why do you guys hate it soo much? to me its a level of progression in paintball. who cares if you think it looks bad. a lot of people think it looks good including me. it matters about how it feels, shoots and reliability and this gun improved a lot of things that people didnt like about previous egos. stop hating. its gonna be a really good gun. it is pricey but to me you get what you get topped off with the reliability of planet eclipse guns.

The only thing I don't like is the compromise between macro and true macroless.

I kind of neutral towards the whole issue. I will most likely never own one, hold one, or maybe not even see one in person.

people dont like huge, drastic changes. in 6 months everyone will love it. everyone hated the g6r. now they love it. everyone hated the demon, now they love it.
There are 2 kinds of people in this world. Those who think they can and those who think they can't. both of them are right.

this.
When I first saw the lv1, it looked horrendous, but the more I look at it, the more I can get past the looks.
it still sucks though, it doesn't have a pump kit.

I don't understand the outrage. People act like it's some horrible, deformed abomination when in reality it looks like the other seven(INB4 "Well counting X there are actually Y versions") versions of the ego with a rubber grip on the front. The sheer amount of hate over an inch and a half tube going from the trigger frame to the reg is just hilariously ridiculous to me. Especially when you can just put a macroline on it anyway. I understand not liking it but I think people are pouring it on just a wee bit thick.

Shit look at the axe people everywhere were screaming from the roof tops how bad it looked. Now look at it...

I think the LV1 is an awesome innovation to the Ego line of markers.

This. I imagine the conversation was something to the effect of:

The marker will be without a doubt one of the best shooting poppet markers on the market and probably feels amazing in the hands. The point being that PE went with function over form. It's ugly as all sin, it just is, but I'm willing to look past it for the fact that it will shoot excellent.

I saw a pic of it with an actual macroline and didn't mind it too much. That being said, I'm not going to buy one regardless.

I agree. It seems a bit half assed, in that they didn't want to redo the reg to have air come in and out the top, and just moved the air transfer tube up a bit. You get the downside of having air seals between the asa and frame, and not upside since there is still an external air transfer tube of some sort. All down, no real up in that regard. It very well may feel and shoot great, but I'm not sure if I can ever get past that.

Well As I said before, this marker looks like it fell outta the ugly tree and hit every branch. Another issue I find with this marker is that, Ego 11's are now 995$ and this is coming at 1395$ , It would be better picking up an Ego 11 which looks way nicer and has the same quality as an LV1. The price difference could allow you to buy the upgrades ( cure5 , zick3 ) to make it match the Lv1 and still have it cost less.

Nope. The Zick 3 is only beneficial in the LV1 due to the cam lever between the rammer and valve, and the valve has been completely redesigned from the ground up for optimum flow with a much larger dump chamber in front of the valve. But I'm sure you could run an Ego 11 with an LPR of 70 and an HPR of 110...

watch the video, check out the technology in this gun-



That's some next level shit right there, how can you hate on it simply on the "looks"? If they released a retro version, with macroline coming out of the ASA and into the reg like the Ego 11, would everyone shut the fuck up and quit crying?

This is evolution, this is "moving on" to better stuff

I love the way the gun feels, feels awesome

not a fan. yea its looks are blah but the rammer/valve design just looks like a nightmare to work on. thumbs up for PE for a new design but you shouldnt need 3 moving parts to open a valve. i think its going to be a headache down the road. something similar to the ego07 issues that happened 6months to a year after it came out.

Or if you guys REALLY HATE the macroline-less

The pipe can be removed. You can use a standard ASA and macroline if you wish.

LOL like I said, try it out, hold it in your hands

gun feels awesome, haven't shot a poppet in several years because of the LPR knob coming out from under the barrel. I wouldn't think twice about using this one, the ergonomics are awesome

First after Futurama meme!

And for me,looks are a huge decicing factor when i am buying a gun,especially when I am going to be forking over $1400 for it.If I'm spending that kind of money,I would(personally)rather get a G6R or even an EGO11 and save myself some money.

i just dont like that much rubber on my guns... i loves my ego11... super comfortable to hold and shoot... i can get over the way this looks if it shoot as amazing as people say... and will fully support the gun... but, i am just not a fan of how that giant rubber block looks on the reg... other then that, i am impressed... i would have to get one in my hands and strip it down to really see how it all worked, but that lever cam valve looks interesting...

call me old school or whatever... but so far the most comfortable gun in my hands is a mini cocker with e2 grip... most of the guns that come out today seem too thin and toy like in my hands... so maybe the thicker rubber grip up front will improve the feel for me... still wish they have thicker grip frames though... the J4 gun is supposed to have a grip frame thats 3/4's inch thick, that sounds comfy to me

Well I'll be the only truely honest guy here when I say:
Looks mean so much to me, as with the function.
Its like with girls, the looks get you hooked, but the quality keeps you there.

That being said, I got to hold and shoot one from the Disruptive Paintball owner, who got a hold of one, and it shoots much nicer than the other egos, and in black it looks damn sexy.
