Etha not geo2. IMO coming from owning a geo2 the etha is not very attractive whatsoever.

It's cool pe made an affordable gun for the general public, but u would not catch me sporting one .

That's because it's not meant to attract players like you who already own/have owned an EGO or a GEO. It's not meant to be comparable to those markers. This is a new platform meant to attract a different segment of players.

I play x-ball, woodsball, and just about every other format available out there and I find this marker is attractive to me. I've owned droids, cyborgs, egos of all levels, dm's of all levels and some shockers of varying degrees. To me, simple = better. I havent held or shot this marker yet BUT I think it'll fit what Im looking for in a marker. Simple, relatively efficient, inexpensive. As long as it proves strong & reliable, then Im sold. So far the reviews have been good.

The Etha uses an entirely different bolt kit to the Geo - it isn't just the old Geo bolt kit in a newer, cheaper marker with an LED board as many people had assumed it would be.

There have been several requests that Planet produce a cheaper version of the Geo, in much the same way that the Etek could be considered a cheaper version of the Ego. This marker - even though it doesn't exist at this time and may never exist - has become known as the 'Gtek'. That isn't what the Etha is, and that is why it isn't called a Gtek.

The Geo is a blow forward spool valve, while the Etha is more of a pressure controlled poppet, with a spring returned bolt.

But does anyone know where the name came from? Does it stand for something or actually have a meaning behind it like the name Ego and Geo?
