Borg kick?

How is the kick with the Cyborg? Would you compare it to a trix (absolutely none), a bushy (very little), or an impulse (good luck hanging on to the gun)? Thanks guys. I'm really looking into this marker.

Mine had alittle bit of kick, but that was just because the LPR was up alittle to high. Once I set it correctly I noticed a tiny bit of kick, alot less then my old Cocker, and less then some of my team mates other guns (impulses, Karni's etc). Its barely even noticeable once you start playing.

You'll get some kick out of it while you are breaking it in, after about 10 cases, and some slick honey on the ram, reg, and LPR, you won't feel a thing...

If you do you feel kick with the Borg after its been broken in, you need to eat some wheaties!!!

i guess im just a pure man....because kick has never been an issue for me..... of course the first gun i owned was an a-5..... and i now shoot an omen....so when my borg arrives on friday i would be more than willing to bet that i will love the kick of the borg...... does anyone know for sure if the borg has more or less kick than a timmy.....

thanks

a player that owned an ironman timmy, tried out my gun and complimented that the borg had no kick at all.

nice good to hear guys....thats what i assumed..... my is arriving on friday...... and its pretty much been a "blind purchase" seeing as no one around here knows what a cyborg is.... let alone have one for me to try...... ive trusted the words of others on this purchase.... i hope you all have steered me in the right direction....

mine had more kick than my nemesis did, but now i upped the inline (2 liter) to ~290 and my lpr ~55 and it has no kick but i'm not sure what the fps is since i haven't chrono'd it yet. the blast from the 16" matchstik kinda stings my hand though.... *shrug* we'll see i guess

what's with everyone and wheaties suggestions. it's a legitimate question: kick or no kick. he's not wondering how it compares to an M1A1, but to other PAINTBALL markers.

yes, the borg kicks.
no, it's not a big kick.

maybe if there was some sort of volumizer upgrade.... *shrug*

I don't think it kicks so much as it has a different feel than other guns.

Thanks for the help guys. I was just curious. With some guns (no matter how many goddamned wheaties you eat) the kick throws off accuracy in fast bursts. I shoot a trix and it is one of the only markers I've played with that doesn't do that in the slightest (the other was a bushy. Yes, a bushmaster). But thanks again. Minus the cliche' wheaties comment.
