Review: I was attending the ION game at Skirmish this year and happened to be fortunate enough to test an Eclipse E-tek at the eclipse tent. Yes, Eclipse had a tent at a Scenario game. So did Dye. I think that's a big deal, so I'm mentioning it here. Anyway, getting back to the E-tek.

I picked it up thinking it was to the Ego as the Ion is to the Shocker. Not so. This marker has a solid feel to it and was still fairly light. I've held an SL-66 and it wasn't as lite as that, but it was still light weight. I'm not much of an XSV fan, so I've never looked at the higher end, extensively milled egos because they all have XSV all over them. If I could find an SL-66 without all the XSV stuff on it, I'd buy one. But again, getting back to the marker.

I was given a hopper full of reball to play around with. First touch on the trigger wowed me. Very little kick. I mean very little. The marker was also quiet compared to what I'm used to shooting (timmy). The trigger had a very nice feel to it and I was able to rip without problems. I wasn't over a chrono so I can't say what the consistency was, but with the stock barrel and reball, the thing was driving tacks. No drop off on strings or anything. I was very impressed with it.
Conclusion: Overall, I know my review can't say much since all I did was play around with it through some reball, but having had this experience with it, if I test shot this first prior to buying my RL timmy, I would've saved some money and bought the E-tek. I had a very good experience with it and wanted to tell others about it. I gave it a 9 because although it is a kick ass marker, there still is some weight that can be taken off, and some color options to be had.
