Thinking of putting the ego up f/s/t tonight. Really want a spoolie I think.

Well done. Acquiring via the secondary markets = win.

I'll shoot the Luxe and an nt11 side by side so that you can hear/see and differences that may exists.

Which spool are you leaning towards?

None. Liked Jon's Geo and liked your droid. I'll shoot anything as long as it shoots straight

Hear that. I already miss my Droid. I'm curious to see what MD comes out with @ Cup.

Keep in mind while your shopping, that World Cup is next month, and almost all the industries new products make their debut there. The prices on Dye guns (NT's & Matrix's) is about to take a nose dive. I'm not sure on MD Clone values, but I have heard/seen scuttlebutt about new guns from them @ WC as well. Also, rumors of a new Luxe, though those are entirely unsubstantiated.

That's a good point. I'm going to hold off on putting on PBNation until after Cup. I've got some games planned in between anyway and don't wanna be gunless because I'm trading with some 12 year old kid who has to wait for his mom to take him to the post office...

It's not that I dislike the Ego at all... I just want something quieter.

^^ I hear you. I'm keeping my SL, because every spool I've ever owned was allergic to winter in the midwest.

Luxe VS Nt11. Sound signature test. I had to cut the Nt11 stream short due to the abnormally high volume of traffic on my street today.

http://youtu.be/HZCkvmhN1C0&hd=1

A video of the droid (sadly no longer mine. ) for comparison.

http://youtu.be/9Dz08RRZJu4&hd=1

My preliminary impressions are:

Weight:
1) Nt11
2) Luxe (Barely. It is only a 2oz heavier than the nt.)
3) Droid

Sound signature:
1) Droid
2) Luxe
3) Nt11 (In third place by a wide margin. It's noisy!)

Recoil/Kick:
1) Luxe
2) Droid
3) Nt11

Ease of Maintenance:
1) Luxe (stupid easy to clean. <3 the snap grips and battery charger.)
2) Nt11 (snap grips are more cumbersome than the luxe, but also more sturdy.)
3) Droid (it's Achilles heel)


I really am happy thus far with the luxe. I've tuned the VP trigger to my liking (it now reminds me of my beloved techna's <3). The quick bolt release, and lack of macro are also big wins. I hate to say it, but I am beginning to really dig the impulse threads on the barrel too. The long length makes the marker feel "right" in the hand.

It seems reasonably efficient for a spool. I shot 3 full hoppers out of it, and used about 1k. My dwell is at 12ms.

At that rate, 8 pods should be doable with the stock bolt on a 68/45.





I have a high efficiency "efrod" that I will try out later this weekend.

Also, for kicks and giggles, I've purchase a NDZ can & sprung bolt guide from pooty, plus a flat face bolt from ultimaniac. I'm going to tinker for fun. The beauty of it is that I can remove the bolt and swap the stock one back in seconds, should problems arise.

I feel underwhelmed with the Dye NT11. It feels like a PMR to me. Lots of plastic/ polymer parts. I hate the asa. It pops loose when you fire if you don't make sure the lever is snapped all the way up. It also vibrates when shot. It is the antithesis of the matrix "feel" to me. It feels very un-smooth when shot, and flimsy in the hand. Yuck.

Rounding out my day, I scored this little beauty for $20.





And today's Nppl scores:

Really? I would say the Luxe was by far the best sounding. The Nt sounded LOUD though!

It its a matter of personal preference. They have about the same db level (both are quiet). The droid has a lower throatier tone, and the Luxe has a higher pitch. Neither offends the ear, I just prefer (or am more used to) the Droid sound signature.

I totally agree on the NT. It's a frigging howitzer.

Not a fan of dump valves. They are clanky and inefficient. I have no interest.


As for the clone, I like the MD spool series, but am holding off to see what is coming out at cup. I suspect it is a new 'borg. Either way, if the Luxe doesn't live up to my expectations, I will take the clone for a spin.

I just purchased a ninja 68/45 w/ a SMP reg, a custom anodized ndz firing can and bolt guide, and a pooty plat faced bolt. All specifically for this marker. It would not be cost effective for you to try to pry this particular Luxe away from me.

I plan on shooting the **** out of it. Hopefully it will be aces, and get me through next season.


Didn't you just buy a new toy for yourself?

$23 will reduce your irritation, and significantly increase the resale value of the phone.
