GEO3.5 Discontinued???

Anyone heard anything about the 3.5s being discontinued? Looking at ANS and Badlands, colour options are limited and/or are out of stock. Could eclipse be trying to push out more CS1s?

The eclipse site also does not show any 3.5's.

No idea if it is intentional, but whenever a new model comes out, less of older models are produced and then stopped altogether. It might be a phase out plan of theirs. Only they could say.

I just bought one before they all go away. I like my 3.5 better than my cs1. But that's just preference

Could be... I noticed the CS1 colors made it to the LV1.1s but not the 3.5s. Planet Eclipse's UK online store is usually the most updated and that one only has midnight 3.5s.
Looks like since the release of the CS1 and the Gtek people have been picking up one or the other leaving the 3.5 in between so they might've just moved on.

In retrospect, the 3.5 had an amazing run.

With so many ppl likening the feel of the 3.5 better I really don't think it would be a good idea to stop making the 3.5. Hoping production has just slowed a lot so they can keep up with cs1 sales. Once cs1 stock is nice and caught up I am hoping they will start making more colors for 3.5 again. If they made limited runs of nice splashes I would likely buy one of they keep price around 1100 or so.

I love the feel of the 3.5 which is why the low stock is concerning. I will also want to grab a backup 3.5 before theyre all gone, if that is really the case.

A bit of a shame. I really liked my 3.5.

I would wager that PE is trying to phase out the 3.5's. They are probably cutting into the CS1 sales and would rather just push more CS1's then CS1's and 3.5's. All manufactures do this when they develop a new product, they keep selling last generation until they have moved all their stock. I'd be really surprised if they started making more 3.5's

Edit: a little too late on my post I see lol

Only makes sense. PE isn't making geo, +, 2, 2.1, 3.0 or 3.1 why would they keep making 3.5? The newest geo is a cs1. I just got a cs1 today and I like the feel a lot more than the 3.5. All preference of course but it's with everything.

So basically PE is producing the CS1 and the LV1.1 as their high-end offerings, with the CS1 being the flagship line.

I was expecting the LV1.1 to be discontinued like the 3.5 but Jack Woods mentioned in a video not too long ago that PE had no plans in the near future (12-18 months?) for a new Ego.

This is like wondering if Ford will continue making 2016 mustangs when the 2017's come out. It makes no business sense to continue producing an older model that will cannibalize sales of the model they just spent tons of money doing R&D to produce.

Would it be worth getting a 3.5 new before they're gone vs waiting for used prices to drop?

They have them on sale for $1,100 CDN.

That's a steal!

At least it was a fantastic run. Probably won't even buy a new marker now for a few more years.
