I completely agree. This gun should have been priced in the $750 range to start with simply because the JT name. JT made good products years ago but people weren't exactly chomping at the bit to shoot a JT gun. This gun marketed originally at $750 or with the Empire name at $1050 would have been killer. Let's face it, the same thing is true in paintball as in everything else and that is that brand matters. It is a status symbol and people just aren't that interested in a JT gun.
A neat little social experiment would have been for a company to release a marker exactly like the GSL limited supply and everything but change the wording of its features and market it under a not so well known name or something and see how well it sells. Then two months down the road PE actually release the GSL. We all know how that ended up. I am one of those sheep that bought a GSL and love it. The first gun I bought new. I was willing to pay for it because it had a name I know and respect.
I am actually looking to pick one up now that the price has dropped. Someone will be wanting to part with theirs for cheap before price drops more and it seems like a great shooter. I still wish they would have just reworked the 09 Impulse. I wanted one of those so bad. Then SP went under.
