Dye vs Planet eclipse I NEED YOUR HELP!!

After sitting around thinking and thinking I can't decide so I come to the one place where I have always gotten great answers.

I have an Ego Lv1 which I love and spoil. But I had a DM14 which I sold because I don't need two markers. I got the Lv1 when I had the DM14 cause I was excited about what I read and obsessed over it til I caved and got one.

But I can't seem to shake the feeling that I still like the Dm14 better with its smoothness and amazing shot but the lv1 has a pretty sweet shot as well and its driving me nuts. In my mind I can sell my Lv1 which has around 6,000 shots and buy a DM on ANS for 1200 and it comes with Dye I4 goggles which is a pretty sweet deal.

what do you guys think all around?

Dumb idea? good idea?

I don't know if anyone can relate but help what you can.

thanks guys

Nothing wrong with either gun but if you wait until the next DM releases (I know its a seemingly long ways away), the DM14 will have depreciated a ton and could be purchased for very very cheap. I like DMs a lot but it is painful to buy them when they are new given how quickly and drastically they go down in price. I usually buy a year or two old model used when I buy them since there is a ton of value in going that route.

If you are planning on picking up a DM and are set on getting one, wait until cup with annual DM price drop. They depreciate like crazy with the new release.

Wait until Cup. It's only around 2 and a half months away.

ugh!! buying a DM14 brand new this days
does not sound a great plan. Unless you
are planning on keeping it for a long time
to come. Their price drop are so extreme
it makes me cringe. it's possibly the worst
"investment" you could make in paintball
guns. not to mention that front grip is not
for anyone, I for one hate it with a passion

Buying a brand new DM NEVER sounds good. Soon as you air it up, it's lost $400 of value. Once they release the next year, it loses another $200...

You guys all have a great point it is a shame that the DM series drops in value so fast but such a great marker at least to me. As for World Cup do I need fly over to Florida to get World Cup discounts? Or online will it all be discounted? Oooo you guys think that the DM15 will drop at cup?

I could wait til then but if you check out ANS they are selling the DM14 for 1200 plus any pair of dye I4 goggles free so it's basically selling for 1050 online. You think itl get lower then that? Even after the new marker drop?

There is literally a 99.9999999999999% chance the dm15 will be released at world cup. Dye has always done this and probably won't stop. But the dm15 will be VERY similar and probably be the exact same performance wise because it's the second model of the 'redesigned' DM. The only difference I can see will be cosmetic. Just like the dm12-13, dm10-11, dm8-9.

When they are talking about the price drop in DMs around world cup, they are talking about the used price value. In the electronic markers forum in the BSTs standard DM14s are going for 750-800 ish depending on the deal. During as well as after world cup, the value will probably go down to 650-700 ish range and only drop from there. The DM13s sell in the 450-550 ish range now.

I understand you are talking about buying new and yes there is a most definite price drop as well there. They will probably selling right below $1000.

I know it hurt me to say that if it were up to me I'd have a dm14 lv1 and a geo 3.1 ....and gsl..and anything else I can get my hands on just too damn expensive. I worried thinking I was the only one who's gun thirst never ended

I think if you really want the DM14, and the free i4's, go with it! Sure it might depreciate more than most guns, but if its what you want (and you get a new mask!) go for it!

Sounds to me like you just want what you don't have. I mean, you had the DM14 and convinced yourself you needed an LV1. Now that you've sold the DM14 you're back to convincing yourself to buy one again. I'll admit that the free I4's is a nice touch but if you really want some I4's just go buy a set and keep your other $1k.

Seems like you want us to convince you to buy the DM.

Its up to you. I wouldnt buy a brand new DM as you would already be losing out on a ton of cash.

This is the most honest answer. What I said about price drop is the truth of the purchase but ultimately the purchase just really doesn't need to be made, although I like others loves the gear quest, it is one that thins out wallets at warp speed.
