ok i was at my fiends house today and shot his nt. i was dissapointed. its just a dm9 with new milling, a tad bit lighter, and barely more efficient.
sure it felt good in my hands, but so does the dm9. i do not suggest ever buying this marker brand new for 1500$ or 1700$. mabey in a few years when it becomes actually affordable to most paintball players. so dye, nice try on the nice try (nt).
never should you pay over 1200$ fo a paintball gun. as much as i love paintball, i just dont believe that you should spend a grand on a paintball gun.
sorry, just had to get that off my back.

Most paintball guns are pretty similar in that they all shoot little balls

it shot good, but just as good as all the other dm's. i just dont see why someone would waste over a grand on a single paintball gun. especially $1700. its just a dm9 with a couple small changes. dye probably spent $500 changing the dm9 into the nt. now they charge you $1700 for it.
not worth it. for that price, it should do something other than just shoot paintballs. like the luxe. it talks to you. the nt does not. im not a fan of the luxe, but at least with its large price tag, it does something other than shoot money out of its barrell<---(spelling)

I'm no Dye buff myself, I'm actually a total PE fanboy, but are you guys sure it's "just a DM9" with some minor changes? I mean, doesn't it NOT have a LPR? If so, wouldn't that be more than minor changes?

Actually, he does have a point. Last weekend I played games with a DM6, DM7, DM9, and NT, and besides being slightly lighter and smaller with each version, they all felt quite alike.

My DM7 with the TechT L7 kit shot just as quiet and smooth as the NT did.

The 6 and 9 had a bit more vibration during the shots because of more moving mass, but otherwise shot virtually the same..

I will laugh as they overwhelm our enemies in a flurry of spotted banana hammocks.

The dm7 shot like a NT :blink: seriously, it should be smoother and quieter.
the NT is loud and has more "kick" to it

they do feel like, they are all made by Dye so thats logical.
But when it comes to techniqal differences its bigger than you know

the solinoid are quite different on both too

Outside of Spool vs Stack Poppet vs Inline Poppet, technical differences dont matter to me. They all shoot paintballs at 300fps, 15+bps. The only reason that one gun is any "better" than another is individual comfort.

As far as DM6/7/9/NT differences, the NT has different tech behind it. The DMs are all the same, for the most part. But regardless of tech, the in hand feel of each one is practically the same, until you get to shooting.

While shooting, the 6 and 9 had more vibration than the 7 or NT. Vibration does not equate to kick, at least in the capacity I am talking about here. By vibration, I am talking about how easy it is to feel the marker operating. For instance, Cockers have a ridiculous amount of vibration, but not a lot of actual "kick" or barrel rise.

The NT and 7 were quick little pops with fairly small amount of vibration, and pretty quiet. Each was about the same in terms of vibration, sound, and barrel rise.
The 6 and 9 were both a little louder, and had a noticeable increase in vibration, but did not have any more barrel rise than the 7 or NT.

I will laugh as they overwhelm our enemies in a flurry of spotted banana hammocks.

... and here we find out, that paintball development over the last 6 years has been stuck at the same level, with minor changes in milling and weight only and almost no innovations.

I would suggest just not buying the NT then Posted Image

Guns are all preference anyways.

If someone wants to pay 1500 so be it. Their choice.

only one on this forum who understand it ;)
and tippamnn 98 will shot a paintball 300fps just as an NT would...no difference there(well, exept that the Nt can shoot more brittle paint :P )


But Sasquatch, My DM7 doesnt feel the same as the NT at all, different sound, different feel, different shot(vibration, kick and all that)

Not saying this is a reason to buy the NT but at NPPL Chicago it seemed like EVERYONE was shooting NT's. They have a cool sounds and seem like they

shoot great. I love the fact they have no FSDO

differences:
1. NT has no LPR, DM9 does
2. NT has quick snap grips, DM9 doesn't
3. DM9 has the Fuse Bolt, NT doesn't
4. NT has the ironmen trigger, DM9 doesn't only on the Ollie Lang and Ironmen edition does it come with the Ironmen trigger

Similarities:
1. Hyper 3
2. Dye UL
3. they're both made by Dye

but yea I'm not that big a fan of the NT either. i've held one before and i have to say it feels great. but it's just not my type of marker. and it's expensive

the no lpr is the 1 good upgrade. the snap grips are nice, but unnecessary. its not a big deal to unscrew a couple of screws.the bolt still fires the paintballs, just different ways. the trigger is what, $40? i would pay 700 and 40 for a dm9 and the trigger, rather than 1700.
there. enough said.
dye nice try not worth it
