Why proto?

For all of you proto owners here on the nation... Why did you decide to go proto instead of getting a used DM, or going with any other Midend spool marker?

I've owned a few different Protos
PM7-One of the nicest guns I've owned.Sold it and got a 07 PMR.Big mistake

07 PMR-Great shooter once I upgraded the bolt to a Techt and fixed the leaking noid gasket.Added a Virtue and DM spring detente also.It my nephews loaner now

2011 PMR-Pales in comparison to my Ions and 07 PMR.Issues with getting the velocity over 260.Converted one this past week to mech using an old busted Ion noid minus the board.Also added a QEV.Velocity seems higher but I'll have to crono check it.More modifiable than most PMRs since it uses hoses,banjos and a pancake noid similar to the Vibe\Extacy
Overall they're kind of meh.Prefer Ion platforms myself

I use a Pm8 because i bought it as a backup for the Dm10 (used the same bolt system) i had at the time.

Pm8 was a better shooter so I sold the dm10

Performance of DMs without the high price tag... PM8s are the best buy as they use DM9-11 internals with a smaller/shorter body since the LPR is relocated.

The only weakness is the need to remove the grip frame to service the LPR which can be problematic with ribbon eyes.
