which shoots smoothest in 600-700 range? **poll inside!!**

Alrighty guys, i'm looking for the smoothest shooting gun in the above list when well tuned/maintained.

If it isn't listed, i have probably shot it and didn't like the feel of it OR its out of my price range. (set range of $600-$700, i know the clones are smoothest and what not, but they're not in my range) I'm just looking for everyones opinion in this set of guns.

Any added comments to your vote helps too! I like a nice quite spoolie but always liked the inline poppets too.

Victory isn't a spool. Its an inline poppet.
And the markers you have listed aren't even typically considered the smoothest. You'd have made a better poll with the Clone GT, Luxe 2.0, DM12 and possibly even Geo 3

A clone VX or a luxe 1.0 will be smoother than those listed and you can find those for 650-700.

I'd like to point out that in that price range, you can find VX'd v2 clones and VX clones.

That said, Demon is IMO the smoothest listed. I was insanely underwhelmed by the Zodiac, IMO it's woth NOWHERE near what they go for even used.

Victories are AMAZING, but while I think they're insanely smooth for a poppet, they're not as smooth as most spools (DP's Gx being the exception).

But Demon or VX. I prefer the Demon of the 2 (I have both), but mostly only because I like the trigger better, I like internally milled, I like the barrels better, and I like the fact that it comes with a rechargeable battery.

i appreciate the input guys! Is there any difference to take note on between a VX'd clone and a Clone VX? Same thing with the 2011 Demon's and the 2012 Demon's

Minor differences. Back cap, feedneck, and reg internals. Uhhhh, I think that was it. Shifty's a huge Clone fan, he'll know better if I'm missing anything.

When people refer to a VX'd they're usually saying it has the gold bolt plus the VX internals. (That kit comes with detents)

The parts that a VX'd usually doesn't change that are different on a true VX:
Feedneck (I like the original clone feednecks better)
Reg (Gladiator RX vs VX)
OLED (They type b oled is a ~$30 part)
Bolt cap
The original clones had polished options and a dust anodizing that is duller than the satin anno the VXs have

And then there are some advertised difference you can't really see:
Better frame and eye cover fitment
ASA geometry

I may be missing some, but I really think the VX'd is a great deal.

I appreciate all the help! I've gotta feeling its going to come down to personal feel between the VX/VX'd and a Ripper(i'm in love with the milling and what not)

Personally I shoot a vx'd clone with a PE Violent Series SL3 reg and I love it. Quiet, smooth, efficient, comfortable and easy to program and maintain. I honestly don't know what else a marker can do.
