Etek Ego - Opinions?

So, I've been toying with adding an electro to the collection, for the times when some paint spraying is in order.

Not being an electro-guy, I couldn't really come up with anything that interested me, or was reasonably enough priced for the "occasional electro player".

A co-worker suggested the Eclipse Etek-Ego.
He absolutely LOVES his, and overall reviews seem pretty favorable.

Just wondering if anyone here has one, thoughts? Opinions?

From what the guys at the field tell me it's just as good as an Ego at half the price.

But...because it's from PE it probably costs 30% to 50% more than it should.

DP Fusions are awesome for the price and operate similarly with similar low maintenance construction/design at about 1/2 or 1/3 the cost of an Etek. Check those out too.

Hmm, the Fusion is already looking like a better option!
Seems to be lots of good reviews out there, and the price is definitely more appropriate for someone like me who might play electro once a year!

PW is still run by one of our guys, right?
Anyone know which of our members that is?

Another vote for the fusion. Just make sure you use dow 55 instead of dow 33 when you lube it up. It lasts longer and is much better for the gun. No gun oil allowed unfortunately.

The fusion just keeps looking better and better actually.
Silly question, but does anyone happen to know if their regulator can handle the "step down" from a high-output HPA bottle?
