geez man, as soon as one thing thing comes out people want to know when the next one is coming out.

To be honest, i don't see DLX ever making another dlx, they have really created the perfect paintball machine. I would just get the 2.0

Ummmm...no news. Seeing as how the Luxe 2.0 just came out I don't understand how you could be asking for the next one. The Luxe doesn't have much room for improvement. It's still one of the best, if not the best, marker out there. This is true even after years of competitor markers being released. It should speak for the design of the marker when taking that into context. The 2.0 is an amazing marker. Just get one.

DLX has taken a nearly perfect marker (the Luxe 1.0) and corrected (this is not the right word, the 1.0 is perfect if people MAINTAIN IT) the small problems like eye covers coming off (lack of maintainance), the front jewel coming off (really not a big deal), and updating the on/off button cover (never a problem on the team guns we had, which were used 2-3 times a week for at least 45 weeks per year!).

I highly doubt (and haven't heard any insider top secret stuff) that a DLX Luxe 2.5 will be released any time soon.

oh I am stoked... I can't wait.
I just heard romors about it possably coming out sometime within the year. suppose to control everything pritty much threw the board now. (no gauges) something like you put in your intake pressure threw the board all the way to anything that gets ajusted threw the board. One other thing I heard that they were trying to figure out how to consume less air per shot. or just more air efficent... thats what I heard but I just wanted to heard from you guys too. after all I live in a small area and romors can fly fast just to see what is said. lol

adjust the "intake pressure" through the board... I highly doubt this. I'm thinking someone is blowing smoke up your rear.

My Ego11 can fly, so can my Luxe. I wonder which one I can make fly longer?

Personally I'd like to see a "new" model from Darryl, but not a continuation of the luxe. I <3 my one.

i've used my luxe 1.0 for a long time. it is the perfect marker, there really isnt much they can do to make it better, its simple, quite, extremely soft on paint, and efficient enough.

as dc19 said, they just put some dummy/abuse proof features in.

I think it's safe to say that the rumors you are referring to are false. They have just released the 2.0 and have addressed any issues from previous models. These issues were honestly not even issues if you took care of your marker. Air efficiency, ease of maintenance, board options etc. were all pretty standard if not above standard.

As far as electronic pressure control...I really don't think this is likely. Currently, the pressure is controlled through physical means, i.e. springs and chamber volume. The adjustments were made physically by the user. To put electronics into the marker just to control these would require a massive overhaul of the marker design. These changes would only decrease the markers feature highlights. It would also greatly increase weight, lol. I wouldn't hold my breath on this one. The Luxe is at the top right now. No need to keep asking what's above that.

It's not like an iPhone and comes out all the time DLX spaces out the release of their guns so no their will probably not be one in fall or this year any luxe you get you will like you can basically get them shooting all the same

I just called DLX and they confirmed that the Luxe 2.5 is set for release on 6/1/2012.

They also said that the new gun will use springs instead of the usual compressed air.

Def just get a 1.5 or 2.0 and save some money. You can upgrade a 1.5 to a 2.0 for $200 . I'm sure if they do come out with one the internals will still be interchangeable still.
