07 Body looks so much nicer (IMO). 07 with Zick Kit > 08

From what i understand the 07 and 08 are very similar, 07 + zick= just about same as 08 minus 500.00.

It REALLY isn't the same if you add a zick....

Why do people luv to generalize so much?

How is that a generalization? I haven't shot an 08 and am going off what most ppl seem to say, I'm assuming you have both and have shot both?

I have owned both, took both apart and worked on them yes.

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.

Basically the same, but I would rather shoot a Ego8. Ego8s are a bit quieter out the box...

Is it true that the diff between 07 and 08 is much less than previous models such as 06 to 07? For some reason i thought the 07 and 08 were very similar all though not compatible as far as many parts go. I just picked up a used 07+zick for 650.00 so i'm a tad curious about it....didn't think the 08 was worth x2 the cash.

06-07 was a HUGE change, 07-08 is like the 05-06 but more changes if that makes sense?

Kinda...so do they always make it so the next years model is incompatible? Does the 08 kick less?

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.

QFT!!!

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.
