PE just cant seem to wait to release a new version of their GEO series without any major changes. Anyone who goes from one geo to the next increment up should feel robbed for buying it or trading and adding for it. the only benefit i see is from moving up two increment at least. for example: 2.0 skip the "2.05" and 2.1 and get a geo 3 or 3.1 or even GSL

There is no 2.5...

Also its not like PE is making any fewer changes than DLX, Dye or MacDev are with their spools.

The problem I have with Geos is how shitty they shoot. MacDev > Dye > DLX > PE

Are you sure there are no changes between the Geo3 and the new GSL?  Nothing in the engine, are you sure?

The only real thing I like about GEOS is the fact they they have amazing triggers in a single tube design. That is all

There is an exhaust port added IIRC that is intented to increase efficiency.

PE did for the GSL what DP already did for the G5. Once again, DP is ahead of PE in the innovation curve.

except the G5, along with the rest of the G-series, will have a significant aftermarket advantage over the GSL

That's just a 2 with a different style ASA.  Its not like PE made it themselves.

On the Geo series:
Geo1 was shit. It relied on a silly ball check-valve in the solenoid to seal the firing chamber, and apart from that it was a standard dump valve marker. It's shit.

 

Geo2 is great. Actually has a moving prop shaft (or whatever its called) to shut off the air flow while firing, very similar to the old matrix slambolt. Definitely worthwhile innovation.

 

Geo3 was basically the exact same as the Geo2 except it now has a fitting in the trigger guard to control for much air exhausts. Not worth it in my opinion, but some people think it's great.

 

The rest of the Geos are all minor updates and not independent markers. The GSL is NOT a Geo4. Planet Eclipse has done this with the Ego SL series since 2006. The entire idea is a limited edition marker with all the bling features you can think of like full barrel kit, multiple triggers, crazy gold-like plating on screws, crazy milling, etc. It's target audience is most likely not you. The Geo+, Geo2.1, and now Geo 3.1 are also just minor updates because they don't change the Geo that much. The changes are largely cosmetic and ergonomic (and I greatly value ergonomic changes).

 

In sum:

1) there have only been 3 distinct Geos

2) Only the Geo2 and beyond are actually worth anything

3) PE isn't Dye that re-releases the same marker with different milling every year.

I think people will be pleasantly surprised by the GSL.
