matrix vs. 2k3 bush

i was going to get a matrix cause they are so accurate ,fast , easy to maintain. But i have been hearing great things about the new bushy w/pds (if i got it i would get VAPOR bolt,valve,chip) so why is it better ? i need real reasons to change my mind . does it really come close to matrix speed. how easy is it to get on the trigger or use to. and the accuracy hoe is it

thanks

They both are great Markers, I suggest trying both. I can vouch for the upgrades to the Bushy making the difference. Just got a new chip and frame and it rocks! My teammate just picked up a new trix too. Nice Marker, eats up a lot of gas, but shoots straight and flat like advertized. Both are great markers, but asking this question in a Bushy forum you know who I am going to side with

hmm

Like he said, you're gonna hear more bushy advice in here, but here is what I think :-)

The bushy is lighter and w/ PDS doesn't chop.

The sonic bushy at about the same price as some of the higher end matrixes is the way to go.

Get the sonic bushy w/ PDS. The lpr is easier to adjust and the regs are better.

The matrix is heavier and both guns are very fast. I don't think there is a huge difference in either one. Once you spend 1000 bux on a marker they all perform a lot alike.

lol

dude, to be honest, the all use about the same logic and components. The differences aren't that much.

The timmy is a spyder body w/ a compartementalized ram system. The bushy is a stacked tube rip off of the angel. The impulse is a rip of the bushy.

You adjust the trigger and it shoots great.

I shoot prolly 12 or 14 sometimes because I have outshot my revvy a lot so now I have a halo.

Some guys with matrix's were asking what kinda gun I had this weekend cause it was so fast.

The gun doesn't make the player. You can't go wrong with the timmy, impulse, bushy, matrix, angel, etc.... just take care of it and don't let it near water :-)

If you are going to look at a custom Bushy take a look at the Venom as well (http://www.zenitram-mfg.com/). It has more upgrades then the Shocktech (at a higher price though). Neither come with a barrel but the Venom now has the MacDev Gladiator with it. They are both nice looking markers. Venom also give you options of mid or high rise, blade or curved trigger, 45 or z-grip frame along with those upgraded parts.
If you want to save some money just get a 2K3/PDS and then do you own upgrades as your budget allows. I thought I read they were going to start using cocker threads standard on the newest 2K3's. However the LCD is not a standard option anymore if you want that.
Mine had really bad blowback so I had to get a Vapor bolt but they are only like $30.

Yes the Zentiram products are great I switched out my ripper grip frame for the new Zentiram with Tank's Tantrum ship and Turn my Defiant into a new Marker.

For my last marker I was stuck between a Matrix and a BK3 w/ pds. I bought the Bushy because of the size, pds and price. I think that the Matrix is faster (it is for me). Just shoot both and see which ones fits you and your style of play better. I play front mostly so the size of the bushy is an advantage, but if i played back more I would have probably gone with the matrix. Either way you'll be getting a great gun.
