Internally the Etha is a radical departure from anything seen before in an Eclipse marker. For the first time we utilize a spring return bolt system in the firing mechanism, allowing us to simplify the pneumatic side of the marker and use a Pull Poppet spool to release air from the firing chamber. The Etha comes delivered in a hard case with everything you need to look after and maintain it.

so i get this gun, im like ehh another PE marker until i shoot it, on 2000psi air on a 68ci tank i got 2 and 1/2 pods, chrono was consistent with 274-279 on 20 shots, i was using some very old paint to test out if it would chop and not a single ball break i was amazed my only complaint why did pe wait so long to bring this marker out.

Shoots great (ball on ball), I don't have any issues with the trigger being sloppy or having side to side play like others have complained about. The LED doesn't bother me but we shall see after my first night game of the year. It might only matter then because it doesn't during the day. Nice marker, the only issue I have is how long they are taking to release the EMC kit which has been talked about for months now. PE needs to get that moving. All in all its a great marker for the cost, great feel and shot. Happy with it just not the delays on the kit.

I absolutely love this marker. It's tough as nails and has some pretty awesome looks. It may not be as flashy as some other markers, but it looks great nonetheless. The modes are easy to set up, and the trigger is absolutely amazing. I've never used a marker like this where I don't even consciously realize I'm using a marker. Everything about it feels very natural. The LED is nice and bright (Some people call this a con, I like it) so that you can see out of the corner of your eye what the status is. I haven't tried playing with it at a nighttime scenario game yet, so the LED may or may not be annoying in a low-light situation. Other than that I love it.

Pros: very comfortable
Cons: shooting feel
I had time to finally try out his marker a few days ago, i originally thought the gun looked absolutely hideous, i will say it has some contour lines but over all i find the milling boring and odd looking. I'm also not a fan of of the plastic accent's like the grip frame, eye covers, and feedneck; just after years of playing lacrosse i've seen compost shatter while aluminum bends or nicks. i personally do not like the appearance of the gun, considering that the G4 has better lines and other low end guns look considerably better.

Altho i don't like the looks of the marker, it feels absolutely amazing, it is one of the more comfortable markers out there. It is very light, and the spacing of the the regulator and the grip frame is as close as to perfect as u can get. at least thats how i feel about it. once i had picked the marker up my opinion about the gun drastically changed, my opinion went from this is a over priced marker to wow this might not be so bad, but sadly that changed for me once i shot it.

The marker has this very weird feeling to it when shooting. it almost feels like its vibrating the whole time its shooting. it doesn't have any noticeable, kick to complain about and isn't loud as old ego's where, but it just feels like the marker is incredibly unsmooth ( i possibly just made that word up). this may have come from years of shooting spool values, but i have shoot many egos and other popits. But the way this gun feels when shooting just changed all the feeling i had about the gun, but im picky so if u don't mind it you won't care.

Lastly the gun comes with everything PE gives u with there other markers a great case, spare parts, a entire allen key set, and spare parts. This maker does also come with a shaft four, but it has considerably less milling than the one you'd get on the ego11.

In the end i wouldn't recommend this marker simply because of the the feel u get from the marker when shooting it. It comes packed with lots of goodies for the price but i'm so turned off by the way it shoots, that it drops my opinion of the gun so much. Like i said before i have shoot spool's for a very long time and that may be why i do not like this marker, but you might not care about the vibrating feel, if this doesn't matter to you, it would be a great buy, and seems to be very reliable do the the lack of orings and moving parts.

i bought my etha about 2 months ago, for what it is and the price i paid for it its a great marker it shoots good, very light weight, performs well. The only problem i had with it (which realy wasnt a problem) was when i first got it, it had a spring pop-it in it and balls were flying in all different directions, but it came with a uprade pop-it (springless pop-it) so i through that one in it and bam it was shooting great no other problems since. all in all i like it
