I switched over to the cocker side just this week from Dye Matrix and Dragon Intimidator (WAS). I was researching alot (including your opinions on PBnation)before buying a Naughty Dog Worr class Orracle. I have gotten it for 1175 shipped via PAYPAL. If you subtract the shipping cost ($15) and Paypal fee ($35), my marker actually cost $1125 . This is what I am getting :
Worr Bladed Orracle, Naughty Dogs edition
Grip Feed Neck
Kaner Barrels Kit (matching)
Stainless steel rods (standard on E-orracle ?? not sure)
Evlution 2 or Halo B (I chose egg, already own Halo)
Now if you compare that whole setup with a regular E-orracle, there is very little differences in prices. "Dogs" did not have any problem with them, and they delivered hail storms with these markers. And also, don't forget that Orr has been making Cockers as long as we know!
Nexus is a nice (beautiful) gun, but spending the extra cash on this gun IMO will get you shot out more. The reasons are:
1) You will make no crazy moves or dives===> scratched gun(OUCH)
2) You will spend more time showing off than playing
3) Everybody on the opposite team will be after you
So, go with the Dogs Orracle, that way you can show off and afford to scratch it at the same time unless you just hit the lottery.
