I know I'm a newbie in this sport but whatever I don't care if it takes me a while to get used to it or figure things out the hard way that's life IMO

all i gotta say to you is dont go shoot a g6r then cuz you will want to put he ego up for sale..anyways on to the topic.. it is the macroline a whole $3-5 fix and any monkey can change a macroline really probably the most simple thing you can do.. while you are watching youtube videos make sure you watch the one on how to lube and clean your $1200 gun so you dont really **** it up

*^^ thank u, I'm on my way to buy the new line as we speak

My friend has a g6r and I was between that and ego 11 so I ended up getting the ego

Some ppl think the g6r is better then ego 11? I know it's about 400 cheaper aswell

This shouldn't become a vs thread so I'll just give some basic info

I've shot TONS of guns and all I can say is that it's all preference. The best gun I've ever shot is my sl74, and with its current resale, it's certainly not the most expensive gun I've owned. When you're in the market for a new gun, try out as many as you can at the field.

some of my personal favorites for example are the pm6/7, ego 7, vice, and infinity legend. None of these are over 400 bucks. Although I'm sure you have cash to spend, I wouldn't advise dropping quite as much as you feel the need to, especially if you are a new player. All you need for now is something that you're comfortable with and that works whenever you visit the field.

Just wiggle the macro around, You do not need to buy new macroline. I would say this is the most common type of leak out of all guns. (other than the gas through grip guns)

agreed i got my Vego11 in the mail eariler this month and it is simply amazing.. now onto the main question.. it is fine for your ego to let a little gas escape from that area.. mine also did the same thing when i 1st aired it up.. now it does it for like 2 seconds and goes away..

Just enjoy your ego11, i do agree 3 months into playing and getting a Bnib ego11 is kinda crazy but hey to each there own.. ive only been playing for a year now and i have my ego 11 .. but i tell ya i dont think my wallet will ever recover.. ahah

and also if you are having problems with an ego, you sould probly post in the ego section.. just sayin..

This is common on every marker that has a external macroline. Just about every marker I've shot or seen others shoot has had this happen at one time or another.

Just wiggle the macroline a bit or push it into the fitting and it should go away.

Here's how it started about 1 1/2 month I went to play pb with my friends we all got guns and after that day it changed everything immediately I ordered a tippmann gun with my buddy because we fell in love in the sport, and we got tippmans because that's what the rentals were, after about 3 weeks my friend bought and etek 2 and when I was playing with him I was amazed how fast and accurate that gun was, so immediately I sold the tippmann bought a etek 3 Am and about a month into pb I started looking and ugrades for the etek the LCD board and starting wAtching alot of utube videos, so then I came across the ego fell in love with that instantly started doing research and I liked all the ugrades the ego 11 had including the nice LCD board so I sold my etek 3 am and bought a ego 11 Shriner 2 simple and after shooting it last night for the first time one word only. Amazing

^^^ nothing wrong with that, I've got a nice collection of real guns aswell.

Anways UPDATE***
took the gun into a local shop they first cut the line at the end a little
But that only got worse
So they put a new line on it
And it's better now, it would only leak for about 10 sec and then go away so I'm sure it's fine. Macroline was 3 bucks so that wasn't a biggie

Now I have
A question for all you ego owners is there any ugrades or add ones for the ego 11?

Like suggested, I would look around in the EGO section for the answer to the upgrade questions.

However the general answer will be that you need to play with it and find out what you do not like about it. When you know what you want to change, you will be able to pin point what you need to upgrade. At that point, you can look at reviews on individual products and decide what would be best.
Your questions are answered in the PbNation FAQ. If they're not, please feel free to ask a moderator.
