Most likely the wholesale price stayed the same; Tippmann is just lowering their strictly controlled retail price, so the dealers will trade a higher mark-up for higher volume.

I played with one at TWC when we GLR were demoing them for Tippmann during the lunch breaks. I'm not much of one for speedball or spaceguns, but I liked it so much I bought one.

i don't own one but i have shot one there are a few at my field and they seem to shoot pretty well.. much better than the a5 and 98 as far as shot quality
i agree with the plastic sp for a cheap shooter.. i just picked up an ion for $60 with an in hydro 68/45 for a year and an eggy 3 with an nxe 3 + 4 pack too

I have played a few games with one (it was a loaner) it is a pretty sweet package, It was not really my style but I did not have any complaints about it.

At the new price I would consider picking one up as a backup to keep in the gear bag for those days when I am looking for something different to play with.

I have one. Actually a pretty nice marker, once you mod the trigger. I wouldn't use it as a strictly electro shooter, but the option is nice. Really, its the closest thing to a modern EE-Mag...

My friend owns one, bought it for her, and $350 is right around where I would have been willing to pay for it when I bought it.

I shot it, liked it a lot, but would have liked more trigger time to really render judgement.

She loved it, but only played with it a couple times before she got shipped off to basic.

We have one in the shop and have sold 3 locally. I test fired it only to find out the trigger is incredibly stiff, but since it was a store gun, adjusting the trigger wasn't an option. The reason behind the price drop is to target the Mini and Rail buyers.

The only problem I have with mine for the most part is the board constantly draws from the battery. And the goofy F-in programming they have on the stock board...
