Well, they design them with the "pros" in mind and with they're opinion. Seeing as if this gun is good enough for the"pros" it's good enough for the general public(average joes) as you say.

i think some arent complaining about the rubber, just the abundance of it.. I quickly edited one of the pics to see what it would look like with less rubber and more body and frame and i think it looks a little better. less bulky rubber, who knows maybe it doesnt appear that bulky in person. and i think if the macro was going to get in the way, i think they wouldve tested that before producing it

Im surprised nobody has mentioned that the Angel LED had a similar pipe into the grip frame. I know it had a different purpose but its interesting nonetheless.

Ok i have been a ego/geo fan since they started but this thing is just wrong either get rid of the marco line or keep it where it was.

I see that air hose or tube thing getting broken alot

Also that thing would get in the way oh my hand as well
Won't be buying one of these which will be the first ego/geo i haven't bought.

Any chance of someone posting a pic with the rubber removed from the HPR?

Looks matter in paintball.

In a market where you can spend $300 or less to purchase a 2007 ego, that will get the job done on the field every bit as well as the 2011 ego, the details are important in getting a customer to fork over the extra $1000.

You are going to have some percentage of the community who purchase the newest markers, simply because they are the newest. Another chunk will justify it to themselves that there are enough minute performance gains that they are willing to pay the difference. But another potentially larger percentage of players realize that a marker is a marker, and that you can be an effective player with just about anything. To sell these players marker, the marker cant offer just minute "performance gains" they need to offer an overall more satisfying experience.

Hopefully this this shoots better then it looks. I bet in the hands it feels great but that little hose thing is going to bother the crap out of some...

True but I personally like the way it looks.

if this does come into production they shouldnt have the thing inbetween the reg and the triggerframe, it would stink to switch hands

I like it! Not so sure about the macroline, but i love the fact that they put rubber grips on the reg. Good move on that part, gotta be able to hold your gun when it's wet.

I need to see a picture of someone holding it. I seriously think this is worse than regular macro. All the "WTF why does it still have macro" agglets need to go die now. Thanks for asking for a change.

i don't think it will get in the way. (the macroline) and i think it solves two issues in guns on the market, it moves macroline out of the way of people diving and breaking them, and also allows for ease of switching lines (like jack said). in a macro-less gun, you have to take the thing apart to find the leak. on this marker, you just replace the line.

I cannot keep up with the posts since noon, but has anyone seen a release of colors? So far I see gray/white, green/grey, and a red/white. Looking for something a little more interesting, although Vampire is always nice.

Also, I am sad to see that PE did not continue the hinged grip fram as in the CSL. That was the one attribute that justified the $500 premious for the CSL (to me), since I was getting sick of the screw digging into my hand. Now it is back. Perhaps something to look forward to in an SL LV1.

Am looking forward to the stats: weight, efficiency, operating pressure, etc.

i wouldve been happy with just the internal lpr as the newest/only feature for the 2013 ego, this is where the quote "less is more" comes to mind lol

One thing I did notice on the pics is the pops is attached with grubs rather than the old T style
Maybe if the rubber was tan on the colour s it might not look so strange

They didnt make the change, your beloved did. Cry elsewhere, you got your innovation.

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.
