New LUXE(?) - Price Drop.

Just got this.



Looks like a drop in OLED MAP's.

I think that every time I've seen this it's been either followed by or in connection to a new release.

So aside from lower pricing, anyone suspecting a new Luxe to drop anytime soon?

Either that, or they are trying to keep sales up in light of two new major releases from PE and Dye.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a new release though. I just hope they continue to use the same platform and make a couple improvements like the eye ribbon and....honestly I can't think of anything else to improve. Lol My hands are big so maybe a trigger guard that doesn't hurt the back of my thumb when I hold the front grip.

I'd love to see them go with a connector-less solution for frame mounting/removal. They sort of need to do that to keep up with the balance of the top end markers.

Aside from that, I don't see a need for pressure readings .

The ASA may not be people's favorite, but I think it works better then a quick flip ASA would.

Maybe a grip that doesn't have to come fully off for charging, but that would mean relocating the charge port as I don't think you could have an access cover I. That spot on the grip without it detracting from the comfort. Perhaps revamp the FT manifold to make it easier to use/adjust.

-Disagree with the FT Manifold and the charge port. The FT is one of those things, that in theory, shouldn't need to be adjusted once you have the marker tuned. Its current spot is the best place for it. And while you don't have to remove the grip fully to charge the marker, 9 times out of 10, I remove that grip for cleaning and servicing prior to/post practice. And since the grip is already off at that point, I plug it in for the hour it takes to charge.
-I'm with you on the wire-less connection for the frame. I'd love to see contact pads like MacDev did.
-I wouldn't mind seeing a revamp to the eye ribbons should they go the contact pad route.
-I like the ASA too. I think it fits the design very well and anything else would just look weird at this point. It's minimal and works.

.

Agreed, that's why I listed those the way I did.

I just don't see a lot that can easily be changed, maybe milling/body change to lower the OP.

The other thing I'd like to see is a better seal on the solenoid inserts, I've had them start leaking twice and that was something that left me scratching my head.

All I would like is a bigger lithium polymer battery that could be the same eight and a ton more juice. Just because

Ac threads so I can get boom sticks

Took less Reg because tool less eyes and bolt already.

Even quieter and even smoother. Same efficiency. Just don't get worse.

Lighter but only if much smoother and quieter.

Nine resettable shot counter. One touch instant on like 2.0s

I can do with a new bolt, more efficient. Other than that, I still don't see myself switching from luxe

Keep it like it is imo. Maybe a lighter stock bolt/new bolt design. Love my 2.0 to pieces. Wouldn't trade it for anything.

My OLED has instant on. Granted, I have to double tap the power button instead of one touch, but its startup time is much quicker than my PE or MacDev markers.

I am hoping a new luxe will have,

Less O rings and improve reliability,

Would like a soft faced bolt that would mean FT isn't needed any more

And a small increase in efficiency. As most places around me only do 3k fills

Tried the CS1 this weekend and didn't like it way to chunky so holding out for a new luxe now

~~INTERNET CONSPIRACY THEORY~~

This also dovetails with a few other bits I've come across. When the OLED first came out, (my recollection is) DLX said/referenced that there would be an OLED Kit made available for existing markers. I waited a long time for it to be released and was told repeatedly through several channels that it wasn't coming out. A few people had mentioned DLX worried it would cannibalize OLED marker sales.

Fast forward to the last few weeks, someone posted that they were told directly by DLX that there would be a kit released to upgrade the 2.0 and older models to the OLED. Combine that with the price drop and this proposed announcement could we be seeing the re-birth of the Luxe line (in the same way the CS1 is taking that line to the next level)?

The two big releases have certainly made the LUXE look in need of a re-vamp with some of the features they offer. Three weeks ago, the Luxe was one of the few high ends with Gas through and a screen. Now the two largest sellers of high end's have those features, so the Luxe could be due for a change up. Same with the Vanquish, but I wouldn't expect anything on that front until PBE.
