Which gun would you guys prefer, an 06 Cyborg or the new Etek Ego 2?

The 06/07 Cyborg is the fastest marker made and the most efficient currently in production. Therefore, I'd prefer an 06 Cyborg out of those two - that's why I have one.

I would have to say the Borg would be a bit better.

Why would someone get an ego instead of a cyborg when the cyborgs are better? What are the advantages of getting an etek ego 2?
Is the trigger/triggerframe on the 06 cyborg any good?
Is the stock barrel any good? I would be getting some kind of carbon fiber barrel or a brass barrel instead, or maybe another barrel that you guys prefer.

Eteks are dumbed down Egos anyway, really. As for why people get regular Egos over Borgs... it's because of the hype. Borgs outperform them in every way, for less money. The stock barrel is a .689 back, 14" MacDev Matchstick barrel, which is extremely high quality. Mann's barrel test shows it to be extremely accurate and only slightly louder than a dual vented Brass. I plan to get a Matchstick kit for my Borg.

I don't particularly like the stock trigger, but I love my PBK (Paintball Kingdom) Sabre trigger. It's made of delrin so it feels a little different, doesn't make a metallic clicking sound because the trigger stop screw is nylon(?) instead of metal, and I like the shape better. The frame on it is comfortable to me, even with my Dark Seoul grips (just thin plastic sheets really, no actual "grip" to them).

Cyborg all the way. Brand new '06s can still be had for $650, they're faster, more efficient, have a better board and better stock parts then the Etek, or Ego for that matter.
