Which marker was used more at NXL, Vegas. CS1 or 3.5

For those who went to the Vegas NXL event. Which marker was being used most? CS1,3.5, or LVL?
Just curious if the CS1 has dominated the 3.5 as the preferred PE Marker

Can't speak on the divisional players, but watching the pro webcast almost all the pro players were using the CS1/CSR's. I did see a few pros using the LV1.1 and LVR though. Most notably JRab and Carl Markowski were using a LVR all event.

The pros have been pushed pretty hard by planet to ditch the 3.5 as they want their top teams using new stuff. I always see a lot of .5s in the divisional though, and even impact kept using them until the bitter end.

Looked like most were shooting CSRs. My personal opinion is that the pros were slow to move to the cs1 because of the weight of the marker compared to the 3.5. The CSR is such a better gun because it is lighter. Makes it easier to run, dive and snap shoot faster because of the weight differential. I think you will see mostly CSRs and a few lv1 (lvr) but I doubt you see many pros shooting the 3.5 any more.

For the money however the 3.5 is still an amazing gun and they will be a constant presence in the divisions for a while!

It wasn't until the CSR came out that I switched from my LV1 to PE's spools.

I wasn't a fan of the weight or shot of the 3.5, but the CS1 shoots great... except for the weight of the marker.

Interesting. I was curious what direction the CS1 was going. I'm guessing this is setting the stage for the next version of the CS1 whenever PE puts it out. Since the CSR was what the pro's where needing. Lighter and thinner grip seems to be the cry for the next version.

You can't look at the pro's because they HAVE to use the latest guns. I'm 100% sure a lot of Impact players rather want to use the 3.5 if they were allowed.
