Autocockers can be faster than anything on the field. Accuracy depends on the paint/barrel match. I'd look into a FF too...

Cant really tell you what to buy, but FF's are nice...and If you get a Racegun they can really lay down paint. I love my 2k1 Shocktech - I'd look into the SFL's, they have very reliable well performing parts.

Freeflow. Best bang for the buck, awsome warrenty to.
Stay away from shocktech
Evo X is another choice
Outcast is cheap but awsome
Orracle is awsome
Stay away from dye
ANS cockers are good


x5? They jusr released their x4 a little while ago

FreeFlow, or Evolution X -

both GREAT guns, but FF has a lifetime warranty, and costs less.

both guns are FAST, and as accurate as any -

That Guy that has your shocktech now AMZ is me. You need to learn to tune a cocker because when I got it it was so out of time I could of crapped a Paintball farther. The sear lug was set too far in, and the Cocking rod was almost 1/2" Too short and there wasnt a Coupling rod Setscrew - I tuned it back to Suction timing and now its shooting perfect The only thing I need now is a Chrome Eclipse Hinge

I like most of Shocktech's components and guns, but I HATE their bolt.

Once you get into the high end market of Cockers they are all going to be good. For the most part the performance will be comparable. Find one you like the looks of. Personally I have a works. They have more than what is shown on their site. Call up and Marty can send you pictures or just look through the picture thread.

Weeeeeee!

If you want speed I would spring for a raced Freeflow... like everyone else says, the warranty is amazing, and the components are top-notch.

Freeflows rule.

Touchet..

You make some good points, Arguing would be a moot point because...yeah well your right. I love the FGP reg, I love the slider Frame - and STO ram is always good(stock) but I'd like to see a besales HP Bullet 4-way on there...that would be a good addition.
