Is it worth it?

I'm thinking about trading my V2 Vanguard creed for an NT. I'm hearing more
And more good things about them, but very says they require tons and tons of maintenance. If u have an NT up for sale, hmu with the offer. Thanks

i personally have loved my nt since the day i got it. they dont require any more maint than any other marker, the problem is a lot of people dont understand they way the nt was designed to work. so when something does go wrong they never read their manual and have no clue how to fix it

If you do get an NT, I'd recommend getting the NT11 internals that are swappable from Dye. They made some improvements primarily aimed at increased reliability.

Well I really don't have money to add for an NT11, or else I probably would. And the first thing I do when i get a gun is read the manual. So what's up with the spacer kit? Do u really need to use it?

Tons and tons of maintenance is total BS. No more than any other spoolie. Relube the orings every couple cases. That's it. My NT is basically my permanent backup. No matter what I take to use, I take my NT because I know it will just WORK.

That said, I have both the v2 Creed and the NT, and I find the Creed has a much nicer board, easier to setup (since it's OLED), better trigger, better on/off, more efficient. If I had to keep only 1 of the 2, as much as I'm a fan of spoolies, I think I'd keep the Creed, it's just a superior design.

Alright, I'll keep that in mind

The NT takes almost no maintenance. I play in a field where most of it is sand. I dont mean dirt i mean sand like a volleyball court. I shoot my 2010 NT every weekend for almost a year and the only thing I do is lube the gun like every 2-3 weeks. Most of the time I when Im done with it I just wipe any slime off it and put it back in the bag and this gun has never had an issue EVER.
