Looking to Upgrade

Hello everyone,

I am currently running an Etek 4 with a v3 rotor and 68/45 hpa. I think after a few months of playing speedball every weekend I am ready to upgrade my marker. I like the planet eclipse markers but am having some trouble making my mind up on which to get. I am looking between a geo 3.5 and a lv1. I have shot both and haven't noticed that much of a difference aside from the noticeable open and closed bolt setups. Looking for more info from people who have more experience than I. ty

All the markers you are looking at are open bolt.

Learn more about your marker and those that you are interested in first, then go from there.

A better marker does not make a better player.

Yeah, Geo and Ego both open bolt. HUGE difference between open/closed bolt and ENclosed bolt.

As mentioned, what is wrong with your current marker? I've been down that road of "well if I had X piece of equipment, my game would elevate." I've never shot an etek 4 so I am not sure if something is truly hindering the performance but really think about if it is worth it. I just got back into paintball a few weeks ago after a 5 year hiatus and this guy at a local field let me borrow his Luxe half the day. Man that gun shot nice but... I ended up piecing together a full ego 9 setup (dye roter and tank) and getting all of my supporting equipment (JT Flex goggles, NXE pack, pods, squeegee, etc) for $500 I could easily afford the Luxe or any other high dollar marker but for me and my level of experience it is better to spend that money on paint/playing time. If you are truly at that stage where you think you will get a performance advantage with a higher end marker and have the means to comfortably afford it, by all means go ahead. But, it sounds like you are not at that level yet since you have only been playing speedball a couple of months. I would invest in playing time and maybe doing some tweaks to your marker if you see fit.



Or get a lv1 lol
