* Dual gauge block and micro gauges for LPR (Low Pressure Reg) and HPR (High Pressure Reg)
* Custom anodized Vigilante HPR (different design than the other ICD markers)
* Speed Ramp Teflon bolt with curved top to further reduce paint breakage. Bolt also has ball detent grooves and bolt can be removed without having to entirely pull out the bolt pin
* Smooth low profile lightweight body
* Dust finish fade anodizing
* New style LPR housing and Ram Cap have Quick Clean grooves. The grooves make it much easier to do disassembly by hand, but also wipe clean with a finger tip. When playing X-ball you don't want to spend hours getting paint out of every nook and cranny
* Low rise feed neck
* Runs on CO2
* New trigger
* New board functionality - far more adjustment possibilities including multiple firing modes and adjustable "debounce"
* Cut out in the grip frame to allow you to put the battery in without removing the frame side. (need to use metal sleeved brand name batteries like Duracell and Energizer, some rechargeable batteries have a thick plastic casing on the batteries that makes installation and removal tight)
**Accepts Autococker-threaded barrels
The Indian Creek Designs Lasoya ProMaster is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Lasoya Promaster, CP on/off asa(just ordered the gun it will be here in two weeks
Asa, thats it.
Fast, sexy, fast, fast, light, did I mention fast?
Ummm....nothing worth telling about
Well my friend got his lasoya and I was extremely impressed. Before we shot it we had to get a asa and a drop foward for it and that was a minor setback. This gun is not idiot proof. My friend screwed the regulator screw on there snd stripped it, plus he did not put teflon tape on there before he did it. It has been leaking majorly out of the reg. but he called ICD and they sent him another one and its on its way, I will update after I play a game with it or Test it more properly.
IF you want a fast gun with no upgrades needed, then get this gun. I will give it a 9 bc it was leaking.
GZ Intimidator, Smart Parts Impulse & Shocker, Angel, Autococker
this marker is very similar to a GZ Intimidator in look and feel. Is on an even playing field with the other markers I've used
Clamp Feed neck, Force Feed loader, 68/4500, Evil Pipe barrel
New Barrel, Smart Parts 2 piece is my preference
cost effective. Bought 3 off ebay for under 300 dollars
Stock feed neck and barrel, eye covers not flush.
The markers body is clean and simple. The operation of the gun is straight forward, and the ease of field striping is another bonus as it's very easy to break the gun down. Battery placement, and firing mode selectivity is a little hard to understand, but it is easy enough to set and uncapped firing with the eyes on. Light weight marker, so far so good
This marker, for the price is one of the better deals a player can find. With uncapped firing mode and eyes on this gun shoots as fast as any other I've fired and I've fired my fair share. I'm waiting on a new barrel but this gun for the money is hard to beat

Took the gun out for the first time today after picking it up off of pbnation. Wow. with the proto barrel this gun was accurate, quiet, and amazingly fast. A seattle Naughty dogs player was there with his luxe and i was able to keep up even with him alright. Fast as lightning. It does have a little kick but eh i cxant complain. if you have the chance to get this gun do it. well worth the money
great gun. Fast light, quiet, looks good, just a well rounded, non chopping, sweet looking marker.

asa (the marker doesnt come with one)
No stock asa
Front grip is crammed with macroline and guages
This is my 3rd gun in my collection, and by far my favorite. this gun shredds! I got it brand new on ebay for $100, and is with out a doubt worth that.
The first time i pulled this out at my field, the guy with a $600 dollar ion walks by and comments "a promaster... haha i havent seen one of those in years."
After about 5 rounds of consistant pwnage, he asks to take a few shot.
He was blow away at the performance.
Now so far the only thing that has frustrated me about this gun, was the 2 weeks i had to wait for the asa to show up. Running stock barrel wassnt a real problem, and i figured out a way to ghetto rig my hopper. So all additional parts are really un-needed, it still plays amazing without.
If you EVER get the chance to buy one of these things... Dont pass it up, it will not disapoint.

Period of Product Use:
Pro master, with stock barrel and feed neck, Velocity Jr. loader, and 45/68 Crossfire carbon fiber tank.
A new feed neck is a must--mine spins like crazy--, new trigger--depends on your personal preference--, and a barrel couldn't hurt.
The Pro master is: light, compact, durable, fast,and quite accurate.
Have to watch the gauges. Check settings when you get a Pro master. Feed neck.
I really like the Pro master, it is durable, fast, and compact, everything a paintball gun should be. I like how you can take the bolt out and field strip it with no problem. I would say that you NEED to get a new feed neck the stock feed neck is very large and doesn't fit many loaders. I can also say that i don't like the trigger but that is my preference(you might love it!).
Overall i really like my Pro master, and if you keep it in good condition it could be a great investment for you.

Bang for your Buck
Easy to use Board
When i first got this gun i have not played in a couple years. I loved the game so i get back in to paintball with my Promaster. I go and test the gun when i first get it and i love it. It shoots very fast and is very reliable. I played with it for the first time last saturday and was overwhelmed with the results i got from this gun. I was not to happy about how the gun did not shoot as straight as i wanted it to so i bought a J&J Elite Barrel System. I went to walmart and bought cheap paint and shot it. My lowest bore is .685 and the paint was still smaller than that but i tried it anyways. It shoot so much straighter than with stock barrel even with the paintball being to small. One key investment i am planning on making is a new regulator and new ram. It does kick a little bit but nothing that I can not deal with while playing.
That same day i shot a DM7 with a freak kit that a buddy was using, just to try and test and see how it seems. After using the DM7 i wanted my gun back just because i didn't like the way it shot and felt. Maybe it was me but i didn't think it was as fast as my gun maybe it was and i wasn't shooting it fast but i def think if you want a gun for a good bargin this is the gun to have.
Key upgrades would def have to be a barrel. While the stock barrel is decent it does not shoot very straight which might be the paint, but still not what i would like it to be.
Regulator is the second upgrade which i think it key to this gun. Maybe its just where its new and not got much paint through it but its very inconsistence but if you are just a weekend player no need to buy it unless you want the best stuff like i do.
Last upgrade is prob a clampneck. I have a evo 3 with my gun and it didn't keep up with it very well. I traded it in on a Reloader B and i cant outshoot that hopper with the unlimited rate of fire(ROF) on my gun.
If you have extra cash maybe get a ram to reduce a little kick and just make the gun shoot alot smoother
If you want a bang for your buck buy this gun. It is as fast as some of the high dollar guns and with a few upgrades can most definately hang with the TOP DOLLAR GUNS.
A feedneck, HP reg(will explain at the bottom) and a decent asa. defiantly a fairly good tank and hopper.
CHEAP, has a LPR and plenty of BPS.
feedneck, HP reg.
Alright i shot this marker for six months and here is my honest review. First off you must get a ASA. not a big deal u can cheap out and get a simple duck bill but i went with a CP on/off with a rail. the feedneck is NOT adjustable. which means on a few hoppers u may get away with it. On my halo B the feedneck was too thick. i had to get a adjustable one. Sadly the first time i aired up the stock reg leaked. its a common promblem on the lasoyas. I heared its a simple o ring but i replaced it with a CP one instead. that is the real weakness of the gun.
For the good now. Being able to have a lpr gauge is awesome. Even though u don't need it during the gas up procedure it does come in handy to make sure the pressure doesnt get too high. nice feature but she sticks out a little not a big deal, i can live with it.
The dip switches are a little confusing at first. if u don't really understand it there is a vid in the ICD forum on how to change modes and turn eyes off. once u do learn it its nice to be able to turn eyes off and reach 20 bps in the middle of a game with the trigger only.
Okie now for at the field experiences. I shoot about 280,283,277 at the chrono. Pretty decent hope for a little better when the gun is fully broken in. i currently had one leak at the field. after a game i heared a little leak from the LPR body. After balancing the regs it went away all day. honestly never had a issue with the gun(other then that LPR leak.) and its seen about 10 cases so far. Accuracy i gotta say it shoots very well. with the smart parts barrel i never seen a shot curve. always a straight as an arrow. for kick. i would compare it to about a third of a kick from a 98c. some but nothing to be afraid of.
we'll go on to the looks. mine is gold/black fade. pretty decent anno. The looks of the gun is nice. only regret is that they would spend more time on those ugly eye covers..Other then that tons of people confuse it with a 07 borg. and currently no one at my field, not even the refs know what the thing is.
well so far shes been good to me. If your willing to spend a little cash in some upgrades,some time in balancing your regs,and time to learn it all. its a damn good gun with a lpr for one hell of a price. plenty of vids online on how to maintain promasters. im giving it a 8 out of 10. i had to buy a few things to make it work and in my book nothing is perfect

When I first got it I was disappointed because of the air leaking out of the lp regulator. I changed regulators shortly afterwards to an evil detonator for $24.99 and a AKA SCM-III LPR for $50. It has performed beyond expectations and as good or better than some higher priced guns. I have a total of under $300 in this gun and there is nothing in that price range that can compete with it.
I would strongly recommend buying this, it is a great value for the money.

I bought this gun, about 3 weeks after it went on a major sale, due to Chris Lasoya droping the ICD contract. Originally I was looking at Promasters, and I went to my local shop where they only had both the Lasoya and Standard. I held them and knew right away which one was nicer, The lasoya was lighter, smaller, and lighter trigger pull, however at the time the Lasoya was $475 and the Promaster was $250. About 2 days after on most websites the Lasoya droped down to $200 due to factory discountinuation. I bought It, and its no longer sold at most places. The only places I have found it being sold is on Ebay for around $500. Trust me if you can still find the $200 price tag, BUY IT this is a $500 gun and you can see it with the preformance..
I took this gun to the field after popin on an old ION asa, this thing rips paint!!!! I was shooting uncapped semi with a 15bps hopper, and i was skipping every 3 shots. Im estimating about 18bps with my halo.
Seting up this gun is quit complicated. The battery is a pain in the @$$ to install you gotta like flip it around. And the board is complicated. Go to Indian Creak website and print out a manuel it will help alot..
Alot of people complain on the regulator with this gun, and how its very inconsistant. This was working fine, then at the end of the day I turned it on, and it wasnt working good, It seemed as if the eyes were turned off, and every 4 shots a ball would drop and you couldnt go fast at all. I looked at the HPR gauge and the thing was past the 600!!, It turns out one of my seals blew, but I just sent it in to ICD and got a brand new regulator and everythings working great.

I've had this gun for a little over a month now. The duration of ownership does not allow +1 month as an option. I love this gun. Granted that I dont have much experience with gun ownerships, for me, this is a great first electronic paintball gun. My first gun was a Spyder Xtra 2006, noted above. The mechanical was a great intro gun, but as I received a taste of what paintball guns were about, I wanted more. I picked the Lasoya Promaster over an Ion due to the reviews and bang for your buck. I was also partial to the Ion crowd, (I'm no Ion hater though).
This gun shoots incredibly fast and insanely accurate. Being new to the electronic field, I have only been able to semi-auto up to 13 bps. Still working on that technique. Having this gun allowed the gunpower to advance on bunkers and flank the opposition. The lightweight gun with a drop forward compactness made it easy to run from bunker to bunker. I have more experimenting to do with the dip switch options, but love it already. Give me a few more games with the gun and I'll write up more with performance, speed, and reliability. Thanks for reading.
It's a great gun, and for the price of $199, I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a nice electronic paintball gun. Rating a 9 because I have not experienced the true awesomeness of the gun yet.
