Looks like a Vanquish with an axe bolt system. $600-700 price range.

Now that, would be amazing.

Can't wait until this explodes into more speculation like the 3.5 and everyone looks like this:

vanquish almost reminds me of the vapor, i was on an all in team this season and the handful of guys who had a vanquish had problems at some point... board went bad, solenoid went bad, bolt came from factory with incorrect orings, leaked from bolt or in the asa...etc

I wouldn't call it like a vapor personally. I will say that to me is why I will always keep a luxe long term over a vanquish. I have owned 10-12 luxes since 2008 and never had one go down during the game. Replaced orings on it as needed and lubed it after every other play. Cleaned other peoples and worked on theirs never had issues.

Now I have owned 4 vanquishes I believe it maybe 5( 2 normal 3 1.5) and I had some form of problem with 3 of the 5. They aren't as reliable but the 1.5 mod has been a godsend to empire, should have never released a gun with those issues but still it's a great gun.

I think empire cashed in purely due to a hole in the market. People were kinda tired of luxes(you won't find a bigger luxe fan but they came out in 08), empire fans were tired of the axe, and some people don't buy dye so it was the perfect storm I think

my biggest gripe with the Vanquish was the price for the overall finish you were paying for. the inserts looked like a 3 year old honed and polished them. the V1 bolts always ripped the tip due to poor work on the feed neck to body, the inside looked muggy compared to a LUXE. it is a LUXE want to be with the build quality of a Chinese marker. for 1500$ im buying the real deal rather than the clone.

I have vanquish #464 and never had a problem with the original parts or the 1.5 upgrade. Meanwhile I watched three teammates with luxes spend a week+ trying to diagnose mystery leaks, etc.

that is unfortunate. at my field it has been the complete opposite. vanquish after vanquish going down lol. i think it does have some cool features but not enough to make me want one over my luxes

Honestly I don't see it as a new Vanquish release with the 1.5 just coming out this year. It does not fit the typical KEE product release pattern, but then again we won't know until an announcement is made or until Cup rolls around.

Yeah but I feel that may be more likely than a new Vanquish altogether as the marker has just been updated and started seeing more people buying it. It'll be the fourth marker in the empire stack probably between the Vanquish and the Axe.

Damian's gun has a rounded back, not "the swoop cut". I've noticed it the start of the last 2 points.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
