These include: DM3,4,C,6,7, Droid, Shocker SFT, NXT, PMR,5 so on and so on.

I've shot many of poppets too all the Ego's, and Bob Long's....ect ect and they all feel or appear like they have a flatter trajectory.

THE ONLY EXCEPTION to the spool valve is the FEP Quest, to me it felt like it had a noticeably flatter trajectory than other spool valves.
That's kind of surprising, I've always experienced it the other way around..
Anyways, looks pretty slick.. Does look to have a decent deal of kick.. Given that it's pretty light also.

Just one port, it's offset to the side to allow space for the trigger microswitch and such.
I'll get a picture later if nobody else does.

If you look at the pictures of the grip frame, you'll notice the left side (speaker side) has a slightly smaller opening than the right side of the frame. The front part has more metal showing to the outside. I would take an educated guess that this is the location of the air port. ALSO it doesn't have to be that big. Look at the inside radius of your macro line, it's not that huge either, but the outside of it does because it needs to be so thick to hold the pressure going inside it. The airport is milled into the frame so thus it doesn't have to be as thick on the outside because it's aluminum. Aluminum is stronger than macroline.

Looks jsut like the internals of a shocker. Also, how does the air get to the gun? I don't see any hosing or macro.

It may look similar, but there are differences(I would like to see some more detailed pics though). As for the air getting to the gun, read a little and you will find the answer.

This is probably the one case where the visible eye will actually make a performance differnece. The eyes are very similar to a NXT set, however the use of visible light actually makes them perform better than the NXT infrared eyes. They sometimes have issues with "overexposure" when too much light enters the chamber and allows the detector to see "around" the ball. Luxe uses a visible emitter which is significatnly less bright, eliminating that horrid problem.

I must admit i didn't like the Luxe at first,but i'm slowly coming around to the idea of getting one when they are imported into the uk,not really a big fan of the rechargable battery,reminds me of the old LED/LCD angels which were always a pain to get charged from a car charger on your way to a tourny.

I presumed that the rechargable battery thing had died a death with the older angels. I never liked the idea it only restricts where and when you can charge up your marker,and it'll only run out of juice when you least want it to. DLX should have stuck with the trusty 9volt,maybe it was a operational power issue.



But then again up to 24,000 shots from a full charge...I can forgive them

Thank god that at least they didn't try proprietary non-rechargeable battery packs again like in the old school Shockers.
