2002 Eclipse eBlade (Cobalt)
Kapp 15 Degree Mount
88ci 4500psi Mac Dev Conquest
10" FREAK kit
All you need is a FAST hopper and high end tank with a good reg. Also, get a FREAK if you can- it's definitely worth it.
Honestly, NONE. Unless you consider price too be a marker's weakness...
---WOW! A truly amazing marker. Best i've ever seen on the field. It is incredibly fast with the eBlade and pretty much CANNOT chop balls so just have at it!
---Also, it's accurate. I really mean it. This is 100% true- I shot it in my back yard and from 20 big strides out i hit a light bulb 3 times in a row!!! How sweet is that? That was with the FREAK which i think really helps, and i was shooting RPS Premium.
---I am yet to chrono it, but the former owner says it goes only + or - 3 or 4 shot to shot. Really helps out accuracy. You'll see ball after ball hitting the same spot on your target.
---Planet will service it whenever you send it in, also a great thing.
---It looks amazing, and is pretty light. Much lighter than stock but not as light as some of the other aftermarket cockers.
I honestly think that this is the best marker on the market today. It is one of the fastest, one of the most accurate, one of the most consistent and so on. I HIGHLY reccomend buying an Eclipse 'Cocker, especially an eBlade.

Ive used a spyder E-99 ,ive also used an angel IR3, a vertical feed cocker, black magic cocker, an AIM cocker, and a brass eagle (none of these are as fast or as accurate)
I actually have a charcoal factory team edition planet eclipse cocker (basically the same thing but without the Nexus kit) an egg II, a macro-line, a dye mini drop, an evil pipe, and an aci bulldog tank
the Nexus kit, it can cycle up to 40 times a second with the kit , a fast hopper, and a barrel kit is about it
SPEED, sweet looking, accuracy, pretty air efficient
NOTHING, except price, but if want some serious kit you need to spend some cash
This marker is FAST FAST FAST, and it can be over twice as fast with the Nexus kit. It is also very very accurate, sends the balls very straight unlike angels and the matrix. Every ball will go exactly in the same spot each time you fire this marker. Very nice looking. Simple, many people think the e-blade frame is too confusing to work but it is actually very simple if you read the manual a couple times and test it out. Out of the box play unless it isn't timed when you get it.
edited-After i had owned this for about 6 months one problem i did have was andi can't believe i didn't notice was that the block was slamming against the body of the gun. So it eventually tore the threads and ripped the block out of place. But i sent it to Planet Eclipse and UNDER WARRANTY they are now putting a stainless steel road to connect the pump arm so it is guaranteed to not separate again.
Overall a very very good gun, unbelievable speed, accuracy, and good looks. Can't go wrong with this gun, and get the Nexus kit, makes it so much faster and air efficient. You wont be sorry. deserves a 15. After owning the gun for a while the block did work loose but i am extremely satisfied with the customer service of Planet Eclipse.

Blue Cobalt Eblade with matching wgp barrel
1.1 angel air
VL Evolution 2
The nexus QEV's and Ram makes it so much FASTER
Mabye an dye ultra light
None that i have found
This is a very good marker with no weakness. i am pleased i bought this marker as soon as i shot it i wanted more and more it is so sweet. Maybe the price is a bit to much but that's not really a weakness
i suppose its slightly heavy with angel air but nothing to worry about. i have not choped with my marker the eye is great
If you are thinking of getting one do because they are worth the money. i am giving it a 10 because there are no weakness (that i have found) and is a good fast reliable marker

2003 Autococker with E-2, 14" Smart Parts Stainless Steal Freak back and AA front, Black Magic regulator, CP Razor drop, VL Evolution 2, Dye Throttle peanut tank, Dye Rhino tank cover, Phat barrel condom
Fast hopper, Compressed air tank, I dont know, do whatever u want there are endless possibilities
Autocockers are the most accurate guns out there, very fast, doesn't chop, quiet!
None this is the best gun ever!
Autocockers are very unique guns, nothing in the market today compares. Autocockers are accurate, quiet, and when combined with the power of the E-Blade it is the fastest gun out there. They are usually from $750-$1600 with E-Blade and $300-$600 without. Overall this is the best, most accurate, fast, and quiet gun out there. A little on the expensive side but it is worth every penny!
Overall the best gun out there because of its speed, accuracy, and stealth sound. U have to get this gun!
Eclipse Pro Series Eclipseblade Cocker 04 (Blue 2 Black Fade)
Palmers fatty stabilizer
16' freak with stainless insert
Shocktech FGP Regulator
Z boarded egg
88/45 pure energy
Just the regulator!
Fast, and Reliable, accurate, easy maintenance.
There are no weaknesses for this product, except for the price.
I've own a lot of guns and nothing compares with what i have right now! It has the accuracy, speed, and reliability! Very smooth, light the best autococker in the market. Never chop balls, never needed a different set up to be faster. With the right regulator you will never have to worry about velocity fluctuating.
Stock product alone can make a long stand in the market.
With upgrades it will be the best gun in the market.
Pretty dang accurate!
Fun to shoot!
So fast you have to refill alot! (But thats a good thing)
I was at the field today and I saw this guy with this awesome cocker. He offers to let me shoot it and within 5 seconds at least half the hopper was gone. The cool thing is that when i Shot it, every ball I shot, hit within 2 inches of each other at about 50 feet.
Get this gun! Before I tried this gun I was saving up for a Dm4 but now I want this!
Eclipse e-blade autococker, 68/4500 max flo, Freak, Qev's
max flo- much more consistant
Freak-even greater accuaracy
distance, accaracy,speed,very little if any chopping
This is the best gun i have ever shot, it is acurate and has the speed of a timmi if set right. this gun absolutley rocks.This is great if you play back or front and the gun just feels natural in everyone hands i have talked.If you shoot this gun it becomes addicting to play with it.
BUY THIS GUN YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED BEST GUN EVER MADE WILL ROCK ALL OTHERS
Supplying a Dye Xcel barrel (£34 ish) with a marker that costs over a grand is a bit iffy but it just about does the job. Get a freak and you will notice the difference straight away. Apart from that and obviously an electro hopper the marker doesn't need anything done to it.
Consistency, Accuracy, RoF, light, little kick.
Supplied Barrel. (Dye Xcel)
ACE using half-black two-tone.
Supplied manual is poor.
Bearing in mind that i've gone from pump to mag to an all-singing/dancing cocker I have had a few niggles with this marker but they are all minor and part of my learning experience more than getting use to any markers problems.
The consistency is great even if you are a tight-arse like me and are running on CO2.
Accuracy/Range is okay with the standard barrel but with a 16" freak it is excellent.
ACE is very good - since January only one 'normal' chop but that was a dodgy ball however it cannot handle half-black two-tone paint very well - rate of fire even after adjusting the ACE settings to compensate is random. You have the option however to turn off the sensor which I was forced to do once but I got breaks all day. So avoid half black like the plague or learn to drop your RoF if you turn the ACE off.
E-Blade frame set up is straight-forward; if you're a fiddler then the timing can easily be adjusted using the button inside the grip but there's little need as the factory-default S, M & F settings are fine.
The supplied manual is bugger all use as it seems to be the one supplied with the e-blade frame only (as if you were upgrading your current cocker rather than selling a kidney to get this new one), and half of it is how to drill and fit the grip-frame/ACE/E3-way which are already fitted.
It would be far more useful to have made a decent manual that covers all of the marker components - there's no mention of the internals or front-block and parts and nothing useful about basic maintenence.
If you are an experienced cocker user then this shouldn't be an issue (i'm not so I had to hunt around on the internet and ask other owners). The only bad bit of after-sales from Eclipse was after I asked about the other marker bits and was told not to worry about them -apart from that they have been great.
This is a great marker. I have fired Angels, mod-cockers, x-mags and imps over the last year and I still reckon this comes out on top; mostly on consistency but also the accuracy and RoF is amazing.
If you can wait then a new version is coming out in the near future (although from the pictures it may be mostly cosmetic changes) otherwise if you have the money, it is definitely worth every penny.

shoots VERY FAST. i can just about shoot 20 bps the first time i tried
NOTHING. exept for price but it is worth it.
the eblade is the best thing that has ever happened to autocockers. at first the autococker was only known for its great accuracy. ever since the eblade came out it now has speed and accuracy which is a deadly mix. Best of all it has no blow back like a timmy.
go buy one and u will be amazed at how fast the autococker is now capable of shooting. by hearing an eblade fire u would easily mistake it for a DM4. that is what i did the first time i heard it fire.

'99 cocker - well modified - fast, but a chopper
Spyder TL - reliable old standby
Eclipse Factory Team Eblade - stock save for a 0-ring feedneck
68/3000 HPA tank with dynaflow reg on eclipse dropforward
Halo is a must
Does not chop, and RIPS out the paint - very smooth feeling and quiet
It's too easy to blow a whole hopper off the break
I have never shot a better gun. I've borrowed friends impulses, angels, timmys - nothing has the smooth feel under fire of the eblade. Gas efficiency is incredible.
Magnetic / optic trigger is easily adjusted to get just as you like it - from really snappy to smooth to so light that you can breathe on it and the marker will fire.
It is important to read the manual - especially about how to dial in the eye. The eye is sensitive to paint color differences, and you have to make sure that you know what you are doing when you set the eye sensitivity, otherwise the marker will slow down to a slow rate to avoid ball chop. - so you don't want to be borrowing a buddy's paint on the field. However, if the eye starts acting up cause your paint changes mid-game, you can easily turn the eye off, and with a Halo, I still have yet to chop a ball.
The best part of this gun is the power it gives you, accuracy and speed means domination in speedball - I have no problem dominating firelanes - often contending with 2-3 opposing players - only problem is that you WILL shoot more paint.
Pay close attention to your battery life, if that goes on the field you will have big problems - I recomend getting cheap 9volts and just using a fresh one every time you play
This is the best gun I have ever owned and have ever fired. If you can afford one, get it.
