I got this about 2 weeks ago, since then I've fallen in love with it. Azodin added a clamping feedneck to the ZII making the overall height much smaller than previous models, it holds super tight, maybe too tight. I have to wrestle my rotor into it. It has an on/off asa that uses a knob, not my favorite as I like RAPS asa's, but it does the job and requires little maintenance. The 14" barrel is very accurate. Another nice little change they added is a tool less cupseal replacement, no more unscrewing the reg. The zero system threads straight into the body, making barrel leaks a >1 min fix. And the biggest improvement/feature is the OLED board which is more than anyone will ever need. It has all modes that most players are used and then some. It has options that can show you any stat about your game that you want from ball counter, to a game timer, to max trigger pull, to avg pull, and so on and so on. And no more sending of your board for flashing like the Zen2 boards. The only downside to the Azodin ZII is the cheap grips. The same grips used on the blitz, blitz evo and original zenith are brought to this marker. "The bulging battery" problem causes the board to be exposed slightly, not a huge problem for me, but a lot of players have expressed their opinions(hate) of it.
Overall this is a great shooting and looking marker. I can easily see this holding its own with the g6r's and egos. and its backed by Azodin's famous customer service. so you know any problems will be taken care of quickly. If you're looking for a $300 price tag, you'd be crazy not to look into the ZII.

When I got this gun, I was trying to see how it compared to markers in it's price range (i.e. Mini, proton, rail, etha, etc.). After using it - extensively - I can safely say that it's really underrated.
1) Standard features are comparable to super-guns.
2) Gets about 9 pods off a 68/4500 hot fill (out of the box).
3) Shoots tournament/brittle paint flawlessly.
4) Completely tools-free standard maintenance (dynamic o-rings, bolt, etc.)
5) OLED screen board that is really easy to navagate, and has tons of
adjustable firing modes.
6) Very nice, detailed, full-color manual with pictures, full gun schematic break-down that unfolds in the back, part number,s o-ring sizes, any and all specifics you may need.
7) very nice box with lazer-cut foam.
8) Very nice looking marker, nice milling, ano, etc.
Grips should be better. Everything else on the marker feels of high quality, but it still has the same grips as the blitz.
Overall, this gun is about on par with an Etek3/4 LT. It is much better than a DP Fusion FX, and others in that class.
This could easily be a 500 dollar+ gun in that with everything considered, it competes more directly with this line of markers, than what it's priced for.
Would recommend this to anyone needing a tournament-level marker with lots of luxurious features for cheap. at 350.00, this marker is a steel!

When I first received the gun, I thought it was awesome. I had just got into paintball about three months before I got ordered the gun, and had decided that I wanted to be slightly more competitive and start speedball. I got the gun and shot it in my yard for a few weeks until I could play to break it in. When I actually got to the field it broke (conveniently when somebody was asking about it.) It had several broken O-rings in in the lpr. When I got home I went and fixed it and done maintenance on it. The next time I got to the field It broke again. So I fixed it, and it broke again. This happened three or four times, so I sent it to my local pro shop(Paintball Central). When I shot my gun it broke again. At that point I took everything apart and put it back together again, and it finally worked, and I hole it continues to. Now onto pros and cons
OLED Board, The board on this gun is so easy to use, and tournament lock is easy to access. It is very SIMPLE TO OPERATE because of the kind of people who will buy this gun
The barrel on this gun isn't something you should buy the gun for, but it is a pretty good barrel with a nice finish
The trigger on the gun is awesome for semi-auto. It is easily adjustable and feels really nice, and I daresay it's almost as good as an axe trigger
The gun in my experience with it isn't very reliable, and I don't know if I just got a lemon or if the guns are just not very high quality
the grips aren't exactly the problem it's the grip frame that is kind of uncomfortable. The frame is fat and the ergonomics of the gun aren't very well designed
Compared to any of the other guns in its price range it's not very smooth or quiet. A few that are smoother and quieter are the invert mini, empire mini gs, proto rail maxxed, gog extcy, proto rail, dp g5, and the valken proton. compared to what you could buy for a little bit more money or even less (up to 50 dollars less), I COULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS GUN.

I've gone through two of these Markers since my initial purchase. My first was a lemon, a factory defect, so I was having constant problems. I sent it in three times and Ed and Eric (The techs at the US office) did everything to get it working for me. Replacing the valve or the reg piston, seeing what could possibly be causing all the hiccups and stutters. In the end they found that the internal milling was off and they replaced it for me under my warranty. I've had no problems since then, aside from ordering the occasional O-ring or two. I play just about every week and already have 25+ boxes into my second Z-II.
Throughout the process, the guys at Azodin were nothing but professional and friendly and this second chance has been worth my time.
-Low operating pressure of 250
with all the necessary settings and more than you could ask for
-Very low maintenance marker
Easy break down, quick clean up and lube is done in minutes. O-ring replacements are just as quick
-Quiet and little kick
Thanks to the Zero-D system I feel little kick while playing and the sound signature is lower than an Etek 3/4, a whisper in comparison
You can tune the Z-II for better shot quality and lower sound signature, a little more air efficiency with kick back, or somewhere in between when dialing in with the Zero-D system
-Quality Customer service
Azodin reps are always more than happy to help
-4 way adjustable trigger
-Durable/Tough as hell
I've dragged this marker through dirt, dropped it during runs, taken core samples and after I run a squeegee or barrel maid through it, and lube it up again it goes back to work.
-Stock 2 piece barrel is very accurate
-Very underrated marker
I compete equally with many high end markers
-The 45 grip is the same throughout the Azodin line
-Initial marker was a lemon
