Havent seen anything about upgrades..at least PE wont be releasing any and it takes third parties a while to come up with with some. Operates just fine, and comes with alot of extra o-rings, detents, etc. i think u can swap the feed neck off the etek.

PE has said there are some type of modular kits in the works, but no real announcement on what they are, or any real word on factory upgrades yet.

It accepts the same feedneck as all 07 and newer Egos (I believe it may also be able to use an older (05-06) feedneck).

Operates fine, shoots much better than similar priced markers IMO.

Not sure on that, but it's possible it could be the same as the Etek3 trigger/assembly? Wait for someone to give a definitive answer.

Both sports? We're playing one sport of paintball lol. If you're asking in regards to speedball vs. woodsball, then yes it is. It will perform well in either game style of play.

To answer your original question, the stock feedneck is plenty sturdy and should hold up well. The Etha does not need any upgrade or replacement feedneck. If you're asking what loaders will fit it, then all loaders on the market should be able to fit fine with the adjustable screw it's easy to tighten down.

Upgrades wise the only thing you could get is a smaller bore barrel, besides that everything is excellent stock.
