I can't decide on whether or not to get a g4 and a pinokio or ball out and get a etha with a invert too.. my main question is if the invert too would even keep up with the bps of the etha whether that it be on semi or ramping..i could stretch to get the pinokio on the etha but I kinda don't wanna be broke..would the invert keep up or should I just go g4? .....btw I'm new to the whole tourney style gun gameplay of paintball I'm used to scenario style and I'm trying to crossover

Get the G4 used I am pretty sure that several are for sale in BST right now, and get the pinokio.

I don't know about the guns,but I say pinokio either way.Save up a little extra cash before you buy it,so that you aren't broke right away.Some people say it has a large profile with the nose cone due to the fact that it holds 400 rounds,but only if you look at it sideways.

But the thing is if I do that I'm going to need to buy a pod pack too I think with the pinokio I could provably get away with just filling up nose cone whats a good not super expensive pod pack

There are TONS of vs threads of extcy vs whatever. Just go through the pages and read all the posts. Form an opinion, then purchase which you think is better. But just remember, price does not always equal better. I'd go Extcy personally.

Personally I'd take a g4. They do have out of the box problems. But nothing major and it's easily fix'd. But after you work the kinks out. you have great shooter. I'd shoot that over the extcy & the etha all day.

the extcy with a good loader like the pinokio would be your best option, assuming that you already have a good mask

Get whatever gun you want but get a really good loader. Just like mike said, a rotor on a spyder is better than a shake and shoot on an ego... I have personally tested this and you should get the pinokio if you like it. I would personally get a prophecy and a 2012 pmr but that's just me

eXTCy or Etha, just stay away from the G4. My team mate had one. Its nothing but problems. When it actually works its nice, but the other 90% of the time its garbage. The bolt sticks like a mother no matter what you do to it. The damn thing leaks everywhere even though it has been sent in to DP twice. You know that saying "Save a rock, throw an Ion"? Well Its more like "Save an Ion, throw a G4". But he may have just had bad experience/bad one out of the batch.

The Invert TOO will keep up with any gun. Most fields should have a BPS cap at 12.5, the TOO easily does that. Its just a little heavy.

Are you guys seriously recommending the G4?

To the OP, do NOT get the G4, it has too many issues and their Customer Service is absolute horse shit. Pick up the Etha, a Proto Rail, or eXTCy

G4s shoot like dogshit. The etha is better but it has vibrations. Get the extcy.


My team shoots G4s and i hate them all, there is a problem with each of them and its a different problem that reoccurs. I know my way around guns and the G4 is just poorly designed and manufactured in every way

Etha is good because its a tank. I dont like the way it shoots because it vibrates

Extcy- high end internals without all the bells and whistles. Shoots extremely well.

Extcy is ok... Although i have tried them both and prefer metal over plastic...the etha is a great shooter better than the g4 imo.. And even if you are ramping im sure that your field is capping the rof sooo invert too will hold up to 17bps i believe. The pinokio in most aspects of what a hopper should be is better. But i like my halos;).. The g4 is small and light. Like the etha but planet eclipse has a marathon of a track record.... So i say etha and too...

Out of those two, the vibration on the Etha is so bad I would get a G4(I've owned one) over an Etha. If you think I'm exaggerating over the vibration just go shoot one. If I were in your situation and had to go new I would get a 2011 Rail with a pinokio, or my 2nd choice would be to save some more and get into the $500 price range. But I really stress going used over $250, because you can get some very great guns for less than a new mid-end.

Seriously? I own an Etha, there is absolutely NO vibration. Some people may experience a little on theirs, but the G4 also has vibration. The vibration on the Etha is not bad (Nonexistant to me) and the G4 has way to many problems and DP has bad Customer Service

LOL ethas are sooo terrible! The spring in them goes bad after like 5 cases. Three of the guys on my scenario team bought ethas, and all three had the spring go bad in less than a month. The trigger isn't that great either. It feels good in the hands, thats all its got. I'd take an extcy, a rail, or a g4 over it anyday.

I would stay away from G4's. I've seen more of them have problems than nearly every other gun out there. Xtcy is a great little gun. This way you can have a Z2 or Rotor, Profits, Good Tank (You should have a good tank at this point). Now that you have all that you can work on soft goods.I don't even use Elbow pads, Slider shorts, or knee pads so I wouldn't worry about them. Get some Empire/Dye soft goods and you'll be set. Later on I would look into saving maybe $100 just to buy useful things like swabs (I recommend the exalt barrel maid), extra pods, orings, lube, etc to keep in your gear bag
