Im getting both used for a really cheap price.
Etha-$220
Fx-$280

I think they are both great deals but, i need help i prefer the spoolie design and the etha replicated that the most being a inline poppit and I like the small compact size of the Etha but, people say the shot quality is shit and and the Fx has a better shot and the OLED is very cool. I only have $280 to spend and I just sold my G4 and in need of a new gun. I DON'T WANT A AXE!!!! THEY ARE UGLY AND FEEL LIKE SHIT IN MY HANDS SO PLEASE DO NOT RECCOMEND ONE!!!!

Flip the FX if you can and buy a Bob Long vice.

If you ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY HAD TO, I would say Etha.
Some locals I played with last time (like when the Etha came out) said the Etha felt different, you could feel it moving but it didn't really make a big difference.

Otherwise yeah buy the FX and flip for a Vice.

I mean I'd buy the Etha for $220 and sell it back for $300, $80 profit.

Then I would buy something worth $300.
But nobody wants to buy an Etha.

Well, they go new for 500 so you can sell for 300 and then buy a Vice or trade straight for a Vice, if they accept.

The FX really isn't too bad of a marker. The board on it is a little difficult to get adjusted to but once you get the hang of it you can do some really sneaky shit with that board.

I really don't see where their is this huge hatred towards the FX.

Etha shoots fine once they are broken in.
Shot quality-etha
Efficiency-fx (2 extra pods)
Sound-etha
Kick-same, etha vibrates less
Reliability-etha
Weight-wash, most likely fx
Trigger- fx
Grips- fx (wraparound rubber beats panels)
Asa-ethas is kinder on threads and comes straight out
End: etha
Also if you like spools, why not try to find the 2012 reflex rail used? It has great ergos and the shot is nice and quiet. Subpar efficiency though. Maybe 6 pods, closer to 5.5

Feedback: +3/0/0 Etek 3 LT LNIB

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

.0I love the reflex rail but I dont have enough for it...I have around $280 and i havent seen a reflex go for that, EVER!

I have owned and used both extensively....

Shot quality- About the same. Both have a small amount of vibration when you shoot. Neither really seem to bother me (or anyone else that I loaned the guns out to)
Effiency- Very close, but I'd say FX by a hair
Sound- out of the box, about the same; if you put a TechT Hush bolt in the FX, it becomes noticeably quieter
kick- They're electropneumatic paintball guns, not cannons, damnit
reliability- Etha would probably take more abuse; but both would be fine given relatively routine maintenance
weight- Hard to tell
overall better gun- depends on what you're looking for: if you want something reasonably reliable that you can adjust to your own preference, the FX is the better of the two. IF you want a bulletproof design that is better lubed up and then left alone, get the Etha.

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.

Im going with the Etha, i just would hate for my gun to stop working at the field, I mean my G4 never did that and I like Dangerous power but, I just like the inline poppit design because it resembles a one tube spoolie design.
