Review: To start, PE really set the standard for high end paintball markers with the Ego. It truly is an amazing, solid marker right out of the box. However, with a few upgrades, like the barrel for instance, this marker is an unstoppable killing machine in....CAPABLE HANDS ; ) . It is fast, light and will almost never let u down in terms of its reliability. Mine hasn't given me any major issues yet. Regular maintenance (which is a breeze) will keep your gat up and running forever. The only downside to the ego is its accuracy. Dont get me wrong, it's pretty accurate with a good paint to barrel match, but its accuracy is not as precise as a Matrix. Nevertheless, the pros outway the cons by a TON!
Conclusion: Truly one of the most popular high ends out there, and for a good reason. I will definitely recommend this product to anyone lookin for a solid marker, that will not let them down. Egos are expensive, so if u dont have the $, look into the Etek.
