The Autococker was the highlight for me. Don't like the looks of the Ego, impulse, or Vanquish

DAMN!!!!!!!

I just cant help it. The more and more I look at the Ego LV1, the more and more I feel like they made a mistake. I am not trying to offend anyone here. I just think it is a major step back in looks compared to the dead sexy 11. If you are going to go macroless, then just do it. No gimmicky b/s. It would have been perfectly fine for them to go macroless even though I believe Jack had stated before that they would not follow that trend. Just come out and say you changed your mind. But this.....well this just stinks of "I want to save face" but jump on the macroless wagon. Again, not trying to offend anyone. Just my .02. I think Bob, MacDEV, and DLX have the "look" of a macroless marker figured out. I am not real impressed with how any of these new things look.

End rant.

Nick have you gone and read anything on the new VL1 EGO? I know the body and line running from the triger gaurd looks wierd. I thought the same thing when i first seen it. But after reading some of the the new sh!t (at work..lol)that they did to the internals is amazing!!!! Not just because im a PE fan. Look at everything before you judge to harsh.

P.S. I really really really want one!!!!

OK, I have been checking out the LV1 thread. I have to say, once they released the pictures of the other colors, and the internal cutaway, I am thoroughly impressed with the technical and mechanical aspects of this new Ego. I am still not won over by the front grip, but one of the guy's who tested it, pointed out that the line enters the HPR in the relatively same spot as the old ego. That has never got in my way, and if you still don't like it they made it to where you can put on a SL3 collet and standard oops. I think it will just take a little getting used to.
I guess the operating pressure is stupid low....like spoolie low...so now your ego won't sound/kick like a cannon....but still have poppit efficiency...

Dude, thank you Grant! I thought I was the only one that understood what was going on with the ego lv1...there is SO much going on here! All of the major components are removable by hand...no tools...the hpr, lpr, rammer and the entire valve assembly. The new cam lever valving system sounds amazing, and should considerably reduce turbulence within the valve chamber during a firing sequence. Two rammers...one for smoother shots and the other for faster rates of fire...not to mention the longer design with multiple dampening processes. Then there's the INSANE ergonomics...I don't believe there's been a gun this cozy looking since the NTs. I love that there is no lpr cap and that it is now internalized...which pushes your hands even closer to that more natural shooting position. The gas tube is being way over analyzed as well in my opinion...it looks crazy, but it's what works with jack woods philosophy on gun design...it's not for everyone, for sure, but it's effectively a very nice middle ground for players who want a macro less gun. Also I'm a BIG lurker paintball fan...Ryan from lurker paintball personally helped design the valve system...and he knows just a tad bit about tweaking air systems for maximum performance and smoothness...he designed the shocker eigen bolt and the Timmy eigen rams. And to top it all off an updated bolt (like the Ego 11 Dart), updated rammer (zick 3), sl4 regulator, same sweet LCD control module, adjustable solenoid, and every other goody egos have to offer...
I'm not trying to say its better then anything out there...for anyone that knows me, I would own about every gun on the market if I had the money...I just think for me personally, the ego lv1 is as close to perfection as a gun can get. I really have nothing but praise for planets latest gun and I can't wait to shoot one soon!

You must have posted around the same time as me last night. Glad you were able to check it out and see all of the amazing advancements Ian! Also the gas line is getting a ton of flack for as little of an impact as it will have on the player...it may look different, but that's what we're getting here...something radically different...and whenever there is change, things are bound to get upset around the applecart.
Unless you like stroking your front reg while you play, I don't see you even noticing the small gas line is even there.

Probably in the price range of the Geo 3...$1350 I believe. I'm eyeballing midnight for sure...super blue looks pretty damn amazing though...in the video with Nicky T it looks amazing!
Probably won't be able to pick one of these beauty's up for a few years anyways, unless the paintball god's allow some overtime/tax return/other randomness of cash flow to make it's way into my wallet pocket...oh well, by then these puppy's should be going for $950 on ansgear, or I might be able to pick up a newish one from some goofball that bought it new, used it twice, and decided it wasn't the gun for him/her. Either way one of these puppies is going to weasel it's way into my gearbag...and I'm not selling stuff for this one...it's just going to take time.

Grant, every time PE releases a gun they start with 5 or 6 initial colors. Then later in the year they release another batch to boost sales. Sometimes they have done it 2 or 3 times. Don't forget the hundreds of ano variations ANS does. The color palette will improve. I must say it looks the best in midnight. But I think that is because it keeps the black front grip from being the center if attention. I think the color combos that focus on black accents will be killer. I can't wait to see an Olive/Black or Khaki/Black or a nice Trooper edition. They sure did some awesome things to it. Can't wait to see one. Looks comfy.

Ok ok ok...got to admit it that the "shock" of the looks is wearing off. I watched the vids, read the explanations of the technology changes, etc and it looks like they really redesigned the entire platform. It will be interesting to see how this new ego does.

Vanquish may look kooky too, but the video with Simon explains some of the features...looks like a pretty solid gun. One Allen screw is required to maintain the ENTIRE gun, bolt is keyed like the axe, the gun does look like ergonomicaly it will fit good in hand, and the switchblade style body sounds interesting.
Oh, and the new cyborg teaser is up! Like we needed another badass gun to plague our wallets! Can't wait to see this thing either...that rx I had for awhile was such a nicely built gun! This one will probably be just as well built and it will most likely come stock with the shift 2 barrel, gti software, and an internalized lpr! Awesome!

The marker that has my interest is the J4 Torque. Not that at this point I want 1. But if they can pull of a mechanical marker that shoots like an electro that would be amazing!! Very Low maintenance, small amount of O-rings, and no batteries, sounds good to me. I’m still a little skeptical that they can pull it off. In the video he does not walk the trigger. That makes me believe that it may not be capable of the higher BPS rates. I guess time will tell.

ok so I think I misunderstood. when I saw the video and read the thread I thought the J4 was mechanical. but in the first post it says it will have firing modes. MY BAD. Still somewhat interested.

Josh says they will release several levels of the electro version, then they will probably release the mechanical version...the one he has in the video is mech.

So just took out 1 of my old autocockers, to get it ready for when we do the all Mech game out at Darkside. Now mind you this Marker has been in my closet for years. No leaks!!! it is shooting a little low FBS but still shooting. Amazing markers!!!

That is why I always loved autocockers. The one I bought from Colton hadn't been aired since 2007 I believe. Had a small leak at the Oring where the reg screws into the body. It was all brittle and crusty. Changed it and bada-bing as good as gold. They do shoot so amazing.
