Looking at coming back into paintball after some time off. Besides the used stuff what are some thoughts on proto reflex, etek 3, etha, macdev drone? Looking around 550 mark to spend max on the marker.

The Drone is a great marker and would be my pick out of these 3. It has interchangable parts with the clone. The reflex is similary to a Dm9, but without a lpr and has the new asa and reg. Shoots smooth, but no lpr to make it shoot dm smooth. The etek3 will be the most reliable, but does have some kick to it compared to the other two. The etha is brand new while the others are proven designs. Also, the etha didn't feel very stury when I held it, which makes me a little uncomfortable. For the extra money, it is worth getting one of the other three.

Agreed ^

Not sure if you'd be able to find a drone in your price range either. Right now I see most of them on the nation going for $650-$800.

EDIT: Sorry CLONE^ not DRONE. ....proceed.

I personally love how an ego shoots. I've had two of them. Be careful I've herd some bad things bout the 09. See if u can't go fire one before u buy it.

Hey I have tons of markers.. My favorites, still, are my Axes.. These are fantastic markers. Easily upgraded, Absolutely the easiest marker to maintain hands down.. tool-less! I've been through all the smart parts guns, I own Timmies, I own DP's, When I want to get on the field quick though..these are the markers I reach for.

I don't think any paintball marker could stand up to an alien invasion..

Except DP.... Don't think there is much of a technical difference in these markers.. its aesthetics.. which one floats your boat?

except for the older markers being friging tanks compared to the rail.. a new rail would make you feel like you were superman. It's much lighter and narrower in the hand. They all shoot great. I wasn't sure about the eye tube in the rail, but after using it.. it's pretty sweet.

Etek3 or Proto Reflex ........ primarly wanting thoughts on which one is easier to maintain on my own and may be more reliable in the long run (if either). I'm liking the price points on these two, both in the new or used arena.

easier? hmmm.. nice being able to pull the bolt to clear a broken ball (etek) more to take apart if you get paint in the ram though.

I use exposed bolt markers for woodsball all the time, but they do pose more chances of getting debris in the mech. If you are planning on crawling through the woods with it, you might consider the rail.. it si a breeze to clear breaks with the eye tube. and no open dirt magnets..

Easier? No easy answer there.. hold them if you get a chance.. its more personal preference then performance...

Addendum.. I've had 2 rails and for some reason the frame screws come loose VERY easily. Locktite blue has kept me on the field lately.. it sucks when the marker starts to misfire, and you realize the frame screw is missing..
