BLITZ combines the revolutionary “FEATHER Striker System” with the feature-laden “ZEN” Circuit Board to give players an unparalleled edge. The new “Feather Striker System” is 30% lighter than traditional striker design. This breakthrough reduces the mechanical recoil. This recoil reduction gives players a smoother shooting marker. The “ZEN” Circuit Board comes standard with advanced modes that comply with the regulation of major circuits. Players can take the BLITZ out of the box and hit the fields across the world and dominate the competitions.
The Azodin Blitz is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase it new.

battery life(read review)
People don't like the feedneck but it works great.
I broke one ball and then it only shot wierd for like 5 shots then shot pretty good. then i cleaned it. TAKE THE BATTERY OUT OF THE GUN WHEN YOU ARE NOT USING IT. it eats up battery.. the thing in the back that holds the spring (the thing you turn) sometimes moves a little hole that the bolt goes into. make sure it is facing up and not somewhere else, so then the bolt can actually go down. used to drive me crazy until i found out what the problem was

Well, I have had this marker for about 6 months now. I have shot at least 7 cases through it by now.
One of the first things I noticed when I first held it was how light it was. I don't have an actual number, but I'm going to guess it is somewhere in the low 2 pound range.
It is significantly lighter than every blowback marker I have ever seen.
The Azodin Blitz is possibly the best feeling markers in the sub-$200 range. Others have much thicker grip frames or annoyingly sharp milling that makes it difficult to hold. However, this is not the case here. The trigger pull is very smooth all the way through. The ability to adjust the strength of the magnet is very helpful.
This marker is fast. There isn't that much else to say. This is partly due to a nice trigger. I have walked it at 17 bps (Used Chronograph to measure) and it shot very well at that high rate of fire.
The efficiency of the Azodin Blitz is much better than other blowbacks on the market. I can get 4 1/2 pods off of my 48/3k steely tank. With a full 68/45 fill, my friend has gotten 8 pods, or almost twice as much. I played at a scenario game and only had to fill up twice the entire day.
However, this marker has some drawbacks. Because it is efficient, it uses a smaller volume of air at a higher pressure to fire a ball. This causes it to be slightly louder than many markers.
The stock spring on the Blitz is fairly stiff. It can be a little rough on paint in certain conditions. However, this can easily be fixed by using quality paint. Even with bad paint, chops/breaks are infrequent. I usually have 2 or 3 breaks per case which is not bad at all.
Overall I really like the Azodin Blitz. The strengths greatly outweigh the faults. It is a great deal for $170. If you want further colors, pay $25 extra and www.darkstarpaintball.com will anodize it in one of several color choices on their website.
Buy it. Great marker for the price. Might as well just give it a 10 because its weaknesses are found on almost any other blowback marker.

This gun is pretty bad compared to other guns on the market. It develops its own problems, such as leaking, breaking balls, board eating batteries, and being extremely innefficient(especially humiliating because its a poppet gun which are known for their efficiency). I've had this gun for over a year and I completely hate it. If your looking for a gun below $300, do yourself a favor and stay away from this gun. Get a smart parts vibe, for $10 more you get a gun that I'd pay an extra $100 for. If I have this gun chronoed at anything above 150, it will break extremely often, and if I go to about 200, I am garunteed a breech break every time(breech breaks literraly prevent the bolt from moving and is extremely hard to clean because it's nearly impossible to get the bolt to move out of the way). This gun is a poppet(poppet refers to the method in which the gun fires the paintball), yet is extremely inefficient on air. Yet another problem is the bolt will randomly uncock itself, which causes a number of things: 1. You are forced to recock the bolt. 2. The paintball that was in the breech was pushed forward a few inches when the bolt uncocked itself, letting another paintball in the breech. 3. You have to call yourself out of the game, go and try to force the bolt to move, then spend at least the next 20 minutes cleaning your gun. After this whole word wall of hate, I will end with the single good thing about this gun: You can get a decent firerate on it. If you have a good trigger finger, you can maybe get 10bps with it, but it doesn't mean too much when anything mentioned above happens.
Don't buy this product. Spend $10 more to save a world of stress and pain on yourself from trying to get your gun fixed. It's caused me a lot of stress and the only reason I haven't thrown it in some dumpster is that I can't afford a new gun at the moment.

the biggest problem with mine was that it came leaking through the barrel, i hevent even touched the internals. Azodin said to fix the cup seal, witch was in perfect shape.
However, mine may be one out of 1000. Other than that one problem everything seemed fine, i liked the twist lock feedneck, the trigger, and the electronics.
my best advice on buying this isto buy it from a local store instead of a website in case it beaks on you
