I had a co-worker at a field I used to play at who put his markers on 15bps to make people feel like they were dominating just to sell them EGO6's for $700 used and abused.

He was a dick.

What field you thinking?

creek is my only real option; it's 20 minutes from me. I can meet you out there at 11 if you'd like.

And yea, I never make a sale off BPS alone. Once they figure out what a field cap is you're SOL.

I'll see what's doing for me tomorrow

Are you going tomorrow regardless? Or only to meet me there if I went?

Only to meet you there. If you can't make it, tell me so I can go to the cherry ridge gun show instead!

So these markers are not made by Smart Parts?

I have overlooked them completely as I was under the assumption that they were made by Smart Parts because the look is so similar to the luxe.

I will do more reading on them now.

Nope, brand new company, brand new factory. The bolt has a similar design, but it's FAR more efficient, and I feel that the overall quality is damn good.

I always send people to Nick's review video because I think he really hit all the main concerns:

I can tell you right now that anyone who tries to sue machine will be in for a world of hurt. All I can say is that they're ready for anything.


Bottom line: Nobody's going to sue Machine, because Machine's carrying the bigger stick.

Not sure on what grounds you could sue Machine on. As far as I know nothing infringes on Any patents. Things may look similar or function similar,but change one small thing and it won't infringe on anything.

Only lawsuits I could see would be if they didn't pay any Bills,and since they can't keep the shelves stocked,I doubt they have anything to worry about.

I think he's referring to this rumor: http://socialpaintball.com/2012/08/3...o-the-ironmen/

Quote:
Rumor: Virtue, Luxe, and Vapor infringed on patents of a major paintball company…expect lawsuits…

Certainty: 90%. In the U.S. Patent Office there is a file. It’s been a while since we have seen any major legal crap – well, a while for paintball. The sport is due some industry drama… am I right!?

Psh, they've been saying stuff like that for YEARS. This is SOCIAL PAINTBALL we're talking about.

The fact that the author couldn't even properly make a list worries me a little bit.
"Virtue, Luxe, Vapor" should be written as "Virtue, DLX, Machine" (all manufactures instead of MFG, product, product)

Also note that he has no cited sources, all of his percentages are in increments of 10 (100, 90, 70, 100, 80, 100, 90. This indicates opinion instead of facts) and he DEFINITELY didn't ask Machine about any of this because if he had, he'd know WHY there won't be a lawsuit.

Does any one on this forum have a spare battery cable for the vapor they would like to sell. I try to get a answer from machine customer service and can never get a straight answer for anything. I have tried numerous times but never a direct answer. I haven't been able to use this gun for a little while now. Someone said they have great customer service I just don't see it.

If you cant get an answer from Machine you could always try going in to a local hobby shop that does radio controlled cars and planes. I would be surprised if you couldnt find it there.
