Way too general of a question...the short answer is, they are all good. If you're looking to compare specific guns from each company your best bet is to post a thread in the Versus forum otherwise if a mod sees it they'll likely just move it there anyways.

It comes down to preference. When you break the $1000 mark all guns are pretty much the same. They all can shoot up to 30bps they are all electronic with eyes, etc etc.

That's like saying an ego is the same as a luxe. Both are great guns, but vastly different.

Well, the luxe talks to you... So obviously, it has to be the best

I know their are a lot of fan boys out their, but also look at company's backing.

The only 2 company's I noticed that have been phenominal have been Bob long and Macdev. Never any problems. I always had bad luck with other brands. but try all guns and see what U like.

ego/geo easier to maintain. doesn't shoot as smooth as macdev, luxe and bob long.

Three gun below shoot smooth and quiet.
macdev doesn't feel ergo to me.
bob long = pressure sensitive gun, need certain degree of tunning.
Luxe = talking gun, need alot of tunning

This is the wrong forum for that. Post VS threads here: http://www.pbnation.com/forumdisplay.php?f=828

This has been covered ad naseum anyway, but a synopsis is:

Geo: Shoots like a low/ mid end gun but feels nice in hand. MacDev's drone shoots better/ on par with the geo3 at ~$900 less.

Luxe: I hate the ergos and it is dang inefficient. I also don't like the board.

BL: The spool engine may be a legitimate threat to the clone. You can't go wrong with BL.

MacDev: I honestly think they make the best spools on the market. Smoother, quieter and more efficient than most. I also don't mind the ergos. I'd say the clone is a safe bet, and it's only competition should be the v3 vic.

Vcom smooth quiet needs some degree of tuning
Clone gt close to the from just a hair louder and slight more kick but also more air efficient and no tuning of lpr. Also soon to have gti internals

I would agree with the Geo part on any of them before the 3. The Drone I shot did not shoot that good to be honest. Maybe it was just that specific one but I don't know...

The geo 3 just doesn't impress me. Sorry, but I think it's pretty terrible considering price.
