For the money the Vapor isn't work it.. The marker itself looks nice, but the parts kit and everything else that comes with it is whack. From what I understand the Geo 3 is probably one of the most efficient spoolies out there atm, but the Luxe is super smooth.

Geo 3 Your Welcome

Any resones?


Played with one for an entire day, light as air smooth as silk fast as hell and easy to take care off. Eclipse has a winner.

Absolutely fell in love.

I concur with bigx...the geo 3 is sweet for a spool. Its super smooth, light, efficient, and overall awesome but compared to the luxe, its close. (I'd go with the geo 3 or luxe) The luxe has dat luxe ergos and shot but in the end just shoot both for a game if you can and then you like more, follow your gut :tup:

Why not?

i hated on the geo 2.1 in the past just because in terms of shot quality and efficiency it was lacking compared to most if not all other high end spools, but now with the geo 3 shooting like a high end spool should and still having that amazing reliability i can honestly say it is one of the best guns you could get IMO

The LUXE is the grandmaster of all spoolies. perfect ergonomics, amazing shot quality, and years of proof that it works and works well. I've shot the Geo 3, it's a good spool valve, a lot better than the 2.1, especially with the new more comfortable grip frame. However, it doesn't shoot or feel like a LUXE. The Vapor is a poor copycat of the LUXE, people who swear by the vapor are just pissed the purchased one so they have to justify it to themselves somehow. I challenge you to shoot a LUXE then ANY other marker out there, you will be sold.

i loved my luxe. best shooting gun i've ever owned and easily my favorite of the 40+ guns i've had. regardless of that, theres 1 reason why im shooting a DM right now and not a luxe.

luxes, while awesome shooters, just aren't as bomb proof as DM's. they aren't hard to work on by any means, but they can be finicky with o-ring fitment and you really need to spend a little time getting that right so you can avoid FSDO or bolt stick.
a DM on the other hand just works and works, all while being a great shooter in its own right. i value the hell out of a gun that i can use and abuse, and thats why DM's always find their way back into my gear bag.
