The patent pending Hybrid is a low pressure, closed bolt, pneumatic marker with the list of features like no other gun in its class. Features like a machined timing plate for ultra-fine tuning, compact high end pneumatics, micro honed bolt and hammer chambers, a delrin sleeved stainless steel hammer, delrin bolt with quick pin, a balanced valve and Powerlyte's exclusive internal ram system. This internal system places the ram inside the body connecting it directly to the back block, eliminating the need for a front block and pump rod. Each Hybrid comes standard with an Axis hinge frame and Speedline barrel.

Hope this helps you out.

Thanks,

Matt C.

if you were to get a Hybrid Marker or even the Hybrid body, I am sure that you would be more than pleased with it. You can get a Hybrid body and get an electric frame (e-blade or race frame) and have an electronic marker for under a $1000.00.

Or you can just get the Hybrid with our frame.

Thanks,

im still slightly sketchy as to the rules in tourny play reguarding electric markers.... i heard fully-autos are not allowed and any marker with 3/6 round bursts settings are not allowed as well. isnt that all an e-blade does is offer more fire power? also... if i am wrong about the fully-auto parts please let me know!!!
thanks.

The Elbade is a fully adjustable electronic trigger for the cocker. In it's simplest terms, it's like putting an egrip on a spyder or other gun. This one is just WAY nicer. You do all the cocker timing through the grip, you can set your travel & return distances and with the e-grip, make it impossible to short-stroke.

As far as I know, there is no burst or f/a mode on an Eblade.

The Eblade is semi only. It cannot be altered so that it fires more than one shot per pull.

But it doesn't have a full auto setting like some e-frames do.

Dayspring, The eblade also makes it impossible to short stroke, you can also time it thgrough the grip, yo can set not only the length of the pull but the weight of the pull as well. and if it had full auto, it wouldnt be tournament legal. and full auto is gay.

u cant run full auto or burst in any tourneys but you shouldnt need to in the first place. just shorten the trigger pull a tad bit and practice pulling the trigger, you should get up there in no time. plus the eblade makes it so incredibly easy to fire fast in the first place. all semi-auto btw.
