Review: I only had this marker for a few hours for testing so I can only go with what i found in this short time. The marker was not adjusted at all and all settings were as out of the box.

Sound
When I first shot the marker i was quite surprised as it was not as loud as i was expecting. I had only ever heard the sound signature on videos and they sound a lot louder than in real life. You can tell it is a spool valve by its distinct sound and in noise terms it is not as quite as a matrix but maybe slightly less sound than a sft shocker.

Accuracy
This was impressive. Considering the only paint I had with me was cheap training paint that was very badly shaped and had been giving accuracy problems in training with other markers for the past few weeks. The Geo threw this out in a lovely straight line I did not think was possible with this quality of paint. In fact one of the other testers on the day said it reminded him of his old nyx matrix which, for those that remember them, is highly regarded as one of the best shooting guns of all time.

Efficiency
This was quite good giving about 1500 shots on a 68/45. This was with a high pressure reg but with out changing any settings. What was noticed was the Geo kept shooting paint till the reg showed empty on the bottle. Obviously bottle regs are not superbly accurate but it gives an idea of the low operating presssure required to operate the marker.

Feel
The Geo is a light weight marker which feels solid in the hand due to the fact it is single tube design and you can hold it right at the top of the reg. Wrapping your thumb over the barrel (if this is your style) is absolutley no problem as there is no lpr. The marker was tried with a light weight vlocity loader and also a heavier reloader b and although you can feel the weight difference it did not have the top heavy / loader heavy effect you can have with taller markers when snap shooting. Running and gunning with the Geo was also accurate as seems to be an advantage of single tube design guns. Overall very good.

I will try to update this review when i have put another 50 or 60 cases through the gun and had a chance to tweak settings and let the gun fully bed in.
Conclusion: During the test firing of this marker I noticed something strange. Everyone I handed the marker to shot it and turned round with the same big stupid grin on their faces and said the same thing......They wanted one NOW !
Overall from the limited period I have been able to test it I like it very much, and if the reliability is anything like the Ego this will be a very impressive package.

Quietness? What were you shooting? I work at a pro shop and I own 2 Ego's but the Geo is far from quiet!

what are you talking about, the geo is significantly more quiet than any ego. Just mayby not as quiet as a dm/pm/or luxe
