Thats why you can buy CCU kits and stuff, so you can make it your own gun.

If you're worried about looking like a nub out on the field because you've bought a downgraded ego.. forget about it. The gun is not plastic and it's well over $200 like the ion. You don't see people giving Shocker and Proto users hell for the gun they use. The Etek is in the same category... hell, we've all seen Ion players that are better than one's with DM6's. A player makes his gun, not the other way around. I have way more respect for an aggressive Ion owner than a guy with an expensive gun chillin' at the back. The Etek will shoot hella fast & has all/most of the benefits of the 06 Ego's... and not to mention $400+- cheaper. What else is there to think about?

I really wouldn't consider anything over 600 dollars to be cheap. Cheap is under 250. The Ion is a solid gun, however to get mine to what I want it to be, I will likely have to put at least another 200 into it, so I will likely end up buying an ETek. People will always have the same thing you have, get over it

I am impressed with this. I don't see how you are worried about 750 being cheap. I mean DM4's are going for 750, and people still wont buy them. Timmies are going for 750,and some people still won't buy them. I don't think you have to be worried about "a lot " of people buying this marker. yes there will be people that have it, but for the price, people will just end up getting something cheaper. There are people that are just looking to get their "first" high end marker,and they don't want to save up forever and a day. There is no need to worry about "noobs" using the etek. and NO I do not think it will be the next ion...wayyy too expensive to be the next ion.

btw, if you pre order, im sure when it does hit, you can profit if you dont like it, Hell you could probabally sell it at such a higher price, you could virtually afford a cheep nib 06.

You don't think that a bunch of kids have 06 egos?

sorry kid but no mattter what gun u buy there will always be someone who owns the exact same thing. ppl bought ions bcz they were the best gun for the price, the etek is the best gun for the price, but also 3 times the price. eteks will be the EXACT same deal as a proto, youll see just as many,they will sell just as many, and be just as popular, when the proto came out, did everybody and the mother buy one? no. bcz theres still the ion, and there will always be an ion type gun to get newbies money.

What is strange to me is how people think it will become the next Ion. It still 750$, its not like the PM6 has turned into an Ion. Here is how I think of it, PE did the same thing that Dye did. They make a gun of high quality parts and manufacturing but took away the main "bling bling" and other such things Ie: LCD or the UL Frame. They have made the people who dont want to spend 1000$+ a gun that is 750$(E Tek) and the 725$(PM6) something that can still compete and have high preformance without the fancy upgrades.
remember the name

it will be the next proto not the next ion. you can buy almost 4 ions for the price of one of these, dont worry about it becoming the next ion.
Yup, a 2k5'er.

i understand what hes saying. The reason i got an ego was because at that time they were somewhat rare ( at least where i live ) because everyone had a shocker or a proto and then within the next year they came out with sl66's, 06s, mantis, pevs, nexus, xsv, dark, eteks etc.. So now everyone ends up having egos, granted they may not look the same with ccu kits and all but its still an ego. I don't want a gun that everyone else has because then yours doesn't feel original and you lose interest in it.

Trust me, from owning an 05 speed and an ego-take the ego.

Its about half the width, half the weight, and sooo much easier to maintain. Both guns rip, but the ego is much better.

If you people are so anal about owning a gun that no one else has... i have an idea..


Then you'll have 1 of a kind. =)

For those that say its going to be the next ion... i'm sorry, but if a 12yr old kid can afford a 750 dollar gun... then i give it to him... he can play with it. Who the hell cares? But put it this way... if you do have the etek and it is going to be the next ion.... at least if you're not a kid, you can always tell the 12yr old to go buy a car. Doubt he/she can afford that nor can they drive legally... now does that make you feel better ?

From the way it seems... the people who ARe complaining ARE the little kids because only silly kids care about what everyone else has.

But I like my original idea though... go build a gun yourself if you want something that NO ONE ELSE has.

PLus I agree with some previous posters.... WHO needs a 1200 gat to shoot 15bps ? when an ION can do just that much. I am pretty sure I can pick up an ion and whoop half of your butts with shockers, dms, egos, etc. and want to know why??? I've been playing for 8 years. The markers only carry you so far little ones.. the rest is your intelligence and skills. Sometimes... we wonder why god gave us a brain. =)

see this is also my dilemma. (sp?)

if everyone buysd them they wont be so valuable obviously. and if someone PE screws up which is highly unlikely the already low starting price will drop badly. Plus as always resale goes down. And us gun whores thrive in this market.

then again the odds of PE making a bad marker are about the same as xsv using squirt guns...

terrible analogy i know.
