So why did they release an 06 Ego, or SL66, or Ego7, or SL74, Ego8, SL8r, Ego9, SL94, Ego10, or SLs? They could have just released a new regulator to put on it, new ram to put in it, made us send in our boards for flash updates, made us BUY a new bolt, ect. And we'd still be shooting Ego5's with a bunch of upgrade parts.

It's the principle of making somehthing better overall. I can take my SL8r and put a Cure3+ and Zick2 in it and make it a little bit better, but it still isn't going to be as good as my SL94 or SLs. As I said, it's about adding new features to the platform that make it more user friendly. Me personally, if I could afford a brand new SLs with all the bells and whistles, I'm probably not going to drop the cash I have on an Ego5 with upgrade parts over an SLs, because the SLs is going to give me more for my money. Does it cost more? Yes, but it's the most up to date marker, and has every premium part that PE makes currently, and they come in the box, not added by the end-user.

i agree with uziel. The most eclipse gun i see in use where i play is 07 egos. A lot of them have cure3+'s and zick2's and a lot are just stock. These guys all would love to have a ego10 or SLs or whatever, but also dont need another thousand dollar gun when their current one shoots great. A lot of people will buy the new guns, but a lot wont cuz they really dont need them, and if you release some less expensive upgrades for them they will definately buy them. For that reason eclipse should definately release the geo2 bolt kit. Not immediately no, but definately a few months down the road. Last time I called about information and pre-ordering I was told they do have plans to release the updated bolt peices sometime down the line but who knows. Also, for those asking this is just speculation but it looks like the st can is the only part that remained the same, the bolt is engraved geo2 so although it looks similiar im betting theres differences and obviously the prop shaft is different.

Funny thing is that an upp'd 05 is my 3rd gat and the way it shoots is part of the reason I can sell my egoX and be happy with an 05 as backup.....

Why is this thread still going? It is obvious from 96LS's videos that the new prop shaft will fit into the same hole as the old one. PE has a track record of releasing the new internals for previous markers. So the only question is a when and we ALL know that will be answered when PE is ready and not a second too soon haha!

Their is no way anytime soon orig geo owners are getting the internals. Why would pe do that. If you want that bad buy a geo2. Case closed. I can't see them releasing for at least six months probably more.

Well, PE is rather hit or miss on releasing upgrades for other markers.

They released the Cure bolts, but not LP valve guides.

They released Star frames and QEV's, but not regulators.

IMO it's very much in the air. If they do release it, I can only assume it will be a fair amount of time after the initial release of the Geo2. They won't want an upgrade kit eating into the sales of a new marker.

I'm just thinking that it might have been like release of the clone, when their prototype worked in the original droid, but the final release is different and not compatible?

Dunno... Just speculating

I do not think they are obligated to release the separate upgrade. HOWEVER, the original Geo does not get the efficiency numbers that PE promised (1500+ shots on a 68/45). That alone is a great reason for them to release the better efficiency upgrade out to the public.

Then I'm sure that PE doesn't have universal bolts that can be putinto any ego. quit pretending like you know everything and just wait for a release date.

Geo 2 bolt has an extra hole, I would imagine if they release the prop shaft a new bolt would come with it if it is an issue. No biggie......bolt prop shaft for Geo 1's woul dbe just like Zick's and Bolts for Ego's. they have been doing it, so I can only assume they will continue to do it. Timeline is the factor, it will most likely be a WHILE.

This thread is still going because the Geo2 hasn't been released yet, only a handful of people possess prototype internals and even fewer have been lucky enough to shoot prototype Geo2's in anger

Theoretically the entire Geo2 Bolt system will fit into a Geo or Geo+, but it will have to be the entire bolt system (Prop Shaft, Can and Bolt) to work correctly.

If it will ever be released is still to be decided (and heavily dependant on that Million Dollar deposit )

Thanks for the info on the general compatibility of the two engines.

As for the $1Mil. I didn't win the lottery, but I am working on my craps and blackjack skills and I'll be in Vegas in two weeks, so I'll keep you posted.....

If I give you the $1 mil, you htink you could throw in a red to clear faded (05 Ego style) geo 2??

Except that I owe Nicky a huge favor ALREADY, not including the sake I sent all the way from Japan.

*edit* I can't forget Ledz either, the man with the pink mankini.
