ETEK 3! The Fx is just expensive because of the board. Besides that, its not worth it.

FX great board alot quieter than the Etek 3.

Unless your going used I would suggest putting this in the VS. forum or the equipment advice forum. These are mid-end guns that cost $500.

Put this in your Sig if you are under 18 and pay for all your own Paintball Gear.

^^^people put questions like this in this forum all the time. Im getting an etek 3 in about a month. personally i would make my choice between the etek and the empire axe, and the chioce would be made depending on if you play psp or semi more often. etek for semi, axe for psp

Etek gets points for reliability. Many people disregard this thinking "I can just fix it when something goes wrong", but how many times do you see a etek 3 thread in equipment advice and questions on how to fix one on the forums?

etek 3 is a god of a marker
blows fx out of the water
backed by the best company in paintball and quality is un matched in its price point

FX
efficiency - fx
quality - fx (all metal but it is a personal preference)
consistency - tie
customer service - etek (PE is such a huge company)
packaging - etek
maintainance - tie

overall i prefer the fx.
you get $500 going into the gun and not the packaging
if having a gun case really matters to you that much just carry around the fx's box.

i hope this helps

Recently, I bought the DP FX.

Why?

A big reason for me was that my local proshop owner can tech either marker since he sells both DP and PE markers and carries parts for them.

At that point, it cam down to the merits of the individual markers.

For me, the biggest deciding factor was price. I was able to get an FX new, for $400.00.

However, one thing I would like to point out is that both markers are very similar. The only real differences are that the FX is a little more efficient, has an OLED, and has a little bit more vibration as you fire it. However, if the issue is that you cannot control the marker as it fires due to that bit of vibration... you may be in the wrong sport.

So, at that point, go with the marker you like better, alright?
Still trying to find cover...

Ive played with my friends etek and it was amazing. felt good, shot well, and easy to use.

the FX has a fancy board, and looks alright but its just not as comfortable.

I've shot the etek 3 lt, nice gun. Shot the DP FX same day right after. Liked the DP FX a little more. Went FX. To be honest, at this point, get the gun you like the most, they are both good guns backed by good companies (still don't know why people think DP has crappy CS, I never have any problems, however, I never call them anymore cause I don't have any problems with my g3 and doubt I will when my FX gets here). If you can, go ask at your proshop if you can test fire both guns, or find some people that will let you play a round using theirs. No matter how many people respond to this thread, there will be a different answer.

Btw, i love your signature Rob-Juskiewicz-PB

honestly the FX is a hit or miss out of the box, its might have noid/eye cover/rammer/feedneck/fitting problems or it might be one of the few godsend DP markers that is good out of the box. I hate to say it, and I really do! But i would have to go with an ETEK 3 used, or have to find an FX from someone with no out of the box problems to fix. DP is just horrid with quality control. Some examples include the G4, G3, and FX. How do i know the problems guess who's teching one right now!
