A great marker for the value. These things are tanks. I've had this marker for 7 years and it shoots like I just bought it. Decent on air efficiency and not too loud. Another plus is that they are super easy to maintain, just lube the rammer and regs and you're set.

Ok the etek ego, uh igot mine on a trade for my dp g3 i had nothing on it. I got a etek with a virtue in it. When i first recived the gun it cycled air and when i tried to run paint through it she wouldnt shoot. So i started fixing slash up grading with a zick kit,cure 3 bolt and a hyper 2 reg. Then i just had to dial in the virtue bourd and it was set. It shots ropes. so with that being said i think the etek ego is a great deal if u can find one that wasnt beat to hell if u want to see my gun its on pbreview.com under etek ego and it has a beat up halo on it. thanks for ur time and go play some paintball

Planet Eclipse ETek EGO Needs to upgrade the neck to a c neck, other than that. My set up had a zick kit, and a hush bolt

the etek gets my vote for the best overall gun ever made. there were guns that might perform slightly better or were a little prettier but the tried and true equation of "what am i getting for the amount of money im spending". out of the box they did not need a single upgrade. even the stock barrel wasnt bad. ive played since 1997 and have owned many, many different guns and in my opinion the etek was the best value of any gun i ever bought

I also recommend virtue board for these as you can find them for under $50 bucks these days

Cons: Loud, upgrades becoming scarce
This was my first gun in the electric "high end" market. Bought 6/2013. Impressed with ease of use. However, you must tune the gun via three blinking lights without LCD screen (perhaps starframe upgrade gives you LCD but this is hard to find). Very easy to clean with pop out bolt and easily accessed internals.

The gun shot flawlessly on the field without any breaks. The next 5 or so field trials went the same. Took it out on the farm for some woodsball with family and friends and it held up extraordinarily well. Good air efficiency.

This is a gun that you can find cheap these days and not be disappointed. It can be loud, but with cure bolt and zick kit ( if you can find them) it is similar to much more expensive markers. The accuracy and dependability is the same for guns hundreds of dollars more. If you are interested in a marker that can do what you need in any situation then this is it.

I called planet eclipse on a etek 2 i own with a starframe LCD screen that was half dead when I bought it. They were amazing in customer support and got me a replacement board quite cheap and shipped quick. Planet eclipse stands behind their products and will be my go to manufacturer in the future.
