The Indian Creek Designs Freestyle Pro 2005 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I acquired this marker in a trade, and I'm happy I did! I really don't have much to complain about, indian creek tends to make decent markers.
The bolt out back is great, the snatch pin slides out easy when not aired up, and stays in no problem when in use. The bolt is very easy on paint and with the eyes I have not chopped a ball yet. It's programmable and easy to walk, as well as comfortable to hold and shoot.
The stock regulator seems to work okay, however I have had it stick a few times to I'm wondering if I need to re-built it or just re-grease it. The ASA works well enough, no need to really replace it unless you find something that holds the tank more comfortably. The feedneck however, is a bit of a pain! It's easy to just replace it with a clamping one, but if that's the case why didn't they just put one on in the first place?
All in all, this marker is quite smooth and very easy to use. Smaller profile than the other freestyles too, and lighter!
One of the better electronic markers that I've used on the field. Even though ICD is done making markers, they still support them with a few triggers, feednecks and complete o-ring kits. Can't go wrong!
I purchased my Freestyle Pro off of ebay new. When it arrived it had an outdated version of the Predator code. I called Tag Sportz and they couldnt give me a manual to learn how to program it. They said to send in the board for a flash update but it was $50. I ended buying a new NOX board. The gun itself is pretty nice, it shoots great but uses ALOT of air. I only played with it 4 times because it was always leaking or not working. I recently took it to a licensed tech, which was harder than you think. There are NO licensed ICD repair techs in Canada. From what I hear ICD no longer exists. This marker has been one of the worst purchases I have made in paintball. Stick to what is a guarrentee. EGO or Dye. My Ions earned their keep, but the "high end" FSP ended up useless. I gave it away as they are only getting 100-200 on ebay.
Dont waste you money on ICD, any of them. Stick to the proven markers.
impulse with blade trigger,halo b,WAS board and new designs bolt n' hammer.
A new board and LPR, that's it.
Fast, light, small, and looks sexy.
Uses more air then any other gun I have seen.
My friend bought this gun a few months ago and I have played paintball a few times wiht him since then. The first time it shot really slow at like 9bps but he made a Reg adjustment or something and now its shooting around 18bps. Its a really good gun except its eats up air like Homer Simpson and donuts. MY favorite thing about the gun and one of its key strengths is that there is no external moving parts. This is great because not as much dirt and debris can get inside the gun on the field. Crap could still get through the barrel and feedneck, but if that happens to you then you have got to change something about the way your diving into bunkers. The downside on this gun other than it being a gas hog is that with the stock board you can't change much. It's rate of fire, eye sensitivity, debounce are all set and can't be changed. And of course the fps can be adjusted.
It's a great gun for the money. It looks sweet, shoots sweet, and the weight is sweet. It should have no problem keeping up with the timmies, shockers, and DM4s. I am giving it a 10 because when I wrote this review it had a perfect score and I don't want to be the @$$ to take that away. It really deserves around a 9.5
angel, timmy, matrix, cocker,karnivor,emag, pretty much all high end guns
max flo 68/4500
halo b w/rip drive
atm barrel (cause no stock barrel matches all paint)
possibly trigger (deopends on what you like though)
dye sticky grips
Would say no kick, but no gun has no kick at all
On/off switch to close to the grip (see below)
I have played with this gun several time and I must admit that it is exceptionally well made. The balance of the gun is great and it is very easy to keep on target with it good consistency, and nearly no recoil when shooting.
-The accuracy is fine with the stock barrel if the paint to barrel matches but otherwise io think the barrel is to short at 11''.
-The trigger is nice and good amount of adjustments can be made to make it the way you like it.(but it may not be perfect for everyone but all that left is preference)
-The guns reliability is about average since if anything goes wrong all you do is switch out the o Ring and your ready to go again so keep a replacement set on you.
The only real problem with this gun that i can see is that the on/off switch is just above the back part of the grip and while wearing my gloves and switching hands during play i accidentally turned the marker off.
All in all this is great marker especially for the price. For sure this gun belongs in the upper echelon of markers. The only problem is that the on/off switch turn off when i brushed wuith my hand and it only happened that one time to me. Great marker great for any tourney player imo. Due to the on/off switch this gun is not a perfect 10 but it is closer to a 10 then a 9. really about 9.6

barrel.the stock one is alright shoots pretty straight and accurate but every gun needs a barrel...fast loader cuz this thing rips!!
Fast..accurate..light.. efficient..what more do u need
Maybe the stock hpr but mine is very good over the chrono..stock barrel
Ok..first off when i received the gun it was amazing..nice ano..and very sexxy. first thought were how light the gun is..but comparing to the shocker the shocker whens hands down..but the freestyle isnt that much heavier..maybe a couple ounces..just got back from my local field and the gun ripped..no chops and i shot bout 1500 or so..no barrel breaks thanks to my redz barrel kit which is super sweet..at first it was kinda a gas hog but now that it is broken in theres no worries bout the efficiency..very fast rate of fire..very easy to get it to string off bout 15 or so balls per second..extremely accurate..over the chrono stayed within bout 4 or 5 fps with the stock reg and i was shootin bout 280 or so the whole day..no drop off or anything..mine didnt come witht the prodigy trigger which i think isnt as good as the stock freestyle trigger..or as comfortable..the gun gets a lot of attention so be ready for the locals to start droolin..lol
I would recommend this gun to the novice or tourny player looking for that awsome gun but not spendin alot of money on it...good quality in a non expensive package..go out and buy one and then start increasing your mow count....
