great marker, super easy to maintain, and always easy to fix if something does go wrong. Very reliable and I've had nothing but great customer service from smart parts when I needed their help. If you get one you won't be dissapointed.

so long as it goes 12Bps or so it will. If you get a blackheart board though and up the rate of fire it might not. If you need a new one I highly suggest looking at Ricochet. Inexpensive and work great.

Your reloader will do just fine.

Ricochet has gone out of business but alot of places still have them in stock and marked down. Alot of people like them, I bought one for my sons SP-1 and the feednack cracked and began to crumble apart to the point where it is no longer usable. so I can't recommend them personally, but that's just my experience with them.

if you want one try here http://www.adiomsports.com/ProductDe...tCode=AS-11410

When I bought mine I got it off ebay, but it was through either action village or ans, don't remember who's. Personally, I have had no issues when using any of their hoppers, and two people I play with also use them. None of us have had any problems with them, that isn't to say you won't, but for the price, the one got can't be beat.

I've played with a few markers in the same price range as the SP1, and for the performance the SP1 delivers, it beats the crap out of the other markers in that price range.

I got mine a month ago and never had any relations with Smart Parts at all. Now I am a proud owner of an SP1 and have complete confidence in my marker when on the field. Definitely a great buy - you will not be dissapointed!

I've had problems with my Ricochet apache not keeping up with my totally stock Sp1. Which is fine most of the time because of the antichop bolt, but with really brittle paint it still will chop. Get a reloader B and you'll never have any issues. IMO

I've run high end brittle paint in cold temps with a gravity feed hopper and no chops.

You will never regret getting a nice hopper. It will likely save you money in the long run to. A Reloader or Halo B would be great choices. They are a little overkill for a stock sp1, but if you ever upgrade to the blackheart board you would set. I say the best anti-chop system is having a hopper that is faster then your marker.

There's a Halo on top of my SP1, and it fires each and every time. Sure, it's overkill... but there's always a ball in the chamber

My sons SP-1 now has a VL jr on it since the Ricochet bit the dust, I wish I would have bought it to begin with.

Buy a Viewloader Revolution with X Board - the batteries will last forever and it's rated at around 12bps. The SP1 is rated at 11bps. So - you get a cheap, reliable, long lasting product. Plus, it's a lot cheaper than Halo's and shiz, and it will last longer!

For me it SP-1 Revy X-board yes. I bought a used HALO B without a scratch, yesterday.
It is not possible to compare it.
Price: new Revy = used HALO B (European prices)

(Sorry for my bad english!)

Skip the X-board. I had one, it did not keep up.
