How does the Geo feel ?

Some people that have shoot it allready are buisy in various boards.
So i'll post some stuff that we have published in other threads, but makes sense to be here too.

On the other side there was the Geo. A new very cool marker which suited me right from the start.
Maybe its just because its new. But if i had to decide which i would play on the field i might choose the Geo. Don't we all like to play around with new toys ?

It is surprising how similar both marker are in some ways.
Even they work different.

The Geo might need slightly more maintenance then the Ego9 and shoots about a pod less then the Ego9. On the other side it is lighter, less parts to maintain and you can strip it without any tools in seconds.

So both markers are really great.

As always it is best to shoot them side by side and decide afterwards.
But you really can't go wrong with either one.

I played both guns with coyut & co 2 weeks ago and I still can't say wich one I like more to play. Damn, I had to change my mind about spoolers. Damn, I have to get both...

When I shot the Ego, I thought "This is it". As soon as I shot the GEO I changed my mind. This might not have been so bad if I only did it once, but I went through the motions twice. I felt like a girl trying to pick the right shoes with an outfit......

Thanks for the opinions. I feel just like Snypi where I'd given up on spoolies and love the feel of Egos. Now I have to give spoolies 1 more chance. I'm really hoping I don't like it. Just like when I went to go try out an 05 Ego - I was really hoping I didn't like it since I didn't want to spend the money. But after shooting it . . . well, we all know how that turned out.

Good morning

The sound and kick of the ego9 is much much lower then what you probably would expect.
This has to do with the fact that the rammer and bolt have come much more together. Also the new set 160psi pressure helps to reduce kick and sound.

If i had to choose between the SL8r and the Ego9 out of a performance view the Ego9 would be the clear winner.
I still prefer the SL8r frame over the one of the Ego9 but the Ego9 is a great evolution over the past versions.

Now you asked me about the soundsignature.
Well this sounds strange but the Ego9 is not much louder then the Geo. This does not mean the Geo is loud. It rather tells you that the Ego9 got very quiet compared to previous versions.
They still are loud when shoot without balls like most other markers. But with balls it's really great what Jack and Steve have developed.
I have not tried them with other barrels yet.
But as the Shaft 3 barrels are very light i would belive that with a boomie stick you could get them even quieter.

Alot of people who write..ohh just anotehr ego...will be very surprised when they shoot one for the first time.

lets not coin it the GEO9 cause then they'll try to make a new one every year. I like PE guns, but a new one every year is a bit much, I think.

Jack is a genious think about it, if you dont like the Geo you should be able to trade someone for an ego9 no problems and it would be straight up to boot so no bargaining. You know all the 09 owners will want to try a Geo so trading will be fun.

Im picking up my GEO at cup if I dont like it Illd trade or sell and get an 09

What I don't get is I already have a PERFECT marker, no really, it is PERFECT! I can 1ball a netting pole 3/4 down the field, grab a drink while other people queue for air and it has never let me down in any way and it is just a STOCK 07, doesnt even have a zick kit...

Yet, I CAN'T stop myself from buying not ONE but TWO new markers, which are supposed to be 'more perfect' then my current one. Normally this would be plain consumerism, however knowing myself and my shopping habits it clearly shows that this is a unique case...

My conclusion is we are already brain washed by the great quality and the reliability of PE. Just get them both and end your pain.

I bet Jack Wood can take a crap and sell it to us with some nice milling on it..

He could do it once maybe twice but afterwards the whole reputation of the company would be gone.
Planet always looks for quality and reliability. And that is what their name stays for.
