Etha with pops and techt bolt v.s. new G4

I am in an argument with my friend. He thinks it is more cost effective to get a brand new G4 for $275 than getting a barely used Etha with a POPS asa and the Techt MRT bolt for $325. I tried my friend's G4 and I hatted it and it leaked. My other friend (the one telling me to get the G4 instead of an Etha) says he never had any problems with his. If my the one my other friend got leaks OUT OF THE BOX what is the chance of that happening with me. I know it is an easy fix but I still think that they Etha will work better. I need some opinions on the Etha and which is a better buy for me. Please help I don't want to make the wrong decision.

You're probably not going to get the most biased answer in here, but IMHO, the Etha is the better deal. In the interest of full disclosure, I am sponsored by PE - not because I was looking for cool benefits, but because I believe in the brand. I was using PE guns by choice for 5 years before I got on a sponsored team. Their design, performance, and customer service are second to none.

You're getting a gun that was originally $350 plus a $65 POPS plus a $50 MRT bolt. I don't care if it's used - that's still a good deal and I believe the best value. Unless there's some kind of damage to the gun, there's no major loss in the original purchase value of the gun. The previous owner did you a favor and broke it in for you.

Etha will keep its Value a bit more, DP doesn't hold vlaue as well as Planet. I had a G3 for a short time and it had issues with velocity, might have been just an O-ring... I've never shot the Etha, so I can't speak on that...but you do get a nice case, and it has all that Milsim stuff as options if you want to go that route.

May I ask why you don't spend 350 on a used Axe? It falls in between price wise, Kee(empire's parent company) has insanely good customer service in terms of Warranty. The Axe ASA is just as nice as the pops( I have a Geo 2.05, and an Axe pro)...The trigger on my Geo is better than the axe in terms of rebound, and the Geo shoots a bit nicer, but not A LOT(700 dollars nicer is what I mean) nicer. All I know is when ever I speak to someone with a Geo or an Ego, and they are looking to down grade(for money reasons), the first words they utter are "Axe" not G4 or Etha.

Another thing, if you are posting in here to get a comparison, and you did not post in the G4 forum? then I think you have already made up your mind...hahaha

I love my AXE ... its clean... I was going to get an EGO. Shot it , used it, loved it... loud and exspensive EGO...But got an AXE for cost reasons. But the AXE is a beast! I'm flerting with the idea of a an ETHA for a baackup. Its a hardcore gun. I love the video of it being thrown in the water and kicked in mud and the fires like a champ. I know my AXE wouldnt do that. Not very water friendly. I think the ETHA will be be an awsome wet, cold weather back up.

I hadn't seen the video so I looked it up.

Wow. That is awesome. I figured it was PE quality and could take being thrown around, but dropping it into a creek and completely submerging it....that's great. Really impressive. Me thinks it might be time to buy one.

The Etha with a POPS ASA and MRT Bolt is a steal... imo... Although, the stock ASA the Etha comes with will do the job perfectly fine.

I would still choose the Etha over the G4 even without the POPS ASA. But what do I know? I'm an Etha owner, love my marker, and so in a way my opinion is a bit biased. =P
