This would suck

Well, I'm hyped up to sell my speed, and buying one of these. BUT, Is it me, or will everyone and their mothers start buying this, with such a low price? What do you guys think?

Well i dont think so. Everyone and their mothers own shockers and proto's. But i think nerves are the new "ion" to say scence they arnt being produced anymore and are friggen cheap. So maybe but there wont be 10000000 newbs buying them. just their mothers

im srry but i would jus like to ask, why does it matter if people are buying it? If people are buying it, that should mean its a good gun. If your worried about the re-sale value, then upgrade it, and it wont be like an ion it is $550 more. Also it is a ego, who doesnt want an ego!!

I think there will be many people wanting to try/get one once they come out, so if u really want to you go could prolly trade for a pm6 or whatever around the same price range easily, also i agree with darkside, who doesnt want an EGO, thats why we are all here looking at the etek isnt it?

I think what people are worried about is that a bunch of newbies are gonna buy it and everybody and their mama will have one. They are worried it will become the next ion, even though it is nothing like an ion.

I think of it this way. If it feels good in your hands and you know how it works and how to actuay play, then buy it. Its is your money, not mommy and daddys' money, like the "newbs" you speak of.

most newbs got in with the ion/proto crazes, a couple hundred or so newbs will get the etek but i think the bulk of the new etek buyers will know how it'l actually work and how to actually play some good speedball.

egos are just a fad like shockers and protos. everyone around here used protos up until last year now everyones using shockers and egos. i went to a local young gunz tourny i thought it was going to be ions and a few highends. it turned out to be alot of highends and a few ions.

Personally I think its stupid to spend ANY ammount of money on first-line productions. There is ALWAYS problems they overlook with EVERYTHING ever made, except for soap.

But seriously..... Think about it...

Ego's kept there re-sale because of their "fad". They are what people wanted BECAUSE they had the best resale. They still do. Egos in general. Everyone wanted them, because everyone wanted them. Im not trying to sound like confusious here but..... Ya it pretty much says it all.

Plus, I love timmies, shockers, and DM's. Never cared for the proto lineup.

My 2-Cents.

glazed donuts: seriously... the ego is known as to many as THE best pb gun there is, because it's reliable, efficient, fast, light, sexy, not much kick... not saying it is the best but i think it beats timmy's and shockers by a lot, and is slightly better/ tied with the DM line (in my eyes)...

True, I know that though. But personal preference beats any competition. If you love shockers, the you love shockers.... Who cares about the features of the ego.

Don't get me wrong, I give PE 2 thumbs up for there origionality and overall everything on the ego. Def a top gun without a doubt.

So many unique features. How light it is, accurate, easy maintanence, efficient, resale value. Personaly I think the best feature was the offset feedneck. Genious. Simple but effective. Comes stock with break beam eyes. I give it a 10 for sure, but even tho I give it a 10, I would rather shoot a timmy over it. Just for personal preference. Im a shocker fan all the way. Even though I have an ego right now....... But I traded it for a Dynasty with ups and 200 cashmoney. I might get an ego again sometime. They weren't exactly my cup of tea although they are almost a perfect gun. Sounds wierd but aren't we all?

Personal preference beats any competition though, just my biased opinions. Thats all these forums are, people stating there opinions and telling the occasional kid to kill themselves..... <-- Not cool

that is the stupidest reason for not buying a gun..

It will be a kick *** gun. whats the problem?


want something unique? get a cocker and get it HB'ed, custom milled, mq'ed and whatnot

It's true, buying a gun cause other people have it is sometimes a good sign... like maybe because it's good..... That's why people have it......... Hint Hint?.... You think your going to get a gun that no1 else has? Just quit if you think that. Sorry man.....

Yeah, but, Its never fun to see 3-4 kids on the field with the same gun as you. I'm picky, get used to it. Would it be worth it for me to just buy an 06 ego?
