Honestly though, I doubt they would introduce another gun in that price range, considering that is where the Axe Pro (Axe w/ Redline) sits right now. I would be surprised if it comes in at less than a grand.
Damn.

Also, is it just me? Or does lemanski's hopper front look suspiciously like the high cap shell we've been hearing about...

Definitly different hoppers. Maybe a Z2 with a V2 shell.

I don't think so, looks like a Z2 with a larger capacity nose. The V2 shells have a shinier finish

Scion doesn't have toolless disassembly, so it doesn't have that line across the middle splitting the shell in half.

That line is difficult to see on the hopper in the back. Just look at the lack of screw holes.

That is the new 240 round shell. Infamous and dynasty both have them but why won't empire release the shell to the public? Also what in the world is up with the grip on the teal axe. I know it's taped up but why?

Why would they tape up a red line v2? It would make sense.to put new internals in the existing.housing. the tape is probably there for.grip.

Maybe a different mill pattern they didn't want to reveal yet, I dunno.

I'm dumb. I honestly didn't notice how severely it was taped up. I imagine this is a prototype featuring a new mounting system. See how the tape extends to, heavily, cover where it mounts at. I mean empire seems good about listening to people, and people have complained about the ****ty mounting of the foregrip. And it looks much longer that a normal axe foregrip. So I guess I was wrong, maybe not a redline v2 but something is in the works.

He most likely just taped it up for grip/comfort and because of the rain and not wanting to fry his board...not everything with tape on it is a prototype

Redlines are waterproof already, no need for tape.

Yeah that axe everyone's talking about ... I don't think he's hiding anything ... He don't wear gloves so that's the only grip he's got ...

But, wasn't that color scheme a "exclusive color" from ANS for a basic axe? He might not have had a redline and may have had a stock grip, and therefore justifying the need for tape.

Tell that to the 2 redline boards I've fried throughout this season due to rain/water

Even if he had to tape it for grip there is no need for two rolls worth. Plus it goes way to high and over the barrel. Who knows maybe he likes the front grip 2" thick.
