I got my vapor in on a trade and I was shocked when I played with it the following wkn. I really domt see how it still has a bad rep mine was a v3 with pooty bolt and it shot so smooth and quiet and accurate as well. It kinda felt like my luxe with a defferent shape. I had no problems with it n the few months ive had it and my only real complaints about the marker its self is the lack of ability to adjust the trigger to the exact way I wamt it but with everythimg psp I guess it really doesmt matter and the second thing Im not too fond of is its case mine was hard to open and the plastic clips for barrell break easly. Those r my only complaints about it I really feel it doesmt deserve it bad rep u honestly have to play with this marker to see what im tlkn about. This IS an amazing machine! Good job

Hey Nation,
I use the vapors as a PSP/NPPL divisional player, and the Vapor is my workhorse. I can bring 13 pods and my hopper on the field with a 4000k 68ci fill and know I can shoot every last ball. Typically the Vapor is so accurate I hit a pack, or hopper tip so the game doesn't even get that far. I am a member of the Palm Beach Viper organization and the Machine support has been outstanding. you will not be disappointed with the price you pay.


ALSO, try the hopper with the gun when it comes out

Got an amazing deal on an almost new vapor and used it for a few practices and one MSXL race event. I must say that this is a great shooter.

Good: Soft shot, reliable, accurate, quiet. I loved the milling and anno work. Everything is top notch, and should be for a gun of this price. You get a very nice barrel kit and two triggers. As long as you know how to complete routine maintenance (like any other spool) the Vapor will be 100% reliable.

My problems with it: May have just been my vapor, but it didn't like the brittle tourney grade paint. I had problems with paint breaking in the gun on a few occasions, when others were shooting it fine. It wasn't just my Vapor either, there were a few with this problem. For a gun of this price I would expect it to shoot the super brittle stuff well. Ultimately this is why I got rid of it.

Another thing about the Vapor that I didn't personally like was the number of different settings on the board. It felt like many of the settings shouldn't be touched and could have been left off the board. However, I understand some people like that amount of customization, and this doesn't effect my rating of the gun in any way.

Overall the Vapor is a very nice paintball marker. I enjoyed shooting it and think that machine has a top notch product. They have spared no expense. That being said, I believe the MAP for this marker is a little high, even with the barrel kit and two triggers. If my marker liked tourney grade paint I would still be shooting it. It may be that the gun is new and all the kinks haven't been worked out yet. Perhaps Machine (or Promod) will come up with some killer settings that will solve this problem. If so I may get another Vapor in the future.

I'm not going to go into to much detail about this, its a grade A+ marker. Super easy to clean, has never chopped a ball for me, and it has never broke. Great Marker. I've even gotten two friends to switch from using Geo and an Ego over to the vapor platform. Still waiting on that hopper tho.

I love this gun, but thats not say there aren't improvements to be made.

Pros:
Smooth
Simple operation
Fairly efficient (for a spoolie)
Super low feedneck
Comes with barrel kit
Straight sex

Cons:
Just about no extras in case (tiny dab of lube, some crummy allens, and a tiny spares kit)
Grips could be better
Comes with like a .697 (come on now)
Doesn't come with manual for gun or board

In my opinion the pros shadow the cons and I love brings this gun out for the past few weekends. Should come with some extras and better grips, may sound nit picky, but this gun is $1650...

Machine Paintball Vapor Ape boards have very deep menus for altering settings. It can be confusing at first. But once I figured that out and how to tune it properly, this gun shoots amazing.
