People arent buying markers to watch the value get massacred, and then hope it slightly recovers 7 years after release.

Thats always been the Macdev problem, they have a consistent track record of releasing guns that have issues quickly happen with no real solution on their end that is fair to the buyer, or they release underwhelming markers in comparison to the market around them.

The last true great marker they had was the Droid to me. Few minor issues but they were on top of it. The markers of the last 10 years from them have been underwhelming or overpriced in relation to their market value with their competitors.

I just sold one for $600, which is up considerably from what they were going for pre-Covid.

Regardless, I'm as critical as anyone regarding MacDev's past mistakes, but I also value the ability to view things from different perspectives to help understand the big picture. From a release-success (no revisions aside from software post-release) and maintenance claim perspective, the Prime and XTS have been their most successful markers ever, and that's straight from Bourke. I happen to like the XTS quite a bit. Hopefully they can inject some carryover concepts into the next Cyborg, as I think the market is ready for a new poppet.

It’s like tweaker said though, the rest of the market has also gone up. Half of paintball just got checks and put their money toward guns they didn’t need lol.

Out of this whole thread, I came here wanting information on the new Prime XTS, in the end just pass on the MacDev and be sad Dangerous Power might not come back.

That one looks gloss, is that an option? The websiteís preorder options look like a dust finish.

I love macdev and have owned several but this marker looks very underwhelming to me. Not sure what to go with in the ~$1k price range at this point.........

I've never been able to verify the "stolen" rumor, but I recall it being discussed years ago in the Droid/Crome days, and the irony of the Infinity Drive wasn't lost on me when it initially released. With that said, the Crome valve nose design is a big reason for how it sounds, and this doesn't have that. They actually ditched the nose, which is a surprising move.

Crome valve seal size (which it looks like this may have moved to a thicker 2mm valve seal) + Crome valve/nose design + MacDev bumper + MacDev shutoff would be a huge win. Combining those two designs would be very popular, methinks.

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.
