I wouldn't mind shooting a luxe or GT just to see what they're all about, but I couldn't stand the ergonomics on the Clone VX. They shot nice but were not comfortable to hold in my opinion. But I think that might have been because I came from the NT haha. I'm just a big Dye fan so I'm sure I'll check out a DM12 eventually, and maybe a luxe or GT too. I think I'm gonna keep my NT for now though.

I do feel the GT is much more comfortable than the VX.

I had two GTs. The concept is sound, but the noid issue and oled constantly burning out plus the funky ergonomics finally turned me off to them.
They're very back heavy, the stock grips suck, and the bolt is as complex as the Luxes.

I shoot a DM12 now because I can tune the LPR for a super smooth shot, it's simple to tech, and it was very cheap to buy compared to the GTs and Luxe.

My NT11 shot well with thicker shelled paint.
I didn't see the 'flatter shot' everyone crows about, though.
It shot like a DM, a bit more kick, maybe, certainly a lot less tuneable than my DMs.
I ended up getting a good trade for a DM11 and I took it.
I probably would not own another NT unless it was a gift.

That's why I seem to be more interested in the DM12 over other markers I think. The fact that I've been shooting them basically forever until I got this NT11 so I know all the problems that occur with them and I know how to tune them. That and the new UL frame is awesome.

I like my NT so I'll probably keep it around for awhile and probably try to pick up a DM12 for cheap or maybe a Luxe, but like you said, Luxes and GT's are noticeably more expensive for what seems to be a minor performance increase. I just need to tame my gun whore instincts haha.

On another note, I just bought an NXT shocker for super cheap. It apparently has a leak but will still shoot. I'm going to try to tech it and see if I can get the leak fixed then sell it. It seems like shockers and luxes are pretty similar, so it would be a good way to get a feel for the platform to see if I'm impressed at all.

If anyone has any shocker knowledge or experience feel free to enlighten me.

DR- you need thicker eye glasses to see that flat shot.

I had an hybrid nxt and I suggest spring modding the bolt. Really changes the way the gun shoots.

If it don't shoot like mah Garand from Korea, it aint a flat shot!

Seriously though, I really never saw it. I know a guy locally that drags out his tuned NT10 (BWinged) every time we play, and it doesn't have a flatter shot either.

They're not cockers

I feel like I should go drink a PBR now.

Anyway, I think part of the "flatter" shot and point-and-shoot-ability come from the NT having a bit lower profile and the fact that it's a single tube.

tons of weird looks. i stopped at a taco bell and when i came out a guy was taking pics of it. the rear fender is about half way over the tire.


the front tires have about 3 inches between the fender and the tire.

so in the trunk there was the trany, engine well half of it, a engine stand. in the back i had a toolbox that weighed every bit of 100 lbs and a pb bag that is like 45-50.

I'm trying to convince the wife to lease a new M3.

She'll probably end up with some sort of 3 series (non-M).

Do you have a frown on the other elbow? That would be sweet.
