Alright what is the best option?

Situation: newer tournament player with a geo 1, breaks paint and I play snake

Option 1) keep geo 1 and upgrade so it stops breaking paint and is better

Option 2) buy a etek 4/dm14/PE ego lv1/geo 3.5/etha and upgrade

Option 3. Make sure paint is fresh and you won't have breaks. I have shot my gsl in -10 degree weather and not had a break because of good paint. Are they barrel breaks or chops. Big difference. Change the battery for a brand new one, make sure the eyes and the slots for the eyes are clean. There really isn't anything worth "upgrading" on PE markers. I wouldn't swap it for a DM or an etek.

Geo 1

It is fresh paint, i always buy a box and I use some from the weekend before. I have cleaned everything to my best ability but I will see if I can get some help from someone. They said it needs "sweet spotted" and said he will do that next time I see him, last Sunday it was shooting 235 so we put it up to 290 and I did some drills and then checked again and it was around 270. And I can't tell if it is chop or a barrel break

If it's a barrel break, the paint will only be in the barrel. If it's a chop, you'll see paint on your bolt face and in the breach.

Best bet is to pull the core, clean, re-oring if needed, lube and put the settings back to factory. You do know that they just released the new upgraded core which would be the way I would go before trading it off.

Would you recommend the core IV bolt and a upgrade barrel? If so what barrel is good with a geo?
