Echo vs. Raptor


#1

So I wasn’t exactly sure where to put this but here goes nothing. So I got an echo last christmas and it was my first metal. Now I want another and I was looking at the raptor and was wondering how it compares to the echo.


#2

The Raptor is lighter abd smaller than the Echo, so it plays a bit faster. All in all, they both play great (smooth, stable, etc.)


#3

I liked my raptors better actually. The raptor grinds better and they both spin a lot longer than you would expect. Even with the caps out the echo seems a bit solid and I like light and floaty. I would go for the raptor if I had the choice. Raptor regens better as well witch make a big diffrence to me.


#4

So how much smaler is the raptor than the echo.


#5

The Raptor is smaller than the Echo in both width and diameter, but not by that much.


#6

i like my raptor, it’s light and smooth, even with the stock bearing. As long as you clean the bearing of coarse. the bearing comes well lubricated :-. just simply clean it and put a TINY drop of thin lube on it. The lube will help the bearing last for virtually ever. I’ve had my raptor bearing for a little less than a year now.

Personally I like the echo better than the raptor. Light and fast. Play really well.
