Ive had my DP F8 up for trade for a while, I really wanted to get a cheap phantom and an old high end, possibly a DM4 or something. So I really wanted a 2-4-1.....but.....
A guy with a flawless 06 X-Fighter$ MacDev Cyborg really wants my F8. My F8 is black with silver, his borg is white with black, I love it. His borg would come with a virtue board , stock board and extra CP reg. My F8 only has an eigenram as an upgrade. Both of us would keep our barrels and it would be a straight trade.
Pics-

His Cyborg
 
Both guns are very similar, but the Borg will most likely shoot better and have better efficiency. Im really 50-50 on this one. I love my F8, but Borgs are soooo nice and Ive always wanted one. I cant justify pulling a detrevni and getting both. Any opinions?

If you think carefully and work at it diligently, I'm certain you will be able to come up with a DeTrevnish justification for getting both.

I've played maybe 7 times in the past 2 years because I keep breaking my ankle, haha.

I haven't played with either, but I really do like Borgs. I haven't heard a bad thing about them yet. I am kinda curious though, why is the other guy trying to trade a Borg for an F8? To me, that seems like a downgrade (no offense, I'm sure the F8 is quite nice). Is there anything off-putting about the Borg?

He really wants something newer. The F8 is 2-3 years newer. They're both similar besides the lpr and board. Honestly idk if it's worth it to trade. I'll get almost the exact performance. I just wish I knew what would keep it's value better.

You're doing it wrong.

I was smart when I started playing again after the last back surgery.  (Probably much too soon.)  For about half the season I just went out with whichever team was on defense, set up my camp chair at the flag bunker and waited for the other team.

F8 = FASOR

Borg = 2 way air driven ram.

Plus, the Borg is milled from Merlin extrusion, whereas the F8 is outsourced, if I'm not mistaken. Once again, not slamming the F8, I'm just really leaning Borg here. Amazing guns.
