I have quite a few spools right now, and I want to pick up a poppet for my gearbag: slightly better efficiency and a little more noise are sometimes exactly what I'm looking for when I play.
I've already chosen the Ego platform because I love the company that's behind them; and I'm not really thrilled with the handful of other companies that make poppets at the moment.

Anyway, as it is right now, I have nowhere near the amount of money I'd need to be able to afford the LV1; so I'd have to sell some stuff, and even then, I'd have to save up the cash for awhile. (College is taking most of my cash right now.)


My big question is: is it worth the extra money to wait and get the LV1, when I can trade or sell one (or possibly two) for a slightly older Ego that's in great shape? I know there's a decent difference in performance; but would I be happier with the LV1 in the long run?


(And yes, I realize that the LV1 has not been widely released yet.)

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

Better get an Etek if you want that Posted Image




I say get the LV1 just so you can have it first at your field.

Wait for some reviews of the LV1, if it lives up to the hype it'll be pretty damn good.

Also keep in my mind that there's the Impulse and new Cyborg coming out and the G6R still smokes any Ego.

That's the thing: I would have to wait several months to be able to afford it.

Maybe I'm old fashioned, or just strange, but I despise BLAST markers of any sort with a passion.
The New impulse looks cool; but if I wanted an Imp, I'd just get an 09 Impulse: at least those are macroless.

Im sure the lv1 will shoot great but with how low the price on the 11 has gotten it certainly seems like it would be worth picking one up if you didnt want to wait

I shot Ryan Lovato's Ego LV1, and I liked it better than the older egos. That rubber makes it feel pretty sturdy, and it shot quieter than the other egos.

From everyone I have talked to from PBE, the LV1 seems to be living up to the hype real well. People told me that it might look cheesy but it is actually very robust feeling, it's on the long side which gives you more control but if you don't like that then get an older Ego. Also, the shot quality is great (from what I have been told) and the trigger feels great.

Im sure the LV1 is amazing because Eclipse made it. But personaly I hate the look of the LV1.
Plus the ego 11 is about $900 and some change at ANS right now. So id much rather get the geo 11 then the LV1 just on price. but thats just opinion
#63 on the roster #1 in your heart!!

So everything Eclipse makes is amazing? What about the Etek?
And looks shouldn't be at all what matters, even on a high end gun. Have you seen it in person and held it? It looks damn sexy and the grips make it damn comfortable to hold.

Although no marker ever lives up to the hype (nothing lives up to the hype) I even though I hate eclipse, have got to say it's looking pretty impressive. I would say wait for it because ego's haven't changed much every year with the exception of the 11 which had changes that didn't do much

I'm pretty sure the urge to buy an older Ego is just my inner gun whore trying to satisfy itself.
I'll try to resist until I can afford the LV1....
