and ego's are crap. He knows that, i know that. Not to mention being smart parts sponsored he wouldnt go for a ego

I plan on getting one of these. Why? Just plain and simple to try out, did that with the droid, took the chance for what little reball shooting i did with it i loved it. Time to move on. What i hope to get out of it is a top notch customer support, great warranty, A gun that performs as good or better then the "best". If it gets anywhere near the efficiency of the droid ill be very happy.

I'm getting one just cuz of how it looks, every time I look at the pics, "Ferrari" just comes to mind. The last time a gun blew me away from it's looks was the DM6.

Yea, considering one is a yummy fruit, and one is the act of striking the ground with the leading foot to frighten, distract, or mislead one's opponent (in fencing).

I'm considering one because when I look at it, I see the future of paintball. Quick disassembly so easy a pre-pubescent monkey could perform maintenance in a minute, a speaker so the gun can TALK to you, no outside air hosing (still relatively new to the sport), compact, and light. Efficiency, I don't know yet, hasn't been released as far as I know, but I can work with that.

hehe, nerd pwned

Only 1200 off a 68/45? Kinda dissapointing to me, not that I really planned on getting one.

droids ftw. macdev breeds win. most paint from a 68/45 ever.

why spend 1500 on this when you could buy a BRAND NEW team (infamous, hurricanes) SL74?

ego's > this

Last time Smart Parts released a $1100+ gun it was $400 within a year

Nerve anyone?

It is a smart parts partnership. It is like Dye and Proto, I am getting one because it combines all of the positive aspects of today's high-end's into one, sexy, sleek package.

I can't say I'm buying one, I just don't have that kind of scratch, all the extra cash I've got is what keeps me on the field...

That said, looking at the stats and the pics only, I'm envious. It's the old, "If I had a better job, lower rent, didn't have to pay taxes..." bit. I'd have to get one in my hands to see just how much of an improvement it is over my shocker but I've got a feeling it's going to be impressive.

I'm also interested in seeing exactly what is going to go on with the dealers and their ordering process. It seems like they've set it so that every customer has a solid place to go for tech work. A pretty interesting concept, insures an expert opinion on any issues, not just some kid guessing he knows whats wrong.
