The Indian Creek Designs Freestyle 2005 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Limited edition blue gloss DM4 with the '04 NXL board.
2005 ICD Freestyle with a prodigy trigger and a Dye sticky grip.
All of the Dye C5 gear, Empire Reloader B, and a throttle tank.
A new reg.
Light, fast, easily upgradable, sexy.
Gas hog, feed neck lets hopper spin, stock trigger.
When I got this gun I immediately shot about 7 balls through it to make sure it worked. It shot great. I didn't like the feel of the stock trigger. It's uncomfortable to walk on. This is an easily solved problem. Buy the prodigy trigger and take the spring out. It shot so amazingly well as soon as I slapped that baby on. I also put on the Dye '05 sticky grip. That gives it a really good feel. The stock grip is crap.
I took it out to the feel about 3 days later for some actual play. I filled my 4500 tank to 3000 (that's the only guage they have available) and brought it onto the field. The beginning of the game went great. The only problem was, my hopper stopped spinning. Guess what. I was shooting to fast. I turned it all the way up and it was shooting unbelieveably well. Even at 237 FPS it still shot straight. I shot about 8 guys on the other team then the gun started to shoot low. I looked at my guage and it was at 1000. The biggest problem with this gun is that it's a total gas hog. I asked if I could use the private fill station and filled it up to 4000 this time. I went out and it was enough for the entire game. One thing that isn't really a big problem but it bothers me, is that the feedneck lets the hopper spin. The hopper won't come out unless you really pull on it, but it spins. Not a big deal unless you play snake. I just suggest getting a Dye no-rise. Same height and it will hold your hopper in place.
This is an amazing gun. Just play with a big tank. Get a prodigy trigger, a sticky grip, and a no-rise and you'll be set.
- 05 Freestyle (Red)
- Pure energy 68/4500 tank
- CCM carbon fiber barrel
- SystemX slider on/off
- AKA Sidewinder HPR
- B***H grips by Hybrid
- Prodigy Trigger
- NOX Lite Flash
- Empire ReloaderB
Stock barrel works just fine, but I like my carbon fiber barrel better. Nice grips would also make your fs look more pimped out. Changing the on/off is a must coz the stock looks kinda weird. NOX lite / NOX board
No kick at all. Small, light, accurate. VERY FAST.
Just the gas efficiency
Just try it yourself, believe me you'll enjoy it... You can run around easily... Also very easy to pimp out... Very good price too... Cocker threaded so its not so hard to find a perfect barrel... A lot of space to put stickers... FAST FAST FAST FAST... Accurate ... Make sure to have a lot of paint when u play, because you will love shooting this marker and next thing u know you're out of paint
Just buy the marker

various autocockers, Adren. Impys, various impys, shockers, timmies, angels
Vengence Autococker, 68/3000 crossfire, halo b, much more
new asa or sumthing cuz the thing on it felt like it was about to break plus it took me a while to get it to stop leakin.
FASSSSSSSST, this thing was rippin right outa the box
Looks really sweet
The adapter felt like junk and the gun was leaking for me
At first glance it looked sweet. The black and yellow were made for each other. When i saw it i had Mike gas it up. At first i didnt kno what to do but after a sc i remember how to turn it on and stuff. I shot a tank up and fell in love with it.
if you can afford it go for it, I know its on my list!!
-Wdp Angel LCD
-2005 Angel Speed
Well to me the angels are a completely diffrent gun in many ways, but the 2004 Freestyle is basically the same thing the only diffrence is probally the milling.
-2005 ICD Freestyle(w/Nox board)
-smartparts Freak barrel kit
-68/4500 crossfire tank
-Psycoballistics bullet drop forward
A new regulator, barrel kit, clamping feed neck
I have been on a novice/rookie team for 3yrs now and have had plenty of chances to shoot high end guns and I would say the 2005 Freestyle was definitley a highlight over those 3yrs. It has next to no recoil and is so light and easy to move around with it is definitly the perfect frontman gun. It is easy to shoot and when I say easy I mean it as soon as I picked mine out of the box I gased it up and put a box through it, I didnt have one ball chop and I was able to shoot a countinuous stream of paint at around 18-20 bps. The only problem I found with it was it is a gas hog as many guns are these days. I probally only got about 650 shots off of a 68/4500 tank. But this can usually be fixed with a new regulator and a couple of adjustments to the LPR. The biggest problem i had was that the screw that holds the eye covers on is made to short and after shooting the gun for a while it just came out along with the ball detent and spring.
I think if you have the money this is an okay investment if your thinking about getting one make sure u test it out and some other guns in that price range to make sure that this is the gun for u.

with Hybrid Grind (push button on/off)
Hybrid Blunt drop
more to come
feedneck - not necessary, but there are better ones out there
barrel kit - MacDev Matchstick kit works great
drop - ugly, retaining bearing doesn't sit tight
trigger - something wider for less side play
stock barrel is good
rips with the right feeder (Halo)
Better instruction booklet
Since mine is not a full production piece (got it at World Cup), I'm sure they will iron out some of the issues that I have with the marker. That is not to say that this is a bad gun, and you shouldn't get it.
The marker is great for being out of the box, but spend some time adjusting it before you get on the field. The marker is fast and when you get the trigger setup to your specs, you will not be able to out shoot it! It needs a Halo to feed this beast. Lightest marker I have ever owned! Barrel is good for now...
Gas efficiency is not great. I am going to try a better reg and tank (right now I've got the stock reg and a 68/3000 hpa tank). Probably something like a 68/4500 LPA tank with a Gladiator.
Milling could be better, with some modifications. Since mine is preproduction, hopefully full production will be better. Also since mine only has 1 switch, have the milling for the frame only be for one.
Please drop the on/off drop. Retension system doesn't work well, plus it's just Fugly! Also the pin could be chromed steel instead of brass.
setup to make this reach it's full potiential:
on/off ASA with mini drop forward
dye grip (or System X's new one)
