the diadem flat out shoots ropes! I bought mine stock, minus the barrel, lpr, grips, etc.... and bought my ups as I wanted it. -I've gone numerous days of play without paint breaks. (no need for a squeegie on the field!)
I have no lpr, just a good reg (evil detonator) however the dwell is widely adjustable so kick is barely noticible... throw an lpr on there and I'm sure you'll find a combination to your particular tastes.
Bubble grip is a bit to get used to, but it's there for a reason; and comfortable as hell -tho the dye stickies may have something to do with it
my only real complaint about the diadem is it's trigger, it's got a little too much play side to side, so it dosen't feel like the highend markers out there. (lack of ball bearings and magnetic return... something I plan on modding the dits trigger as soon as I start playing more often)
-the trigger adjustment screws for front and back play is precise and accurate, however AM had an issue with their design, and if your diadem dosen't have their (AM's) trigger plate installed, I'd highly recommend making something similar to avoid any adjustment issues... (it works fine without, but you gotta be more delicate.)
(the adjustment screws hit the body right at the edge of the body & valve screw on the underside of the reciever.)
sall for now - any other questions?
fanboy or not...I love my dits as it'll keep up with some of the best tourny markers out.
