The only thing you need is a spare parts kit of the exact size that planet eclipse recomends. if you use the wrong o rings, it will probably leak.

Review: Well i got the marker a few months ago used from a techie who only used it once for a grand price of 900 canadian dollars. I got it the day of my tournament and it sure warmed up to me really fast. Using an 07 ego for 2 years I was sick of the lpr and the small trigger frame always cutting into my comfort zone. Gun is 5/5 in the comfort category.

The Geo comes with a full tube of eclipse grease and all the allan keys you will ever need for it which is a nice touch on PE's part.5/5

the barrel is a pretty typical .693 2 piece that is basically standard for all markers in this range. it shoots any paint i put through it very accurately. what more could anyone want?5/5

the reg is the best i have ever seen. no washers to fall out like the 07 ego. its just a simple piston and spring. its a very consistent reg too. i like to shoot my guns a little low because the refs at my field flip if a gun is shooting over 300 feet per second so I could shoot at 280-290 and not worry about any accidental jumps in velocity rather than 260-270. adjusting the velocity is easy too because the reg is marked with arrows on which way to turn.5/5

The feed neck is pretty much perfect although a thumb adjuster like on the sl94 would be a nice touch 4/5

the eyes and detents are good except the detents can ware out pretty fast. 4/5

The board is a bit to get used to coming from the 07 ego but i ended up liking it more. I also averaged 30 balls per second with the empire prophecy at a dwell of 8.5.
the board has all the good features. 5/5

the bolt is super easy to maintain and has very few o rings. it shoots any paint perfectly with no chops and very little kick. 5/5

The asa is perfect but using planet eclipse asa's before they have been quite touchy. I have not had any problems with the geo's yet though. 4/5

the gun has so few parts that you can strip the whole gun down, ready to anodize in just over 2 minuets. 5/5

The manual is also a very clear, easy to understand, and has pictures for dummies such as myself. If you have any problems with the marker there are plenty of trouble shooting guides which will guarantee fix your problem if you have the right stuff. 5/5



Conclusion: Me being an idiot when it comes to taking apart stuff and adjusting it wrong, this thing is extremely idiot proof. this is basically the same as all guns in its range but it has NO flaws whatsoever. yes i prefer it more than the luxe.
