what makes cyborgs great

I dont know much about cyborgs, but what makes them so great and why would they be a better choice than a timmy, trix, or angel?

thanks

They are basically the same design as a timmy, just more efficient. Light, quick guns.

Very fast too, even with a heavy trigger switch. Plus it just screams quality all over, you can tell the took time to make it a gun that you would like. Macdev is not one to make shabby products just to get a few extra bills in their pockets, or overhype and overprice them like dye and SP.

Yeah, while Dye and Smart Parts put about 5 ads in every magazine, MacDev stuff goes mainly by word from the owners of it.

Not the most popular brand, but some of the best stuff around. A lot like how AKA is.

Well first of all the Basicl alluminum the gun is made of.

See... austalias main export is Aluminum. and there are many grades of aluminum, from crappy stuff to HIGH grade stuff. and of course since Australia is a high exporter of it, they keep the best stuff in the country. And thats what all macdev products are made of

Next of all it's the quality of the machines that make the Cyborg and MacDev products. The machines are accurect to within i believe .0001 of a CM or something like that which basicly means that the tolerences are soo good the stock cyborg doesn't come with or even need o-rings on the bolt b/c the seal is soo good just b/c of the high tolerence.

Also, you got plain old effiency... As with all guns there is a short break in time, but after that, if u got a 68/4500 tank, u can go a whole day of play w/out filling. Thats right. As of now i'm getting OVER a case and a half off a 68/4500 fill.

Then, u got consistency... How good? i'm talking +/-<1 FPS over the chrono. and since the gun is soo well drilled, U can be ripping 28 BPs (and i've done it) and not get ne drop off. and if you do. it's 99.99% of the time the tank u are usuing.

Then price. For $998 you get the most consistant marker on the market (since viking isn't made ne more), you get Out of box turnament ready equipment. The reason there are only cosmetic upgrades for the cyborg is becuase there is no need for ne other upgrades other then a locking feedneck and a 80gram switch., then you have light weight... and i mean LIGHT.. when u pick this thing up, u expect heavy weight and i've seen ppl almost throw it over their heads thinking it was gonna weight a ton.

I don't know about you, but it's hard for me personaly to argue w/ those results since my team and I owned faces last sunday all shooting cyborgs. Never had 1 gun problem, no hot gun penently, and even though we were shooting the ****tiest paint on the world... we didn't get a SINGLE chop or ball break.

The Sonic Tri-fade doesn't look very good, nor does any other tri-fade.

The solid black sonic is the sexiest gun I've ever seen besides a Fly.

I'd get a sonic.

Better trigger, better feedneck, better Ram (I think), and those damn nice grips.

I would pay extra for a sonic.

no






The sonic borg is worth the extra $$ in my eyes, Stock u get a faster board w/ different programming, you get a locking feed neck, roller bearing trigger, upgraded LPR, Upgraded bolt, and the body is milled, and the body is also drilled differently to open up some of the air passages more.

and any fade that ends up any color different then black, u gotta buy the match stick with it.. but the Blue > silver > blk fade on sonics is nice.

Goat = Pontiac GTO? That'd be my guess, anyway. Depending on the year of the GTO, I'm not sure if it'd be worth it to sell a GTO for a paintball gun.

But yeah, those sound like some sick guns. Look pretty sweet too, maybe if I ever get any money I'll pick one up.

The Sonic Cyborg is my gun of choice if I ever upgrade from my starter gun I have now. Maybe with my tax return I can convince the wife that I need it or I will die!!!!

I love the video on thier website it really is pretty fast and consistant.

Barber I think that Black gun is the bomb, it is the one I will get for sure!!
