Cons: couldn't keep playing with it
i had a red/black vicious ego8, and it was by far the best gun i ever used. the gun was used straight as my main gun for about a year and a half for NCPA, NPPL, and practice, and never went down on me and always shot absolutely amazing. always got compliments from people when i would let them use it on how smooth it was and just how well it shot. LP valve in it made the gun even smoother with less kick, and made it a little more quit. only downside of this gun is when i quit for a little and i decided to sell it

Planet Eclipse Ego 2008 Private Label (Vicious, Origin, Etc) Based on my previous experiences with EGO's I picked up a green 08 Origin. I am completely satisfied.

Have an 08 Origin Ego in Green Mist with full SL kit. This was my first PE marker. I've been hooked ever since! I have owned it for five years and tech it after every use. It has NEVER let me down. I have tried many other brand markers in my 10+ years of ballin' and I always come back to PE and the amazing Ego and Geo lines of markers. They are the standard!

Ok my D3 team's field sponsor let us shoot these for free, which is why I have the price paid as 1.99. I've shot many different guns such as DM/PM's, DP F8's, Gen5 Timmys, and other Egos.

First Impression
Looks just like an 08 Ego, except where the logo usually says "Ego8" it says "Origin" in a kinda fancy text...

Pros
What I like most about the 08 egos are that they are SUPER lightweight. They pretty much set the par for what a light marker really is..
Also, these can take a beating at the field and are super easy to clean and maintain. The stock boards are programmable for any tournament needs. Consistency and efficiency are nothing to complain about either.

Cons
Pretty loud. You notice it in an indoor field which is where I used it. Not a big deal considering there are 10 guns blasting at once in a typical game..but I'd imagine a quieter gun would make it a little easier to hear your teammates and the people on the sidelines. Also, its got a little kick to it. Nothing that will mess up your shot, but it's there. Some people like a little pep in their guns, which is one of the main reasons to go poppit over spooly, but I kinda prefer to just shoot laser beams and have a gun that doesn't FEEL like its shooting 290 FPS.

Other info
Overall, this is a great marker. I played very well with it. Now that the 09s came out and you can pick them up for 6-700 bucks...they're definitely a value. You can tell these were made with the xball/speedball player in mind.

Like i said this gun is absolutely beautiful. I have not had one problem at all with this thing. It does not shoot the smoothest but it's not a spool so that's expected. As far as value goes, sure the lower level guns can shoot as good with upgrades but its an ego, it's reliable and shoot great every single time

had some kick, wasn't great on efficiency (77/4500 could barely get 9 pods), but it was a workhorse and i shot a lot of paint and a lot of people out with it! and that will probably be the one gun i regret getting rid of
