Bob Long n00b Info

So I'm fairly well-versed on the Ego/MacDev style of markers as well as the low-end Tippmann/Spyder stuff but I'm clueless when it comes to BL guns.

My question is, can anyone give me a basic run-down on the differences between the Marq/Closer/Rapper/Vice? As I recall, they all came out about the same time and I really haven't had a chance to mess around with them at all. However, I like to be informed and I recently realized that I was clueless about BL markers and would like to fix that.

I appreciate any info you guys can offer me.

My apologies. I saw that thread title as a Marq sticky and thought it was just Marq specific. Thank you.

EDIT: That was very helpful. Where does the Vice come in? I know it's still a poppet valve marker but other than that, what makes it different from the Marq line?

Since you've owned egos and such its not a big move to BL guns.

the vice and ego are very similar since the ego is an intimidator clone.

The difference with the Marqs are weight, milling and upgrades on the gun. That's about it. The firing engine mechanism is the same for all, so you can use any engine from any marq, as long as you have the correct back cap.
