Strengths: ROF is insane (as with any swing trigger). The feel is so much more natural over my previous 3mm double finger slide (and it was ultra smooth and fast). The adjustibility is wonderful. No slop and can be set to fire if you breathe on it or adjusted to fire elsewhere. High quality and well thought out.
Weaknesses: Cost is a big concern since for $50 less you can have a WGP hinge. Most people don't think too highly about them, but honestly, the longer swing arm on them feels more natural. The Eclipse feels more like you primarily fire with your middle finger whereas the WGP feels like it's equal effort from both first and second finger. It also doesn't come with any additional springs, unlike the KAPP Reflex. For some reason, I've also had to run a higher cocking pressure to get my bolt all the way back, but I don't know if that's related to the short throw or the addition of my Bomb 3-way.
Conclusion: I think it's a great upgrade. In my opinion, a swing trigger, any swing trigger is all you need. Going for the higher end frames like the KAPP or the Eclipse is only gravy. It has taken me quite awhile to get used to it, but its getting faster with each day of play. Further tweaking is still needed to find the sweet spot but it is fast right out of the box.
10 out of 10
