Results tell the story behind any innovation and it's commercial success in the marketplace will be a function of those results. Few people bank on hype since it is about the last thing that brings people satisfaction.
How long does it last?
How many Championships has it been used to win?
How is it priced compared to the competition?
What is the quality of the fit and finish?
What is the backing like from the manufacturer?
What is the power, velocity and shot count?
How does it rate in customer satisfaction?
How is the efficientcy and useability?
What is the resale value like?
How accurate is it?
How consistent is it from one example to the next?
How does it balance?
These dozen criteria are far more important than if someone has eeked out greater efficiency by a few percent. What people want is reliable & accurate airguns that get gobs of shots per fill and gobs of fills per tank.
The 900 LD's out there and 120 US FT's/Hunters are a testament to what works for the long haul. Proudly USA made & backed.
I thank all those that have used my gear to get it done. Competition is good.
