Yes, there is a huge difference in shooting performance, but not only because of Tomba vacuum barrel muzzle. But because of overall much more hydrodynamic spear, including thinner mono line (1 mm). Well, actually that are all elements of Tomba benefits.

Re: Cyrano Evo HF Hands On Review

Mares may find a better use for the "Cyrano Evo" by transforming its hull and rear handle assembly into a new version of the "Mirage" and fixing all the small design errors at the same time.

Who knows, it is a possibility as the "Evo" is a high mount inner barrel pneumatic gun and so was the "Mirage". Past history shows the "Cyrano" rear handle (circa 1994) was used to create the "Sten 2001" model. Previously the "Sten" was the "Sten 87" model, but by opening up the interior mounting sleeve in the "Cyrano" rear handle plastic molding the larger OD barrel tube for the "Sten" could be used. The "Sten" is traditionally a 13 mm ID inner barrel gun. The "Sten 11" is the old "Spark", but it seems odd to confuse everyone by giving it that name.

Anyway say after xx years we are to see a "Sten 20xx", that should be a "Cyrano Evo" with a 13 mm ID inner barrel. In my view that would not be a good idea as "Sten" users will then be reaching for their Mares "designer voodoo dollies" and a fresh supply of hat pins, having exhausted their last lot on the "Evo" creators. This is because the "Sten" has always been a concentric inner barrel tube gun and it should stay that way.

The only other option for the "Cyrano Evo" handle is to make a 13 mm inner barrel gun that is not a "Sten", and that gun would have to be a "Mirage", in which case they can then fix both those guns as they had design flaws, although they were not "show stoppers".

By chance I rediscovered this thread and the answer to the speculation above is the "Cyrano 1.3", but no "Mirage Evo". As for the "Evo" Mares quietly turned it into the "Cyrano 1.1", ditched the fore-aft adjustable trigger for a metal one and a metal line release with new geometry.

You don't have the metal trigger and metal line release on any of them, right?
