legend will be more reliable and easier to maintain than your trix. NO LPR makes it much easier to deal with. I have a pm5 and I shoot my legend over it, but then again I shoot my victory over the legend.

I've read through like 10 pages and haven't found a good review over the NXT vs. Legend. I LOVE my NXT but sometimes the hassle of cleaning it and the leak problems it gets (typical of a spoolie) just bug the **** out of me. I have never shot a legend. For this matter, I have never seen one in person. I just want to hear the honest opinion of some other ballers on this one.

I have a straight trade for a Virtue'd NXT to a Legend. What would you do?

Edit: Also, what sort of problems does the Legend tend to have? I think ya'll can understand when I say some problems bother be while others don't.

Shocker = Maintenance heavy and leak prone. No more smartparts means that parts aren't going to be produced anymore... Not So Smart parts!

A G3 just plain out sucks... Believe me! They are cheaply made and just... well... I believe I've already said that they suck, but I say it again just the same!


I wouldn't trade my one Legend for 20 G3s... Unless I knew they were in top shape and I could sell them right away so that I could buy another Legend instead of the one I traded away.


The Legend with the spring mod (from rhino1xl or your home made one, either is under 10 dollars) is every bit as smooth as the smoothest of poppets (like alien, bl vice and vanguard) but with next to zero maintenance and just ONE moving o-ring.


I like the legend most of all markers I've owned... I've never been a spoolie fan though, so poppets is where it's at for me.

the legend has one flaw in my books and thats the harness, be nice to it. Other than that its way easier to work on than an ego. Its kinda like the clidesdale work horse (SP) of pb. pretty much unstopable the eloctro tourney version of a tippmann.

pmr is a pmr no matter what year it is. efficiency is meh. the etek 3 is a over priced ego7. id take a ego7 anyday. the fx well i cant comment there but if dp used any stupid non-standard metric orings in it i wouldnt even consider it at all. and the legend is a killing machine gun. thats really simple. the ego7 is a really good gun though.

Just so you know: We are talking about a high-end vs low to mid ends here and comparing apples to preserved prunes.


Etek3 is good... ...I guess... ...if you like Eclipse and you are an Ego fanboy on a budget...
Looking at the options, the etek3 is overpriced and underequipped. Plus for being a poppet it's an absolute air-hog making you wish you'd gotten a spoolie instead.

Pmr10 is a spoolie btw!
If you like the way they fire, then get a real PM used instead. The PMR can be decent, but it's like you pay more for the extras than you do for a new PM or DM... Or funk them all and get a macdev Clone instead!

While the FX works about the same as a legend it has problems with the trigger, it's sloppy and the magnets (in the FX) are a total failure. That AND the notorious quality problems plus NO quality control from factory makes me stay 200 miles away from one if possible.
In the air consumption department it's equally lean as the Legend, but that's where the comparisons end!
Oh, and the FX is lighter too so you feel the kick more!


So, no thanks... I'm sticking to my legend.
It weighs a bit more, but that just makes it feel solid!

Look to how the e tek first compares to the predecessor, and then take a look to how it works with the E tek. I have no experience for either Ego guns, but the legend I can say by watching it and shooting with it, holds it own against the ego, then again that statement could be biased towards the user!

the most problems I have encountered while watching the Warped Kids play, is maybe a hose on the inside that is connected to small brass fittings on the inside splitt. that has also happened to me. And with the maintenance of the Legend vs. the SFT that I have, I have to find something else to occupy my time, (but that is a personal problem) due to the one O-Ring that requires a drop of gun oil ( violent series is what I use ). As opposed to ( you can count the o-rings that your nxt have, I lost count.) the grease, and miriad of o-rings that the shocker has. Another problem I have is deciding which one to shoot on game day, the sft with the inertia bolt, and a ndz trigger, or the Legend, with soft tip bolt.
The hose split, is common, but not a every weekend occurance. It happens, but probably due to user error.
