and i want to know some of your opinions on the marker. Is it going to be an improvemnt on the old 09 Smart Parts impulse? or is it going to be just another JT peice of junk? (NOTE: i have no intention of buying this marker so dont try and "sell" it to me please)
I think its going to be just another JT crap gun. JT hasnt made a quality marker since ive been in the sport (early 2008). They have always been cheap spyder clone stack tubed blowbacks. So JT hasnt really made me think otherwise. Now i dont really like the idea of no macroline on guns from a tech standpoint. I like having the macroline so its easier to find leaks. But thats just me! i know some people LOVE no macroline. But even though i dont like the macoliness system i still think the fact that JT added macroline to a platform that was originaly designed with no macroline speaks volumes for how cheap it is.
Thats just my Opionion! I would like to hear yours!

Not only that its GoG that made this and being released under the JT brand, it's like a PL marker of a sort

No..... Im saying every other gun they have made has been cheap. So why would anyone want to buy a gun from a company making bad spyder clones? not to mention that its off of an old platform that never really had a chance to prove itself because smart pars went under. But to answer yout question no $1000 is by no means cheap. I wasnt talking about the Impluse being cheap i was talking about all of JT's other guns.
I hope you don't think $1050 price tag is cheap
And If what you said abut GoG making the marker then they should have been the ones to sell it. As soon as you put "JT" on anyting other than a pair of pants, jersey, or mask, people are going to be skeptical because of their history making markers.

What if the Vanquish or the Ressurection was released under the JT name and the Impulse was released under the Empire name? What would you say in this post if that happened, despite both being owned by Kee? It wouldve been along the lines of:
"I believe that Empire really has a chance of proving a well shooting marker that smart parts failed to fully prove."

No, that never even crossed my mind, all I know is that it is a balanced stacked tube poppit based on the 09 Imp from Kee released under JT, and I really don't care who designed it.
You guys think Simon designed this don't you?

It's still a gog marker sold under the jt brand
All I'm hearing is:
"Unheard of gun sold by a company notorious for shitty gear making a comeback back an even more notorious company hoping to make a comeback yet is still hated by the ignorant"
And all I'm thinking is:
"HipsterGun HipsterGun HipsterGun must have HipsterGun before it becomes mainstream at my field."

There are quirks and flaws. They may not yet be known yet, but very rarely do companies "get it right" out the gate.

Not brand judging the item.

Why not start high-end? Other companies have done it, and been successful. Go big, or go home.
Im more judging the quality. If jt is making their come back then good for them! But they should have started smaller. Not go right for a $1000 gun

Machine did the same thing, and have been successful, why can't JT?
I have yet to see a Vapor other then at PSP MAO last season... I wouldnt consider their launch successful (but maybe thats just from what ive seen). Also JT has built a reputation on ineptitude... They have a long standing history of making shoddy products and turning that around will be hard. Most companies change their names and then attempt to reenter the market making different products they are using their classic name which is understandable because they have been around forever. I just think a smarter business plan would have been to make a solid entry, midrange, and then high end marker that way the consumers can see the growth and have a trust built bond with the company after quite some time of recognizing the JT brand name with shoddy products other then a few...
