alright let me set this straight... Egos are NOT faster than Quests. The quests selenoid is capped at 24 and trust me. YOU WILL NOT OVERSHOOT 24 BPS LEGALLY. Even with ramp your pushing your hopper to the limit to shoot 24 bps.
ok woah, erm egos are faster... obtainable speed and how fast it can phisically go are different, thats like saying a ferrari and a mazda miata go the same speed in a 55 mph zone, but we all know the ferrari is a ton faster =0. 24 cps as opposed to a 36+ cps.
i guess your arguing the fact that you just wont shoot that fast, which is most likely true.
as for the trigger of both, quest by far.. omg the ego one is wierd, im just used to a microswitch, but i guess if you like a smoother pull the optical is the way to go, i like it semi snappy. like a mouse click
