Didn't you know - all PBN members have a crystal ball. That's the only thing that can explain most of the posts on here.

I like the idea of the rubber grips on the front, would hopefully like to see some color inlays in there eventually.
Do you really hold the marker that low?, especially with the LPR missing

I can dig it, and am sure it shoots great, but that air line placement halfway up the reg almost seems to be in the way more than the 45 degree line they have at the bottom of the older sl3. It wouldn't be a game changer in any way, but I personally would have liked to see it exactly as it is now, minus that goofy air line.

edit: meaning totally macro-less. Also, everyone see how comfortable the grip looks right under the rear of the ram? Nice touch

Gotta admit, I always hold mine near the top of the grip - where the DM has their rubber...

The way the front grip has replaced the lpr, I never notice that tube. Many many players have already used thus gun and reported back to eclipse, if it really got in the way it would have been changed.

Sure, depending on the situation, slide, fall, bunker, angle, i hold my marker a million different ways, but thats not really my argument. My point is this is still not a hosless gun, so why even bother moving the hose? All things being equal, this hose is now more an incumberance than the previous hose. I am sure its a great shooter, I would just vote if they couldnt go hoseless, why move the hose?

I am really hoping Jack and co will let us hold it this weekend... if it is comfy and does all you and Jack said ie smoother, quieter etc then looks aside, it may be a considered option. End of the day, in the last year i've owned 10 or so markers and I am still looking for that one that ticks all my boxes, and if this does it then MAYBE I would consider it... if I could get it as a team deal

I've got to agree. I've been holding my marker higher up on the front and wrap my thumb across the top since I've gotten away from poppets. Ergonomically, the Ego looks fantastic. Aesthetically, it doesn't do it for me just the same as the Vanquish.

It probably works great, but I still think it's fugly. of course it will probably grow on me like the rotor did.

Jack after reading multiple post, you obviously misunderstood what people wanted. They wanted a HOSEless gun not a macrolineless one.
I mean, sure people said macrolineless, but obviously they ment a hoseless one
Silly you!!

Btw, not even sure people have used the word hoseless before you trolled them Jack !

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
