This is an amazing gun. I upgraded to this marker from a beginner one. All I can say is that this is an amazing marker and I wish I would have just started with it. It may cost more than some other markers but well worth the money. it shoots incredibly accurately and smooth. I couldnt see myself spending the extra money for the AM version, but the LT still has the ability to upgrade the board to a APE Rampage board.

Overall, I would recommend this marker to anyone looking for a first or even an upgrade from a beginner marker.

I've had this marker since May 2011, and I'm so glad I bought it. It is a fantastic marker for the money. It is very easy to clean, very lightweight, and it has great looks. Another big plus is that I have never broken paint, even with garbage paint. This marker is also very reliable. No problems whatsoever with it. The only thing that I don't like is how loud it is. It sounds like a machine gun to begin with, and it's even louder with my APEX2 barrel on it. However, this is not a big issue. If it's reliable and doesn't break paint, then I'm happy. I would absolutely recommend this to any player, whether they play woodsball or speedball, rec or tourneys, or is a beginner or pro.

Needless to say the marker is great. Its a workhorse that can go through everything no problem. Its accurate, light, fits great in the hand, and is very easy to upgrade. Definately a great back up marker.

my issues are just preferences:
*loud, but i hear the upgraded bolt helps
*plastic frame, where the am is metal
*can chop lower quality paint as opposed to the higher ends that dont
*in ability to get a good anno on it
PS- the price paid says 400, which was the aprox. trade value

Planet Eclipse Etek3 LT Nice guns, only flaw is the parts that are made from plastic. Gives the gun a kinda cheesy feeling

Etek3 is an amazing gun for the price and durable as hell. I'm never afraid to loan it out or toss it around. The maintaining of this gun takes literally nothing. Its practically idiot proof and no matter what u do it will be dependable - even if u treat it like crap.

Cons: A bit loud
I upgraded to this from an upped Spyder Pilot, and it's really no comparison. It's like going from an unreliable Prius to a new Corvette, or in this case an Aston Martin!

I bought it used and gave it a good cleaning, which also showed me how the marker operates (kind of like a far more advanced Spyder). Took it out the fallowing weekend and enjoyed it so much compared to the Pilot. Didn't have to worry about jackhammering, or chopping paint. Just had to keep feeding and shooting it.

Pros
-Fast
-Consistent
-Reliable
-Low kick
-Very sexy

Cons
-Stock barrel is good, but .693 is pretty damn big
-A bit loud, not as loud as my Pilot though
-Stock board settings had a bit of a learing curve to figure it out

Already bought a Freak jr to solve the barrel problems, but didn't have a chance to use it yet.
