DP G5 or PE Etha

As the title says dp g5 or a PE etha, gonna use it for mostly rec play and some tourny play. I'd really like to get a etek4 but that would shoot this years paintball budget so I'm stuck choosing between those two.

Etha is ~$395. A drone dx is $429 from aggressive sports and is MUCH better than either.

It is all personal preference, there is really no "best". If you bring the Drone DX into this also, then I would recommend the etha, IMO only though, I have no clue what you want. I just really like the etha overall, I just dont like the feel in the hands of any of the macdev markers. My personal rank would be;

1) Etha
2) Drone
3) G5

The drone will be the smoothest, The Etha the most reliable and comfiest in the hands, G5 will be something (havent heard much about them yet)

the drone and the etha in the end have the same basic internal idea, a blow forward spool bolt type design.

The etha most reliable really? Why because it's PE? The drone has a similar design to the Geo (very few orings) and has the new practically bulletproof noid.

Between those two, etha. But there are much better guns in the price range.

Planet ecplipse really made a solid marker with the Etha. Its no 2011 ego or geo but it is well worth it at its price. The G5 however i am unsure of. Dangerous powers have a sketchy reputation of making very unreiable and difficult to maintain markers.
