PE is starting to become like WDP, comming out with a new marker every month, and not much of a change each time.

Not argueing with you Jack, but the poster listed this as weight:

Weight: 1.12 kg / 2.47 lb with Barrel, On/Off/Purge, Regulators, Fittings and Battery Length: 508mm / 20.0” with 13” Barrel

Isn't an 06 2.00 lb even? Or have I been lied to all this time?

PB&S you have one.... drop on the same gear and weigh it up. Don't forget that people way their kit all different ways. We always weigh all our kit with everything on it, like it comes out of our box.

Off our very own web site, the 06 is 1108g = 2.44 lb with the same items fitted.

Ehh, I took the word from a teammate of mine who weighed his Ego.

Still good job on the ETek, I will have to pick one up.

Nice, looks better than the other EGO's, and the new reg body design is quite nicer than the earlier variants, kudos.

Care to expand on that? To most people it is a mid to high level marker. What kind of beginner(sp?) is using a ~$750 marker?

So, will the lack of QEVs affect anything other than efficiency? Say how it shoots?

yeah...your gun won't be able to cycle as fast....the top bps is gonna be lower and you might notice a difference in how much more smooth a gun is shooting with qev's in it....

Half a pound eh ? How bout we do the math
0.5 lb, lbs = 226.796185 grams,
Etek: 2.47 lb, lbs = 1120.3731539 grams or 1.12 KG
Ego6: Off the P.E. website "STATS:Weight: 966g; Ego 6, Eclipse On/off and regulators.
1108g Inc. Shaft Solo Barrel"

I will let you guys do the math from there...

Cough only 12.4 grams heavier for the morons...12.4 gram = 0.027337321 lb, lbs so basically you weren't even close...

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
