I would suggest a used ego. Very little can go wrong with a well maintaned ego, mostly because there isn't a lot to maintain on them.

It seems as though the Macdev Drone DX has been a popular gun choice lately,but I have no experience with it.

All guns have the same accuracy ;)
Vice or marks are awesome guns, eteks aren't bad, but there is better

essentially passing up a vice is like passing up a g6r.

Silly troll.

The Etek 4 is an awesome marker and so is the Axe. Basically at that price range there are a crap ton of guns to choose from. If your heart is set on the Etek 4 go and get it, however try test shooting the AXE, Reflex Rail & Macdev Drone. To not test fire all markers wouldn't be helping you but hurting you in the long run. For a backup/lender marker I choose the Etek 3 because it is durable and easy to maintain. The other marker I was deciding between was the Axe and the ONLY reason I didn't choose that was its programing ability (before shockwave) and how it felt in my hands. The AXE was most definitely the smoother shot. However, I am more than happy with how my Etek has performed and everyone I lend it out to loves it as well.

It seems like OP has mind his/her mind up with the etek4, go nuts!

But in all honesty try the axe and if you like the etek more then go for the etek. However if you like the axe then do as everyone says and go axe

Seems like you like the hand cannon lol. My vote would have been axe and save the other money for paint or other goodies.

Planet Eclipse came out with a great marker a year ago called the Etha. It can be used for speedball and woodsball, and you can buy an EMC kit for like 75$ that makes it look tactical, and makes it easier to mounht flashlkights, scopes, etc onto it. The Etha alone is 350 or 395 and comes with parts used on geo's, and a hard case

MacDev Drone DX, DP Fusion FX, Alien Independence, or Empire Axe. I personally have used all of these to some degree, save for the Alien Invasion, but it seems rather good. I loved my brother's MacDev Drone DX, and have been using his Axe for some time now. Both are excellent shooters. Probably the best in that price range for $500, all you have to decide is whether or not you want an inline poppit or a spool-valve marker.

I'm glad that you like it. the g5 seems pretty bad-ass.:)

It doesn't matter what other people think about your gear as long as you like it.
