Awesome gun. The ultralight frame is super comfortable in the hands and the tool-less grips save a lot of time and worrying about losing screws. Its the smoothest shooting marker I've used and its really quite and accurate.

The Dm12is amazing in my eyes. People complain its not small enough, but you must remember its one of the few spool valves to use a low pressure regulator which lets you fine tune this marker so well. The new looks in my opinion looks the best out of previous models and the new grips and reg grips make it so comfy in the hands! Along with being air efficient it just shoots great

I'm new to the DM line of markers so the DM12 is my first, and I havn't had much time using it honestly. From the bit I have used it I've been very pleased with how it performs. I was iffy purchasing this at first as I'm used to PE markers. But the plan is to use the DM12 for the whole 2014 season and then make a more elaborate review and decision on my next marker purchase. More to follow.

My wife bought this marker for me on our honeymoon. (Yes she is awesome).
I have not owned a high end marker since the Angel Speed Demon came out, as I have recently gotten back into the sport. WOW technology has come a long way. The ball goes where you want it to every time, I have run graffiti, resurrection, evil, marbles, you name it. I have broken a ball once! The feel and comfort of this marker in your hands is second to none. Using the software is easy and well explained in the color user manual.
Cons,
This marker is not as forgiving as some high end (EGO) and almost all lower end markers where at the end of the day, it can be covered in paint you can through it in a gear bag and forget about it until the next time you are at the field. This marker should be somewhat broken down after each use and cleaned. You take good care of this marker and it will take good care of you. I suggest having a eye pipe replacement in your spare parts box in your gear bag at the field as well. The plastic is quite brittle and cold temps can encourage a crack.
Pros,
Put three cases through this marker and the inline reg is broken in. I have a -+ diff of about six FPS. The pneumatic's in the marker unparalleled.

Pros: quick access bolt, ul frame 2
Cons: useless windows just collect dirt, eye pipe
Pros:
Great ergonomics with the ul frame 2 and red cover and front pad.
Smooth shooter, very light recoil even when not broken in thanks to the lpr
Ul barrel and clamping feed neck standard.
I personally don't mind the board.
Quick access not can be unscrewed by hand (be aware if you torque it with an allen you won't able to unscrew it by hand.)

Cons:
The windows on the body serve no purpose other than to collect dirt debris and add 2 orings to the bolt system.
Eye pipe is a constant worry. You WILL break it eventually. The gun never chops anyway and the barrel can crack it. Pure and simple it's a gimmick and the gun can't work without one. Once dye stops making eye pipes (no idea when but they eventually will) all the funds that use them will become useless since they eventually break.
