I've got an AM, and it's nice, but the LT is just as good. You'd be fine saving the cash. they're VERY low maintenance, Egos/eteks are great that way.

It's fine stock, just need a barrel kit.

I have an AM and love it. I shot an Ego 10 last year and downgraded for this season because I won't play as much. I haven't seen a difference, but I also am looking to shoot alot of paint as fast and consistent as I can with a reliable gun. Only thing I did to mine was an new barrel, a thumbwheel on the feedneck, and the new POPS on/off.

Only thing I have heard about the AXE is that, I believe, it's capped at 15 BPS. Most people don't care but if you can hit higher than 15 BPS, then you may want to look at something else or grab a new board.

I've had my AM for a few months now an love it. got the pootified Cure3+ bolt and a freak barrel kit and love it. will probably get the zick 2 just because I want to but it doesn't need it. overall for the price the LT or AM are very good markers

Stock should be just fine, though I have the Cure3+ and the Zick2

I haven't chopped a single ball from the bolt yet. The Zick2 didn't seem to do much for me.

If anything, I'd get the Emmortal Board just for bragging with some buddies that have Tippmanns and Spyders still.

I just showed them what 21BPS looks like haha -- and the fact that not 1 chopped

Thanks for the input guys. I really appreciate it. What type of hopper do you reccomend, or does it even matter.

I have the option to buy the etek AM for 580$, the etek LT for420$, or the AXE for 420$. I'm just not sure which to get.

I like the feel of the ETEK's more than the rail's

Both throw paint equally well. I find the ETEK easier to maintain though

no not really at all. etek 1 runs about 150 200 mini funs 200 250 and its way newer. Save up for a etek 3. Mini shoots better than a etek 1 and 2

I deffinatley agree Etek all the way although this is a biased place to post this q lol

The main issue with the mini is that you have to go into the board to change the settings

vs threads arn't allowed. as you are posting in the etek forum, obviously people are going to tell you they like the etek. it really comes down to personal preference. shoot both if you can, and make your decision from there.

with that being said, the etek should be a much more reliable marker. in my experience, people either really like their mini, or hate it. minis use/used new tech, and as such there can be issues. i am also really not a fan of macroless markers. just another thing that can and will break, usually at the worse time.

the etek 3 uses proven tech from the ego line and provides it at a price that is easily obtainable. PE markers are also extremely easy to work on for routine matinence. you also get the fantastic PE customer support, should you ever need it.

I bought a etek3 because i felt it was a better gun then everything else in that price range.

I bought it for woodball but after trying it on a speedball field i was really impress on how it performed.

Mini is not a bad marker thought. Probably turn myself to an Axe if i had the choice over the mini. But i would never trade my etek3 for an Axe.

Planet eclipse give you a mega parts kit with every etek3... you will probably never need to buy orings for it....well not for a few years at least !

but that all depends if you are talking about an etek 1-2 or 3....
and what version of the mini because the first few version of the mini did have issues.


That is my personnal opignion....

Even a stock Etek1 beats out a mini IMO.
