I'll drop 200 on some 14 year olds timmy and shoot you in the face and make you cry you paid 10x the price.

I originally just wanted to comment on Ego milling but found some other points I thought I'd mention to be talkative...

Agree on Ego vs. Vice Price/quality comment - but you don't have to pay 1250 for an ego...I mean feel free but...its not necessary..

Disagree on smooth shooting comment (EgoX) I was really impressed with the smoothness..and it was a pleasure to shoot with the balance rammer.

And the original comment was about the milling...I got a Ego10 in a trade down with a pretty nice pricetag on it and ****ing hated it the first week I got it. Shot like a super marker should...maybe not 1250 dollars worth good, but what it lacked in overall Boss factor it made up for in ease maintenance and simplicity, which I'm fairly new and is kinda still important to me. But it looked godam hideous. The Blink scheme didn't help matters any.

But goofing with the gun did slowly let me appreciate the subtle (or I'm sure you'll say lack there of) milling. Very slight and non aggressive. Not non existant imo, just laid back. Pinked out some gear and was nearly in love with it. (God forbid)

But since paintball isn't laid back and markers are for merc'n *****es, alas I had to sell and pick up a darq. Cuz it looks ANGREH.

Anyway, thats my two cents. Darqs in the mail..hopin its as hot as the Edge I let go in a money pinch not too long ago.

well that was probably the first pro-ego opinion that I heard that didn't mention the words "agg" or "haterz." well put. Can't wait to see the pics of your darq brother.

That's the thing though, a lot of people don't think it's worth $1250 anymore. Especially with such subtle changes to it in performance compared to other markers. I just never got the whole Ego band wagon is the thing, I didn't want to be shooting something everybody else at my field was.

I'm not looking to swap any parts on mine. I know Tokay isn't going to either. And my buddy who just acquired my other Dust white is set on keeping his. You could contact Jason at Blast and ask him to reanodize your darq dust white if you want it that bad. he did that for my laser engraved arsenal one. horrible laser engraving, great gun. had to do something about getting rid of that lasering.

I've been debating doing something to my red edge. Either annoing the silver parts orange and making an Eva 02 theme.

Tada.

Or doing it brown with black parts because I have a secret/humorous idea for that theme as it would require laser engraving.
Or I just thought of a third option... Jason you say? Hrmmm, I wonder now. I could make the hottest edge ever... EVER.
