Anyone have an Eos yet?

I have seen them on certain paintball sites and such f/s, and I was wondering if they would be a nice choice for a new gun. Basically if anyone has one, would you explain how it performs and such, and I've never seen one shoot.

I have seen one at my local field that was for sale brand new that the owner had gotten as a promo and basically it's a bob with a new body epiphany, much better looking than the epiph, but still one none the less

I really hope it turns out better than an Epip. The Ion sold well because it was fast and cheap, along with being a true EP. I hope they made improvements that really warrant the extra $ now.

They include just enough features to keep a noob happy, but not enough to keep you from buying upgrades - which they hope you'll buy from them.

Just normal business.

It's just another ION/Epiph, right? That's what it looks like anyway.

Paint chipping after two days is lame 4rl. Send that pos back. Wait, what's the body made out of that it's painted?

Paint chips just make your marker all that more different than the others.

Thats a good point. Originality is key, and maybe it'll start a trend where everybody chips their paint off. Then everybody can be original too!!

Smart Parts Eos

We've asked a ton of players and dealers what they wanted in the Epiphany. We've listened to the comments and suggestions to create the EOS. The Eos is lighter but still has that awesome grip frame and the perfect trigger. The players wanted a q-lock, so that is also stock along with the matching Freak Jr. barrel. Our new markers are also coming stock with our Max-Flo R Regulator. The R stands for Relief Valve. Our customers asked for easier cleaning and disassembly so we made the Eos bolt-out-back. And it looks sweet!

I loved the look of the Epiphany, but I can't take my eye off the EOS when walking through the factory.

I haven't heard of any chipping or flaking, but if you can, please send us pictures or the body back to the factory. If this is really happening, I will take care of it for you. Any other feedback would be great. If you guys ever need anything, you can either catch me on here or by e-mailing me. My contact info is below.

Tootles!

It is a chroming process. Send it in. We would like to see, and we will take care of it.



EDIT: Rebecca beat me... lol

So the EOS needs higher input pressure, and so has a new Max flo reg, the Vibe also has this reg, but the ION XE doesnt, seems a bit harsh that far cheaper gun gets the newer reg which would take one component out of the equation when upgrading to EOS standards on the ION XE
