New style MVP?

A guy at my field was saying that he has seen some places discounting the Bob long mvp (though I haven't seen any) and that he thinks there is a new version 2 of the mvp with the original quirks worked out that will drop at cup or next years pbe.

I don't follow things that closely but is there any truth to this or is it just speculation? Just heard him jawing about it and it got my attention so I listened in, super curious.

Not that I know of. There were some places selling the MVP pretty cheaply dating back to a year + ago simply to get rid of them. I don't see a new pump on the horizon but you never know. The only "quirks" with the original was that it made a farting noise like a lot of pumps do. You won't find any issues aside from that and even that one has nothing to do with performance.

And the marker cocking before the bolt clears the feedneck.

Would love if this were true, based on the resources put into the MVP since launch, doubtful.

It does seem like blast has abandoned the MVP but it seems that way to me for all of their markers. Like they churn out one, people buy it and then they undercut it a couple months later with another version of nearly the same marker.

I think the MVP has been popular and is pretty cool, fix the cocking point issue and the farting and maybe a new milling style, bang! Fresh revenue stream. Make it $699 and reduce the old version to $550 and I think both would be popular

Don't know how big the pump market is compared to the regular speedball market. Not sure if the time and tooling needed to update the MVP justifies the expected time before Bob sees a profit.

Interesting. I wasn't aware of that and didn't notice it with the one I tried. I guess I wasn't short stroking the pump arm. I can definitely see that being an issue though.
