Look at what they have done with the GR-2 and ST kits. Have faith, Jack is one hell of an engineer.
the GR-2 and GST kits are upgrades to a pre-existing marker and not a new one. dont get me wrong, id LOVE a better geo, but i find it unnecessary other than efficiency.

as for strives, after reading full specs, i find very little has changed between the ego 9 and ego 10 other than including pre-existing upgrades.

for everyone that may think im flaming, i LOVE PE and my geo. i just dont think a gun every year is necessary.

I've read enough to believe that it's more than just "little changes" between the 9 and 10.

It's pretty amazing how something as quick and easy as the GST kit can completely change how a gun shoots/feels.

It's already been more than a year. I think it's safe to say that the Geo is NOT on a 12 month product cycle.

I agree. The 09 and 10 shoot completely differently. Once of the best single year steps up since the 06 to 07.

I got to shoot a '10 a few weeks ago. If they can make a new Geo shoot that much better than the original, sign my *** up NOW for one!!!!!!

I think something new is coming out soon, that may not be a completely new geo but I have to think something is goning to happen soon. The PE website has very few geos left for purchase. (mostly team guns/limited editions, not many stock ones.)

Looking at the history of marker manufacturers, I would say most companies that release a yearly marker don't seem to have many revolutionary changes, and we see the evolutionary changes as Uzi mentioned.

No matter how much I like to see what all of the gun manufacturers have been up to every year, I think there are other ways to show case it than a completely new marker, I like seeing a new gun every year as a "whoa the new milling is cool" or ooh new colors, but I think going to a cycle where we see a new gun maybe every 24 months would be a lot easier on players pockets.
I personally like buying a gun every generation to have the new technology, but it would be nice if that technology was on a longer life span than 12 months. say maybe 24 months...


Just my .02

wow... no one has even mentioned the information thrown out a while back about a new geo in the first quarter of 2010. i've been digging through the PE blog and news to link it but i can't find it.

and the GR2 wasn't an upgrade... it was a replacement. when it comes for free as a warranty item to the purchaser after the issue is realized and addressed and the purchaser registers his/her marker then it is not an upgrade... especially when GR2 is now in every geo sold by PE.

i'd like to see the new geo have a less swooped trigger frame as the new ego does. aside from that, i'll let jack do his business w/ the engineering.

'1 month', 'Feb' and 'Feb-March' are all within the first quarter of 2010, so it has indeed been mentioned.

My Friend, who also owns was told by someone from DSS they should be for sale by the end of Feb, although he was told MSRP was close to 1800. SO perhaps PE decided to manufacture produce a SL geo for the public? Thats just my assumption/hope

Then again, I heard nothing straight from the horse's mouth so it could have all been BS

The idea of it (new geo) being part of the SL series is just a guess, because correct me if Im wrong but isn't that the normal retail of a new SL marker? Im assuming that 1800 is quite a high price tag for a standard mass produced eclipse marker, new or not.

I would think of releasing a standard geo an SL geo at the same time would not be a smart a idea imo..

It'd be cool if they made the Geo Ten the same as the SL91, but for $1250 and available to everyone.

The colors initially released should be made to match the ten original SL91's

You miss quoted me, I meant an SL + new colors for the Geo that is out now. I wasn't too clear on that. Kind of like when they released the 2nd run of 09 colors and the SL94 . I imagine a new run of Geo's with ST kits plus new colors would create a lot of new sales. The old colors have become a bit dated I think.
