Yeah, I have to question if someone has ever used or had a Cyborg RX if they want to call it shit, considering that it is likely the best overall package out there. Most guns are good in some areas, and crap in others, but the RX is pretty well rounded. Not the quietest, but quiet enough. Not the smoothest, but smooth enough. Not the most efficient, but more than most need. Not the best grips, but still soft enough, and wrap arounds. Etc, etc. It is the jack of all trades gun. I cant say it is the best in anything, but since it is pretty damn good in everything, I really like it. I love a smooth and quiet gun, but passed a certain point, it isnt a really big deal. You improve upon something that is already good enough.
I need at least 1500 shots off a 68/4500 from my guns. If it can do more, cool. But is it needed? No, not really. So anything over 1500 is gravy. The Cyborg will get a case. More than enough. I like a gun to be reasonably quiet. Is the Cyborg as quiet as most spools? No. But it isnt too far off from some. It is quieter than the Bob Longs, which i also consider to be quiet enough. I can easily hear team mates over the gun, and it doesnt have a sharp sound to it, so it doesnt make me second guess what someone is saying. Is it as smooth as a Victory, or most spools? No. But at the same time, I was upset with the Clone because it was SO smooth, that you couldnt tell when it was working properly or not. I had some problems with my Clone, and seriously, it shot so smooth that you couldnt tell when the FPS wasnt high enough. It permanently felt like a gun shoot below 200 FPS. I like a bit of feedback from the gun, but I respect the smoothness of guns such as the Clone, DM and Luxe. The Cyborg is smooth, but still gives me enough feedback to know that everything is alright.
The Cyborg comes with an OLED board with all the stuff you want on it, plus USB connectivity, a great case, laser eyes (in case anyone gives a shit) a macro out the front ASA, and is fully tooless for all major maintenance items other than the HPR. The enclosed bolt system is a gimmick as far as I am concerned, solving a problem which doesnt really exist, but whatever. Still nice because the pin isnt flying around up top. If they had a better trigger and barrel on it stock, I would have very little to complain about, and trust me, I do a LOT of complaining and nit picking when it comes to guns.
I had two Ego 11s. I wasnt really impressed with the performance of either. One was brand new, straight out of the box (with the noid turned down, and modes changed, obviously) and the other was well shot in, at least 20,000 shots through it. Both felt great, looked great, and had all the luxury you expect from a gun that costs that much, but shot wise, I just didnt see why I would have the Ego over something such as a Vice. The Vice is as smooth, and about as quiet, and costs a ton less, plus it is more efficient. I know why you buy an Ego 11 over a Vice, I just didnt see what the big deal on the performance was. Sure, the Ego 11 is leaps and bounds better than the previous Egos, and I like that Planet is finally heading down that road, but I dont think they are quite there. If they can improve on the Ego 13, and make it shoot better than the Ego 11, without hurting them in the areas they are already good at (see reliability) then I would likely shoot an Ego 13 over a Bob Long. The Bob Long is still likely going to be cheaper, but the performance gap is closing. However, there is still a gap.
Anyway, I am at work, and this is longer than I had planned, so I need to get moving. My miso is now cold, and that means I am about to slap a bitch.
