SFT Shocker VS Etek 1

Sft shocker with CP reg and Virtue board freak barrel

Etek 1 with Virtue, Zik kit and Cure Bolt

Which would you rather have and why?

Etek 1 simply because I don't like Smart Parts much and it sounds like it would have better resale value

I prefer the shocker. I just like the way a spool shoots, but shockers have higher maintenance. If you want a gun with low maintenance that shoots decent then go with the etek. It is really all up to you and what feels better to you.

I was really aming for overall performance

Maintenance is not an issue as I can handle most of that. I have an ETEK showing up today but sold my shocker at the end of last year and regret it. It shot grreat, had some bolt stick issues but I fixed that. Other than that it was isanely fast and used a lot of air. As for the ETEK, I hear it is more air efficient

I prefer shockers. They're overall smoother shooters. BUT... You will need to put some money into it. As, is, they have HORRIBLE FSDO .
