Are you guys serious? There is no $250 price hike. Luxes have always sold for $1500.

^^^^^ this guy gets it haha. Seriously nobody was complaining about 1500dollar 2.0's and now that they are making an OLED Luxe with a NEW case for the same price they want to know what makes it so special.

Images of a new case were recently leaked and it was assumed the case was for a new Luxe marker. Im not sure who leaked these images or how they got them but now that theyre out I think its important to clarify what is rumor and what is true.

A Luxe with a new OLED board, and several other minor upgrades will be available for purchase soon. There isnt a lot we can do to the Luxe 2.0 to make it better. The changes we made are comparatively small so were not calling it a 2.5 or 3.0, were simply calling it the Luxe OLED.

Weve been working to bring our customers the best marker available and providing the best customer service in the industry. Although the Luxe might be changing, our dedication to Luxe owners has not. Everyone at DLX is dedicated to ensuring everyone who owns a Luxe feels like theyre part of our paintball family. It isnt just about buying a marker; its about joining a winning team. Really, the news isnt that weve made some changes to the Luxe, the news is that were re-dedicating ourselves to every Luxe owner out there, no matter if the marker is a 1.0, 1.5, or 2.0.

I will have the Luxe OLED at Paintball Extravaganza in late February and will make sure the DLX Facebook page has the latest information regarding when the OLED will be available for purchase. There are plans for an upgrade kit for 2.0s in the future, but for the moment we will be focused on the OLED.
We do still currently have 2.0s, and with the price drop we expect to see an increase in demand.

The marker market has become even more competitive over the years with gun manufactures bringing out better and better products. We still believe that the Luxe is the best marker available, but why not make the best marker even better?

OLED Luxes will have an MSRP of $1,500, non OLED 2.0s will have an MSRP of $1,250 while supplies last.
So much win in this.

I don't think that the length has changed, as the case clearly shows a Non-OLED luxe. What I am more curious about is what's behind the blackout redaction in the one picture and what engine its got in it.... I feel like aside from the OLED there may be some aesthetic milling changes, an ASA change and a core change. I am really looking forward to the reveals and hopeful that the core and OLED are made available to the existing Luxes at some point.

I do feel like it's always a good time to be a LUXE owner. Not a 1.0, a 1.5, a 2.0 owner, but a LUXE owner. I've not had that experience consistently over time with other markers that released an annual refresh and the old stuff becomes a sort of stepchild in the new features department. I am a big fan of the DLX model as I've had my 1.5 since I bought it new from an authorized dealer right before the 2.0's came out. I love having the option to upgrade and keep pace with the new hotness.

So thankful for the way DLX has handled their business since the first Luxes shipped. IMO in the area of customer experience, they act the way other companies talk about acting, but never do.

To show my love it may be time for another Luxe.

Big to DLX

I would think at some point, But probably not right away... Whenever a manufacture starts building something new, logistic can be a bi.... and just getting enough parts to build guns is hard. I would guess that it will be Cup before you get to buy just a grip frame and probably 2-3 months before you can get just a case...

That's why we all (should) have backups though!
I got new 2.0 eyes put into my Luxe 1.0 at World Cup and it has worked flawlessly since.

I have taken my used 1.0 to DLX at both West Coast Open and World Cup and the guys there have treated me like I just purchased a brand new 2.0. The guys at DLX/GOG have had a long and amazing history of providing phenomenal customer service. So not only do you get an amazing marker, but you are purchasing the best customer service on the planet when you invest into a DLX Luxe.

FYI- there were some of the very first 1.0's that had a small issue with body around the eye channel, but it was very few guns, my mountain dew 1.0 is 1 of the 1st test guns and has it. If your at a event bring it by the booth and talk to Keith or Darryl about(who know if I will be there) and they can give you the low down on getting the eye strip to fit correctly.

Correct, all the eye strips are physically the same dimensions and fit all the 1.0,1.5,1.75 & 2.0's and now the Oled, but as I put above, a limited # of the very 1st 1.0's that had issues with eye strip fit.

Not that its needed, but it sounds like they have done small other things too right?

Anyways, DLX really focus on the right things.
They make a fantastic product, they takes care of their new and excicting customers.

I don't think the OLED is necessary, but I doubt that DLX would be doing it if the didn't know the demand was there.

Its nice to know that the company is as loyal to us as we are to them.

OLED is not necessary, for me at least, however I DO need to shave down my power button. I keep turning the gun off mid-game.

Cheaper Case should help keep prices down. I would think $1,650 will be the new price to match the DM line.

I find it amazing that LUXE holds its resale value so well. The markers engine isn't all that air eff. , has to be perfectly oring fitted or it leaks or FSDO but yet its the only marker holding its value right now. I guess hype trumps reality. I will give props, when working a LUXE is super smooth and quiet. I just wonder how long this trend can go with no improvements in the engine design.
