Both good guns. Etek 3 doesn't have qev's and it has same reg as ego 10. Only difference is milling, weight, and the ego board w/ screen. Etek is still capable of all play setting. Jut comes down to money and preference. For the money... Etek.

Ego 8.

The Ego is smaller, lighter, faster, more efficient (afaik), and has the better board.

Now, I'd say to save a bit more and buy an Ego9, but that's just me.

I actually agree as long as the ego9 is plank'd/ barb'd. Or you could go the other way and get an ego7 and do the banjo mod (remove QEV) and do alright too.

Ego 8 if you're dead set on PE

Pretty much any other gun other than those two if not unless you like guns that sound like howitzers and kick like mules.
