Review: OK so here's the deal

My two primary guns got stolen in an online scam, and as to date, even the authorities have been unable to retrace them. So being in college, and playing alot of PSP and some 7-man, I needed an affordable, but reliable gun to play out the season till I got the money to get an 07 ego.
We picked up a couple of sponsorships, which included a deal with a local store to use their apparel and "eclipse" products. So I went out and all I could afford was an Etek ego, so i grabbed the hurricanes edition Etek (which looked sweet).
I put a UL barrel on it right off the bat, and played around with it on a couple of practices. What I noticed was that the marker performed flawlessly everytime, and was fast,light and pretty accurate. My friend installed a cure bolt and TI rammer in it, and I played all day with only a couple of chops, in about 55 degrees. I admit that I was a little apprehensive about the etek when I got it, as it was cheaper than the usual High end stuff, but it simply blew my mind. It is just an all-round awesome marker, and with a couple of ups it keeps up with anything on the field.
Conclusion: To conclude the review, let me finish off by saying that I highly recommend this marker to anyone looking for a cost effective, yet high-end and reliable marker. It is light, fast, accurate, and last but not the least, very efficient (can get ~1400 rounds using the right settings,good paint/bore size, and a 68/45).
9 out of 10
