flip_ball owns a Planet Eclipse Etek
Luxe or Ego 09

Very hard decision

want the ego for it's easy maintenance, air effieciency, and PE's past reputation.

want luxe for it's speed, smooth shot, and accuracy.


dont want the ego for it's loudness

dont want the luxe for the fact that it's a spool valve and it's been
known that spooley's have a more difficult time in the maintenance
field.


Any pros and cons that I am be aware of?

It just depends what you like. Me personally I like to have a gun that I can pull out of my bag and shoot without having to worry about it breaking down so I got an ego 9. But luxes can be the same way with maintence. But I don't have time to work on a gun for a hour a day. No offence to luxe owners.

Either way your getting a high end gun. Price wise the ego is cheaper. The luxe is expensive but people will buy them full price because it's a fad. So do yourself a favor and shoot both and see which you like. Maybe you won't like either of them. Dm9s r super nice too.

Luxe without a doubt. And it only takes about 10 min to clean the luxe for regular maintenance.... Not an hour.

i see what you guys are saying about the luxe and i agree it has a great shot to it but personally i know that what ever happens my ego will not go down on me and if it were to i know that i could most likely fix it very quickly

The Luxe is actually very easy to maintain and shoots absolutely amazing (it's now my primary). Players, of course, have the air efficiency issue with the Luxe, but that's the nature of a spoolie. Can't say enough about Ego's though (Ego 08 is my back-up) because they shoot great, easy to maintain, and are already legendary as far as durability. However, you can forget about being stealth because the Ego is as loud as a cat fight.

Honestly, either way you can't go wrong. As usual, it all comes down to personal preference. So try them out, get a feel for which one works best for you, and hit the field.

Good Luck...

Guns

Shoot them both and that will help you make you decision. I shot a Luxe a few weeks ago and I personally prefer the Ego. One of my teammates traded a dm9 for a luxe and he shot it and didn't like it at all. He ended up trading it for a dm8 and likes that better then the luxe. It all comes down to personal preference though. Another guy on my team has a SL8er and I would rather have that over a luxe. Just my opinion and experience.
No offense luxe owners. It's an amazing gun..
