Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
All sorts of Spyders, Tippmanns, and an Ion
Marker Setup: Planet Eclipse Etek Ego, Halo B V35 (With Boost Lithium), and a guerilla air 68/45
Recommended
Upgrades:
Definitely going to get a two piece barrel, clamping feed neck is nice. Looking into the Star Frame mod...
Strengths: Price, Fast, accurate even with the single piece, way easy programming.
Weaknesses: The ONLY thing I dont like is its not a magnetic trigger.
Review: Alright another edit after a year. Ive never had a problem with this marker. Never chopped a ball even... I clean it 100% after every game and shes never broke down on me. And Im a front player so I throw alot of paint... Id say this is the best marker Ive ever got to play a game with.

I play scenario games more than anything so speedballers might take this review with a grain of salt. From the use I got out of it Id say it was a heck of a buy for the price. There were guys everywhere chopping paint on the field. I never chopped a single ball int the eight hours of play.(Edit - 4months later and still no chops) Its an accurate marker and its fast when I need it to be. This gun has sold me to the electro pneumatic world and I will never go back to a mechanical marker. It was reliable and by the end of the day the reg started running smoothly and consistently. Ive played with an Ion for about 4 hours at a scenario about a month before I got this gun and wasnt to pleased with it. I think the Etek is a lot more comfortable and shoots a lot smoother.
Conclusion: I love this gun It'll shoot all the paint I can carry(7 pods + the hopper) and still have air to spare. It did everything I wanted it to and more. If your looking into getting an Ion you might want to check this gun out too. A bit more pricey but its worth it. I would recommend this gun to anyone with the time Ive had it. If anything comes up Ill have to mod the review but not so far.

Nice review. You addressed something i had been thinking about in considering a purchase of this marker. I'm mainly a woodsball player and was curious to hear about it from that point of view.

Nice review but come on man...this thing isn't even in the same category as the ion...it makes the ion look like a potato gun!

Fully agreed but I was considering an ION and held this baby and changed my mind. But an Edit has been made...

how do you think a etek is compared to a tippman or a ion
   

WarCowboy Sunday, January 20th, 2008 | 12:02 am PST
Because its a paintball marker...
The "similar products used" is asking just that.
The Etek is a marker, the ion is a marker, as is the tippmann.
Use some common since dude.
