Hmm, have you looked at any other guns?

I'm only going to tell you once. Stop trying to make sense. Bad Sno. Bad.







So you want to upgrade from a Mini to an Etha? I can't think of a reason to do so.

You have a gun, now go play with it unless it is explicitly giving you problems.

what he said ^
There's nothing wrong with a mini. Its a good gun. Im assuming you play rec ball? If so, then theres no real need to upgrade to an etha. Spend the money on other stuff like maybe a barrel kit, or a better hopper, or a carbon fiber tank if you dont already have these things. Or maybe spend the money on a better mask or pod pack. Or just upgrade you mini with new parts etc. ect. ! Best of all, use the money for paint and admission at your field.

Like they all said. But if you need an upgrade get an etek much better and it will last you a while.

If you play recball, no need to upgrade. And even going from a mini to an etha is not much of an upgrade at all.

I agree with everyone and so should you.

Maybe if you dislike the feel of the mini due to its size and feel when shooting, I suggest trying this out:

1. BOSS XSV/Infamous Bolt.

2. Nummech Foregrip Extender.


Should run around $50 at the end of the day, but it will make the gun smoother, quieter, more consistent, more efficient and a bit more ergonomic on top of it all.

I use the Etha and even though I absolutely love it, it won't really be a huge improvement upon what you already have. You already have a great marker, so I would just look at other gear to improve, such as your tank, hopper, or pod pack. Unless you are willing to go over $600 or $700, you're not gonna see much change from what you already have. The Mini is a great marker.

as stated, you wont really see that much of an improvement with the etha, its a nice gun but if your looking to spend $400 try looking at a used 08 high end marker. you could probably sell the mini for $200-$250 and thend youd have 6-700 for a new marker. i havent checked the bst lately but that should give you enough to buy something relatively new.

The Etha is a great gun and is built like a tank. Not the smoothest shooter in the world but I like it. I think I would take it over the Mini.

I do agree with this though. Try to find a nice used gun that is better than both the Etha and the Mini.
