I'm curious if having less material in the trigger guard for the air to pass though weakened it a significant amount.

My concern is that PE has gone half way to being hoseless, and not achieved anything because of that. There are two major benefits to being hoseless:

1) Aesthetics - the LV still has a hose, so this benefit isn't achieved. You could argue its much smaller now, so I guess we've half achieved this point.
2) Ergonomics / comfort - the LV still has the macro line in an area that fingers should be, so this benefit isn't achieved.

So based on that, I'm not sure what the point is in having the macroline where it is other than just a point of difference. (But if there is one feel free to point it out)

Other than that though, this marker sounds like its got some very interesting things going on under the hood. PE tend to push the boundaries and challenge the norm in marker design, and I'm sure this will be well received once people have had time for the change to sink in.

Another Eclipse gun with a macroline.. Pass

They moved the macroline to a more annoying area where your hand is going to rub on. Fail on eclipse, why not just suck up your words jack and just give into the demand of macroless guns.

I'm still trying to figure out where this piece is located exactly though.
I'm thinking it's the gasket @ 40

Well after this great day gone wrong
I did a mock up with my luxe and set a key with tape...... And let me say that that line gets in the way.
Well it all depends on the rubber grip to make the difference but the key is thin. The line on the lv1 looks About 1/4" or more. So it's busted on my side



I can use a bigger size of key but with the one I used just felt so wrong. Why even bother to use a thicker size

This post only further proves my inner thoughts on the intelligence level of the average luxe owner. The ergonomics are nowhere near the same on the two guns so this is a null test.

Its not but the line feels so wrong.
It's a thought and that line is........

What else can be done?!?
Drop over $1200++ for something that doesn't feel comfortable.
The quietness might bye some people and what ever else all the fan boys will say.
But buy a high end car and you get performance and comfortability

awesome post Alex! The internals are refreshed. My boss thought of the Thunder/Alley Cat as another marker that succeeded at reducing kick, by indirectly striking the valve. I'm sure people will be impressed.

The vanquish is more a traditional ugly, this is the hottest gun I've seen with the stupidest hose thing I've ever seen. Doesn't seem practical, doesn't seem comfortable in any way.
I'll opt for the traditionally ugly gun over an awesome looking gun with a retarded fish frog macroline.

Hoseless. Or traditional hose please.
This hose/tube thing actually ruined my day.

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.
