LOL!!

Seeing the list of technical changes, I am nothing short of astounded. I can't wait to get my hands on an SL Version of this gun (being the SL nut that I am).

(Still not fond of the looks, but function before form....)

Agreed. Very well done vid. I laughed at about 2:20 mark where Jack is twirling the grip frame around like he's in the wild west.

Hey Jack,

Just curious, why did you guys at PE decide not to use the single flush screw and mount from the CSL frame?

Congrats on the announcement, cant wait to see what we have to come for the LV1.

Which sucks, because I really liked it on my CSL and have had 0 issues (not hard to not damage stuff if you are careful... )

Not sure what the Colorway is that Jack is assembling in that video... But its my next marker. Thank you PE for always thinking about the player and building the best marker that can be built instead of just releasing minor cosmetic adjustments every year. That is why I will always shoot PE!

You'd think if you bought an $1800 marker, you'd read the manual and realize that particular screw is reverse threaded. Not really, but you have to screw it in the opposite direction than you usually would. But sadly, no.

When would they have realized that when the screw got tighter as they kept turning it...that MAYBE they were going in the wrong direction?

As has been said, because people kept stripping out the head and then we would have to drill the screw out.

It's why we have never done sunken, recessed, or flush screws on any guns before. CSL was a stark reminder of why we haven't done it!

This gun shoots great! It is much smoother than any previous EGO! IMO, it is on par with the best GEO's and other spool guns. It's hard to tell in the video, but the sound signature is also much different than other EGO's. It's a bit different sounding than a GEO3, but I'd say the overall volume is similar or even less!

Here's the video:



And here's a video where I'm actually using a force feed loader

It is waay quieter and smoother than any other EGO. It's on GEO3 level for sure.
