No I mean, in the past when they have tested new designs/platforms they always seem to make frankenstein guns with existing parts of the current platform instead of milling new bodies and such.

Like if they are just testing a new trigger frame, they just retrofit it to an existing body.

That would be pretty awesome... Some of us haven't touched their LV 1.6 since the 'vid hit.

This is great , if it's a LV2. Best shooting poppet ever made. I have loved all my LVs. Smooth smooth smooth.

I very much doubt that'd ever happen, would be far too complex to implement compared to the gamma platform. LV is already kinda niche, that'd be ultra niche.

This. Just go buy a Spyder lol

Edit: The Front Grip looks like a CS1/Geo 4 front grip to me. Would be cool if it was and then it would probably have 2 AA batteries in there...

I’m just saying that Jack has an opportunity to save himself some grief and get ahead of another 8 years of b*tching and moaning for a mech option. 😁

If they can shoot people to Mars, adding a mech frame to a poppet wouldn't be hard.

I think the point is more that it would take quite a lot of RD and $$$ to bring a mech LV to fruition and the demand isn't really there. The amount of people wanting a mech LV is very small.

$1400 for a LV2 with both the mech frame and electro frame. I bet you it will sell like hotcakes.

I bought the Lv1.6 knowing that it was going towards a future LV2. Didn't know it would be this quick. Part of me hopes that AT-pipeless design could be an add-on kit to my current LV, but I doubt that it will happen. All I know is I hope to be the first in line when this puppy comes out!

They said no more YEARLY egos in 2011. Then we got nothing for 2 years until the first LV1 came out. 2 years is hardly "suddenly".

And do you remember people shaking in their pants about not having egos anymore in 2011, then after that, no ego...then people really started pissing their pants, and then suddenly, bam. LV1

Honestly no I don't remember any sort of panic about not having egos. The stock of 2011 Egos hadn't even run out by any means by the time the LV1 was announced in 2013. Hell I think most retailers had new 2011 egos for at least 3-4 years.

Same when the GEO platform took over around the Geo 2ish? I didn't hear anyone complain. It's only been in the past couple years that people have been begging for poppets as spools have all become so generic now. But Idk all anecdotal experience.

I hate this sentiment of "people begging for poppets"

Apparently that is false as the last 2-3 poppet releases across the market have been met with lukewarm sales and reception. If this was the case, BL/F1 would have remained relevant and higher up the totem pole from 2011-2019

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.
