My brother was just debating getting the g5 spec r or the elite.
He was going to go with the g5 spec-r due to the $150 cost savings
His deciding factor was the elite comes with a case lol.
I expect the elite will have a much softer shot. Have not shot one yet.
Hopefully i can shoot it tomorrow when it gets delivered.

The Elite will not have a softer shot than the G5. The Elite has a bit of a snap to its shot feel. I also believe that the G5 has better ergos than the Elite (not by much) but better. The best feature on the Elite is the trigger, the worst feature is its bolt. The bolt doesn't have any o-rings and it allows air to flow out of both eye-covers and believe that if it had o-rings it would be much more efficient at consistently propelling the ball. Overall the Elite is a great marker with a lot of great features, but it isn't as refined as I would've initially hoped it to be.

Last thing about the trigger, make sure to not over tighten the cone screws that hold it in place. If you over tighten them you run the risk of damaging the ball bearings. This can cause the trigger to sit improperly and make for a very difficult marker to shoot.

Would recommend the G5 over the elite. You can buy the specr and the fancy case separately for less than the elite.

I have both the originally G5 and the Fusion Elite, I enjoy using both of them. The ergonomics of the G5 is better to me, cause I do prefer a none stack-tube poppet but I like the shot better out of my fully tuned Fusion Elite. If it is your first electro, I'd recommend the G5 Spec-R or the regular G5. There's just a lot you can do to the Fusion Elite in a good way.....and a bad way. I've had to help a few players with their's before but I still enjoy my Fusion Elite. The G5 is a great little shooter, I've played many a big game and tourney with mine. I've used mine so much that I'm actually going to APE mine out instead of purchasing the Spec-R version.

Pros- it's tighter than it was single

Cons- sometimes you slap one another.
