Crossover...any opinions?

A friend is looking to pick up a Crossover. He likes the idea of the mech and electric options.

Anyone have an opinion on this gun? I know nothing about it.

Edit: I forgot to mention that this would be his first gun.

It's not a bad option. Does the job. It's like an upgraded phenom. I would say look around first but it wouldn't be a bad gun to get.

I think Tinman had one. Might want to hit him up cause I'm sure he'd let you check it out / borrow it for a game or two if he does indeed own one still.

It shoots paintballs. Pretty straight forward marker. Super plain jane and makes me go meh.

The neato function is the mech to electro, similar to the E-mag setup.

Is the electro part truly necessary? I would say go with the eNme or however the hell the thing is spelled.

Trigger is stiff as hell, design is 10 years too late, Imho.

I've only shot a hopper through one. I wasn't really impressed. As mentioned, the trigger is horribly stiff and near impossible to get a decent rate of fire going consistently. For the same money, you can get an Etha. No, it doesn't have the mech option, but it is a damn fine marker for the price.

Ultimate paintball has world cup demo crossovers for $249.95 with free shipping. Mine should be in on the 23rd.

I picked one up yesterday to use at practice with the D5-D3 guy's we have. Trigger need's work, but a bic pen spring cut down is pretty sweet. It' has all the modes you'd ever want and as a mostly pump player, I didn't break the bank for a gun that'll spend most of it's life in the gear bag.

Shot one of these when they were first starting to appear on the market. The trigger was stiff so we removed the trigger spring and replaced it with a lighter pen spring. it allowed for easier walking.

I did like the feel, but with all the other markers that have popped up... I cannot see myself keeping one in my bag.

With the new trigger being announced, I don't see how your friend could go wrong with one. I've been playing for 27 years, and to me, this is the perfect balance of lightweight, durable, and reliable. Win!!!!
