Paintball gun economics...

Direct from Planet Eclipes website : " We put so much time and effort into creating the EGO9, SL94 and then perfecting and refining the GEO platform that we simply ran out of time to be able to create the GEO SL91 this year."

Ran out of time? Or did the economy finally catch up to them. Considering their "lower end" model, EGO9/SL94, retails for $1795 (yes, that's one thousand, seven hundred and ninety five dollars) maybe now is not a good time to bring one out with an even higher price tag.

People look at me like I'm stupid when I tell them a $1795 EGO9 is no more accurate, and hits no harder and shoots no further than an $85 Piranha. When ever a gun of that caliber shows up at my field I can only shake my head. Another Indy car at my go-kart track!

Egos are more consistent than Piranhas, and the stock barrel is better suited to shooting than the pirahna stock barrel. Just wanted to add that. There is a very slight increase in range (though I'm unsure), as the chamber in the ego is slightly lower than the barrel, inducing a slight top-spin much like an Apex/Flatline. Again, not sure about the last point.
