Big things I like:
Easily swapped from hopper to clip fed, just push in on the barrell and rotated 1/4 turn.
Hopper is naturally off to the right of the gun and out of the sightline.
Can use your Tac-8 magazines as emergency backup if you run out of air or paint in the hopper.
Modular, I can put just about anything I want on the rails of this gun. I don't much care for the flashlight and such, but the bipod, and sight rails are great. Also the barrell comes in 3 pieces and you can shorten it down to just over the length of a Tag-8 (and still have the hopper decent for playing Dagger).
Big things I don't like:
In order to go continuous air you lose the ability to run clips (gun comes with a clip modified so the air feeds through where the 12g CO2 would go). Though you can still load 8 rounds in that clip as a backup incase your hopper runs dry in a firefight, you can swap to the clip with a twist of the barrell.
A little big, but fortunately, still fairly light.
Somewhat loud(average for a stock CO2 marker), the stock barrell is not designed to be quiet, it just looks cool. I fully intend on picking up a compression barrell soon.
I haven't had a chance to get it out on the field yet, looks like my first time out with it will be on the 4th of July (Alien Invasion at Northwest Paintball). I look forward to it though. So far the gun has performed exceptionally for being fed cheap paint and CO2.
