This electronic-triggered, ALL pneumatic marker gives you a rate-of-fire equal to the very best. It has no hammer, no sear, no main spring. Interchangable forebreech can be fitted to accept your favorite barrels from Angels, Shockers, Mags, etc. (the standard forebreach is threaded for Cocker barrels). Includes Regulator, Custom Barrel, Interchangeable ForeGrip, and Electronic Trigger assembly.
The Diablo Matrix is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I've used spyders piranhas and ONE walmart gun which i only used once..but none of those even came close to the matrix and how it performs

You could shoot this gun stock and not have any problems except you would need a fast hopper..thats the only upgrade thet i can really say
The trigger pull is very light and it is very quiet and accurate.
It's a pretty heavy and bulky gun.
I really like this gun. It's speed is only limited by how fast your finger and hopper are. I like this gun because it looks really good, it's quiet, and it's very accurate. Some downsides are that it's pretty heavy. You will probably go through more paint and it's a bigger target so you might get more gun shots than you usually do. But that's all things that are easy to get used to.
I would recommend this gun to anyone whos looking to upgrade and get more serious about their game.
Impulse- slower, uglier, louder, more kick
Cocker- better feeling, but slower
Timmy- about the same, but timmy's have a little more kick
2k2 led matrix #1305
REd Bolt Kit
Gun 20 chip
2 piece CP barrel
Bob long torpedo regulator

-Bolt kit (up your shots per tank)
-LPR (make your gun pinch)
-Nice forcefed hopper. I suggest an egg.
Wicked fast, extremely quiet, good effeciency (upgraded), beautiful looking, consistent, no kick
Not effecient stock.
I'll start off by saying that this is the best electro design out there today. Nothing can hang with the spool valve design now that the higher end matrixes have finally come out (i.e. DM4, dye trix). This marker is extremely easy to shoot fast, with one of the fastest stock triggers I've ever felt. The board, although capped at round 16, isn't too bad.
One of my favorite aspects of this gun is the fact that it has absolutely no kick. I can't feel the gun moving, even when I'm raking the trigger to the high teens. This strength alone is reason enough for me to justify getting one of these guns.
New bolt kits have been released for this gun, improving the shots per tank. The best one out there is the evolve, making the matrix one of the most effecient guns on the market. My red bolt kit did jump up my shots per tank, but not as much as the better bolt kits.
This gun has two ways of preventing from chopping- it is LPR compatible and can take eyes. Right now, with my egg and LPR set up perfect, I see no need for the eyes just yet, but anything can change.
Out of the box, this gun rocks. The stock reg is very nice, and the gun shoots very straight and in the same spot with a nice barrel. Expect to shoot some ropes, people.
I believe that the matrix is the best one out there today. Pick one up if you can, they really are worth the cash you drop into them. Very strongly reccomended for the tourney player.

quiet, accurate, easy to maintain
the matrix is a very good marker. it can accomidate to all players of all levels. the high rise is easy to take of and therefore easy to clean the bolt. great tourny gun not to expensive. the regulator is what turns the velocity up or down which is a very good idea rather to have a tool to do it. it's not a big and bulky marker it can be used for a front player who wants to have the quietness and accuracy, or even anyone who wants those features
its a good marker mainly because of how quiet it is. when your on the field and you're shooting at someone they have a hard time finding out where you are. get it and you wont be dissapointed.
Automag, Bushmaster, Angel LCD, Dark Angel LCD, Shocktech Autococker, Shocktech Intimidator, 03 Shocker, Nasty Impulse, Classic Intimidator, Tippman A5, Tippman 98....Matrix is by far the best, BY FAR.
Dye Ultralight & IS Boomstick
Halo B & Evolution with Z Board
CP clone reg, PBC fron lpr reg
Free Flow Bolt Kit (and Lethal Mods)
Dye short cradle and PE tank
Get a good barrel of your choice, I personally like the Ultralight, it's light and quality made. The bolt kits increase gas effeciency, do a really nice trigger job, and throw a tank on it, other than that, you really dont need upgrades, those are just something to buy if you really want them, but they dont make that noticeable of a difference unless its a high efficiency bolt kit.
Dead on accurate and Bloody fast
Gas efficiency is annoying and weight is annoying and maintenance!!!
The matrix is without a doubt the best gun I have shot so far. It is far more accurate than the autococker, people who say autococker-like-accuracy are wrong, it is better, it shoots ropes and strings of paint. If you have your trigger tuned right is can be just as fast as an Intimidator without the trigger bounce. The grouping that these guns put out is just incredible. I refuse to use any of my other guns now, because compared to the matrix, their performance is dissapointing. It is so quiet, make that thup thup thup sound instead of thwack, like my timmy. My matrix chops paint but that is only because i havent set the LPR correctly, i have a friend who has one and his is set coreectly, i wailed away on his trigger and didnt chop a ball, mind you i was using a halo, but they dont load consistant 21 ball streams so, ya know, i skipped a few shots. My cousin actually put his finger in the breech of the gun and let my friend go rapid fire on his finger! The bolt would just bounce off of his finger, it was awesome, i dont recommend doing that because ya know, the slightest pressure spike and you will never again be able to shoot 21 balls per second. Great gun, hands down the best, I have bought one more gun since i got my matrix and i ended up goin back to the matrix. Awesome gun, simply awesome. Watch out though, cleaning this bad boy is tough and if you dont grease it just right, it will leak.
Get the matrix! Dye is making them with eyes at decent prices, the regs on those are not that great though. I got a TMC and when tuned properly, it is the best most reliable gun in the world. Get a Matrix, you wont be dissapointed.
weight, air consumption (can be remedied with bolt kits), lots of O-rings
this is one of my favorite markers of all time. a few of my friends had gotten them, and i have use them from time to time. boy are they fast! we are talking 16+bps with little effort. the only things i have seen that are faster are excaliburs, angel speeds, and e-blade cockers. its got flat, consistent trajectory, like a cocker or a shocker. it is quiet, like a shocker. the whole gun feels great, unless you get one of the special edition ones with metal grips and the beehive regulator. also, the matrix is low pressure, and i don't know anyone with a correctly working matrix who has chopped a ball. not one, and i know a lot of people with matrix-es. the only downsides are weight (but all similarly built guns are a tad heavy, like angels), and the air effieciency. at first it is horrible. if you get a bolt kit, it gets a lot better. those run about 90 to 120 bucks, so it isn't too big a price. and besides, it will get you enough shots for one game, and that is all that matters, right?
this is a great gun, and if you can find an LED matrix somewhere, you had better get it before i do. it is a fast, low pressure, accurate gun that is great for high level play anywhere right out of the box. i give it a 9 for its wieght and stock air efficiency, but it should really be more like a 9.3 or a 9.4

better bolt, soda can mod
extremely quiet, very acurate
very tall, weird trigger at first , gas hog
the first couple shots i let off like one every two seconds to get the feel of it broke, i thought sh*t more problems, but it was just bad paint, anyways i couldn't believe how quiet this gun is all my friends used spyders and they kept asking me after the game were were u shooting from cause i couldn't here u all i heard was a wall of paint hitting my bunker
this is an excellent gun to buy if u have the money but i suggest getting a better bolt(image)

def. need a halo or egg
fast, simple, good consistancy, doesnt chop with an LPR, efficient with a bolt kit
pretty heavy, ugly, needs LPR, gas hog w/o a bolt kit
2 of my teammates just got them, and i am very impressed. Not only are they capable of fireing fast (16.7 with the stock board), but it is very easy to hit such speeds. I sorta suck at shooting electros, but i can max it out easily. I really like the feel of it. Although it is sorta heavy, it balances nicely. I really like how simple it is. 1 button, its either on or its off. Nothing complex to have to learn. The downside is that an LPR is almost necessary. It just doenst shoot well at all w/o it.......lots of chops, erratic velocity, etc.
And yea its heavy and ugly, but it shoots way to well to care about that. Its also pretty easy to clean and stuff.
Overall, i love it. easily the electro that i like best. Its Extremely fast. If only i could shoot one with a 20 board....... Oh well, it just shoots great. Simple as that.

LPR, this makes it nearly impossible to chop paint awesome upgrade at around 55-100 dollars. Gen E bolt kit, allows gun to cycle up to 22 bps and allows 33% more gas efficiency, another awesome upgrade. Fast hopper, either halo or EVO2
fast, accurate, long range, and is cheap
Gas consumption, buy bolt kit
chopping,get LPR, evo2, halo, or turn ROF down
This gun has no milling, no fade,no style. This is really good for when it comes to price, you probably think...wow this gun looks like crap....looks can be deceiving. An angel costs so much more so you think this gun can't be better? your dead wrong angels cost more because of body work. An angel cant compare to performance of a matrix for the cost the matrix is such a better deal unless you go for style, even if you go for style just buy a matrix and get it milled and anodized and its still less than an angel! This gun is perfect for any type of play, tournaments, woods, hyperball, speedball etc. with its range matched with speed and accuracy you dont even have to be a good shot... just spray and pray :) this gun will never let you down and same with the people from thematrixcenter they have a tech that can answer any of your questions about the matrix so if you dont know what to do just check in there, their service is great too. Dont get butterflies about deciding on what gun, to get just go for the matrix its awesome
this gun is perfect for anyone if you have 650 dollars id just spend it on the LED matrix its an awesome gun that wont let you down at the more important times. words cant describe the awesomeness of this gun....and yeah im sure awesomeness is a word....

matrix-pretty much stock right now,but not for long
bolt kit to fix the gas hog problem, a nitro is a must, and a halo.
fast as any gun ever made.
it is a gas hog. picky about o-rings. high matenence.
this is the best gun ever when it is working right. it is a gas hog, but what should you expect, it is fully pnumatic after all. one o-ring that is messed up can screw up your whole gun. leaks are a frequent, but easily fixed problem. i reccomend buying this from a pro shop, not online(because it is so picky) especially if your not exactly smart about fixing your gun. you need a halo definatly b/c your 12volt will never in a million years keep up with it unless your trigger finger is terrible.
buy it it is sweet. i love it and as long as you know what your doing youll be ok.
watch out for shockteck delrin sleeves i bought one and it was too small for my body tube.
