This is grossly inaccurate. There is a lot more going on than CS2 grips on a CS1 here. The grip angle is very different giving the user a more comfortable main grip. To me it was mind lowing just how much better the Geo 4 feels in the hands than a CS1.x with CS2 rubber. You really need to hold one and shoot it to understand.

Is the solenoid mounted to the body, or in the frame?
Yep, and I see that has been answered.

She will shoot as smooth as any CS1.x I own or have owned (given she has the same IV core and extra volume over the Geo 3.5. like the Cs1.x) She is quiet, smooth supper comfortable to hold and natural to point and shoot. What is not to like? Weight distro is a part of it, but the extra volume and lower operating pressure that comes with it also help a lot.

Going by looks, I'd say it's within a matter of grams of a CS2 and CSR.

Looks great. People are talking smack about all of the releases but they look great and it is what people have been asking for.

So I am a long time eclipse fanboi who missed a bunch of years. I LOVE that they made the 1.6 and will buy at least one. This I am less sure of. If I also wanted to have a PE spool in my bag, it seems Jack is saying I should still get the CS2 "The CS2 is still our flagship." What is the sales pitch for this vs a CS2? And if it's just "it's cheaper," then what is the sales pitch for the over the 170R (my current marker)?

The CS1 and Geo 4 use the exact same bolt system and the internal body diameters are also identical.

It Should be interesting now that they have three legit options lv1.6, cs2 pro, and Geo 4

Hell yes. Hopefully it shoots better than the CS2 -- I've always found those things a lot less smooth and clunkier than a Geo 3.5 Can't wait to give it a try!

Well im sure its tough coming out with so many heavy hitters at PE. The CS2 is their "flagship" marker right now but give it a few months and the geo 4 will take over. The IV Core is a lot of players favorite PE engine, the fact they put it in their CS2 body makes this even more sexual.

Ergos of the CS2 and swooshy butter of the IV? that should sell it for you enough. The IV core breaks in the gamma does not

Would love to see pros using a variety of these offerings instead of cs2 pros across the line.

. They still operate at different pressures, CS being lower, according to their spec sheets.

Does this have the frame tab into body like the cs2. I like the idea of that level of robustness. And does it have the light pipes?

Interesting, conflicting information...

It does say that the Operating Pressure is 135 psi, but thatís from Anus Gear who is notoriously wrong a lot.

Can anyone actually confirm the Operating Pressure?


Also the Bolt is new with the Soft Face inside the tip like the CS2 Bolt.


If this has the same Operating Pressure as the Geos then it should be called a Geo.

If itís lower like the CS1 series then Iím not sure why P.E. didnt just call it a CS1.6?

It has same operating pressure as CS1 It's possible that's a typo in our spec sheets.

CS is reserved for our flagship markers.

It’s arguably the same as the CS2 just with the IV Core instead of the Gamma Pro Core.

It’s not like one Bolt System is significantly better than the other, they are just different.

I don’t see why a company can’t have more than one “Flagship” Marker?

Just my thoughts...

Keep up the great work Jack Wood!

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.
