etek

i suggest getting an etek 4. It is extremely reliable and being a planet eclipse made marker you will find no shortage of parts and help if something does go wrong. i personally own an etek 4 and it works great. You can take out the bolt just by pulling it up and out with your hand so if you break a ball you can very easily clean it in seconds. i have not had a single problem with mine and i think it is the better choice.

The Invasion will be much smoother than the Etek but Eclipse will have much more widespread support and parts.

All modern poppets have the bolt removed like that... Bad reason to choose Etek over alien especially if u haven't used an alien there is no sense in u picking that way. I am in the market for a new poppet though and want some more opinions from people who've owned and shot the new invasion.

I have not shot the INVASION, but when I had a chance to play with the Independence it shot extremely smooth for a stacked tube poppet. Not quite as nice as a Vice or G6R, but better than *almost* every Ego I've shot.

Personally I'd say the Etek 4 as I own one & it's an amazing shooter, Yes fairly loud tho. Haven't had the chance to shoot an invasion tho, Best of luck with your choice!
