ego and etek questions

i need to decide between these two markers. i have two offers. Etek Ego for $500 or 06 Ego for $650. both are in spotless condition and i do not know what upgrades are in either. i know the 06 Ego is owned by a Div. 2 pro.

I have the etek, i have a virtue board and a violent trigger setup. The etek is a very fast, reliable gun, but put out the extra 150 and get the 06. I love my gun but when the difference in price is that little i have to tell you to go for it, the 06 is faster and is the best bang for your buck. You really couldnt go wrong either way, but if i were in your position i would take the 06

i will definately ask the guys and see what i can find about eliminating or reducing the kick. i didnt realize the etek didnt have the lcd screen. that really makes the decision harder, i want the 06 but it would be nice to have a good marker sooner. it would take me another month to round up $150.

Buy an 05 ego with 1.06 programming and slap a ti rammer in it and be done with it. I just finished a side by side comparison with my 05 ego and my 05 framed etek with the same programming, went through and got all the settings setup correctly to shoot right and consistent and the 05 outshoots the etek side by side. Not that the etek is bad but for the price you can buy the 05's save your money.

im happy with the 05's as well. at this point i am just trying to get my marker as fast as i can. i dont want a piece but i would rather buy the etek if it means i can play a month earlier. thanks for the advice.

if you get an ego unless its 07 you will probably end up upgrading the board anyway, so i wouldnt really factor the LCD screen into your decision too much.

etek and ego6 dont feel that different, but the ego6 definitely feels a little nicer.

as for the money $650 is not a great deal for an 06. i bought an 06 with a cure bolt for $500 about 4 months ago.

so what if it is owned by a D2 pro....this could mean yes, maybe it is in better working order and will shoot more properly........but could also mean it has taken way mroe of a beating than a gun owned by a rec-baller, etc.

eteks shoot up to the low 20's........jsut because ramping is capped at 15 means nothing.......semi can be uncapped and shoot faster than any human can reach.

yeah, i didnt think about the d2 pro abusing the marker. and i have been looking around at the egos. i am trying to find either for under $500. basically it is whichever i find first that looks and works good. so, i can upgrade the board to one that uses the screen? i prefer the ease of understanding the ego campared to the etek. i know it isnt complicated but it is just easier to look at the screen. by the way? ego's are cocker threaded right? and what upgrades do you suggest, be specific. i am looking for brands and specs. thanks.

look less for an etek priced low and just start offering.......the good deals NEVER come to you, you must search and you will find a good price.

thats where my problem lies. i dont have the cash at the moment but my buddy is willing to buy it. i am not goin to make offers with his money. i only have $350 right now to pay him so unless i can get an ego (anything) for that price i have to look for prices and send them to him. he will haggle the price cause he is buying. thanks though.

both the etek and 06 have the same capbillities it might just take a bit more cash to get the etek runing at the same speed as the ego... personally i prefer the eteks over the egos

Hey, becareful. You posted in an Eteck forum. This mite get closed. NE ways, I'd go with the Eteck. Personally, I think they are more acurate, and look cooler.
