First let me say that Angel is one of the best companies ever in paintball. All they have done to contribute to the sport can never be questioned. With that said I have been an angle owner/user since 04 I have owned a dozen angels. While some of the horror stories you hear are true, one thing you dont hear is how great of a community us angel owners have! You can get any problem solved by a few searches. Parts are easily available and this gun is THE SIMPLEST gun to maintain! This gun is beautiful fast reliable and now with the prices it is so cheap I bough 2. I can talk about it all day, but just shoot one yourself and see why us angel owners love it so much.

Having owned an 03 Angel Speed, G7 90 degree frame, and Angel A1 I decided to get a Used Rasta non-lasered Edition Fly as I've always liked Angels.

Specs: Stock board, Booster 2, D-lite stem, ST:Ram, Small bore Angel barrel kit.

The Fly shoots fast, smooth, is light, and I had no problems balling in an Xball tourney without the PSP 3 shot. Great marker all around. Sure the learning curve can be high for some on understanding the platform and it does lack somethings like a servicable ram and external lpr...but most people need to really understand how a marker works in order to adjust the lpr or service a ram anyways. Sure it's considered "outdated" by others but ask them why and chances are most of them won't be able to explain why they think that. I do recommend making sure you find a lower bore than the barrel kit it comes with, keep an extra set of metric allen keys, use good batteries, read your manual and stickies in the forum and don't "explore" or "mess" with your Angel if you don't have too. D-lite and ST:Ram are good upgrades besides the barrel. Some people want a PSP 3 shot...so if you really need that...get a Mojo Board...which appears to be a really nice board. APS is no longer in operation but Fix My Angel can service your Angel if you need it to be serviced.

I have owned Angels since the late 1990's and have always had a soft spot for them. I was not a fan of the Angel A1 when it first came out due to the reliability and quality control issues. This was all addressed with the introduction of the Angel A1 Fly and A1 Fly SE. The A1 Fly SE, with all the latest upgrades, is an amazing marker. It is light, fast, easy on paint, and I have never had it go down in the field. Only issue is that no local shop carries parts or upgrades. Also, with the closing of Angel Paintball Sports, I assume spare parts will become rare over time.

Angels get a bad wrap for one major reason, and that is they are overall difficult to disassemble/reassemble quickly and easily. What people don't tell you is that you never really need to do that! Maintenance is as easy as a drop or two of LoveJuice into the ASA and that's it! Taking out the ram to grease it up also is relatively easy but only needs it every 30k shots, maybe at most.

This gun was one of the smoothest, quietest, and efficient markers I've ever owned. The magnet return poppet valve is amazing compared to springs!
