There likely will be, but there is no timeframe that has been released from PE. Nothing to go on at this time, sorry!

Key word is normally......they have said they want to get away from the yearly releases so I look for them to possibly throw us a loop in 2010.

The new GEO will have target acquisition lasers and an ability to shoot through walls. It also has a special coating of female attractor on it...so any female near a user of it will fall instantly in love...with the gun...

why?

while the gun whore in me is rejecting this post, why make a new geo?

other than milling (which i love) you cant really improve much on the total design. PE did what they saw as the only necessary improvement on the geo by making the ST bolt. i think with the exception of upgrades (or upgrade, as the only really beneficial one would be an even more efficient bolt) the geo is pretty solid.

lets face it geo owners, we have a kickless, accurate, light, fast, easy to maintain, and passably efficient marker. we may be at the top of the totem pole when it comes to the geo

Doubtful. Look at the past Ego's from the Ego7 up to the Ego9. Up till Planet released the plank kit, most people considered them all the same marker with different milling. Having shot them all, I think they all feel nearly identical in the hands and shoot the same.


I'm gonna venture that the new Geo isn't going to be radically different than the current one. Some new colors, maybe a stock ST kit, new trigger possibly, new milling, but it'll shoot the same.



Just look at the DM9/10, same gun, but marketing gets little kids to con their parents into shelling out the bones to buy it for them

Only the ignorant or misinformed people thought that. The ones who don't know what the new features/improvements are or can't process what they do.

They may perhaps shoot and feel somewhat similar, but that ignores a lot of internal changes - different triggers, different LPRs, different HPRs, different valves, different rammers, different bolts, different boards, different solenoids, different QEV configurations (or lack thereof), etc.

A lot of people do see the Egos as being very much the same - that's true enough - but that is because they don't look beyond the fact that it is an Ego (which it can't really help.....), which is all that seems to matter to some people. The assumption is that it is an Ego, therefore it is the same as every other Ego. You might as well add in to that statement that it is going to be loud and it is going to kick, because that is what a lot of people think.

OK, in so much as every Ego has been a rammer and poppet operated marker, they are the same, but then there are a lot of rammer and poppet markers out there that aren't Egos. Not to mention that if it wasn't a rammer and poppet marker, it wouldn't be an Ego anyway, and we wouldn't be having this conversation. Once you settle on the basic operating principle of the marker, that does somewhat limit just how different it can be from another marker employing the exact same operating system. There are always going to be some similarities between Egos, by their very nature. So what do you call a marker with many of the features of an Ego, but without the rammer and poppet operation..... a Geo. It's different to an Ego, because it's not an Ego.

So, yes some people do seem to think that all Egos are just the same marker with a new milling job every year, but that isn't the case - changes have occurred each year. OK, some of the changes are more evolutionary than revolutionary, but there are none the less genuine changes. Not seeing that there are genuine differences from year to year seems to me to be not looking passed the name badge.

Thats what people said about the Ego 7, 8, 9, 10 etc....Eclipse has a proven track record of making improvements and striving for the best and most reliable markers out there.

$20 says PE can engineer a Gen 2 Geo that is an improvement over the current offering.

Look at what they have done with the GR-2 and ST kits. Have faith, Jack is one hell of an engineer.
