well then the only thing out of your budget really is luxe 2.0, GT, and Geo3 imo. Do you like spools or poppits?

I like the SL's ... *cough, cough*

But really though. You can't go wrong with an Ego.
Unless you want a spool valve.

Don't ask me that, because if you did, I would have to say "my SL in my sig".
But I'm not going to say that.

I'd probably prefer a spoolie, because I don't really care about efficiency, and I actually enjoy maintaining my guns.

But it all depends what you like.

I've never shot a Vic, but I've been trying to trade my SL for one, people just don't want to add enough.

Either of those choices would be good for your money.

Ego's are virtually 0 maintenance.

I would go sl94 over the sl8r, but possibly 10 over sl94.

It really depends. I would take a little bit less smooth gun that comes with a barrel kit and other extras over a gun that shoots a bit better. But most people say that the Ego 10 shoots different than any other ego.

I haven't ever shot an Ego 10, but I wouldn't take one straight for my SL. (But they are a bit cheaper.)

i would say if your playing snake go with a spoolie just because you wont have any way for dirt to get to your bolt which happened with my etek and now i got a g6r and im horrified to play snake lol or just dive in general and i would recommend either a clone vx, geo 2.1, or even a ripper they're still pretty efficient and beautiful , or a luxe 1.5 although some 2s are going really cheap... just try to find a really good deal.

If I were you I'd get either a luxe that has upps or a g6r there both great guns super smooth and they look cool and there very compact so great for a snake player
