Anyone else noticed the dramatic price drop for the JT impulse? I'm seeing them everywhere now for 599? Anyone know why this is cause it seems like a good deal for the good things I've heard about the marker?

It dropped the price on them so it naturally brought the resale value down.

Because it has a JT name on a gun designed by SP built on SP machines and otherwise a great shooter. Its biggest detriments are the lack of aftermarket parts ie triggers and such and the JT name itself. If empire brought it out under the empire name for $700 to begin with it would have been a contender.

So do you think its a good deal for 600? Heard nothing but good things about it but never really thought about picking one up until this new price

Its a fabulous gun at its new price, and a fucking steal at the used price.

It's amazing for the price. Just a poor campaign of advertising.

It's the most underrated highend on the market imo. 

 

Kee would have sold 10x more if they branded it under the Empire name instead of the JT name. Don't get me wrong, JT products have always been my favorite. Everything from the masks, pants, jerseys, packs (love my fx pack) gloves, etc. However, the JT branded markers of the past were always lowend beginners markers, unlike the impulse which they randomly labeled with the JT name. I believe this throws off people that don't understand the background of the impulse or Kee action sports in general.

 

I do love how they tried to give the JT name a highend look. I would love to see more highend JT markers in the future, but I feel like after the impulse they'll stray away from that idea. I hope not, but uneducated players just don't understand the connection. Some people don't even realize that JT is owned by Kee. 

 

Empire Impulse does sound cooler though imo  :P

Under cut the etek 4 am, and pretty much a brainless decision on whether or not to save the extra couple of dollar to go to an Impulse over the lt... Nice

This is the best deal in paintball right now.  I paid over a grand for Thomas Taylors Impulse, and I don't regret that, and I'll be picking up another soon.

If I wasn't already madly in love with the 09 Impulse I have I'd be all over one of these.

They feel REALLY good, not worth the old price to me but this makes it sooo much more attractive.

Why do that when I can pick up a brand spanking new one for $550? (plus taxes and stuff)

I'm honestly surprised that the local store matched the US price, but fucking right on

As soon as they hit the low 300 range I might have to pick one up.
