It's going to be bad. It's going to have twice as many problems as the G4. DP said they want to build the worst marker possible this time

Seriously dude, wait till its actually released and people have had time to use it before asking questions that obviously are unanswerable right now.

What he said. I would wait for some reviews to pop up before actually buying one. We can predict what is going to happen all day but until you or some people actually use one you will never know.

I'd just get the etha, it's proven itself and eclipse customer service is great.

first of all, dont let a few opinions completely throw you away from the gun. I have heard plenty of people in love with their DP guns. g4s dont really have alot of problems and the ones, and for the few that do exist, they are easy fixes. last time i was at my local field i saw 5 g4s at they all loved them. They definitely DO NOT make bad products, most of the people that say they suck are probably the kind that would pay $200 more for a different color. the kind that purposely look for bad things and point them out individually then look at the gun as a whole. i say wait until reviews show up then ask more people on the forum what they think of it. also post this in the versus forum

I'd just give it some time. This is only DP's 2nd macroless marker and I haven't looked too much into their milsim marker (1st DP marker without macroline). Hopefully with them having tweaked a few things, the marker will perform well. I personally own a DP Threshold and I love it.

Don't shy away from DP because people out there say that they are bad markers. As long as you take care of it, then it will take care of you. And really the only problem that I've heard of with the G4 is bolt stick. Just replace the lube right out of the box and throw away that DP-40 crap (might as well be glue) and you should be good

When they leak, macro lines are a pain for 10 minutes it takes to change one. When the internals leak in a gun with no macro line you are in for loads of fun looking for the source. That being said no macro line guns seem to be the wave of the future.

Let me put it to ya this way. I've been playing paintball for 20 years. I've owned at least one of probabally 90% of mid to high end markers that have been produced since 2004.

The G4 is simple. Easy to program, even easier to maintian, and it's made from better materials out of the box. I am very hard of mid range guns(because i don't feel as bad if they break) my G4 has been dropped, kicked, and stuck in the ground like a tent stake, and it still works great.

where as the Etha, i can only say from teammates experiences, is built to be a throw away. feednecks snap off, trigger frames crack, and they leak all the f'n time.

Not saying that the G5 will be the same, but you can't hate on the G4 for a midrange.

i got a chance to completely take apart, program the board, and shoot the g5 today. i think DP did a really great job. dangerous power guns notoriously leak in the macro line... this doesn't have any. and as far as trying to find a leak in a gun with no marco line dp made it really really easy. 2 possible places it can leak: between the asa and grip frame, and between the frame and the body. both only rely on a single o-ring. the design is incredibly simple and seems pretty foolproof. dp actually did something great.

don't go bashing this gun without having some experience with it. i think its a great buy.

it boasts 25 bps ... i got to 23.3 on full auto tracking it with a virtue clock.
its pretty efficient 450 shots on a 48/3 with full auto (test tank)
really consistent +/- 8fps
fantastic trigger (i know that's a preference thing but i really like it)
...kicks like a mule

The etha is garbage, anyone that knows about the paintball marker, knows your better off throwing it at someone than shooting it....
Jump off the PE bandwagon, speak of what you know about..
I would take the G3 and the G4 over the etha everyday of the week, I would take a spyder over the etha... want to waste your money, buy the etha..
The only thing you need from anybodys CS, is to order parts, learn to work on your markers...

Don't listen to people that talk **** about DP markers.

Most of them go off of everybody's opinions and probably haven't owned one either. I LOVE my G3's and my G4. Only downside is the factory lube!

I love reading all the hate on DP. Do you guys think you're better players because you shoot guns that cost 3 times as much? LMFAO!

Ive owned a dp and pe marker i have the etek 2 and also had the g4. I liked it while it lasted but then there was a leak and everywhere i would take it to fix everyone told me that it was a gamble tryin to fix. I sold it bought a used etek2 and im happy with my purchase. G4 honestly shot very very smooth and quiet thats why i liked it. Planet eclipse erek is badass and needs vey little maintenance. I would look into the axe but feel like everyone own one and they say it is good, it really is but people who critize others are probably saying the truth, hating, or they are just fanboys and convincing people to buy what they have.
