Ego Etek2, stock barrel
fps consistency in low speed setting (214 fps allowed in Germany), spare part kit included
Kickback, loud, old style shape, bolt exposed to any kind of dirt
I just bougth the Etek2 and cant get used to it. Usually I play a Shocker NXT and the difference is amazing.
The Etek feels light and "handy" but it has really a kick back, while you shoot.
As it is an open bolt marker, its also quite loud.
Third weakness is the bolt, that sticks out of the back of the marker. If some sand or dirt should come in contact to this area, it may harm the gun. I dont know why it is not protected.
On the other hand the bolt ist very easy to strip and clean.
The gun uses a good and easy set up system on the back of the grip. Different shooting modes are available and the ramping is quite nice.
It reminds me of the "Smart Parts Impulse" gun. Kind of old school.
I will sell my Etek2 and try something else.
You have to try this gun before buying it. Lot of people here in Germany like an play it. But if you are used to a silent and soft shooting gun like the shocker, you probably wont be happy playing the etek2.
you realy switched from a shocker to an etek that is sad that you would do somthing like that switching from the quitest gun on earth to an etek. loud is not even a weakness if your using it to play speed ball like you should be. and to get dirt in the bolt the hopper would have to be off and even then you would have to drop the thing you havent used the etek have you realy no way you liked the why would you buy it if you thought the bolt out back was a bad idea and you should know all eclipse gunz are loud and kick a little except sl74 sl8r ego 8 and other zick kit guns so you never bought this gun you probaly have and used ion w/ no ups, gravity hopper and CO2 tank you wish you had this gun you sad little girl :-O< LIES!!!!!!!!!!!

I think that 4 out of ten is unreasonable but if you hate so much then you should sell it to me for cheap. Here is a note, I have ties with a person in Indonesia who could sell me this for $215 slightly used like yours so try to beat it, nevermind this comment if you already sold it.
Dispute: This gun has hardly any kick at least not enough to actually affect the accuracy. Two, dirt getting on the bolt won't damage the gun and if it did then why would they design the gun that way. And three, yes the gun is loud but when you are playing xball it doesn't matter if you gun is loud or not.
