I foresee possible different bodies from other companies being made for it.
for better aesthetics. aluminum and plastic.
it does have some neat features.
i literally read this while i'm salvaging macroline and fittings off THAT marker. gave me a good chuckle

That's a pretty big list of features at an "entry level" price point. Cannot wait to see this thing...

I think the Etha 2 is the genesis of a new design style for PE.
This is probably what PE macro-less designed should have been like from the start. I like the fact that they are testing this design with GRN at a cheap price point. Meaning that it can be easily replicated on metal. PE is shaping the future for high-end markers. turning them into just luxury perks rather than performance advantages. this reminds me of the car industry. amazing.. if Paintball as a sport wants to expand, this can truly be a good start.

the can industry analogy is actually a really neat way to look at it. i mean look at how far markers have come in the last 10 years. we're seeing quality of life improvements on "low end" markers that would have been a luxury not too long ago. look at classic cars and cars now. sure a 60something mustang is flashy as all hell and powerful, but look at all the capabilities a basic civic has. just about any car (or paintball gun in this analogy) you buy now functions to the point where you can get more or less the same results as the guy spending 5x as much.

you sir have made a fantastic analogy and i applaud you

At this point, if you can, try them. I loved how the Etha 2 shot, so smooth. Good luck on having great choices!

That's a LOT of value for $400. It'll probably become the best gun for the money on the market, ever. You're basically getting a gun that shoots like a Geo 3, for $400, with Etek/Ego reliability, all because of the Gamma Core.

There will not be an OLED upgrade, at least not from PE. They've already stated this clearly. Due to how the board is positioned and the grip, there just isn't any room for one.

They could if there was a space in the grip reserved for one. It would just need wiring to the board.

The body is supposed to be open sourced so maybe someone can figure out a way to integrate one right into the body

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
