Use the cash to buy a droid. Or you could go oldschool and buy an Excalibur. Those two are all they're cracked up to be.

Or they are selling it to hopefully make some extra money off it, its the way it usually goes, when something is new and a few people just want things NOW, not in 1 week.

theyll pay a premium extra to get it.

Same was with the Sl8rs saw some up for grabs at 2G.

Its got nothing to do with it being "less then expected" usually, as all the super clever trolls here want folks to believe.

Youll see the same 3-4 posters hang around in this part of the forum for no other reason then to try and convince those that CAN afford the marker, that its not worth it.

It happens in all parts of these forums, and here few jumped the whole "SP must die" bandwagon, and obviously know all there is to know about things without any personal experience with what ever they are spewing their crap about.

I do really love this gun, however if you really must know why I am selling this gun..

My wife is pregnant, I just played MAO with it and now my playing will be greatly reduced since the recent find of my wife being pregnant.. priorities change.

It has NOTHING to do with the gun itself, but of course everyone automatically ASSumes it is because I am not happy with the gun.

Congratulations, and sorry for your loss of the Luxe, it's such a fine marker.

Also, the ribbon is better than the wire eyes. The ribbon will not end of getting pinched or messed up by the user as easily. Why are wired eyes better? Makes no sense to me. Joystick and speaker make it easy to program the board. It tells you what you are doing. No blinky lights to figure out. Makes programming a snap. Everything on the Luxe is meant to make things easier for the user and I think it does a damn good job of it. I will be shooting another one this weekend at the NY big game.
the people who need a gun to be easier to program are the same people who don't have 1600 bucks to spend on a glorified shocker. i'm gonna hang onto my dark marq 7, which will always be worth at least 1000 bucks in working order, which is more than anyone could expect this to be worth in a year or so from now.

dont as me why i dont know... same bore same paint no other variables other then chrono speed.

but the shocker gave constant results of having farther range, in this case that rules chrono speed out.

wow, way to screw with pages of concrete evidence with a "me and my friend" story, this proves it, right here, this post, Shockers shoot farther, physics has lied to us

Well in his sort of defence......if you line any two guns up exactly side by side....common sense tells us one of them will shoot further than the other on average. It's unlikely they'll both shoot the exact same average however....that's usually the result of unknown factors, not indicative of the performance of all guns in general.

yes, chrono speed is completely ruled out, the paintball's speed has absolutely no bearing on how far itll go

but you are right, they wont shoot exactly the same distance, but not a significant difference as he claims
