The Luxe is as good as it gets. Amazing for an opening entry into the Luxury paintball market.

As soon as the DLX Technologies announced the release of the Luxe, I was truly skeptical. A Smart Parts subsidiary entering the ranks of Planet Eclipse and Dye? Features such as tool less bolt and eye cover removal, and macroline less asa seemed kind of cool, but not to warrant spending $1650 on. I dismissed the idea of it being worth the money.

Finally, the Luxe was released. From the pictures of it that I saw, I could truly say it was a beautiful gun, one of the nices designs in the world. I had to opportunity to shoot a couple pods out of one down in San Diego, and that's what compelled me to pick one up.
A month later, by some stroke of gun whoring and selling luck and skill, I had the opportunity to get one.

Onto the actualy review (I have the deluxe version with a micro-maxflo on mine, so take that into consideration. Setup is: 70/45 Crossy tank, Pinokio loader, and Stiffi 1 pc barrel).

The milling on this gun is beautiful, almost fluid. The Luxe, although heavier than the new generation Eclipses and Dyes, feels amazing in the hands. The reg cover was designed ergonomically, spaced perfectly from the frame, making shouldering and holding the gun almost natural. All the tool less features make the gun so easy to work on. On the field, you can just pop the eye covers off and give the eyes a quick wipe if needed, and pop the whole bolt out of the back and squeegie the whole tube and breech.

It shoots just as amazing as it looks. Some companies claim that their gun is virtually kickless, this actually is. The bolt is the only truly dynamic part of the firing system- the only thing that moves, unlike high end stack tube poppets which have a bolt/ram/hammer (bolt/rammer in the case of Egos/SLs), to cycle. The gun is whisper quiet, and with the Stiffi on mine, people on the field cannot even hear me shooting. Efficiency was okay, I was shooting 4 pods and a Pinokio, getting down to a little bit under 1000 psi on a 3500 psi fill with my 70/48. A hot 4500 fill netted me almost 6 pods and a hopper before any shootdown.

Changing settings on the board is a breeze. There is a 4 way joystick that you press down and move around to navigate through all of the settings. Simple enough. Charging the Luxe battery takes about an hour, and they include a spare battery for you as well. You can shoot over 6 cases off one charge.

I was planning on getting a VP trigger for my Luxe, but as of now, I really don't see a reason too. The trigger pulls smoothly and beautifully, and has is adjustable 4 ways. The magnetic return is quick and snappy.

The grips on them tend to wear down quickly, but they will hapily replace them for you whenever you need. I do wish panel grips were available for it, but the speaker panel and charging port does not quite allow for them.

A great selling point of the Luxe is it customer service. Daryl Trent, "Audrey," and "Tarzan," are always there for you. They are on PbNation a lot to answer any questions or concerns or problems you have with you Luxe (mine has yet to have a problem, or even a leak), and getting in contact with them via phone or email is a breeze with their quick turnaround time. Sending your Luxe in will get you a full teching of your gun, and quick turnaround shipping. The high cost of a "luxury" paintball gun is partly attributed to this, and it is quite understandable. You will get great service and warranty with your new BMW, far more than can be expected from a low end manufacturer. Each DLX dealer is required to have a DLX tech on staff as well, simplifying the gun the process if you ever need your gun looked at.

There are a couple things I can see some room for improvement for in the next generation of Luxe. Foremost, I would like to see the 4c eye technology licensed from Extreme paintball designs. Having shot Marqs and gen 5 Timmies last year, I can feel drop in the responsiveness when shooting in semi. The micro-maxflo needs to have a feature that bleeds the air out of the gun. The Q-lock is starting to grind up my Pinokio hopper shell, I kind of wish that the "teeth" on it weren't so sharp. It would also be nice to see a larger barrel insert kit included with the gun, as well as all the tools required to dismantle and tech the Luxe.

Guns that I've recently owned or do own and used to compare this to in regard to writing this are: MacDev Droid, Planet Eclipse Geo, Bob Long Marq series.

i paid 1500 for it the pice thing is being gay
To start when the luxe first came out i wasn't a fan of it, i thought it was a shocker with a talking board in it. But happily i was wrong; this gun is amazing it looks pretty good, but the over all best thing about this gun is that it just fits amazingly in your hands. Really that was the number 1 thing that sold me on it, it just feels that good.
But after shooting it u find out it really is sooooo much better than a shocker, the gun shoots so amazingly,it is consistent, smooth as hell, and has absolutely no kick (i barely hold on the the gun). I've actually been looking for a gun that shoots as good as it and haven't yet found 1 yet.
Geting to the stupid talking board, like i said i thought it was ridiculous and annoying. But having a talking board is actually really nice, it is quite helpful when in programing. you can turn it off it it gets annoying but i tend to miss it when i shoot other guns just because i'm used to it telling that it is turing on.
it is really easy to clean the engine and eyes on the gun too. the engine slides right out of the back of the gun and the eye covers are magnetic and pops right off when u need them to to clean or what ever. The only thing that can get on ur nerves would be removing the regulator, now the only reason i say this is because it is a bit tedious, with all of the things you have to unscrew to get it out.
the gun also comes with a freak barrel, witch is really nice (its accurate). the only this is that they only gives u a .693 insert, i would have liked to get more for the price but it does it job just fine. at the price they sell at they aren't to big of a deal to get more tho.
So in the end this gun is simply amazing, its light, feels great and comes with everything you'd expect a high end gun to have, in my opinion its the best gun on the market. this gun will change ur opinion about popit value guns and love spool values or at least dlx. The only down side about this gun is the price tag of $1500, if it was a bit cheaper it would be nice. other wise i wouldn't change anything about it i don't even miss the oled boards that u find on egos and what not. so if you have the money to buy 1 i would say that u pick 1 up

I didnt list a price due to being gold sponsored and this review is not to be biased in anyway.

Ive owned 27 markers now in the last 9 years ive been playing, most of which have been highend electro's and mechs. I must say the Luxe is my Fav. marker at this point. I was in love with both of my droids, being more of a spool valve person and knowing that the droid gets such great efficiency and performs so well I honestly was skeptical about the luxe. However the Luxe suprised me, it has less kick then the droids, slightly quieter, the stock barrel shoots superb and the thing cleans amazing. I was a little scared about the efficiency, however this weekend I shot 2 1/2 cases total with 2 tanks. A 70/45 and a 68/45 I still had 1400 left in the 68 at the end of the day. So suprisingly its not as inefficient as I figured it would have been, especially for being out of the box. The gun is extremely fast, accurate and consistant and the spacing from the reg to the frame is amazing for run n' gun situations. Actually the first gun Ive used that Im able to run and hit on target with due to its length and size.

Knowing the people behind DLX I guarantee their CS and warranty is beyond what anyone else can offer, however its not something I can judge based off experience as Ive had this gun for such a short time and that I also dont need a tech due to being able to get the parts to repair it myself.

I initially didnt think the gun had any real features to justify its price, I was wrong! the board is amazing, having a voice physically telling you the settings is awesome, no more counting or reading required. No more problems with not being able to see your indicators bc of lighting, and also the fact it says what mode your in can stop any confusion or arguing from refs/players as to what your shooting. The thing on semi just takes off so easily. The magnetic covers work phenominal, and I love how u can pull the bolt tab and slide the internals right out, which makes for a quick diassembly and maintenance procedure.

Id easily say its the best thing out there.

I've owned over 100 paintball guns in my 10 years playing and the luxe is probably the best gun i've ever shot. It is so incredibly accurate. It is literally ball on ball. They look great, their lightweight and well balanced. I would love to have kept mine but I play back in 7 man and I need more efficiency from my marker. It only get about 7 pods per game. So if you're an xball player it works great but a in long games of 7 man you could be cutting it close on air.

Some cons, the Asa Knob o ring is a wee bit.. Annoying? it can rip if you're not careful. And the price... which new can be 1500 haha. There is also the Eyes, can be a hassle if you're not careful. but they should last a while unless your tear them.

Favorite gun, if you take care of it, it will serve you perfectly
