Review: i used to own an ion. i played with it about 10 times and i knew i wanted a better gun due to the fact that i am gonna start playing in tournaments. so i had saved 750 dollars and i was looking to buy a new paintball gun from my local paintball shop. i was going to the store originaly to buy a proto matrix. When i got to the store i was looking and the proto matrix and i liked it alot. then i saw the etek ego up on the wall for the same price. i was deciding for about 15 mins on which gun to get. I finally decided to get the etek ego. on the way home i didnt even let the box out of my hands. i got home and the first thing i did was air it up and took it in the backyard to shoot some paintballs. i only had walmart paint sitting around so i figured it wouldnt be that good, but man was i wrong. i was amazed at the speed and accuracy of this gun and i didnt even adjust the trigger yet and i was using walmart paint. this weekends gonna be my first time using the gun on the field and after i do i will update this.

Update: I used this gun today. Its amazing. i was owning i was taking out people with dm6's, shockers, bob long's. i was mowing down ions no problem. this thing is amazing. i had it on just semi and my hopper couldnt even keep up. this thing was shooting ropes. no balls curving off. only thing i had a probelm with was the balls dropping into the feed neck but this was do to the fact that i was using walmart paint. so i would shoot about 50 balls then 1 would get jamed and i had to shake it. nothing better paint cant fix.
Conclusion: Get this gun its worth the money. i recomend it over the proto matrix and its the same price. this gun may seem like alot to you ion owners but its actually very cheap for an ego. if your thinking about getting an ion dont. ull like it at first and then your gonna want a better gun. so i suggest you just save your money for a little longer and get a better gun!

Got a question for you... Does the Nitro tank work well for you? Im about to buy the etek and I already have that tank. Does it work well with the Etek?
