Strengths: I have the double trigger and I really like the feel. The gun will not win any beauty contests, but once you have it in your hands and playing with it none of that will matter.

This is a great gun with no frills in the electro department, which I like. No full auto, which is useless, or any of that other crap!

The gun takes cocker barrels, which was one thing that I really like about this gun. The Excalibur is a good step from a cocker and if many of you are like me have plenty of barrels that you like for you cocker. This way you don't need a new barrel bag and have to waste money on that.

There are no upgrades from the start, which I think is nice.
Weaknesses: Well, like I mentioned above, it will win no beauty contests, but with good milling and anodizing it will look much better.

The gun does kick a little, but that just takes a little gettting used to and I am told that it will go away as the gun gets broken in and you are able to lower the pressure.

The gun is pretty expensive, but all are in this level of marker.

Conclusion: I wanted one since they first were coming out, and I waited for over a year just to see how they would do.

They were a little slow with getting them to the market, but AKA wanted to make sure they were right.

I almost got an Angel waiting, but I found some people who had one on the internet and talked to them. I had never shot the gun before, but decided to take the plung. I am glad I did.

Strengths: As advertised:
efficiency, ROF, trigger, and generaly the TLC that went in to the design, construction, and finishing.

The Excalibur is bullet proof!
Weaknesses: I am at a loss for what is bad about it:

The stock grips have to go, the choice of including a .684 barrel wil confound some but those of us who use high grade paint will appreciate it.

It is expensive but so are a plethra of other high end electropneumatic tourney markers, and this one is practically hand built!
Conclusion: There is NO upgrade path for this marker, and none is neede as it includes some of the most sought after parts in the paintball industry as STANDARD.

I would like to see a ported bolt, while it would NOT be as air efficient I just like them!

Just add a good HPA/N2 system (I use the Mac Dev Conquest) and a barrel of your choice (cocker threads) and you will smoke EVERYTHING!

One suggestion, I think the Ricochet 2k is the loader to use, after testing it in the Excal I will no longer use a Revvie.

Strengths: Very consistent. I chronoed at 281, 281, 281, 282. Very quiet when you fire it so the opponent has trouble figuring out where the balls are coming from. Low pressure so it is very efficient, operates at 150-180 psi. Rarely breaks a ball, generally will stop on one before breaking it. I haven't broken a ball in the last 2.5 cases of paint. Prior to that I broke a few but I believe I was out shooting my hopper. Very very accurate even at high rates of fire. Well balanced and not too heavy. Closed bolt. No upgrades needed except for the high rise. I understand you now can order one with the high riser on it. Excellent customer service, if needed. Cocker threads. Semi automatic board only which means it will not have to have a replacement board to be NPPL legal. The ROF can be changed via a computer link from 10.5 to 13 bps. Excellent double trigger, no slop, and easy to adjust with set screws. No need to use the expensive regulated air tanks with it, works fine with a preset tank. The battery is easy to get to and it uses a standard 9v with the hard coated connectors (some markers use the flimsy flexible connectors to the 9v that will break).
Weaknesses: Limited colors and milling styles.
Pricey but you do get what you pay for.
Had to modify my Dye stickies to get them to fit.
No battery light.
Does not come with a tool kit. That is extra.
Conclusion: Excellent marker for the player who needs to out shoot the other high end markers (angels, autocockers, etc.) in a tourney. It is pricey but you have to decide if it is worth the incremental value for consistency, low pressure, accuracy, less broken balls, and workmanship.

Strengths: quiet
pretty fast
semi-small
looks nice.
smei-only (I like that)
possibility for an ACE
cocker threads
efficient
Weaknesses: The single trigger I felt wasnt that great
its not as fast as my matrix
its a little heavy
too pricey
it IS possible to chop with the one I shot (3rd gen baord, 2nd gen body)
Conclusion: It performs great stock, but is a little too expensive, its better than a shocker, but has a bit to go to compete with matrix/angel..

I would say go for it if money is no object.
