This group is for everyone who:

- remembers when Egos were Timmy knock offs and not the other way around
Example: "Vice?!?! Thats just a knock off Ego"

- laughs at what E.G.O really stands for
First 10 people who PM me what EGO used to stand for gets royalty

- hates it when people get huge egos because they own an Ego

- thinks people with big egos are destroying paintball when they make a new player feel like a newb for not owning an Ego.
Example: "SP1!?!? What a piece of garbage! Go get an Ego and don't talk to me until you do"


Feel free to add some rules or your own story to this club

If you want a custom number, tell me.

shortly after this picture was taken this past weekend, a 12 year old asked me if this was an 05 Ego. I laughed so hard and then told him it was an ICD B2K2. i died a little when he said he'd never heard of ICD...


Lmao!

Why is there so much Ego bashing?


Egos are great guns, its just what they stand for is what's sooo aggravating.

Also its about the type of people that shoot Egos too. They've become a stereotype in my mind. Which doesn't mean that EVERYONE that shoots an Ego has an huge ego, but... its just like saying everyone who shoots an Ion is a noob.

so basically a timmy clan? or just people who dont like egos?


People who just don't like Egos.

I shoot a Promaster and a handful of Autocockers

So basically. this is a members club. for people who just hate ego owners because they have egos......so. if i said you could have my ego you would turn it down in fear of becoming some sort of infamous dick head at your field? that is absolutely retarded, egos are good guns. period. and just because someone owns one they are a dick? that's hardly fair

well thats a bit harsh, i just see most of them as people with nothing better to spend money on
or some 30 year old fat guy that hit a mid life crisis and decides to spend his money on the best marker he can buy, goes to walkons with 10 cases of paint and just sprays the day away
ego's are way over priced
most guns shoot the same
theres no real difference

I never said they were bad guns. I'm just saying I'd rather play with someone that owns a vice or bushy, than some of the "ego" generation kids out there. I know its not fair, but there must be some truth to it.

i dislike alot of the ego owners too.. they named the gun very appropriately. in my recent experiences ego owners talk the most trash tend to be younger and show a complete disregard for the sports history.
The lesson here is love your gun dont give a shit about what people say about it.. if it fits you keep it if not move on. I get enough crap from kids who think autocockers are shit when most have never shot one. Every angel I ever shot was smooth but they were out of my range so i went with an autococker instead. Now I have a couple and they are my babies. Love the sport Love your gun whatever it may be and Love yourself .. maybe not in that order. CockerOwnerClub

I remember one of the first X-ball series I played back in NY(2005) where the first place team got EGO's. Not a single team wanted them. They might be like a pound lighter than my cocker but thats it.

Egos are great guns, but this club isn't to bash Egos because of their quality.

I'm a HUGE Eclipse fan. Man, back in the day, you had to give props to them for their custom cockers, and the Eblade!

But I think you understand what I'm talking about, so welcome to the club ;)

Welcome to the club.

And sorry, EGO doesn't stand for Everyone's Got One. But nice try tho. Try to find an old ego ad in a magazine or something.

I remember when everyone had a cocker or a timmy and people loved them and others bashed them.

I enjoy shooting my ego and as far as price goes it shoots on par with all other similarly priced guns and higher priced markers, but for the most part it's cheaper.

Bob Long's guns may perform amazing and may be cheaper, but he didn't invest as much time in advertising and manufacturing as Planet Eclipse and Dye have. He just doesn't have that time of money to blow. Part of the price of these higher guns is there advertising costs.

You're really just hating on people for following a tread, but more likely than not people buy Egos/Geos because they perform well and they're happy to buy them.

It seems more like you're hating on the Ego trend because you feel that you need to be a non-conformist, and if a newb can own one then it's uncool.

There will always be haters no matter what, and not necessarily for a logical and reasonable reason.

- laughs at what E.G.O really stands for

- hates life when you see an 8 year old with an Ego 9

- bonus ball people who have Egos because they have way too big of an ego

- Dont know what E.G.O stands for.
- I do hate it when you see a young player with any brand new spanking top of the line marker who has just started playing, especially when its a Ego 9 because ive had to work so many hours to buy one and 4/5 years of playing.
- I dont bonus ball anyone, I just like to watch their face when they realize that they aren't as good as they thought they were, no matter what they shoot.

- Not really a fan of this thread, sounds too much like a "bash ego owners" thread. Especially as I had a Promaster before my Ego 9. I dont like being painted by the same brush but I know its going to happen and will always happen so long as I use my Ego.

Thats a great speech. Too bad it doesn't apply to anything this group stands for.

- laughs at what E.G.O really stands for

- hates life when you see an 8 year old with an Ego 9

- bonus ball people who have Egos because they have way too big of an ego

- Dont know what E.G.O stands for.

This thread is here, hopefully, to stop the egos some people have when playing the sport, not to bash the Ego itself. I'm going to refine a few of the club details, since some of my points are being mistaken.

I don't really like EGO's. I've shot a couple of them, held A LOT of them and never could like them. It may be due to the fact that I am used to Angel's or PE made them for little kids who say, "Mommy! Daddy! I want an EGO... Everyone has one."

Seen it happen a million times...

Had a buddy who loved his autococker to death, then snagged an Ego for real cheap on Ebay... he was never the same.

The make sports cars every year as well.....some are driven a bit ....others are stored as object de art.
Let face it the SL's are as Mike put it as close to where art meets form and function. :rolleyes:

Ok then I'll try buying an SL8R for $ 500 (cdn) next year. :lol: ....yes it's true sarcasim is hard to get on the net.

Ciao.


But not all sports cars are worth to keep. Like the only one worth keeping right now would be the 2009 Viper (and ACR) because they won't be making a Viper ever again.

Well I've got my share of toys.
Now I may get a SL94 just for the fact that I've always enjoyed good industrial design.....and thing that shoot.

As I mentioned be it my Flyed A1 ,Full House Shocker or Custom A5...you rarely find someone with just one marker.
If you ask most players what's their favorite marker is......the answer is easily "the next one".

Ciao.

P.S.
Now I see that your from Texas......well the boys from STI( Goergetown TX) have built 3 of my other toys and I enjoy them from both the stand point of design and function.


Ciao.

Having little kids parents buying egos is actually a compliment. Spoiled kids get their parents to buy them anything, they want the best of the best which is an ego. Its no different when a parent buys their 16 year old a brand new 25,000-30,000 dollar car. The kid doenst know how to take car or the gun. Heres a simple test to see if a person really deserves there gun. Ask them about some of the specs of the gun [bps, modes, threads, grip, and etc]. Then ask them to take it apart quick. You can see how they react to these questions.

I'll join up too. I've sent to larger scenarios (I'm a woodsballer by choice) and I play very aggressive front. I rock an Ion (Yeah, I said it) and have heard NUMEROUS times after a game "Man, you could've had us all if you had something better like an Ego." I would rather take the amount of money I would spend for an Ego and get something wonderful like a Tac One or something from PPS. Just because it has a big sticker price doesn't mean it's going to put paint on someone any different than my PGP or Tracer. It just looks pretty doing it.

This is my marker. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my marker is useless. Without my marker, I am useless. I must fire my marker true. I must shoot straighter than the opponent who is trying to mark me.
