Haven't shot or even held the lv1 yet myself. Between the other 2, I'd take a GT over the ripper by a huge amount, but only because I think the Ripper is ugly. Obviously you don't share this sentiment. The Ripper would be the most versatile of the 3 with the VCOM being released so you could go from poppet to spool and back again.

Ha He thinks the Rippers are ugly, first time ive heard anyone say that! At least he redeemed himself by saying they'd be the most versatile, ie. the best. I personally think the LV1's are hideous with all that rubber, and the missing LP. If you are wanting the best gun, then either the ripper or the clone. Although PE is known for there quality, it is to early with the limited reviews on the LV1 to even put it in the same category as the other two IMO. Since I think BL has better customer service, has the VCOM which is going to revolutionize how markers are made in the future, and has the OLED board stock. Ripper all the way. I've seen to many MacDev products breakdown on the field for me to endorse them, although I have shot plenty, and they are nice.

NOt into that busy type of milling. I like simple, clean milling. I don't even care for the v2 milling. Love the v1.

Wow, I think you read my mind haha.


To the OP, take the Vic if you play back (need good efficiency), and the Clone if you play front (extremely smooth, quiet shot). Try holding both too, you might love the ergonomics of one and hate them on the other.

The vcom and ripper are some of the best looking guns IMO. Quiets puppets around too and the spool engine looks nice but the ones at my field break down when it starts to get cold which might be a problem to you. The Macdev guns are the best shooting spools besides the luxe of course. They're light and REALLY gentle on paint. I prefer the Macdev guns because they shoot nicer than the poppet Vic but idk about the spool.

i have owned both a GT and currently own 2 Rippers one is a 2012 and one is a new 2013 with the spool valve. i can easily say the spool is as smooth and efficient as a GT, but it feels way better in the hands and to me at least the GT always felt cheap when i held it. The GT shoots awesome but just doesn't compare to the rippers versatility now. I would tell you try both out but if you can't, get a Ripper you wont be disappointed.

GT is an amzing marker. Hold out for the GTi. You will be blown away. The VCOM isn't bad if you like a high tech gun with lots to tinker with. The new spool valve from Bob Long is matrix based. Think of a DM where they actually... GASP improved the bolt system and that's the VCOM plus a proven and refined poppet system so you can have everything. I don't think there will ever be a gun that contends the clone in shot quality though. It shoots too good. The top 3 guns on the market are no doubt the Clone, VCOM and Geo 3. The LV1 seems pretty nice aswell but they aren't fully on the market yet.

Vic all day, smooth as hell with the spool engine and several sexy milling options. the nice thing about BLAST products is it is really easy to get your hands on custom ano work from the factory.

You really think the premium g6r is better than lv1, even after what lurker said on his video of lv1.

The g6r is the best poppet valve marker out on the market.

right here, wouldn't touch a lv1 over my g6r. plus factor in price difference and that should sell it right there.

Do you really think that someones biased opinion of something should out-weigh your own personal preference and opinion?
