BLITZ combines the revolutionary “FEATHER Striker System” with the feature-laden “ZEN” Circuit Board to give players an unparalleled edge. The new “Feather Striker System” is 30% lighter than traditional striker design. This breakthrough reduces the mechanical recoil. This recoil reduction gives players a smoother shooting marker. The “ZEN” Circuit Board comes standard with advanced modes that comply with the regulation of major circuits. Players can take the BLITZ out of the box and hit the fields across the world and dominate the competitions.
The Azodin Blitz is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used. Check out the Places to Buy links below for places to purchase it new.
4800/3000 Alumminum tank
CP 14" .689 dust black
CP 2K5 on/off ASA dust black
Eyes are awesome (no chops) (or so i thought) READ EDIT!
Barrel has some drop-off
Barrel is a bit short (12 inches)
I have only used this gun once but I went through 3 cases of paint and I didn't have one ball chop. I love the Zen board because it's easy to use and you can send it into Azodin and they can put any mode you want on there FREE OF CHARGE! This gun will do about 21 BPS at the most and it's great for the price. I would reccomend this gun to anyone.
So, I've really been able to use this gun. I've had it for about 7 months now. I shoot about a case of paint through it a month more or less. And i've had days at the field where I have fatal problems with the gun and can't play the rest of the day. And then there are days where, no matter what, this gun does not quit and shoots in the toughest, dirtiest conditions.... Last time I was out at the field I went to chrono as usual before the first game and the very first shot my gun did the little Tippmann noise when your out of air and sounds like it's going to explode. I stopped it by holding the bolt and tried again and it didn't happen again till the end of the day. On the very last game my grip frame screws started to come out by themselves and it detatched the trigger and solenoid from the ram and bolt stack making it impossible to shoot. The worst day of paintball I have EVER had. Since then, I took it to the shop and had them check it out.
They found so many problems I couldn't believe it:
1. Solenoid was loose and rolling around on it's own,
2. Set screw and magnet were missing from the trigger.
3. The spring was worn down and very flimsy.
4.Had paint inside both of the eyes from chopped balls (when my gun would do that tippmann thing it would keep shooting and feeding balls and breaking paint proving the eyes dysfunctional)
They fixed it and I haven't laid a hand on anything that is considered adjustable on the marker. The trigger was adjusted to a point where the set screw fell out. I've definitely learned not to touch the setting so much on the gun.
I was also able to get some custom modes put on the stock board using the AZ Editor at my local shop. They put Full auto and PSP 3-shot on there. (Full Auto capped at 25) which I haven't tried yet but and very anxious too!
So, with all honesty I still love the Azodin Blitz but have had so many problems and I pray when I'm out at the field that I don't have any problems. I hate having that feeling and I shouldn't have a fear that my Blitz is going to ruin my day at the field.
I reccomend this marker because it's easy to take a part and put back together and it's inexspensive. If you want a good electrical marker and you want to step away from the mechanical markers then you should get the Azodin Blitz.
I still agree this is an amazing gun for the price and it really is. but with all thes problems i've been having I'm not happy with Azodin and I wish the markers they made were a little better quality and had more upgrades. So I have to give the blitz an 8 for it's roller coaster performance on the field.

I have used the spyder sonix with an upgraded barrel and gravity hopper
I am using the Azodin Blitz currently and have only the stock items on it.
Doesn't chop often
Good barrel (over bored)
Auto Cocker Threads
Not very good battery life in the trigger itself
I just ordered this gun from zephyrpaintball.com and already i am very happy with it. I'm used to my spyder sonix so the first thing i was amazed with was the really sensitive trigger. After using it a couple of times the regulator o rings happened to break. it does come with extras though so it wasn't a problem. Also the eyes started to malfunction and so i called the tech support. They sent me new ones right away with no questions asked. the costumer service is really good and the people that help are very nice.
It has four modes
it has psp ramp 13 bps
millenium ramp 12 bps
Cfoa semi 13 bps
and regular semi 20 bps
It comes with a very nice barrel. it is auto cocker threads which allow for a bunch of upgrades barrel wise. it is over bored which makes it very accurate and constant even when you are shooting dirty paint.
The Feed neck
In the year that i have been playing paintball that thing that annoyed me the most when the crappy plastic feed necks broke on your gun. those things are like 8 dollars a piece at dicks and honestly they suck. with this one you just tighten it up and your good to go. honestly this was one of the main reasons that I even bought the gun.
If you are still deciding on whether or not to buy one i recommend that you do very highly.
Over all this is a very nice gun and i it is a great purchase for the price. Lastly the costumer support is some of the best that i have delt with.
A-5 e-grip with smartparts all American two piece barrel/ Flatline. for woods ball
Azodin Blitz with empire on/ off, crossfire 68/ 4500, Dye Boomstick 12" .689, CP 14 ".685, and invert Reloader 2.
easy board, great eyes. Right price. Nice trigger. Efficient 2000/ 68ci 4500psi. Easy to clean.
Feed neck has to be turned hard.
This gun is excellent, out of the box it fired flawlessly. First day I have fired 2 cases of paint through it without a broken ball.
The Zen board is very user friendly.
Trigger pull is adjustable and as good as, or better than, any high end marker I have played with (Timmy, angel, and shocker).
Extreamly air efficient I have never gotten less than 2000 shots out of a 68ci 4500 psi tank with the Azodin.
Having now fired 20,000+ Balls and still no broken paint. I have never had this kind of good luck before in all my 15 years of paintball.
Easy to clean.
For the money you can’t go wrong. Throw on a CP barrel, or a Boomstick, HPA and you are golden.
I cannot spend as much money on baintball as I did when I was single. I needed a new marker and could only spend $200. So I got this Azodin for $170 online having looked into the mechanics of it, liked what I was hearing and have not had any problems. If you want a marker that will perform well and will not drain your net worth try Azodin Buy it shoot it love it.

I got this gun for X-mas for $190 after tax at my local shop. It takes ION/Impulse neck threads so off the bat i put my old ion's check-it neck on there (i personally just dont like/trust twist-lock feednecks). And The Blitz comes stock with a dovetail, so i put my ions old Check-It on/off on there as well.
I have shot this gun in my backyard, and when to the field twice these last two weeks. I have put about 2 1/2 to 3 cases worth of paint through this gun already and have not had a single break. The eyes work flawlessy, and haven't had any barrel breaks either. This is especially impressive since i have only run CO2 on this gun so far, shooting cheap field paint and 2nds.
(Edit: My brother was shooting yesterday in the backyard while i was away from home, and he says there was a break in the gun, but he thinks it was just paint that broke in the hopper.)
The stock barrel is pretty decent, but could be improved upon. I personally like these type of triggers, but it does feel a little heavy... wish it was milled out more. Good thing about it is that it's 3 way adjustable, so i have it exactly to my liking :) The reg' does whats expected when using CO2, it has almost a 20+/- spread in velocity at the ranges. Have yet to use Compress Air, so i will update when i do.
The gun comes with Semi-Auto, PSP Ramp, CFOA Ramp, and Millenium Ramp. The gun is capped at 20BPS stock, and i dont know of any aftermarket boards for it. It has easy to use controls (two buttons on the spine, skip through 4 colors for four modes). Top one turns gun on, buttom one turns safety on/off. When safety is off, top button turns eye on/off. Hold bottom button to go to shooting modes, then press it to cycle through modes. When you turn off the gun, it saves the last mode you used.
Easy to clean as heck! I hated having to take apart my ION, and dealing with the air hoses to clean it out. This is just like most Spyders and Open-Bolt, Top Cocking markers. Pull top-pin to slide out the Delrin Bolt, unscrew velocity adjustor with A-Wrench until adjustor cap starts unscrewing (you can then hand loosen this until internals slide out, they do have tension though due to velocity spring). Slide out the internals, clean everything off, lube striker o-ring and replace.
Pretty good gun overall, good gun for under $200... runs both of CO2/HPA. Easy to clean and maintain (which i love), decently fast gun (not many walk-ons shoot faster than 20BPS, or need to). Only things i say need changing are barrel, drop or on-off, reg' if you want to, and feedneck if you want to.
Overall good gun.
