    Hey guys,

    Was just wondering if my Etek Ego 2007 needs a "Zick kit" to work?

    Not that I'm aware of. A zick kit is a zero kick upgrade, although they tend to already supply it In newer ego's. Yours might already have one, its basically a new rammer system that reduces the ego's kick. Remove your rammer and have a look, I think they brand the zick rammer.

    the ego 07 was the last ego not to have the kit, so it is something that you can upgrade but it isnt essential for playing

    It'll smooth out your gat a bit. Handy if you're a back corner, not really relevant if you don't shoot long ropes of paint or reload while shooting regularly.

    The first Zick kit was introduced to the SL74 models, and was to create less kick when the rammer returns back after a shot has been fired. These were available as an upgrade kit for the ego 07.
    The Zick 2 kit was introduced when the SL94 came out if memory serves me right, reducing kick further than previous models having a rubber dome cushion inside the rammer cap. These are available as an upgrade kit for ego 07-09.
