I agree. The rubberizing in general this year is disappointing.

From what I've been hearing the last two months about this gun I heard late March. I suppose it could be early June if they had to push it back for something they needed to fix.

Yeah they have to fix its looks, could be postponed a while.

Seems like people want a gun to look good and shoot good if they are going to fork over $1500.

Is it me or are paintball markers are getting more and more expensive. Just look at the Vanquish $1,500 and the Luxe is also $1,500 then the Clone GT is $1,400, I bet the Ego LV1 is probably going to cost $1,300. Its getting ridiculous. I am just going to stick with my Geo 2.

I really don't understand why increase the price of a new marker and in my opinion the JT Impulse is way over priced and the Vanquished also

They're more expensive because people are buying less of them... Back when things were flush they could back off the price because they were selling a higher number of units. Now with manufacturing and material prices going up and lower sales they really don't have much of a choice. The thing is, even though you might say that it's shooting themselves in the foot to raise the price with the economy the way it is, the people who've been snatching these types of guns up over the years probably aren't going to be turned away by a 2-300 dollar price difference.

Guns used to cost a lot more. I remember like 8 years ago angel LCD was just stupid expensive.

This gun has good features tho. Good bolt system like the luxe, oled screen which gives u lots of useful info, the fast and easy design to strip any part of the gun. All of these features r great, even looks like its really comfortable like the dm ultralight frame. Personally the luxe grip feels so fat cuz I'm used to the dm.

Glad is doesn't talk... I just can't wait to shoot this to see, hear and feel how it performs.

But yea the looks and price point really does suck. The look can grow on me, the price... Not so much.
