Products Used:
BT combat- doesn't stand a chance against an etek 3, invert mini- barely lighter, but does not compare when it comes down to accuracy.
Marker Setup: Planet Eclipse Etek 3 Lt w/ halo B hopper, guerilla air compressed air tank, violent series trigger
This gun is great out of the box, but if you really want to, you can get an emortal board and a violent series trigger.
Strengths: Accurate, fires fast, poppet valve, LED lights, pretty durable, good out of the box.
Weaknesses: It has a bit of a "kick". Besides that it's all good.
Review: Overall, this gun is great out of the box, it has a poppet valve so if you over lube anything, it won't matter too much. The LED lights make a really nice touch. The gun is very accurate and very durable(not nearly as durable as a tippman, but it's a speedball gun. What do you expect?). The Etek 3 is very customizable in terms of firing speeds or modes and things of that sort. The Etek 3 does have a tad bit of a kick, but every gun has at least some kick. I would advise getting a fast hopper to keep up with this fast gun! I have mine set on ramping so once I shoot 5 or 6 balls per second it ramps up to 15 balls per second. But it is not limited to that speed in semi uncapped. I love my Etek 3 and I would highly advise it!
Conclusion: I would recommend this gun to someone who wants to stand out of the crowd and go big. This is a fantastic marker, and it works great out of the box. Though when you break it in it works a little better. An Lt is truly a good choice if your on a tight budget. But if you have the cash, get the all metal (AM) it works the same, it just is metal and is a bit more upgradable on the down side to the AM it is very slightly heavier. This is a great marker, once again I'd highly advise it.
