If PE didnt have every year gun releases then you wouldn't be buying that ego7 for "DIRT CHEAP"

There's more than one Thomas Taylor?

And because I don't agree with you guys 100% of the time, then yeah, I guess I must be a troll.....

That being said, I've owned 7 PE markers, and I can't say I've not enjoyed them.

I never understood the people who heavily push the used gun market in these news threads. The newer stuff is what makes the older models go down in price. Also, if you have no intention of buying the newer stuff, why even bother looking in the news threads? Unless you're researching for 3-4 years down the road when you do intend on buying the Ego11 for 'dirt cheap'.

You stating you don't like a particular marker or a particular feature of a marker is fine. It's when you continue to post in the same thread after it's been made clear you don't like the product and start causing issues that makes you a troll. And that applies to everyone, not just you.

Do you apply this to all aspects of life/news, or just here? Going into a news thread, on this site, doesn't require you to leave a credit card number to buy the product you're about to read up on. IDK if you may have noticed that or not.

How can anyone say they don't like this gun? Based on a barrel tip, and a partial feedneck? I'll reserve judgement until I try one out. But posting about the marker obviously doesn't require that you try one first, because then, what would be the point of this thread? A whole picture hasn't been released, so we're not discussing looks...So, to that point, what do we have left to discuss?

It is my personal opinion that if you opt to pick up a 07-10 (assuming 11 as well) ego, none of them are going to help/hinder your game any more than the other.

They are all superior markers.

What can a person realistically expect to be so "new" in a paintball marker? We are re-engineering the same design every year, but, it still has to achieve the function of using compressed air to propel a gelatinous ball downfield.

Maybe you can make a marker a touch more efficient, maybe a little quieter, but in the end, they are all doing the same thing. No one marker is going to be leaps and bounds beyond another as long as they are both built with quality parts, on a platform focused around reliability.

I still like seeing the new markers every year, and now that I have finally progressed in my schooling to the point that I am being paid significantly for my design projects, I may consider picking up a new marker if something strikes my fancy.

I don't 'window shop'. Women go window shopping, men don't. So yes, I apply this to all aspects of my life.

I clearly remember you posting in the G6R thread. So I guess that means you're buying both markers

If they follow tradition this ego will be a new generation since it's an odd year.

How about we all just wait and see what the gun is and is about before we start both touting it's greatness and trashing it's shortcomings...We know nothing about this gun excpet that it obviosuly has a barrel, a feedneck, and a rammer cap...

The every "two year PE has a break through" is just by chance...I'm sure they did not sit back and say "Oh, it's been two years...time to make the donuts"...They never said they are gong every two years in creating an Ego...It will not be macro-less, that much was said...

That being said, I will be getting an Ego11. I know this much, even if it is "just" a lighter Ego10 or even if it is "just" an SLS, those two platforms rocked and are not bad to have...

I had the money to buy the marker and could have bought it if it wowed me. I posted in there that I didn't like the looks of it and that was that for me. Until someone would show me a link to false info being posted about other guns/products I am familiar with. That was the only other time I posted in there. And actually haven't looked in there in the last few days since I could care less about the G6R at this point.

I'm glad I made a memorable impression on you. But this thread is about the Ego11 so let's try to stick to the topic at hand. Thanks.

For those who are just waiting to post something negative about the new gun, what changes would you like to see made to the Ego. What improvements could they make that you would say 'that is a worthwhile change'?

Forget the macroless thing because that's a fad PE is not going to do. And don't say something that is not realistic at the moment like electromagnetic yada yada to drive the rammer.

You should understand by now that hating on PE in the news thread makes you cool

Fad? How is it a fad? Because They told you it was? I mean, the advantages are quite obvious. I've not heard PE's argument against it, but clearly, the advantages are there.

You will never get a sensible question. I have posted that question for every release since the 08 and I have yet to hear a sensible response. You will get:
-make it macroless
-give it less kick
-its too loud
...and thats ALL you will get

Exactly. Would you rather have Ego7's still selling for $1250 new and $1000 used? Because that's what would happen without continued refinement.

I personally would be disappointed if a company chose not to update their products, but sell them for the same price year after year.

You are really just getting a better gun at the same price. Even if you argue that it's not any better, it's the same gun, etc, etc, it's still the same price!

Of course we all know that it will be better
