can anyone at cup go to the empire booth and actually ask a rep instead of throwing their opinions out, a video of an empire rep talking about it would be cool

They are not releasing it at Cup, so no they can't just ask a Rep. Empire is keeping this one a mystery for a bit.

so sice they are not releasing it someone cant ask questions about it without maybe getting an answer, thats like saying since a cow didnt produce the milk for next month we cant ask about the cows health...

who cares if it is ugly or another luxish type or another hatchet marker. It is a high end gun that does the same thing as a lot of other markers out there...shoot paint.

That is a terrible analogy.

You can ask if you want, but if they haven't given the slightest clue to ideas except a name and an outline than they will most likely be holding facts closer to their chest on this one. It is a hype tactic. They want people to get excited about the new product and start making predictions and chatter about it. Every company does this.

You can surely ask and you will get basics like *It will shoot tournament standards, it will have a macrolineless design, etc.* Stuff that is clearly obvious to what we know.

If you are going to ask the health of the cow that isn't producing milk, as your terrible analogy suggests, than your answer is going to be "Ah, the cow is alright and mooing."

Since we are dodging, I will make him run to exercise.

Looks are a BIG deal man.
Aesthetics are huge and they matter, don't pretend they don't, and anyone who acts like theyre not is truly foolish.
No one wants to shoot an ugly marker. Would you rather spend $1200 on a nice looking marker? or $1200 on a marker that doesnt look nice.
Plus its a large market with many competing companies. Do you think They would make as much money if they made an ugly marker? No. People would rather spend they're hard earned money on something they're totally satisfied with.
Would you buy a gorgeous and fast sports car for 'x' amount? Or buy a fast p.o.s. looking car for the same price?

What is ugly to you? Personally I don't like the way the Luxe looks or holds in my hands, but I love how it shoots...I don't shoot a Luxe often but I don't think looks really matter just my opinion

I dare you, a couple months before the next Apple keynote, ask them for details about what products are going to come out and see what their response is.

I think you are getting 'angel' from how fat the tape makes it look. I doubt its anywhere near that wide.

The frame really looks goofy to me. Almost like an old impulse frame:

And I'm sure the quality of the paint or if the barrel needed to be swabbed had nothing to do with it...
