I got this drop on ebay for $30. attaches to my gun just fine and moves the tank ahead a good ways so the gun is more compact and easier to move around for snap shooting and for aiming. The color matches my gun well also. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get a new drop.
Seems good to me. good price and good product. I give a 9 because I am sure there has to be something better but not in the price range.

Will give you suffient room to fit a bigger tank.
Strong, durable, and very affordable.
Looks Dull. Just a simple looking drop forward that's all.
I got this drop during a special sale at my local shop and i got
it for a deal! $5 only! woooooh! so i was happy with that.
It ain't much of a flashy kind of a drop forward. but it does the job!
It will give you enough drop for the tank and pushes it enough forward
to give more elbow room, very great for peeking at corners!
This is a very affordable drop. Although it's dull and simple, that really
isn't much of a weakness. it's great to have as a beginner's drop forward.
If you don't have a huge tank, go for the medium drop.
PRICE, DEPENDABILITY goes hand in hand.
a great beginner's drop forward. i'd highly recommend
to people who wants to use a drop forward for the first time,
but yet has little money. You $$$ won't be emptied witht this
Drop forward, and it will give you the advantage you need when
it comes to placing yourself in shoot-outs!

Looks good, sturdy, does what it is meant to
Tricky to fix onto marker, no screws, need other parts
Nice looking drop foward, it feels very sturdy and robust. It puts my tank foward and makes the marker less end heavy. I would says its big failing is the lack of fitting kit that is not supplied. I had to go and buy new mounting bolts and a small part to change the angle at which the braided hose attached to the ASA. It fitted nicely onto the ASA though. To avoid having mounting trouble I suggest upgading the air line at the same time.
If you like the look of the drop and have the time to get all the bits needed to fit it then go for it. It does its job, but as I say it was annoying to fit to my marker, only dropping points due to this.

Has holes for mounting stock Tippmann ASA
Screws that come with it are too short for M98
Aluminum is weak (see review)
I bought the drop with a 32 degrees on/off before I found out how to properly remove my tank, so that I would stop burning up O-rings. Shortly after purchasing it I read on the forums here how to take your tank off correctly.
For those of you that don't know. Give your tank a full turn out. (enough so the pin valve in the tank closes, but not enough so that the O-ring breaks it's seal) And then shoot your gun up-side-down a couple times to get the pressure out of the system. Then take your tank off. Viola. Your O-ring is like new and your tank is off your gun.
Any how, the drop forward is great. The mounting system for the On/off is very, very bad. It uses a set screw. A little tiny set screw. So needless to say as soon as you put a tank on the on/off and start playing, your tank and on/off are dangling from your steel braided line and you have to carry them separately for the rest of the game. So I drilled a little divot in the top of the on/off body to give the set screw something to bite into. Then the rail system failed from the weight of the tank. I just got done epoxying the on/off to the drop. We will see if it holds. I would simply mount my stock ASA to the drop but, when I tried it and it looked very, very bad. And the epoxy was cheaper than a pretty ASA.
Nice drop forward, if you plan on screwing the ASA or on/off to it.
Bad set screw design.
Bad rail design.

This is a great drop for pretty much any gun. It significantly balances your gun weight, and looks good. I have one for my Ion because I couldn't stand the back weight when it was stock. Theres not much to say about drop forwards. It doesnt come with an ASA so nothing special.
If you are a speedballer this is a good gun to help you balance your weight when snap shooting. I would recommend a remote for a woodsballer.

Dovetail only fits with 32* asa's (review)
So i'm working at my proshop and this is my first time working in the drop foward section. This kid and his dad comes in to look for a drop foward on his angel 4. (apparently this kid just got his angel and never even had a gun before) so.. i tell them about the drop and asa's and they pick one out. It happens to be the 32* large. I fitted it in the gun and looked for the screws. All the other 32* drops had screwws but this one. So i spent 5 minutes cutting off some other screws to make the size. (they appear impatient) so i quickly screw it in and tell them to get an asa. They pick one out (shocktech on n off) I try to fit it on but it wouldn't. The doves are 2 different sizes... but i still tried it and it diddn't fit. So i spent another 5 minutes thinking that drop was faulty so i modded it a bit. The guys got impatient and yelled at me (LOL). So i go over get a shock drop and fit it in, screw it in. Then the price on the store to install everything on the gun, fit a colored micro line, change the settings to better ones, fill the tank, chrono, fix the tank to the appropriate pressure, set the gun to the appropriate pressure is 2.50. My friend who also works at the store was bored so he asked if he could do all that for the marker for free. But they yelled NO we don't need your help and payed and walked out. About 30 minutes later as we expected, they came back asking if we could do the marker check up. But I charged him 25 cents so i could get a gumball!
Overall, the drop is not any different from most drops not counting on and offs and custom made ones. This one is smaller and thinner and the rail only fits 32* asa's. So if u got the drop and don't have the asa.. good luck.

This drop forward is relatively affordable and adds alot to your gun. Perfect size. Was going to get a shocktech but the green on this drop matches my WGP green autocker perfectly. Shocktech and this drop are same size. This drop works perfectly in conjuction with my 16oz anti-siphon.
Get it! It is a good solid drop. Nice looking......

Not as much drop as i would have liked
Well i just bought dropforward yesterday. atleast i think the one i bought is the one i'm reviewing lol. this is the only 32 degrees long dropforward on here so eh. anywho, i really like the way this drop looks. it moves the tank forward a pretty good distance so i can bring my marker closer to my body and it always makes it easier to aim. however, i kinda wish it dropped my marker down atleast an inch more but i can cradle it in my shoulder better than i could with my stock dropforward. all in all,its a really good, solid dropforward and not expensive at all ($27 at my local shop).
good dropforward for the price. you should buy it if you like the feel of it. before you buy it, try to find somone who has one already and see if you like the feel of it. i highly recommend this one though. Happy Ballin'
