Well it sounds like you made your choice if you don't want a noisy marker. A Reflex Rail is going to be quieter than an Etek 4 by a noticeable amount. The biggest question is, would you mind the efficiency drop between the two, since the Etek 4 is more than likely going to get more paint out.

lt is lighter but the grip is made of glass reinforced nylon (they use it to make the glock) and the am is a bit heavier and made from aluminum.

the glass reinforced nylon is kind of like plastic but way stronger

Some people don't mind the composite markers (like the Etha, Etek LT, PMR, etc) while others despise it. The main difference that I've noticed is that the composite can bend before snapping, while aluminum just dents. A friend of mine has an Etek 3 LT and it works just fine. The composite others him a bit on parts like the feedneck where there is always tension, but it works just the same.

I would personally prefer to use an all aluminum marker, but that is not to say that I would be upset if I had to use a marker with composite parts. Its all just personal opinion.

I hate to be the guy to toss in more markers but have you looked at the drone dx at all? It falls right in the price range and would be worth a look. Having said that, between the 2 you asked about I like poppets so its the etek for me.

I'd say it is a bit louder, but it really depends on how the Ego was tuned and what year Ego is was. For this, I'm going to assume it was an 11. The Ego 11 has an adjustable solenoid, allowing you to change the shot quality and other factors. This also can affect the noise of the marker. Another thing to consider is the bolt. An Ego is going to have a nicer bolt than the Etek. The Etek comes with a Cure 1 and the Ego 11 comes with a Cure 3+ I believe. The bolt can also affect the sound.

So while the Etek 4 will most likely be louder than an Ego, it should still be quieter than an Etek 3 since it comes with the Zick 2 kit.

Having owned both guns, my preference is for the etek 4, it is just one heck of a solid, reliable and efficient gun. Admittedly it is a loud marker but it's consitent effective performance make up for it. The reflex is also good, but I found to be more needy than the etek.

My bus has an etek. They sound so loud that are like helicopters. Get the drone fx and do your self a favor man. It's better in efficiency, it's prob the same weight, has a better everything and it's just a super smooth marker. The etek is horridly inaccurate same with the rail. Of I chose e tween the 2 it's gonna be the rail.

Poppet valve guns have more kick and it's gonna be louder. Now if that's ok then get it.

Spoolies are quieter and a little on the heavy side. But the etek feels better in the hands. Get the drone dx

I do not know where this inaccuracy is coming from because between the two my etek has always been very accurate and efficient, more so than my reflex.

I shot my etek3 LT over my DM for the longest time, it felt better in my hands, shot better, was more efficient. If you're playing speedball my opinion is who cares how loud it is I mean seriously your on bright colorful jerseys, on a bright green field with bright bunkers there is no hiding lol. Go for the etek you won't be disappointed
