cheers! yeah have seen the prices are falling on them! the geo worth the investment as a back up would you say, they seem really smooth firing!My main is an LV1, and my backup is a Geo 3.1 with IV Core. It came in handy in Puget this year, team mates Macdev went down and he used the Geo all event. Worked a treat. I suspect that even an etek 5 would make a lovely back up though. Depends on what the prices are doing these days, with the CS1 coming out and gtek, the 3.1 prices should be falling.
thanks sid! yeah just was alittle worried is it was going to be like the angel A1 situation where parts are gold dust to fine! may look into the ego thenNot outdated at all, parts are harder to get but not impossible and they do everything newer guns do for a fraction of the price.
agreed! i picked up the etek as it was at a good deal back the the day i used to always use dye as had dm7/dmc but only heard bad things on recent markers, geo seem to be the choice, thanks everyone for the adviceWhy does your backup marker need to be a step down? Most of this season I ran a Geo 3 a IV Core bolt, with a Geo 3 as a backup (both second hand... still cheaper than buying one brand new).
bloody hell! tough piece of kit then? by the sounds of it maybe a geo might be worth that little extra, if i can't find a desirable ego optionOver the last year, I've played a lot. I've never actually needed a backup marker - my Geo 3.5 hasn't missed a beat. I've lent it out to many people and it's still not let anyone down. The spare has only been used by others this year.
Ego 9/10/11 as backups work like charms.
It was on around 280k before a newbie accidentally reset it. Honestly, anything from Planet is crazy reliable - with my 3.5, I've replaced the Orings once. With a bit a forethought and maintenance (if you can get on one of the basic tech clinics they occasionally run at events, it's worth the time), there's no reason why you couldn't see a couple million shots out of them.bloody hell! tough piece of kit then? by the sounds of it maybe a geo might be worth that little extra, if i can't find a desirable ego option
