The only thing I agree with, is including one carbon fiber back.. I don't care about a kit..

the lux doesn't come with a kit.

Kits are over rated. Ive been using a Ti 690, and haven noticed a lick of difference in accuracy, get good chrono readings and can still shoot 8-9 pods.

But they should have made the back the new top-o-the-line CF back.
As for the board, I bought a yakuza specifically for the fact that I change my settings 3 times a week. Three tournament series, each with different ROF and mode rules. Plus any time I play PSP, and I have a mode specifically for rec ball.
I believe the stock UL board is far beneath my needs, and wouldn't even turn the gun on with it in there.

Dye also shipped all the dm9s with a .692 back. That is somewhat large for the average paintball. I shoot XO which usually rolls thru a .684.

exactly why a kit is necessary. sometimes I get paint that flies to a .682 insert and sometimes I get some that is tight in a .690....

have any of you even shot/held one of these guns yet?

i have one, attended the tech class and I think it warrants the high pricetag. It's a new platform that took 3 year to make apparently.

Personally I always use my trusty old school cp barrel and would prefer that they keep costs down and not include a huge barrel kit. same with an oled. These are things that only some people want, while others would prefer not to have to pay for.

Whats even worse is the back doesnt match. This gun is new and being sold on ebay. Look at the back, its dust. The gun is polished.

It dosent match because they did patchwork for the nt's. the barrel back, bolt cap, ul frame and hyper 3 are dust, and the body, barrel tip, feedneck, and on/off are gloss. its the same pattern as the 2 colored nt's this is just black and black but its gloss black and dust black. (were as the the 1st set of parts i listed would be graphite and the the 2nd set of parts i listed would be navy for that color of nt)

It looks ridiculous on a one color gun. Making the parts dust saves dye money. You see less flaws and the polishing process usually cost more.

Did it cross anybody's mind that they may be waiting to include the carbon fiber UL back with an Ironman edition NT (assuming they make one)?

ThatGuy86 has a valid point. The same reason they didn't make drastic changes for every new DM. I'm sure they could have made it straight from the DM6 to the DM9 if they wanted to, but then they wouldn't have made as much money.

and yet both of those shoot through a .690 even if the paint was tight in a .695 it would still shoot through a .690

We had thought about including different backs with the NT, but it would have made for a higher cost. We wanted to deliver the best paintball marker possible at a competitive price.
We have also thought about barrel kits but most people only use one back or barrel since paint has become better now, then it used too. We found in testing that the length of the back improves the efficiency far more than the bore size. That is why we made the CF barrel an inch longer.

the back is dust just like the frame, would be to much polish

Thanks for the reply...
will we have the opportunity to order an NT without a UL barrel?-sort of an upgraded version. I kinda think that an order system like dell uses on thier website would be very cool way to offer what a customer wants without anything we don't.

Get a Geo with the new ST kit that's coming out and save $700. Sick looking gun though, definitely been looking at them all night. GJ Dye.
