Also, Axe's are sexy smooth if you put a boss bolt in them. Sorta like a spool. I would look into possibly an older DM or a Drone DX if you want smooth. But the Drone DX is just a little more smoother than a Geo, from personal experience.

Geo's are the most Reliable Spoolie I've some across.. besides one having torn eyes, and one having a Solenoid malfunction(after I think the owner said over 75 Cases of paint) I have never seen a Geo just "Not work". Even though I'm not a fan boy for planet they make guns that just work through mud and shit.

Regardless, they are just not smooth shooting markers.

I wouldn't when we're talking about 500+ modern markers. Reliability shouldn't even be in question in this day and age. If it still is, then those companies better start making them more reliable, or dissipate away, because the "reliability" factor is categorized with having a half-decent stock barrel in terms of expectations.

Yes BUT! This maybe his/her first introduction to "Higher end" markers. Why confuse the hell out of someone with Valve Kegs and #99.66 o-rings? While the Geo is not the "Smoothest" Spoolie it is the easiest to maintain and keep functioning, which ties into reliability, how minor little things can cause a marker to just work horrible, or Chug along with not the greatest efficiency but still shoots over 265 and sprays paint, if the user accidentally over lubes or under lubes or an o-ring has a small nick in it.

Droids/clClones aren't lube sensitive, Shockers are really simple and DMs are pretty reliable as well. The difference with the Geo is that it can be neglected, which if you're spending ANY amount of money on a marker that shouldn't be something you do IMO.

even stock the axes can be tuned to be a smooth shooter, I would also throw my hat in for geos 2/2.1 along with the axe

-IF- This is the persons first Higher end, I seriously doubt they keep a routine maintenance schedule. Run a Shocker or a Clone dry(no lube) and see what happens. :)

I should of rephrased the word for Reliable to User error. The Geo 2 can put up with more User Error than other spoolies. :lol:

I have a proto rail and i lube that thing every time i play and maintain the reg every 4 times, regular maintenance isnt hard... my vote goes dm, marq or clone.

i would do an older Impy or shocker, older ego, or an axe with the redline and super freak. if you can get one, a Luxe is cool but i think the axe or the smart parts are your best bets. disregard these XD

seriously tippmann player, do you have the slightest clue on what the red line and super freak kit does?

if you did go with the axe, the bolt would be had before that red line, heck i would lurker the fuck out the axe before getting the red line
