Angel Speed 05 (easier to rip at the moment, not as accurate)
WGP Trilogy (much much slower, about the same accuracy)
some other high mid range guns
Urban Planet Eclipse Etek Ego, PMI 68/4500 N2 Tank, and Halo B
Nothing yet, maybe barrel eventually
Nice feed neck
Easy to change settings
Easy to strip
Just got it yesterday, but haven't experienced any yet
I just got this baby yesterday at my local pro shop for $750. I have been researching it for about three weeks and couldn't wait until it finally came out. As soon as I walked into the store and saw the Urban Etek on the shelf, I knew I had to have it. Not only was the gun sexy but it came in a really nice metal case with foam inside. I held the gun in my hands all the way home from the store. It is so light and compact. The frame almost molds with your hand to make it a perfect fit. On the way home, I stopped by Wal Mart to buy whatever paint I could afford. I know Wal-Mart paint blows but I had just spent all the money I had on the Etek. So when I got home I threw on my air tank and my halo and walked outside. Without making any adjustments to the trigger, this thing ripped pretty well, but I'm sure after I adjsut the trigger how I want, it will be even better. I was somewhat surprised by the accuracy of this baby. Even though I was using wal mart paint, this thing was still alot more accurate than the Angel my friend had let me borrow for the past couple of weeks. Although I haven't really played around with the settings much, the set up mode it has seems really easy to use. I had just filled up my tank the day before and I was able to shoot about 1350 balls before I ran out of air. I plan on going to my local field to play with this thing next weekend and I will update this review afterwards.
This is a wonderfully made marker. Since it is only $750, I consider the Etek to be a complete steal. It has most of the good features of the regular egos and the other more expensive high end markers. I totally suggest the Etek to anyone looking to purchase a new marker. It is brilliant.
You can find alot of them online, if you live in the states go to http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/S tore/en/-/USD/BrowseCatalog-Start;sid=nbc6tFUho0g6lRH6pvv6HF _1OPePaGH9BhY=?CategoryName=paintball-paintball-guns-eclipse -paintball-guns

I am considering this gun and I want to ask, Would this be a good gun for a back player whos gunna shoot lanes all day, thats what I do and my gun cant keep up with what I need(its limit is 15 bps, I hate I really want a new gun) I have been looking at the smart parts Shocker or Nerve or the Dye PM6 this one falls in with those and im considering it.....
Very nice review, your one of those souls that convinced me to buy it. I only got 2 more Helpful review points before I beat you =D Anyways good luck with your ETek, and have fun paintballing.
Jack Empire:Yes, their similar for the most part...just depends on what kind of shooting style you like. ETek might be louder and have more kick (Dont over exagerate these..bother are in very small amounts) but it will also be more reliable and SOOOO Easy to clean, and from what iv noticed with shockers, more accurate too.
Hey Jack, I have a freak barrel 2, from my old E2 Cocker. Although this seems like it would be better I saw it worse. I broke 2 Barrel balls, less accurate, Heavy (Stainless steel), and came loose. But i was using a bigger sized ball with the freak than i should have (I only have 1 insert) and the PE Barrel Matched it Good. But either way the 13' Shaft Barrel is not a cheapo stock one like a spyder and such, it is good quality.
Good luck gettign the ETek, Hopefully youll be happy if you get one ;)
