I agree with Bandit and MurderFX, I think the gun is sick and if you consider the following:

Price ------------------ MSRP $389.00
Ability------------------ Big improvements over previous Epiph with bolt out back
Company support ---- Great support

Smart part is a good buy..

lol, kinda figured as much just finished playing a day of woodsball with my buddys man that thing shoots straight and on target, it could certainly do well with inserts, shot damn near a case of paint today was filling pretty regular as my scuba fill station was only filling to 2k at the start of the day and to 1 at the end. no broken paint at all, this gun is a dreak to shoot, maybe a little kicky. but nothing a lighter bolt wont fix, i'm thinking the hollypoint bolt as its only 7 grams or somthing stupid, curious on further specifcs of how that bolt works though seems to be a 2 peice?

A little kick? Turn your valve dwell down to 35. That is where my epiphanies run at. Our bolt is a 2 piece and 44% lighter than a stock ion bolt.

the deadly wind bolt wont work in the EOS due to the inserts, you could modify them i think to work but its not worth it. Also, i think the back cap doesnt have the ability to fit the screw that is required to go into the bolt stalk. I would recommend a NDZ bolt which is great value and very light, and at the moment only $16, though im unsure if the double tail oring would work with the rear cap on the EOS

Yes, but lowering the dwell will help out on the click. The stock board is at 52. So you can go backwards 17 clicks.

Lowering the dwell also increases efficiency, but lowers velocity if I remember correctly. It goes the opposite for adding dwell.

It will increase efficiency... but it will lower velocity if you go too low on the dwell.

Don't repeat my posts!

Thats why you turn the input pressures up. Just don't do it too much or you'll lose efficiency. It's all just a big annoying ring of efficiency vs velocity vs dwell settings vs parts.

yea, i'm new to the whole electro pneu markers. i have already messed with the dwell and rof settings which is why i asked about from bottom. as i did not count how many clicks i was shoot just did what the manual siad of turn down then adjust up till full volume shot and then add 15 to 20 more clicks

oh and sean, my comment regarding kick is just from me being a sailing instructor i always hve to find one thing to complain about even if it is a small amount.

They are not titanium plated. Matter of fact, I do not think you can even do titanium plating. I know titanium can be anodized, but the color does not take very well.

If I had money I would have picked up the one at the store here. It fits my hand perfectly, the trigger was a bit stiff stock, but I think if you adjust some it work feel great. Its heavier than I expected, but not like that bothers me, I have two Impulses. The freak coming with it, I see as a great bonus. Without a doubt, the EOS is a better deal than a Shocker new. And sexier.

in regards to the flaking of the coating, the body of my EOS is not perfect but the blemishes and defects are so minute i have to polish the body with a microfiber cloth to even begin to see the small 1/16 th of an inch area that has a small flake missing from the coating big deal your gonna bash it / scratch it anyways if you play hard. so quit complaining about small cosmetic issues. imo just a waste of energy spending the time to type that stuff lol

i have ZERO issue with the small fleck of coating thats is missing i can;t see it unless i hold it up to the light at the correct angle and look closely. its a non-issue seems like the guy who was complainging about it just wants to start ****. again for me its a non issue i play hard i dive into bunkers i'm gonna scratch my gun eventually who cares if there is a little blemish on the finish,
