cuz of bad marketing, the luxe has already made more of an impression on the paintball community then the nerve ever did.

basically i think i heard one kid say theyve actually held the gun . everyone else said they like the look , one said its the future of paintball (whatever bull**** that is ) . youre going to spend $1500 on this gun ? youre all falling for the hype and this is exactly what sp wants you to do . they came out with this whole new thing because its a new marketing campaign and MAY be a last sad attempt to save themselves. because lets face it , no one likes smart parts . you may like shockers (many dont) , but the company and customer service is horrible. youre like all the kids who camped out 3 days for the iphone when in 75% of the stores didnt sell out the first day . dont believe the hype


btw

Im curious, since when did anyone care about efficiency. If efficiency and easy upkeep really mattered that much, wouldnt we all be shooting vikings?

Now the luxe one minute i hear its the future now i hear it says voice comands to change the bord modes somteimes u have to say to ur self paintball is not ****** star trek now is it. The price will drop like a fly with in the next year wat goes up must come down.the luxe looks beutiful but is not on the field. The shocker died out bcoz it now to old to play with and keep up with other guns like egos. if store have to sell a ton of them there gona say **** egos r better and they cost less. If u cnt put them on the internet ur sqrewed coz thats the future wat r they gona do put them in a catalog or on a bill bord. HELL' NO. This a sad attempt to come back that has already failed like a nerd tryin to **** up a cheer leading squad.

If you ever want people to take you seriously you're going to have to learn how to convey a clear and coherent message.

Right now I think you're stupid, and I won't waste my time trying to decipher the code you used to see if theres a valid point to what you have to say.

yes, somebody please do tell me why on earth will you buy it at this price range? can't quite believe right now that it shoots like $1000 better than my IQ, or $1000 better than my NXT... I'd rather wait for a DM9...

Really that's your call bro. but The Pl NXT's, DM8's, SL8R's, SL74's all had high price tags when they came out. But you can't fault anyone from wanting this gun. I think it will be a refreshing change if pace.

Oh I know they all have high price tags, believe me I do, but this one seems to be more on the SL8R range, and it's not even a PL... and I'm not faulting anyone for wanting it, as a matter of fact I would want it too if it was more reasonably priced (I might be a gun whore, but I don't like to feel ripped off)... especially under the light of all the competition they'll be facing with lots of great shooting guns available for a fraction of its price... and the whole deal with the maxflo to me it'd be more of an annoying thing to deal with than anything else...and seriously, who'd pay close to $300 just for a maxflo, especially if it doesn't come with the tank, like it seems to be the case... I hope you won't be disappointed and it's all you expect it to be, but imo it's not innovation when you put together features that were available in other markers before, it's just an interpretation, and so far I haven't seen or heard anything really new about this marker, just features that were previously introduced on other platforms... nice, but not really worth the price tag imo, no matter how you spin it...

So far, I'm digging the Luxe except the price (obviously) and the speaker actually. For some reason, the fact that it has a speaker just puts me off.

The way i see it is this happens all the time in paintball, you have a company who makes a high end gun, the Ego lines. On the other end you have another company that comes out with a totally different gun, trying to give people more options for a high end gun.

I like how people sit there and say, "if your going to pay 1500$ for a luxe might as well get an up'd ego" cause yes i wanna shoot the same high end gun as everyone else.

the SL8r is price near the 2000$ mark, and people except that right away because its by a trusted company so hell i might as well just spend that money on a gun that surely will make me stand out and be a better player.

and uh correct me if im wrong, how can you compare anything to the luxe when im sure 95% of the people posting on this forum havent even shoot one yet... i love how biased people are these days...

i cant wait to see people start saying why pay close to 2000$ for a sl8r when a luxe shoots just as good...

I think a lot of us would be, but... well you know the story.




Anyone else think the speaker will be seriously inferior to LED or OLED?


If this thing shoots a 1800-2000 on a 68/45 and has MUCH BETTER reliability than a Shocker it might sell.
