I haven't finished watching it yet, but it was a fun watch. Its very over the top like most of Robert Rodriguez's movies blood, over the top violence and nudity.
Definitely amusing and easily worth a rental if you dig action flicks.

I love Robert Rodriguez. "Planet Terror" (even though how dreadfully awful it is) is one of my favorite movies.

I like watching a lot of his movies even if they are awful. If you haven't, check out From Dusk Til Dawn. I loved that one.

Like I said, I could be wrong. Maybe Brent knows more or the real story...?
All those guns you mentioned are crap. They really dropped the ball on everything after the Fusion and Threshold. In those days their products were OK for the price and the service was very good.

The G3 was just a cheap gun made to a price point. The REV-i was a repackaged version of the same Threshold/G3 drivetrain and sold for double after over a year of waiting for it to come out.

See above. I was a tester up through the release of the G3 and then jumped ship because it was obvious things were going downhill fast.

As far as the G3 being "bad" I'm not going to even start, not worth it man. Anyways, it's not like Dye or Planet Eclipse has never had any problems...*cough-Nt-cough-Geo-cough-Ego 09-cough*
G3 is crap. No way around it. No DP gun even comes close to the quality of an Eclipse gun. This is obvious the first time you pick it up and completely unmistakable after you work on the gun.

As far as customer service goes, Eclipse can't be beat. I've had good luck with Empire as well. Dye is completely worthless. I wouldn't shoot one of their guns even if I did like it better, just because of their lack of service.

I had the same problem, I've heard they are getting better, but we'll have to see if its just a blip or a real trend.

Kee / Empire and Eclipse have always had top notch service, and hopefully will continue the trend into the future.

i have always had GREAT service from any company I have dealt with, with the exception of the aforementioned dangerous "can't do a damn thing right" power. PE and DYE have always been great when I need something or have to talk to them for MN Pro.

DYE was great for us when Zyzek was our sales/service rep. When he left to work at DYE Europe (if I remember correctly) we got a new rep that was HORRIBLE at her job. She dropped the ball on 90% of our RMA items and messed up a lot of our orders. She got fired and things have been getting better since then. This could be the reason you guys had bad service as well, just a guess though.

PE, well, is PE. Nicky T has hooked me up fat more than once. I have sent multiple emails back and forth with him and he is a great guy. This is a company that goes above and beyond to make sure people get what they want. I wish more companies treated their companies like PE does...
