Upgrades for an ego 6, eyes not working


So I recently purchased an ego 6. I'm stuck in tournament mode for some reason but what ever that's fine. The eyes were working yesterday all of a sudden today they're not so I'm going to order new ones.

However if I'm going to order online from the states as its my only real option, can you recommend and barrels or boards that might still be available for this marker?

There are but all the stores in my area dont seem to carry any of this stuff. It's okay it's mostly available online but shipping costs are enormous haha. It's odd that the eyes just stopped working. They were working yesterday, and I hadn't pulled it apart or opened it up and they suddenly just quit working haha. Oh well. I'll order some when I feel like paying $70 for them.

Go to they're selling tadao boards for the 05/06 dirt cheap, as for barrel, I loved the furious lotus I bought from Jmorisaki. If you're ordering a new one online you can look into a new shaft, cf boomstick, or save a couple bucks and get a cheaper one like a cp 2 piece. My 06 had a cure 3, virtue eyes and a tadao, it was a monster, with basically just those upgrades it consistently shot 23bps+ and got about 1600 shots per tank...but I was never a tuning guru.

Check to make sure you have a good, name brand battery, and that the eyes are clean of debris before buying new ones. Also be sure that they or in the marker correctly, red on the right(if you were holding the marker ready to shoot) and black on the left.

As far as upgrades go for barrels I would get the Stella from Inception. My personal favorite. I use it over my Dye CF Boomstick.
