Etha or geo+?

Hey there,

I'm stuck between two guns with about $100 price difference give or take. But is the geo+ worth the extra 100 or should I get the Etha and take my money Elsewhere and invest in a new loader? If you guys could help me out that would be great!

Depends, is the Geo+ in good condition? When I look at getting guns, I always make sure they have all stock parts, and they come with case, manual, barrel, spares, stuff like that. Just makes it better. If it isn't all stock then I, me personally, would NOT get it, I would straight for the Etha, shot a couple of them and they are great, very quiet and minimal kick. Hope this helps you.

Another question is, what kind of efficiency are you looking for? The Geo+ is a gas hog! I loved mine but, had to give it up because where I play we can only fill to 3000psi. I was only getting about 4 pods off a 68 filled to 3000. I have an Etha and get about 6 to 7 pods off the same tank.

You are comparing Apples to oranges in these two markers.
They are both paintball markers yes, but one is a used high end and the other is a brand new mid/entry level tournament gun.

I would recommend the brand new Etha. That way you know you have an in Warranty gun that comes with everything in the box.

These are both great markers, but are going to feel completely different.
Both will shoot 12.5 BPS in PSP and rediculious rates in semi. However the Geo will be much more smooth, have more milling, and have more features (LCD board, all metal parts)

The Etha will have a full warranty and all new parts in the box. If this is your first tournament gun those things are worth it.

Just my .02
