I bought an 05 ego back in 2006 or 2007 used, so please disregard the price paid.
back then the marker was great. For it's time the marker was fast, accurate and efficient. It does sound like you are shooting a cannon though, and mainly compared to markers now it was kind of heavyish. Although compared to markers now it is not as accurate, fast, or efficient either.
I loved my 05 ego. I had a ton of ups on it. If you can find one used I would reccommend it mainly for those that want to take a try at tourny speedball markers but don't want to spend over 300 currently as of 2011. Chances are you can find one with alot of upgrades. I do recommend for ups a new board, barrel, laser eyes, and feedneck. Although those can be considered a personal preference.

Although you do have to realize that as of 2011 parts for the 05 ego are a little harder to come by.

Pros: shoots ropes, built like a tank, and looks amazing
Cons: heavy, has a pretty hefty kick
The price I paid was back in 2006 so dont think I was a ******* I paid that much for a 05. Ive been shot this gun in 2006 and 2007. Back in the day this was the gun to have and its the one gun Ill never sell. Truly a piece of history, but lets get down to the review.

How does it shoot? 9 (1-10)
I give it a 9 compared to markers nowadays it does shoot ropes but compared to the Luxe's that just shoots lazers. Has a bit of a kick to it, although back in the day you probally wouldn't of noticed since you were shooting so damn fast and so damn accurately.

Performance? 6
Why a 6 you gotta say? Well lets look at it by todays standards its HEAVY. This thing weighs more then my Ego 10 with a hopper and balls with mud all over it. Although it was heavy its built to last I can imagine taking this thing to field with me. Its like the comparison of a ak-47 to a m16. This thing is the AK in the picture its just built to last and shoot through your toughest days.

Maintenance? 9
EASY.<--- Thats a period

Planet Eclipse Ego 2005 (Ego5) My first tourney gun, shoots ropes very easy to maintain/lube/clean. Wish they made a solenoid for these still, I would still shoot one.
