BEST Etha upgrades?!

I'll be getting an etha soon and customizing it.. Pictures wil be up in a couple of weeks.

But on a serious note, what are the best upgrades you can put within the marker itself? Money isn't an issue. Thank you to all that contribute!

The only upgrades currently available for the etha is upgrading the barrel, you can change the asa to a Planet Eclipse asa with the t-rail system, and also violent just started to make triggers for it.

There aren't any bolt systems or anything like that?

Nope - no internal upgrades yet. Just purchase the marker and start playing - better to break it in and learn its ins and outs stock first. Who knows, you may find that it doesn't need any upgrades. I'm perfectly happy with mine.

If you go on warpedsportz you can buy a violent trigger, think that would be a great upgrade. Gonna pick one up for myself soon.

My bolts are on the way. I need to test a few springs to find the right settings.

magilla66 has perfected Level 1 in PbNation Pursuit
magilla66 has achieved Level 2 in PbNation Pursuit
So, to date, this is what everyone's listing, in order of what's currently available:

1. Barrels - always available as the first upgrade to any marker
2. ASA - PE POPS 2012
3. Eyes - Virtue probably makes a set that will work (try the Geo's?)
4. Triggers - Violent has their usual 2 delrin triggers, the S-blade, and Deuce
5. Feedneck - 09/10 Ego parts easily replace the GRN feedneck, although I'd expect the Ego11/Geo2.1 feedneck to fit
6. EMC kit - supposed to be coming out in JUNE!!!! where are they???
7. Bolts - Element is working on some, haven't heard of anyone else
8. Boards - none presently
9. Grips - none presently
10. Eye covers - none presently

Anything else that could possibly get an upgrade?

nonsense. no upgrades are needed. I own an etha. This thing shreds *****es all day long. I took a d3 player off the break easily and almost shot him again later in the day. You can't do that and say the gun needs improvement. Don't mess with perfection.

Thats so funny... you shot a D3 player so its a good gun...lol by that analogy not even Ions needed upgrades because i've shot d1 and d2 players with one...lol

__________________________________________________ _______

But on the real i have owned almost every gun out to date, and the etha could use you only a couple of UPGRADES..

Maybe a bolt or spring kit to lower the kick or raise the effiency
and an oled brd thats about it

the feedneck, trigger, asa and reg are all amazing

LOL. The marker shoots fine as is BUT....Im sure someone wants to make it shoot better. Or at least try to. I believe Lurker is also looking at a bolt for the Etha. I am particularly interested in seeing how a matched bolt and spring combo will perform in the Etha.

Also waiting to see who releases the first board for these markers. I would personally like a simple Tadao LED board.

Until we see reviews...anything out now except for a barrel is only an aftermarket part. Nothing else yet is an "upgrade". This takes time to compose a proper list.
