I've played paintball for a number of years and I've owned a few electros in my time, but this is my first PE marker. Any tips, tricks, or advice you'd care to share to a PE newbie?

I get the impression it already comes with a few features (Zick kit, Cure bolt) and besides for a smaller diameter barrel, is there any upgrades that are worth it? Trigger? Board?

Barrel is about it. I'd leave the rest alone. Oil the ram each time you play. Service the regulators twice a season maybe.......and have fun.

Manged to find a Shaft 3 barrel kit for it for a decent price. Got Virtue laser eyes, but only because the stock eyes were corroded all to hell (This is what happens when you never take the eye covers off!), and them for cheaper than stock.

Not a fan of how the trigger feels right now, but still got to make some adjustments. Been thinking of one of the Violent Scythe triggers.

Some people don't like the stock trigger. I've always though it was quite nice once adjusted to my taste. It's up to you though. Sounds like you're ready to rock either way.

Oh, I hope you have a hopper with adjustable stack tension. The LPR on the etek runs a bit high so a hopper that doesn't push down too hard on the ball stack is always a nice bonus.
