Not necessarily... There is a CSR PRO and a CS2 PRO so it could most definitely be a LVR PRO.

CS2, Etha 2, 170r all have smaller Regulators in their Trigger Frames.

The Smart Parts 09 Impulse has both HPR and LPR in it’s Trigger Frame.

None of those Marker’s Trigger Frames are fat or thick. I’d even say the Etha 2’s and 170r’s is pretty thin.

It’s definitely possible, we’ll just have to wait an see how Jack Wood did it...

The only gun that it could be that it's tape would be an LVR. Only one that lines up with the body shape.

This guy owns a G6R that never works, that matches his mask, tank, and hopper.

Wow.... I just can't imagine hating on PE or their products. They are pretty much the industry standard for quality and customer service and they have raised the bar on low to mid end markers with the emek and etha 2

Buddy, to put this in very simple terms. The CS1 line resulted in the CS1.5 and finally the CSR and then the PRO variant for teams etc... Then planet eclipse released an new marker from the CS line titled the CS2, with many different improved features. After a season, they released a differently cut CS2 called the CS2 Pro, not sure if anything internally besides the barrel was changed.

The LV line went from LV1 to 1.1 to 1.5 to LVR as the latest LV line. Considering the LVR has been out for 4 years, it would be more likely that they would release a LV2 to have both of their high end marker lines be on their second full release of each marker. A PRO variant of a four-year-old marker would be much less plausible because it would require the rework of almost the entire marker to bring it up to CS2-like caliber improvments / operations.

I love egos, but I prefer the older models shot and sound signature over the LV's. Older egos felt more responsive and fine tuned. Although the LVs shoot nice and smooth, they still feel like they are broken low on air or just not 100% working correctly....just something I couldn't get used to ...

When I first got my LV1, I couldn't believe how smooth it was. People who test fired it almost always thought it was chronographed too low or out of air. However, once you got used to that, it just made it more awesome.

Can't wait to see what this actually is!

I owned an LV1 and played with a teammates lv1.5? Coming from using Egos I had high hopes but was actually pretty disappointed. Felt like my 2k5'd Intimidator shot better. Plus, my two biggest gripes with the gun were the AT-Pipe and number 1 was how if you got shot in the trigger you had to take apart literally the entire gun to clean it out.

I would only be psyched for an lv2 if they made it completely hose-less/pipe-less and made the trigger the same as the cs2 where you can easily remove and clean it.

I've never owned an LV1 because I prefer single tube marker ergonomics, but I've had the same reaction to every LV1 I've shot. Planet Eclipse spools have become so reliable and efficient that I don't quite recognize the need for Egos/LVs anymore, but you can't knock how the LV shoots.

My personal CS guns have been very gentle on paint. However, my LVR feels like it can shoot glass paintballs without breaking a ball. It is the best gun I have ever owned when it comes to shooting super brittle paintballs that wouldn't even come out of any other gun.

Now I admit, it doesn't get used much anymore since I got my CS2. However, it sits waiting for the next time I get a case of paint that was made way too brittle.

Best markers I've ever owned were my 3 LV1s and of course right after I sell my Dynasty LV1 the prices start to rise. I let that thing go for too cheap.

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.
