Seriously though, the DM13 may not have a million new features, but you know you are getting a good product that preforms well.

You got to remember that it's all about that ca$h money .

"Preform"? Does that mean its performing the exact same as it always has?

Yes, but like I said: it's all about the money. If people are dumb enough to buy a DM13 when a DM6 works just as well, then Dye has found a good way to make money. Joke's on us

I thought the internals and looks of the DM series was the same since the DM9?
And not only that, the DM series is the same as the PM series? (I think it was the PM8 that was better than the DM9...? Correct me if I am wrong.)

I can understand the I4 and clothing looking the same, but the hopper and marker need a damned make over. From past experiences, WGP sat on their ***** without making a marker for so long, by the time they decided to remodel their line, it was already too late.

With the rotor, dye needs to at the very least release their own version of a seed kit. I only use my rotor to compare speedfeeds at this point, and I still get jams when emptying the thing.

The shell of paint is often the same color as the fill, so from across the field with clear hoppers it can look like you have a loader hit when in fact it's just the paint inside, or just make it really hard to distinguish when you actually are hit.

yea I guess dye believes that people will buy dm13s more this upcoming season than they would have bought dm12s. I applaud eclipse for holding off til they actually make changes. I wonder if sales of ego 11s have done worse than an ego 12 would have. As already said it's all about the money. Dumb people will actually sell their Dm12s and go buy a Dm13 even though there is hardly a difference.

You do realize all these companies are in biz for the money right? Some just do a better job at hiding that fact.

the whore in me wants one, the tan/red one
to be precise. but there's just no way I could
possibly justify spending that much on it, and
considering I've just acquired a bnib Geo 3, I
am pretty sure my wife would think this to be
grounds for divorce. and I'd have to agree lol

Of course that was the whole point of my post. Dye feels it can make more money by putting out this gun because more people would buy the same gun with a different title over the same gun with the same title. Eclipse seems to think that they can make money more efficiently by actually making significant changes before they put out a new marker with a new title. And I think that is the better method for customers and companies. The price of your used gun isn't guaranteed to drastically drop every year. I also find it amusing that people will pay more for dm13s at this point instead of saving hundreds by keeping their dm12s or buying one of the brand new dm12s still out there.

I think the DM13 is nicer than the 12, although it's identical functionally. Maybe people who didnt like the 12 will opt for the 13? If I were in the market for a new gun and had the $ for a DM I would get the 13, but probably only because I dont have a 12. People will spend their money however they want, but its up to the consumers how well a gun sells. I can't blame Dye for making something people will want and buy.

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.
