well if you have the money for an origin, I would get that over the 08 it's 100 bucks more and you get a sl barrel kit, but then again you can get a sl74 for 1,500 on nation if you look.

SL74.....barrel kit and LP & HP valves

Ego8....easier colors (better looking with the grey\green, brown\tan, black\green

Origin...overly bright odd colors...but has the barrel kit...but the loud colors (can't get past that)

...If I find a decent SL for like $900 ~ $1100 I'd buy it...but anything more and I'd rather keep my 08 with the 4.00 board and stepped (quieter) valve design.

....if you look good you can probably find 08's for under $1000
....SL's run in the $1100 to $1300 range...although one sold on eBay yesterday for $939....BNIB (I missed that auction by 7 minutes)

....both are decent prices. It's a tough choice. Is the barrel kit and extra valve feature worth it to you...if so get the SL

What does it matter which body looks cooler...which gun performs better...

Go with the 08 or SL74...

No...not worth the extra money (to most owners) for almost the same gun...not to many differences honestly...If you could get an 08 board for the sl74, you'd be set for life...

Lemme break the differences down:

SL-74:
HP & LP valve
SL barrel Kit
Different Milling (slightly lighter at 1.89 lbs)
2 QEV's
3.10 Board
Laser Eyes
Expansion Board

08 Ego:
QEV block
Different Milling (slightly heavier at 1.99)
Redesigned valve (to make gun quieter)
4.0 Board (invert display thats easier to see)

Both:
Sprin Style Reg
SL high-flow LPR piston
SL Style Trigger
Zick Kit


As for your question about the board...it has updated software and the LCD is an invert display, so it's easier to see.
