HOLY CRAP THAT WAS AWESOME! How did you know that's what he meant. I read it the first time and I was like
Meh, the F8 is a fusion. Not a fan of em personally.
You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..
How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.

Wrong The Fusion is not a poppet valve marker like a "super spyder". The Fusion is a FASOR design. A spring returns the valve to the rear position
No, it really is a poppet valve. It doesn't work like a spyder with the blowback, though. Like how autocockers are poppet valves, yet release no blowback. All a poppet valve means is a valve with a plunger like part that seals it off. The plunger thing (for lack of a better word) is the poppet. There are poppet based regulators like the Palmers Stabilizer, same basic plunger part to seal.
It really is a super spyder, like Egos. Stacked tube poppet valve marker. In the Spyder, spring forward, air return. Fusion: ram forward, spring return. Ego: ram forward and return. Does being set up like a Spyder making it inferior? No.
To see the different valves, check here (56K death): http://www.zdspb.com...animations.html All the Hammer/valve based ones are poppets.

But I can get over that. I'm going to try and sell my Fusion7 and get an 8.
Or just get an 8, and keep the 7. Years later that 7 might be worth something, since it's an original.
There are no "07" Fusions. There are the original Fusions V1 and V2, and the F8 is the actual name of the next version. The "F" stand for Fusion, but the marker is called the F8. The back block is milled more, making it a true half block, grip frames and bodies are different. Internals are the same as a V2 Fusion. Except the bolt is shorter. Performance is the same except they added dwell settings to the board which are controled through two dip switches making a total of 6 of em. They also shaved the weight down from 2.5lbs to 1.89lbs. They eliminated the LPR, which is pretty much useless on the V2 anyway. Oh yeah, and they put new grips on them. That about sums up the changes.
They are also coming out with a more "normal" version of the Threshy (or so my sources say). It will have a different name and do not have many details and I cannot really say anymore at this time anyway. I can tell you they only made 500 Thresholds because the milling on them is so complex their CNC machines could only make 7 bodies a day.

A stacked shocker.
