I have a Etek 4 Lt.. What upgrade would I need or is it even possible to achieve this ROF?
I know fields wont let you shoot this fast and its not needed!! I dont care about that!
I don't think the Etek solenoids can honestly cycle at 30bps. The Ego10 had one of the faster solenoids from Eclipse which allows it to hit that ROF. In my Etek3 on uncapped modes, I'd probably max out around 20bps. It was fun for some backyard experimentation but gets old fast. My advice, don't worry about it, save your money for paint on the weekends and enjoy your Etek4 the way it is. Those markers are machines and built to last and work well stock.
The only "upgrade" I'd recommend is a smaller bore Shaft 4 back or whichever barrel you prefer and a Cure 3+ (if you are breaking paint or having issues). Otherwise leave it stock, they work awesome that way.
