wtf that supposed to mean...
they are a timmi they can at least hit 25
b/c a timmi can hit around or above 25 and they dont have QEV's
and all a e-tec is is a timmi w/o-QEV's
get the picture.!.!..

1. Etek has no QEVs

2. Its lighter than the 06 according to PEs chart

3. Stopping posting your prices, not only can you get your dealer in trouble you also help at killing resale b/c kids read that price and use it when trying to buy a gun off the nation.

-Guys its really up to those of you who buy this gun to keep resale up. So far Egos have one of the best resale values on the market, if you dont take those crappy lowballs when your getting rid of the gun it will keep resale very high and we all profit (even PL and reg ego owners).

In other words dont post your team discount prices and sell for half price

wrong. I PM'ed Jack Wood about this as I was curious myself, and heres his reply when i asked if it would outshoot the fastest loaders (halos, reloaders, and VLocity):

Hi

"The answer is yes, it is just as fast as pretty much any other marker out there. The lack of QEVs do slow it a little compared to the 06, but the limiting factor is still the loader, and the user."

i dont see why people are so into the etek personally. The 06 is a better gun. The 05 is a better gun, and goes around the same price. so why not take a better gun for the same price?

Well i think its all personal preference. Some people prefer buying a NIB gun (Etek) over a used gun (05 Ego). Essentially the Etek, 05 Ego and 06 Ego all shoot the same, there are only miniscule differences. The 05 and 06 basically have more "bells and whistles" than the Etek, they dont really perform any better.

And some prefer the milling of the etek over the 05/06

I've heard good things about the E-Tek and for the price its a good buy. Can't make up my mind. Help.
hey man, dont let it get to u, just wait till the etek will come out, shoot it, shoot an 06 ego, and see which u like...if u dont like both, try and fix ur proto

go for an 05...

im sure the gun will be super duper... but you never know with first gen. runs.... wait and let other people buy and shoot and break and then youll have something a little more substantial to base your decision, rather than hype....

and who cares if it cant hit 25? YOU cant hit 25... so whats the point
