Products Used:
Marq 6- The only other Bob gun I've shot. The Protege is almost the same gun with an open bolt. In fact, it is the same gun.
Marker Setup: Bob Long Protege, VLocity, same tank as below
Tippmann a5 with responce trigger, flatline, crossfire 70/45 hp
Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel (stock is 689 bore, so one bigger and one smaller would be good)
feed neck (sometimes turns, not that huge of a problem)
Strengths: stock board has 15 bps lock, 4 eyes compatible, VERY light, fun to shoot
Weaknesses: a little loud, bouncy trigger (I like, no one else does), no manual
Review: Ok, first let me say that I love to shoot this gu when it is up. I bought it having no experience or knowlage of any of the other intimidators, so i did have some trouble getting it up and running without a manual to read. Yes, it does not come with a manual, rather, a "quick start guide" of how to turn it on and change the settings. A little wierd to me but what ever. I brought it to the field ans the chrono was +-4 bps with the stock reg. so it is quite consistant. I personally love this gun more than any other I've shot, and I can't wait to get 4 eyes for it.
Conclusion: Love it.
