I honestly prefer the looks of the Reflex Rail better. It's got the same board, it's lighter, and shoots almost as good. DMs really need to improve or Dye needs to discontinue them and start making a new marker......

but regardless it's a entry-level gun not preferred for true tournament paintball. it has a plastic frame, plastic eye covers, and no LPR and like you said it shoots "almost as good".

why would dye discontinue the DM line? what else would they supply? why wouldn't the same be said about planet eclipse then

I'm guessing the changes they've made are internal, maybe an lcd/oled display.

Because Eclipse has made innovative changes to their markers with adjustible solenoids for one example. What has Dye done with the DM in the past 5 years other than make it taller and cut some retarded windows in the body? The last Change I can recall was the removal of eye covers and addition of the eyepipes in 08. The DM is a smooth decent shooting marker but the fact that it is still lacking a board with a display and the use of cast aluminium bodies makes me laugh at their price tag. As its been said many times and I agree that the DM lost its edge after 06.

News regarding the DM13. I was discussing today my friend knows a Dye Distributor who explained to him a little about the new DM. The bolt system has changed among other things to maximize efficiency, and it now gets over 12 pods plus a hopper. Think I just leaked a spoiler but I had to tell, couldn't keep it in.

So because a Dye rep said this it's true?

Why would a Dye rep say a falsehood about their marker especially since he didn't say something absurd or something totally rediculous.

12 pods from a DM isn't ridiculous? Have you ever bought a car? Salesmen will tell you what you want to hear.

That's 2-2/12 more pods than a DM12. Doesn't sound too far fetched.

Fixed. That would be a huge gain in efficiency for an annual refresh iteration.

Not bashing the DM's, but a 2.5 pod (350 shot) increase would be drastic and would need to cost something to gain.

We'll see.
Lower volume typically means higher pressure and harder on paint, hence you're giving something up to get the extra 2.5 pods.

Hope you are right, and everyone loves the 13. I'll enjoy shooting something else this year though.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that loved the nt and was hoping it
Would be a new nt. nt11..... That's a whole nother subject but the nt10 was legit and I personally am not a fan of dye at all so don't call me a fan boy(love luxes) but I think whatever the new nt they come out with will blow us away.... Or so I hope.

This reminds me of the year when PE didn't work that much on the 09 ego but brought out the geo becaus thats where all their efforts were
That's why I think the nt will be killer

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
