GEO 3.1?? Come See!

So here is a pic of what i think would be a Geo 3.1. I honestly think it looks pretty sick. And i think it would preform better from the revamped grip frame, and trigger design, and the new "SL4 regulator" making it more consistent and more efficient. And on top of that it looks sooo comfortable. What do you guys think, any suggestions? Thoughts/ opinions??

Yes this is a photo shopped pic, not the actual design.

First off, this has been done a bunch already.

Secondly, how would it perform better?

And as an aside, you wouldn't need the bump in the upper part of the trigger area as the noid could move forward by the reg area (essentially where the LPR is on the LV1)

I personally think that Planet Eclipse should get on the train with most other companies and start getting rid of any air hose (no macroline). But planet eclipse makes great guns anyway, but the no air hose would make them way better. Anybody agree????

I completely agree. BUT it's gonna be hard for that to happen. At extravaganza the owner said "I will never make a macro line less gun"

Im not meaning it would shoot better, but the grips over the sl 4 reg would make the gun much more comfortable

I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't mind macroline. I can't say that it has really ever gotten in the way.

Never felt it got in the way either, held the LV1 a couple days ago and didnt even notice the tube. People are too picky, they'll always find something to ***** about and if the air transfer tube/macro is all they can complain about I'd say you're doing something right, until you get rid of it, then they'll find something else.

Agreed 100% held it, shot it, and even with my bear paws I never felt the line get in the way or even noticed it for that matter. Not sure what the hang up is.. You don't see it while you're playing with it. I guess all that matters in this sport is how you look to other people

My only complaint is that my preorders aren't here yet.

i cant agree more, i think as humans we all will find something to see in a negative way, and until there is the perfect paintball gun people will be annoying and want to start stuff. I personally like the new tube design and io think it looks really nice too

True, there is a fine line between constructive criticism and just *****ing.

This should pretty much end the thread.

Everyone has something to complain about. First you wanted hoseless, it's hoseless. There's no hose anywhere on the gun. There's no MACROLINE. There are no fittings to deal with leaks. People with big hands don't complain at all or notice the tube. Yet people are STILL complaining.

There's being a constructive consumer, and then there's a being a whiny little girl. You figure out which you are .

I've held the Lv1, the tube didn't bother me at all, felt really nice in the hand but to be honest I think if they wanted to make the next Geo look like this they should try removing the pipe, IMO I think the Geo would look nicer without the tube if they wanted to make it look like the Lv1 but just my 2 cents.

Ever since the "out the front" ASA designs became common, and the 45 degree fittings on the regulators the same way... I have had ZERO issues with a well cut and correct length piece of macroline.

The hard air pipe on the LV1 doesn't bother me at all, I could definitely live with that on a new GEO...

I just dislike the aesthetics of the rubber covers on the front grip of the LV1.

Dye has comfort with rubber Whipped... Take one from that chapter P.E. before releasing an SL version.

Thank you

Cromer<3 but seriously, people piss and moan about the hose. It is 100% fail proof. More reliable then macroline and internal air designs. And for gods sake IT IS NOT PLASTIC! I'v been shooting one of these for a couple weeks including NEXL E1 in New England. Never failed, never got in the way, didnt even notice it. Please, save you opinions until you actually hold/shoot one.

Makes me rethink saving for an lv1 everytime I see one of these mockups...I love my geo 3...the 4th gen geo is going to be wicked! Can't help but daydream! This helps!
