Etek vs. 05 Ego....

Not much of a difference at all, and they're about the same price too.

i dont have a karni but i do know they have a lot of kick/unreliable/hard matinance


for the shocker/etek

spool valve meaning smoother shooting
no kick but etek has little to none
feednech on nxt sucks balls and eteks is clamping
****ty sp on/off and etek has purge system
freak barrels suck and r overpriced and eteks is good stock
both regs are good
etek feels way nicer in your hands
socker weighs more
nxt requires way more matinace
nxt is unreliable and etek is bullet proof
nxt is made by smart parts ...enough said
they both have nice triggers
coast same

etek>nxt

I can say that the ETek is much quicker than the NXT I shot, both are nice guns but would take some ups to a stock NXT to make it par with a ETek, but thats smart parts for yea.

Etek Vs. Karni

wow, this is a toughie. (ive seen a UL'd, lazer eyed, halfblock, MQ karni, with the smoothest pnu's in the industry) (yes its blackbean's karni)

but compared to a stock pro-edition karnivor

Karni:
ergonomically correct reg position (yes -15* feels awesome)
LCD screen
bouncebeam eye
breakbeam sensor board
extremely nice stock barrel
best pnumatics (if its got the MP4 ram)
internal cocking system
sear tripper
double finger blade trigger (meh)
come with stainless steel hose, stock
twist grip feedneck
uses single detent
excessive milling (body looks very secksy though)
the shot is super quiet (a mouse fart in the forest is louder than this)

ETEK:
milling flows
double detents
clamp neck, stock
extremely light blade trigger
comes with macro and a purge system
ergonomically correct frame
better grips.
LED readout
the parts matchup closer than on the karni (space between frame and body, ect)
Full ELECTOPNUEMATIC
the rammer weighs less than 1/3 the karni hammer wieght
no backblock to have move around
louder shot
good overbore stock barell (karni comes with a kit)
you can feel the craftsmanship in the etek

basically, if i was into autocockers i would pick up a karni. they are nice guns, and they are a oddity
(showed up at the local field with my pro edition karni, and it turned heads fairly quickly) (all i heard at the chrono, (OMG dude look,he has a karni, he should be on our side, cause he can shoot like a mile away )

but the etek gets instant respect. i can go to any field anywhere and not get laughed at for owning this gun. its a very solid peice of machinery, it mass murders 10 men at a time, and everyone in the industry knows it.

ohh, and once again i prefer the etek over the karni

I did not see one single player bust out a squeegie in the entire two days I was at WC 2006. Including Freaks and all other barrels.

Not to mention I've been using the same Freak kit for over three years on two different guns. Used the same inserts and front the entire time and have had nothing but awsome results.

Yes I'm biased towards the Freak but I'm biased for a reason and it's not just because I own one.

Etek
all metal
open bolt
FAST
easily maintained
accurate
$750
nice feel
