Joining the Macdev owner ranks for the first time

I used a Clone VX last weekend and really like how it shot. I decided to use it in a tournament yesterday and again it shot magnificent. Now I have pulled the trigger and have my own Clone on the way. Any tips or recommendations for a new Clone owner?

By the way, here is a pic of my soon to be new workhorse:

You have made a wise choice

First off, familiarize yourself with the manual which you can see here:
http://store.macdev.net/SearchResults.asp?Cat=1830

The Clone Info / FAQ thread has a lot of useful information in it:

I would recommend picking up some of the latest Militia Lube which came out recently. Best lube I've used to date. Here is an example of where you can snag some, there are multiple sizes. The large one is the best value and will last you a good while.

I would reset the board to defaults (manual will explain how to do that).

While it will function off of anything from SLP to HP, I would run things on the lower side if you have the option.

Other than that, just go out and play with it, and let us know if you have any questions that come up!

Get an oring kit, some lube. Lube it lightly and shoot it a lot!

Pulled it out of the box for the first time this morning, put my tried and true UL and was ball on ball. Very happy at this point.
