well, as soon as i saw this article i knew a majority of the people on here would just say "looks like an ion" or "just another electro" not to mention "meh"... and boy was i right!

but honestly, some of you ACTUALLY think this looks like any other marker? are you blind or just ignorant?

Just like I say with any other high-end: there's not much you can do to make a tube (or stacked tube) look all that different from another tube while trying to minimize weight and maximize function. Its why most high-end guns look very similar to each other. The only thing this gun has to differentiate itself is the foregrip/trigger guard combo. Without that it very prominently features styling elements of not only DP guns, but the Matrix (how the front of the grip frame meets the reg/foregrip), and even the GEO somewhat in the the milling of the main body. Yes, it has original elements thrown in but when you get to that level of milling and weight reduction it will tend to look like other guns in its weight class.

Its a case of form following function. Why do you think Formula One cars look so similar to one another?

Interesting choice on the trigger guard/front grip design

Some people get so obsessed with objects they can differentiate the smallest minutia. For some it's muscle cars, others stamps. MCB members are addicted to 'old' markers. They could tell you the difference between a Victory-Z and Mega Z just from a cell phone pic of the valve spring. ..as opposed to those on PBn who might be able to tell you the difference between an DM9 and DM10.

Personally I can barely tell the difference between a Mini and a VM68. So you can imagine what I think this marker looks like.

Feed neck, tube shaped body protruding behind the grip, expensive and unnecessary milling, tank attachment to the base of the grip, pointless front grip, functionless trigger guard, etc. It's an Ion/Threshold/Matrix/Mag/Shocker/Mini/Tippmann?

Actually I think it looks like the Blasar Iota

$10 says it's a spool. Any takers?

Either a spool or an inline poppet.

And the whole what it looks like can be summed up by one word. CHEAP.

If it works fine and is cheap, I might give it a chance. But probably not.
