ETEK3s are great for the money. The only problem is you are most likely better off buying a used EGO as you will get more for your money. All in all, its a nice marker, great entry level gun. If you dont mind getting a used gun, I would go with a used 09 or 10 ego for the same money

Planet Eclipse Etek3 AM Very reliable, efficient for the price. ETek line has lower resale but thats it. Could use smaller bore barrel, LED board is nice.

Gun is pretty heavy but for a backup or a mid-level gun it is a great gun! Especially if you like PE then this is a great gun if you dont want to spend the money on an EGO or GEO. This or the Etha you can't really go wrong. The AM model has the metal parts and not composite. So they will last a little longer most likely depending on your play. The gun does have quite a bit of kick to it but i'm sure if you get the zick2 then it wont kick as much. def worth it if you can get one for a good price!

Cons: Loud
The Etek3, particularly the AM, is like getting an Ego for a much lower price. I personally was not a fan of the LT's plasticy feel and opted for the AM. I shot an Etek3 AM for over a year and could not have been happier with the gun. It accepts Ego upgrades such as the cure bolt series and zick series.

If you are a fan of the Ego platform on a budget, this is the gun to get.

Planet Eclipse Etek3 AM Great gun from PE for the price!! I love all their products, and expect nothing less from them. This gun shoots like a dream and ropes. I can't wait for them to come out with more ETEK series.

I have been using this marker for a little over 6 months and have been very pleased with it. Right out of the box it was easy to navigate through and everything stock met my expectations for a mid priced marker. After the listed upgrades, I have found this marker to be excellent for someone who can't drop 1,250 at once for an Ego. As long as you don't use crappy paint, you shouldn't be chopping balls very often (I've only chopped when using low quality paint). Overall, this marker has worked out great for me and, in my opinion, would serve as a great backup for someone who does have a higher end primary marker.

Planet Eclipse Etek3 AM Gun shoots like an ego 9 and is more reliable. Worth the money. Great gun for decent price and can keep up with any type of paintball.
