$189 does seem kinda expensive but take a look at it VS. the freak

Orbium ($189)
12, 14, and 17 inch tips included
bore kit
case

Freak (Total $245-270)
12, 14, 16 inch fronts at $40 a piece ($120)
Back ($50)
bore kit ($75 aluminum or $100stainless)

i got mine through SM1's website.. they called me the next day and let me do a black/silver color combo at no extra cost..

Appearance: the ports on this thing look so cool and the anodizing is top notch

Performance: well let me start off by saying i've shot numerous "high end" kits and this thing beats the best of them

Reliability: the barrel is very strong... it also comes with an tool for tightening the bores down (not needed) for those times you really want to crank the bores down to make sure they don't come off.

Value: look up^^^

I got my kit off from ebay about 4 years ago. Came with 12, 14 and 16 inch tips. A hub and 4 backs with o-rings. It was the Graphite finish, very slick looking. Nice carrying case. It preforms great as advertised. Usually ball on ball depending on paint. Self cleaning, if you break a ball in the barrel you just keep shooting , after about 4 balls its good to go. Very light for an aluminum barrel. I would say stronger than fiber, but im not an engineer. I have used Sly , Deadly Wind, Dye UL , REDZ, EVIL...this is one of the top kits. Price is very high. If you dont have the money get a DW. Customer service is hard to get ahold of, but when you do (helps if your bilingual). They follow thru on what they promise. Good Luck

SM-1 Paintball (Sanchez Machine) Orbium 3 Probably the nicest machining ever. Would be nice if you could order parts seperately.
