I am looking into getting a new marker. I have my choices down to The reflex rail or drone or the etha. I have shot an etha and like the shot and the trigger. I like the trigger on the drone but not the PSP mode as im playing in some tournaments where PSP 3 shot is allowed. I like the trigger on the reflex but dont like how close the reg is to the trigger frame plus i dont like the eye pipe idea. Havent seen any good reviews on the Etha, Drone, or Reflex rail. (i have watched mikes reviews on all 3)

I personally like the Reflex more since it is using the Dye UL Frame, and is pretty much a Dye DM11. I like the Etha next just for all the features, like the EMC Rail Kit. But I dont like it because the vibration with the stock bolt I've heard that they have a TechT bolt out, and then you can also take out the Spring and that'll lessen the vibration. Then the MacDev I havent shot so I guess you'll have to factor that in.
Hope this helps!

The psp mode on the drone got fixed, I like mine personally. It's a great little simple gun that's really quiet and efficient.

Sorry but the reflex rail is NOT EVEN CLOSE to being a DM11

The only thing those guns basically share is a feedneck and ul airport. The DM is a far superior marker.

That being said I would still take the reflex over the drone or etha.

Also a lot of people hate on the eye pipes but ive never cracked an eyepipe and it is pretty simple to change the detents or eyepipe if you need to

Im leaning more towards etha because it doesnt have the eye pipe and they have a repair center in Rhode Island.

Have you considered looking into an axe, because it smokes all of them.

Okay here's how I'm gonna break this down. I have owned both an etha and a reflex rail, and am about to purchase a drone.
1) the etha is the least smooth and also the loudest. That being said,its by no means a crack or a jackhammer, its a fantastic little gun for the price. I didn't like the panel grips, little thin for my taste. The trigger was alright, nothing too ooze over. Its definitely a great all round performer
2) the reflex rail is probably one of the best feeling guns around. The grip and ul frame on it is fantastic, the trigger is nice (some say too stiff) there's rubber on the reg and the macroline is streamlined. The shot is a nice spool chuff, smooth and quiet. However, if your field fills to 3000,you have to pay by fill or you shoot lots of paint in tournaments, DO NOT GET IT. The efficiency is piss poor. I was stretching it to get to 5 pods on a hot 68/45.
3)The drone is the conclusion I have arrived at, being able to hold it recently. The trigger is nothing to brag about, but its certainly not terrible. Its just shaped a bit oddly, less rounded at the edges. From all I've heard its smooth as if not smoother than the reflex. Its a simple design and it works
Also they fixed the psp mode as of January 13, so if you buy a drone new or one that's used that was purchased after that date, it will have the one second timeout

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