Visible break-beam anti-chop eyes The Angel 1�s main pneumatic advancements have been made possible by the deletion of the rechargeable battery, allowing the Angel development team to completely re-zone the Angels classic 3-bore design in to a unique hybrid chamber operating system.

The front third of the 2 lower bores have been merged in to 1 chamber, to increase the volume of gas held in the exhaust valve chamber by 65%, which significantly lowers the pressure of gas used to propel the paintball, whilst substantially improving shot to shot consistency and accuracy.

The LPR has been fully re-designed and relocated from the front to the back of the main body. The LPR chamber is 80% larger and now sits directly beneath the Angel 1�s all new custom made 3volt solenoid, to allow direct air injection of the low pressure gas into the solenoid itself.

The custom solenoid then feeds this low pressure gas directly into the Angel 1�s super smooth ram, deleting the use of gas galleries and avoiding the use of small bore hoses, that restrict the flow of gas between the LPR, Solenoid and Ram.

These 3 core advancements in layout and design deliver, sub 200 psi shot pressure, faster recharge rates and an ultra consistent cycle pressure of 55psi.

The Angel 1�s electronic control system has been re-designed to maximize its performance advantages, whilst offering the most user friendly navigation system available on any paintball marker to date. The new Angel board is packed with more features and adjustability than any aftermarket offerings, whilst it�s intuitive blackberry style navigation system and multi coloured, crystal clear OLED display, make it incredibly easy to operate. In addition to semi auto, full auto and all major tournament modes , the Angel 1 comes with a host of user programmable ramp and breakout modes as well as a self diagnostic system that ensures you are always kept informed. The board also features a USB port, for easy at home software upgrades to conveniently keep your Angel 1 current with any software changes or updates.

These major pneumatic and electronic changes combined with Angels legendary build quality and an array of parts included as standard such as clamping feed neck, centrally ported easy bleed ASA, 3 bore size 2 piece barrel kit, 3 finger 45 frame with integrated mounting rail and comprehensive tool kit, sets the new benchmark for today�s high end tournament ready paintball markers.

Change the mini-reg. I thought that HP would work well but ended up using LP for testing. With HP I experienced high velocity and inconsistancy.
Strengths: Nice balance, Better trigger adjustability,nice OLED display
Weaknesses: Some bugs/defects experienced - see below.
Review: To say the least, I was really excited about trying this marker. Since I knew the owner of the shop, I said that if he allowed me to test the marker for a day and I liked it I would buy it before the end of the day. I made sure to take care of it.

Out of the box I was surprised to see the size and weight reduction from the past WDP markers. It felt quite solid in my hands. .

I purchase 2 boxes of paint (1 for play and 1 for testing). After shooting about 2 pods I noticed that the roto-breach was a bit loose. I could wiggle the thing. My past WDP markers never had this problem before. After shooting about 3 more pods I noticed that the eye covers was a bit loose. I could actually some light on the body because the eye cover slightly seperated from the body. The store owner adjusted the dwell and the tried to repair the loose roto-breach and eye cover. We also adjusted the trigger. The marker shot like a dream. BUT after shooting another 4-5 pods the eye cover started to come out and the marker stopped shooting. I had to constantly push the eye & eye cover back every 3-5 pods so that the marker would shoot again. The rest of the paint on the first case was shot by the store owner and a couple more friends. The eye cover still crept out of the socket slowly. This was very annoying. One more thing to note was that I put in my crossfire HP tank to test first. We could not get the velocity down to 285fps (field's limit). After using my friends LP tank velocity limits could be reached and adjusted without problems.

Anyways got to play 4 games with this marker. The balance was decent. I prefer the balance of the older WDP marker (speed05 & a4fly). I experienced this marker going to "safe mode" twice during the day. A very annoying problem. I was also constantly pushing the eyecover back during the games. The issue that night arise is the eye cover coming out if your brush it against a bunker or take a dive.

Later, we shot the other angel 1 he had and we experienced the same problem with the roto-breach and eye cover.

Anyways I declined on purchasing it due to the many problems we experienced. The store owner understood and said that he will be returning the markers to WDP to get the problems fixed.

Conclusion: BOTTOMLINE....This marker has a lot of potential. I would wait a couple months before buying this marker. There are way too many bugs or defects. Wait for WDP to iron all the problems with it first.

I gave it a 7 because of all the bugs & defects. If the problems are solved/fixed, I will redo my review.
