Try playing for a bit without a stock, and you may well find that you don't want one as they serve so little in paintball. The Etha with a tank on gun is going to be less heavy than a "milsim" A-5 with remote.

Whoa, not trying to derail the thread or anything but how did you paint your gun?
Also I'll just chime in and say that I ultimately decided on a G-1 as well. I wanted reliability, efficiency and an upgrade from my Tippmann and it had everything I wanted. It has the functionality of an electric gun in a nice solid exterior. I haven't gotten to play in a game with it yet but I couldn't have seen myself making any other choice.

Oh and don't forget about the fact that you could always upgrade to the Blackheart board on a SP1/G1
As someone who has just installed his blackheart in his G-1 this weekend... is it really worth it? I got it because everyone says G-1 doesn't break paint... and the eyes will make double sure of it, but I was contemplating returning it and getting a hopper or mask. The marker comes stock with decent modes out of the box, and apparently the low-force bolt doesn't break paint so for someone who... say, doesn't really care about the PSP mode and faster bps, is it worth the extra $50 or something that could probably be put off?
I mean, having installed it on my G-1 already I'm not going to benefit from the knowledge much, but I'm curious and if OP is interested in the SP-1/G-1 it may be useful for him to know as well(especially since you have to upgrade the breech on the SP-1 for the eyes).

Well actually I have no choice, the stock board was having problems anyways(semi-auto not firing, and full-auto stuck firing constantly) so I just went ahead and installed the blackheart to save the headache of wasting more time than I already did sitting and debugging it.

Ha! Thanks but its actually an SP-1.
I think at this point the OP has no choice but to go with a G-1. Lol

Finicky? Not at all. I've had my SP-1 for over 4 years now and I haven't even cleaned the thing once and I haven't had a single problem.
