Well guys I know in some of the last post it looked to be as if I had decided to go with a clone gt.

I am here today to say I have jumped on the luxe band wagon. After much research the good the bad and all the above I felt like if I wanted to buy new I should get a luxe. Nothing against the gt as I plan to start my search for a lightly used one here in the next few weeks for my back up.

One factor for me was the upgraded platform coming out for the clone. Still no word on final release and I wanted to buy a gun as gti not upped to a gti and could not get an eta. Not even a reply on fb or anything.

That said the new electric splash is in assembly and I expect it to reach me in a week or so.

Ill be sure to post some pics- if any body sees a good deal on a gt let me know.

Already have my new Luxe on the way - but I do appreciate this post/comparison.

1- I like the GT alot and at one time was my favorite as far as looks are concerned. After looking longer and harder I think it fell second to the luxe mainly because of the square milling. Reason 2 I got away from the GT was I am in the market NOW for a gun and could not get an answer/ETA on the Gti. I wasnt interested in getting one then sending back in for the upgrades. Last but not Least on the GT - I do NOT care for the Screen being on the side of the grips AT ALL. Shoots great yeah - somewhat efficient yes but not for me.

2- GEO - IM a PE fan - always have been. Went away from it because I really wanted to go macroless. I think the value drops toooo quick on them. And from the reviews its just not quite as quiet as what I am looking for.

You mentioned VAPOR - Ive read plenty of reviews and never really got that WOW factor I was looking for. Im sure its a great gun but I would really need to spend some time with one to take it over the 3 posted above. I know barrels DO not matter much since you can get whatever you want but I do not care for the barrel kit it comes with either....I do however like freak inserts - and PE shaft barrels.

I am now looking for my second " High End " gun. My current choices/options are as follows in no specific order.

1- Vanquish
2- LV1
3- Vapor ?!? ( I know there is a million and one reason why a gun chops a ball but there are way too many Vapor videos where I see blended paint coming out the barrel )
4- Ripper

Heavily leaning towards the LV1 just because I love PE and would like having 2 different style guns. But something about that RIPPER really has my attention just have not figured it out yet.


Ripper OR Lv1 ? I could almost buy a Vanquish simply for the fact the customer service is so damn good.

Get a shocker if you're looking at the Vanquish, lol.

I'd vote the LV1. I'm a professed PE fanboy, and the Ego has always been a very solid platform. My guess is that the LV1 will hold its value a lot better too.

Shocker is more of a luxe than the vanquish

This is most likely what I am going to do. I dont even need to shoot a PE gun to make a decsion on it where as a would WANT to shoot a ripper or vanquish before spending that much money.

Plus like stated - it would be better to have a gun to switch with thats a completely different feel.

I have owned a few egos and am VERY VERY curious as to how much smoother this LV1 might be. My egos where nice but def had some kick and lift to them.

Not sure who all has seen this vid of the LV1 but if you havent check it out.

I am pretty settled on getting the LV1 as my second marker. I am just about as excited about this as I was before I picked up the Luxe. SOOOOOO Check it out. Whats your thoughts.

I have never really liked Egos, personally been a BLAST fan as far as poppet markers go, but I NEED to shoot an LV1 after watching that video.

Lime w/black accents and black or white/silver w/orange accents look ****ing amazing with the black grips. ANSgear is going to be selling the colorswaps and I assume some other sites will as well.
