Stacked tube is easier maintenance but inline is quieter.

I prefer inline poppet because it's more comfortable for me to hold and shoot. Plus maintainence is a breeze. Also, they tend to shoot better.

Honestly, the stacked tube design is a little outdated.  Inline poppets and spool valves are quieter, tend to shoot better, and don't need to be lubed constantly because the bolt isn't exposed to air all the time.  With that being said, planet eclipse has perfected the stacked tube poppet with their ego line and they shoot just as well as any gun out there.

Any dm I've had has just ate lube up, and also you don't really need to lube bolts on stack tubes like intimidators

Any one with a B2k pds board?

Only the metal bolts.  Composite bolts swell and scratch up the breech when lubed.

Having shot a BUNCH of both, I prefer stacked. Staked typically gets better efficiency and, from what I've seen/observed, are quieter and more consistent.

 

The nice thing about Inlines is that most pretty much pull out as a single unit for easy cleaning and maintenance as well as being "away from environmental hazards like dust, dirt and debris" which in all honesty has never impacted the performance of any of my stacked markers.

My Impulse, Creed, and other Impulse all have bolts exposed to the air, and do not need to be lubed, ever. That's because they're delrin. Also, the rammer doesn't use as much lube as a spool. So I'm not sure what you mean by stacked tubes needing more lube, because that is completely incorrect.

 

And I disagree with saying that Planet Eclipse has perfected the stacked tube poppet. Up until the LV1, they ran on pressures significantly higher than they needed to, and they were louder and rougher, and less efficient than stacked tube guns made by other manufacturers.

 

Also, as judged by the LV1 and balanced valve of the Impulse, there's still innovation to be had in the stacked tube platform, and their current iterations can perform absolutely on par with just about anything else, making it anything but outdated. Please educate yourself a bit before spreading information that is simply false.

Stacked tube. I have big lineman hands and it feels great wrapping my thumb around the top tube.

Also, most newer spools have a different feel to them. It's like your hand is in the bolt almost. Stacked tubes seem to have a different stance. Just something noticed with how I hold each, not necessarily a fact.

Also, the efficiency is fantastic, and on semi I use the bolt moving back and forth to get a rhythm going
