FS-8
 
Has anyone seen these videos yet? From the looks of it, ICD's newest release looks like it should give the other high end electros a run for their money.

From numbers given, it also seems to have very good efficiency.

would e nice for ICD to get another gun thats embraced by the mainstream, they need a boost it think, they been neglected for to long.

I agree, bushmasters and freestyles were under-rated. But they started to pull themselves back with the promaster, and now wiht the FS-8, I see a beight furure for ICD.

i think the nice, clean design will be it's main selling point unfortunately.. other than that, it's more of a 'me too' contender on the market, as it does everything that others in its class do.

the only way they will grab a decent market share is by doing what Smart Parts did with the Ion, and under cut their competitors in the pricing game.

I havent been on their website in ages, I like the "timeline" on there!

I WISH other mfg's would do something like that!
(just goes to show that modern manufacturers just dont expect any lasting interest in their guns I guess)

seems nice... but its 650 dollars.

mark 04-10-2006 09:03 PM

$650 is pretty cheap compared to other high-end electros

Exactly the price war is too much for them. $650 is a lot when you can buy a used B2K for $100 or even pick up a nice shocker or other "high end" marker used for less than that price. Don't get me wrong, I love ICD but I think they are gonna have to change advertising strategies if they plan on competing with SP, WDP, or Dye. Too many others have tried and failed. The Diadem, the O3 from odessey, the Interceptor from AlienPB, there are others but they were so short lived I cant remember names. The point is if you want to be a contender you have to undersell the big dogs.

(on the bright side it looks nice and light, might have to get one once they start selling on ebay for way too little)

AGD and ICD should team up come out with a super light super fast gun and market it together. That would be sweet!

when I go out with my promaster there are quite a few people who have no clue what marker it is, since there's no logo or name on it. I find that kinda weird. I love ICD stuff (I've got an alley cat and a promaster), but their marketing is terrible, their prices aren't too bad, but I agree that both the promaster and the future freestyles will need to come down in price to grab a piece of the pie.
