This gun is great! I love it I have had for almost a year and a half and it has never broken down. Planet Eclipse was smart and put an offset feedneck on the gun so instead of the paintball dropping into the gun it rolls into it causing less chops when shooting.

Ive owned my Etek3 for about a month, I bought it used locally. It was my first gun since getting back into the game after an 8 year hiatus. The gun shot great, was very easy to maintain, and is backed by one of the best companies in the sport currently. This gun is great for the weekend warrior that doesnt need the best of the best. This gun can keep up with anything else on the field, and was a joy to shoot. I recommend this gun to anyone that is looking for an affordable marker that doesnt need all of the bells and whistles of the high end markers.

Cons: Stock ASA, stock barrel, loud
Fantastic marker. It's my main - I've had people give me crap for using an Axe as my backup, but I absolutely love my Etek. I replaced the stock ASA with the POPS (really didn't like the macroline sticking out on the side and the screw-type on/off ASAs), and the bolt (TechT Kush) and it shoots ropes. It's not as fast as my Axe, but who cares if you're playing tournaments? It's a great marker that's supremely easy to take apart and fix.

One recommendation I'd make is to sweet spot it. Break it in with the proper air and dwell settings and you will fall in love with this marker - I guarantee it.

I've shot the gun for 5 years and have only had to replace 1 detent and 1 piston seal.

The gun shared the hard shot and loud sound that it's older brother the ego had up until 2013 when the LV1 was released.

With the LV1 and ETEK 5 in the market, the Etek 3/4 and older ego models are obsolete and should be laid to rest in the Planet Eclipse graveyard.

Planet Eclipse Etek3 LT very nice marker, Shoots just like EGO8-11 and for the price you cant beat that. don't waste your money on an ego when the etek is just as good for about 200 less, check it out and you wont be upset.
