Still think this gun is ugly as sin, and with a price tag of $1500? What are you thinking Empire.

I will tell you seeing it in person it looks pretty sweet. I know I will be shooting one. All the features that they put into this is really nice. The main thing is the feel.

While it does have some nice improvements:
The flip top for easy access
Internal pressure guage
Full Freak Kit and CF Front
Single size allen key layout

I can't help but feel nothing is a game changer and maybe that because i don't play professionally needing to tech a gun in under 5 mins. It certainly isn't the most efficient spool out there or operating at an insanely low pressure. Asthetically i think it is ugly as sin-again my opinion. Not a fan of the trigger but i'm sure there will be tons of aftrmarket products available. Personally i can think of three markers that i would rather shoot than the Vanquish-Clone GT/GTI, Geo3 or the Luxe.

Although I still see this being a successful marker for Empire, I dont see it taking the Luxe 2.0 or geo3 out of my hands. It basically is a luxe with a oled board and rubber grips. I dont think the board really adds anything, and unless its been mentioned, it doesnt have anything like the manifold screw and Feathertouch to make the gun smoother. I personally think the gun is kinda ugly and the eye covers dont flow with the milling. Maybe when I hold one in Dallas they will change my mind, but they would have to shoot hella nice to make me even consider changing

Was it too much to ask for since its $1500 for a nice case similar to the luxe?

Guns used to cost a lot more. I remember like 8 years ago angel LCD was just stupid expensive.

This gun has good features tho. Good bolt system like the luxe, oled screen which gives u lots of useful info, the fast and easy design to strip any part of the gun.
All of these features r great, even looks like its really comfortable like the dm ultralight frame. Personally the luxe grip feels so fat cuz I'm used to the dm.

Glad it doesn't talk like the luxe... I just can't wait to shoot this to see, hear and feel how it performs.

But yea the looks and price point really does suck. The look can grow on me, the price... Not so much.

I want one but I'm not spending that much.

Why couldn't they release a base line version and have the oled and internal psi gauge as an add on like an axe and a redline or a GT to GTi? If this gun was $850 without all the upgrades and barrel kit I'd buy it in a heart beat.

I have an axe, a redline, super freak kit, eflex, empire jersey, pants, and pack. $1500 feels like a slap in the face.

I Like the gun and will pick one up for next season. Let the after market ups come out first and let the price come down a little. Also I get a little skiddish dropping $1500 on a 1st gen 1st year gun. let the bugs get worked out this season I'll pick up one next year.

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.
