Does the Etha have any kick? Thanks.

EDIT: Ok, I know that obviously every gun has kick, but I mean is it smooth?

Shooting in your backyard you might notice some, on the field you wont feel it.

All paintball guns have kick.

Not as far as I'm concerned. Of course, my previous marker was a Tippmann A5, so what do I know?

I can shoot my Etha one handed on ramp and while I do get some barrel rise it doesn't throw ny aim off. Holding like normal you wont notice any kick.

Its not the kick, its the vibration. It has A LOT of vibration for a marker at that price point. But its still a good gun(:

Im gonna have to disagree with this, but my Etha wasnt new when I bought it. As many have said, break in changes a lot in how the Etha shoots.

If you put the Etha on a scale with all the other guns offered, it will be near the bottom on vibration/ping/kick/whatever you want to describe it as. People think that some Intimidators ping, hah, go shoot an Etha. However, it is still a good gun backed by PE.

Minimal kick and with the springless poppet insert that should come with it makes the ping go away

My Etha has been pretty much broken in and I don't notice any more vibration than with an Axe. (And yes, I shot them side by side)

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.
