planet eclipse is a very reliable manufacturer. gun is great. stock board is fast enough for most people. you need to upgrade the grip frame to upgrade the board. that is the only bad thing. great over bore barrel. marker comes ready to play. you do not need to change any major settings. never chopped paint, and i have used the cheap $20 wal-mart paint. shot at least 10 cases through it.

I have Had my etek3 LT for about 10 months now and have shot upwards of 30 cases of paint through it. Haven't had a problem since I bought it. I haven't had a single chop but i have had a few barrel breaks because of crappy paint. Overall the con of it being loud is easy to fix by just trowing on a barrel with a lot of porting. Everyone worries about the composite parts but you almost can't tell the difference when you first pick it up. Finally I compared my etek3 LT to my friends ego 10 and literally they shot exactly the same the etek3 had just a little more vibration in the frame.


Thank you for reading and if you have anymore questions just pm me.

I've owned my LT Urban Digi-camo for about 6 weeks. My set-up includes a Rotor and Draxxus 68/4500.

Pros: I've shot over 3 cases of paint and not one break. This gun is accurate and consistent. Air efficiency is great. This gun is light weight and well balanced in my hand. The gun stays level when I hold it with a finger under the rammer back.
Cons: The board is capped at 15.4bps, honestly this is no big deal.

Upgrade: The only upgrade (if you can call it that) I plan to get is a barrel kit. I currently use either the stock or my CP back and front, depending on the day.

Impressions: I can't really find a fault with the gun.

The feel of the GRN frame does take some getting used to. The AM upgrade kit came, but the GRN frame is robust enough to take a beating. I will only consider getting the kit in the event I break a GRN component.

If you are in the market for a new gun, this is one definitely worth checking out.

I bought this gun in December before we went to a 2 man event in council bluffs. It shoots exactly like an ego and ALMOST feels like an ego. The ego seems to have a smaller grip frame and is easier to walk.
I have shot alot of guns from smart parts to dye's and this one will keep up with the best. Only thing i recomend is a board that shoots faster than 15.5 bps but thats if your using it for nppl rules. For PSP this gun is perfect as is.

I just bought this Etek3 LT like 2 weeks ago and I'm speechless....I owned a Original Etek and it was my pride and Joy, I went to a pump for a while and sold my Etek cause I needed money. Been using my A5 since, but I bought this Etek3 LT and put a Cure 3+ bolt in it, I've shot a few cases of paint thru it and no breaks, it's so dead on accurate. I plan on getting 2 more backs to match paint to barrel and getting the zick2, other than that...I will use this gun for Woodsball, Speedball and any other paintball in between....I have a Rotor hopper (sick hopper, I love it) and a 70/4500 hpa tank. If you clean your marker and keep the bolt orings oiled, this gun will last you a lifetime. I don't take apart the reg or anything else, I'll let a planet eclipse person do any of that once or 2x a year, usually just in the springtime have it looked over good by a PE tech.

Cons: none at all
I've used my etek3 LT many times already since i got it when it first came out. I have shot many guns and used a few different ones in tournaments and at practice. This gun can roll with some of the best out there. Some of my favorite features about this gun is that it is very light, shoots like an ego 9, comes in a great case, and it is very easy to . This gun can shoot ropes when I have my rotor on it. I have had some problems with my trigger at first that would not allow me to shoot as fast as I could (fixed now) and thats pretty much the only bad things I have had happen to this gun. I love my etek 3 and in my opinion it is the best gun under about $600. I recommend this gun to anyone playing in tournaments but is still on kinda a budget, GREAT GUN.
