No?
The 4c eyes are a noticeable improvement in semi play. If you are going to be playing a lot of semi, I would definitely recommend them. They, along with a trigger that is comfortable to you, will help you get the fastest, most consistent streams possible.
The reason why they aren't worth it for some is because a lot of tournament play these days is done with ramping and a good number of players only use semi for occasional rec or fun play. The 4c eyes are nice but not really needed for these people. I love mine, I thought I could do without them until one of them broke and I had to go back to the 2c eyes. I ended purchasing replacements.
Here is my thought on other upgrades: Dow 55, Triflow, and an O-ring kit are no brainers.
Only minimal improvements if any improvements over stock.
A pretty popular upgrade that works as advertised. Allows you to run lower hpr pressures which give a slightly smoother and quieter shot.
Minimal improvements if any.
Noticeable consistency and speed improvement.
Totally a preference. A comfortable trigger is going to allow you to shoot fast. The stock is an excellent trigger if it is comfortable.
This will give a pretty good efficiency increase for efficiency nuts. For the price I think it is one of the better purchases for the G6R.
Zero Ping ram:
Not an essential item, it can quiet down the return sound of the ram some if that bothers you.
I feel this is an essential item, it allows quick adjustment and reference of your pressures which will keep your gun running perfect.
Performance wise the stock barrel is great. Some might have a preference to more bore or porting options.
For reference I own the following: Violent Products trigger, Ebisu Board, TechT Hush Bolt, Pillow Bolt, Premium Pillow Bolt, 4c eyes, LP Poppit, SLP Pro Regulator, Dye CF Boomstick. About half the upgrades were nice and about half were a bust, overall I like trying all the different parts out and finding what works best for me.
