Sounds like you got ****ed....

thats just one of the things changed with this one.. the only "freestyle" thing about it is the body. ICD only makes our body, we have other companies making the rest.. but naming it freestyle was the only way ICD would do it.

PBingFreak- No you didnt. We only have 3 pictures taken of it. all are blurry.

Now unless someone changed the meaning of gun to ICD Freestyle Paintball Marker... Then you're wrong.
I've played with almost every marker under the sun. Abomb's on a digi scale weight 1.4 Ib without barrel. Now are you saying that a FS is 1.9 IB with on/off and barrel or just the gun with NO barrel and No on/off? Please specify. BTW my 05 FS is on the way and so is 05 NDFS Pro. I will weigh each on the same scale and let you know.

Abomb 1.4
Sonic Cyborg 1.8
Speed 05' 1.7

those are just a few....

Such a bitter guy Blaze, I used to love you for your crazy videos and what not. Sounds like you had a lemon though. I have had no problems with my FS so far and was able to shoot at least 13bps on the old stock 2 switch board. Good luck with your Ego though (double meaning? ) Those are sweet *** guns.

Can't wait ot see actualy pics of that AB FS though

Copied...and Cleaned
If you think the freestyle sucks because you had a bad experience with it, then thats great but keep it to yourself and out of other people's threads.
I don't want to deal with you hijacking other peoples threads, if theres anymore of it then I'll just go ahead and put a ban request in.
Back to the topic at hand.

Thank you F.O.D. it was getting a little over the top.

What i would like to see added to the AD is a better feedneck ie. no rise, better barrel.....and of course a template you guys would offer for custom jobs ie... types of anno's offered and milling options.

egos are loud as hell...thats all i got to say.

Damnit....to many freestyles are coming out...I just ordered a ND FS and now im thinking of selling it to get this...
hmm customized eh? I wouldnt want a clear window so you can see the bolt...thats just ugly....You should make colored windows(like on the tequila matrix)

I would make a aloha print design...for the sideplates...
can you anno the bolt pull pin thing too?
that would b cool..

oh and what uk hawaiian said to...I would like a ccm feedneck to be stock on there
Maybe custom milling of the body for extra cost? Also JDS lpr stock would be nice...and a good inline reg...That'll be all pplease

have you even shot one with paint? very similar sound signature to freestyle, matrix.

copied from PBSTAR site


1. *Lightest gun ever. approx. 1.9lb

2. *First ever PB Solenoid. Made especially for PB for higher flow, operates at higher pressures to enable faster cycling

3. *Most accurate gun tested. (Margin of 80% hits in a 6in. radius from 100ft.)


1. how can it be the lightest gun ever but be APPROX. 1.9 #'s???

2. SP and humphrey patented a solenoid that was designed for pb use only a year ago.


3. what was it tested against, who did the testing, was wind a factor??

those three statements from pbstar are either false (solenoid) or hype.

Someone needs to do like a full out testing for all the light guns out there because some companies put specs without the barrel, reg, asa, etc so that makes comparisons a lot different.

Yea...I held a A-bomb and a ND fs at the same time and they weighed the same to me...anyways back on topic...

I was thinking...It would be cool to have a personlized s/n..Like...Xcal 420 or just 420 I wouldntwant another on my gun...that would be gay

Erm everyone knows that the EGO chops everything when using a halo or reloader, not to mention that it has the same bounce problems as the e-blade.

But back on topic, this PBStar smells of BS. Even the 04s and 05s are lighter at 1.8lbs. Also, unless they're ripping the noid from the Nerve, then it obviously isn't the first PB noid.

The noid we got from NPS, who, as you know does work with SP, and also designed it. It is the first PB solenoid.

and since when did the 04 and 05 become less than 2.2 lbs? because i own both and thats what they weigh

using all protoype regs, bolt, and a Crossfire 68 4500 filled to approx. 4480 psi after cool-down...

we got 1756 shots before drop-off occured, and 1994 until it was empty.

Note- this could go up or down, after all the prototype we had going was using the best systems known to paintball, and costs us approx 1700 to make.


Accuracy tests- Compared to leading markers with stock barrel:

DM4 -Margin of 75% hits in a 6in. radius from 100ft.

DM5 -Margin of 74% hits in a 6in. radius from 100ft

Proto trix- Margin of 68% hits in a 6in. radius from 100ft.

Lasoya Timmy- Margin of 78% hits in a 6in. radius from 100ft.

Alias Timmy- Margin of 83% hits in a 6in. radius from 100ft.

ND freestyle- Margin of 67% hits in a 6in. radius from 100ft.

AB Freestyle using cp 2 piece barrel system (stock)- Margin of 80% hits in a 6in. radius from 100ft.

Tests were performed using Draxxus Midnight paint at .689 caliber.
Wind speed- 2mph constant from the south
Each gun was using the same halo b hopper, batteries replaced each time
each gun shot exactly 190 shots
