I can really only see Dye coming out with maybe ONE more NT model... There's very little to improve on and it's not a long, tested line like the DMs. The only thing I could see happening is maybe they took a year off to work out ALL the bugs and kinks that require mods on NTs now. But from a business point of view, they weren't making much on the NT's and now that they have such a bad rep (I don't know why it's so bad :/), it would be risky

this i have to disagree with the NT project has been going on for quite sometime now (2007-8) i believe. Yes not as long as the DM line but its been 5-6 years. The whole basic look at the marker and how it runs and what there going for is genius but so hard to achieve. If they can get the NT to be what they want "really smooth but most efficient spool on marker" then they will be the Best spool on market. They have achieved this, but now they need to make it alot more reliable. If they can achieve this I honestly see this marker being that gun that every spool lover owns. because honestly its what everyone wants in a Spool and currently the only marker close to this is the Geo 3, its smooth(i hear) and now pretty efficient(I hear).

yeah if we could combine the aesthetics and ergos of the NT + efficiency & smoothness of the Clone I think we'd have the ultimate spoolie haha. the feedneck problem was fixed with the VX and the GTs grips are more durable now

Of course the GT grips are more durable, they are hard plastic piece of **** panels.

NT has the smoothness and efficiency of the Clone, just not the ability to shoot super fragile paint.


I think this is Vegards video

I know the grips suck so hard. why can't they just put the NT tool-less grips and call it a day

whys that?
and I went to the Jrab/GP clinic in Jan, alot of basic stuff was taught, Did learn my snapshooting technique though. There okay Idk about his. there really good for beginner for around there. but even advanced guys will learn 1 or 2 things. basicly depends on the skill level at clinic. If its alot of beginners id say you wont learn as much as if it all D2-D3 players
