Umm. Dunno about that one. LOL!
Some people will no doubt prefer to shoot other brand markers (and that is good for the industry), and many will really, really like the J12. The functionality of the marker is what you will notice. The marker is extremely durable, does not need any timing adjustments (even after tear down) and from what others have confirmed, "It shoots really flat." I think people have waited long enough. Wouldn't be surprised if the announcement is soon of the J12's impending release.
