Ego 11 over SLS?

I am thinking about getting a newer Ego. I have been looking at the SLS and Ego 11 while also drooling over the CSL. Are the differences between the SLS and the Ego 11 enough to choose the 11 over the SLS?

Are you planning on buying the 11 new? If so the warranty with PE's quality customer service is almost enough alone to justify the extra money. With the SLS you do get all the extra bells and whistles with the SL barrel kit, 2 triggers and HP and LP valves, while with the 11 you get the adjustable solenoid, different ergonomics, angled reg collar and pops asa. It's really a matter of personal preference and budget, but unfortunately I can't tell you which is neccesarily better as I don't own either of them. I do know that you will be more then happy with either you choose to purchase as they are both high quality markers from Eclipse! I would go to your local pro shop and ask to see an Ego11 and see how it feels and possibly see if you can shoot one at your field.

Not sure if I would buy new. PE does have amazing customer service. So that would be a plus if I bought new. I wouldn't be able to hold an 11 as no one has one and shop doesn't carry them. I do have a 09 so I already have the feel for an Ego. Just thinking of maybe getting something new. I'll be going to Galveston so I should be able to get my hands on one there. Just wanting to figure out if the performance difference between the 2 is enough to choose one over the other.

Well I can't help you out there since I've owned my 06 Dark Ego, but I would say the ability to adjust the solenoid on the 11 is a big advantage, it's just whether you are willing to spend the extra money for it. Honestly any Ego will perform great as long as it has been taken care of properly, my 06 Dark shoots amazingly smooth for an older Ego and more then does its job for playing rec ball and the ocasional tourney. The SLS may hold its value slightly better since it's more limited and has the besales parts, but since the 11 is the last anually released Ego it should hold its value pretty well also. Although that shouldn't matter too much as paintball markers are not investments. Personally I would go with the Dark edition Ego11 with a matching Boost kit, but that's just me.

Having owned both the SLS and CSL I have a good feel of the differences between the two.

You can not go wrong with either. Both shoot awesome and both are very reliable and very efficient.
There is nothing like new and having the knowledge that while in warranty the new marker will be taken care of by PE if there are any defects/issues from them etc.
The adjustable solenoid is pretty awesome, but it's not the end all be all of the Ego. It's a great feature and does make it a bit more smooth.

If you are on a budget and will stretch it to where you'd have to play less or give up something to move up to the 11 I'd say stick with the SLS as you won't have to spring for extra to get the barrel kit and eportal and any extras you may want.
If it's not an issue, spring for the 11.

If I had to decide between an SLS or an Ego 11, I'd go for the Ego 11. It feels better in your hands, imo.

Thanks for the replies guys. Seems like the 11 is the way to go. Think I will go ahead and buy new or maybe a CSL if I find a good deal. I have always kinda wanted to own a SL.

Buying a CSL used would be good, you could get one for just a little more then a new 11. I understand wanting to own a SL, I've always wanted a Dark SL74 since it came out, and I'm determined to get one along with a 05 Mantis.

The 11 shoots smoother than all previous Egos, including previous SL models. So if I was deciding between an SLS and Ego11, I'd go with the 11.

No way, I call shens on a SLS shooting better than a tuned 11. Adjustable noid > all but CSL.

My two cents: I have a thistle SLS and my buddy has a 11. We have both shot each others guns and we both like them equally. I like the SL for the extra stuff you get and the deep milling on it and the extra backs. To me its really just a preference of looks and feel of the gun in your hand. (not that they feel very different at all) To me they have exactly the same shot feel.
