Review: The Ego9 for me, was my first newly purchased marker from planet eclipse, seeing how they are very similar to the intimidator, I knew I would love it. I purchased mine for $1000 which included a 70/4500 crossfire tank. I soon found out these markers are made in england and hand assembled by planet eclipse techs. Each marker comes with a warranty card, Hard case which includes a two piece, 14 inch, reverse threaded barrel with a .693 back, a set of allen wrenches, manual, a spare parts bag, barrel bag, and marker. You will notice hanging on the macro hose is a tag that has the name of the tech who assembled your gun.

The gun out of the box is absolutely stunning. The color is gorgeous and the grips give you a very comfortable hold on the gun. I read the manual and tinkered with the settings to my liking and took it out for a spin. As soon as I put air and paint in it, It was shooting like a dream. The first time I took it out to a turf field, I was taking out people with Luxes and Bob Long Victories within a couple minutes of the game starting. The marker is very versatile whether your a front, back or mid player(I play all of these) If you want speed, this marker is capable of shooting 48 balls a second, all you need is to find a hopper that can keep up with that.

When it comes to adjusting velocity, it's very simple. All you need is a 1/8 allen wrench. On the regulator is a + and - sign which tells you which direction to turn depending on which way you need your velocity to be.

Regardless of how dirty this gun is, it still shoots the same every time. After owning this marker for about a year, I still have the same battery that it came with out of the box, I haven't had to replace an O-ring yet as long as I keep the air settings balanced.

Accuracy is pretty good out of the box but with a little bit of tuning, it can become really solid. I do have to say my SFT Hybrid Traitor Shocker was a lot more accurate, but it's heavy and too much to bulk around.

In recent play, I played with both a 2005 Alias Intimidator, and my Ego9. After going 4 games with the intimidator, I switched and played the other 3 hours with my ego. It really just is nice.

Conclusion: In conclusion, I can comfortably say this is the best overall marker i've ever owned in 9 years of paintball experience. It reflects planet eclipse's quality products and service. If you are ready to upgrade to a more modern gun, I say look no further.
