Why in hell would you do something like that? You'd be giving it up for something that's heavier, less efficient, and just...new...lol....hey w/e floats your boat I say...All I know is that I'm not selling my '05 for the lastest..and not necesarily the greatest cause my '05 is better anyway...as for efficiency...it's a big deal down around here when you have 25 or so team trying to fill up their tanks all at once...lol

Just to clarify, the ETek is showing ZERO negative effect on efficiency.

Why the Hell ANYONE would think QEVs equate to better efficiency I have NO idea.

For the Record: QEVs do not effect efficiency.

as said by acid brainwash
My fault I meet efficency wise not speed. If you need those extra 20 balls but you dont have the air thats going to be the difference from winning or losing.

^ its not more, its just canadian prices. do the math, it works out to about $750 US.

and do clarify, badlands has 3 colours listed. black, jungle (black and green), and urban. no one has seen them yet, nicky T said they will have more pics later

Stop being so lazy any one can figure out the weight:

Etek: 2.47 lb, lbs = 1120.3731539 grams or 1.12 KG
Ego6: Off the P.E. website "STATS:Weight: 966g; Ego 6, Eclipse On/off and regulators.
1108g Inc. Shaft Solo Barrel"
The e*tek ego is only 12.4 grams heavier...12.4 gram = 0.027337321 lb, lbs

I don't think I have to respond to that unless you plan on shoot well above 20 bps which Im sure the E*tek ego can as I cycled my old 05 ego at 26 with paint back when you could make the .17 board go true f/a and I know vavles aren't ever going to be the slowest piece on the gun so I would think there wouldn't be any effect going from qev's to just a plane high flow barb heck timmy's have been shooting fast with out qev's for ages.

Well I think if you are going to have an "Official Etek Thread" you should at least collect together all the info, with prices and pictures and edit it all into the first post. Otherwise this is just another discussion thread, like the other 4........
