Since it's a sub $500 mid-end marker. A whole bunch of people that would not even think about shooting a marker in the class of an axe will now say, "well if XSV is shooting them, I definitely can, and I will save a lot of cash." Than all of the kids that have smaller budgets deciding between markers in that class, like the Spec-R, Etek 3, Invasion, ETC, will now say " XSV shoots the axe, that has to be the best choice." These thoughts aren't neccesarily true, but it's sponsoring a team like XSV is just good marketing and will hype up the marker they are shooting greatly. Empire obviously offered them a hell of an endorsement to shoot those markers.
this is true

Is it just me, but I love all the smart products that are under estimated, not advertised, smartly engineered, and uniquely American. Seems there are passionate American tinkerers that copy, innovate, and just plain get things right, using the same thing others produce in a better way.
Its why I am drawn to the Factory Five GTM, the Alien Indy, Ar-15's, Cannondale, you get the idea.
It does not have to be American, but well thought out use of stuff, sparks my interest. "Pontiac" Holden GTO, Mazdas rotary engine, otto cycle, and direct injection engines, the Av8b Harrier, FNH as well as Glock firearms, etc...
The alien uses a Cp style reg. Something everyone "upgrades" most markers to. Unique closed rammer setup. Aftermarket Tadao standard, no need to have a board made that is already outdated anyway, and going to be replaced, the after market makes a great board, so Jack uses it from the start.
Just little thought out details that make sense. Practical from the start, and the best marker out.
Sorry for the rant...now back to your regularly scheduled lives...
