I have research around for new markers and have narrowed it down to a couple choices. I want a light marker, easy to clean, tournament lock, and around $400.
My Choices are:
PMR $275
Invert Mini $325
Used Etek Ego $400
Used 05 Ego $400

I am leaning towards the Etek Ego as of now, but can the marker keep up with current markers? I know it is only a couple years old, but I'm not sure.

I'd get the Etek. In tourneys, your BPS is capped anyways, so keeping up with other markers isn't really an issue.

Do you care about how loud your marker is, or the difference between spools and poppets? If you're into spools go with the PMR, which will also be the quietest I believe. If not I'd probably suggest either the 05 ego or the mini.

Though is the 05 ego upped at all? Price seems a bit high to me, but I could be wrong.

No, the 05 Ego is stock, but is $400 for a Used Etek with a Tadao Board a good price?

Eh, get a upgraded mini, or an 06 ego. You can get them upped for 400. And a really great gun I used to have one.

Go for the etek. Nice guns, worth the money if you ask me.
Also mini's are nice, but the feel of them are hit or miss if you ask me. I also have and up'ed mini for sale if your interested.

I think the 05 EGO's are bulky now.

I'd say etek. Easy to fix and maintain.

Dangerous power F8 eats all of those, including the Etek for breakfast. Much better choice IMO...300 for a used one, easy.

Got mine for $300, and it feels great with the magnetic trigger.

Just make sure to get a blue/silver one so you can trade me the silver parts ;)

The only thing with the F8 is its a fasor, but if that doesn't bug you its a great marker.

Trust me the 06 ego is the best ego in that price range, yes better than the etek. But the g3 is really good too.
