I played with it all night and liked it but wasent really so impressed by it granted its not broken in. comparing the price and preformance to the g3 (reliability aside) I didnt think it was so great. the last game he hands me his ego 10 w/ stiffi wich is broken in and oh my god what a difference I thought but he said to me after the game that when he grabbed the etek he thought it felt faster. these guns are both his so hes not biased now is it in my head that I picked up a more expensive gun and it shot soo much better. Any thought opinions etc. also if anyone can recomend any other guns I would appreciate it . Im also thinkin of looking at a sl8r now but honestly I dont play so often that I need to spend big money cause I dont have it but I want the best. do I stay g3/ etek 3 /ego if so what year/ or sl8r or in that family .Thanks for any feedback
(Excuse my language) **** the G3. Don't buy it. End of Story.

Etek 2 vs Etek 3am

Much of a difference? Is the Etek 2 all metal? or more like the LT?

The etek2 is all metal.

Please refer to the two "Etek Truth" threads in the stickies for more details and comparisons.

If you had a donkey and I had a rooster, and your donkey ate the feet off my rooster, then technically you would have 2 feet of my cock in your ***.

The four most important things in a marker ( IMO ) and the Etek wins over the G3 in all of those. The appearance of the G3 is "cheaper", Etek has a better board ( unless you like dipswitches...). The good things with the G3 would be weight, and fast dissasembly. You'll get balls flying with it, but the Etek2 does it better The G3 is a spoolie, so it will and does require more maintainance than the Etek, wich is very userfriendly what comes to maintainance.

Well, I wouldn't say outdo or outperform. It might do well, but it is
still a mid-end spoolie ( even tough pimped out ) against a mid-end poppit. I would still take the Etek2 over the G3. You probably won't notice any difference in accuracy, or in rate of fire (most fields and tournaments have rof limits anyways), but still, the Etek is more userfriendly. The G3 is a little more quiet than the Etek, but the Etek still requires less maintainance, and is still more reliable than the G3, and more efficiant. Somebody might have a different opinion, but this is what I think of these two. It's pretty much up to what you want from the marker. My preference has been stated allready, and I've tried both these markers (not such a pimped G3, but it still is a G3). And you can't do much more to the G3, but for the Etek2 you can get a Cure2 or 3, and a Zick-kit, wich will make it performance a little better.

Oh, and since you allready have the Etek2, and knows how it performs, why take the risk. My opinion (if I didn't make it clear enough allready ) would be to stay with the Etek2.

Over and out.

Well...kinda yes, and kinda no. The Ego08 is smoother in every way, but they are quite on the same line what becomes liabilaty. The Ego is lighter and a little smoother, but it has qev's, that eventually will give up on you. It's all up to preferences. I played last season with my Etek2, even if I had a brand new Ego9 with me all the time. The Etek2 just felt better at the time
