Ego 8 Vs. Etek 5

Hey guys,

I have finally decided to try out a marker from PE, and am stuck between picking up either an Ego 8 or an Etek 5. For Ego fans, the 8 seems to have been the best release, but the Etek 5 is more modern as it was released in 2015. Thanks for the help, I appreciate everyone's comments.

I much prefer the etek5. It is smoother, quieter, and has the LPR tucked into the front grip which is more comfortable.

I’d agree with IronyUSA. The ETEK 5 will have better ergonomics and they will both shoot very similarly.

The Ego 8 has some delicate internal parts that are getting increasingly scarce.

PS if you need Ego8 HPR/LPR piston seats, I sell ones I made on eBay.
