A lot longer in speedball terms means about two years.

Nah, Etek isn't a yearly refresh, and most of the parts from ETek 1 still fit the Etek 2. So most likely Etek3 parts will still be available for 3 or even 4 years since it'll be probably another 16 months still until the Etek 4 comes out.

etek 3 is considered a mid level although i dont know why, it is a full LPRed poppet just like the ego line, but the difference is it will have a parts run of around 5 years with a much larger aftermarket than the ego line which can change out any part at any point a new marker comes out

The noid is the reason they consider it mid-range. The Ego noid is one designed completely around being small, and FAST. It is actually capable of cycling over 60 cps...FAR beyond what the ego 9/X can cycle since they don't have QEV's. The Etek noid (still the same on the 3 as the 1 & 2 just in a different housing now), is designed more for durability, and max cyclic rate in the 1 or 2 was only about 20 (full) cps, in the 3 because of the new housing it's up to ~25 cps.

its over 15 so i dont see why that would bump the etek 3 into the mid range category, whoopti doo, the ego9 can get to 60cps, who cares? ill take a durable noid that can still manage 15bps over one that cranks out 60cps anyday

So would I..that's why the Etek3 AM w/ Emmortal board is my favorite Ego to date. I'd trade my 9 for an AM in no time if they made a blue/black AM.

black/black, grey/black, digicam, and some other cammo are the only colors.
