It's all the feel of the marker, I've had a geo2.1 and didn't like it compared to my dm7's shot feel. They both "kicked" the same but the dm just "felt" right. It's the very tiny differences that make someone choose a gun. I'm just a spoolie guy.
Now i will say, i just bought a 2012 g6r and actually love the thing. It shoots like a very snappy spool, and i love the "height" of the body due to it lining up better with my sight picture, the gun just fits me better. Now my NT on the other hand, it shot amazing, but the gun was so short i just couldnt get used to it, all i would see when i snap like normal was all loader.
TLDR; I love DM's and hate egos, that's the perfect poppet vs spool example.
