i am interested to see the new geo platform i hope they fix the fact that they are one of the least efficient spoolies on the market and really jump up to compete with macdev and luxe
Sure, the 06-10 was the same. Just with a 1/2 lb difference in weight, 4 different solenoids and 3 different HP regs. Not to mention that they all shoot differently.
IDK what is wrong with your geos, all of mine have gotten great efficiency. 9 pods from a 68/45 with the Geo 1 and 11 pods from a GEO2. Do I ever need more than that durring xball or scenario play? No, and I used to be a corner player on an xball team.
PE won't go macroless, how many times does Jack need to say that for it to sink in. It is the same reason their frames bend, it protects the player.

On dm9 I really like how they milked the inside of the gun to allow for a larger firing chamber. That allowed the gun to be a lot shorter length ways.

i wash all my gear after every single time i play. but i guess that is cuz i always get super dirty
different reg that still operated the same, different noid not really but ok and they still have the same operation with minor tweaks. the ego 7 was by far the best shooting ego before the 11 and now the lv1. the basic operation of the gun has never changed really.. but then again nobody has made any real changes to that in a long while. i guess what turns me off about pe is the people who think becase they have an ego they are amazing and they don't have to take care of their stuff.. i hated when i was working the tech at the field and a kid hands me his leaking ego only to find about 8 lbs of crap in the ram sleeve and wha appeared to be paint in ever nook and cranny of the gun. when they market the gun as bullet proof and people treat it that way than complain to me when i charge them 20 to get it working again that annoys me.

Same. When you suck as bad as I do you tend to get a lot of paint on your gear!


Ugh, just received a shipment from a forum purchase... not PB, but I'm sure you guys can relate. Box looked like it had been beaten to hell before the dude ever taped it up. **** inside has like, 1 thing that is reasonably well protected but everything else is bouncing around, theres little parts everywhere, and theres some nasty looking scratches that I can only assume are the result. Would it kill you to put it in a plastic bag maybe? Its like... if it all works then I would feel like it doesn't necessarily deserve a neutral feedback, but come on

This is something I live by. I get flack for it from people saying I'd rather shoot a ..... It's way smoother. I really can't feel the "kick" or gun move on me. That's just how I hold it I guess. I don't knock people who shoot dlx Mac dev dye ext. I just like to know that a PE gun has never went down on the battle field for me. I know they have for others. But that's my 2

PE has pretty faithfully done a relatively major revamp every 2 years.

05 Ego (first one)


Ego 7 (significant ergonomic changes, lighter weight, faster, bigger valve)


Ego 9 (offset rammer, further ergonomic changes, eventually incorporating an adjustable solenoid)


LV1 (Okay, they took 3 years for this one, levered rammer and BIG valve, not to mention major aesthetic changes)


As for the air transfer tube, I am 100% convinced it was a conscious choice. I would put money down on there being a file on a computer somewhere at PE with totally internal plumbing, and they just decided not to go with it for reasons Jack has stated, primarily it being easier to tech.

I think it's odd when people say PE "hasn't figured out how to go fully macroless." Do you really think that with all of the things Jack has come up with, he couldn't figure out how to make a macroless gun? It's a conscious decision, and he's said he'll never make a fully macroless gun. It's fine to have the opinion that macroless is better, but that quoted statement just isn't true.

Edit: Umami nailed it, didn't read the end of your post lol
