Ego 11 or Dm12

I have an ego 11 with 6 cases in it and is like brand new. I was offered a trade for a Dm12 with 5 cases in it, so each are flawless. I also have to add 100$. I was just curious what all of your opinions were on the trade. I had an NT and loved it. I haven't shot a DM before but here they are very smooth.
Thanks!

Two quality markers coming from manufacturers that put out a new model nearly every year. They both are going to lose resale at similar paces. I'd do it if I really wanted a DM and wouldn't if I really wanted the Ego. The features of each are fairly different. You have to ask which set of features is more attractive and go with that.

adding 100$ id give it a no.
Value wise they are pretty much the same. No one should add.

They are both good markers. It really come down to personall prefernce.

Definitely don't add. Seen plenty of DM12's go for $600-700, which is about where Ego11's are.

Agreed, they're usually both around $650
Either trade straight, or find someone else who wants to trade

So I have a new offer. A brand new dm12 still in the wrapping and everything for my ego and 200$ they are selling for 1050 ish new like that so I see I'm getting it at 850 so 200$ off a new gun. Is that a better deal? Keep in mind I do like spoolies after having a poppet. Also it is tiger lime color scheme.

I wouldn't do that deal. It just means you take the hit on value once you use it. Even then, I've seen BNIB DM12's go for less. If you're getting up to that price range, trade your Ego and cash towards a Clone GT. It's smoother and quieter than a DM, plus super efficient. My GT is actually smoother and quieter than my teammates Luxe. You can find used GT's for $800-900 all the time.

I agree on the clone gt... Personally, I really like DMs but they're falling behind the curve.

PE doesn't do that anymore. The Ego11 came out end of 2010. LV1 dropped almost mid 2013. Dye is the only company left doing yearly releases

TBH I find the newer Dye markers just feel cheap for the price too. I guess the milling just isnt my thing, it doesnt seem classy and actually aesthetically pleasing like DLX, PE, BLAST, etc.

Someone needs to light a fire under their ***** and wake them the hell up. Every other company is pushing to make real advancements in their products and its like Dye is just dragging on doing the same ol same.

Just like everyone has said, just choose whichever gun you like the feel of basically. Defiantly don't add $100.

He should add 0-ish. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada!
Straight trade or the DM owner should add.

A brand new Ego11 and a brand new DM12 cost the same thing; $995. As PE just dropped the LV1 there isn't going to be another Ego out for a few years. So the resale of the Ego11 is going to pretty much remain the same for a while. Dye however.....you can pretty much rest assured that a new DM14 is only about 3 months away (World Cup) as they continue to do their yearly releases. When that happens the value of the DM12 is going to significantly drop. So its not worth it for you to add $100 towards a marker that is only a few months away from taking a value drop.
