I'm new to the high end electro market, but I'm hopefully going to buy a Black ETek. The guy I'm going to buy it from, sent me some pics, it's still in the factory plastic, NEVER opened.

1. The ETek does come with a stock barrel and macroline right?
2. Is it easy to maintain?
3. Since I'm getting it for only $400, is it a good deal?

Thanks

I just sent out my Crossfire 68/45 to get hydro'd, but I'm short on the hopper. I got a warp and a VL Quantum, I doubt thats gonna keep up...

your right you need a halo pulse or vlocity to keep up with a high end like the etek.

The quantum is never a good choice.

Ever.

I'd honestly take a gravity hopper over it, thats basically what it is anyways...

But with the warp, I think it would be able to keep up on short bursts, but you wouldn't be able to do strings.

I'd just buy a vLocity or vLocity Jr. with Gangstar and be done with it, great hoppers. I'm not a Halo fan, and definitely not a Pulse fan (my shells died...) but everyone has their opinion. Halo's/Pulse's are top heavy too IMO.

I'd just go vLocity.

Crap......the guy sold his ETek :wacko: :o :)

Now I'm stuck between a DM4 and a Angel Speed (without a barrel or charger), both cost $300.

Help me choose please! I need to make a choice by tomorrow!

There are plenty of other stuff out there for $400. Or even under the $400 mark...

I personally would not recommend the DM4 or the Epiphany.

You can pick up a used Etek at $400 no problem on PBN.

PM5's are around $300, Fusions are dirt cheap and preform very well, PM6/DM5's resale has went down and you can snag an upped PM6 for bout $400 as well. New Quests from Zeypher is going for $399.

Research bro, Theres much more than just the two options you have right now.

Thanks for your opinions and the like, I went with the DM4. (BTW: I chose to buy it because it helps support my local shop.)
