get it if you like a lil bigger gun but its still small. its quiet fast and the barrrel is good stock. try one out and then make your decision.

Keep in mind you need a new feedneck for sure, and if you play tourneys, a new board.

most local fields are capping at under 15 bps, and im assuming if you are buying an epiphany you wont be playing any D1 PSP or NPPL tournies any time soon...

the gun is a bit heavy, but i picked it up next to an evil minion today, and i couldnt tell much of a difference, not to mention that once you add the tank and hopper, the whole package gets wayyyyy heavier, and a few ounces wont matter so much.


get a QEV, the marker doesnt have great air efficiency, though it is by no means bad. QEV will really really help.

and the stock feedneck works fine with my eggy 2.

i actually broke a button on the board, but i use an allen wrench to tap it now. but that was me being a ******* and not the gun's fault.

the xe is stil an ion. The epiphany is more solid, a little heavier, and shoots smoother. Not to mention the fact that it comes with a freak....

epiphany's are great guns, however like all smart parts markers they need upgrades to shoot amazing. If you just need a gun for messing around then get the epiphany. If you are serious about paintballin than get another gun in the price range, or buy the epiphany and slowly add all the upgrades.

If you decide to do choice number 2, save your money and buy the epiphany in my sig Save ya mad money in the long run

Why Would he not be able to play in any higher level tournies with his epiphany?

Dude its a great gun. It'll do what you need it to, if you feel under gunned its not going to take more then 300 dollars to give you all the performance you want.

somebody was complaining about the lack of ramping modes (the different tournament style modes). iunno, i could find it but im too lazy. that was just in defense of the fact that he probly wont be using it against Chicago Avalanche or Los Angeles Ironment.

i have nothing but good things to say about the epiphany, and im taking it to NCPA tournies this year.
