Etek2 cobalt/white w/Star frame and cure2 bolt
Vlocity Jr. w/virtue
none completely neede but,
Star frame - it helps program things easier because you can see it all in words
Very air efficeint
bolts easy to remove
Very nice looking
Trigger is a little weird (opinion)
Not enough money to buy another one
I haven't got out to play a game yet but shooting a lot and i havn't had any breaks. i have got about 1000-1200 shots off 2000psi. from around 75 ft. almost ball on ball every shot. i have shot this thing with a magna and a vlocity jr the magna keeps it more consistant but they both are good. the etek2 is so light and nice looking also very easy to maintain, i woud say the stock settings are good enough for most feilds.
BOLT - the bolt on the Eclipse guns make life so much easier. being able to take your bolt out jusst like that helps when your out there and need to take care of something and not get shot in the process.
FEEDNECK - The stock feedneck on the etek2 is great but the C-lever would be nice so you dont need a allen wrench but not really that bad that you need to go buy one.
REGULATOR - the stock etek2 reg is the best most consistent reg out of my hyper2 and it. i was chronoing in at 285 +- 1-3fps each time.
BARREL - tis barrel is very light and crazy accurate with the paint i have been using (DXS silver) i have had nothing but ball on ball since day one and all have hit their target nicely.
April 12, i got to play with this thing for the first time and let me just say WOW. even though i put a star frame on it the gun shot fastand shot dead on and not a single chop and not even a barrel break. i had to fill up my tank after about four rounds of play and each game i had a hopper full (Vlocity jr.) and three pods (140 round) and the station wasn't filling all the way to 4500 psi. for the first time i didnt know what to expect but now i wanna stay with nothing less than the etek2. i got the gun to fire at a peak of 17bps and a consistant 15-16.
April 27, alright got to play with this thing again and still no chops or breaks. the gun was still able go a long tim eto run down on air and i had a game that lasted maybe 10 minutes until it was ended in me getting bunkered. i was able to fling paint across dead accurate as usual but today i noticed i was only shooting 235 +- 2 fps insted of normal 275 fps but still made it to the target without much drop.again i will say it you must buy this gun if you want high performance for cheap.
May 10, ok so i got out there again today and still not a single chop, and no breaks either. im very pleased on how this gun is working and the accuracy. still everyone at the field complements it saying that its light sleek and very comfortable so thats gotta say something about it. all i gotta say is that the etek2 is wayyy worth it.
May 18, this thing is still never even chopping and hasnt had any barrel beaks. i had played for the second time on an outdoor field (my own) and performs perfectly in the dirt. i took a bad dive and went barrel first into the dirt and shot through it still dead on accurate.
June 8, i put in my cure2 bolt and it will help your accuracy a little but this gun has had ZERO problems and is still the best thing i have bought.
i also have used my etek2 in the rain now and if your worried about water/dirt getting in the back DONT because it didnt get in at all and still was great with accuracy nd consistent without hesitation.
I would recommend this thing to everyone, plus you get what you pay for and its eclipse so you know its great. so if you cant afford a ego then get the etek2. You wont be sorry. i give it a 10 because of all the advantages you get for the price and the amount of air it consumes. i have no choice but to give this sick gat a 10.
10 out of 10

I actually wanted to thank you for your review.
Most of other people had some long, good reviews, but even though yours was short it actually helped me. I have a quick question for you though...you said as your opinion that the trigger was little weird... how do you compare it to the other guns like your Sp Epiphany?

well ive been thinking about buying a star frame, because i just purchased my etek 2 as well. and do you reccommend the star frame with it?
thanks dude. I would have to say yes because of how easy it is to program and thr QEV makes it a bit quieter and a bit more effiecient. another plus about it is how skinny the grips are and it is much more comfortable.
