In Topic: KLR VS VIO

29 March 2014 - 04:24 PM

The ONLY HK product that has ever been worth anything is their speedfeeds.  Anything else I wouldn't even waste my time.  Based on HK's lack of quality and Virtue's history of quality the only mask I would consider between these is the Vio.

If you are concerned about the price you can pick up a used Spire for a decent price.

I use Monkey Poo in all of my markers and it works great. 


In Topic: Cyborg 6 vs LV1

24 February 2014 - 08:05 AM

Ive shot a couple LV1s and they shoot alight.  As for your categories:

 

1: cosmetics:  I think the LV1 is ugly.  The pipe thingy makes the gun look unfinished and unrefined.  Almost like they took the gun straight from a prototype and brought it to production.  I know Jack Wood doesnt like the idea of going macroless because he thinks it is a liability.  I would argue that every other high end company has got on board except for PE.  PE is behind the curveball here...they can put as much rubber as they want on the gun but the LV1 is still ugly. 

The Cyborg 6...the lines make it look tough, industrial...like it means business.  Although the silouette isnt exactly original the details make it a unique looking gun.  It has rubber in the right places and all of the air passages are internal.  So here the Cyborg is a win.

 

 2: smoothness of shot:  The LV1 is smoother than any Ego before it, hands down.  The smoothest poppet out there?  That is arguable.  I had a Vice that would give the LV1 a run for its money.  There are many other guns that are more than capable of competing with the LV1 in this area.

 

The Cyborg has always been known for its smooth shot.  I have no doubt the Cyborg 6 will be a very smooth shooting gun.  Will it be smoother or just as smooth as an LV1?  That remains to be seen.  Winner:  TBD

 

3: reliability:  PE has always placed reliability at the top of their list when it comes to their guns.  They are simple, rugged, and require little attention. 

 

MacDev, it seems, places reliability on the ability of the user to do proper maintenance.  While no gun will work forever without maintenance PE guns can go a bit longer.  MacDev guns are a little more sophisticated and refined in this area.  So they require more TLC.  I think of it like a Mustang (PE) vs a Lambo (MacDev).  Winner:  PE when it comes to neglecting the gun (unless the user does proper maintenance on their MacDev gun)

 

4: customization:  You can take any gun and use it on any field.  Speedball guns shoot just as well in the woods and in scenario games as they do on the speedball field.  And woodsball guns can do the same on the speedball field.  It has more to do with the preferences and abilties of the user than any of the equipment they may be using.  Winner:  Both


In Topic: Droid vs. Reflex Rail vs. Axe

21 November 2013 - 08:09 PM

The Droid runs circles around the Rail in every regard.  As for the Axe...it is a solid gun but as stated above it needs aftermarket parts to compete with the Droid.  With a straight stock configuration on all 3 guns the Droid wins hands down.
