technical differences =/= personal standpoints

the 08 is slightly shorter, slightly lighter and comes with a few better stock parts like a sprung HPR, zick kit, cure bolt etc. I love my ego8 but the ego7 isn't any worse or better

I've always like the 8 better than the 7. The 8 will come with newer items, such as stated before with the spring in the HPR (no shims to mess up during maintenance), zick kit (first year it was introduced), cure bolt (both the 7/8 come stock with it). My opinion is that the 8 shoots a little better, but both guns get the job done and are great bang for your buck.

Thanks! I'm like the smoothness of my pm8 and this would be my 2nd ego I had an 05 then I traded up from there

The QEV "issue" is nothing to freak out about. All you need to do is keep some diaphragms around and read your manual. If it happens, it is a 5-10 minute fix.

Personally, I have changed out the QEV diaphragms in my sl74 once. It was incredibly easy and I had the other ones in for 50+ cases. I haven't had a problem since and I'm probably nearing 100 cases now. The only reason I replaced them is because I was doing my yearly rebuild for good measure.

Exactly. The QEV's will be good for many many cases before they actually go out. Quick easy fix if you pick the 7/8 platform.

Yeah I know as little as I shoot, I'd only need to replace a diaphragm once yearly. And some remove the QEV from the 07/08's if I'm not mistaken. I'd do that to smooth it out.
In all reality neither model will matter. They both shoot good enough that it boils down to the player, and you'll not be outgunned by any newer marker.
