Luxe feel long ??

I'm thinking about getting a luxe but the look very long. is it just an optical illusion I really don't have long arms so I'm not sure if it would be akward or not. Any info would be great

No one can tell you how the gun will feel to you. My advice, go to your local field or proshop and hold one for yourself.

it feels great in my hands, it is not compact like a mini or a g3 or anything in that nature. its probably closer to a newer ego in length

It has a great feel to it. Nicest feeling marker out there in my honest opinion and I have owned most of them.

Most newish markers are the same length more or less (Luxe, Clone, G6R, newer Egos/Geos etc). This length feels good to most people.

Kid at the local field got a luxe Saturday, he's probably 11/12 and loved the set up(with a 48/45 stubby). If you don't have long arms, just use a smaller tank. But the guns length is perfect imo

Since the luxe is longer your paint bullets will reach the opposing player first thus, you will get more kills with this gun. That's why everyone likes it so much.

I love the stretched out feel of the luxe, though it's not too far off from other newer guns. The little bit of extra length feels much better, without making me feel like its in the way.

Luxe is longer than my Rev-i, but it feels great in the hands.

I personally recommend if you're under 5'8" you get a tank smaller than a 68/4500 at it makes a lot harder to switch hands and hold at a comfortable level. I'm 5'8" and I find it problematic sometimes.

It being longer helps with gun control and accuracy especially when running and gunning.

I had the exact same concerns about the Luxe. We had a tournament last weekend and one of the refs had just bought a Luxe 2.0. I asked him if I could see it and he gladly obliged. The Luxe does look very long but in the hands, it's not that long. It may be longer than some guns but it's not by much. We're both under 5'8" and he had a Ninja 45/45 tank on it. I asked him how it felt when he played and he said that the slightly longer length made it a lot easier to handle the gun. Overall, the length is more of an illusion than its actual length but in the end, it's your decision.

The overall length of the gun is approximately the same as most other guns on the market, but it is the spacing between the reg and trigger that makes it feel longer... I thing it makes it easier to run and gun and control snapping

i actually lined up my luxe with the my ego 11 and they are really so close to the same, that there is no real difference. ( except for the macroline, which makes the ego feel shorter, the macro less design if the luxe makes it feel long when it isnt really longer than most other guns.)

The ladies won't mind the extra length, neither should you.

I was worried about the same thing until I finally got one. The gun feels excellent in the hands if you ask me; really not much longer (if any) than most guns. Then again, nobody can really tell you how a gun feels.

This question is far to complex for us to be able to answer you effectively. An optical illusion is dependent on each individuals vision and susceptibility to the illusion. The length being too long is also extremely subjective. Here are some of the factors you should consider when considering marker length:

1. Length of your arm
2. How you hold your marker in relation to your body position
3. Tank size (i.e. 45 peanut vs. 68)
4. Tank reg (i.e. Guerrilla vs Ninja)
5. Position you play on the field

All of these things (and perhaps more) affect whether the marker feels longer or shorter. Overall, the Luxe is a tad longer compared to other markers. However, all of the things above have an effect on if it actually translates to perceived length. The Luxe seems to have most of its extra length in the area between the grip frame and front regulator. This is an advantage since it gives you a more stable platform while running etc. It's kind of like the idea that having your legs apart gives you better balance than when they are perfectly together. Hope this helps.
