Experience:

Products Used:
black dragon(tested)-no where neer as acurate or as fast or as reliable.
Marker Setup: Piranha e-force vtl. Evil Delrin Venturi Bolt. Richochet 2k hopper. Venturi Bolt Backup. 68ci 4500psi pure energy. 14oz CO2(backup). 7oz CO2(backup). CP Flame Drop Forward. Expansion Chamber. Bottom Line. 14" Progressive Smart Parts.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Evil Bolt. Fast Hopper. Nitro. Bottom line set-up at the minimum. After market barrel(stock breaks to many balls)
Strengths: Everything is good on this gun. it comes with a venturi bolt.. very good bolt compared to the g1-3 they dont have em. fires really fast, if u have a normal hopper u have to get an electro. this gun will beat your hopper even if your finger cant go that fast the bolt and sweetspot can. nitro with this gun and an extended barrel and the evil bolt make this gun shoot incredibly awsome. the nitro keeps the shots very consistant and the barrel makes it very quite and the evil bolt makes it shoot farther and stronger. my freinds have told me when we play that they can barely here my gun shoot. they say it is really quite. i wouldnt no for 2 reasons....i havnt been up against one and my gun fires faster than my freinds so they shoot at me with theres and i shoot them with mine.
Weaknesses: the only bad is the stock barrel. it is very loud and it cracks balls open for some reason and there is no accuracy on it compared to an extended.
Conclusion: i have done everything u can do to this gun exept a beavertail.....pmi has good service...my gun got really messed up so i sent it to them through "Paintball madness"(best store ever) and it was back to me before they said it would be and its been fine since. in my opinion this is the best gun that PMI has made and it is a very affordable one so im giving the gun a 10/10 for PMI. and since i havnt shot an angel yet i dont really no how they shoot so they get a 15/10.

Products Used:
Electro Spyders
Marker Setup: PMI Piranha E-Froce VTL with Ram Air w/ Guage, PMI Vert Reg, Evil Delrin Bolt, Evil Smokestack, PMI Perfect Drop, 32* Whisper Barrel, PMI 68/3K Nitro, Halo B
Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel, Delrin Bold, Electronic Hopper
Strengths: Gun shoots extremely fast (has a sweet spot acts like full auto). You can modifiy the gun. Great feel with drop it is well balanced. PMI has great customer support.
Weaknesses: Stock can be loud. No beaver tail to protect googles. Known to chop balls. To me all the bad can be fixed read my conclusion.
Conclusion: People complain how loud blowbacks can be. I have learned that you can quiet a EForce with a couple of simple mods. One is get a new barrel with good porting. I use a 32* Whisper and it really quiets the gun. Another is get an Evil Delrin Bolt. It will quiet down the gun as well. With the Ball Chopping problem just get a 12V Revvy or Halo B. With the Revvy you will want to add a smokestack you you get on your gun like I do. Most chops come from out shooting your hopper. Also adjusting your velocity will stop chops and breaks.You can also convert you gun to Low Pressure setup(Ram Air, Reg and N2), which also will quiet down the gun. To me you get the best splat for the buck with this gun.

Products Used:
This is my first gun.
Marker Setup: Piranha E-Force VTL
PMI regulator - chrome
PMI 20 oz. CO2 tank
Viewloader
14 inch All American barrel - chrome
Recommended
Upgrades:
Get an all americian if you can afford it, if not then look for a berrel in the $60 range to really see a difference from it.

I have a regulator on my gun, but if you're only using co2 you are fine with a bottom line or a pass thru foregrip.

Do not use a loader without an agitator. the viewloader is good, and you would probably be fine with a revvy.

If you play tourneys with this gun get a timer.

if you don't run remote then get a good drop forward.
Strengths: This gun is cheap, fast, and consistent. The first day that I used it it chopped some, but did'nt clog. after that it worked out fine.

The electro grip is great. Not as many features as a storm frame, but still it does as much as you are allowed to in tournament play aside from timing.

The default barrel is not great, but it gets the job done and at 9 inches it doesn't get in the way.
Weaknesses: It has a slightly strong kick. not enough to hurt aim, but it is difficult to find a good trigger setting when the gun shakes that hard.

The gun can be loud, but in paintball who cares about that.

The biggest problem I have with the Piranha line is the fact that there is no available anti-chop mechanism, but then again they are not tounament level guns so I should probably not expect that from them.
Conclusion: The E-Force is a great rec. gun, and it is very near to many tournament guns in quality. I'll take it over the complexity of an autococker any day. (except the day I decide to sell it $$$)

If you are a high level touney player looking for a miracle at under $200 kill yourself. there are lots of things like that in heaven. (I bet angels are free there) But if you are a rec. player looking for a great gun that can pass in tounaments this is the perfect gun for you.

Upgrades:
barrel NEED REVVIE AT LEAST IF NOT A HALOB
Strengths: FAAAAAAAAAST im not talkin 9-10 bps, im talkin 14-15 very fast for 140 $$
looks cool
upgradable
not a spyder, so not metric, and parts a easier to get
comes w/ rubber grips, and look better than those hard plastic ones on other frames
Weaknesses: there was a little scrap piece of metal on the frame, where the milling hadnt taken care of it, coulda been left, but was easily whacked off with an allen wrench

Conclusion: very good for a beginner marker, if you can afford a revvy with it

Products Used:
piranha BL VF G3
Marker Setup: Black+chrome piranha E-force VTL with gas-thru grip, smart parts teardrop 14" barrel, 12v revy hopper, CP chrome flame drop forward, chrome beaver tail sight.
Recommended
Upgrades:
new barrel, electro hopper, and gas-thru fore-grip.
Strengths: EVERYTHING! It has a mouse click trigger pull and with the revy I can crank out 10+ BPS! Its pretty quiet too! It hardly ever chops(its only chopped twice for me) And really easy to clean!One pull of the strip pin and you can clean out all your internals! Also it is really cheap for the amazing quality.
Weaknesses: I can't really think of anything bad about it! I guess they could give it a better stock barrel but that is a more than easy fix.
Conclusion: overall this is a great gun! With it I was able to keep up with the cockers and angels in a local tourney my team entered. This gun is soooooooooo good for the price, if you have a chance to try it out or better yet buy it! you wont be disappointed!!!
