Anybody have any markers that were hyped up by others that have disappointed you?

For me it goes as follows- (don't shoot the messenger)

-Anything brass
-Luxe
-Vanquish
-LV1
-Ego 9 and 11

Lets hear em!

nothing wrong with it. it just showed me guns that cost 10x more perform better, but not 10x better, and that high end guns are a sham. i would have realized the same thing no matter which high end i bought.

I'd agree with this except for me the gun that was a disappointment to me was the first shocker I ever shot. The SFT came out and everybody was all gaga over it. I shot one and was just wondering ok so it costs 10x more than my Pirhana R6 Eforce but aside from being smoother and faster shooting nothing about it really struck me as being so great that it should be a $1500 gun. In fact far as I'm concerned very few guns on the market justify a price point over $1000. PPS guns and other built to order guns notwithstanding. If we're talking mass produced markers out of major manufacturers I figure nothing should cost over $500-600 max. I can justifty say $600+ for a CCM gun as it's annodized to order and set up to buyers taste or a PPS nasty painter I can justifty the over $1000 it would cost me as it would be set up for me and built how I want it. If I'm buying a gun and OOTB I'm going ok so it's a $1500 gun but the reg sucks it could use a full barrel kit etc then I'm sorry $1500 is a rip off. If a gun on the other hand like a CCM is coming with a full barrel kit with useable sizes a great reg OOTB and just being an all around amazing gun and it's coming in at $750 taxes in in Canada. In that kind of market the $1500 gun has very little to offer to make it worth the cost

PPS semis

Maybe it's just cause I'm so used to shooting cockers with slide triggers, but between my Nasty Phoon and my stroker, all I do is short-stroke it. Absolutely hate the trigger feel on it.
