Here’s another Bob Long marker to talk big about. The Vice is one of the newer Bob Long editions and even though I thought these markers can’t get any better I’m proved wrong again. The Vise is not only extremely near the ultimate marker it also comes at very affordable price. You can get it for about $750, which in my opinion is like half the price tag it should have if we compare its performance to some of the similar performing markers out on the market (it’s a bit weird of a sentence, meaning that the Vice is just as good as any of the $1500 markers out there). It’s extremely fast, consistent, very accurate, light, easy to clean and durable. I don’t know what else is there to want from a marker. Check out the specifications:

The only things people are wining about is that it comes with no manual (which you can download from the net), no tools and no lube. Sounds like a huge problem to you? It’s a great gun and if you’re on a search for a new marker it should definitely make your top 5 choices. For the money it comes it’s a total bargain.
