Alright Mr Wood, can we please see a video about you going through the Marker and possibly some shooting. I seriously don't care how it looks, I'm just a little disappointed that you brought out the HDE version of the Ego 11 so late in its lifecycle. Now I really want the LV1 and only just got my Ego HDE a few weeks ago and shot 2 cases through it. I guess I have to find a buyer for the 11 now, but can you please bring out the HDE colour scheme earlier.

Have patience, there will be a video for sure with Jack explaining everything about the LV1 in the upcoming days.

There will always be people that just bought a new marker when a newer / new model comes out, you can't go around that.

A smart thing would be to sell the grip and HPR grips in different colors

Yes different colors
Also new anodize colors. Try splash or gloss finish

Well, Jack said the front grips were easy to change out, maybe they will. Black would've been an easy starting point, and would've allowed PE to order in enough volume to keep the price down a bit. If this gun is going to be THE Ego for a long while, I'd be willing to bet we'll see some sort of replacement/color kits for the rubber sooner or later.

This may have already been stated or asked, and if it hasn't, well then it needs to be asked. What is the main difference between the two rammers? Will each of the rammers give the gun a different level or performance? Kick? efficiency? LPR and HPR Pressure? Why give 2 rammers? why not stick with the traditional way of doing it and providing one rammer with the gun? Do the two different rammers provide different mechanical or fluid dynamics with the gun? Will they provide a noticeable difference in shot quality and accuracy?

1 is heavier and is supposed to provide a smoother shot. The other is milled down and lighter and is supposed to provide better efficiency. I didn't notice more kick from the 2nd rammer but did get better efficiency so I just stuck with that one.

Jack wood: The Standard rammer offers the benefit of allowing the LV1 to run at the lowest possible operating pressures. It is perfect for shooting the most fragile paint or when looking for the quietest shot. The Lightweight rammer on the other hand offers exceptional efficiency. A small increase in operating pressure and the associated small increase in sound signature are the only penalties.

Jack,

Since the LVL 1 is a new direction for the Ego will you continue to make SL versions? What would you call it?

If you don't is there any reason why?

This. I really wish they would bring back the old school splashes like they did on the old school Angels, Mags, and Cockers. Maybe a limited edition one or a super limited SL version of the LV1 will have a nice splash? Lets try not to get too far ahead of ourselves, but it would be nice.

Well considering PE has made a SL every year since 06 I would imagine so, but the LV1 just came out so I wouldn't expect it at least until closer to the end of the year. Just speculation here, but I would imagine it would have some inspiration from a Mercedes line, since Jack likes them a lot. I'm also kind of curious if they will ever make another SL Geo. I know they only had 10 SL91s that were mostly given to PE employees and a couple sold on EBay for an astronomical price! I did like that Jack sold his personal SL91 for charity. Goes to show what a great company PE is!

I can't believe this!!! The LV1 has been public for 2 days and people are asking about an SL?! Good lord...just enjoy the gun people!! I guarantee everyone will agree that it will outshoot anyone's SL to date...or any other gun on the market IMO...so I see no need for an SL!

I was thinking the same thing, but then again it is PBN.. I was merely answering the poster above mine's question about what it would be called and if they would release it. I have no idea what PE will do, but I think we should wait for the shooting video and personally shoot them before worrying about the SL. So on that note, when is the LV2 coming out??
