Ydna is the lead designer and co-founder of the company. We've been working on this gun since 2007, when we started designing it for FEP. Same gun, just light years ahead.

Just a FYI, light years is a measure of distance and not time. You don't want the kids reading your post thinking it's light years long.

We're VERY far ahead of everyone else (~5,900,000,000,000 miles per light year).

But thanks for pointing that out, we wouldn't want to confuse anyone

That's two things thus far that I have found out about this marker that is new and possibly revolutionary and I've only known about this marker for 3 days. You should probably try researching a bit before looking like a dimwit.
As I said, looks like all of the other guns that are supposedly being released by new companies. Looks, not operation. Depending on how it combines spool and poppet technology I don't see it being any more "revolutionary" than the Marq platform. Post was based solely on looks alone.

Not to be a dick, I'm very excited about this, but until you've released a production marker you're not ahead of anyone. As a matter of fact, I think you're behind.

But you're correct, it's all "coming soon" for the moment. That's why there hasn't been any actual advertisements or promotions, except for the occasional picture here on the forums. Nobody wants to see vaporware, that's for sure.

If this were just another electronic spool valve marker then it would have been released back in 2009 when after the first prototypes were made. We're being quiet for a reason!

more later...

We finished up our last set of prototypes; the new design we're in the process of having made will be our "production" version. We'll QA it, but it if it works as expected we plan to share much more info about it within the next few weeks/months.

They said they were going to "try" and make the markers price competitive with egos and vics, but i will bet its going to be pricier because of that little try word
