Okay. I've been planning on getting a Cyborg 06 for sometime now but still cannot get it until I get some more $. What I wanted to know is, will there be a newer Cyborg coming out soon? I always know that Macdev strives to make the best out of there newer markers, so has anyone heard of any news or rumors?

I think you can expect to see it at World Cup, like usual.

But be warned, I am quite confient that the 06 is as good as any marker can get for a while.

Now I'm making a "New Cyborg" Savings next to my "Cyborg 06" Savings and my "Private Indoor Field" Savings.

When you think about it the improvement might not be to major they kept the same efficiency for a while and they got milled more and more but who knows it could be revolutionary. If you have all money you need at nov then wait till the new one.

Wait, wait, I'm having a vision...the new Cyborg will be milled down even further. It will get a few more shots per bottle, and shoot a little faster. It will come with a slightly more accurate stock barrel and it will weigh a little less. The profile will be slightly smaller.



Oh wait, that's what every upgrade is. And every one of them is trying to make "the best gun ever". Forgive my cynicism.

I know. But it's always one of the things that gets me bad looks when I try to explain the game to outsiders. I feel like the guy in "Spinal Tap". "But, this one goes up to eleven!"

And yet, we all know people who must have this year's version because it's so much better than the one they got last year. It's sorta pathetic sometimes.

QFT. i know a guy like that.

honestly, get a older cyborg, or a 06' if you must, and get it upped like crazy. im going to the extent to mill and anno mine. i dont plan to buy another high end marker for a while. im toying with the idea of a pump or automag as a project gun, but the borg is here to stay.

i dont think people under stand that with some ups, older guns are just as fast as new ones, at a fraction of the price. but i guess thats how companies make money.

the 04', 05' and sonic cyborgs were all generally the same. so after two years of course its going to look like there was a big inprovement. honestly the pre-06's can perform just as well as the 06'.

if a company made a marker the best possible entity it could evolve into.... what would they have to release the following year?
-campanies always make their markers slightly less efficient than it can be, so people buy new bolts/internals.
-campanies always make boards that the user wont be satisfied with because they get a certain percentage of aftermarker boards sold.
-companies always make a crappy feeling trigger, so people buy new ones.
-campanies always release aftermarker accent kits or parts that you will just HAVE to have.

the man is all around you, BOINKing you like crazy. even in paintball... B)

THink about cost it dosnt realy cost 1900 for a sl66 to be made maybe like 500 but people must have it they must its just as good as a 05 but its slightly smaller. 04 borgs are like 650 new and do about the same thing and used is better basicaly. Think about it it might cost 300 to make a shocker give it a crappy board thens ay you can have the black heart board for a nother hundred which it dosnt cost that much so you make a double sale.

But everyone still wants the new one right? When have you said "A DM6, pssht, I want that DM5, that looks promising."

Plus what I really want to see is the new milling. Ever new milling of the Cyborg seems to look hotter and hotter. And you never know when someone is going to pop out with something revolutionary.
