Dark Ego, from Warped Sportz (http://www.warpedsportz.com/darkego.html)

Not much different than the stock 06 Ego. Different milling, lifetime service and "star" trigger frame.

Price is a little high for what you get in my opinion. Any thoughts?

that gun is diffenately the pure secks looks wise, but i think for 500-600 less i could sacrifice a little looks and milling. :p

I dont like the back of the top tube how its slopes down... idk, it just doesnt do anything for me as a whole.

I agree that the extra $437 is ridiculous for just milling. If you're choosing between the stock 06 Ego and the Dark Ego, I'd go with the stocker. You really are getting any extra performance so its just not worth it.

If you really want better looks than stock, you have options.

1)Color kit/Star trigger frame
2)Nexus Ego is cheaper
3)Mantis Ego is cheaper
4)For people like geeZus, the Lady Nexus is cheaper :D

I have yet to see an Ego version that looks different and not just some colored accessories. This one would have been better if it was all black and had the WarpedSportz logo tattoo'ed on.

True, true.

If you really want the truth about it all, I've talked to people who work for Planet Eclipse about which is the better choice and they say its the regular 06 Ego. One guy I talked to actually said the regular Ego is faster than Nexus and Mantis. Also the trigger on the regular one is 4 way adjustable and you have the choice of having magnetic or spring return. The only advantage the Nexus or Mantis have over the regular Ego is they are lighter and the different color options as D said above.

i was just @ my local store tonight (omaha, NE) and a rep from Warped was there (kearney, NE) and had three of them. man, i just about tried selling both my Spyders and was thinking about buying one! B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! light, compact, great colors... but the price tag? a little too high for my tastes.

they do come with both spring and magnetic return if i'm not mistaken. w/o spring feels SWEET! first 25 or so come with a Lucky 15 kit. stock board; which pry doesn't matter so much. overall, looks like a fantastic marker!

" a special gripper with bottle opener for that trip to the podium"

Why in God's green earth would you need a bottle opener on your gun....and really would you use your $1600 gun to open a bottle?

I hate Egos and this is why. Overpriced.

Also i felt like i was giong to break the one i used becuase it was so light.

haha i no, why would you do that, but i can see people doing it. i'd be afraid of it like snaping it off or scratching it.

Got some better pics of this thing and it doesn't look half bad. I still don't think I would shell out half my mortgage for it but still looks nice.

I like them. I've always liked egos. Abit overpriced, but that doesnt effect their looks.
