choose this great marker. Thanks for reading.
oh my talon, my Sting Ray...not...lol, Impulses, Cockers *shakes head* 2000 2002 LCD Angels, and all the other markes in the world.

R11 Bolt, JT 16" Barrel, An Egg (evoultion II hopper), Gated Feed (just cuz it looks cool), a DYE Sight Rail (just cuz it looks cool). A Check It Dragon Grip, and a nasty trigger job. You know, you cant really do much to this marker to make it shoot nicer other than getting a nice barrel and getting a bolt. Alot of upgrades are purleycosmetic.
Super fast, Accurate with that 16" JT. Smooth Firing, consisnant in cronoing. Very low manitenance.
It doesnt have GPS or Cell Phone features!!!
Basically Everything about this marker is super niiice. It is crazy fast. Expically with that element trigger, that thing flys.
It is accurate with a JT 2 peice Alumium. A 16" one works best for me, but i play back, so depending on the position that you play, the size may vary, but a JT barrel is the way to go. The JT barrel, and the Element Angel like the Chronic paintballs. Just for your information.
The R11 bolt is sweet. Ya...lol...
The Check It dragon grip is cool. Just grab onto that thing, and go. Its also pretty comfortable.
The distance on the Element is just like any other Angel LCD. If you want it to shoot further, increase your FPS. A longer barrel helps too.
So in conclusion, this is the fastest marker ever. It is also by far the most accurate. It is sexy, and it will never let you down. It is the greatest paintball marker in the world. So by it! Iff you can find it, i heard it is hard to find. Also, if you do get it, get a solid color, like BLACK, RED, BLUE...none of this 'Fire' 'Earth' and 'Water' shizzel. So get it, all your friends will be jealous of your sexy Element Angel... But seriously, this marker rips. Expensive, but worth it. Well, hope this helped, ;-) later, yo!

They look awesome. They are limited. They have a rof second to none. Anodizing job is okay. Trigger job by Lasoya is great. Very short trigger pull. My elements is set up with the new A.i.r system with a warped drop forward. The guys at rocky mountain paintball are great. Just met Frank in Aruba, owner of rocky mountain, very nice guy. Great marker from good people. Jason reports in a review that he wishes to see that awful plastic tab back in the gun. Well I am happy it is not there and that there is an on and off switch. Less things to lose ! The battery life is simply AMAZING. Charged it once and have played over three months on that same charge and still have 3/4 battery power left. Met Chris in Aruba and he was very nice to us (maybe because we purchased 3 elements). Chris if you ever read this I am just kidding.
Nothing bad, everything on this marker is quality.
This marker is a top of the line marker. If you can afford it there is nothing to compare it with. I would recommend anybody this fantastic piece of equipment.
I don't wanna list 'em all
all other angels
some auto mags
electric skies splash eclipse angel led
*air assist mod
*adrenalin high rise feed tube
*warped sportz 2k2 dark angel maximizers(x2)
*eclipse drop, anoed to match
*armegedon 4500 system, with two tanks, 45, and 68
*pro quick connect, polished
*DYE boomsticks anoed two match in all lenth and sizes, gathered them up from different angels
*some other barrels
*all american stainless 12 inch, 14 inch .689, .687 respectively
* o and dye stickies
minimum of x-board rev- id recomend a turbo rev, or if you don't mind the looks or the size, a ricochet or a HALO
Cradle, drop, or hookup for N2 system or tank
Good N2 system, not just a tank, a gun this good deserves a good dual regulated system, such as: apocolypse, armegeddon, max-flo, or air.
Nice drop forward. Depending on your style, but whatevr it is you should get one, if you like a realy short gun get like a drop zone, or if you like to shoulder you gun, you may want a shorter one, like a shocktech.
another bullet maximzer, to put next to the one already there, it doesn't do anything, but it makes it look better, I think it looks funny, with the maximizer offset like that.
Thats about it.
What does that mean?
Its extreamly fast, reliable, accurate.
need I say more.
Well if you have this gun, you know what I mean and say no. But if your looking into this, which probably cost at least twice as much as your whole setup now, not including a tank or hopper or any of that, you say yes.
So, what does this gun have that you can't get on a stock angel?
sure you could get a stock angel anodized to mimick the element, but anodizing is expensive, especially quality work like this. And you'd have to send your precious baby away to some place to get it done, and you don't wanna trust some UPS guy with your gun do you.
Yes you can get your gun milled, but maybe not to look like this plus thats also expensive, and you have to ship your gun off again.
Matched anoed DYE boomstick:
You would have to buy a boomy and then ship that away to the anodizing shop.
you can buy this, but not that color ano, and you know how to get it that way.
You can accually buy this from warped, for $200.
So to get a stock gun to be somewhat like this:
element trigger: 50
...disclaimer: Anodizing costs are approximzte, I have never sent a gun away, nor had one anodized, this is based on what I have found online.
a but more than the element, plus all the stress of sending you gun around the country. Its probably a better idea to just buy this gun.
unfortunatly, the nothing, or no bad, or anything refering to the like, is grossly over used here at pbreview.com- 80%%%% of the time I see it, I can think of atleast two bads. I'm sure I am guilty of this too, but not on this review.
The element is just another angel, which is better or worse than others.
If you are looking into this, the new milling isn't as good.
Also, other guns to look into and what the element has over them or lack thereof.
Stock LCD- same as above- there is too much over this one to list, it is above, some where in the review.
First is first. There have been rumors of me lying about all of these reviews. That is not true. I am sad to say I sold my Dark Angel LCD and bought the element angel lcd. The first thing that I like is the on/off switch. The dumb key in the back of my dark lcd got annoying. All angel owners that owned a version with the key are thankful. Another thing I like is the dip switches. In my dark angel lcd, they were these little nubby-knob things that I had to pry up with a tweezer to get up. These are actual switches! I just move em up about a half centimeter. The custom trigger is awesome, and the barrel is a dye boomstick! I have the water edition, and I took off the bullet maximizer. It looks dumb. This is smoother than my previous angel and I'm very happy with the purchase. If you're looking for a SWEET angel, look no further.
Impossible to find! I walked into my retailer and handed him my angel. I said "I want an element angel." He just kind of handed it to me and I loved it. I gave him $100 and my gun, and just sorta walked away. Anyways, he only had 4 left. I looked on warped sportz, they're out of stock! Not only that, but mine cost me like a total of $1675. That's pretty damn expensive!
Sweet marker. The only thing I didn't like was the maximizer and the fact that I couldn't upgrade it anymore =). You don't need anything else on it! It comes tricked out, with a boomstick! Worth every penny to me. Another thing is that with my dark angel lcd, I had it customized to my liking. MY drop-forward, MY barrel, MY everything! Just last week I went to a scenario game with this, and I saw another one. The only difference was the maximizer. The LCD screen is almost identical, and well....I guess it's just separation anxiety from my beloved dark LCD! Anyways, great gun. Nothing more you need. That's both good and bad to me though. I give it a 9 because I can't customize it!!!
