The Planet Eclipse E-Tek EGO is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Cheap(for how good it is)
Kind of loud stock (UL makes it 10x quieter)
I ordered this Monday, got it wed and finally got to play with it today. This gun is amazing, it shoots with ease. I was hitting probably around 13bps with and if you try a little more you can hit 15 after adjusting the trigger.
Today was my first day to actually play with it and it shoot like a dream. it weighs 2.4lb with the barrel so you can whip it around easy. The reg was like +/- 10 but that's because i have to break it in. the stock barrel is really accurate for being stock. the gun didn't skip a beat ether, every time i pulled the trigger it shoots. The best part NO CHOPS at all with shooting a Whole Case. And there is no kick.
Everything on the gun stock is very nice. Some people suggest a new board, i see no reason to, it has all the tornement setting you need it has a caped semi and uncap semi. It really easy to program(like aVirtue) and you can hit 15bps easy.
The grips are pretty slim but the hybrid are still smaller but i like the ego grips.
The barrel is very good, might get a UL or Deadly wind barrel
ASA is a on/off
Bolt is nice, but i think i might get the cure bolt because that's the only thing i think would make a difference.
the trigger is a really nice stock trigger, no side to side play at all and you can adjust the spring tension, pre travel and the stopper screw.
The only thing that worries me is the open bolt. my friend also got a Etek and he did a lot of sliding. but on they field we play at its all dirt no grass, so dirt got into the bolt and scrached up the bolt. u just have to be careful if you play on a dirft field but if you play on grass or turf your fine.
Its really easy to maintain also. You can do a quick maintaince and pull the ram out using a allen key, and unscrew the LPR and clean that.
Also People complain that its not an optic trigger(its a micro switch) saying it is slower well this is the easiest and fastest gun i have ever shoot with a micro switch.
As of right now this is the best gun i have ever shoot.If you want the speed and quality of an Ego for $700, this is the gun for you.

Vikings-faster then the ETek
05-06 EGO-more features and also faster then the ETek
04-05 Cyborg-pretty much a draw..both are light and plenty fast enugh
03 1/2 milled Excalibur
Modified DM5 frame with an Acid Customs Trigger
PL Scepter barrel kit
Halo with v35 board
New barrel. New trigger. Possibly a CCU kit if you want a different look.
Light, fast, accurate, quality craftsmanship.
I opened the metal case this marker comes with and was very happy with the appearence. I removed the gun, screwed on the barrel and imediatly noticed how light it was. It comes with an on/off, so that was a nice touch. I screwed in a tank and put my Halo on it, and ripped off 150 or so shots....no breaks, chops, or skips.
Then I started messing with the setting. This is where things got a little tricky. The manual tell you exactly how to adjust the setting....but it was still a little confusing at first. Once you adjust them a couple times, it becomes second nature. Mine didnt come with a manual, but there is a downloadable one on the internet, so this was no big deal. A big plus is that there is alot of upgrades for this marker. So it will be pretty easy to customize it to your likings.
I would recomend the ETek mainly because of the value. You get a higher end marker for a mid range price.
I find this unit to be extremely easy and fun to use. It has the ability to send one or a line of paint in your opponents direction. Combined with the right barrel it is very accurate with minimal kick-back .
The gun is very lite, and easy to break-down.
I highly recommend this unit for anyone new or experienced in this hobby.
etek ego w/ virtue and ultralite
halo b w/ victory
45/4500 fiber wrapped tank
virute makes it soooo much faster and consistant
comfortable (feels good in hands)
Noid needs to be cleaned and lubed basically maintained a lot
so baically its a really good gun. feels great holding it. stock board is ok. uncapped semi CAN rip but if u want real speed get virtue
i really like this gun because of the feel and it's preformance. you have to clean and lube a lot but its pretty easy to strip. the manual i handy.
email for any questions on the gun i might have an answer.
(my gun is extra cool cuz i got it for 612 om ebay before ppl knew about eteks lol)
If u really want an ego but dont happen to have 1000+ in your back pocket the etek shoots just as nice but doesnt have a display screen.....boo hoo u have to know the leds.
Well this gun is ammazing fast. Its pretty accuarte for a stock barrel only bought a barrel because the field sells small paint.
speed - welll its pleanty fast for anyone. It has 5 different modes 1semi 2 semi capped 3psp ramping 4like psp 5you have to go7bpsand gose to 15bps. Modes 2-5 are capped at 15 thats fast enough i think.
its pretty good on air i get pretty close to a case of paint on 1 fill. pretty much the only reason i fill up is just to be safe.
accuarte- it was pretty accuarte with the stock barrel. i bought a stiiffi and its much better only because the paint at my field is small.
This gun is fast! the first day i got it i was in love. you customize ur trigger to suit you better. its so amazing. the one drwaback was that their was no lcd so its kinda different.
It was kinda different way of shooting the first time. it wasnt perfectly accurate like i thought. but after breaking it it. it was a beast!
This gun is really good ive used it and im getting it 4 christmas i love it it shoots fast and accurate out of the box its pretty much an ego just with a couple differences .It shoots brilliant i was rocking at a pole 50 feet away and no paintballs missed.
I suggest anyone that is not a Noob and could afford it to get it.
ETek Ego (Night)
Viewloader Revolution with X-Board
50/3000 Worr Gass HPA Tank
Bore too big for the field paint (only with local field?)
Alright, so I made the jump from using a POS VL Orion, to using this. The ROF was staggering at first, but I've gotten used to it. This thing is fast, much faster than anything I've ever used, also much much lighter. The accuracy isn't great, but thats because the field paint is too small for the bore. The case it comes in is not only impressive to noobs, its also cool, and handy, with room for the gun, oil, tools, manual, and room for a 14" barrel, as well as 3 more slots, for smaller barrels, fronts, and backs. The LED control is very easy to use, in fact my friend found the LCD on the 06 ego harder to use. One thing I don't like though, is I only get about 1/3 of a case off a 50/3000 fill, and my hopper isnt fast enough to keep up with this...
This gun is great, worth every penny, especially if you wan't an Ego and can't afford an 06 or 07.
ive tested alot of different guns in this price range like:
dm5 and 6
and ive owned a
looking to buy high end
barrel maybe but not a necessity
It kicks a lil but not much
ok well ive been gun hunting at my field, and i've always liked ego. So i decided to try the etek out.Man, With a box of 2 week old X-ball bronze paint, i toke it to the chrono. and, without a single adjustment, 290, 292, 289, 291. Maybe it was the fact that the guy who let me test it is a gun tech but still thats almost perfect. During games, i couldn't believe this things amazing speed. Right now, my only problem was the kick. It wasn't bad, but it was enough to make you notice. Unfortunately, it doesn't have some of the add-on goodies that other egos have, but it makes up for it in its handling, price, and all out carnage on the field.
Although i only tested it, i've fallen in love with it. I give it a nine because of two reasons.
props to Planet Eclipse for another great marker.
When I received the etek I pulled it out of the box and made an adjustment to the trigger. I did not change any other settings when I first played with it. I was very impressed with how smooth and fast it was. The barrel is very good for stock, but I still prefer a barrel kit of some kind. As with all new regs I was bouncing around a little on the chrono, that even out after I break it in.
I think this is the best marker for the price. You also get some of the best customer service. I give it a 9 because it can take some upgrades.
9 out of 10
