Poppet Comparison

I've been looking into Poppets and my choices are between:
Vice, G6R, Cyborg RX, JT Impulse, Ego 10, Ego 11, Marqs, Alien Independence. Pretty much anything around $500

I read some of the Versus threads but I'm not getting the comparisons between all of them. Example: JT Impulse vs Alien Independence

What i am interested in is knowing:
Simple Performance Comparison
Pros and Cons
Known Problems or Difficulties
Your Top 5 choices and Why (Personally)
Best OLED Board Options
Best Upgrades

I am considering all information. Your top choice may not even be the one i choose but id like to know where each marker stands on the list.

Please understand that I live in an area where most of these markers are not likely to show up at the fields. My area is very low end heavy, so telling me to check them out at my local field is like telling me to test drive a Ferrari at the local dealerships. Its a lot harder to do than you think.

Thanks for your help and hopefully this will answer not only my questions but anyone else who is interested.

I vote JT impulse. Great company support behind it, shoots very well and the ergonomics are nice.

Impulse here, as well.

Off your list, I've owned a G6R, several Cyborg RX's, and the Impulse. My favorite of the bunch (and my favorite stacked tube poppet of all time) is the Impulse. A close second would be the G6R. I'm not a fan of the RX platform for several reasons that I won't get into. The RX is a relatively large, heavy gun compared to the other two. The Impulse is just as smooth and efficient as my G6R was while being more comfortable (my opinion), just as light, easier to setup, and super reliable. It's a fantastic gun right out of the box.

G6R. People complain because of the "pressure settings" but generally its something you set and forget. Dont let that deter you.

i have owned everything on that list except the impulse (i have shot it). i currently own. G6r, Vice and a Marq7 i will always gravitate back to the g6r. once you have the pressures set it shoots too good to get rid of. the cyborq rx is a great lil marker as well. the impulse i feel they took a step back from the 09 since they put that damn macro on there.

I'd venture to say that's currently the best deal in paintball.

At $599 the used priced just took a huge drop. Awesome marker IMO with a great feel to it.

yeah, the Impulse is pretty much unbeatable for that price. can't believe they cut the price in half for them O_O


Edit:

But did the MSRP drop? or was that just ANS doing it again? They like dropping prices stupidly low. I'm not seeing any other companies doing this.

JT dropped the price. It's the same at all retailers now. It says "until supplies last" on the flyer. My jaw hit the floor when I saw the price drop email.

No, it's in response to the market, which is a direct function of the poor marketing for the marker. It's a very underrated, undervalued marker. I've owned both a G6R and the Impulse.....the Impulse won me over and I loved the G6R. Try shooting one that belongs to a competent owner and taking a bit more time to handle and inspect it.
