Hey guys,
Emailed empire about sending my Syx in, here's the reply I got. No judgements, I love my Syx and I think it's awesome Empire is doing the upgrade for the cost of shipping.

"Hi **** , Unfortunately due to the high demand for this upgrade, there may be a delay of up to 3 months on certain parts that become out of stock.

We can complete what is currently available and flash your board in the meantime. And if there is a remaining part needed for the upgrade, we can send it out no charge when it becomes available. (Or you are welcome to send in your marker again for the final upgrade and installation or wait until all parts are available; mid-April)

By sending in your marker now, you understand that there is a potential wait for any currently unavailable parts.



When you do decide to send it in, use the address below. Include a note requesting the 1.5 upgrade along with your name, address and phone number"

Not a huge deal for me up in Boston, weather is too cold to play til April anyway. It is interesting that they will do what they can and ship you the remainder of the parts at a later date as well.

Just an FYI

That's just being transparent. At this point we have parts, if they run out there will be delays. The faster you get it your marker in, the quicker the turn around.

Totally. Not sour about it at all, I get it. I think it's awesome that Empire is doing this, love my Syx and pick up my Axe 2.0 as much as any of my other markers, always been a big fan of the platform.

I shot the Empire SYX 1.5 side by side with an older SYX and the 1.5 was distinctly quieter and smoother. We (the owner of the stock SYX and I) were both genuinely surprised. I'd already told him not to expect a noticeable difference shooting 50 balls and to send his gun in for the upgrade even though his is working just fine. I couldn't believe there was a side to side difference we both could detect.

So is this Empire's new high-end flagship marker? I know they scrapped their "Squish line, yet they are allowing AC Dallas to shoot the GT, but making Diesel shoot the SYX 1.5. Is there another "highest-end" marker on the way from Empire to support their pro teams and ensure they are competing with the best quality equipment. Or is the SYX 1.5 their best speedball marker for the season and sponsorships? Some clarity from empire / GI would be great

Got mine back from Empire in less than 6 days, with everything except the ASA lever done. A note in the box said that would be shipped to me when available. I was able to take it out and shoot it...feels great. Soft, quiet, fast, with no breaks in the 1,000 or so 4 Star balls I put through it. More than pleased with the results and the turnaround.

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.
