Here it is, FINALLY. A practically flawless mechanical gun. The sister gun of the popular ICON-E, the Z series gun has all the goodies and great features, minus the electronics. Add to all of this a 2 year factory warranty and you will see why this is one of the best deals in paintball.
The 32 Degrees Icon Z is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
This was my friends backup gun after my A-5 and my backup Orion wasn't working. This gun is very good! It has a sensible accuracy and range, but don't expect much from a $90 gun. The material is very durable and will take a good beating. A screw holding the frame in place was loose, so make sure all the screws are on right, but even when it was loose it still fired nicely. The gun looks very nice also. This gun will be there when you need it. I took out 2 Angels and another high end gun with this baby in 1 game.
Buy it if you're a noob or need a backup gun. It is reliable and I wish I bought it instead of my Orion.

smart parts Ion ,eggy 2 with z board, 68 45 dye tank
Maybe a new barell but the stock barell is not bad.
Low price , reliable.
Requires a plastic feed neck
This was my starting gun as a beginner and I was very pleased with it.I never had one problem with it. It is not to loud so dont bother getting a whisper barell . th stock barell actually does a good job if you ask me. This gun has decent accuracy and range. When you get used to the trigger you can actually get a good rate of fire.
This gun is good for beginners who want to get into the sport because it is cheap and really does not need any upgrades.
silver Icon Z
32 degrees spyder spring kit
14" tearrop black
barrel spring kit or shims kit either is fine
Fast moslty metal ,can take spyder upgrades so there is so many!
Bad stock on springs and such
Well I first got this gun fter i had seen many good reviews on pbreview and the price was right so i bought it.Well for the first couple of months it had very little use and it was in the middle of winter so when spring came aroung i was delighted. when you first chrono it its about say 190 or lower not any higher and with a pretty bad barrel.so i gt the nessacery upgrades and now it great i love it its fast light and fun to ya use buy it its very good!
I would reccomend that new paintballers buy this gun!
Works fantastic as is, has more power than Model A.
Maybe a longer Barrel as with any gun.
Hopper screws come loose after a few dozen games.
Personally i dont like to play on fields because of velocity limits. I Live ijn Puerto Rico, so we play in rivers. Overall its a great gun. I was very impressed when Im standing in front of a friend with a Model A and he is falling short, but Im nailing him. Awesome, definitely worth the $90.
Couldnt be happier with this gun, was great stock, but of course Its better with upgrades.
spyder compact deluxe which is like the same gun they are both exellent paintball guns
right now i have a spyder compct deluxe with an expasion chamber and a queit riot barrel and a 20oz pure energy co2 tank
this gun needs a new barrel somthing around 14'' and a new bolt because stock scratches up the inside of the the gun a little
This gun has a great design and good weight and very powerfull great stock gun.
There are no weakness
this gun is very good gun i only tested it and i loved it from the start. It fired very fast it has an extremly light tigger pull for a semi gun. The gun is very durable and it has a consistant fireing rate. And if you upgrade it forget it this gun would be awesome. All you have to do is get an electric trigger frame and a electric hopper, a new bolt and a new after market barrel and maybe compressed are. Also since I live in hawaii the salt it the air tears up metel but this gun does just fine here. I would recommened this gun and all the other icon guns to anyone nob or experined.
I would give this gun a 20 out of 10 it is just an excellent marker go out and buy it and since I tested it this weekend iam going to buy the icon e which is also awesome.
icon z 32* whisper barrel 16oz chrome moly Co2 tank, ricochet G2K hopper ,32* universal drop forward and 6 stage expansion chamber , automag microline kit ,32* 1200 psi gadge
Stock barrel is ok but it needs a better one
a better hopper ,it needs a sping kit my sping gave out after 2 months, i was shooting 209 instead of 300 fps
fast ,tough, looks good , quiet ,up gradeable
mine is very heavy maybe its just mine
the trigger wobbles ,the sping is bad
for a novice or intermediate player it is a very reliable and accurate marker for its price.and it is more than fast enough to compete with any auto spyder. its not picky on paint, you use any spyder up grade it uses the same parts. the bolt has a first generation venture head i took mine out and the spin that was put on the ball was gone. and other than some spin that the paintball does not need its great right out of the box.
as i said before a spectacular buy ,reliable and stylish and why just cause it is
10 out of 10

New Drop forward, Barrel(Goes without saying), hopper.
Light, Fast shooting, Inexpensive, It looks totally Dope!
It is not as durable as some(See below), Vertical feed,
I don't have enough good things to say about this gun! It is light, fast and kool looking! The only problems is that it will shoot very quickly and therfore a electric hopper is pretty much required. It is not a particularly durable gun(I dropped mine on some asphalt and broke the vertical feed screws, it was easily fixed), I mean this gun is no tippman, but it is just what they say it is, no frills, cheap, and accurate. I can't think of a gun I would rather have for the money. I Highly recomend this gun to anyone who wants a low budget marker, with high end looks and performance!
Just Shut up and buy the damned thing, You will pat yourself on the back for not getting a spyder or a game face, belive me! This gun is compleatly worth the 90 bucks!
stock icon z
20 oz co2
PMI remote coil
barrel - definitely
hopper - if you have a fast rof
maybe a new drop forward but i use a remote
easy to maintain
decent accuracy (better with new barrel though)
poor drop forward
trigger kinda sux
This is a very good entry level marker. It is very easy to maintain because of its simplicity and it is a mechanical gun. Looks very nice and it shoots quite well in stock form. the drop forward, however, can easily come loose if your tanks is too heavy, so i used a remote coil. Also, the trigger pull is too long for my liking, and it is kinda bad too.
This is a very good entry level marker. It is inexpensive, so the low budget paintball player (me) can actually throw some paint around. However, there are some minor flaws in the gun, but what can you expect from a gun that costs that cheap? I give it a nine. Overall, this is a very nice gun to have and use.
New barrel(I thought stock was good but upgrades are always good to have
Pretty accurate with stock barrel. Extremely Quiet. Cant beat price
New barrel. If you buy this in a package, bigger Co2 tank
This gun is only 90 dollars and you cant beat the price. My friend has a Spyder Victor and when we played i wasted him. I feel sorry for him that he spendt $130 dollars and that i only spendt 90. This gun only chopped a couple balls, but that is only because i was using the cheepest paint i could find.
There are a lot of reasons you should buy this gun. Price,functoin,and great looks to top off a great gun
Probly a New barrel cause there always good to get(even though stock is really good)
Maybe a new trigger
Looks Great Id like to get a electronic Hopper
The trigger gets loose
screw and bolts get loose
other than that its really good
Its a Great looking gun very accurate stock. very upgradable its light some downfalls could b the trigger sure its a double finger but its very sloppy i really like it even tho i am a beginner so if u are beginning its a good gun cheap for people like me who cant afford bob longs or angels sure its not automatic but if u want automatic buy a icon E
