Etha effiency

I've shot 3-4 pods through my etha before doing a effiency test of my own. With a 45/45 tank, 3000 fill. There were 3 kinds of paint mixed in. Valken, some kind of cheap Walmart stuff, and some cheap Kmart paint. Didn't size any of the paint. Used stock barrel, all settings are stock. Got 4.5 pods on a 3000 fill. Anyone else getting different results? Will be doing a full 4500 psi test ASAP.

I would say on a 68/4500 you will get about 6 or so pods

My friend got 8 pods of his 56/4500 off the box.

I personnaly used it for a practice, didnt count but it took quite a while before i had to go back to fill.

got to use my etha today for a true game style, so off of 4500 fill at 12ms 277-285fps rate, temp was around mid 70's i got close to 1400 paintballs. for a gun only used twice and still needing to break in, thats amazing. im sold and most likely will buy another etha as a backup. got to love this gun. thanks PE for making a awesome marker.

try adjusting the dwell and fps im in a high alltitude so that plays a factor in efficiency, also i hate to say this but i find the etha does not like the dye barrels.
