Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Built for speed, comfort, looks, and durability, the KAPP stubby drop features KAPP's original Drop Zone design in a smaller and even more functional package. It fits most clamp style tanks and can fit any screw on tank with the use of KAPP's Drop Zone tank adapters. Created for the front players who strive to tuck in as far as possible, the KAPP stubby drop also features an air cap holder to prevent losing your aircap everytime you play. Stubby Drops come in Black Matte and Chrome.
Product Availability 
The KAPP Stubby Drop Zone II is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Strengths: High quality and very sturdy. The new ones have the KAPP 'K' cut out on them and look AWESOME. I have the chrome and it doesn't seem to scratch easily, and when polished, it just looks beautiful.
Weaknesses: The grip frame screws that came with it were a little short. They went in fine, and held it well, but over just a few weeks became stripped and the tank started popping off. I just went to the local hardware store and got some new ones that were the same thickness, just one inch longer. Turns out these were the perfect length, they went in right up to where the screw hole stopped inside of the frame, and have held well ever since no matter how much I jostle it around. Also they have this knob on the end that looks decrative, but gets in the way of my 68cc. It was not really a problem, I just would have preffered for my tank to be an extra 1/4 inch in further. A dremel tool took that off easily enough, and now I have the perfect stubby mount.
Conclusion: It is high quality, and looks great (it is a KAPP after all). If you get one, get some longer screws first thing so that it never falls off or gets loose in a game. The knob on the end really isn't that big of a deal, and it does look better than a straight cut, but for me the maximum comfort was another 1/4" closer. (I'm kind of a small guy)

Anyway, it's still a great product, and I won't count off for the knob because that is a personal preference thing, but the screws should have been long enough, and the fact that they were not is not up to KAPP standards. It was only like 16 cents for longer ones, but I still had to go out of my way, and if it was knocked off in a game instead of in my backyard it would have been a problem.
