My new Insight NG

Well it took me a long time to let go of my old markers and finally sell them, but I'm glad I did. Last week while at my local pro shop I saw this amazing looking Insight on the wall and had to have it. After putting half a case through it I'm very impressed, it is hands down the quietest and smoothest marker I have owned. I can't wait to take it out this upcoming weekend for my birthday!











Matching E-Flex


SHOOTING VIDEO!


I'm wanting to get either a black and red or white and red Spire for it and a Ninja SL tank! Other than that it will probably stay the same besides some more barrel backs and maybe a Violent Duece trigger.

Looks good! I love gloss and dust combos. Get a violent deuce trigger for sure! I won't shoot a BL gun without one, haha.

Thanks a lot! I agree the gloss and dust combo looks so nice in person. The milling is absolutely amazing and the gloss red really brings it out! I'm not use to the trigger really, so I think I will end up buying a white Violent Duece trigger for it soon. It was exactly what I was looking for in a marker, a spool that shoots efficiently while still being pretty quiet and smooth. Granted, yes there are quieter and smoother spools out there, but I wouldn't trade my Insight for them. Also I love the way it feels in my hands, it's the perfect length.

Beautiful gun! that color combo looks awesome, especially the gloss red. Shows off the milling nicely.

so no more dark ego 6?

Looks nice, haven't tried one yet. Might have to see if they have one in the local store. Congratulations on your purchase!

Thank you! I definitely agree with you and it looks even better in person! Yes I sold my Dark Ego and Darq Marq to get this, but my cousin now owns the Dark Ego.

Definitely check one out, it feels nice in the hands, is balanced well and is a nice shooting marker. Thanks I am very happy with it.

I think I would have to agree with you on that one, I was originally looking at getting a Ripper Vic used, but I saw this new at my pro shop on the wall and couldn't leave without it.

Wow! No more darq or dark ego! Is that crazy, or kind of refreshing? Congrats on the insight! Hope you enjoy it! Finally had the chance to shoot one last month....Very nice and smooth with a bit of a poppit feedback...but quiet...kind of reminded me of a geo 2 but smoother....and wicked small!

Congrats man!

P.S. Happy birthday if I forget to mention it this weekend! Have fun!

Ya, belated Happy Birthday Smoke! I'll pick up a Insight up after I fool around with the GI Sportz Victus I bought. Want to play some field time with it. So far I like it.

bummer, loved your Dark Ego. The Dark Ego 6 was definitely the sexiest Ego they've made in my opinion. I remember when they first came out, used to drool all over them especially the dust red / polished black combo like yours. But at least you know who you sold it to in case you ever want it back. Hope you enjoy the insight

I can't say for sure since I have not shot a Geo3. From what I've seen though I think they are similar for smoothness, have different sound signatures although they are probably close for quietness, but the Insight owns the efficiency department for factory spools.

Yeah it was kind of crazy not having my babies anymore, but my Dark Ego is with my cousin. It is nice to own a new marker again though, it's been like 9 years lol. I really like my Insight though. Thanks I should be ballin for my birthday on Saturday.

Haha it's on Saturday. If you have a Victus I wouldn't really worry about picking up an Insight, same thing just with different milling. Yeah I'm impressed with my Insight so far and will be taking it to the field for the first time for my birthday.

Yeah I always said I would never sell it.. At least my cousin has it so I can still see it and use it if I want. Thanks I think it looks pretty amazing and it shoots very nicely too, I say go for it!

Hands down the sexiest Ego made, I was right there with you on drooling over them. I remember seeing it in a PB mag and I knew I had to have it. I was disheartened when I went online and saw it cost $1795.. I then bought it about 2 years later for less than a third of the price lol.

Good looking gun. Follow the tuning guide Tim posted in the Marq forum and you will love it. I'd suggest 4c eyes. I have them on my ripper and it never breaks any paint. My insight does every once in a while if I shoot a hopper totally empty. I'll get 4c eyes for it eventually as we'll.

Thanks and the only tuning guide I saw was for the Victory. I will look in to the 4C eyes, but I haven't had any breaks out of the 1/2 a case I've put through it in the backyard.

Also I posted up a shooting video of it on uncapped full auto with my Pulse RDR loader.

New pics added with my new Ninja SL 68/45 tank! It is amazingly light! It is the perfect length for me and balances out my set up with my Pulse RDR loader.

New pictures added with my .688 and .679 backs. Looking at adding another BL marker before too long, might pick up a G6.
