Aw..its heavier than the FX. FX is/was 1.89 with the barrel. I wonder if DP would be able to shave some of it down for the production model. That was kinda the only con I had for the g5. IMO, it looked like they could have shaved some weight off from the frame in the g5, possibly even the new fusion.

I loved the g4's weight. The macroless design is making them taller.

This doesnt seem much taller to me than an ego. If it seems that way, it may just be the design of the new frame that LOOKS taller. Also, you have to remember that the FX noid was a different shape that what i am assuming the noid in the FE is shaped like since its a new noid all together. Have to make room for it.

As for the weight, i actually prefer a bit more weight to my markers. If you go too light, you get barrel rise no matter how you tune it.

Never understood why people want a light marker to be even lighter. Even if you are playing for an entire straight day like a scenario something slightly heavier than 1.89lbs is not something one should be concerned about. Afterall, you have a full hopper of paint, tank, and barrel. 0.50 - 1lb difference is not noticeable at all.

Until markers are made from carbon fiber, worrying about the weight of newly released speedball markers is a bit silly.

1 lb 9.8 oz = 1.6125 lb

1.89 lb = 1 lb 14.2oz

Do we know what the FE weighs with barrel or what the FX weighs without barrel? Then it's apples to apples, especially when you understand basic math and measures of weight.

Im just saying that the weight was my favorite part about the g4 and FX. And the g4 to g5 was a noticeable difference.

I notice it. Lol its not much of a difference, you are right, but its like switching from a regular stiffi barrel to a metal free stiffi barrel. Or a stock FX ram to a TechT law ram. I was just stating my opinion and don't understand why its attracting flames.

By that you mean that you only notice them when they are separate, not playing in an actual game... When it actually would matter. Got it.

Exactly! I never did say anything about the weight in game.

But anyways, are the owners of the prototypes allowed to post shooting vids before the production line is released?

Plan on picking one of these up ASAP... Hopefully there will be all kinds of upgrades available from DP or others (Techt). It seems like its gonna shoot like a high-end poppet and if that's the case then count me in. $700 bucks for the features set described... Just can't wait. Wonder if it will out shoot my up'd FX???

In response the weight thing... Have u ever held an Axe???

DP don't make upgrades on their product. Techt and APE does some support if the demand is high. but I don't see much review from anyone about this gun. I'm not a poppit guy so I know I wont be buying this but that doesn't mean I don't fully support DP and its community.

I don't think there has been an official comment or announced release date yet.
