People luv to say "They are the same with a Zick Kit...", and in all reality they aren't. Ego8 has a whole new QEV system, new valve system, reg, board, among other things.
There are too many things to take in to consideration to just say "add a Zick and they are the same"
My opinion is this:
The 07 is one of the sweetest guns ever made. If you can get one for $700 and that is all the money you have and you dont want to spend more money. DO IT!! you will not be left wanting.
The SL74 is incredible! The price has dropped and it is a smooth shooting and extremely light gun. WOW sweet gun by anyones standards.
The 08 is something that the 07 and the SL74 is not and can not be. The 08 has the Q-Block that improves performance and also made it so that they could move the grip frame up in to the body more (this is my favorite feature by far). The gun fits so low in your hand it is sick.
There are countless other features that I could name off but what is comes down to is are the additional features worth extra money for YOU. In my opinion if we are talking about what is the better gun. The 08 is a better gun than the 07 and the SL74. I have (have meaning I still have and still use) all 3 of these markers and I shoot my 08 over ALL markers.
