06 ego upgrade question(s)

Been a member since 2007, stopped playing back in 2008. Finally went to Skirmish in Penn over the weekend and now I have the itch again. I have seen alot of mods and upgrades for the 06 ego. Any suggestions, i.e. board, barrel, bolt? Thanks in advance.

I have the following upgrades on my 06 Dark Ego- Cure3+ Shaft4 kit, Violent SL3 reg, Violent Scythe trigger and a Violent Thumbwheel, and it shoots well enough I can't justify selling my Ego for a newer one. The Cure4 is also nice, but I have used Evil paint with C3+ and had no issues. It's up to you really, but if you are going to upgrade I would stick with Eclipse parts.

I would just get a new barrel, the .693 stock 05/06 barrel is too big for todays paint.

Honestly I was looking for one awhile ago with no luck, but my 06 Dark is so smooth with the stock ram I didn't see the point of blowing the money. I have videos in my sig under the Warped Sportz collection.

I have a dart bolt, star frame and virtue board with a freak barrel and I love it. Got the cure 3 bolt and lost fps. Way more air efficient than my pmr.

thank you all for your responses. along with not playing for 4 years, my paintball terms have gone away also. I had to look up what a cure3 and 4 are, boost shafts are. Any good online stores anyone can recommend to purchase these items, ebay seems to be unfamiliar with most of this stuff. lol

yeah i notice with the field paint they made us play with rolled right out of the barrel. I did buy a cp that was .685 which was to tight. I know they made kits, (well used to make kits) that had a two piece barrel with several inserts. I still have the inserts but no barrel. any suggestions on that one?
