I have been shooting Egos ever since my first 06 that I bought from a friend for $750 back in 2007. From the start, I loved the way Egos shot. They are so fast and so accurate, and they look awesome. In my opinion, the first thing that should be upgraded on the Ego is the bolt. The stock bolt works alright, but just can't deliver the performance that a Cure bolt offers. There's not too much else to do to the gun, it is a solid performer out of the box. I installed a Violent rammer in mine, it makes the gun shoot a little bit smoother and I don't need an allen key to remove the rammer cap making maintenance that much easier. Over all maintenance on Egos is a piece of cake, regular maintenance takes under 5 minutes for me and completely taking my gun apart, cleaning it, lubing it and putting it back together takes me about 15 minutes. It's a very reliable gun, you can throw it in your gearbag after a day of play and come back the following week and it will perform great, I could never do that with my DMs or shockers. They are extremely accurate and have a great barrel out of the box, but with paint supposedly being smaller nowadays an aftermarket barrel kit may be a good upgrade, cocker threading ensures there are plenty of choices to choose from. 06 Egos may not be the smoothest shooting gun out there, but they are easy to maintain, reliable, light, deadly accurate, and fast as hell. I'm completely sold and will always be a member of the Ego family thanks to my 06........ As a side note I'd like to say: DO NOT SCREW THE GRIP SCREWS IN TOO TIGHT, THEY WILL GO RIGHT THROUGH THE SOLENOID...

The 06 Ego was one of my favorite markers. At the time it was introduced, there was nothing that could touch it, IMO. The fact that it is coming up on it's 8th birthday, and is still a gun that could compete on the circuit (provided it was reflashed that is) speaks volumes for it's quality and design. I have recommend used Egos to numerous people as a quality first marker. They vastly outperform Spyders and other lower end markers, despite costing about the same used.

Planet Eclipse Ego 2006 (Ego6) At the time I got the gun for a steal, but it was just the same as an 05 ego with a few milling differences.

this gun has done good to me for awhile, and needs very little maintenance

it sucks air like a vacuum, suggest you buy a 68 or 70, no lower

Nice to use these guns once and a while rather than the daily shooters. Definitely performs to par but has the weight factor and size issue that make it a less common for a tournament gun these days. Great gun none the less!

Planet Eclipse Ego 2006 (Ego6) Out of all the Ego body designs, this is by far my least favorite. But it is still a reliable gun that shoots ropes. I have upgraded mine with a CP regulator and a CP full barrel kit.

I had the Pevs with a virtue and stock board. I liked it. I havent ever cared for Pe until the last year. I have always been a Bl guy. For how old this gun is and the price you can get it at, its awesome. I had a cp trigger and could rip ropes all day.

If you can get one.
