Spoolies hands down. I'm very picky with that guns I shoot/like and I personally never liked the way any stacked tube poppet shot except for my last g6r. I actually enjoy taking apart my guns and cleaning them/maintaining them

If we are talking about what is your favorite shooting gun.. then yes, spools and DMs. If we are talking about efficiency, then thats a whole different ballgame
I can agree with you on this.

Ha I completely agree with you. I always laugh and get a little irritated every time I read a post about someone wanting a new gun and the first requirement on their list is "easy to maintain and easy to take apart". I love working on my gun. I rip my marker completely apart after every case. And I mean all of it. ASA off, take reg apart, open the bolt assembly, etc. Clean everything until spotless and then re-lube. And I own a Clone which many will argue is the most complicated drive-train of any marker.

Nothing wrong with a PM. What poppet would you like to get?

G6R would be great. Out of the two you listed though...Vice. No comparison between the two.

I shoot an axe atm and it shoots amazingly quiet and smooth. Ive had a guy admit it shoots almost as nice as his luxe.
With that being said im looking to get a spoolie, most likely a geo 3 because i like having very little to no kick, and quiet gun.
I play snake so i like to pretend to be a ninja and not have people hear me =p

Not to burst your bubble but the Geo 3 probably isn't the gun for you if you want to have a quiet, smooth shooter with little to no kick. Don't get me wrong, the Geo is a great marker. It is just not those things. It is one of the louder and rougher shots as far as spoolies go, although much better than the Geo 2/2.1. For what you are looking for your better options IMO are, in order:

Luxe 2.0
Clone GT
Vanguard Demon
Clone VX

Each of these markers will be considerably smoother/quieter with little kick and will all provide better efficiency with the exception of the Luxe.

The Geo 3's perks are mainly reliability and ease of maintenance.

Ease of maintenance is one of the important things to me. And ive held a luxe and shot it as well and i didnt like how long it felt in my hands.

Completely understandable. The Luxe isn't comfortable to me either. I will say though that the Clone VX and Clone GT might have the most complicated drive train in paintball but it is actually very easy to maintain. I break mine down and clean it after every case but you don't necessarily have to do that. I have friends that own Clones and they only clean them every 5 cases or so. IMO they are better markers than Geos. I think the GT is the best marker available and the Clone VX is not far behind. Just a generation older. I personally own the VX and love it. I won't even upgrade to the GT because I like it so much. The Vanguard is just as nice and I would also put it above the Geo. The 2012 Demon had its problems but that is all fixed with the 2013 Demon.

I shoot spool, don't really care for how loud the poppits (that I shot) were...I absolutely hate egos! Hate the noise, kick, feel in my hands, and stack tube design...I feel like I'm shooting a really fast Spyder
