Luxe 2.0 vs Vanquish

Ok i know that none of us have shoot a Vanquish, but from the characteristics of these two markers, do we have a new sherif in the town?

If they are the same functionally then I'd go with the vanquish because of the board.

I say luxe cause its pretty much been a proven platform since 2008. This vanquish is 1st gen and I wouldn't purchase anything first gen for $1500. Luxe imo is still ahead of its alternatives. Thr board is fine and more customizable than its alternatives in my opinion aswell.

You really can't go wrong either way. I held the Vanquish at Cup and it felt good in the hands (as it should since the luxe feels amazing). Seems they made the Vanquish more efficient, and the side effect of that is it's slightly louder than a luxe.
Doesn't seem to be anything a luxe has that you would be missing functionality wise except you have an OLED instead of a talking board.

I agree with the wisdom above.

My luxe can shoot like it's in full auto when it's in semi, and my fingers aren't that fast. ya, I know "that's what she said".

After seeing the vanquish in person I think it's better than what most people think. It's a little louder than a luxe but is more efficient. I also think they're not as ugly in real life.

Vanquish is pretty much a Luxe 3.0

id say luxe 2.0, just because with new guns there will normally be issues with the platform itself. also the because the bolt is similar to the luxe 1.5.

Yes, the Vanquish comes with the Super Freak barrel kit, and it is Cocker threaded.

Also luxe has a manifold and ft screw for the added adjustment for smoothness. While I am tempted to trade in my luxe to try the vanquish I have a hard time believing that the vanquish will shoot much different than the luxe. It might not even shoot as nice as a luxe for all I know.
And all the extra features are cool but unnecessary IMO

i love my luxe 2.0 and it would take something so much more amazing to get me to trade or sell it.

the smoothness and reliability of the luxe is what makes me love it that much more. i would rather have to air up my gun more often and have it shoot quieter, then something a little louder and more air efficient.

Ive played with many, many guns and i hate how loud a poppit type marker can be. with that said, Luxe 2.0 all the way!!
