how reliable is an 07 ego? like saying its been well kept, not amazing but you know like cleaned and taken care of and everything runs as is now. is it worth spending $250 on an 07 ego? or should you just get a newer gun?
I got the 05 Ego when if first came out and played numerous tournaments all over the world in all kinds of weather, hot and cold. Shot cases and cases through it and it never let me down. Ego's are just tanks!!! IMO $250 for an 07 or 08 is money well spent. It's almost impossible to get a lemon Planet Eclipse Ego.

What he said ^
This topic has been brought up a lot, and the general consensus is that an 07/08 ego is still more than competitive in today's tournament scene. It may be louder and "kick" more then the current generation of the ego, but you're still getting a high end marker for lowend price.
The only functional changes an 07 or 08 would have would be that they're a tad smaller than guns these days, and don't have the changes made to be as smooth. That's really it.
They're reliable and efficient, and very well crafted.
$250 for an Ego7 is a bargain. New grips, o-ring rebuild, all cleaned up and properly lubricated, you could play an entire year without doing anything but cleaning the barrel/breech/bolt. Guaranteed. Many pro's back in the day would never maintain their Ego's unless needed and they could last many cases without anything going wrong. Personally I'd rather have an SL74 or Ego8 but they're all great markers.

Solid shooter at a budget price, I have owned an 06, sl66, and 3 07's. All of them are/were reliable and low, low, LOW maintenance and super efficient on air. A good primary or back up marker for your gear bag.
