Ego LV1 vs Luxe 2.0 vs Geo 3

My friend and I have been thinking about purchasing one of these markers above. I was wondering what everyone's opinion was about each one.

All are nice. I vote for luxe 2.0 then geo3 then lv1. Geo3 is a solid shooter so either that or luxe 2.0 are win imo. Lv1 is nice too im sure but you have to be an ego/poppit kinda guy.

I have not shot an LV1 yet, but look at the reviews, it is often said to be smoother than a luxe or GT or whatever they compare it to. And it was tested to be quieter than the geo. I would vote EGO all the way.

The LV1 is not, and has not been said to be smoother than either of those markers.

I would say between that and a LP poppet'ed G6R. The new valve design does seem to have changed the sound signature but Im not sure it sounds quieter than a Geo 3, but Ive only seen videos so time will tell I guess.

the lv1 is substantially more quiet than a darted 11. there is a video of a guy who did the comparison.

but id do luxe 2.0 > geo 3 and or lv1. i have never shot an lv1 sooooo yea. and an lv1 is a poppet gun. the geo and luxe are in the same class in terms of being high end spools. but the luxe shoots WAYYYY nicer.

a brand new 2.0 will still be able to be sold for 1100 - 1000 in a year. a geo 3 will be a 700$ gun soon and lv1 will be in 7 months.

They are all very nice. Shoot all three and then buy the one you like the best.

And a brand new 2.0 costs over $200 more new than either of those markers.

Geo 3 proven platform shoots just as nice as any luxe once broken in and cheaper lv1 looks good but people are worried about the rubber just like the vanquish and the airport thru the trigger guard

No, the Geo will never shoot as nice as any Luxe. It's a dump valve spool while the Luxe is a true balanced spool. Also, don't even get me started on "break-in".

The LV1s that a couple members of dynasty were shooting were still clacky though quieter than most egos. Sounded about like a G6R with a HP poppet. Oddly enough the main guns I saw go down in D1 and pro were geo3s.

luxe is the top lv1 and then geo 3 also geo 3 is last because lv1 is a upgraded ego and has more upgraded parts and luxe is always going to be on top till a 3 or a 2.5

A Luxe 2.0 is also $300-$400 more than a Geo or LV1 so do the math and your point is moot.

I believe that the point that the luxe folks are trying to make is that the luxe prices hold up better then the PE prices. I would agree with this, but if your reason for buying a gun is how much you can sell it for then you are playing paintball in a way I just don't get. Certainly resale is part of the equation, but the much larger portions belong to reliability and individual comfort with the gun. IMO all 3 are roughly equivalent in reliability (lv1 is based on PE's rep alone), so again I say to the op get your mitts on all 3 and shoot them and get what you love based on your feel and play style.
