Jack Wood is well known, and respected, around here. You can be critical of a design while keeping the individual, and the company, in the highest regard.

Here you go designing all these raced out markers that can shoot a bajillion BPS and all we are asking is "you know, what you did 15 years ago, that".

There are times I wish MCB had a "Like" button for posts. Cause this would be one of those posts.

The pipe can be removed. You can use a standard ASA and macroline if you wish.

I think we did this all arse about face. We should have given you all the amazing internal changes and performance improvements first, and then the "unorthodox" appearance later. That way there may have been less of a venomous backlash.

Live and learn. Live and learn...
It's not really as unorthodox as it is ugly. The airline could have at least been ran up the guard and down the outside of the reg instead of just straight to it.

That's what I was thinking, this thing looks like a prototype.

Props to Jack for MCBing it up!

I wonder what kind of response this would've received if they'd just run the "hardline" straight forward out of the ASA and left the trigger frame to being just that? Instead of sort of having it hold air and look butt ugly and be in the way... toss in matching ano'd macro fittings and a length or two. I think the LPR is an actual improvement for stacked tube markers but overall I just can't stomach the aesthetics as it sits... it's ugly.

I also think Eclipse would get plenty of love if they did another run of cockers. E-Blade3 or not they'd get snatched up with the quickness. Empire beat them to it though... those look alright but my Revenge V2 is enough.

Also (on the topic of mech guns I'd wish for) it'd be rd to see a fully mechanical-pnuematic, i.e. non-electro (don't mention the X-Over or EMags please) spool marker. Base it on the Geo but use a plain old pneumatic/mechanical switch instead of a board, battery and noid. Make it have a light pull similar to an electro and market it for guys who are tired of buying batteries and for just in case your tourney takes place underneath a monsoon. It could do well... it could even be a drop in for a Geo perhaps...

Heck my Nova's are sick (huge) markers, very quiet at least (who farted?). Why not give the mech spoolie another shot? Sry for the essay, peace!

well now that empire is cockering it up again, how about some newer designed eblade kits or a new style electro valve drop in for cockers.
