Go with the Clone Vx trust me thats one of the best markers ever!! My team shoots Macdev. All Macdev's are quiet but the clone is the quietest of them all.

shot (traded luxe for clone) both (own clone vx now) hands down i would choose the clone. Out of the box new it shot like it was broken in. Shot about 5cases through mine and is yet to have any problems are a break in the barrel. Currently using slp tank with it noticed slight difference in performance. seems as more paint through it gets quieter and buttery smooth.

Clone vx is a better gun all around and cheaper, only thing I would do is upgrade the trigger and your set.

VX. A little more maintenance, but much more rewarding to shoot.

The 2.0 will be a bit more efficient, but less consistent and will probably feel awkward, or that's just me.

The stock VX trigger is fantastic. VX resale is better. The list goes on.

Im going to oppose everyone here, i shoot a luxe. Own 2, but just absolutely love them.
Love the feel a lot better then the clone, i had a clone, guess it was just me, but i wasnt feeling it as much as my luxe.
Love the way the luxe shoots and sounds.

Go with the Clone. Luxes can be hit or miss, and especially miss in colder weather. They are both quiet guns. Not loud at all.

I did officially order the Clone from Macdev...Last Friday...I was a little skeptical because I haven't got to shoot one...but I've got to shoot a good number of Luxes...and I've shot some really nice ones...and some Luxe's that kind of turned me off...The feel of the Luxe is great though....I did get to hold a Clone and I thought it was good...but excited to get to play with the Clone VX this week...Hopefully they are quick with shipping! Thanks for the input guys.
