What to buy?

Idk where to really post this but I'm looking at buying a new setup.
I really like the lv1 it looks awesome to me and since I have small hands I think I will love it, should I wait for that or get a geo3?

Wait for the new ego to hit stores. See the geo 3 and new ego in person, get a feel for them and pick whatever marker you like more.

Traded my Geo 3 to eventually get a different color. Have an Ego 11, and I don't like the LV1. So my choice GEO 3. I am not hating on PE. I just don't like the look. If every other company can make an internal airway for their markers why couldn't PE. Sure it shoots amazing, feels nice, etc, but I am not a Fan of that air pipe. To be honest that is really it. They could have run it up the reg and around the body and back to the trigger frame and I would have been better with it. Might try one used in a couple of years when cheap. Unlikely that I will buy new were I would have no problem buying a Geo 3 new. Again guys just my opinion so take it as such.

I have an Ego 11 and a Geo3. Couldn't decide on whether I wanted to sell my Luxe to get the Geo so just bought it. Now the LV1 comes out the Luxe is DEFINITELY going so I can get one of those

PE wont make an internal airway on every marker because they wont jeopardize their ease of maintenance.

PE products have been "bullet proof" for years. Their stuff just works! That having been said apparently there has been pressure to make internal airways. It is hard for me to believe the air pipe or whatever they call it is easier to maintain than a macro line and because of that I believe this is PE answer to internal airways. Might be wrong here. All I am saying is the job looks unfinished. This is a ascetics issue over function. I am far from a PE hater. I am instead a loyal customer that does not like the look of the air pipe.

Now I am a huge believer in owning a marker before passing judgement on it, and to some extent I have not done that in this case. I am simply saying with financial times as they are function and appeal are on more equal terms. Long gone are the days of shoebox shockers and other hideous markers that worked well!

I get the maintenance issue for sure, but it is hard for me to accept that a hard pipe is easier to maintain than a macro line. Of course we will all see won't we. My comments were aimed at pointing out that with all the NEW markers coming into the market place, PE' s new design fell flat for me.

I just don't see it surviving someone that really plays hard with there equipment. Breaking the air pipe will leave you without a gun for awhile and then possible dmg to the threads inside or having a piece of it actually stuck in the body.

You need to get your hands on this gun before you make that assumption. First of all there are no threads to "break". The pipe is sealed by orings on either end. When you turn both ends of the pipe it expands and contracts just like a curtain rod. It's also VERY solid, much more so than a macro line and believe it or not, next to impossibly to actually hit anything. They've done a lot of testing before releasing. I've played with it and can attest to its excellent build.
