Between the 3 egos you listed---SL74, SL8R, and ego 09, the SL8R is personally my favorite ego out of all of them.

The SL8R is basically a ego 8.5 since it uses the cure 2 bolt and the same LPR as the ego 09. It also looks very sexy to the eyes, comes with the full SL kit (3 backs+16 inch+14 inch barrel fronts) and lazer eyes.

For a full review on the SL8R see this:

I would keep your ego, as the only ego that will feel "different" is the ego 10. However I love my ego9 but it is also the only ego ive shot.

Get an 06.

I've shot/owned every ego up until the 10 and sls. The 06 and 08 were my favorite. The 06 feels so nice and you could pocket around $200

Everytime I turn around, people are kicking themselves for letting SL8Rs get away... I imagine that is testament enough to me... I own an 05; because I am into the first gen milling and low low price... I wish I could afford to grab a SL8R but as it stands I own 5 markers all from the 05-06 era that were all high ends... and I hardly ever play...

you know i was skeptical about trading away my SL8R too because of how many people say they regretted it, or wanted to go back to it from their SL94, blah blah.. but i used my SL8R to up myself to an EGOX and i'm not looking back.. the '10 is a beast of its own and shoots ridiculously amazing in comparison to every other EGO i've held. imo save your money because the '10 is the beginning of the next wave of EGOs and it's the only one worth upgrading to.

My friend has a Sl8r. Shoots totally different from my 09, I like it and love the looks of it but when I get a gun its because I love it. I shot an Ego10 and liked it but still love my 09. Really go out and shoot all the different guns your interested in and find which one you REALLY like.
