    Agreed, Planet stuff is pretty rock solid. It's like WDP and my old angels, I never did anything to them except wipe them off and stick them in the bag for the next event. Just glorious things.

    I originally bought a Geo 3.1 (avatar photo), and a used LV1 as a backup because I got a good deal. I soon realized that I loved a broken in LV1 more than the Geo. So I used the LV1 all season with the Geo 3.1 (also bought IV core) as backup. My teammate in Puget used the Geo all event (until he broke his shoulder diving into the snake...gun was fine!)

    This year, I picked up a CS1, I have yet to run it through a game, so not sure if I'll keep it or go back to the LV1.

    Either way there are some killer deals on Geo 3's, 3.1's. Slap an IV core in it, and for the next 2+ years you'll have a perfectly good backup marker that'll run and gun in the top levels of tournaments.

    Planet markers are indeed the bench mark by which many try to aspire to but have you considered a DM 13, 14 or 15 as a back up or step up......

    I have a 13 and a 14 both have never missed a beat. Considering they can be had pre loved for under 300 sheets they have to be in the running? Or am I am about to incur the wrath of Mr Eclipse? Lol

    (Any opinion offered is that soley of the author and therefore can any inevitable flaming be kept to a bare minimum)
