Am I missing something, I'm not seeing much innovation, yeah they moved the macro, but it seems like it will be tougher for people that wrap their hand around the front grip. I dunno I'm sure it will be bullet proof but it doesn't look high end to me.

The valve is much, much higher flow than the old one, yet it has been properly designed to improve efficiency, without adding any seals, so it maintains the ego hallmark of reliability. Jack and I studied fluid mechanics, biomimetics, and the mechanical dynamics of the system. For instance, the valve spring is now extremely light, and is hidden so it does not create random zones of low pressure near the valve mouth. The volume available to this improved valve was drastically increased to lower pressure.

The lpr being moved in to the body allows the front to be gripped with one hand high on the barrel much easier

The trigger frame is also higher ( closer to the hopper) than any other stacked tube, which reduces profile.

The macro less system jack chose allows you to tech/swap the reg quickly, while eliminating potential soft line leaks and profile. It's not a compromise. I have gigantic hands and it doesn't get in the way of me gripping it.

I'll just say this: shoot it. I have been a very vocal critic of the shot quality, and, frankly, some of the design philosophy PE has used in the ego previously. Jack and I talked through some of that with an open mind, and jack had his finger on the pulse of the players they sponsor, as well.
When a company stops worrying about hyping a tweaked gun every year and sits down to revamp it, you know they care about the end user experience.

The result is what is now the smoothest and quietest poppet gun available without a balanced valve. And in a lot of cases, better than those that went to the trouble of including it, at the cost of adding critical seals (more orings to fail). And, by the way, it appears to be more efficient than the previous egos.

I'll have a full technical discussion of all the major changes in a video Friday. And this is without even touching on the mechanism linking the valve and rammer, which was a master stroke from Jack.

Lurker summarized things nicely

If this is a LV1 will we be seeing a LV2 in the near future? Like different levels of one gun similar to what J4 is doing?

i hope it shoots as good as i have heard it does and not how it looks
owell anyway you go about it the SL version will look way sweeter
i like how they kept its lines simpler then some of the previous egos,
that being said im not a huge fan of it past the trigger but i cant really judge havent shot it or even held it yet

Let the ergos grow on you it looks confortable , maybe down the line they will give a smaller grip ... you all put grips on it anyway ... he just did it for tou ....

..It would have to be more than 1100. Ego 11's new are 1000 still..I'm guessing 1350-1400.

In all honesty who cares if your gun is ugly. When you are playing are you sitting there thinking "wow that rubber that my hand is completely hiding is ugly" I doubt it.

If the performance is a good as been said I'd buy one.

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.
