Pros: Doesn't need tuning, quiet, smooth, efficient
Cons: Eyes are iffy, needs 4c eyes when u buy it
The Insight has been the very first brand new gun I've had in a good minute because I'm always trading around and trying new guns. That being said, I have shot just about every gun there is out right now in the high end sector.

This gun just blows me away. The body is sharp and expertly milled down giving the gun both amazing style and just a ridiculously light weight. 1 lb 11oz?! I mean what beats that? And the ergonomics of a g6r..ahhh it's just lovely.

The shot on this gun is also worth talking about. I would have to describe it as a cross between a DM and a g6r in that it doesn't feel very much like it's shooting at 300fps and more like it's just flicking the balls out there but it just does it so much more elegantly than that. The balls don't so much float out there but they sort of just zip out there one behind the other.

The engine and the single Hpr reg are both really simple to maintain and mostly foolproof. The only hiccup I have yet to experience with this gun is the eyes not wanting to read paint.

Sometimes it would read paint just fine and other times it would need a forced shot to get a stream going, not something you want in snake corner..but with a quick look through the advice of tim2thousand4 and his insight troubleshooting thread I was right back out there with a flawless shooting gun. It's like what dye wished the NT could be but about 5x prettier and lighter.

Overall this gun has been great so far! Shoots smooth like a DM with enough feedback to let u know you're shooting people. Plus 13 pods off a 68/45 without breaking it in even? Yea I'm keeping this gun! Go get one!

Pros: Light, Macroless
Cons: Factory only orings, lp only, trigger bounce
I purchased an insight and received it from the factory with a solenoid leak. I ended up having to send it back because the orings on the manifold are factory only. I thought this was kind of ridiculous on a BRAND NEW gun. Bob took care of me and I received it shooting good. The marker shoots well and cycles very fast (the fastest of any marker I believe). It is also extremely light and the board that comes with it is top notch. It's nice how compares to other markers made by Bob, the insight DOES NOT require Dow 55.


Now for the cons. I don't like how the marker uses factory only o-rings on certain parts. I also know that acquiring a low pressure is a hassle for some people who don't have a ninja pro reg. Also, Bob Long markers seem pretty prone to trigger bounce and it's an annoying fix because the trigger isn't the easiest to take out.

looks amazing
easy on paint

Bob has his S*** down!!

Cons:
a bit snappy of a shot, even after they are broken in well
odd orings, and lots of them. could be a headache if things were to wear too much.

Overall I think it is one of your best bang for buck guns right now, especially with the prices I've been seeing them go for right before WC 13'

Pros: light, good looking, shoots amazing
Cons: eats a ton of lube
The Insight is hands down one of the best guns I have ever had the privilege of owning. It has a very aggressive milling and looks amazing. It is super light and is the most efficient spool on the market at this time. There is very little kick and you can easily hold lanes with one hand. The only negative thing I can think of is that you can't really shoot more than 2 cases between lubing the engine. It just plain eats a ton of lube. Lucky maintenance is very easy and it's a simple job to relube the engine assembly. Probably the best value in paintball and being made from BLAST, they are made in the USA

Pros: Weight, efficiency, shot quality
Cons: Resale, if that even counts
I just recently traded my backup Luxe to try out and Insight and I will say this upfront, NO REGRETS. The insight is a great looking gun that shoots smooth as hell and is extremely easy to maintain. If I had to pick out one thing that I dislike it would be the ergonomics of the trigger but that is subjective so it should be left out of an objective review. This marker is glorious. It shoots so smooth that I find myself being much more accurate during long streams of shooting. This is by far the most efficient spool marker I have ever shot.

TLDR Great marker, efficient, smooth, easy to maintain. Low resale value and I, personally, don't like the trigger very much.

Since I've purchased my Insight I've had nothing but problems.

Cons: First, I was getting MAD trigger bounce. Had to take out the trigger spring and stretch it. Problem fixed.

Second, when I got it it never had the newest board flash. Can you say chop paint much? Problem fixed.

Now that I have all these things fixed it works flawlessly, but I do have a sour taste in my mouth about it a little still.

Pros: Looks amazing, very light, easy to maintain, very fast, efficient.
