Efficient?

I have heard a lot of talk about the Luxe but I'm still curious on how efficient it is. Seeing how I have owned a lot of different smartparts guns and it seems like the more you pay for the gun the less efficient it is. Can some one tell me what the operating pressure is or how many shots you can get out of a 68/4500 with a Luxe?

Why is a 08 Ego Twice as expensive as a shocker and 3 times as efficient then?

Something is up with your Droid if it's getting those efficiency numbers. The Droid should be getting about 1700+.

That sounds like terrible efficiency all around, even for the Droid which is known to be pretty good on air. I'm pretty sure you may need to set some things up differently considering I've gotten 7 pods and a hopper out of an NXT at 290fps. I didn't do anything special to the gun, just set dwell to 14 and let it roll.

thanks guys, It still doesn't seem like it compares to the egos. Which is sad. I own a NXT now and I can get about 4 pods and a hopper and I'll be at 1k out of a 45/45. I don't like to count past 1k because there not good shots. I get drop of once I get below 1k.

the very indepth and comprehensive review of a Luxe on the german forum got 1500+ shots from a 68/4500 fill, out of the box.

which would equal roughly 800-900 shots at least from a 45/45, its not a case, but its not exactly numbers that should have anyone using this for x-ball worrying.
