I spoke to Jack Wood and he confirmed, "there is no LV2."

Now, he's not one to lie, so just what are we seeing here?

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.
A lot of the guys on my team shoot luxes or CSs. Seem like I have less problem with brittle paint than they do. Not that they have many problems but still...

Jack can be tricky.. so "No LV2" could mean a complete redesign without the lever.
Or they're just trolling.

It's the baggers. (Sandbaggers), they troll with the best of the business.

It's entirely possible that's a normal LVR just taped up to mess with people. Or it's a new etek.

Fish had the new CS* at CPPS for a few events last season. I'd bet on a CS3 before an LV2 being released.

If it's not a LV2 it's most likely a new LV "PRO edition" or Etek 6

Some of you guys need to put your thinking caps on.

Think about *why* the LV1.5 production was stopped.

There's a broad gap between a revised LV1.x and a completely new marker, the LV2.

Think it could have actually been the second gun pictured here?

Cheeky fellow he is, I wouldn't be surprised if it's the next-gen poppet/stacked tube gun, but won't be called the LV-whatever.

Hmmmm....maybe (big maybe) they are skipping the 2 and jumping straight to the 3 (considering the LVR as the "2")?

So -- a LV3 and a CS3 -- matching platform numbers for consistency.

I suppose I'll make my guess. I'm going to say that we have a lever-valved Etek on the way. But, I do hope it's actually a new Ego with some cool new design feature...though I don't know what could be cooler than a lever-actuated poppet.

If I were Jack, and had everybody and their dog asking about an LV2, I would just tape up an LV1.5 just to troll.

It's obviously an LV2.5. Obviously.

👍
He’s said it a few times. About a week before this was posted on pbn a bunch of photoshops appeared on mcb and rumors started circling, jack came on and stated unequivocally that same thing, “there is no lv2, no design for an lv2, and no plans for any”.
So to clarify, that is not an lv2, that is not a cs3, you are being trolled. Enjoy the kool aid

Agreed that these aren't a LV2 or a CS3. However, I don't think we're being trolled either. Something new this way comes. The game is afoot!

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.
