When I saw this marker's teaser video I knew I had to have it.
I must say that I was nervous unboxing it for the first time, I've had expensive markers before, but I have usually had the opportunity to shoot it before I purchase it. And I have had my eye on the Luxe for a while before I even knew about the NT. Out of the box I immediately noticed the back cap screws were loose. Trigger was the hardest trigger I've ever pulled (next to a real gun) and only felt better once I completely took out the trigger spring, then it was decent. I tightened the screws on the back of the bolt, threw on my tank, barrel, and loader and head out to the chrono.

266, 275, 250, good enough to get my chrono tag but not nearly as consistant as I would like for a 1500+ painball marker but I write it off as the break in period.

Sound
Initially I had a couple issues with the marker, but as I got more and more used to it, the darn thing grew on me. It's shot signature was very much like a freestyle or threshold. Not the soft lofting sound of the DM's but more like a quick pop. The first thing everyone said online when the teaser was release was how loud it was. But at the field everyone talked about how quiet it was, and as the day went on it became quieter and smoother. Multiple times while drilling or playing other players said they couldn't hear where I was shooting from, just felt the paint come in.

Accuracy/Barrel
I must say this was probably the most disappointing thing, A stock ultralite is absolute rubbish this day in age. It comes as a .688 when I haven't seen a ball that large in ages. I've had plenty of Ultralites before and never have they been able to live up to thier name. They don't shoot through broken paint well (from previous experience) and just aren't available in the sizes needed anymore. I played the first couple of games with the stock back and extremely let down with the accuracy. After an hour or so I threw on one of my other barrels and instantly the shot signature changed (much quieter), And the shot grouping was much much tighter.

Efficiency
This was the strongest claim from DYE for this marker was the improved efficiency. I started with a cold filled 68/4500 and was able to drop 7 pods and still have a hair under 2000 psi left.. much much better efficiency! After that point I didn't keep track of the air efficiency (as I usually just fill up after ever game anyway).

Problems
After two days of play (sat and sun), I hadn't experienced a single problem until the end of day 2, that is when I started noticing shootdown while playing. But I had been on PBnation when the first people got thier markers from Atlanta, and had already known about the tank issue with the new Airport so I just unscrewed my tank a quarter turn and all was well. I thought it was interesting that I didn't notice it until the second day (even though I was looking for it).

Other than not being a fan of the ultralite I loved this marker. the trigger was stiff, nasty and a bit sloppy (side to side play) out of the box, but that is the first thing anyone adjusts is the trigger. I've slowly fallen in love with this marker, it feels extremely quick and responsive to your shot, where as other markers (DM's, Ego's) feel like there is a little bit of a delay from when you pull the trigger to when you shoot. I shot this side by side with a brand new Ego9 that day and the ego wasn't nearly as well balanced and felt sloppy during the firing sequence.

Now in the end I'm not sure if the marker was worth 1550, but it is a top notch marker, fast, light, efficient, quiet (to me).. and an all around amazing little toy. Just be sure to get rid of the ultralite..

The Dye NT is a great looking marker. Feels amazing in your hands, and shoots great when it shoots. Mine was always finicky. It broke paint a lot, went through several eye pipes. But when it did shoot good, it was great. The price for one brand new is pretty high. Considering that theres no Oled.

This gun has been with me since june of 2011. I got this beauty used, and it was actually it amazing condition. It has all the original orings on it but I lube the heck out of em . The only problem I've ever had was my eye pipe cracking and the macroline leaking a tiny bit. But all in all. I have had no horrible experiences with this gun. you just gotta take care of it.

I have a dye nt 11 and it shoots amazing and ball on ball. I absolutely love this gun but the only thing i dislike is that its hard to maintain do to leaks. The nt also does chop but because of the eye pipe system it gets cleaned right away.
I would recommend this gun to anyone. A few more ups are that it has no kick, super quiet, feels amazing in hands and very easy to program

Got this gun in a trade awhile back and I loved it. It never went down on me once. Only complaint is it was sketchy with some paint. I had a case of marbolizer and i was breaking paint all day. (Everyone else was struggling with it too though) If you can pick one of these up cheap... Go for it!
