GSL vs OLED

I owned a geo 3.1 and sold it to get my OLED. The Geo 3.1 is a beautiful gun but I think we can all agree that the Luxe platform is smoother. However, the question remains, is the GSL on par with the OLED in terms of smoothness??? Who has shot both extensively and can give a detailed review of their experience?

I have never shot one, but a player at the indoor field we play at says its comparable to a geo 3/3.1. I guess the new bolt was aimed more towards efficiency over smoothness. Not saying this is true, but that's just what I'm told.

Id say the GSL is somewhere between the two. It feels like the bolt doesnt stop as suddenly in its cycle.

It looks to be on par from the extensive comparison videos I have watched.

I own a GSL and have owned several Luxes including a Pooty Luxe prior. I would say the GSL is not as smooth as Luxe, but it is more efficient, dependable than the Luxe. Feel is up to the user, but I like the GSL feel.

I would say a major reason a luxe may seem smoother is becauseit weighs a bit more so higher mass helps stabalize "kick".

All these guys that say it shoots like a geo3 are wrong. The lv1 frame helps add rigor yo the structure similar to why rally cars have roll cages. The new bolt design also has a different feel to it and because the gsl has a different dynamic to dwell tuning, you can achieve a very very very quiet shot if you have your settings properly.

I wouldnt say the luxe is smoother, just that the gsl gives a different shot feel and feedback. I orefer it but thats just me. I do plan on buying another oled though, and theyd probably get equal playing time.

It all comes down to preference, the gsl and luxe are both very ssmooth. However the luxe is smoother. The gsl will be more reliable but the luxes are not bad with regular maintenance. Just hold both and what ever feels better go with it. They are both quality guns.

The GSL is not on par in terms of smoothness. It does have quite a bit better air efficiency though and is by no means a "kicky" gun. I have not shot the GSL "extensively" though so aside from getting to just try it at a chrono I can't vouch for setup or anything like that (although there isn't much you can adjust on Geos except for the flow restrictor and dwell). It felt directly comparable to my Geo 3 I used to have. As far as the OLED goes, it shoots identical to the 2.0 but definitely has a nicer board and the power button is placed in a better position and harder to accidently hit in game.

Some have already said it, but I will add to it. IMO, when I use the gsl, smoothness was in between the luxe and the geo3. Efficiency I didn't pay attention to. For comfort, I still felt that the luxe was most comfortable, then the geo3, then the gsl/3.1.

The Luxe is smoother than the GSL without question. The GSL and Geo 3 feel VERY similar to me while shooting, so much so that they are hard to distinguish.
If you are going to purchase a GSL, why not just pick up the 3.1 and then the Bolt upgrade that PE has in the works that will give it the GSL's efficiency and save yourself $1000.

Some pros have been testing a drop-in replacement for the prop shaft and Bolt for the 3/3.1 that does everything a GSL does. I would bet that it will be in the 4 with the same GSL style backcap, but I would also bet heavily it will be released as a drop in upgrade for 3s and 3.1s since that is how it is currently designed. In fact there was a set for sale from a pro player who had access to one in the Misc equipment not too long ago.

They JUST came out with the 3.1. Prepare to wait quite a while for a whole new Geo.

Yeah but the 3.1 wasn't a full release. Didn't take much engineering to produce. It's been about 2 years since the announcement of the geo 3, and they have new tech to incorporate for the next geo already (the new core) so it probably isn't too far off.

well yeah, the GSL shoots very much the same
as a 3/3.1, but the OLED also shoots very much
like a 1/1.5 with a 2.0 core. I would have to say
that if smoothness is your primary concern, the
Luxe is the best bet, but then again you can find
a couple of even smoother guns, GTi and VCOM
immediately come to mind.
