Going to pick this up on Thursday or Saturday at my shop, I have my eyes set on a Hybrid Fusion or maybe a LE once I get my tax return and next few paychecks.

Man, try and be nice and let people know about something cool and you get blasted for it!!

They tested several different markers to better judge the performance using several different air systems, barrels and loaders. Unfortunately they dont really go into how it performs with each.

Air:
Centerflag 420 and 420SV LP
Dye Throttle
Guerilla Air FUKU HP

Barrels:
Stiffi
CP One Piece
Sly CF
Freak
(Note they didnt use the stock)

Loaders:
Pulse
Reloader B
Vlocity


They stated that out of the box it has a hefty solid feel to it. They say how it resembles a Cyborg only its smaller and size wise its its closer to a 07 Ego or an Angel One.

They liked the small size and the simple clean milling. They noted that the dust anno on there four test markers was flawless. They also state how easy it is to clean and maintain and give a quick how to.

They talk about how the small size makes it easy to work a bunker and the accuracy was more than adequate. They talk about how there is noticeable kick, but the Fusion has enough weight to it that once you get used to the cycle it doesnt make the Fusion any harder to use.

They calle dthe consintancy "nothing short of spectacular" they note the best chrono they had was a string of shots all at 296 and the worst was a +/- 6 fps using low end Draxxus Rec Sport.

Last paragraph verbatum:
"While the Dangerous Power Fusion isn't as refined as markers like the WDP Angel One, the new Eclipse EGO, or the various spool valve offerings from DYE and Smart Parts, it does offer a massive bang for the buck. The Fusion's price varies from $375 to $450, depending on what model you choose. The aftermarket appears to be embracing the Fusion as well, with Hybrid Technologies, Virtue and Scenario Dreams all making products for the Fusion. Despite the inexpensive price tag, the Fusion is far from cheap; performing nearly as well as markers costing triple the price."

Then they tell you to check out DP's website for more info.

Now back to work! Hopefully this will appease the masses until I can get pics for proof!

you know what was really cool, i was actually at the field where they were reviwing the marker. it was the head captain of team 68 downaround tampa, FL. it was at break50 paintball. the guy was really cool, i almost bunkered him as well, but that gun is very quick. the gun shot incredibly well and he let me shoot it a few times and i thought it was wonderful as well. just wanted to share my personal experience...so glad i went that day.

Yeah, the reviews made by 68 are often used by PB2X. We are also contributing writers for PB2X.
