The Etek 4 is a great marker. Think half-way between Ego9 and Ego10. You dont get an OLED board, but the settings arent that difficult to mess with. It has a good barrel, good cure bolt, a great reg and easy on/off asa. As usual with the ETEK line though, it is as loud as a cannon. And I have never been a fan of PE's finger detents. They seem to snap way to often.

The FX is a decent marker. If it were stock, I would tell you to stay away and go with the ETEK. However, the HUSH bolt and LAW ram, quiet it down a good bit. The RAM will soften the shot and ping. The switchblade trigger is nice, but a little bulky to me. The reg is easy to work on and the RAPS Asa is my favorite asa in the industry right now. The OLED board will take a bit to figure out the programming, but it has a ton of modes you can mess with.

Final Judgement (including the mods to the FX):
Trigger - ETEK
Barrel - ETEK
Bolt - FX
RAM - FX
Board - DRAW (imo)
Reg - ETEK
ASA - FX
Noise - FX (simply because of the hush bolt and LAW ram)
Kick -EQUAL


REMEMBER!!! This is all my own personal opinion. Your best bet is to find anyone that may have the 2 markers near you and shoot them for yourself.

Etek- as it is less likely to have problems. I own a do f8 and one of my teammates last season had a fx, it did not make it through the season it kept having problems and the bolt snapped in half. Another team mate had an etek, no problems asll season.

He doesnt have to worry about the bolt though because he has the HUSH upgrade. I had one in all of my FX's and never had any issues. I have owned 3 FX's and never had problems with any of them actually.

As Dedloc said it was all his personal opinions and thats what markers really are is a personal preference and what you prefer and how it feels. The best way you could compare the two is if you know someone at your field who has one of each and be able to play with both for a day or so that way you know how both shoot and feel in your hands. That being said its mostly up to you but I would recommend the ETEK over the FX.

I would go with Etek. Bullet proof reliable. PE has proven it over and over again. Zick 2 so kit isn't too bad loud yes but so are most all poppits. I'm not saying the FX is reliable but the Etek will win every time in that category. And don't you want a gun you can actually shoot then having it break?
