Geo 3 or luxe

So I have a geo 3 and really love it, but I think I want a luxe 2.0. Can you give your opinions on which gun is better. Keep in mind Efficiency, Aesthetics, reliability, The actual shot, ect..

Our opinion about aesthetics is really irrelevant isn't it?

The geo is going to be more efficient and is simpler which is generally understood to mean more reliable.

The luxe is smoother (better shot quality) and quieter.

I am not a fan of either to be honest. My personal preference would be a clone or vcom.

The clone is a good idea, the V-COM will only get you 1100-1300 shots, it is designed purely on two things:
1. to slide into the victory
2. to be quiet

If you like a spool valve then the VCOM won't give you near the performance the marq engine will. The clone is quiet, smooth, and efficient.

I wish more people would actually watch this video instead of just assuming the VCOM is a quiet marq.

I bought my Geo3 when they came out and wanted to shoot a Luxe forever... Never had one come out to our field to try so I orderd one. Shot them both for a few weeks and sold the Luxe 2.0

Very nice shot but the trigger guard is terrible in my opinion and effeciency is just not there for me. Playing with them back to back I kept the Geo3 and sold the Luxe.

Geo3 will be more reliable and efficient, but Luxe 2.0 has a better shot quality.

I have not had a geo3 (I have held one though), but i have had a luxe, and it is ok, not my favorite though. I love the grips/ nav console that are on the geo (same as the csl I have), very comfortable. They are fairly close, It is more of a would you rather game now... (smoother vs more efficient, Luxe ergos Vs geo ergos, Reliability vs smoothness, Ect.)

Lol, why'd you quote me? I didn't suggest one or the other because I really don't like either of them. Personally, I'd even take a clone vx above either one and if I was paying for them then I'd consider a drone before a geo and a shocker over a luxe. They're 2 designs that don't impress me.

I really am partial to the way it looks for one. The Annos are unparalleled. But in terms of performance it is incredibly smooth and reliable. I personally think the only downside is the efficiency, and most people wouldn't really need to shoot 9 pods a game anyway. Clone gt is also always an option, the macdev fanboys will agree.

Just agreeing with your thoughts on the two. Didn't think it would be too hard to figure out .....

Geo3
Personally the Geo3 feels much better in the hand to me
And while the Luxe is definitely quieter, the Geo3's shot is nice
I can't really describe the shot compared to the luxe but it just has this nice feel to it.
