Review: Basically, this gun is amazing.

It comes fully-loaded with all of Planet Eclipses technological developments that have spawned over the years. This gun is definitely a culmination of years of experience making amazing guns.

Lets go over a few key things about this gun, starting from when you open up the case...

Packaging: As everyone knows by now, Planet Eclipse always delivers in this category. Even the etek line comes in stellar packaging. The gun case is a nice metal case with zipper seal. Inside you'll find your gun, barrel, lube, spares, manual and barrel sock. The case has extra slots for barrel backs should you choose to purchase some.

Feel: This gun simply feels incredible in the hands. Extremely ergonomic design. The reg is far enough forward that your thumb can fit between it and the trigger guard, which is how some people prefer to hold their gun.

Design: The design of the Ego 10 is extremely solid. Clamping feedneck, on/off oops ASA which now purges, BIGGER LCD!, 4pt adjustable trigger, wired eyes (not ribbon), amazing board with tons of customization, shaft3 barrel, solid reg, MAC solenoid, cure3 bolt, Zick2 rammer....the list goes on! Like I said, this is all of Eclipses top technology thrown into one gun.

Performance: This is one of the nicer shooting guns I've used. Out of any ego/etek, it definitely has the least kick. You can really see that they've put some more effort in reducing kick vs. having the highest ROF. Tourny paintball and any paintball for that matter does not require 30+bps. The Ego 10 does shoot up to 28bps, so if you're a youtuber whos all about trying to max out your hopper, you can still do it! The gun does not chop - cure3 at work. Don't expect chops on your average 10-15bps PSP ramp whatsoever. Efficiency is good too. I usually get about 1100-1300 shots from a 68/45 filled to 4000psi. The main issue is the barrel bore which is .693. With .685 bore on tourny paint, efficiency will be much higher.
Conclusion: Bottom line is this gun is amazing. The price is steep, but in this case you do get what you pay for. If you want a good gun but only have 400-600 to spend, get its little brother - the ETEK3. If you can fork out the cash for this baby, please do so. In my opinion it's the nicest high-end out there.
10 out of 10
