Here are some pictures of it...




This is what the people at Warped Sportz have recently said: http://www.warpedsportz.com/warped/News/news.htm
We understand there is a lot of conjecture about the specs for Rocky Cagnoni’s custom marker. We would like to clarify a few things, if we could;
-the markers available at Mardi Gras were prototypes, meaning changes have already been made.
-here are the features that Rocky’s gun will carry:
1-exclusivity: only ten will be produced per month
2-special anodizing: no solid colors, only fades and / or patterns
3-the LCD read out will show ROC, instead of live.
4-it will feature the Elements trigger
5-it will come with our special Dark Series front player’s barrel kit (that means SEVEN different
barrels)…. It will be designed with the front player in mind, and come with one 10 inch and one 12
inch short barrel tip, with three different control bore backs ranging from small bore to large plus the
stock Infinity 12 inch barrel.
6-new Rocky site rail
7-each marker will be set up and gone through by Rocky himself, and offer a certificate of
authenticity that the One and only Rocky Cag has tested the gun himself.

We hope this helps people understand what is coming with Rock’s gun, and why it carries the price tag that it will. We would NEVER put out an inferior custom marker, or one that simply is not that unique, and ask a higher price tag simply for attaching Rocky’s name to it.

Hope this helps clear the air,

It's too bad the milling's kinda weak. I really thought it would look alot better. Oh well it's alright though.

I'm sorry, maybe it's just me, but for the money, it seems as if you could get a lot more gun going with something else. I know it wouldn't have a certificate, maybe not tuned by Rocky, but so far, it sure hasn't impressed me. Oh well, just my 2 cents.

I think what people were looking for was a much more extravagent gun that was flashy and would stand out from the crowd. But instead what they got was a 'down to earth' gun with a little extra here and there, which isn't all that bad since I recall seeing most Pro Players with guns that were all about performance and not so much about looks. If I recall, the SC Ironmen used 96 cockers for quite some time, but were fully upgraded internally and provided for great performance. That's my opinion at least.

digital: he must have a little extra time on his hands because the last two times I've called WS-FL I've talked to him personally.

Yeah but what you're forgetting is that you can't really upgrade an angel all that much internally for performance. So that's why custom angel's are almost always just for looks. And that's what most people thought Rocky's angel would have. I mean to have an aftermarket angel with blah looks is kind of pointless. The only thing it has going for it is that it's probably going to be rare. And yeah Avram it does seem like he's a red wings fan hehehe.

Too much.. IMHO I thyink the C & C Angels are the best looking and there alot cheaper.. Even though you do get some extra barrels I still don't see it as being that great.. I like the milling up front but they should have shaved more off the back block.. I'll keep the Dark and the C & C as my two candidates if I ever go for a custum marker..

the milling wasn't what i had expected, but the stuff that it also comes with, makes up for that i guess. the only thing i like of that milling, is the front part, w/ the squigly lines. Also, is that a cross milled on the front of the gun?

I agree with Timebomb. I think people were looking for something more flashy. I know I was. It just seems to boring, just alittle milling here and there. I think they should of added like an anti-chop eye or something else big like that. Owell, still is cool and I bet real fast.

Since the number of guns being produced per month is limited...I bet Rocky would be able to handle it.

Well maybe one with better anodizing would be more appealing to you goldfish. Personally...I don't think it's that bad, but I do not think the price is reasonable.
