My friend is getting into paintball and he has everything but a good gun.... He wants the extcy..... Should I tell him to spend the extra money to get a etha?

No, I'd take an extcy over an Etha any day...

I don't know to much about the eXtcy, but, I do have the Etha and I think it's a great gun. It's super simple to use, very easy to maintain, and it's really durable. Plus planeteclipse customer service is really good, I've had my gun for over a year and have not had a problem with it once.

I'd suggest getting the Extcy and spending the rest on a really good mask (Eflex, I4, whatever fits your friend best).

That's a good setup; I would tell your friend to either buy an Extcy new or a used Axe.

So your marker has never had a problem, then how did you end up dealing with P.E.'s customer service? Don't mean to come off as a jerk but a lot of people go right to P.E. having the best customer service. They have very good customer service (I have used it) but personally I have had the best CS experience with GoG/DLX. As far as which marker to choose I would go with the Etha, I think you get more bang for your buck.

PE sent out springless poppet kits to everyone that had their marker registered whether or not they were having problems.

I use an etha and I love it..... I've never shot the extcy though.... That's why I started this thread I new the etha was a great marker already though..... It's never given me problems

It was because of that ( sending out the spring less poppit ) that makes me think their customer service is great. You are right thou, I should have said IMO about the customer service.
