New Scepter Barrel!

I don't know if this is an appropriate forum (I already posted this in barrels), but I though i'd let you powerlyte guys know about a new sceper barrel coming out, the 2007 version.

"We are are out of stock on the 06' Scepter kits and will not be bringing this model back to market. We have been working on our new design, 07' Scepter that will be available in about 3 months. The new 07' Scepter will feature a sleeker design, improved performance inserts and a mind-blowing custom case. The new case will allow you to hold all seven inserts, one rear and two fronts. The new 07' Scepter kits will also be available in an array of polished and dust colors - Black, Red, Blue and Platinum. Pictures will posted soon and we will begin taking pre-orders in about 3 weeks."

I saw that like a week ago. Explains why Empire has the right to produce the older Scepter kits now. Scepters rule, I can't wait for the new kits.

Insert compatability? I'd hate to think that I'd invested in a nice Scepter kit, then have to buy inserts from Empire, or couldn't get them at all.

Neg... old scepter inserts will NOT work with new scepter inserts... Just got an email back from PL today:

Unfortunately, the 07' Scepter will not be compatible with the 06' parts. However, we will be keeping a continuous stock of 06' parts and we will also be offering a discount on the 07' kits to all previous Scepter owners.

It will be a good 3 months until the new 07' are available for sale though.

Thank You
Powerlyte Sales and Service

Wonder how the discount goes... I'd surely switch my 06 to 07.

Dont get Empire... PL is better b/c of the porting. Stick with them

Sweetness.

I had the full kit but lost all the inserts except the one I use now. Looks like I found a new way to spend my money. That discount sounds sweet.

Now there's something I haven't seen out of a paintball company before. Giving a discount to current Scepter shooters on a new set? Initially, I was irritated that there wouldn't be compatability, but a discount would be OK, too.

Yeah, because I need more barrels and such.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty noble of Powerlyte to actually provide a discount to their former customers. They've pretty much got me sold on customer loyalty. After I get an 07 Scepter, I'll probably look into the Cranium shells too.

I dunno, it *really* depends on the discount. Personally, I got my Scepter as a present and the only negative thing I have to say about it is I could probably use a smaller insert than what I have and a larger... something like... .695 and .682/.680 I rarely shoot paint that small (and I can use a larger bore since I have an open bolt gun) and it's extremely rare that I get ultra-evil (or any other paint that large).

I don't see any real reason to upgrade...

I just purchased the Scepter kit 12" with 7 inserts about a month ago after they had a shortage on them. From the way they described the new case, seems like I have the new case.

I wonder if I have the new kit as well..... *dreaming*....

Hopefully we don't have to send it our kits to get the discount.

Is that the 07? Where can you buy it? Thier website still says it'll be out in 3 months...

Also, do you know if the '06s or '07s come in Impulse threads?

Had a thought in the car today about this - will the Empire Revolver sets 100% fit our older Scepters? If that's the case, we can still run Empire inserts as needed. I'll probably still wind up dropping the bucks on a new set, but I'll likely hand off my current Scepter to my son, and I'd like to keep him well set up.

News forum junkie, lol.

I talked to a rep of powerlyte and he said that they should be out late August, so it's all good.
