Review: I just saw one of these things at a local paintball store. I gassed it up and fired it. I sold my ripper timmy that night to get one of these. I have a DM5 which is slower and not as accurate as this. This is way faster than a DC2 because of the lighter back block assembly. I can reach about 19 constant no bounce. RX Paintball must have some off the highest trained autococker staff beacause one day it wasn't working so I called them and they told me how to fix it in 15 seconds.
Conclusion: Amazing marker Great price. SELL YOUR CRAP GET 100 of these
10 out of 10

It's swings and roundabouts really. While the RX5 does come with a very light back block, lighter than that on the Eclipse Nexus DC2, the Eclipse P-block lets you use a shorter bolt. Obviously, with two bolts of the same design, and made of the same material, the shorter one will be lighter. Sadly, the Eclipse DART bolt is quite heavy, but there are certainly lighter P-block bolts available (Orange Hardliner, Slik delrin - can't wait for the Slik Nylatron P-block bolt, as it should be one of the lightest bolts going!) So, with a lighter bolt fitted to the Nexus, there shouldn't be a great deal of difference between the two. With P-block bolts now being standard on the 2K5 Superstock, hopefully a wider choice of bolts will become available.

Even with the DART bolt, the DC2 can already shoot 23bps+ (I have a self assembled E2'd Evo-X that shoots 23bps with the DART bolt - the Evo P-block is heavier than that on the DC2, so the DC2 should be a little faster) so it will already shoot faster than anyone can pull a trigger (minus bounce and ramping) even with the Eclipse bolt.

Don't get me wrong, the RX5 is probably as good as any other high end Autococker, but given the choice I would go with the DC2, as it is more exclusive, has more adventurous milling and a more original design that allows a lightweight Minicocker sized body that still allows a full sized air chamber in front of the valve chamber. The Nexus body is only available through Planet as an assembled marker, so you know it has been assembled by one of their technicians. The RX5 on the other hand appears to be assembled from a freely available AIM 18+ body kit, and so anyone could build one of these and pass it off as an RX5.
