Shot a vx for a season, played several events with it. Very smooth marker right off the bat. After a few cases I was getting +/- 2 over thw chrono with a .685 insert in the stock barrel. Had no issues with the marker, shot flawlessly. I was a big fan of the vp trigger over stock but otherwise wpuldnt change a thing.

Well I've been using the Clone VX for about 4 months now and I can say it's one of the best markers i've had the pleasure of playing with. It's smooth, quiet and deadly accurate.


Packaging-Great clam shell case, allen keys, lube, manual and sock

Board-so easy to program, and so many firing modes

Barrel-shift kit is great, for an extra $100 you get a full bore kit, works like a freak kit but better

Trigger-not that great but not horrible, worth spending $40 for a VP trigger

Asa-okay it makes some noise while being engaged but it's idiot proof and solid. I will say this that the dove tail that it connects too is a little loose on tolerances and I had to add a shim between the Asa and the dove tail to get better fit.

Regulator-one of the best on the market, up there with the SL3 and Hyper 3. Easy to maintain and very consistent.

Drive train/Bolt-while more complicated than most other spools out there it's easy enough to figure out. Maintenance is pretty simple, light lube every 5 cases!!!

Eyes-comes stock with laser eyes, work great, no chopping issues of course

Grips-about the only real issue I've noticed with this marker. Just does not compare with the big boys like PE and Dye.

Efficiency-once broken in the my marker got me 9 pods plus my rotor. Really good for spoolie, with an operating pressure of 90-100 psi it's no wonder this thing is so good.


I got this wholesale as I work for a field but I would recommend this marker without any hesitation. I own an Ego11 and once I got this marker I stopped using it.

MacDev Clone Vx The clone may not be the "sexy" choice but if you're looking for performance look no further. Absolute GEM that not too many people seem to know about.

Pros: NO noticeable kick! SUPER light! LOW profile!

Bought a sweet anno'd clone VX w/ matching Shift kit for a great price.

My NT 10.5 used to be my main gun...within 1 hour of using the VX at the field, the NT was sent back in the case where it will remain forever my backup gun. That's how much I love my VX

I always refer to this post when trying to explain the awesome-ness of the Clone VX - http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3678626

Plain and simple, this gun has literally no visible kick when properly broken in. Like in the thread linked above, it seems like the gun isn't shooting right when you're shooting streams of paint. This gun is simply great.


The only other issue that I can think of, which really isn't an issue is that there is no UL frame or fancy ergonomic frame on the gun! No worries though because after 1 or 2 games I was used to the grips and frame on the VX The milling is also not as curvy as an NT or Geo but this gun literally takes care of business!



It's worth your time and money, buy it

In the few months Ive had this gun I've found its incredibly smooth and quiet, it litteraly does not sound or feel like its shooting at 280ish FPS but it is. The stock trigger I find very easy to walk and hit high rates of fire with. The stock OLED board is great it does everything a virtue or tadao board does. Its increadibly efficient which you cant realy say about alot of spool valve markers. The stock feedneck is realy nice and clamps tight. The grip frame to reg spacing makes the clone vx very comfortable in the hands. The asa is realy nice and easy to turn on and off. The shift barrel is realy nice but without the insert kit your pretty much stuck overboring. All in all the clone vx is by far my favorite marker I own

I bought this gun from a sketchy looking eBay account. Got the gun in New condition for 1,000.00 with free shipping. Dust Black.

Pros...
- Like most spool valves this gun shoots incredibly smooth (given you break it in some)
- The reg has a completely tool-less disassembly.
- Via USB you can update your board at any time.
- Macdev's new assemblys fit previous guns. (So I'm not left in the dust when a new assembly/bolt is released)
- With eyes on I've never chopped a single ball (only one or two barrel breaks) in the 6 months I've had the gun.
- Great warranty. I had some eye issues, got free eyes. They work great
- Very lightweight.
- Shoots a tight grouping (not unlike the Luxe)
Cons...
- If you're into cool milling, this gun is pretty standard looking.
- Kinda pricey.....but hey its paintball!
- ASA violently vents air during pressurizing and depressurizing.
- Yes, the valve keg o-rings still get nicked up pretty often.

Summery...
- If your looking to drop some cash on a very high end gun, this is a great choice. I've shot this gun alongside a Luxe, NT, and DM10 and I saw no visible difference in their (tight) grouping (just in the feel). The Clone alongside other High end markers gives you that great ability to put paint right where you want it, with a flawlessly smooth feel. Aside from a slightly annoying ASA, this gun has become my new personal favorite.
