Ego 7's and 8's are a little quieter but the early Ego's and Eteks have a rather sharp report.

What barrel are you using? My Etek got MUCH quieter and more efficient when I switched to the SL Shaft kit and used a smaller bore size. The 8 comes with the shaft but the stock bore size is huge and it makes it pretty loud. Try a little more reasonable overbore and you might be happier.

Just shooting air through my 7 it's much quieter than the Etek and not much louder than my PM6 when I shot that with air only. With paint it's not bad at all.

I don't have one yet but I've heard good things about the cure bolt. It's supposed to allow you to shoot brittle paint.

The Zick kit is incredible. Makes an Etek shoot with less kick than a zicked Ego7. I would invest in that and then a Cure bolt. Other than a different barrel there's nothing you really need to do.

I have been using an 05 ego for tournaments and general play since late 05 and have had no problem with brittle paint. I did notice that they are a little loader but mine quieted greatly when I went to a freak kit with all american front.

I've owned my ETek for a month now. I traded my Upgraded A-5 for it. I miss the A-5 but I love my ETek.

Some of the people that I play woodsball with think I am crazy and a traitor (A-5 owners) for making the deal; the other people that I play speedball with think I made the right choice. Me? I am happy with my decision.

My needs and interests changed -- playing woodsball, I found myself using my pump more and my A-5 taking the back seat, so I made the logical choice and upgraded for speedball.

I own a PMR SE that I had upgraded the stock board to a Tadao Musashi 7, I ended up making the same upgrade to my "new" ETek. I also replaced the wearing stock bolt with a Cure bolt.
