It's really a quite different operating principle than the GEO, if they had made something based on the same platform I'm sure they woulda gone with G-Tek

It's a different engine/bolt design so they don't want people thinking it's a lower end Geo.

This is surely a competitor for the axe not acheap geo. I assume they will shoot very similar.

A few things that I believe are going to stand out with the ETHA over the AXE is the easy access to the eyes, it probably has the same rubber detents as the ego's/geo's, being able to program the board without the grip off, a shaft 4 -2 piece barrel and being able to remove the trigger without pulling the grip frame is AWESOME. I hate getting hit in the trigger it's a pain to clean in the grip frame.

The Axe does have a hoseless design and is proven at this point however for what you get at 395, empire is in trouble with this competition unless they do a price drop or add their redline board at a similar price (460-500).
