Thumbs up Opinions?

I am just getting back into paintball after 5 years, and I was thinking about getting a G3, or an Etek 3/Ego. I want to start playing in tournaments again (currently looking for a team lol). I was just wondering what people think of the G3 compared to the Etek 3/Ego.

Thanks

Avoid the G3. Had one, several friends had them. THEY'RE AWFUL. Loud as an Ego, kicks like an Ego, inefficient as an SFT Shocker. Etek/Ego's >>>>>> G3's. Doubly so if it's an Etek3 or an Ego9 or newer.

Word. I'll probably end up getting an Ego, or a DM10 or something. Thanks for the advice. I'm kind of a noob when it comes to this stuff (just getting back into paintball) lol

I agree to not get a standard G3, but a G4 or G3 Spec R (completely different internals from the G3) are both great choices. The FX is in the same price range as the Etek3 and is also a good choice. My brother has a G4, I have a Spec R and we love them both. Incredible guns for the money. Add a Tech T bolt engine and an Ape OLED board and you'll outshoot the Eteks on the field. Just the bolt engine makes a world of difference.
