E-Tek puts me in a bad position

Ok..so right now i have a PM5 and im tired of the spool valve type gun i just can't stand all the bolt o-rings(always wind up with some type of leak). Don't get me wrong when set up right that thing can rip but.....anyway i was going to sell my PM5 and get an 06 EGO, but now that this E-Tek came out i don't know what to buy an EGO or an E-Tek. I've heard good things about the E-Tek and for the price its a good buy. Can't make up my mind. Help.

well if you have enough cash for an 06 EGO..then get one. It's a nicer gun. But if not, go with the ETEK..it does the same job...minus some of the flashy stuff like the lcd screen and QEVs.

Like was stated above. Both guns are going to be perform amazing. However if you have the money and are willing to spend it on the 06 Ego than do it. If you want to save some money go with the Etek. Im sure you'll be happy with either.

Right now Im in the same situation. I have the 05 Proto in my Sig and I am wondering if that is worth leaving for the E-TEK.

Ditto,

MY favorite gun in the world is a timtim, but they're heavy and the reg wobbles.

So I wanted a lighter timtim minus the wobbling reg = ego.

That all depends; do you want a spool-valve type marker (PM6/Shocker) or an open bolt (Etek). Personally i dont like a lot of bolt orings but spool-valve guns do shoot very nice when they are properly taken care of. Ego's are just that much easier to take care of though. I'd say Etek as i didnt have too much luck with a Shocker over the course of 3 months.

I'm somewhat facing a similar dilemma. I'm getting the gun-whoring feeling again, and I was hoping the price of the ego6 would go down near the end of the year, but with the etek, the 06 will retain its price. Crafty guys at PE man...

I also just came from a PM5. I sold it then picked up a LNIB Platinum 05 Ego off B/S/T forums.
