The New Angel speed has been designed to out perform any gun in its class!
WDP have devoted incredible attention to the Trigger operation of the Speed. Having established a clear industry advantage in being able to cycle and fire 31 balls per second they are now concentrating on helping you get closer to actually achieving that ROF.
The EMF trigger is a highly engineered performance component. The trigger pivots on instrument bearings, ensuring a slick, smooth movement when pulled from any direction. The trigger gets its name from the integration of Electronics & Magnetic Forces.
Having a non-contact traction and repulsion magnetic action, which offers incredibly fast trigger return with no spring and zero friction or side-play. It is adjusted through the external Vernier trigger wheels to set the amount of trigger travel. The Opto-Trigger activation point can be set separately though the Toe adjuster.
To further enhance its performance the new Speeds EMF trigger system is mounted in a restyled grip frame that combines with a new ergonomic fore-grip to deliver the most balanced, comfortable and solid shooting platform available. The new ergonomic fore-grip has increased gas flow characteristics allowing for a further reduction in the Speeds operating pressures and recoil, whilst still maintaining its position as the most gas efficient firing system in paintball.
The WDP Angel Speed 2005 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I have used several paintball guns over my paintball experience. Currently I own this and a shocker. I love both guns, but this one feels more comfortable to me.
2005 Angel Speed Pink
05 Ultimate Vision Shocker Blue Fade
Evil Pipe Kit (Angel)
Halo B black
Dye C5 Jersey and Full Redz Gear
Nothing necessary, but a barrel kit makes it shoot perfect.
extremely adjustable trigger
very comfortable to hold
a little heavy
I love this marker. It's my favorite of all I have ever used. I don't know why I waited so long to write a review on it. My friend has an 06 and there really isn't a whole lot of difference in feel or performance. I've gogged many a noob, and made some impressive bunker moves with this marker. A+
This marker is a little outdated and I haven't had much time for paintball lately. I'm sure you could find one relatively cheap now. I would definitely recommending giving it a try. I would give it a 9 because nothing is perfect, but rarely do people stick with that. So since it deserves a 9.7 I'll have to round it to a 10.
*Lightweight: Very light. Easy to run with if frontman. With everything on, very light.
*Fast!: This marker is so very fast. With eyes on, the gun shoots well over 25bps.
With the eyes off, caps out at 18 bps.
*Cost: Great gun for its price. $800 for a gun that shoots over 25 bps, its better than
A DM5/DMC for $1500.
*Trigger: The trigger system is amazing. 3 different ways to adjust your trigger. Toe,
return space and closeness to the contact. Very customize-able
****My first review of this gun, i said there were cons. Now that i have gotten use to it, found out that all the chopping that i had reported before was all just barrel brakes. The only con i could think of, is if you are running a High Pressure tank through it. It has a minimal amount of kick back.****
Get a new barrel that matches the paint you are using, and you will rip. It is very frustrating to buy a gun that has alot of hype only to have it chop over a 100 balls. Get a barrel kit, save yourself the hassle of matching bores and paint. Although I ragged earlier on this gun, I give it an 10 for speed, lighweight, and bang for your buck.

Angel Fly LCD, custom e/Cocker, old school Shocker
05 Speed, Halo with victory board, Dye barrels
fast loader and a barrel kit to get the most out of it
9 volt operation, light, magno trigger, Angel eyes
Trigger debounce could be better,
Best marker I have used yet. I was going to get an A4 Fly until I saw the Speed on the wall, the 9 volt and the trigger changed my mind also I think it is lighter then the Fly. This marker is just amazing I borrowd a Halo B with a victory board and the paint just looked like a pink rope coming out of the barrel. At the chrono I shot 284 four shots in a row, the best marker I have used at the chrono.
I definatlely recomend this marker to any one looking to spend around a $1000 you get a whole lot of bang for your buck.

Easy to confuse settings
Trigger set a little tricky
Overall this is a great gun and is worth the 950 i paid for it. It is very fast, my evo2 cannot keep up with it. The eyes work well. And the gun is light about 2 lbs. A few things i did not like right away was that the anodizing was not the greatest, nice color but its not the best. The settings for the gun were a little tricky at first but they become easier as you access them more. Lastly the new trigger adjustment. Now for all you people who get this new speed, remember not to adjust to toe adjustment to far because it will not fire. Overall it is a great angel. Besides somethings being confusing, its probably just me, i overcomplicate things and get nervous the first time i work on my gun. I suggest you all buy one and just take what i said into consideration
Get the gun, its under 1000 dollars and its the same thing as the a4 fly without the lcd screen

Qloader-If you have a fast gun you need a fast hopper, But mount it direcly to the feed neck since aiming an angel isn't worth it.
Quick strip bolt
This is really the same as the '04, except it has eyes and a better regulator. Both of those are important upgrades but it's not a great gun yet. Less accurate than my Spyder rodeo. Slower than an Ion with a Taedo board. Heavy as a Tippmann. Do I need to say more? the on/off switch is nice but it is ugly and you can accidentaly turn it on and off. The gun was not accurate at all even with an dye ultra lite. Too expensive for it's perfomance. just plain not worth it.
Buy an Ion and upgrade the board you can get and Ion with a Taedo board to do 36 bps on mild ramping. that's fast! The Ion Is also more accurate(the most important part) and cheaper. So it wins.

Dust black with red parts 05 Speed
Empire Reloader B
Redz Pepperstickz barrel kit
Trinity T- lock feed neck
Tadao Angry board
backed by a great company
Good stock parts
Consistent (+/- 3 fps)
I had the problem with shutdown
I got this gun two years around mid November or early December and I love it.
It's good on air (1600 or 1700 shots out of my 70/45)
WDP has great customer service, they always replied to my Emails within 24 hours and they were very polite in their responses.
The stock parts are very high quality and preform nicely. I reccomend lowering your LPR to 55psi. Make shure before you adjust the LPR that the Mini reg's output is 270psi.
I had the shut down problem where the board turns off randomly during play, but I only had this happened to me once. It is fixed by sending your gun to a tech center and they will re-flash your board for 25 bucks.
It is kinda heavy compared to my team mates Ego and my friends shocker, but I mostly play back/ mid so the wight isn't a problem for me because I don't do allot of snap shooting.
It lobs when I don't have a good paint to barrel match, but i have a kit so I don't have to worry about it any more.
The stock board isn't very adjustable, all you can change is dwell, hopper type (eye delay) and trigger sensitivity (kind of like simulated bounce). Also the only mode you get is semi, but soft wear version 7 has PSP/ COFA ramping.
I had problems with occasional chops, but it was because of my ram coming out of alignment, so i put some blue locktite on the threads and no more chops.
I like it.

Angel Speed 05
egg2 w yboard
68 4500 crossfire LP
18 inch boomstick
cp roller trigger
smaller feed neck
Some kick(lil more then dms. lil less then cocker)
complex if your new
Ok well this gun is amazing all around.. just the feel of a true angel 90 frame feels really good.
SPEED: this gun has so much potential if u can walk fast and find a good trigger sweetspot and when u find that u can rip this thing as fast as your hopper can go
WEIGHT: angels arent the lightest gun on the marker but dam this thing is hela light... my barrel (18 inch dye boomtick) almost weights more then the speed. easy to hold for long times and firmly.
TRIGGER: the trigger is one of the best iv ever felt.. considering i think the ego has the best trigger on the market.. it has a pretty light magnet resistance and a SUPER smooth pull from the barrings... but i still recommend the CP roller Trigger.
AIR: efficiency is pretty decent for this gun.. u can get 800-1300 shots easy from a 68 3k fill and even more with a 4k fill
AIM: accuracy is really good stock.. but if u want those long distance ropes nothing is wrong with a boomstick.. they are kinda heavy tho compared to the stock but it hits a dime everytime.
All in all i think this is the best angel for the money and i am going to have to give this a 9 out of 10 because of the kick and kinda strong tigger.. im getting new trigger soon so ill update if its better
well i went from an old spyder amg which doesnt compare at all to automag now to my angel
angel speed 05
stiffi 12" barrel
pmi 45 4500
And just all around great
None ive only had it about 3 months nothings gone wrong
well as i stated i moved up from a spyder amg to a automag to this. I would have to say that this marker is just flat out amazing. its beautifull, fast, accurate, light, and stands out. i have the black and red scarface angel. everytime i walk onto the feild kids are always checking out my gun. well enough b.s. about that.
fast fast fast fast fast. when i first went to the feild to use it for the first time i was amazed. its just soooo amazing. and to tell you the truth im not the fastest shooter. but after i got the angel i just realized my true potential. it was alot easier to walk the trigger and it was just alot more comfortable.
this gun is amazingly accurate. its amazing how accurate it is. when i play at my local feild and theres those new kids who sometimes accidently keep their foot poking out of the bunker ( i used to do that ) i can just pop out for a second or 2 shoot about 3 shots and hit their toe. its also amazing doing run bys at tournament practice.
i know i didnt mention how quiet it was. but with the stiffi on this gun. its a work of art at how quiet it is. just amazing!
the gun is also very light for what it is. i mean not as light as the ego or shocker but its still pretty light. i mean i play anywhere from front-back. it all depends. and when im playing front I do just fine running straight to the 50. it also does well with dives which is a plus because i love to dive. i remember a time when i had my spyder i did a dive and the gun was so heavy it fell right out of my hands :(. but not with this angel.
when i said fun in the strengths i meant that even when during the week when i get home i can just load a hopper and walk out back and shoot at anything and have fun just painting anything up.
I love this marker its my favorite gun ive ever used and had. i dont know how reliable it is because ive only had it for 3 months but i have not had a single problem with it. not once! so if ur looking for a good marker at a good price. then i suggest this. because it has never let me down. has never given me a problem and only gives me good comments from other people checking out my sweet al pachino angel!

Light not as light as my shocker but who cares
None as of now
I got this gun brand new for a real good deal $595!!!! crazy isn't it. My friend tony hooked me up at www.sakworldpaintball.com check it out he has good stuff. Anyway ive played with this gun alot since i got it and i love it. it is extremely fast, i meen u see videos of egos and timmys and stuff and their fast but start to sound and look the same speed but this gun is so fast u can notice the difference thats why the name "speed" is appropriate. Anything uve heard about angels lobing they fixed it this thing is dead accurate with a freak on it and doesn't lob at all its a lil heavier if ur used to shockers and other really light guns but nothing too extreme. i haven't had chopping problems at all but ive heard that other people had since the reg goes after 20,000 supposedly but that can be fixed with the CP reg mount and a new reg of your choice. u dont need to upgrade this gun at all just hook up the ASA and ur ready to rip u can change the loader settings like I did and didnt make much of a difference but dont mess with the dwell its not needed unless u know what ur doing or really want to. its hard to mess this thing up anyway . Maintenance is sooooo easy just take the bolt out lube it up and wipe down the gun its harder to clean my halo then it is to clean my gun. I have the 45 frame and its really comfortable, between the reg grip and and the grip frame it fits my hand great.
It gets a 10 because i love it and its a great gun and its fast as all hell. and the trigger is the smoothest ive felt if u dont know how the trigger works check it out at wdp.tv i think its a very smart design. failed to mention that out of the box i reccomend to sand down the black oring inside of the feedneck so the loader fits real tight and the oring wont move so its wont block the breech from balls geting to it, i have also not changed the battery since i bought it it still has full power, WDP was joking when they said it last 200% longer than any other markers.

-maybe a new feedneck, the stock feedneck although holds a reloader b and halo b snugly, its not a clamping feedneck
Great stock reg, barrel, trigger, amazing out of the box, incredibley fast, light, simple
Needs an on/off although most high ends do
My friend is borrowing a team mate of ours 05 speed when he went to Poland (dont ask) and we got to use it this weekend. The first time we used it, at my house, i was extremeley disapointed with the speed of the marker but this was when we were using my egg II. This weekend however we used a reloader B on it and immediatley i was able to shoot ropes of paint with ease. The marker is light, but balanced, unlike the shocker where most of the weight is on the back. The reg was very consistent and the stock barrel was extremeley accurate. The trigger was nice and didnt need any time to get used to it. Angels are also very easy markers to opperate, fix and use in general, all you need to turn this on is the flip of a switch, hold the trigger for a while to turn the eyes off and i didnt have enough time with it to see how to change the modes. If you chop, which is very hard to do, its field strippable. 4 of my teammates had angels, and i was used to shooting them, but they were 04's, 2 rastas and 1 was joy divison and the othe one was an old Ir3. Shooting these markers in order: ir3, rasta or joy and then the 05 the improvement of each model was very evident. overall i love angels, simple, hardly ever break down, fast as hell, light but balanced and very simple, not to mention its great out of the box.
WDP has outdone themselves yet again, and i cant wait to get my 06 speed soon, and im expecing nothing less than perfection. Excellent high end, one of the best guns ive ever shot.
