This is the truth, NTs shoots nice but off all people i know that owned one, they all had problems at some point. Wonder why there is a DM12 and no NT12, or why you saw the dye sponsored teams shoot DMs so often this year even tho they had to promote the highend stuff?

Egos are just headache free.

I had a DM11 to start the year off, picked up an Ego11 about 3 months ago, and now I just traded my DM11 for and Ego 9. The 11 shot so well I just figured I might as well have and Ego as my back up. Dye guns shoot great when their working, but just so much to maintain and baby. Ego's always work and require so little effort to keep them running at top notch.

I agree with all said but why is he getting rid of the ego. Have you test fired it or does he just like to try out different guns

Ego 11 over the NT every day of the week. I love dye guns ALOT, but when it comes to the NT or the Ego 11, the Ego 11 is more efficient (at least the ones I have shot), Don't break paint nearly as much as the NT, and upkeep is nothing compared to the NT. Go to the NT forum and they will tell you to get a DM if you ask them.

My Ego 11 was seriously nothing special after about 15-20 cases through it. Very good but marginally overpriced. I don't need the fancy case and such to add to the price.

Just got a BW-modded NT11 and it really surprised me on how well it shot. It does need to be maintained well but being a tech at my local store, I don't mind the extra 5 minutes work. With that being said I'd never spend 1500 on a new, stock NT11.

Out of the boatload of guns I've whored through, the NT11 was the only one I regret trading. Required little maintenance, never, ever broke paint, was more efficient than all my egos with the red spacer and billy wing mod, and was more comfortable to hold than any ego ever will be. Granted it did kick a bit and was kind of loud for a spool but I liked that kind of feedback every time I pulled the trigger.

I'd pick an NT11 any day of the week but a straight trade for an Ego11 is a good deal when you're comparing resale value.
