egos- are very reliable i had one, never really had to clean it after i used it. never had any prob. with it. shoots almost any kinda paint fine.

i have used 07 and 08. the only prob. is there are loud, like cannons compared to closed bolt guns.

dms- not as reliable, i had a dm had to take it apart and lube it just about everytime i got done using it, not as reliable as egos, but alot quiter, less kick. and if you tune it right they can be more air efficent too.

most people that post asking witch is better a closed bolt or open bolt i tell them its personal preferance.

what kind of paintball do you play? tourney? rec play?

the way i see it. if you play up in the front, you prob. want a quiter gun.

but you have to also think if you have time to clean all your gear over and over.

egos and dms both have positive and negatives but there both great guns.

That's really an understatement. When you are trying to listen to your teammate screaming at you but the marker is drowning out his voice because its so loud, then you will wish you had a quieter marker.
You'll be surprised at how you can't avoid not being heard when playing.

I actually use a matrix and timmy and as long as they are properly maintained, you should never have any problem with it. I used to play 3-4x a week with practice and would clean it out once a week. Not a bad trade off.

All markers however will have their faults. You just will have to go with your gut feeling on them. I say play both of them and take it from there.
