Ugh. I hate that gun with a passion. Infact I hate all eTeks.

But the important thing is your brother likes it.

I like the Etek 2, I don't really like how the CP reg looks on it but I really like the color of it

Anno or swap the remaining stock gold parts and it would look alot better.

I am with everybody else in saying I don't like eteks.......much rather have a 05/06 ego for the same price or less.

Thanks I guess. shoots great.

I know I know... I dont really like Ego's either and I think they are way over hyped, but whatever.

nice looking etek
Thanks!

Stock etek 1- around 300-350 I would say.

Yea it came with a CP reg from the guy he traded with.

Yea I am not really fond of Eteks either, but this thing shoots great. I was really surprised when I shot it. THe Star frame is really comfortable.

And I know he could have picked up an 05/06 Ego, But I imagine this shoots better, and he plays the resale game a lot, and got this gun for a steal considering how much this goes for on PBN.

Looks nice to me.

I've never shot an etek. I know I don't much care for Egos - just don't feel right to me. But why does everyone hate the Etek so much?

egos are great guns i love my 07. The problem with the eteks is that they are super big and very bulky. My only complaint is that egos dont shoot as smooth as other high enders like matrixes, macdevs , but efficiency and reliability is great. If i was ur bro i would have kept the pm7, they shoot alot smoother and nicer then egos in my opinion.

eTeks are no bigger than an Ego6, or Ego5. I think they're smaller actually.

My guess is the milling of the bodies, and that they come with an LED frame instead of a LCD. So, you get a star frame and a zik kit (think thats what it is) and it makes the ET2 the same as an Ego7.

Not a huge fan of Ego's, personally, but they do feel nice.

I still prefer the feeling of the 05/06 over the 07/08's though. I also prefer the 2k5 Timmy feel over all of the above.

They hate eteks cause they are kind like wanna be egos. They shoots basically the same after a few upgrades though. And Im not a really big Ego fan either.

Eteks bulky and heavy? They are crazy light, and actually feel really comfortable to me. But yes, the pm7 IMO does shoot nicer, but I hate the UL Frame

Correct

Yea, once you get the upgrades on it, it wil be pretty much the same thing as an 07 ego. It kicks alot right now without the zick kit and cure bolt, but once he upgrades that, it should be nice.

And yes, clamshell frames over all other frames.

Seems kinda silly to me to buy an eTek 2 for $675, and throw down another $250 for a Star Frame, $58 for a Cure 2 (Can't find Cure 1's anymore), and $40 for a Zick kit. Of course those are NIB prices, you can get a Ego7 for much less than that used (And next year they will be around $400-$500 used), and an Ego8 for less than that used. I've also seen SL74's go for less than that used.

Just pretty silly to me for someone to spend $1023, on a gun when you can get a better gun stock, that's used, for less.

How much did your brother pick it up for?

Its not that the etek is a bad gun its just that a used ego is better for the same price basicly.

Main difference being the ego has two qevs while the etek has none, thus letting the ego cycle faster.

Haha I would never pay those kind of prices for anything. Technically if I went through it all, he has only paid like 150 for his gun. He won basically most of his set up at a raffle in a tournament.

But he traded his PM7 and a vlocity for it.

The Pumper
08-01-2008, 12:40 PM
He got the bad end of the deal.

I love matrices. Esp with a good hopper.

Modded-Like-Hell
08-01-2008, 12:43 PM
im a little lost... you say he paid 150 for the gun and then you say he traded his PM7 and a vlocity?

The Pumper
08-01-2008, 12:45 PM
He means technically he only paid 150 for the pm7 or for the vlocity.
He traded for it, but before he traded he bought the pm7 or hopper for 150.

Not too sure.

Modded-Like-Hell
08-01-2008, 12:55 PM
ok so he paid 150 for the pm7 and the vlocity then he traded it for the etek, so technically etek was 150 ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

The Pumper
08-01-2008, 12:57 PM
Yeah. But he traded the pm7+vlocity for the etek. ;)

Modded-Like-Hell
08-01-2008, 01:00 PM
yeah i got it now

codymm1014
08-01-2008, 05:52 PM
Why did I say that? Haha. I knew it was gonna confuse someone.

We went to a pump tournament, and there was a raffle. He won a rare woodland camo phantom. He traded that for a Dm5 and vlocity. Traded the dm5 and 30 for a quest. Traded the quest for a russian legion timmy. By some miracle, sold the timmy for 375. Bought a Marq 6 for 425. Traded the Marq for a DM6 and 150. Traded The dm6 and 60 for the oilslcik pm7. traded the pm7 and vlocity for the etek 2. He still has an uppd reloader b so he doesnt really need the vlocity.

Oh and btw, sorry for the double post, but to the pumper- IMO I think the pm7 shot better, but neither of us like the UL Frame, and he plays the resale game so much, and pm7s were dropping in resale like a turd.

The Pumper
08-01-2008, 05:59 PM
So hes just a gun whore?
Well who the hell cares what he gets then. ;)

damn. your brother more of a tester... thats cool. i have some money to spend so im actually looking for PMR, G3, etek, or an older cocker with an oracle on it

Haha yea we are both gun whores in training. We are running out of guns to go after though. Between the two of us we have gone through about 40 guns altogether. And we are only 16 and 14

damn. your brother more of a tester... thats cool. i have some money to spend so im actually looking for PMR, G3, etek, or an older cocker with an oracle on it

Haha yea. Just like to try out new stuff. Btw, I pmed you.

The Pumper
08-01-2008, 06:03 PM
If youre going for a cocker, try a karni. I love those.

Try the G3. Heard great things about those.

Modded-Like-Hell
08-01-2008, 06:07 PM
yeah i was looking at a karnivor... sweet gun

codymm1014
08-01-2008, 06:07 PM
Yea, I really want to try a karni, but I dont want to trade my gun for one, cause karnis are worth nothing for resale. And I already have a Threshy, so I know just what a g3 is like. Just made a thread for the threshold.
