and just as, if not more efficient than most poppets these days.

OK most everything is opinion - but not everything. That spools are more efficient - shins. I mean happy you like spools - good for you - but no - IMO that is a bridge too far. Now you did say most poppets - so I'll add "comparably priced poppets Posted Image


You can take the back off a Luxe and swab the whole thing out in seconds is ... OK, kind of stretching the limits of what players would do, yet within the "limits of opinion". The other side of that is you can measure the age of the universe in seconds too - so pretty arbitrary.
Anyway, I do hear you in that many that real ballers - more of those that post on these sites - they prefer the Independence, the more fully milled guns. A few hundred dollars on a gun isn't their deciding factor - keep that in mind as I move forward.

Remember kids: always be mindful of who is providing you information. Especially research. Last I checked, scientific design is based upon peer reviewed research and factual design. We can't just let anyone make self made claims, do the research themselves, and present it as true - that just wouldn't be very ethically sound. ;)

Oops I forgot, if you don't just blindly accept unsubstantiated claims, you must be partisan.

will alien be at extravaganza this year?

No - we went last year, and then skipped a year and went the year before that.
No new gun this year so don't see the need

, if you don't just blindly accept unsubstantiated claims, you must be partisan.

Perhaps blindly accepting and blindly rejecting are equally wrong.


The statement was made - and not by me - that that Mods views were known, seems offense was taken at that as being partisan.
How about the offensiveness of impugning ethics?

that just wouldn't be very ethically sound.

Might not it seem less partisan, less offensive, to say "financially sound", or "intellectually sound" better yet - why not just drop the whole thing and say "Wouldn't it be smarter"
Plus claims are not "unsubstantiated" been around for awhile now - and players can look at the vids and accept or reject as they see fit.
Understanding that I am hyper sensitive as to this point - IMO that some want to say that "because I am making the claim, that proves that the claim is false", that is just dumb, wrong ignorant, stupid...Perhaps blindly accepting and blindly rejecting are equally wrong. Posted Image

Jack I just wanted to let you know, because it bugs me whenever I'm on your site. When your talking about PR1ME Winning 2nd place at world cup its spelled congraTulations, not congraDulations. Not mocking you it just REALLY bothers me

Just wondering. Is the power button ever an issue with the Invasions? Looking at the lasered gun picture it kinda looks like it bulges past the frame a tiny bit. I know in the past when I had markers with buttons similar to that I'd sometimes hit the power button on or off accidentally. Not that is's a huge deal in the first place, that's just something that bugs me sometimes.

At $499 it's a great deal. thumbs up to Alien.

The rubber does stick out - a little - but you have to push it in - a lot. Bit of a hassle how far in and how long you have to hold it, longer with Virtue board, but you won't 'accidentally' turn the gun, or the eyes, off.
Much better to hold it in a bit too long than switching when you don't want it too

The power button's pretty stiff. There's no chance of you turning it off in game.

I ALMOST let that stop me from getting one but im glad i did, although there's no on/off the port on the bottom where it de-gases from is big and it turns loose with minimal effort (you don't even have to do the "one shot" thing)

I was super impressed at how easy it was to unscrew the tank from the asa. It is seriously no big deal at all

Old thread I know but I have an 08 Indy like kevin in the post above. And it seems to shoot great only problem is it has a very faint leak from the hose, can't hear it when playing only if you are indoors and have pulled the bolt out. Just wanted to know if i let it be am I loosing any performance out of the gun,(consistency, recharge rate, Etc)? I'm sure changing the hose would fix it but if it's not really affecting anything I don't think I'll bother.
