In Topic: Next marker

26 January 2015 - 06:39 PM

i owned both and found the impulse to be louder (i used the impulse barrel on the ego11 as well) but a little bit smoother. personally i preferred the ego 11 to the impulse, just felt better in my hands. doesn't matter how good a marker shoots if you can't stand to hold it (not that the impulse is bad by any means. i just liked the frame and trigger on the ego 10000X more) not to mention the milling on the ego is extremely nice.

that's a wrap as it turns out, not actual paint.

 

i just recently got a GEO3 that was a midnight / bubble gum parts swap. as in, black and neon pink thats vibrant as fuuuck, some people just like those colors.


In Topic: Best speedball gun?

I'm mostly looking for a new gun and I want one that is going to be comfortable, light, and is just the overall best gun for the price.

Also if at all possible I want one that is going to have a high resale value just because I want to know that if I absolutely have to I can get as much of my money back as possible.

 

not a whole lot of stuff new in the $600-$700 price range. most stuff is $300-$500, then a big jump up to $1300+. your best bet brand new at that price range is most likely the new etek5, like most things the value will indeed drop over time, but eclipse products are nowhere near as bad as say Dye and the reflex for re-sale values.

for that price you can find a lot of great stuff used. luxes, ego 11's, DM14's, GEO3's, clones, G6r's.

 

pretty much have to figure out what you want in a marker before you can define one as "best" i have a luxe and an ego 11. ones deadly quiet and smooth as butter, but while being a gas hog at the same time. the other is louder and has more kick, but will never go down and can shoot a ton of paint on a fill. i wouldn't say one is better than the other, just tailored a different way.


In Topic: etek 5 vs ego11 vs geo3

12 January 2015 - 11:00 PM

from what i've heard the etek5 shoots very similar to to the ego 11. personally i'd take the ego 11 over an etek 5, thinner grips, smaller bore barrel, and IMO looks a lot better, while having that adjustable solenoid fine tuning capability. but i'm selling my ego 11 and picking up a geo3 for what it's worth, just more of a spoolie guy i discovered. for me ego11 = GEO3 > etek5.
