Lightbulb vapor or luxe?

is it worth it to get a used vapor since they're so cheap? for the price of one used luxe i can get two vapors? lol they look nice.

if you want a Luxe save some money and just get a worked shocker(they are the same damn thing) for about $300 or less.

stay away from Vapors. not worth the hassle that it "might" be working.

but for my $.03, get a Zodiak ZR1. better than both of them.

For the record...there are no counterfeit ZR-1's. The rumor appears to have been based upon a threat from M. Spurlock to use parts rejected by Zodiac to make thier own guns. These ultimately evolved into the Machine Vapor and not a Zr-1 clone. There is a whole series of thread on PBN from Chris Cole (Zodiac) and Spurlock re this.

That stated, I agree ZR-1's are awesome and you can get them for about 450.00-500.00 right now. I have 2 and IMHO they shoot as well as or better than Luxe or Vapor and have some GREAT ideas, such as using UL board and eyes, so replacements are readily available. Only down side is that the board is not OLED for those that like the convenience. For the extra $1,000.00 savings..I can live without OLED....LOL

Are they really that great!? o_O
Haven't read much into them but since they're cheap I may try to trade my new 2013 reflex rail for one...
Should I end up getting one is there a huge difference between the 2 bolts?

I have had a ZR1, still have 2 vapors and 2 luxes oh and i have 2 shockers. I would say go vapor or luxe and it depends on are you tech savy you are. There has been a lot of horror stories on vapors and mine have both worked flawless. The board on vapor can be confusing at first . But just follow the tuning guide posted and you will be set. Luxes work great and tend to have less issues cause they have been out longer. I love my vapor and luxe but tend to use my vapor more cause for me it has character and I don't see them everywhere .

Both gun can be a nightmare if you are not tech savy .

working on BOTH guns, I'd say if you can diagnose a problem easy, the Vapor is a kick *** gun, the shot alone is worth the asking price... But if your a guy who thinks "Hmm... why wont my gun shoot? I just caked lube on the drive train... wonder if the solenoid is bad... if not I have no idea" I'd look into a Geo

I sooooo agree with this totally . The geo is bar far the simplest and great gun and great that not so techy person . I would go for a 2.0 or a 2.1 the difference is Asa and hpr swivel .

It has a little softer shot than stock. I would recommend if you're going to shoot real Brittle Paint

I got the pooty for better stacking in feedneck and lower pressure. But yeah you should have any problems I didn't.

What can do you have red or gold?
