Luxe2.0, Vapor, or Vanquish

Hey guys,
Just starting to get back into heavy tournament play. Considering every option, but I have it narrowed down to these three. Looking at play-ability, upgrade potential, and the obvious factors (e.g accuracy, kick, speed, trigger pull, ect.) curious to know everyone's thoughts; I know that most people say it comes down to personal preference, but I live in Alaska and we don't have a shop in the State, so I can't just go down to my local shop and try them all out...

Luxe and Vanquish are pretty much the same gun. I've heard mixed reviews about the Vapor.

Though all 3 are based off the shocker platform and will shoot very similar.

Since the Vapor is the most expensive and doesn't really have any advantage, I'd skip on that. However, it all comes down to which one you think looks better between the luxe and the vanquish. Though, a lot of people prefer the OLED screen on the vanquish to the luxe's vocal screen, so you might want to go with the Vanquish.

IMO:

Vanquish. I think it's ugly. Internally, it's a sprung Luxe. BUT, it's got a nice OLED, it's Cocker threaded, and it's not as long as a Luxe. So I would take it over the Luxe in every aspect except looks. This is what I'd go with.

Vapor too expensive. Much nicer feeling in the hands than the Luxe, and the barrel is NICE. Love the APE board. But, too expensive. Also, it's the "cheapest" design since Spurlock simplified the design so it's no longer balanced.

Luxe. I really dislike the way they feel in my hands. That alone makes me take it dead last.

Good points, I personally could never shoot something I thought was ugly.

Well, not sure I could PAY for something I thought was ugly, but I'm not about to buy the Vanquish or the Luxe, and I already have the Vapor. And my theory is that if the OP is consdiering it, he probably doesn't think it's as ugly as I do.

I like the vapor if you think of this its price sounds better every time a new core comes out its free nt like luxe were you have to buy every time it gets more pods than luxe lot more and eventually you get a free hopper nt to mention the case is nice it comes with all the barrel inserts and barrell youll ever need . The feed neck is low i mean low and the gun just feels right. Well theres my opinion i say go vapor. And the vanquish umm looks like a tippman gryphon knuff said.

Luxe by far...Vapor is just a **** gun...theres a reason why teams are not using them. The Vanquish and the luxe are the only options here...but Darryl Trent and DLX have amazing support and the gun is awesome. Easy as hell to clean and take care of along with feeling amazing in your hands.
