Review: When I first opened the case (very nice) on this gun I was surprised to find that the ego is rather large for what everybody talks about. It is still small but it is definitely not as small as I was thinking it would be. Then I aired it up and dryfired it and it was nice. It had a little bit of kick but other then that it was fine. The choice of spring or magnetic trigger is nice but if you take out the screw for the magnet the screw for the spring starts to come out which makes the trigger so light that if you just barely shake the gun it goes off. I received the maniac board on my gun so I was dying to find out what it would shoot like on ramping so I put it on unlimited ramp. WOW! Very nice. It was one of the fastest guns I have ever seen shoot in real life. I shot off a bag of paint probably within five minutes of shooting. The max I got on it was about 22 bps because my empire isn't fast enough to let the ego achieve it's fullest potential. It did not chop while I shot probably 1000 balls out of it and it was somewhat cold out. The one piece shaft I got with my ego was extremely accurate for being a $30-$40 barrel. It was probably better then my brother's ultralight on his dm4. When I first went out to play with the gun I was impressed big time. It shot ropes all day. Nothing went wrong with it all day and was wonderful. I was getting looks from people with dm6's and everything. The only real weakness it had when I was playing was the kick was noticable. I'm sure this can easily be fixed if you get a new bolt and drop the dwell and everything else.
Conclusion: I would recommend this gun to anybody that is serious about improving their game. This gun will not let you down. Just make sure your ready to handle the rof the ego puts out. If you're looking between this and the dm6 then I would definitley try and shoot both and decide from their but I went from a proto to an ego and love it so I would still go with the ego. If you're comparing with anything else you're a fool. GO WITH THE EGO. Good luck mowing faces with this beast. 9 because nothing is perfect and because of little problems. 10 if it had no kick and trigger screw didn't fall out
9 out of 10
