seeing some new colors would be good.

I think I would rather see more colors over an SL as it would sell more Geo's, the SL market is pretty small.......

I spoke to Brent at Air Assault when I called to pay for my Geo today, and inquired about a new Geo since Air Assault works pretty close with PE. He said it was supposed to be released this quarter but has been pushed back because Eclipse spent a good amount of time and effort with the Etek3 and hasn't had much time to do anything with the Geo.

i can almost gaurantee eclipse will make another geo, which i would guess would come out alongside the ego11

the reasons i think this is because they have a prototype soft tip bolt and why would there be a prototype if they werent trying to improve the gun

eclipse also hase alot of stuff they could add to the geo, no macro line, bigger oled, better tooless bolt removal like the luxe or victory, tooless eye plate removal or an eye pipe, cut away window like victory, and new milling, i doubt most of these ideas wont make it to production for years due to legality issues but basically what im saying is there is alot of room for improvement and eclipse will capitalize on that.

why would you remove the macro line? cause it gets in your way? cause the everyone else is doin it?

Toolless eyecovers - I've see Luxe every covers fly off @ world cup, I see them as more of a problem..

Eyepipe - meh not really a need as long as you are shooting good paint an your paint to bore is fine

I've never had an issue with having external macroline. Have an issue with it, and it is very quick and simple to replace. Have an issue with an internal air supply and you are taking your marker apart to fix it. It looks nicer, it's more ergonomic, but it isn't that practical. OK, you may never have an issue with the gas line, but if you did, I'd rather have macroline for the simple fix.

Planet markers actually use an LCD rather than an OLED. A larger LCD is almost a given, as both the Ego10 and SL91 Geo have larger LCD displays, so it is likely that future Egos, SLs and Geos will have this feature.

The Geo's bolt kit can already be removed without tools (as long as you don't tighten the Propshaft up too much), so I don't see any pressing need to change it. OK, it's not a quick release, but it gets the job done.

I actually like the concept of eye pipes, but in reality, they seem to cause as many problems as they solve. They are quite fragile and can crack quite easily.

As 96 Ls lnteg stated, like the eye pipes, the magnetic eye covers are another idea that sounds great in theory, but in practise, not so hot.

The soft tip bolts were one of the solutions that were being looked at to help resolve issues when firing Reballs - the smaller ball had a tendency to seal the tip of the bolt, creating a vacuum, and preventing the bolt from cycling. The soft tip was actually grooved around the edge to allow air to escape around the ball. The other solution that was looked at was to use a ported bolt. This second solution was preferred, and culminated in the release of the ST kit.

i do think planet could rework their tooless bolt removal to be faster and easier and personally i love the feel of a gun without a macro line but maybe thats just me and dont think im biased because i have a luxe i actually sold the luxe because i think the geo is a nicer gun overall

too bad you made your name luxelove hun? jk

I too got rid of my luxe in a hope to get a Geo. I actually traded it for an NT (Resale is much better then Luxe) then will compare all four markers (Ego 10, Luxe, Geo, NT) to determine which I like the most..

i agree it wouldnt be fair to sell it for cheaper to the public

i agree they could incorporate parts from the sl91 but to make the same product just wouldnt be fair for the people who were willing to spend thousands of dollars for a unique gun
