Arrow front/mid player asking for help on buying a Geo 2.1 or 3

Thanks for your time and suggestions--
Currently use a Ego 10, love it but I'd like something smoother, and well, something new. Rarely carry more than 3 pods so efficiency isnt much of a deal breaker, im just after accurate and smooth, little kick as necessary. Not sure if its worth picking up a 2.1 and saving a couple hundred bucks or jumping on a 3. Ive read over the Geo 3 main points and it sounds like a legit piece, just questioning if jumping to the 2.1 would fit my needs or is a 3 really necessary. Shout out to Texas Paintball players!

Shot a geo2 the other day. It has ALOT of kick. Just being honest. Get a Geo+ or a geo3. We compared all three and it went like this-from smooth/no kick

Best-geo+
Worst-geo2

Lol. If u think there is a difference in shooting between the geo2 and 2.1, your out of luck.

The only difference Is the angled collar, and the pops asa.

Good reason to want a 2.1 good Sir. I like the pops
And looking for a Geo+ on ebay doesnt really bring results where 2.1 does

The geo2 is the Geo2.1 and both are superior to the Geo + Unless money is an issue than the Geo+.

It all depends on the tuning of the geo 2/2.1. If you are not worried about getting every little bit of efficiency out of the 2.1 then you can make them butter smooth. I have found most really kicky geo2 / 2.1's have the dwell low and the reg pressure up to compensate for low dwell. Some will be smooth when tuned like this but most are not.

I have found with mine and a couple others I have tuned that the dwell around 12 and reg set to shoot 290 is the smoothest feeling settings. In saying that i still shot 6 pods and a hopper with about 800psi left from a 3500psi fill on a 68/4500 ninja tank at my last training and get 3 pods and a loader from my 50/4500 ninja tank on a 3500psi fill with about 500psi left. So even with the higher dwell settings is still good efficiency.

I have owned both a gr2+gst geo1 (which also had the sl3 regfitted) and geo 2.1 and there is no way that the geo 1 was smoother than the 2.1, plus the geo1 is a air hog. I have not shot or owned a geo3 so cant comment there.

I have owned all three editions, and i have to say that if you can afford a geo 3, get one! I have been very impressed through the 2.5 cases ive put thru my geo 3 in the last weekend or so. I will have another 2-2.5 cases after this weekends practice, and im breaking out the soft faced bolt this weekend too. I really like the adjustability of the geo 3 and the shot is superior to both the geo 2 and geo 1. efficiency is pretty solid also.

geo 3. easy. soft-tip bolt makes it impossible to break paint, its smoother, more efficient, quieter than the 2.1. I was a huge fan of my geo 2.1 but geo 3 was a huge improvement on the 2.1, so do the math. pay the extra couple hundred bucks. if you get the 2.1, and then later get to shoot a friend's geo 3, you will wish you got it.

People think the Ego is a jack hammer. The Geo 2.1 feels 1000000 times more like a jack hammer in my opinion. I would just get a Geo3, its defiantly one of the smoother guns I shot this year.

Impossible is a strong word choice lol. You are bound to have bad paint eventually and will break a ball sometime so just be aware that the soft tip bolt will reduce the amount of paint breakage to a minimum not completely stop it. There's a reason Eclipse points it out this way.

I have a geo 3 and an ego 9 with a zick 2 and a hush (so it is basically an ego 10)

Shot a 2.1 and I was not impressed. It was nice but not nice enough to make me buy that and stop using my 09.

Then, I got my hands on a geo 3. It is smooth and quiet and it feels really nice in my hands. Worth the upgrade and using my 09 as a backup/loaner

I'd have to say go with the geo3.

I just got a new geo 3, took it in the back yard, threw on a deadly winds barrel, ball on ball, barely any kick, and I mean BARELY any. I would defiantly go with a geo 3, I had a 2, and don't get me wrong, it's a great gun, but IMO the geo is worth the extra money, you can customize to what you want, if u shoot brittle paint, put in the soft tip and turn the sfr down, u can now shoot the most brittle paint without any chops, there is not that option on a 2/2.1

3 if you can afford it. If not you will be happy with a 2.1 as well. We have both and both shoot well. 2.1 not as quiet and efficient but with a 68/4500 you will get at least 5/6 pods.

Man, I was gonna start a thread and ask a similiar question abt the differences of the 2 vs 2.1 but after reading this thread might wait a lil longer and get the 3.
