Yeah, my friend said a droid is a beast, but better than an ego8?

Is this your first marker?

If so, I recommend something a bit lower since you probably will not need something that high up.

Look into something from Dangerous Power or another company like that. You honestly do not need something like an EGO 08, Vice, DM9 or anything like that if you are just starting out.

Buy a nice tank, nice mask, good reliable hopper, then the rest can be put towards a marker.

But in reality it is all personal preference. Go out try some markers, don't go on price because price means nothing especially when you can get a marker for half of an EGO that shoots just as good.

All of them are good at that point. Just depends on what you think looks cool, and how much maintenance you want to deal with, if you like spools or poppits.
and also of that $1000 budget...is that for marker alone..or marker and upgrades. etc. Cus seriously for $750+ you get a gun that shoots fast, accurate, reliable, etc, etc, etc....it all just depends on preference at that point.

DM8s are even in your price range right now too (run for around $850-1000 NEW). Anyway it's all on preference now. But again with a Droid, DM8, Ego, Vice...you can't really go wrong.

Hmm, gee thanks alot guys for all your input. This is indeed my first high end marker. I havent played for a year or so, but I absolutly love it. Time to put the xbox 360 controller down, stop cod4, and play for real But yeah, I want to start out with one of the best markers avaiable, just goes with my personality, a perfectionist lols.
Im pretty much in between a ego8 and a dm8.. The places Ive called say that the ego8 is better, but idk!

They say that because they are fanboys, plain and simple.

I have played for 9 years now and ever since the EGO came out that is all you hear about, and honestly they shoot good, but shoot no better than a DM8, Vice, Droid, or any other marker out.

Try some markers for yourself and then buy it.

Get what you feel is best for you and dont forget you'll have to pay taxes so it may come out to be a little more then a grand. Also you should wait a few months the 09' will be comming very soon and you may want that instead.

I like Ego's and will most likely get the 09' but I'm really lovin' my glorified improved Shocker right now. It's also a head turner, LOL!!

Hmm, wont the dm9 / ego9 be alot more expensive than 1k? plus , I dont see how you can improve ego8/dm8. For my first marker really, I dont need anything better lolz.

Whats the main difference between the ego8/dm8, and which one would you guys get if you had 1k?
