"BLINK" EGO X & "Cotton Candy" EGO 11.


Notice the difference in the blues on both guns.
The ego 10 has a more babyish blue color and the ego 11 has a darker blue.

Still don't see it. Looks identical to me.

Also, if you already knew the answer, why would you ask the question in the title of this thread?

That's great. Is there a reason why there is a thread about this?

I was wondering why they would change the blues. IMO the ego 10 looks way better.

the 10 is a factory anno, the 11 is an ans gear anno. Also, they look different because of the different finishes. The 10 is polished and the 11 is a dust finish.

The 10 is dust as well. It might be the lighting, but PE hasn't done polished bodies since a select few in 07.

I dont think its the lighting because its just such a darker finish.
also i have heard these cotton candy egos are not tourny legal, because broken paint cannot be seen well on the marker?

I don't understand the point of this thread. The blues don't have to be the same. They're two completely different colorways from two different years.

Screw that. NOBODY cares about the different shades between these two markers except the OP.

OP, your thread really has no point.

They did the same with the Poison scheme for the ego10 and ego11. i was a little mad about it too, but its been explained before that ANNO rarely comes out matching exactly alike.

Just out of curiousity, by saying they haven't done bodies you do mean that they have done accents right? What keeps them from doing bodies?

I think maybe they change the shades from year to year to differentiate? I noticed the poisons were different, I liked the EgoX and Geo poison color, the new poison just doesn't look as bright to me.

As far as colors being banned, last I checked, pink was not banned color, but some fields do ban pink paint, because it stains.

Those two weren't meant to match, they were completely different schemes weren't they?
If I recall correctly the Ego 10 scheme was Poison, where as the Geo 2 scheme was Poison 2 (which that Ego 11 appears to be based off)

well actually, to be fair, the "poison" ego11 scheme was made by ansgear by swapping parts. Theres probably other companies or sellers who have a variety of ego11s in stock who probably swap parts for customers too. But as i said, if Planet Eclipse were to make a real poison ego11, the colors wouldn't be a perfect match to the poison ego10.

And to the OP, if you swap that cotton candy ego11 blue with the shiner blue, im sure it'll closely resemble the blink ego10. Unless that cotton candy blue is the shiner blue and its just the lighting in the picture.

Ansgear choose's the colors of the exclusive markers. Because ansgear is such a large distributor they have the ability to order colors combinations of what ever they think will sell so they're the ones decideding what shades of blue to use for the markers
