I know ape and virture have boards, tech t mrt bolt is the only bolt out besides the stock one( maybe lurker can look into making something like he did on the mini/axe), violent products has 2 types of triggers planet eclipse has the upgraded springless poppet and there isn't really anything else on the market yet for the Etha but it hasn't really taken off yet. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on any of this information

I would skip the mrt bolt. A bunch of people said it caused breach wear.

Yeah I'm new to the Etha but every internal "upgrade" for my A5 I bought ended up being sub par to the stock internals in some way. I have the new poppet on the way and I may change out the barrel for something shorter (I have the body kit and play almost exclusively woodsball and scenarios). What does everyone think of the Etha stock barrel?

Etha stock barrel is fine if your are shooting decent paint. I shot some Empire Heat a while ago and they had very slight dimples on a few. I had velocity spikes and the paintballs were not flying straight sometimes.

I shot some premium and it was ball on ball every time. Same with a fresh batch of XO spectrum and DXS basic training.

Biggest factor in accuracy is paintball quality. The only real reason to change barrel is the aesthetics. That and under bore to gain slightly better efficiency or over bore when its hot/cold.

Just use one of those. The ultra light and stiffi are nice barrels. Save some cash.

The nightstick would be a waste of money. It's almost the same bore size of the etha barrel .001 difference. You could just get the etha barrel back freak bored and get some freak inserts.

The only up I put on mine was a Violent Duece trigger, thing was astounding. I just used my shaft kit from my geo for a barrel kit

I'm designing a new frame/adapter plate (not that the stock frame isn't nice) and I'll post somewhere with what I come up with.

The Etha really doesn't need much upgrade wise. It's great out of the box.
