V2 Victory vs. Luxe

How do these guns compare in terms of ergonomics, sound, smoothness, and weight?

Ergos: personal preference

Sound: Luxe is quieter

Smothness: Luxe, but the Vic is incredible considering its not a spoolie

No clue on the exact weights.

I would keep in mind that the victory is now coming out with a spool engine as well

And that would convince me to choose Victory. I massively prefer the ergos on my Victory (I hate the feel of the luxe), I hate the board on the Luxe, and I really want the VCOM to try it out on my Victory.

Okay, thanks guys. It sounds pretty even, so I'll see if I can try them out at my field.

That's your best bet.

The Victory will be more air efficient also if that's something you care about (at least with the poppit engine I don't know what the spool efficiency numbers look like).

Weights: I don't know the exact weights either but I'd be willing to bet the difference is unnoticeable.
Smoothness: Probably the Luxe but only by a hair if you're talking the poppit engine. Again the difference isn't going to be night and day.
Sound: Luxe but not by much

Ergos are a push.

Thanks. I guess ergos are gonna be the biggest factor for me then.

Then definitely try to feel both. For every person like me (thinks the Luxe is the least comfortable marker in their hands (excpting some Mags and Angels) in 18 years of playing), there's someone who finds it to be the absolutely most comfortable marker they've ever used.

I would say the Luxe wins in all those catagories. But I'm waiting to try out my V-Com Victory

v2 victory with spool engine is smoother than luxe and more efficient. You can't go wrong with it.
