Nerve anyone?

I'm pretty sure it was $600 after the initial price. And, the big reason it had that $1100 pricetag was because it had ramping that you couldn't turn off that was "secret". In fact, it was the same scam as the Turbo Shocker (I think that was it's name) that came with a burst mode programmed in.

hey I'm not a big fan of smart parts, but look and the bright side with the LUXE, if it's loud enough in a game if someone trys to cheat and change modes the refs will hear it

but overall i think it's just a fancy looking shocker that's a little more efficient

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.
explain how egos are crap when they are more efficient, rarely ever break down, and need very litle mantinence

I DON'T plan on getting a luxe. It doesn't seem that much better than any other gun out there. It's also a smart parts product. Another reason I will never get a luxe. Everything made by smartparts is crap in my opinion. I would rather spend my money on something that will work all the time and not break down like a smart parts gun.

If they could still be bought...I'm sure things would be much different...In fact due to some research, I believe(AKA people can correct me if I'm wrong) that the ego design was based off of AKA's Evil M.

Then, when AKA had to quit producing markers, PE took advantage of their new opportunity.......it is now called the Ego.

I for one do care about efficiency. My most inefficient gun gets ~1700 off a 68/45 AND it's a spooler. Not to mention it cost me nearly half of what the Luxe costs and it's more reliable than a shocker. From what I have seen in the pictures it is a slightly redesigned shocker, not too impressive for the price. Not to mention, the speaker is quite a bad idea IMO. With time the speaker will blow rendering it useless and the speaker is going to draw more electricity than an OLED or LED causing poor battery life.

put it this way ...

my Emag field strips much faster than the luxe
my Emag will never have a problem more oil wont fix
my Emag will never, ever, ever break a single paintball, ever, period.
my Emag has a smaller profile
my Emag gets the same or better shots per tank
my 6 year old Emag is worth as much as a brand new luxe

and i got it in a trade for a excal

or course this all assuming i would actually play with an electro of any type ...

if your looking for mags, mcarterbrown and automags.org are the place to go. dont expect one cheap tho. amazing machines though, the philosophical differences with WGP and the autococker platform are very interesting IMO. as a student of mechanical design and an owner of both, i enjoy each for there own uniqueness. cockers are unquestionably more fun to shoot, but mags are unquestionably better performing, esp if your talking electro.

I got to see one today, it was amazing!
This gun is really well thought out, and i can't wait to acutally shoot one.

I think it's really cool that someone built an amazing gun without compromise...


I would like to get one if they made on all black!


Note: i don't know what the barrel is made of, but it's redicilously light.

This gun is sick!
