FYI, they don't actually keep score.... and when they see one side is winning heavily, they call in one of those fake bombs or special ops teams to even it up.

Hey guys, please help me ID this marker?





I'm looking for the manual for this marker. It's suppose to be an Ego 07 but it doesn't have the LCD display like it shows in the 06-09 Ego manual. Any idea why?

It's an E-tek Ego... like a stripped down version of regular Ego's. Planet Eclipse should have it on their site.

Hmm... I suppose maybe one of the differences between the Planet Eclipse and ETEK Ego is the LCD? Because I've checked the manuals from 06-09 on Planet Eclipse's website and they all show LCD.

I'm having trouble find the ETek website. Do they have one?

Hey, how do you guys clean your paintball gear? I throw some of my stuff into the laundry machine and it still smells a bit like North Shore Paintball.

I usually hand wash my stuff. Throw a little 3x laundry wash in the sink throw it around in there, let it sit for about 10 mins. Then afterwards i try to squeeze as much excess water out as possible and hang dry. Lol mine usually smells like fresh rain after its all done the cycle.

I wash all my stuff just like I wash the rest of my clothes. In the washing machine and in the dryer, no issues at all.

Fabric softener for the clean smell and the win.

for anyone that wants we're having a game up at westwood plateau nov 29th at 10am just a bunch of weekend warrior woodsballers

we have a compressor for air (5$ for the day) and paint (45$ a box but id suggest bringing your own paint incase we run out)

the field is at the top on johnson go straight through the gate go around the corner and follow the trail that leads down on the right (wouldnt suggest bringin your car down the trail, a truck or winter beater will be fine, i made it down in my corolla)

Do you guys think I will see a big difference in firing rate with a Virtue Board on my E-tek Ego7 with a Halo loader (everything else stock)?

Does your field care if you bounce or set your gun to ramp/auto? I'm assuming your Etek has adjustable modes of fire... tweak those first as well as your trigger setup (set screws, spring or magnet, etc) to see if you can get what you want before you spend $100+ on that board.

The board will just have more options to tune... won't necessarily increase your rate of fire.

if you want to fix you're rate of fire, convert it to pump

I've always assumed that the board raises the max cap speed to increase the marker's potential.

What additional tweaking does a VirtueBoard give you? I thought the stock one already gives you quite of bit of tweaking. I'm just not touching them because I took the advice from TechPB videos on YouTube (stock gun doesn't really benefit from changing those settings); that's why I was wondering how a stock gun + board would react.

You'll get a lot more info by reading product reviews www.pbreview.com , as well as reading the specs from the manufactures websites, as well, as going onto a paintball forum. www.paintballer.ca is local and they can point you in the proper directing if they don't know.

This is an old thread but I didn't want to start a new one...

Was anyone else disappointed with Badlands' Fall sale? "Up to 70-90% off" Or someone actually got something they wanted for a good price?

Kinda late but yeah they never offer anything really cheap.. Most door crashers are either sold online or only have limited options in sizes and what not.. Typically the guns never go on crazy sales unless they are trying to get rid of the whole inventory. Thats why most accessories get such great discounts.

Richmond indoor paintball is really fun. Free for girls on Friday nights which includes, admission and rental gear. I recommend buying a cheap mask if you are interested in playing because rental masks arent that great.

If you not a girl then its $20 admission + $15 for rental & Price for paint (depending on how much you want)

All paintball locations pretty much charge the same rates but I enjoy RIP as they are indoor and you can play all season round.
