Anyone know more about it? I saw it appear on the badlands site, but can't get very much information about it. the only thing I've been able to find is that its supposed to cost around $1500

It hasn't been out very long, so there isn't that much known about it. You can only get it from SP-authorized dealers who have certified techs on-site though, and it can only be purchased in-person (or over the phone?). So for more info you'll need to go to the store itself, or call them up. They're generally pretty helpful on the phone, although I can't say they were as helpful in person. And all I needed was a feed elbow for my Automag... :(.

My local shop is one of the supposedly 19 dealers nationwide that is an authorized dealer. I went in the other day and messed around with one. If you think they look odd in pictures just wait until you see one in person. It's not horrible looking, just very...........very different.

As for specs:

No internal or external air lines. Supposedly there's air channels machined into the grip etc. that direct air into the valve and such. It comes with a Micro- MaxFlo reg so people don't skimp out on a their air system. Just have the MaxFlo hooked up to your tank and you're set.

The circuit board TALKS TO YOU. No need to have a manual or memorize blinking light sequences. The board uses plain English to guide you through the settings (supposedly in a pleasant female voice, but I never actually got to hear it). It is also capable of speaking 5 other common languages. You get all of the normal tourney settings you could ask for plus some user definable modes.

There's more but I'm tired and gotta be up in 5 hours. I'll find the link tomorrow and just post it up so you can see all the info.

For $1500 it better be damn efficiant. I kinda like the no-hose design, but it's a smart parts so, I wouldn't even consider buying one. Not like I have the money. It seems long considering most highends are tiny. Is the trigger magnetic?

It is not made by smart parts. I know they have something to do with it, but it isnt made by them.

No LUXE is like the Invert of Empire but its smartparts...

They are a "separate" company but they are basically the same people an management.
