ETek=BOUNCE?

I have not personally shot the ETek so...
I have a question for the people who own one or have shot one with paint.

I was wondering if the ETek bounces a lot?
Especially for the fact that it has a microswitch. You can adjust debounce and all but does it have more of a tendency to bounce with the microswitch and stock board?

Please post only if you have 1st hand knowledge of this.

A microswitch only bounces if you want it to...I'm sure P.E. has mechanical bounce settings...In fact if you read the manual then you really wouldn't be asking this question.

When he speaks of bouncing he means that the kick of the gun forces the trigger to hit the micro switch. Causing unwanted shots.

1st hand knowledge of a GUN bouncing? Yea ~ I threw a 98 custom at my brother a few years ago and I'm almost 99% sure the gun, board and all it's "debounce" bounced off of him and abruptly hit the ground.
wow dont flame him because you have no idea what he is talking about

Yeah guys, lets not turn this into a flame filled forum.

I have more experience with matrixes but have owned my 06 Pevs ego for about 6 months and love it. I also acquired a G4H recently. Both are tuned by myself and they rip like no other PB Gats I have owned.

Basically, the question I had was: Does the ETek have more of a tendency to bounce than say the 06 Ego?
Using the same or similar settings and stock boards.

I have seen several posts by people who have shot the ETek so I know you are out there.

its possible to eliminate bounce useing the de-bounce settings......i set one up yesterday to use this weekend and after around 50/60 shots pulling the trigger very slowly trying my best to get it to bounce i failed completely with the stock debounce setting.

More than likely it will bounce as much or as less as any other marker with a mechanical switch, it just depends on how you set it up.

Optical is when there is a small beam that gets "broken" by a prong on the trigger and when the optical beam is broken the gun fires. Micro-switch is when there is an actual switch that is pressed by the prong on the trigger.
