Question Ego7 w/ Halo&09 Tank or Ego8 w/ Prophecy&03 Tank?

Im looking at buying either an Ego7 with Ninja 68cu birth: 10-09, Halo hopper, CP Shorty Regulator and Cure 3 bolt for around $420. Or an Ego8 stock with Empire Prophecy hopper, and Ninja 68cu birth: 02-03 last Hydro: 03-10 for around $315. Both Markers are in excellent condition.

So the obvious conclusion is that the Ego8 is the slightly better marker and the Prophecy is the better hopper, especially for a lower price. However the Tank that comes with it is 2 years into its Hydro and roughly 5 left on its life. Either way I was planning on buying a 50cu stubby tank. So I would look to sell which ever tank I got from buying the marker. I feel I could sell the newer tank for a decent amount. I'm just concerned there would be little interest in the older tank leaving me stuck with it. At which point, after buying the 50cu tank, I'd be spending the same amount of money I was saving. And if I could find someone to buy it how much could I really get for it? So which would you go for? Do you think I'd be able to sell the older tank? If so for how much?

Thanks for you help. ;]

Unless that Ego8 is completely beat, which you said it isn't, it's a lot better buy. Normally 08's go for almost $400 by themselves. The CP reg on the 07 does nothing for it's performance and I think they look ugly, the bolt also in my opinion isn't really worth any extra to me. I highly doubt there would be any noticeable performance difference. The 08's are still known as one of the best Ego platforms released to.

The birthdate of tank doesn't really matter that much since it's been rehydro'd and actually has more time on the hydro than the other tank. I haven't had a 68 tank in forever but I believe the last one I sold went for $90

Go with the 08, even if you don't end up able to sell the tank the money you save over the 07 should pay for the 50ci tank anyways and you end up with a slightly better gun and much better hopper.

Yes if your planning on buying a new tank anyways, I'd go with the Ego 08. Just make sure you ask him the specs on each marker.

yea, id go for the 08 and just get another tank later if need be. plus youd get a nicer hopper, and its the better deal.

i just picked up an 07 ego with cure3 that could have almost passed for new. came with the case, spare parts, and zick kit for $325 for example.

Let just say the Ego8 was $450-500 would it still be the better purchase?
