    I was leaning towards the Gtek, but the Etha 2 is a bargain. Or i might just stretch myself and get the Gtek 160R. Too many choices, hoping to narrow it down at CPPS this weekend

    Basically this. I've been blown away by the Etha 2. I'd far rather have a hoseless marker, the quick change battery and the extra durability it offers. In my humble opinion, with the GTEK you're paying more for less of a marker.

    I disagree. The quick remove bolt is a god send if you have a breach break on (or off) field and the OLED screen makes all programming so much easier. I haven't held a etha 2 yet but the hose/eye pipe isnt really much of an issue (except for cosmetics) IMHO.

    You can strip the Etha 2 bolt easily without tools, sure it takes a few more seconds than the GTEK but it's no way a deal breaker. Likewise the OLED board, handy but the Etha 2 programming is a piece of piss for the blue moon ocasions you need to change anything.

    Fair enough I havent been able to get my hands on one yet. Changing programming depends upon how much you play walk-ons and tournys I suppose.
