2004 Eclipse Nexus Directors Cut w/Zero B
The stock Dye Ultralight works like a champ, but it probably wouldn't hurt to pickup a couple of backs with different bore sizes.
- Incredibly light and balanced
- Accurate right out the gate
- Fast, low pressure cycling
- Anno is so pretty it's hard to find matching accessories
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.
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.
