It kicks a little bit and is a bit pricey
Right were to start
when you first open the box its clear how much effort has gone into this marker. Everything you could need for the marker is included. 3 barrel bores barrel sock, instructional DVD charger with all the possible plug you could ever need, usb wire an amazing allen key set, stickers, mobile charger unit
the marker really come into its own once u have it in hand. the lightest marker i have ever held even light than the EGO 09. i took it straight of the box aired it up and away it -went. gettign amazing consistancy over crono from the first shot only gettin +/- 8
shoots amazing lines even though it kicks a little more than other markers of this price range. shoots accurate and consistant. the best i have ever shot. so tight small profile and looks great
If you are luck enough to get one of these cheaper than the retail your will not be dissapointed. over all the best marker i have ever used even at retail its the best marker you can use.
Had a blue one but it was a Gen1 leaker out of the box
-Easy to use
Gen1 had air leaks badly
When I first took the gun out of the box I was surprised as to how light the gun was, its lighter than any gun I've ever held including ego9
So I took it to the field a couple days after I got it to use it and was only getting 3.5 pods off a 68/3k fill and I knew this was way off what I should be getting and sure enough I got a leaker could hear it inside the body near where the poppit valve is and near the LPR. Finished using it that day, and got in contact with Vanguard right away, they agreed to replace my gun with a brand new Gen2 gun.
The gun is extraordinarily smooth and quiet for a poppit.
The included barrel kit is a Lucky Unitech you get a 14" 693 and 689 as well as a 16" 693
Get about 11 pods out of a 68/45
the colour OLED Screen is amazing, and navigating the menu is very straight forward I didn't even have to look in the manual to figure out how to operate the gun and go through all the modes, very self explanatory.
The stock trigger is ver nice and comfortable there is also lots of room in the trigger guard for the people with bigger hands.
Grips I find are a bit narrow but you get used to it and is actually quite comfortable to hold.
The reg is very consistent shooting +/-8 right out of the box got better over time.
This is a very good marker, assuming you get a Generation 2 gun. if you can find one for $1000 or less jump on it but I wouldn't pay the full list price for them of around $1200-$1300
All the features you need
Some Gen 1 had issues butcustomer support is great. Grips wear out after afew seasons
I've used the creed over 3 tournament seasons. The guns has proved to be very reliable and provides tournament performance. I've used in several national events. Does everything you need to do in tournaments and has easily adjustable features/interface. With the LCD board you can change from PSP 12.5bps to NPPL semi 15.0 in a matter of seconds, as well as adjust your dwell, firing mode, eye settings, debounce, etc. The gun is supported all over the US, Canada, UK and other places, and the customer support is great.
Great shooting gun. Perfect for the best of the best as well as your average recreational player.
