Now - for the ETEK4:


It was everything my Etek3 is with a few minor differences.


The POPS vs. OOPS (I believe it to be the POPS, as the OOPS doesn't look anything like that) had a gas-forward ASA and easier to turn - unable to lose hand-screw.

The Zick2...well, I run one. I didn't see much of a difference when I upgraded to it. It smoothed out the cycle a small amount - but when you're taking fire - "wow this marker got smoother" isn't the first thought in your head.

angled SL3 regulator - is a vReg. I liked the length of the SL2 - felt a little crowded on the SL3 as I was only able to fit 3 fingers on there and wrapped my index on the marker as opposed to just using the vReg as a fore-grip.

Milling - was a bit tighter, bit more angular, but gave the marker a bit more of a boxy feel - not quite Shocker boxy, but felt more like a block of aluminum than 2 stacked tubes.

Board and trigger were the same as stock. Was easier to fire faster in SEMI vs. the PRR - but that could be familiarity taking over...still think the Scythe is a better shape.

And the only other difference - the barrel bag. The provided PE barrel bag - was the same as the 3's - but had a more muted color scheme. Black/grey..no fruity colors.




oh - second note - PRR barrel bag - did not feel quality. I ended up pulling out my standard black Empire one. Proto/Dye one felt cheap.

Well, it's 2017 now and I would like to mention some great guns that are trending nowadays and I would strongly recommend you to check these markers too.

1- Tippmann 98 custom.
2- Tippmann cronus
3- Tippmann A5 which is a improved version of custom 98 with more accuracy.

Further, you can have a look to this guide also I guess its 2017 updated.

Wow, these are just some dreadful reviews

I mean these are baaaaaad, here are some of the highlights for me

If we look at the user’s review, there is one thing you will find is all: ACCURACY.

To add some versatility to the gun, a double tap trigger is constructed.

If Tippmann Cronus is the famous ‘ War Machine’ then Tippmann A5 is ‘IRON MAN.’
If we are going with iron Man references I'll say the a5 is more like the generation 1 suit that he made in a cave, clunky, not designed to be serviced and way larger than it needs to be

The features of Tippman A5 are actually neverending like the threaded barrel. Yes, you heard me right.
Guys a threaded barrel!!!! No way!!!

If you want to dominate in the battlefield, just combine this gun with any cyclone feed system. I am hundred percent sure you will get great results. It also has a long barrel making it more accurate

Yes, in the event that you utilize a gravity bolster container, you *can* cleave.

Truly, however, in the event that you get this firearm, get a shabby electronic container

The Etha bolt highlights double stage quickening with the goal that it gets the paintball at a lower speed before quickening further to push the ball completely into the barrel.

The Pull Poppet that discharges the air from the terminating chamber is driven by another, super-vigorous high weight solenoid that is controlled by the completely customizable PCB.

This weapon has never fizzled me regardless of what I have put it through.

OK I'm done, this is hurting my brain


Typos and wrong words aside this is clearly written by someone or multiple people who do not have experience with multiple markers. This "guide" would be more harmful to a new player than it would be doing them a service

Every marker is only praised, that's not a review, that's a sales pitch
