Thoughts on Etha

ok guys got to try my etha today, man wow is all i can say i love it, i was awwed at how it shot, and handled. mind you this is out of the box no adjustments except firing mode.

Dwell 12ms
68/4500 filled to 2000psi (2 1/2 pods)
Chrono 274,275,277,273,276 (wow)
psp ramp 12bps
Stock barrel
76* outside temp no wind.

accuracy i was hitting a 7x7 targert at 62.3 yards(rangefinder) i have to say with ramping and brand new gun with stock barrel i was impressed, i think this marker has alot of potential and should never be underestimated. i will use it tomorrow 3/18/2012 in a actuall woodsball game and update my thoughts after that, thank you PE for a sweet cheap marker so far.

I used one today at my field. One of my teammates bought one, and I used it since I have traded my primary. I was impressed by how it shot, not much kick, and the stock barrel was pretty decent. Trigger took a little getting used to, but once I was used to it I learned to like it. I may have to get one of these sometime soon. Wicked Sports in Tampa had one that had been lasered by Kohn. Have to say that it looked really sweet.

I hope it wasn't friendly fire because an "I'm sorry" would have probably been appropriate instead of just being speechless.

I need to shoot one of these. I got to hold one at the local shop and was so surprised about how good it felt in my hands. The frame is beautiful and it balances perfectly in my hands.

Definitely getting one when I find $400.

It really hasn't got much kick. Have 10 cases through mine, decreased dwell to 10 and it shoots great. Even no probs with reballs.

I used my etha once and I have to say pretty much all the comments above apply to my experience. At first, I was a little dismayed at the trigger being used to my ego11, but once you start to use it, it really isn't that much of a factor especially in PSP ramp mode.

I got my etha from a trade and took it to the field to use without cleaning the bolt. That might have been a mistake. It still shot which was amazing considering how much of a mess was in the bolt/poppet assembly. I've since cleaned the gun, but it really is a testament to how robust the gun is. Even dripping with lube and oil, the gun still shot reasonably well.

Overall, quite pleased. For the price point, it's quite a good value. It's going to be my woodsball/scenario gun. Pretty much anytime when rocks and tree stumps are involved.
