I ran into a problem. I can get thse Egos:

06 Nexus stormtrooper stock.
Etek Ego with CP barrel, CP reg, Cure bolt, Hybrid ASA, and Critical trigger.
06 PEVs Ego with Dye UL barrel, Hybrid grips, Cure bolt, and NDZ trigger.

Which one would you recommend? I can't decide. And don't say, "That one has more up get that one!!!!" I need to know which one ill be a better purchase in the long run.

The basic marker will work the same.

Triggers & grips are a personal thing.

I think it would come down to the barrel, reg & color really.

Too bad you can't take the CP barrel, reg and Hybrid ASA and throw it on the 06 PEV, that would be a sweet setup. But from what you have to choose from mudders right their all about the same, I'd probably pick the PEV, although I prefer CP components but I'm not a fan of Eteks.

i would go with the Pevs or the Nexus but you should try to shoot them all and decide for youself.

11-29-2007, 07:13 PM
I wish I could shoot them. I'm buying online. I think I'll go with the Nexus because the Etek is just not as appealing to my eye and the PEV has a weird flow with the parts and the color. So I think I'll get the Bexus. Thaks for your input people!

btw, what's the price on these, and yeah i guess pic's would have been helpful too :D

Here are the pics:



I do think that the Nexus is the best for me though.

yeah i like the stormtrooper nexus, but what website is this cause i cant find any of those anymore

Get the Nexus. Its the best looking and will hold value the best. The others don't really have upgrades, since nothing they have is an improvement over stock, other than personal opinion.

:yeahthat: Nexus is the only Ego I'd consider owning. Personally though, why an Ego? They aren't THAT much better than other guns out there... despite what the majority of ballers think.

I'd go with the Nexus as well.

All markers in that price range are going to be basically the same, its going to come down to preference. I personally love Ego's and think the perform awesome. When I bought my 06 I looked at all the markers out there. I spent at least 2 hours at the shop messing around with the various markers in that range. To me the Ego just felt better than the rest of them. I'm sure that there are plenty of people who will argue that they are way better than all the rest of the markers available today, and will have very good points to prove that they are. At the same time, I'm sure that there are just as many people who will say the same thing about other markers like A1s, Marqs, Borgs and DMs. All and all its always going to come down to personal preference when you get into the high end markers.

I don't know... he might be able to swoop in on the etek at a low price, toss on the new etek 08 kit on it and have it shooting really well. But unless it's REALLY low price on the etek (like a 400 difference) I'd get the nexus.

Yeah I'm getting the Nexus as far as I know. I'm still open to any other gun that catches my eye though. Thanks for all the input guys.

Get a Borg then... a nice '07. ;)

Hey... you live near Rohnert Park... my GF's aunt lives there. :)

Custom milled sweetness
Once you go Borg you never go back :)

I'd go with the stock Nexus, but that's just me...

Definitely the Nexus Stormtrooper...

12-03-2007, 04:00 PM
timbertiger, that is one sick looking 'borg. Nice pick up. And I have already decided on the Nexus! But as I said above, I may get something else but it's very unlikely.

12-03-2007, 04:25 PM
I agree, go with the Cyborg. Ithink you should get a nice up'd '06 'Borg, the 06's are suppose to cycle fater than the 07's, and better looking IMO

12-03-2007, 11:17 PM
... I said above, I may get something else but it's very unlikely.
If there's any chance at getting you to shooting a Borg, I'll keep on it. ;)

I have an '06, and nothing else I own comes close to its performance... not even the Spimmy! :gasp: I have only had one small issue with my Borg since I bought it, which was fixed by turning up the LPR a little bit. They're fairly cheap, too. I got mine for $500 with a Pulse. :D Heck, with the extra change you get from the Borg over the Nexus, you could buy a hopper and a tank to go with it.

I'm not saying that that's the only choice out there. For $550 you could get a Gen5 Timmy, a Protege. They're supposedly really good as well... but what else can you expect from Bob? Heck, for that price range you could also get a DM6, or a DM7. Expand your horizons from only an Ego and you might just find something that will fit you better. If you don't find something better, oh well, at least you know that for sure.

Yeah I've been thinking about that alot today. I still have like 22 days so it's not decided yet.
