Geo 3 or 3.5

Hey guys, I have the option to get either the geo 3 or the geo 3.5. I will tell you what I am paying for them below and you let me know.

Geo 3.5:
-Gun is brand new
-Includes everything stock
-Regular color
Paying:
Luxe 2.0 (Pooty Splash) and $470

Geo 3:
-Gun is in amazing condition
-Regular color
-Includes everything stock
Paying:
$600
Upgrades I have for it:
-I have an IV core that I can put on it but I can also sell it for $170 (Got an offer)

Let me know what your opinions are on the deals. I would not like to spend a lot of cash but I do want the newest stuff as well so I am a little iffy.

You will be perfectly happy with the Geo 3 and IV core. I know the newest is tempting (I have a GSL) but the 3 with IV core shoots just as good and is a lot cheaper. Being the newest and quick release bolt, which you won't use much, is about the only thing the 3.5 has over the 3 other than grips and I prefer the 3 style grips over the new style. If you prefer the new style I would get a 3.1 with the IV core
I don't regret getting my GSL but it is in no way $1000 better than a 3 with IV core.

So I went with the geo 3 with the IV core and let me tell you, I'm content. One thing you forgot to mention about the geo 3 and IV core, is that you can adjust about 35 psi through the backcap, either making it smoother or more efficient. The GSL/3.5, has it set right in the middle (you CANNOT adjust it on the GSL/3.5) I like the look of the geo 3 more than the new grips personally as well.

Choose whatever you feel right but, 600-800 dollars between the 3.5 and a geo 3 is a lot of paint money lol.

I'd geo 3.1 with the new core over the 3.5. The ergos on the 3.1 are that much better then the geo3.

Keep the thoughts coming. I keep switching haha. I like the look, color, accessibility, and no macro line of the 3.5 but I dont like the extra cash needed to be added on with it.

Then to be honest you may as well get the 3.5. If you decide you spent too much and would be happy with a 3/3.1 then you can always sell. If you go with the 3/3.1 now you will always want a 3.5.

Very true.

I was thinking about a 3.1 because I love the grips and at pipe. Then the 3.5 got announced and it was a no brainier. The back cap really finished off the marker. To me that meant a lot more than just being quick release. And some people won't agree with that and that's fine. But those people who say "you don't need it, it's not worth the money" need to step back and realize that everyone values things differently.

Man honestly I'd shoot the piss outta a 3 with IV or get the 3.5. No reason to get a 3.1 with a 3. Either stay cheaper or spend some money and get the best marker out there which is the 3.5, except for the GSL of course.

Just yesterday I had the same decision to make. I was trading my AR15 for NIB markers so either way the marker was paid for but after feeling the ergo of them both I liked the 3 better. I was also on the fence about a macrolineless design, I like the look but if it starts leaking im afraid I will have to take apart the gun. I did get to shoot both before I made my decision and the 3.5 seemed to shoot just a slight bit better soif I chose the 3 I would definitely want the IV core bolt upgrade.

the trade for the 3.5 would have just been the marker however the trade for 3 was the marker, a NIB 68/45 ultra ninja tank, NIB rotor, and 5 cases of field paint.

needless to say I went with the Geo 3 and purchased the IV core bolt kit here NIB for $150 shipped

So is a 3.1 with IV Core more tunable then a 3.5 since you can adjust through the back cap? Might be picking up a 3.1 or 3.5 soon

The 3.0 & 3.1 can be adjusted for smoothness/efficiency on the back cap - the GSL/3.5 cannot due to its design.

Couldn't you shim the prop shaft spring on a 3.5, effectively doing the same as screwing in the screw on the 3 with IV core? All you are doing is starting with the prop shaft spring slightly more compressed, which either the screw or a shim would do. It would allow part of the adjustment the IV core offers for the 3 on the 3.5.

i think just leave the 3.5 alone honestly in my opinion if u want to tune then you should get a bob long pe is not known for their awesome shot quality so if you need the best shot quality then u need a luxe lol

planet is just pure raw work horse so just leave it alone

and congrats op on that 3.5!!

I have a 3.5, my buddy has a 3.1 with core IV bolt. the difference is definitely marginal and will come down to your preference and also how sweet the deal has been made on both accounts. I would have search for a 3.1 and been content with one in good condition with four core bolt, had I not found a 3.5 BNIB for an excellent price. G-luck
