Ego LV1 vs older Ego...

04 March 2013 - 10:28 PM

I have quite a few spools right now, and I want to pick up a poppet for my gearbag: slightly better efficiency and a little more noise are sometimes exactly what I'm looking for when I play.
I've already chosen the Ego platform because I love the company that's behind them; and I'm not really thrilled with the handful of other companies that make poppets at the moment.

Anyway, as it is right now, I have nowhere near the amount of money I'd need to be able to afford the LV1; so I'd have to sell some stuff, and even then, I'd have to save up the cash for awhile. (College is taking most of my cash right now.)


My big question is: is it worth the extra money to wait and get the LV1, when I can trade or sell one (or possibly two) for a slightly older Ego that's in great shape? I know there's a decent difference in performance; but would I be happier with the LV1 in the long run?


(And yes, I realize that the LV1 has not been widely released yet.)

Feeling a bit.... Strange?

Just wanted to show off one of my favorite guns... I've wanted one for ages, and I finally got ahold of one.
Supposedly, the gun belonged to Sam Monville, back when he played for Strange. I'm not sure how true that is, but it IS signed on the inside of the grip panel by the man himself. (I was just too lazy to open it up and take a pic.)
Before anyone asks, yes I still have the original VA and reg; I just wanted to try something new.

Simon's leaving KEE!

19 February 2013 - 12:41 AM

Simon Stevens, chief engineer for KEE is leaving the company in pursuit of his own goals.

To all my friends in Paintball, it is true that I have left KEE. I really appreciate all of the support and people reaching out to see how I am doing. This was my decision, and although it makes me sad after having been with KEE/NPS for nearly 10 years, I am also very excited about the future. I am going to take a break (from the internet too) for to go snow boarding and clear my head, and then I will be back with my nose to the grind stone and doing my best to innovate and keep moving the sport of paintball forwards.

Magfed Shocker

06 February 2013 - 12:45 AM

So I've been toying with this idea for a number of years, and with the recent advances in magazine-fed technology, I may have a practical means to do it.

I want to build a top-fed mag-feeding Shocker (likely an SFT, since they're cheap and have flat sides.) I'd probably remove the feedneck, then make a mount that clamps on and holds the mag in place, while depressing the mag's internal detent.
I'm really liking the looks of the new DAM magazines, mostly because they're double-sided, and come in multiple sizes; not to mention they are flat-topped, which imo would require a less-elaborate mount/magwell.

Am I crazy? Are there any glaring flaws in my logic that someone would care to point out before I blow a ton of money on a partsgun shocker and some DAM mags?
Any suggestions in how to go about doing this?

I'm going to try to start collecting materials; but I may not be able to start the actual build this summer due to my college schedule. Any suggestions in the meantime are appreciated.
