Thanks dudes. Lots of adjustability here with the flow adjusters and the different rammers.

Woke up today and suddenly I liked the AT pipe thing. Don't know why, but it seemed OK now.

I am sure Jack probably looked at it day after day, until he got use to it.

In case anyone doesn't already know the ego is now 3 decibels lower when shooting than the geo 3.

While I'm not overly impressed with the efficiency numbers from that Greenspan video, I'm not disappointed either. 2 things seem clearly evident with this new Ego. One...it looks smooth as butter shooting. As smooth as ANY poppet currently available. Two.....it has, dare I say, a pleasing sound to it. Both are features all players love, and I wondered for years if I would be able to see/hear such from an Ego. I absolutely can not wait to get one of these guns in my hands to take for a spin.

BTW if you did bend your frame instead of trashing PE over it you should send them a thank you letter for the broken wrist they saved you. There's a reason the frames were designed like that and it was for protection. If you screw up a dive that bad something bad is going to happen and the small expense of a replacement frame is a fraction of the price you'd spend on medical bills. Now how about we get back on topic!
TO be honest, I think the concern for it was that if you keep the grip through air, and end up taking a bad dive how badly would you get hurt? I don't know how it escalated to the point where people are calling other people trolls and haters for not liking P.E when everyone is entitled to an opinion and people who reject that fact are either retarded, or too insecure to admit that their brand of choice has some issues. I for on am not a fan of bending safety frames but that's because here in Canada instead of paying $200 for a bent frame I would rather break my wrist as it's free for me to recover.

posted on another forum by wildwayz a friend of mine

Today I took part in the UK's Northern Leg of the UWL, and Jack and the PE lads were there playing.

Right, bit of background. I have been playing paintball since 2004-2007, then left and came back November 2011. I am someone who doesnt fall in love with their markers and have been through owning... Mini, Creed, GEO2.1, CloneVX, Empire Sniper, Demon (2013 internals), Creed (again), EGO11+DART, Axe LTD PDD and Alien Invasion 2012 (both used and 2nd hand).
So I have touched almost every high end marker out there other than the DLX kind...


Anyway, Jack (who I never met before) was true to his word on the other post, let me have a look at the LV1. It feels balanced, tiny bit longer feeling than the EGO11, but it is better than I expected in the flesh (or metal). What I didn't expect was that he said that I could go out and play a game or two with it.

So off I went, played a game and went from the start gate, jumped a ditched and lost my footing and did a pretty awesome roll, making sure to remember my tourny days and go 'palms up' - so I protected the LV1.. and learnt that those shotgun-proof GI Pods can handle a 21stone guy rolling over them!

Anyway back to the LV1. I HATE poppets but I love the LV1. It is quieter than the EGO11 with DART. It is smoother than an Ego11 with DART. It actually, to me, felt more like a spool valve marker. No joke there. I was very impressed.
The guys had it set up to shoot around 265fps (limit is 280fps) and it just felt great.

Anyone who moans about the rubber foregrip - jesus, every marker i've owned i've put an Exalt grip on it - so this to me, is a bonus!
The air passage tube does NOT get in the way. There is no way you'll break this in game - not unless you somehow fall on a fence.
It also feels natural with your palm resting gently against it for support.

When I gave it back to Jack, he then spent some time to show me how to strip it down and explain what each bit does. I cannot tell you how easy it is to strip this marker down WITH NO TOOLS.

Am I sold on the LV1? YES. Did I want to get one before I saw it? No. How about now? YES!!
Shame I cannot afford it :/

PS - could have got it for free but I am honest
(Guys, don't leave your shiney marker at the far end of the woods all alone when you've all gone back to base to re-pod up )
I think Jack was a little shocked at how honest I was and that it could have easily have gone missing!

Anyway, thank you again Jack for letting me try out the LV1 and taking the time to talk to me. Some day i'll hopefully own one!

Yeah the mic changes sensitivity but lubens vid was pretty good. His also showed how accurate it was. That grouping was tight unlike most egos.

I would guess about half a case. Figure 20 rounds/cubic inch (1400/70) * 50 ci = ~1000. Could be off though.

I just had PE tech class with new ego. I must say that it looks great.
Awesome new stuff inside, almost everything redesigned.
Grip of marker is quite easy, new frame gives you some special shape to grip but in my opinion it's comfortable, think its better than in old egos.
New rammer, bolt, inline lpr... It has never been so many changes in egos.
Didn't have chance to fire it but seems that sound signature is more like geo than tippman 98
Hope to buy one soon, will se how expensive it will be.

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.
