Hopefully another Mid range tourny marker like the Axe.

KEE would be stupid to create direct competition for the Axe. One would outsell the other and they would've wasted tons of time and money.

Not really. Why does PE have the Geo and Ego then? Why does Macdev have the Clone and Cyborg? Why did Dye have the DM and NT? Two products in the same price bracket from the same company is not an issue, since even if it splits off sales from one, they go to the other. Sometimes a company will make more money with two equivalent products than one high and one low.

It always annoys me when I see people bring up "but pro teams use it." Pro teams will use anything that works like they need it to. FFS, give Heat eXTCys and they'll do the same as Luxes; doesn't make the eXTCys any more "worth it" just cause a pro team used it.


LOL, look at Smart Parts and their Smart Corps team that played the SPPL. It was basically the Pro All Americans. At the first SPPL Finals that they played, they all played with SP1's, the Ion Mil-Sim with rails and no eyes. They won the event, not because they were playing "Pro" equipment, but because they could play.

Wait... How is a feedneck ugly or pretty? It's just a damn feedneck... It's a hole in the top of the gun where the paintballs fall in.

*sigh* people are going to continue to be ridiculous anyway aren't they?

I heard it was a Ego6r with a pooty modded luxe core. It also has a thing that only allows the owner of the gun to use it.

It also has a hybrid spoolie machine that deposits 2 balls into the chamber and shoots 1 or 2 at a time, depending on users preference.

I heard this from a friend who has a son who's neice is the hooker that an Infamous player had two years ago.

I can confirm this. I know the owner.
but it's not 2 balls into the breach, it's the staggering total of 5.

Empire has really stuck to the inline poppets so this may be their tournament quality marker. (an axe plus). About what someone said about this looking ugly in the pictures- this is probably their prototype so they most likely didn't take much time working on the milling, coloring and other cosmetic features of their prototype.

Doubt it, the Impulse works great, so why would they be doing so much testing on it? I also doubt they would do a bunch of big changes to the impulse, because why fix a gun that shoots amazing already?

Cats out of the bag. This thing is getting leaked everywhere... KEE may want to just show a teaser of it.

Looks like Vicious and Infamous maybe shooting this new "marker" at Dallas since Paintball Extravaganza will be in later February, and teams will get to actually give a full field test.
