Axe vs Etek vs Ego 08

Hey guys i have been looking at the BST section and wondering what to buy because the Ego 08 is about $420+, Axe on Ebay can find LNIB for $430 and Etek about $425. I am wondering since the ego and etek are about the same price in bst forums would it be better to get the ego? they are all about the same price but would a axe or ego be better?

i already know quite a bit about the guns but can someone just give me some advantages and disadvantages of buying each gun?

Ego 8 is an upgraded Etek, but the Axe is a smooth shooting gun. I'd say test out both an Ego 8 and an Axe (not hard to find at a local field) and see what you like better. I have an Ego 7 and a mini (basically the same 2 guns [8 was just slightly better than the 7 & Axe is a mini on roids]). I like them both.

The Ego will have the LCD display for quick and easy mode changes with is great on the fly. Both guns shoot smooth and are reliable. So test them out and go from there.
