I think im almost ready to buy my first high end so i have a few questions,
1. Ever since i started paintball people always rave on how durable the ego is, I dont think i want a poppit so I was wandering if the geo had that Durable attribute to it)?
2. Besides PE and dye what are some good spoolies that you can see lasting longer and its very durable ( I do not want to send in my gun... I never want it to break, for some reason no matter how nice i take care of it some thing happens to it?
3. Ego 11 Vs G6R
4. How does a demon stand up to its predecessors with ergos, durability, trigger ( i really don care about shot quality.
5. Is a luxe worth the money
6. Is the geo 3 worth the extra money or get a 2.1
Please try to answer as much questions you can...
P.S. Im buying new.
1. From experience the geo is just as durable as the ego in about every way.
2. Im not really going to answer this one because I havent had my luxe long enough, and the geo 2 is the only other higher end spoolie ive owned. I will say this though geo 2 is by far the least finnicky, the first day I brought my luxe out it was 30-40 degrees and it suffered from terrible bolt stick until I changed , the dwell, FSDO (well not really a bolt stick thing), velocity, changed the manifold screw setting, and took out the feather touch screw (probably the biggest cause of the bolt stick).
3. Personally I would choose Ego 11. I hate bobs ergos and ive had bad experiences with bob long
4. Dont know ive never even seen a demon but the luxe and geo 2 are super comfy for different reasons.
5. If you can afford it the luxe is worth the money. Personally I would pay the extra $100 and get a Pooty Luxe (hes a seller on PBN who tricks them out). The only thing that irritates me about the luxe so far is the way you have to take off the grips to adjust board settings.
6. Never shot a geo 3. I know on the ego 11 changing the solenoid setting you can get entirely different shot qualities out of it, I cant imagine the geo 3 being any different. So that feature is a large plus. I also like the frame on the geo 3 much more (the same as the ego 11s). I do dislike the trigger a bit. The geo 2 uses a trigger with a spring and a magnet, the geo 3/ ego 11 uses a magnet and a lever/flange instead of a spring and it creates a mushier feel to me. A very small gripe though. Personally I hate the new geo 3 milling but thats my opinion. Its up to you if its worth the money.
