Hold and shoot them and decide for yourself. When you're ready, you'll know which one to buy.

Just curious, why these three?

I don't know much about the empire vanquish, but between the LV1 and the GEO3 I would go with the LV1, as it's slightly smoother and more efficient. Though I would also do what BurningPlaydoh said, as only you can decide which one you like the best, as when it comes to highend markers it's personal preference more than anything.

Depends if you like spool or poppit better, if you like poppit then just go for the LV1 but for spool thats up to you between the Geo3 and Vanquish.

Well if you're going for a smooth spool, I'd say go with the Vanquish. But if you just want a marker that's single tube, out of preference, though don't really care about shot quality, go with the Geo 3.

When you get to this price point, it's all personal preference. Try to get your hands on all of them and go from there.

I have been saving up forever and did the smart thing by getting a crappy gun, then got a great tank and hopper, now I am ready for one of these guns and heard planet eclipse is really reliable and sells great top of the line guns. I also saw the convenient aspects of the vanquish and thought it might be nice also. Not really into the luxe or clone so I am staying away from them.

I don't know if this is important or not, but the trigger on the Vanquish is honestly one of the worst I have ever dealt with.

I love you.

If you are one of the fucks that hates the lc1 because of te hard line and reg grip look, go with the geo 3. If you have any sense of good looks, go with the lv1

When your spending over $1000 on a marker looks should be the last priority. For me shot quality has to be good but above all it better have rock solid reliability. I'll be damned if I spend high-end money and I turns into a pretty paper weight after like 3 pods. I don't care how smooth it shoots or nice looking it is. But to the op I got the lv1 almost a month ago when it first came out and its fucking phenomenal. It's super smooth for a poppet and its an eclipse so you know its gonna be rock solid. As for looks I got the poison and to me its beautiful. And btw the hard does not get in the way at all and the reg grip feels amazing in the hands. As for the other 2 options. I know nothing about either so I can't help you there. I hope this answers your questions about the lv1 at least. If you wanna know more just ask and I'll answer your questions the best I can.

When you are spending that much on a marker they all shoot great (mostly) and have great features. Looks are very important. You need to like the way it looks. You wouldnt buy a ferrari with a body shaped like a minivan

Funcion > Form

This is a moot point since the LV1 and basically every other high-end except the Vanquish look phenomenally sexy.

To the guy saying that you wouldnt buy a Ferrari shaped like a mini van...That comparison is far from valid as the reason for purchase of a mini van and the reason for purchase of a Ferrari are far from the same. All vehicles drive on roads but are made to do very different things. All paintball markers are made to play paintball and shoot people not carry a family of 7 vs Racing on the freeway. Looks should always be last when spending over $1000 for sure. Like DamBaller said I`ll be F@$^ed if I have a gun thats pretty but wont shoot paint reliably. Function over Fashion all day. Does it work when I want it to? Does it feel nice? Does it shoot paint where I want it? Does it look nice? That my order I would follow

At 1000 i think looks are the first thing i'd want. Why spend 1300 bucks on a new highend, smooth spool, quiet shot, moderately efficient, but with all the same features, when its ugly. you can get a Rev-I for 800 and it's a fucking beautiful shooter, plus its very pretty IMO. I think there's no reason to spend over 800 on a gun either way, since after about 600 bucks they are pretty much equal. Get what looks good, and is most comfortable

Lol talk when you have actually used high ends enough to judge them.

I know what he meant. And honestly, shoot a GT, DM, and *insert other generic high end spool* side by side and tell me they dont shoot damn similar if not the same

Maybe if you don't use high end spools regularly.  If you do the "character" of a marker is easily felt.  There are much bigger and more important differences than shot quality between high-end markers anyway.
