The porting looks awful. I like the idea of the carbon wrapped backs though.

They look good. I could see a green one for my VCOM if they came with smaller backs.

At the price point their guns come out with they may be assuming most of their customers are beginner/budget ballers and shooting bad paint.

This has been needed for some time, surprised it was azodin there first, hope they sell well and release smaller backs soon.

They look great! Packaging looks great too, but agreed on needing a smaller/ different bore size. Lots of guns come with decent 689ish barrels eliminating the need to really upgrade in my opinion . Good for Azodin nonetheless.

But it needs said. They're ruining any chance they had of people buying these because the bore sizes are simply too big to be of any use.

These are amazing looking but like everyone has said the bote sizes are way to big. Drop the bores down and you got a winner Azodin.

I underbored with a 688 this year. Though, it seems to me the entire purpose of two piece designs is a useful range of bore sizes. I'm curious if the single pieces are straight bore or two steppe like the eerily similar colored mambas Stiffi cranked out for sometime.

needs a freak back version to make up for the lack of bores. im sold on the kit but not buying till more sizes are available or a freak variant comes out

also 16" tip..... .....id love an 18 but probably wont see that till way later, but a 16 is needed if these are going to catch on

CF wrapped aluminum barrel vs stainless steel aluminum barrel, hmmm..... You have something going, but i agree with others.. lack of bore sizing right now why some will just glance at it.

Once I get my cash and a dealer figured out I'm going to be ordering 3 (over time anyway). If they were in Ion/Impulse threading I'd be ordering 5.

Usually I have to run my .684 or .682 backs to ensure i dont get roll outs with my pump.

So yes if you are overboring .687 isnt a terrible size. But the lack of more/smaller bores will keep many players reacking for their freak kits.

Deffo need smaller bores.

UK Paint often rolls through a .680. Heck, had some run through a .675!

Another vote for smaller bores. I wouldn't even try a .684 with my pumps and 'Cockers. WAY too big. I get rollouts with a .682, no matter what paint I buy. I'm not sure why companies are still making barrels in the >.684 range...

the heck of it. It's been so humid that paint gets swollen, often.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
