Feel like Dye might be lacking in new features but they at least know how to use rubber on their markers and make it look good. I'm sure comfort wise this will be a good year for paintball markers but its not been a great year for looks.

This absolutely hideous. How did this make it all the way to production without someone speaking up?

I don't mind it. Nothing special in the performance department but it's not that bad.

According to ANS JT Impulse starts $1050 and Vanquish $1050. So the Vanquish is basically the same price as a Luxe. I wonder how that will sell?

I could see the impulse selling though with a stock freak barrel, case, and presumably beating the Ego LV1 by $300.

They will likely give the gun to 100 teams as they did with the axe, and they will then sell like hot cakes...

Empire has a lot to compete with at this price point. People are saying "Function over looks!" At this price point you don''t have to chose.
I would rather the Luxe for the same price, or the DM13, Ego 11, Geo3, Victory, or G6R for less. All these guns look great and function awesome.
Sorry, but an ugly gun at this point is unacceptable...

Apart from the slightly weird back lip, I actually really like the look of it - and its feature set puts it up close to top of the pack.

Personally, more interested in finding out what its operating efficiency is - 9 pods + hopper or GTFO.

I was thinking the same exact thing. The Grey one is the only one I would buy that I have seen. it does not look half as bad as the red and black one.

This is going to be my next purchase. I just think the internals, OLED/Functions and Kit are worth it. I don't think the milling looks that bad, and I rather like the extended grip since I have long arms.

What I think they SHOULD DO is have the option to customize the accent colors readily available, not unlike GT's, Luxes, et cetera. Some of the "stock" colors would look better if that option was available to mix and match.

After looking at this a few times, I think the screws in the front grip were a poor choice, along with the color matched plastic in the grips. It gives it the appearance of a cheap toy, not a very expensive high end paintball marker.

i agree, I also like the design of the body, but I think they only focused on a couple of cool little features and then didn't pay attention to the rest of the gun. sounds like a geo1 and 2 as well. no where near worth the $1500 price tag in my opinion.
