You-Know-Who has a video of a sl8r getting over a case on a 4100 fill shooting 290 or something like that.

The only other poppet marker I shoot besides my Cyborg are intimidators. Ego's kick and sound like cannons in my opinion, I truly despise that noise. Not to mention I think they're really over rated and over priced for their performance. But because of the ego I scream like a fiend on the field now. The refs say they can hear me at the chrono station while I'm playing on the fields which is a good hundred feet away and over all the shooting.

IMO, egos are......

too loud
too much kick
too poor efficiency (for a poppet gun)
too light and flimsy
too much hype
too hard on paint
too small
too much money
etc.

Borgs are great. Get one, or wait till the new one at World Cup. They're supposed to be completely redoing the borg from what rumors sound. If not, wait till world cup at least for the big price drop.

~It all depends on how you tune the gun. Mine almost sounds like a well tuned Timmy..
~Kick?? Its called the Zick Kit..
~Do you really need to shoot a case on one fill??
~Im not going there...
~People like them for a reason.
~um.. yeah 15 cases & no chops to hard on paint for you???
~ok but thats up to you..
~ok but you get what you pay for.

Note: I did own an 07 Cyborg. It shot really good but I hated the trigger & frame. The lpr imo could be designed better. I had problems with lpr Orings blowing off inside and the wires are VERY easily broken.
Overall the Cyborg is a very high quality gun for the money.
Both the Ego & Cyborg are really easy to clean & maintain.

I say if you can borrow someones 07 Ego & 'borg for the day & see which one you like best.

EDIT: how is this thread not closed??? VS threads are a no no..

do eclipse boys literally wait until theres under 1500 users and just search for ego vs. threads to troll in? seriously.

vs. threads are useless for a reason. either you play enough to be trusted by someone at your field enough to shoot their ego (i know someone has one, someone always does) or you dont need either, and should look up this proto rails.

if you cant find a borg to try. dont buy one. why in gods name would you buy a gun you have never held and hope its better than a known quantity. that's foolish.

odds are your local network has 100x better PE support for parts and techs, so theres that too.

but yea, i think anyone experienced enough to be allowed to own either already knows the characteristic differences with both.

edit: apology to an, i didnt read the rest of his post. i just assume in this context that when you quote a regular and respond in bullet points your trolling. lol
