At that class of marker it will be which ever feels more comfortable in your hands.
Smooth, reasonably efficient, easy to maintain, good looks and good company reputations are all a mute point with any of the three.
You should look through the forums and see what kind of issues, likes/dislike people are reporting and guage from there if you see a trend with one or the other.
I dont think you would be disappointed with either. Kinda like looking at Tv sets in the store, if you see all of them some are better than others,, you have chosen three equally good sets. No one notices the difference in your livingroom. And you will probably be happy with the performance of any of those, just find the one that fits you the best.
Report back which you purchase, and let us know.

Those guns feel so different in the hands -- that would be the first thing you figure out. The luxe is a dang rail gun and I hate the way it feels. The geo feels pretty nice in the hands (probably the best) but I don't like the shot. The clone is pretty darn comfortable, efficient, great board and shoots amazing.

Everybodys different, but for me the Luxe is the most confortable.

My Luxe is really comfy and nice in the hands (personal preference). Shoots great, really quiet, and incredibly smooth. But it is a gas hog. I average a hopper and 7-8 pods on a 68/4500. DLX had great CS
As much as I love my Luxe, I love my Clone GT that much more. Just as quiet if not a tad quieter. Even smoother shot, which is insane. Most efficient of the three you listed... alot more than the Luxe, and still a little more efficient than the Geo.
Ive spent several full days with the Geo. It's an improvement of the previous models. It's really reliable and a good gun. The SFR adjustment doesn't really have a lot of adjustment, but enough to make a difference (not like a Luxe with the manifold/FT where it takes you from one extreme to the other). It's feels good in the hands. But for me, its still not quite there. It's still not as smooth as the other two.
All three are great guns. All three have good CS. I would STRONGLY recommend trying all three, at least holding in the hands.
All this is just opinion, but more me, it goes Clone GT, Luxe and then Geo3 if I was purchasing brand new.

I have not owned a gt, but I have spent some decent time with them... The geo3 is a great gun, and a huge improvement as far as smoothness of shot over the geo2 and also feels really good in your hands... But I always end up going back to the luxe... For me, it feels easier to run and gun with the luxe because of the spacing of the gun. With the FT screw in, you would be hard pressed to find a quieter or smoother marker. Same as others suggested, shoot them all. I handed my luxe to a teammate last weekend when his DM was having issues, the first two shots he shot, he looked at me and said " now I know why u want to shoot a luxe!"

My Gt shoots better than my luxe and gets better efficency but the luxe grip frame is a little more comfortable. But I like the spacing and the where the reg is located better on my GT. The board on the GT is also very straightforward and easy to change settings. In my experience I have never had a problem with either so they both have equal reliability. Both are very simple to maintain once you do it a few times. Geo 3 will be reliable but IMO does not shoot as nice. and no macro is a huge plus for me on the other two.

I have shot all three and, contrary to the above, I find that my luxe shoots smoother than GT's or Geo 3's and is more efficient (with the LurkerPB upgrade). The geo 3 however has a really pleasant feedback which I enjoy for going semi, and I think that GT's just look awesome. The Luxe is also my favorite ergonomically but that's preference. It's grips are more stretched along the body so you get some more space for your hands off the same amount of gun.

I understand most is personal preference and your experience may have been that the Luxe is smoother. My experience has been the GT is smoother than my tuned Luxe.
I don't agree with your statement about the efficiency. Even with the Lurker mod, its still not going to come close on efficiency

I've owned 9 Luxes and 3 Gts.

The luxe is amazing. Fragile on paint, smooth as hell, and feels great in the hands.

However, for me, the GT surpasses the luxe in every aspect. Plus, you get the added bonus of better efficiency.

Both guns are awesome, you cant go wrong with either one.

I never owned a Geo so I cant compare.

I agree, the GT is phenomenal. Its also better on fragile paint than the Luxe.

Out of the 3 I would pick a Luxe. IMO the GT shoots nice but the milling is garbage and its made from low grade material. Geo shoots nice as well but the macroline kills it for me. Luxe FTW.

Low grade material? Please prove that statement.

As for the milling being garbage, unlike most other "high end" guns the clone is actually made by MacDev in Australia under the direct supervision of James and Bourke. So they leave some milling marks on the outside, but I guarantee the tolerances are some of the tightest in the business.

I've owned all 3, CS from all 3 company's is phenomenal!
As far as overall performance I think you'll be happy w any of the 3 and it will come down to the feel of the gun in your hands, for me it's a Luxe or Geo3, the GT grip frame edges make it uncomfortable for me due to the way I hold the gun so much to the point I can't use it!
For me it's Luxe, Geo3, then GT
