I decided I will save up for an Etek3am because there is a drawing contest at my school and im super confident that my drawing will win and then that will either be another $100 or $200 in my pocket im not sure and then all I would need is like another $100 :dodgy:

I looked at the Etek3LT as well but I dont like the fact how many plastic parts it consists of

please respond back i like opinions. Thanks

Nice one :P

blackcell & snipa hit what I would say, a used PMR. A PM7 would be nice, but I haven't seen one of those under $250... of course I haven't been looking for one either.

You bought the brand, not my allegiance.

Never forget that best = subjective.

In my 14 or 15 years playing, I've had just about everything under the sun. I currently own an ICD FS8 with a Nox board that I picked up for exactly $250. For the money, they're phenomenal markers. Fast shooters with no kick, good construction, middle of the pack efficiency (1400-1500 shots from a 68/4500) and they're built on the same design as the much more modern (and expensive) Dye NT and PE Geo.

Would I recommend one to everyone? No, probably not. You say you already have two guns that are broken. I hate to judge you by that, but I have to. For a player with a penchant for breaking markers and seemingly unable to fix them himself, I'd have to recommend something a bit more foolproof, like a poppet-valved electro. An older Ego or Etek might be the marker for you, or the equivalent Intimidator, Protege, F8, etc. They tend to take more abuse from less-than-tech-savvy owners.

You mentioned possibly saving for the Etek3. If attainable, that could also be a great choice. From what I've seen, they're quite rugged and good little performers.

Best of luck deciding! One amazing thing about paintball is the wide variety of gear we have to choose from. Find the one that's best for you.
