Lots of cockers...this one is my favorite by far
Marker Setup: Eclipse cocker w/ sp freak barrel and 68ci 4500psi raptor
Strengths: Everything. The gun looks beautiful, the price is right, and I don't think I've ever felt such a smooth, fast trigger on a cocker. I opted for the non hinge trigger which includes a roller sear and I have to say, I was amazed by the trigger pull. The gun shoots fast, and is nearly impossible to shortstroke (I had teammates who tried...and couldnt).
As for looks, while the milling appears to be subtle, take a good close look at the eclipse body next to another body and you'll be amazed. The amount of metal cut away is truly extraordinary, and it makes a world of difference in terms of weight. I also love the integrated back block look. The all chrome pneumatics are also a great addition.
Finally price. Coming in around $950 this marker is priced to sell. In a world where similar guns (i.e. sfl by bad boyz toyz) can run as much as $1500, this guy is a bargain.
One last thing...the folks over at Planet Paintball were nothing but friendly to me. I e-mailed them often to check on my order and they never got irritated and always got back to me in short order. When I initially placed the order I was told it would take about 4 - 6 weeks as I had just missed the last load sent out for anodizing...3 weeks later there was a box at my door from England. Way to go Planet!
Weaknesses: The barrel. By eclipse's own admission, they send a cheapie barrel because they know people are just going to replace them anyway. For additional cost you CAN replace this barrel with a barrel of your choice, which will be anodized to match.
Conclusion: Fantastic product. The best autococker I've ever owned (and I've owned several from express cockers to a p and p supercocker) and probably the best I've ever fired. If you like cockers, this is definitely one to pick up...I think you'll find that nothing else compares.
Overall, definitely 5 stars :)
10 out of 10
