Some questions about geo 3's

Hey guy's. I'm not sure if this should be in the Vs. section or not. If so, I am sorry. I am looking into getting a geo 3 or a luxe 2.0. I have shot nothing but ego's for years now so this is kind of a big move for me! I owned a geo 2 for a little bit last season so I guess I am kind of wondering what a geo 3 shoots compared to a geo 2. Any input is appreciated guys!

The Geo 3 is considerably smoother than the Geo 2. And also has a different sound signature (depending on the solenoid setting).

Smoothness between the two depends on solenoid settings and amount of paint through each.

Ive shot 3s smoother than 2s and vise versa

Hope that helped

I have always been and will always be an eclipse kinda guy..its super hard for me to be moving from the ego's..I just want to try out something different I supose. I have shot all kinds of geos and they shoot awesome. never really had any interest in luxes until now. is the bump from an ego 11 to the geo 3 worth it?

thats wat i did went from a ego11 to a geo3 the only difference for me when i switched was the ego11 sits higher than the geo3 so it felt a lil weird at first but now its all good i will not be disappointed

Geo3. Do it. Don't think about it just do it. Lol Luxes have resale value and all that but...I've seen sooooooo many Luxes go down but I always see the beat up busted up geo2's and 2.1's mow all day without fail or hiccup...shoot even the old ego9's and 10's still go hard all day. Longevity wins the battle

And the geo3 shot is something to behold. I've shot Luxes before but something about the geo3 shot and sound...it's orgasmic...which is also prolly why the shot pattern is also orgasmic!

Can't beat eclipse in quality or consistency. Best markers on the planet and I felt silly ever considering anything else. Only reason I would sell my geo3 now is to buy a vicious version instead just that good

Geo3 over the Pricey Shocker....errr I mean Lux. Resale is better on Luxe though. So I you are a gun whore like me maybe get a used Luxe try it, sell it for about what you bought it for and pick up the Geo 3 used for a bargain. Keep it further...... And the sun sets on this happy ending!

Seriously, I had a Geo 2 loved the shot quality, but hated filling air all the time. Geo 3 fixed that much better efficiency. In the end I would try both markers. People love showing off there high ends so shooting it over a chrono for a few shots shouldn't be hard. For me owning & using on the field is the truest test of any marker. I HAVE NOT OWNED (only shot) a Lux yet so I until I do some would consider me a PE fanboy. Not really true but I am a fan of the Geo 3.
