Well, I rode up to my local store today to ask the guy that owns it what he would choose between an ego7 and a vice
Keep in mind, he's been playing paintball for 20 year and played pro for many years. He knows stuff
Anyway he said most likely the ego, but he did have trouble deciding. This was an 07 ego I asked about, so I can only guess he'd say ego8 hands down in this case.
-He said that Egos are more reliableand easier to maintain
-He's never chopped a ball using an ego. He's been using egos since like 05 or so and uses them 99% of the time
-He played with the vice this weekend and chopped 80 balls in 4 cases. He's pretty sure he's got it figured out though.

Just what a pro told me :D

i would like to know from a different perspective tho too, cause i heard its REALLY easy to maintain a Vice and that it ALMOST NEVER chops, i would just like to hear from someone else too, but that is a good side of an opinion, which would be experience with the guns to back up the opinion

to defaults1:
Yeah I don't think he was saying that Vices are hard to maintain, just Egos are a little easier
As far as the chopping, I'm with you. Never heard anybody complaining of chopping. But he did say hes got it fixed

Oh and in my last post, I never said my opinion haha
I would choose the vice. I LOVE teching guns, it's my main job on my team
So I wouldn't mind the tiny bit of extra work
Also, my team practices out in the desert, so there's no refill stations
Thus, the efficiency is a big deal for us.
Also, that 4-eye system really appeals to me. I just think it's amazing genius. Even if I don't get it right away, I'd like to have the option
And it's Bob Long. Nuff said B)

I love Bob Long, but if we're comparing those two i'd have to say the Ego. But if a Closer was thrown in i'd the that, as long as the trigger was replaced, i personally don't like the stock one

EGO IS BY FAR A SUPPERIOR DESIGNED MARKER. AS FOR EFFICENCY -THE VICE WINS THIS STOCK , BUT ADD A HIGH PRESSURE VALVE TO THE EGO8 AND IT WILL BE PAR. MUST ADMIT THEIR AINT NOTHIN LIKE THE ORIGINAL INTIMIDATOR AS A VICE IS THOUGH! BUT EGO IS JUST WAY MORE REFINED FROM AN ENGINEERS POINT OF VIEW.

The Viceis an Amazing Gun but vs.an 08 I would have to go with the ego. I would take a vice over the 07 though.

Vice simply because of the price tag. Use the extra money to buy paint to improve skill.

i am pretty sure he meant ego 08 considering thats what the title of the thread says. i would probably go ego, mainly because i like when my guns come with lube, orings, tools and manuals.

That is what I meant. But I think I am going to go get a second job at Mcdonalds and save for an 09 Ego.

We're not in it for the money, or the fame. The girls, sex and drugs don't come to us, like other professional sports. We play day-in day-out, sun rise to sun set, sunny or rainy; because we love to play. People question us for our devotion, our obsession to this weird sport; a sport they see as a hobby. It doesn't matter what they think; we play because we love to, because we were born to be a pro paintball athlete

Having owned a few Egos, used an 08 ego for a day, and owning a Vice, I would say the Vice wins hands down. Simple fact: Egos kick, Timmies kick less :) Also, my Vice gets around 1600 shots off a 68/4500 (That's with the LP valve). Another reason for the Vice, the 4C eye system (once installed) is pure genius. As a bonus, Bob Long has excellent customer service- Some of the best in the industry. Overall, Vices are more efficient, smoother, and quieter than most egos.

IMO, Vice all the way.

i used an ego8 for a while then i tested out the vice and i was between the two guns but i ended up buying the vice. I didnt only go for the vice cuz of the price.

Vice Ego

barrel: +

board: = =

eyes: +

grips: preference

trigger: +

regulator: = =

asa: +

feedneck: +

bolt: +

guns are evenly matched in my opinion its all preference vice gets better efficiency and it softer on paint, ego shoots a little faster.

I have only chopped 4 balls in my vice after shooting 10 cases through it and 2 of them were when i shot with my barrel condom on and the other two were barrel breaks from when i got dirt in the barrel.
Paintball: is my sport, is my passion, my life.

It's all preference, but Bob Long Vice is $750, and the Ego 08 is around $1000. I think Bob Long makes a superb gun. Bob Longs are known for being easy on paint, I think the vice's milling just look more appealing. They are both excellent high end guns
Paintball guns dont shoot people, if im lucky i do.

I have to go with the vice, the gun is just a beast. i have been using mine pretty heavily and it just doesn't fail. I haven't had a chop yet. The only problem i had was with the grips, in the middle of a game the grip decided to come off. As for the ego's great guns but there is not enough difference between the ego and the vice to justify paying the difference.

Understand haters are gonna hate you regardless. Get that outta your head, where haters aren't hating on you. You got to be grateful, you need haters. What are you complaining about, what do you think a haters job is. To hate! So let them do there job!

haha yeah. See your kinda wrong... the monster balls wouldn't break... the bolt would...

Monster balls- Cheap reballs, good for about 3 or 4 shots at a sheet of ply wood. only $25 a case! can be found at your nearest Wal Mart.
