05 Interceptor/06 Remains vs Legend

the vs thread is closed but i want to get a new gun as soon as i sell the one i have now. i have been looking at the interceptor and the remains for a while but i think the remains might be a little outside my budget. anyway what do you think about these two (05 interceptor and the legend). i have some pros or cons but i still dont know:

Interceptor
pros- sweep technology, great customer service, cool factor (cause of the limited # of 05 ceptors), light, 85 frame
cons- slightly older gun, had minimal and easily fixable promblems in some cases, not much video of ceptors to see what they can do, im on the east coast in NC and i highly doubt i would be able to shoot one before i buy it.

Legend
pros- extreme efficiancy, what seems to be very little kick, light, no lpr to mess with
cons- not quite out yet so i would probably have to wait longer to make sure there isnt really any bugs in them, grips/frame maybe, will not come with cp reg and proto barrel as shown right now, i also doubt i would be able to shoot this before i buy it.

lets hear what you guys have to say and maybe you can help me out

and it is spring return isnt it? that doesnt impress me. it cost more. what is the deal with these things? its spring return, no lpr.....so basically is a gun from a no name company that is basically like a really sweet BKO. yeah likei really wanna blow 750 on that. until proven otherwise, i have no respect for those guns. get teh alien (yes ive seen the videos, am i the only one to realize pretty much any gun made today can do that? shooting really really fast doesnt mean the gun is sweet)

tough call ive shoot aliens and ive shot the legend as a matter of fact i can shoot one if i wanna drive liek 10 min to warped, i have to say after talking to jingle (pretty mcuh the guy who made it) the legend has alot of stuff to it, has a nice feel for a 45 frame no kick really, prettey accurate cant really say if the alien is more accurate tho, both have a lil diff feel, for me the 85 frame on the alien really won my heart but the efficiency on the legend realy had me, as a fornt , and back palyer its nice to be able to use a 68/45 tank and get over 11 pods of and still have air, in costomer service i have to say both have excelet service, well for me at least lol warped always made miracles and made my stuff work, alien i hear is really good, both are small companies so thats really cool, better service easier to reach and more hands down help for us costumers

sry for spelling im typing amazingly fast cus i just drank 3 monsters hah

not quite a no-name.

besides, what exactly is so bad about spring returned. it makes for a less complicated design with fewer things to go wrong (if it is of quality build), and if it has light internals and the spring is of an optimal strength, the diffence should be impossible to notice between a spring returned and an air returned gun. in many cases, spring returned/aided is faster.

as for the vs part of this thread, not many people have shot this gun, so i think it is too early to tell. the interceptor is going to have a price advantage on the legend, and the legend only has one moving o-ring, which hopefully means less o-ring problems. but as for the rest, its too early to tell.

Not the only in the CFOA but the few Had one for a month. They are good guns. Except for the noid problem but thats being taking care of, the 85 is super nice and makes it so your not fighting your gun.

If you still havent shot one by CFOA come and find Jax Intensity I will let you put a few rounds through it.

The Legend is a Diablo Wrath with an extra spring. It's not bad, but it's not worth what they're charging for it.

its defintly more than a wrath, i mean when was the last time you have seen a wrath hit like 100 cycles per second and get 12 pods out of a 68/45. plus i think the legend has alot better looks than the interceptor if you care about that, also idk if you have seen the videos out of how fast that thing is wow here is the link, http://www.center50.com/videos/Legen...tinky%20v4.wmv,plus i wouldnt worry about the boards in either guns giving you a problem cause they are both WAS and are really customizable and work great.plus if HK uses them and says there good they must be. I would say legend if you have the extra money and dont mind waiting becasue i think it will be worth it. good luck chosing

In my opinion just because the hk peoples say its a good gun doesnt mean crap. Certain teams said bko's were good are they not really. Canes say the aliens are great guns but do we trust hearsay no. We need to go out and shoot these guns for ourselves. I know the feel of the ceptor is great price is great too. As far as ups there are a couple. The legend will probably have a lot more upgrades just because it is made by warped sports and certain companys have been making certain things for warped sports for a long time.

Basically everything comes down to preference go out and shoot both guns. In my opinion the fact it is spring return is a major down for the legend, also the fact its used by hk. HAH. But anyways i love ceptors and the legend is fast but we have only seen proto types wait till they hit the market.

Hate to say it man, but internally, the Legend is identical to the Wrath, except it has an extra spring. Other than that, they're functionally identical.

Also, if HK uses them, that's all the more reason NOT to buy one.

Yeah, the legend is decent, but I trust a Pro teams work over a lower division teams word about guns. They're nice and all, but i'd rather an interceptor.

Im not sold on the legends, i've looked at them, but Alien is very new. Something about the canes using them and the fact that XSV NRG used them too... Makes me think i'd go Alien over Legend.

Problem is I cant find either one of thse to shoot first hand
