Review: OK… first of I want to make it clear, I’m not a total noob just a somwhat noob when it comes to Markers. I’ve owned or have shot and use pretty much everything out there so please don’t take my review as if this is my first electro I’ve owned. I also need to say I’m not an English major, so if I have spelling or crazy weird sentences please be nice in knowing that I’m human.
*My marker history*
Traccer – Carbine - 98 - 98c upped - 98c Ebolt - Pimped out Impulse - 04 Angel Speed
Nasty Nerve - Toxic Impulse - Pimped out Ion - Lasoya Promaster - Punisher Ion – and now.... Eos *I think I’ve found my marker I’m going to keep for a long time*

When I fist saw the box on the steps I was VERY excited, and was saying Thank you SEAN and SP!! I opened the shipping box and this is what I found. I also noticed they changed the freak JR tip some. It doesn’t have as much porting as the Epiphany tip.

They really did a nice job with the packaging of the Eos. I got everything I needed in the package to wok unlike some on here for some reason. The packaging really isn’t that much different from Epiphany or Ion since they’re very similar in size and shape.

First thing I did was put in a brand new battery and set up my settings which are this. *soon to change later*
Psi = 265
Mode = Semi
Rof = 15 bps
Dwell = 35
Green Insert
The Board has the same functions / configuration as the Ion boards so it was easy for me to change it all.

After that I put on a fresh 68 3000 tank to check for leaks and dryfire to work in the Eos. The tank went on nice, aired her up…. NO LEAKS yeah… Then proceeded to the garage since my son was taking a nap, and I don’t want to wake him up.

I REALLY liked the Eos trigger. I only adjusted the trigger pull some since I liked how snappy the stock trigger was. I also like how the Eos trigger seems to be skinnier and round. Like you’ve heard many time, there is NO side to side slop, what a SOLID trigger. I will NOT need to upgrade that FOR SURE.
I also like the integrated rail at the bottom of the frame, that was how my punisher Ion was and that was nice. I really like the feel of the Eos with my back up Cross Fire 68/3000 tank; it felt Very solid and LIGHT. While dry firing, she had NO KICK but that was just like my other Ion’s or Epiphanies I’ve shot.

After the enjoyment of dry firing a tank, I wanted to check the bolt and lube it up myself.
At first I looked at the end and noticed this huge hex in the end and not seeing it in the packaging. I also didn’t have it in my tool kit and I was like what am I suppose to do now? So I decided to see if the back will just twist off with my fingers….. YUP… it started to twist off, I was very happy and proceeded to take off the end cap with EASY!! I then pretty much pulled out the guts of the Eos with NO TOOLS NEEDED!!! HOLY WOW… SO NICE..

From there I decided to use the Blue insert since I’ve heard it works well the the epiphany so lets give it a try. I cleaned off the lube and relubed the bolt and other O-ring that needed lube. That all took only 5 minutes to do and I was taking ALLOT of time checking things out. In a tight game situation, I could clean lube up an Eos in 1 minute I kid you not. I got done and slapped on my 68/4500 and aired her up, and NO leaks.
I then grabbed my hopper and put in on my Eos which comes with a Qlock which is a nice feedneck. I also notice that it has changed a little but not much, the big thing is that the feedneck screw right into the outer body, not the inner body like the Ion. That makes for a really nice finish look to me.

Speaking of the body; man I LOVE the looks of the Eos. The out body is almost like a Dust black finish with the Inner body and barrel a glossy black which makes it stand out through the outer body which makes this marker HAWT! I also like the new flowing lines that match up NICE and the stamps on it are nice as well. For some reason I swear the Eos is smaller and lighter than the Epiphany and Ion.

I then proceeded outside to chrono and noticed my new psi setting; it has changed due to the blue insert.
OK, I said earlier that I used the setting before with the Green insert. Well now I’m using the Blue on and my PSI changed. Here are the setting I’m using now:
Psi = 250 *Blue insert dropped the Psi 15*
Mode = Semi
Rof = 15 bps
Dwell = 35
Green Insert
= 285 (+- 7, and my paint to barrel match was CRAP)

It was cold out so I only wanted to shot a hopper full otherwise I would have shot allot more. What a joy it was shooting the Eos. I didn’t change any of my setting from above when I shot over my hand held chrono. At my woods we play right around 285fps, she shot at 288, 285, 281, 293, 285, 287 etc etc… very Impressed for CRAPPY paint and not broken in yet. She had a little kick to her, but nothing that I can’t handle; I’m not a little kid even though I might act like it.

I also better wrap up my review since I’m sure some of you are getting bored.
All in all, the Eos is NOT just a Ion on steroids or Epiphany with a BOB body. It has allot of little changes that are nice that the other don't have.
Conclusion: I give the Eos a 9.8 out of 10, since nothing is perfect, and I still don’t like the stock detents. Since I can't give it that.. I'll round UP to 10.
