This electronic assisted semi-automatic marker has an Information Center with Voice prompts and Vibration mode, LCD Backlit display and Double Touch Trigger, Quick Strip Pin, Vertical FeedPort, Volumizer, Regulator, Integrated Sight Rail and Custom Aluminum Grip Frame, making this the "Cash Money" marker for 2002.
The JT Excellerator 6.0 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Piranha VTL G2
-14 inch JT barrel
-VL revy or better
When I used this gun, it was fantastic! Its trigger is very useful, and its still pretty accurate even without a nice, long barrel. People say it chops balls--- NO IT DOES NOT!!!! They probobly only say that because they use bad paint. The game timer is very useful, and good when you need to know how much time is left in the game. The Hi-rise vert. feed port is very kewl. Most blowback guns with a vert feed have some trouble getting balls into the gun. Trust me, i dont kno why, but it just seems that way. It looks really kewl, too.
-some people say its heavy, theyre just sissies
-Its a blowback gun (but watever)
Excellent gun. I already orderd mine, and u should to! Im entering tournys with my team so thats why im getting this gun! The 6.0 shoots about 10 BPS, which is good enough in my book!
Jt Excellerator 6.0, stock setup, except for a 12v revvy, 20oZ...
the stock barrel is not bad, there is just better barrels out there. maybe some n2 if you can afford it.
very very fast gun, sweet looks (very intimidating), runs pretty good on co2, voice prompts (not much use but still cool), vibration mode, a trigger pull that is indescribible, its so light!
i always hear the girly boys complaining about the weight of it, its not that heavy, just go pump some iron for a week or two spaghetti arms! chops minimal amounts of cheap paint. ( i use marballizer, that seems to be working very cooperatively ) thats about it.
nice electro marker, good price (usually), *Intimidation* seriously, you should look at peoples faces when you walk on the field with this thing, its like they are looking at a rocket launcher. its great, cuz all you need is the revvy to make it look real tight.
This gun is super super super fast! It has this cool lcd display that greets you when you turn the gun on this gun, it has voice prompts which to me are completely useless, but it's still cool. It also counts the number of paintballs fired in the guns lifetime and in a game. By the way this gun is FAST! The trigger pull is just like a mouse click.
It chops balls if you don't have an electro loader, like a 12v revolution.
Buy this gun! It's worth the money it's only $230. This gun is definately worth all 10 points.

AT LEAST all the upgrades I have listed on my gun above
Great looking gun, fast trigger.
CHOPS CHOPS CHOPS!!
It is absolutely rediculous how much this gun chops, even after I have had the ball detent moved back 1/8", had the top of the bolt shaved down, AND drilled holes in the ball feed to reduce the blowback into the hopper.
I am so disappointed in this gun and with JT for not doing a factory recall on this gun. I have lost a considerable amount of respect for JT. They should have never released this gun to the public knowing how badly it chops. The ball detent is too far forward, thus allowing a piece of the ball ABOVE the one in the chamber to be chopped off by the bolt, and because of the intense blowback it sprays paint up into the hopper.
The stock barrel stinks, and with broken-ball-paint in it all the time, it is almost hopeless.
I have put a tremendous amount of extra money into this gun (AFTER already paying the hefty sticker price) and when you take away all the bells and whistles this gun offers (talking/vibrating grip, shot counter, etc) this gun would be outperformed by a Stingray.
I would most definitely not recommend this gun. My brother owns an Excellerator 5.0 and hasn't had any probs like I am having...but I would definitely recommend a solid, reliable gun like the Spyder E-99 or the new Electra is SWEET.
Icon-E, Spyder Electra, Spyder Electra DX, Black Dragun PiE2, Black Dragun Compact, Black Dragun LCD, Black Dragun Sniper, Excellerator 5.0 etc....
JT Excellerator 5.0 /w new style bolt.
JT Excellerator 3.5 /w ported feed neck and modded trigger pull.
New barrel and a Revvy hopper for speedball.
- Shiny (Bad for Woodsball)
- LCD records total trigger pulls (Unable to reset)
Alrighty, I only tested the Excellerator 6.0 a few times, however I am familliar with the rest of the Excellerator line. The Excellerator 6.0 is geared mainly for speedball players.
There were a few inherent design flaws with the Excellerator line that had a lot to do with the bolt. The Excellerator 6.0 has a different bolt, but it still causes a lot of blow-by. To combat this, JT lengthened the feed neck of the Excellerator 6.0 so that balls won't jump into the hopper so easily. This is fine for speedball, but woodsball this is a clear disadvantage. As is the colour.
There is a new bolt for the Excellerator line and it reduces blow-by a lot. Call JT and ask them to send you the new bolt for the Excellerator 5.0. It makes a huge difference in the perfomance of this marker.
This marker is great I must say. It has a fast rate of fire. Easily compares to high end electros and the price just can't be beat.
A feature that makes this marker oh-so-much better for speed ball is the regulator. This helps a lot if you want to run a HPA system.
Now as far as paint goes, Diablo blaze rolls out the detent and out the barrel so it is a poor match. Good paint for this marker is Nelsplat (Not Hot Point) and the hard-to-come-by Diablo Arctic Inferno. They have a good paint to barrel match and won't roll out of the detent. If you use good paint this marker will not chop.
This marker is easily modded as it uses most standard Spyder parts (Spyder springs, O-Rings, Spyder threaded barrels, standard drops etc....).
All in all, I like the Excellerator 6.0. It's not as nice as a Excellerator 5.0, but hey I don't play a lot of speedball. If you use good paint and have the new bolt, this marker will be as reliable as a Tipmann. With the new bolt I give this marker a 9 out of 10. Without the new bolt I give it an 8 out of 10.
For the price, this marker just can't be beaten.

AGD Minimag w 68ci nitro tank + revolution hopper ( one of those new ones )+ schyco balistics handle/chamber+ AGD drop foward+ All american 1 piece 12 inch barrel
Smart Parts Shocker 4x4 Turbo + 68ci nitro tank + revo hopper+ Custom on off valve+ 3000 vision sight
my friend who owns it says you need a new barrel.
Its a nice fast electro marker that you can find anywhere. Its pretty cool lookin and is accurate with a Custom Products barrel for it.
Ive screwed around with my friends gun numerous times and have found one flaw in the design of the JT 6.0 ecelerator. The feed rises about one inch above the gun putting a hopper in perfect places for pansey ass snipers to pick it off. Its been done many times before.
Great Gun ecept for the one design flaw If you can eliminate tis tramendousl gravity feed you would be fine.
Tippman Stingray Gt Commando, which sucks, Spyder Compact, Autococker
Jt 6.0 13" barrel and red dot sight
Nothing this gun is awesome exept a revvy that's about it.
this gun is the best electro for its money, it has the best accuracy for a stock barrel ever the colors are awesome and the gun is really well balanced, this is my first electro, but i've taken out cockers with thing and compared to tippman this is a whole lot better, by the way did i say this gun shoots fast.
*A little blowback (who cares)
*Chops balls 10/500, better than a tippman
*Some say heavy, but ther little girls.
This is an awesome gun for anybody,
