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.

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 dished out $400 for this gun only to have problem after problem... It may just be MY gun, but just so you don't have my problems... have the store you bought it from give you the recipt. I've had air leak after air leak with this thing... nothing has gone right... and only about 200 paintballs have come out of the barrel. Overall not very happy with this gun.

Unbeatable for the price.

Light, feels great in hand, shoots straight, excellent efficiency eays to use and seems durable/well built.

Downside is lack of color options and a good amount of kick, nothing terrible at all, just more than other speedball guns, but its still not broken in yet and if its the only downside for a third of a highend gun...

got my etha a few days ago. i was imediately impressed with the case. seems well built and ruggad. opening the case, i was pleasantly suprised to find a complete oring rebuild kit, legit barrel sleeve, lube and orings. pulled the gun out and was definately impressed with how light the gun feals and how comfortable the gun feels in my hands. i figured with the composite material, it would feel weak, like a childs toy. it feels really strong! so first time firing it... sooo smooth, and not much kick. i was suprised by how loud it was. i guess i was expecting something along with the dms/pms. its not a big deal, but i did notice it.

all in all, i was very impressed with the etha!!! i would recomend this gun to anyone and everyone!!!
