Products Used:
Mechanical cockers, E2 framed cockers, Angels and the like.

The stock Dye Ultralight works like a champ, but it probably wouldn't hurt to pickup a couple of backs with different bore sizes.
Strengths: - Incredibly light and balanced
- Accurate right out the gate
- Fast, low pressure cycling
Weaknesses: - Anno is so pretty it's hard to find matching accessories
Review: Shopped around for quite a while looking for a high end market that fit my requiments. I was looking for a light weight flame thrower that would help me get out the gate, and then help me really lay out streams of balls once I got where I was going. There are some tremendous products out there, but went with the Directors Cut because I have an emotional love for the feel of cockers and the reputation of Planet Eclipse.

Now that I have had a chance to play with the DC, I really couldn't be happier. The gun really feels light, balanced and solid in your hand. Beyond that, the milling and anodizing can only really be appreciated in person. Mine has a limited edition deep navy blue anodizing, and it's beautiful to look at.

In play, the gun transitioned easily from hand-to-hand, and handling it quickly became second nature. In game it was very easy to stream 12/14 bps bursts, and the double tap snap shots were dead on. Even though the Dye ultralight was a bit large in bore size for the Diablo paint I was firing, the accuracy was really pretty amazing. As far as air efficiency is concerned, I was getting about 700 rounds out of my 45/4500.

The one grip I have is that I tried to purchase an Eclipse On/Off for the gun, and they seem to be out of stock everywhere I look. I suppose that's more of an inditement against PE than the gun it'self. But if you do buy one of these markers, you'll probably end up turning into a neurotic mess like me; always looking for the softest peice of grass to lay it down, always looking for the perfect accessory that keeps the look of the gun together.
Conclusion: Planet Eclipse has really put together a top notch product. All the design and mechanical elements seem to work perfectly in harmony. The result is a light weight, smooth, quick, balanced, and beautifull marker.
