Hey all!

I'm looking into getting a new marker and am sold on Bob Long. I've watched the videos that Mike has (absolutly awsome web site by the way if you see this Mike) and can't decide between the Marq or the Vice. I understand the differences between the two, but still trying to understand a $50 difference. If you guys have any more info for me to help me make a decision it would be most helpfull. Thank you in advance.

Vice is efficient, light, and stylish and low maintenance
Marq is quieter, and a little more consistent
Would a Marq go faster than a Vice if they both had 4 eyes and a good Tadoa or Virtue
But I would go for the Vice

I'm not sure what's up with the $50 difference. Anyway that's a pretty small amount when you're talking about $700+ markers...

A friend of mine has a Marq and it's fucking amazing. I've never shot a Vice, but I've shot other poppet valved markers, and the Marq is incredibly smooth feeling for a poppet, and also pretty quiet as well. The Vice does have a significant efficiency advantage over a Marq though, unless you install the Proficiency Engine. Then they're about tied.

I'll try to touch on something other than what has been said already.

Vice's are almost just as smooth, and VERY easy to maintain. A bit lighter to if you're into that.

Marqs are basically loud versions of a spool valve. VERY smooth. However, maintaining the engine takes some practice/knowledge compared to lubing 2 o rings on a ram.

"All the angles are at angles, there's a bumper inside the bumper, and the reg is completely air flow, flowing air faster in two different directions...and then they cross eachother. The bolt kinda like an Eclipse, it's just a keets-a-bobble. There's always varr-ubles, and you've gotta remember, uhh...there's always varr-ubles" (Bob Long in the G6R Video)

Thank you all who replied. This helps a lot. My first instinct was to go with a vice and I think that's the way im going to go. Unfortunatly my local pro shop dosen't have them in stock so i can't really compare them in person. So im going to wait till Huntington Beach and check them out at the trade show.

Thanks again!

It really doesn't take much knowledge to know how to lube a marq... if you need any help with that watch a maintenance video on youtube.

I own a Vice, and I owned a marq. The Marq is much smoother, quieter and less efficient. The Vice is lighter, louder, has a tiny bit more kick and is more efficient.
I personally liked the feel of the marq more.
