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.
JT exellerator 6.0, empire reloader, CP one piece barrel.
barrel CP one piece is awsome, to shoot this marker you must have an electric hopper.
cheap,shoots pretty fast
every O-ring breaks, stock barrel is horrible
I bought this gun for 100 dollors brand new I thought it was worth it since MSRP is 400.
It worked fine for the first couple of weeks, put about 3000 rounds through it and then the first O-ring problem happend, the ring on the low pressure chamber fell apart bought a new one problem fixed. Then a week later hammer O-ring fell apart, about 2 weeks later the valve orings died, then three of the orings in the regulator fell apart. I dont know what to say I have used every oring in by seal set I bought and then some. I guess this gun was worth it for the $100 I spent on it but if I spent over $200 and this happend I would be pissed. I cant belive they would do this. oh and now the little mini guage is now stuck at 500 psi I dont know but I would hope that they would put some more quality in to their products.
I guess I would get it but if I had to do it all over again I would have gotten a piranha 2k3.

chromed out. pretty fast looks good and runs with CO2
ha its got no upgrades and mine has had a lot of problems
over all an ok gun for a new player wanting to try an electro. an expensive experiment maybe but mines on e-bay if your interested. its better than the VL triton and way better than a talon so i'm grateful for the performance it does have so its ok
really pretty ok speed crap for a barrel and not that cheap but its ok
JT Excellerator 6.0 (Fully Stock), 20oz CO2, 14" Teardrop
Hopper (at least Revvy w/X-board or even Reloader), Barrel, Reg., get it repainted, Microswitch
light trigger, good sized grip frame, bolt okay i guess, d/f
Reg not so useful, blow-back of balls, pb life counter evil
Ok i've use this gun about for 2 months playing in the woods around my school. FIrst off the barrel is an easy fix just go grab a nice 12" and probably just get HPA for it. out of the times i played with, I just out ran my reg. hopper but you would do that with walking it rite? The finish of the marker is just to hard to hide (except when ur playing in the cloudy days) but I do highly suggest getting it painted better. Go slap on a new reg (probably try palmer stab.) but also the trigger pull is just too far for me... upgrade the swtich and u will be in hevean. This is a good gun for noobs and a backup. U can switch out the bolt for any timmys but still this one works.
If you have enough money just get the Impulse or something near it. But this gun is good only if u manage to shell out the cash to upgrade it to eitehr LP or just replace the parts i suggested.

chops and chops paint all over i'd rather have a standard hopper /looks
what i think of this gun is that is chops with a good loader and it is not worth the time to mess with don't get this gun. i know about 5 people with this gun and me and all of us has the same problem i realy don't like this gun i wish i would have never bought it
don't get this gun it chops no matter what/not worth the money
Spyder TL (great dependable gun for beginner, but slow & cheaply made comared to JT)
Dragun TES (very fast but not dependable)
20 oz. Anti-Siphon CO2
eVLution II loader, low-rise feedneck
14" J&J Ceramic Barrel
Palmer Stabilizer Regulator
AKA Tornado Valve
50g microswitch & 16uf Capacitor
Loader- at least a 12v Revvy ($70)
Drill out ASA & Vertical Adapter (free)
microswitch ($2) and capacitor ($3)
Cheap! $87 on eBay
Easy to work on
Good quality machining & annodizing
WOW! What a fantastic marker for the price.
I had heard lots of bad things about JT's before I used this marker- unfortunately, for good reasons. It came very poorly assembled- leaked from the regulator, bottom-line & vertical adapter. Holding the marker between his knees, screwing in the CO2 tank, my son got a big 2nd-degree burn from spewing CO2. Plan on replacing almost every O-ring right off the bat. Luckily, working on this gun is a piece of cake- all the screws take a 1/8" allen (except the regulator adjuster), and machining and annodizing is excellent. The striker and/or bolt can be removed independently, both without tools- nice.
Before I even used the gun, I bought an Egg II & the J&J barrel. First time out, I set the regulator (manual recommends between 650 & 800 psi, so I set it at about 700-725 psi (kind of hard to see on the guage- markings are small) & set velocity to 280 fps, though it was hard to say WHAT the velocity was- it varied between 245 & 305 fps! I chopped or broke paint in the barrel probably 10 out of the first 25 shots out of the gun-- ERRGGGHHH!!@$%@$@^#&!!!. Next, I tried one of the field's rental air tanks, with the output pressure set at 850 psi- this made matters even worse. Dry-firing three to five shots in rapid succession, the guage showed a pressure drop to under 500 psi. The rest of the day I played with my Spyder. After a frustrating day I read Otter's low-pressure article & threads in PBnation, I decided to try a few mods to the 6.0
Phase I mods included drilling out my ASA and Vertical Adapter for higher flow (especially the brass "screen" in the VA), drilling the venturi out of the stock bolt, and installing an anti-siphon tube in my 20 oz. CO2. WOOOHOOOO!! Next time out, I was able to run about 450 psi & never chopped one ball in a whole case. Velocity still varied a bit (+/- about 15 fps), but at least I was playing. I bought another 6.0 on eBay as a back-up gun.
Phase II mods included a Palmer Stabilizer, AKA tornado valve, 32 degree spring kit & Spudnukl bolt. I also switched out the microswitch and the capacitor in the trigger frame (required some soldering), and now I can walk the trigger at about 14 bps. With these mods I'm now shooting 280 (+/- 5)fps on CO2. With a proper paint-to-barrel match and good paint, I can shoot within about a 6" pattern at 30 yds. Didn't break or chop one ball in more than a case. Even a couple tournament players shot it & were impressed. When I told them I paid $87 for the gun, they got sick!. Of course, now I have more than $250 in upgrades to my $87 marker, but more than $100 of that is the loader and barrel- which you'd add to any gun. Only the Dragun T.E.S. comes close, performance-wise, for the price, and to really match my modded 6.0, it needs a better regulator.
Out of the box, the 6.0 was horrible. Not counting the loader and barrel, the gun only needs a few low-cost mods (Drilling-out ASA & VA- free; Anti-siphon- $10; Trigger-frame mods- $5; Bolt- $20) to make it competitive with $300 & $400 guns. With a top-notch regulator, valve & spring kit, this thing is competitive with guns three and four times its cost, including the upgrades. Plus, it's fun to embarrass the decked-out tournament-player snobs shooting $1,200 markers with an $87 gun & wearing levis and a sweatshirt!
spyder imagine, jt 3.5e(tested), spyder fenix(also tested).
jt excellerator 6.0 12 volt revvy, smart parts 14" barrel, 20 oz. co2
an electric hopper is a necessity, i've tested it with nitro and it worked really good, need good paint, and the stock barrel is fine (but i got a longer one to increase the accuracy.)
wow... fast, accurate, pretty, and it's been a great starting gun for me.
the hammer came assembled upside-down. lol. (i guess this isn't really a weakness.)
This gun is awesome! I've shot 2,000 balls without one chop, It shot fine right out of the box with not one problem, the voice thingy didn't work (I don't really care. I guess it is just nice to know it is there.), I've gotten a few compliments, And yet I only spent $109.00 on it!!!
I am not too experienced, but I would definitely reccomend this gun to anyone. newbie to veteran. I really like this gun, and it shoots great.

JT 6.0, CP 12" 2piece, PMI 68/4500, ST on/off with Stubby drop, Bob Long Torpedo
Just ordered my ALIAS!! FEB. 9 2004!
Custom Products 12" two piece, Bob Long Torpedo
Kind of slow... feed neck on really tight...
Well dont get me wrong i love this gun... it was my first gun i just ordered my Alias. The problem that i have with this gun is the feed neck. When i went to unscrew my feed neck for the first time i stripped it. So they had to order me a whole new one and JT isnt that great at costumer service. Anyway this gun shoots really accurate but also slow...
I recommend this gun for a first gun! also its really cheep now where ever you go... u can find it for $100 for the price its awesome...
I would get this gun as a first gun... but if you are going to play tourny ball ( DEPAUL UNIVERSITY!NCPA!!!) i would save up my mom and wait for a gun
JT USA Excellerator 6.0
20oz A/s co2
18v Revi (old school)
32 degrees Wisper or Quite Riot barrel
Evil Intimidator Delrin Bolt
Zenitram Dragun tooth Trigger
Spring kit (as needed)
easy to strip
comes with tools, o rings and, valve core
was not screwed together tightly
reg to high
spring is hard (315-325fps)
$99 for a electro spyder, you can't beat that. JT seems to have stollen the best ideas from all the clone makers.
-Timmy bolts are so much better than the spyder ones. The replacement anti chop JT one is fine to start but get a Delrin bolt for better service life.
-The barrel has to go. It's loud as hell, shinny, and is not that good over all.
-The trigger is loose as a $10... Get a Black Dragun trigger that will fit. I like Zenitram's Dragun tooth Trigger. It's 3-way ajustable (F/B,S/S, Pull)
Get at least a Revi x-board. Egg2 and halo is good. The Halo b may overload the detent.
I have shot over 12k rounds thru this gun with not a single break. All this bad thigs said is BS.
Evil barrel kit, 12V Revy, 20oz CO2 anti-siphon, Tigershark bolt, drop foward, macro-line, polished internal, drilled VA, spring kit, Torpedo reg, modified valve.
Electronic hopper, barrel kit, delrin bolt
Good value ($100)
Rarely break balls
Not as much aftermarket parts as a spyder
When stock, it shot pretty good. Accurate, fairly fast, and efficient on air, what you'd expect from a good beginner marker. The the recoil bugged me and I had to go LP.
So when I started upgrading, it started to get pretty expensive. But in the end, I was happy with the results. My LP setup was running at about 390 PSI. It never broke a ball in about the last 3000 rounds. Shot as fast as I'm able to walk w/ my fingers (any faster would be a waste anyways). And with the barrel kit, I was shott'n darts.
JT tried to make it look really pretty, but that made it really bulky and heavy. I'd personally sacrifice the good looks for a lighter marker.
As I gained more experience playing, I became less concerned with bps and began to focus more on reducing recoil and improving accuracy.
It's a 10 because I'm happy with my current setup. Fast enough for me, accurate, no breakages, and very little recoil (LP). But if I had the chance to start over today, I would get a spyder (e99-$130) because they're lighter and have a lot more options when upgrading.

This is a great marker! the trigger feels like a mouse click. It works great on CO2 but i still suggest getting a HPA system. The drop forward doesn't really help that much but it doesnt affect your preformance. The myth of chopping paint is not true. Just get a motorized hopper like a revvy or something. Lubricate it often though. I suggest getting a spyder delrin bolt (the JT is spyder-compatible). The stock barrel is awesome! It is very accurate. Upgrade to another if you want, but you wont need to.
Get this marker if you are a beginner/intermediate player. It preforms really good and it never failed on me (unless you run out of gas or air). If something happens i will edit this review.
