Well Empire wins out here overall.

Empire: Best prices, still great quality. They make probably the best clothing in the industry for the price and the Axe is awesome for the price

PE: Best markers of the 3, and many to choose from. Great clothing and just about everything they make is awesome. I personally think the Geo is way overpriced and the Ego could be marked down. Overall not bad prices, awesome pricing on padding

Dye: I hate Dye other than the Rotor and i4. WAY WAY WAY overpriced, on everything! The last 4 years of the DM has shot the same and the NT10 was incredibly hit or miss. The markers are way overpriced as well, and they release new ones yearly yet they perform about the same. The clothing is fine but toooooo expensive. The Rotor is great, go pick one up for $150 on ANS while you can.

Meh overpriced and overpriced.

In that order. You cannot compare Dye and PE markers since they are very different in operation.

My opinion
Dye for gear. Yes pricey but I love it
PE guns are good but would rather get a G6R and save 400 to sacrifice a case and lube/orings
Empire. Exactly what clsguy said.

Dye: haven't made a new gun since 2007; merchandise is overpriced and under-performing

PE: also overpriced (but better quality), guns have varying changes from year to year (some big ala Ego11, some small ala ego10)

Empire: great gear and goggles, less-than-great tournament markers, fantastic pump ()

I would also go for a G6r too!

Dye makes good padding though

Empire: Great soft goods (jersey, pants, pads), good gun (Axe), great mask (Events), this company out of the three has the best price for quality. OK customer service.

Planet Eclipse: Great soft goods, great guns (Ego, Geo), but overpriced. Best customer service of the 3.

Dye: AWESOME soft goods (jersey, pants, pads), good guns (DM series), awesome masks (I3s, I4s), but the MOST overpriced of the three. Good customer service.
