Trading a CSL for SL74 is it a good idea? Need other People's Views

Hey everybody I've been looking at infamous sl74's with the Johnny Cash on it. (sadly can't find any George Bush's lol) I don't have the money to pay for one so I was thinking of doing a trade. Would this be a stupid decision and also can any body do a a pro and con of each. I really like my CSL but I've been wanting a infamous ego ever since I started paintballing. Any views on the topic would be nice.

As much as I like the SL74s I would say it would be a downgrade. You would lose your adjustable solenoid, SL3 reg, SL Shaft4 kit with the tips, POPS Asa, bigger screen, smoothness and DART kit. Honestly I think what people are asking for those Infamous SL74 Egos is outrageous, but maybe that's just me, also I'm assuming you're talking about one with different color accents. Ultimately it is up to you, but I wouldn't do it.

Yea I really liked them, they were the first paintball gun I ever saw but I realize that it would be a downgrade , that's the thing I don't understand way there so expensive I could see if it was a George Bush Ego but not the Johnny Cash. Maybe I'll just save up for one down the line.

I would make him add a good amount to go with it. I'm also assuming it would be a rougher shot then the CSL.

Perfect.

Stick with the CSL. They are amazing guns. Those Sl74s are nice looking but by asking that price is just idiotic. MAYBE if it only added a 100 or so then that may be considered reasonable. I don't see it that way. It will always be an Sl74 no matter what it looks like, so it will always shoot like one. Well, unless you do so modifications.

I would def ask for cash to be added and as I am not so familiar with older ego's what upgrades are you speaking of???

There really isn't anything that would make that SL74 shoot as good as your CSL. They are great guns don't get me wrong, but the adjustable noid and the ergonomics of the CSL are that much better.
IMO you'll kick yourself if you get rid of your CSL for a SL74, even if it is rare.
Really though the Johnny cash guns aren't that rare (as far as # made).
I'm with the others the price on those guns is MENTAL. You are better off saving for one and picking it up in addition to your CSL.

Alright thanks to everyone's opinion I guess I'm going to try and save up for one then and I to think the price is a little nuts but it's help good teams lose ;D Lol
Hopefully someone just got that reference but thanks everyone.

Do. Not. Do. It!!!!

You are better off just waiting and saving then downgrading your marker like that. Your CSL is still worth over $1000 while the SL74 is barely $500. Hell the two barrel CF tips alone can sell for almost the price of the SL74 you want.

Sorry one more pimp slap for you! If the infamous sl74 was like the sl91, I could see looking into one for the sheer purpose of owning a piece of paintball history...however lasering is not the epitome of custom paintball...the anno and lasering do look great, and they are kind of neat looking...just not neat enough to go back to 4-5 year old technology for...the price is ridiculous on these as well, even from a nostalgic point of view...and most have re-anno'd parts to boot...I could see asking the price for a minty fresh one...your csl is amazing...be happy you have her you lucky duck!

*leap frogging off your post*

And if the laser job from that SL74 is that big of a deal to you then you could always have a similar laser job done to your CSL. BAM!!!! Now you still have the better tech AND the artwork

See the only thing with lasering/annoing my CSL is I feel if I did that it would kinda just be a copy and everyone would be like "wow way not to buy an original" or "wow trying to be a limited edition" or they would just say something because I tried to copy it. I thought about doing that to my CSL I was thinking either infamous or fluffy bunny but then I realized I would just be a copier and not original.

So you figured downgrading to an SL74 would be better because your peers would respect its originality? It's starting to sound like you are more concerned about being seen.

But honestly, it's your marker and you can trade it for whatever you like BUT be warned.....as with everything in life that excitement of owning that limited edition ano/laser will wear off. You will eventually look at it as just another marker and begin to compare its performance to the CSL you gave up. Mark my words.

No I'm not saying my decision will be based off my peers, it's just I would feel like putting a anno already done on to my CSL would be unoriginal and that I'm just trying to be a copier for example how would you feel if I put the George Bush Infamous Ego on my CSL. It would seem that if everyone could do that these special anno's wouldnt be so special anymore.

I agree...and **** what other people think...I'd personally cream my pants to see a CSL with that laser engraving (and if the anno payed homeage as well!) Sorry, I wasn't trying to be a dick....you'll just miss that CSL for sure, and like Soul said, the luster will wear off of that anno/lasering, and you'll be wondering why you didn't just buy a regular SL74 instead. I'm all for the copycat CSL!!! It'll be a one of a kind...to hell with the haters!

no worries you were just trying to make a point, and maybe I will looking into annoing/lasering my CSL for George Bush.....it would be one bad*** marker.

For a gun you play with a lot the CSL will have better ergonomics and shoot better. I wouldn't do the trade.

A standard SL74 for like $500 would be a good gun to play with here and there. I wouldn't wanna be ground pounding with a good condition Infamous '74.

I actually use my Geo 2.1 for all tourney and practices and then sometimes whip out the CSL at practice and rec play. It's mostly my back up because I don't wanna mess it up to bad, i'm either going to save up for the infamous sl4 or get my CSL lasered
