Whats the best high end???

I sold my car and now have enough money to buy any marker I want but have no idea which one to buy. I've shot most of the high ends but it is still hard to choose that's why I would like to get some advice from you guys!

Pick the one you like the best, since you've shot most of them.

Choose the one you like the most of the ones you've shot. Ergo and personal preference is 90% of what you think is the best.

Although I'll put in a small bump to say check out the Clone GTi

To the way the gun feels isn't a big deal to me I could get used to anything I've had a couple guns from an ego to an axe which I'm currently using.. I care more about the ball on ball accuracy and how small the spread is when shooting and I do prefer spoolies but have not had the chance to shoot an lv1 which I heard was fantastic

It all comes down to you. Figure out which one is best for you. A budget would help with suggestions though. If there is no budget, well, what company do you wish to support the most?

True I think I can get used to a gun too. Its not like they feel like a 2 by 4 n **** lol. All guns are made to be comfy I guess.
Lucky that you're in that situation to buy any gun. Planet eclipse are really consistent. So an lv1 under boring would probly get +-2fps.
Their are also some guns coming out and since you have an Axe maybe you can wait and use the Axe till any of those guns come out.

Then stick with whatever you have. The marker doesn't affect accuracy, the player does. Using good paint and keeping your gear absolutely SPOTLESS will mean the paint goes closer to where you point the marker.

Machine Vapor hands down. Version 1.




In all seriousness this thread is AWOB. Everyone will obviously state their personal favorite for one reason or another. Just find the one that you like and go with it. All of the high ends put out a pretty darn good product.

New luxe?? I didn't know that. That's pretty cool. It has to have a pressure sensor like gti and the new vanquish. And led. Lol

Luxe, or LV1. I use a luxe 2.0 personally, and love it. Over 50k shots and not a single chop or ball break. No issues, and no complaints whatsoever.

LV1's are crazy nice. A team mate of mine has one and it is the ONLY other marker I would consider shooting over my luxe.

The Luxe will be high on my list AFTER they get away from talking boards and start using 9v batteries. Built in pressure monitoring like the GTi and Vanquish would be a welcomed bonus also.

The no 9v battery thing (in my opinion) is great. I LOVE not having to worry about picking up 9 volts. A full charge will easily get you 4-6 months of play without having to charge it.

As far as the talking board goes, you can turn the voice off if its bothersome. (again, just another personal preference, i'm not saying you're wrong )

I do think the built in pressure monitoring is neat, but I wouldn't use it as establishing that marker A with pressure monitoring is better than marker B without pressure monitoring

Because they spent a lot of money on it and therefore have rose tinted glasses regarding the gun.

Once you get above $500 or so personal preference is about the only thing that matters. Since you said earlier you don't care about feel then why, exactly, do you want to get a new gun?

Your comments about "ball on ball" accuracy mean nothing. Any high end will easily do +/- 5 or less over a chrono if you feed it with good paint. If one gun was inherently more accurate than everything else on the market there would quickly be no other guns on the market because everyone would use the one with the inherent accuracy advantage.

Gun doesnt affect accuracy, its all about paint quality.
Played with my Lv1 on Sunday, shooting a case of Marb and shot straight as an arrow.
Got a free case of Heat with a membership renewal to use at the end of the day. Kiss my accuracy and chrono consistency goodbye.

Save some cash get a V1 victory (4c eyes) with the lower grip hole that's toward the back not centered and a Freak DW fibur barrel.

V1 should run about $500-$600 and you can add Vcom later for that spool butter feel.

edit::

found this if still avail for a low price of $400

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...ght=victory+4c

buy at own risk but if legit that's a smoking deal.
