At first, they were pretty bad, the v1 internals didn't like to work.
I have serial number 0017, with the v1 internals, it does not always work, and sometimes shoots when you pump it.
Brian at metadyne is a really helpfull guy, and if you are having problems, he will help you out, and it is free to send it in and upgrade your internals regardless of if you are the original owner or not.
You also have to use vasaline on them instead of normal paintball oil.
In the end, they are fun, and when they work, it is a cool gun to have.

I don't own one, but have used one.
The one I used must have been one of the good ones, because it had no problems when I was playing.
The most significant thing I noticed about it was that it was very easy to use "off-handed".
I'm a southpaw, and have trouble pumping right-handed.
The reciprocal barrel of the Thumper and the reverse loading action meant instead of the off hand pulling (a problem for me) now the off hand is pushing (much less of a problem).
It took a couple games to get used to it, but I liked it.
The only reason I haven't bought one is all that chatter online about people having problems.
I don't want to buy a new marker that may have inherent problems.
If I could find a used one with all the kinks worked out that works as well as the one I tried, I'd jump on it.

The satisfaction that you get with an electro is that you won. The satisfaction you get with a pump is how you won.
