Hey John, did the 1.6 shoot any different to the 1.5 in your opinion? (assuming you have shot the 1.5)

I've never shot a 1.5 specifically but I have shot my LVr extensively.

Truth is, I haven't shot the LV nearly as much as I've shot my CS2 in the last year. Returning to the LV platform was incredible. I love how smooth it is. I couldn't believe how well it shot paint that I almost considered unshootable.

I too shot my Geo/CS platform markers way more than my LV. But I gave the LV some love in the colder months and it handled paint that just wasn't going to make it out of the barrel of any other marker.

Very fun markers to shoot and I am glad that PE was able to offer the platform again.

It's just speculation, but if I had to guess it would be to make up for the existence of of the AT pipe. It doesn't look quite as smooth in the grip frame area so they decided to give the barrel a boost. Just a guess.

EDIT: Just noticed the LV 1.6 is $100 more than the GEO 4, so yeah that's probably a more reasonable guess.

My problem is I want both new markers, the Ego and the Geo.

But as far as being in line in a preorder...

There are a lot of small local stores that placed orders but don't know what PE will ship so they don't put them on their websites till they actually get them.

IE they may order 10 or 15 and receive 5.

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.
