Freestyle pros and cons

Hey guys I recently ordered a Freestyle for a second gun and I'm just wondering what are the pros and cons of it. I have dryfired one and i know they rip but do they have any problems?

Everything that Demo said, but to add another Con...

Other ppl at the field will never give it back to you
It will get more dry fires than play time.

But seriously, to add to Demo's post

Pro: location of on/off switch
Con: Air efficiency till the regs are broken in

The FS will be come your #1 marker instead of being a '2nd' marker

that actually surpirsed me since im watching that thread, an abomb can sell for more than a tricked freestyle

also how much did the anno cost and how much total do you think you put into the gun

I'm getting mine custom anno'd and lazer engraved too. Not for sale, but for me. So sexy.
I'm then getting Chaos, STD, and anything else that comes out. I need a ccm clamper too.

Oh geez, freestyle all the way versus the shocker.

Some freestyles have reg problems, but shockers always eventually end up having more downtime than play time. Really. Shockers may be the most troublesome markers you can buy.

It's mostly preference when you get into the upper-end range of paintball guns, but I'd never recommend anyone use a shocker.
