I used one VERY briefly when a friend was working for NPS and had access to all sorts of "field testing" gear.

Not my normal style, but overall I definately liked it. Good quality overall, seemed to perform nicely enough. Could definately throw off your paint budget though!

Are you talking about a Freestyle? Beacuse unfortunatly although Zap has released photos of a Freestyle clone, the product is apperantly a STBB clone.

Update

Well it came into today:

sorry for the terrible pic, I was in a hurry.
No big loss, as it is probably going to my nephew.
I didnt have much time to thoroughly check it out, but it seemd okay. The one thing that stood out that I did not like was the grips. They are hard plastic.
I sent an email to the seller, to see what he has to say about it.

That looks about identical to the Black Draguns that were going new for $35 about a 2 years ago on ebay.

The original auction stated, for example, that it had a 'no drop like the pros use', which itself is a blatent mis-representation of what you have there (looks like a 'yes drop' to me), not to mention the picture.

I'd say you have some recourse if you wanted to take the issue up w/ ebay.

That doesn't resemble the picture in the auction, or the description.....

Good luck,

The seller said that he would correct the problem, and I have not heard from him since. I will give him a few days before I take any further action.
