Review: I just recently got my Etek Ego. So I haven't had too much time with the gun (no tourneys yet). The gun comes in a Planet Eclipse Metal Case, and when you open the case the marker looks extremely nice. The milling is high quality and the color was spot on. I first opened the manual took a quick look through that, and almost anything you would need to know you can find in the manual, it is def A+. The marker comes with complimentary oil, a bunch of allen keys, and a bunch of part o-rings detents ect. It also came with a 13" barrel and an eclipse barrel condom.

Test: So I screwed in my tank, and using the nice on/off screw on the asa, gased up the marker. I left all the settings stock. I turned the marker on, shut the eyes off and started to dry fire the marker, which felt real nice, low kick, a little loud (who cares), and nice. I then shut the marker off and turned it on in setup mode. I changed some settings around and turned down the LPR a bit, and then gased the marker up again, then dry fired it some more, real nice. So I headed to play some ball that night. I set everything up and go to the chrono and I cannot get a velocity reading. SO I turn the marker up, up, up, and still nothing. So I was a little irked. However it was my fault I turned the dwell setting down to 9 which is a little low for the etek, and the solenoid wasn't staying open long enough, so I wasn't shooting very high velocity, fixed that by turning the dwell to 11-12ms and everything was amazing. The gun played great, low kick, quite accurate. The only thing I might consider to add is a new trigger, or a longer barrel, for better bunker wrapping, but both stock barrel and trigger are fine.
Conclusion: A+, another great marker from eclipse, low maintenance, same performance characteristics as an ego '06 and alot cheaper. BUY IT
10 out of 10

Nice Review, Your One Of The People Who Helped My Decision On getting The ETek. Wait to break in your ETek Before Changing your settings and stuff might be your best bet o.o? Then go to any settings thread on here (Maybe) or PBnation. Anyways Once again Nice Review and have fun Paintballin
