Etha or etek

I was wondering what i should do. Im debating on the etek4 and the etha. I can either get the etha now or i half to wait till December for the etek4. Is the etek4 worth the wait and the extra money? I'm 14 so i don't have alot of money to begin with.

the etek4 is more comfortable, looks nicer more consistant. but for the money the etha is a good gun. try and shoot both then decide.

Having owned an etek 3 since they came out and being really happy with it, I was shocked by how nice the etha was for the price. If your looking to save a few bucks without sacrificing performance the etha is an awesome way to go.

I've owned the Etha and the Etek 1-3. I have an Etek 4 for sale and they shoot similar. The Etha is really bang for your buck and will get the job done. Try to shoot both to see which you like more, you won't be disappointed with either.

I hav an etha and an etek4 and i love the etek better but other than consistency, air efficiency, and weight, there is no major differences. It all depends if u prefer pop it or spool valves. Both hav the same programming in the board so after i bought the etek after i had the etha, wen i saw the programming was the same i was very happy. So in the end if u hav the mobey get the etek but other than that the etha is a great gun also

I have an etek 3 that I got for under $300. I couldnt be happier. Most of the time i have it capped at 11bps, so it depends on how your going to use it.
I say shop arounf the BST here pick up something used and spend the rest of your money on playing. Even an etek 2 would probably satisfy you. Havent shot an etha, but havent heard anything but good things from it either. Go with what deal (least expensive) deal you can get. Cant go wrong with any of them.
