The Planet Eclipse EGO 2007 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Fastest ego ever made very nice new body which is more compact than the 06 ego. The airport is nicer and it is easier to shoot with because of that and your tank doesnot move around as much. The gun is perfect and you should only upgrade the board to a virtue so you can rip even better with it.
I think that people that want to upgrade from an 06 or 05 ego this would be the best one to buy because of its weight and accuracy. I think that this is the best gun ever made I have compared this to my dm7 and it shoots better.

05 ego, 06 ego, majority of high ends (even though they arent exactly "similar" to the 07 ego.
Custom anno'd 07 Ego polished clear with blood red parts, bump pistons, gangstard' jr. and a Cp 48/45
bump pistons (not necessary but they make my gun shoot a little more consitent than stock).
not a lot of kick when broken in
bore size of the stock shaft (not too annoying though)
Well i got the 07 Ego back in december of 2k6. I believe it shot amazing the first time it shot except for a few kinks here and there which were resolved after breaking it in.
Trigger/debounce: This is my favorite trigger yet and you can adjust the magnets, wheter or not you want it to touch the micro, the spring, and the stopper. If you keep the debounce at around 5, you will have no problems playing in tournaments and keeping your gun at a consitent and fast speed.
Kick/quiteness etc.: There is a good amount of kick/ sound that is produced from the 07 ego in the beginning but once broken in and changing a few settings (such as moving the dwell to 15 and putting the lpr to 1 turn in from flush) the gun is very quiet and has barely any kick
Consistency: after break in (and if you keep the stock settings) it usually does around +/-4 but since i have the lpr 1 turn in from flush and dwell at 15 to reduce kick and get beter effiency i get like +/-10
EFFICIENY!!!!! After breaking in the 07 ego i was able to get almost a box out of a full 68/45 and i was amazed that for the whole day i only need to fill 2 times ( i used a lot of paint)
Maintenance: The only necessary maintenace is taking out the rammer and bolt and dropping some OIL on it, and the to lube the hpr and lpr piston (all of this takes 5 minutes) thats it. The only problem i have had so far was when my trigger pin fell out i didnt know what to do, so i was able to take the frame off in around 5 minutes and found a screw that was loose, i tightened it and it worked. Easiest gun to clean i have had let.
Board: pretty much a maniac but with a opto and a micro switch
Speed: obviously since its an ego, you can easily shoot 20-maybe 30 with the right loader and settings.
Overally on how it shoots: I have been shooting it for plenty of months now and i have not shot a better gun (except the sl74 but that isnt fair). It is light which gives you quicker snaps, the ball detents are big enough to keep from double feeding, just to many good things to say about this gun to remember lol.
Buy it if you have 900-1250 in your pocket it. If you have less, save up If you have more start looking at the 07 ego or the Sl

Fast, accurate, very efficient, no kick, micro switch and opti switch!
Nothing at all!
First of all, when I got my new EGO7, it was in a hard metal case with latches on it. I was very impressed. I took it out of the padded case and had a look. It was SEXY! I noticed that it was noticebly lighter than all of the previous Egos. When I aired it up and started shooting, I loved the trigger. It is very adjustable so you can make it perfect. It also came with the standard Ego LCD, but this one has more firing modes and is uncapped, so there is no need to buy an aftermarket circuit board. It was extremely accurate and fast as well, and I tried different types of paint but they all worked very well with it. I was able to get 7 Pods and a Pulse off of a fill. It also comes stock with a 2 pc SHAFT barrel and an 07 Cure bolt. The grips are also better than the Ego6 because it doesn't have the metal part that tarnishes, these are soft, durable, rubber grips. I love everything about this gun!
I highly reccommend it. It is by far the best gun on the market and the best for the price. I love it!
Just about all Dm's - They have slightly better shot grouping, and are a bit quieter.
None are needed... however, I have heard great things about the Zick Kit.
- Efficiency (5 pods and a loader from 2000psi in a 68)
I bought this gun new from PB Shack in RI back in February of this year. Since I bought it, it has'nt gone down at all, and has never chopped a ball. I've had a few barrel breaks with brittle paint in the cold, but thats it. The gun comes setup well out of the box.. no need to mess with it.
Buy one. Seriously, it's worth the cash over the 05/06's. It's worth the slight loss in accuracy coming from a DM when you realize how reliable and effecient it really is.
If tested this marker a few times now and i changed my opinion no doubt. this marker is really fast and light and has great reactivity it is really easy 2 snap with and really accurate. this marker is one of the best although i would rather have a sl74 but who wouldnt? either way its a great marker.
I would get this marker if i had the cash overall its a great marker

None. the gun is just about perfect if its your thing.
im going to start off by saying if you really like the timmy/ego layout, this is the perfect gun. im not saying its th ebestgun made, some people like spool valves, or teh layout of an angel, etc etc. but other than preference, there is no downside to this gun.
obviously, it looks insane. deifintely the collest looking ego. it is also noticeably lighter than an 06. not a whole ton, but a decent amount lighter. once you get ego light, your kinda used to it. the gun feels IMO far better than any ego. the grip frame seems slimmer ot me, and the reg/trigger guard have been a little repositioned so you can get your fingers completely around the grip. from those that dont like regs too close to teh gun, this is a huge improvement. trigger feels amazing, far superior to other ego triggers. the gun is just stright up the best looking/feeling ego IMO. it also seems much smaller to me, im sure it is, but if not it sure did seem like it. teh gun is VERY slim from the back.
basically, besides better trigger etc, eclipse got rid or a ram housing, and made the ream fit into teh body of teh gun itself. ingenious design, and took a ton of weight/size off teh back of the gun. probably one of teh ways tehy mae it so light. it also makes for less parts, and an easier to work with gun.
gun comes with a great on off asa, new type of noid, great baord, the 07 CURE bolt, and a spectacular trigger. teh gun needs absolutely nothing.
well, basically it will shoot like the most upgraded, lightest, smallest ego available. it has very littel kick, and the new trigger is very fast. teh paint wasnt that great and it was ball on ball. i do have to say i did notice a very arched trajectory compared to my pm6.
If you wanta brand new ego, this gun is definitely worth the money. the new parts are amazing, and the gun is a much better feeling gun with new stuff. if you want used to save money, thats one story, but if your thinking of an 06, buy this, you will not be dissapointed. like i said b4, other may have a preference of a shocker, cyborg, angel etc. but of your a fan of the ego.timmy layout, this gun is perfect.
nexus ego 06 timmies dm7 2006 ego quests legends pretty much every highend
Custom anno'd green and platinum accented nexus ego with hybrid grip and tadao board, ti rammer
2007 ego light trooper (white with black)
Maybe a barrel if you dont like the bore size (.693)
it doesn't need any upgrades
Absolutely nothing (unless you dont like people asking to see your gun)
Ok so ever since this ego has been out (right before Xmas) i made a goal to get it. i worked my @$$ off for it and it finally came in the mail. i hugged the UPS guy and very carefully opened the box.
it comes in a plastic case which you can carry on to the field. once opened, a very nicely laid out plan. it comes with lube, the gun, barrel, stickers, allen keys, and a barrel condom.
i immediately put my tank on it and shot half a case. this thing is perfect right out of the box. it was fast and unbeleivably light. my whole setup is 5 lbs. (cp 48 tank, vlocity, and 07 ego). it shot very smooth with very minimal kick. this is by far the best gun right out of the box. all these things happen even before you break the gun in. i got 6 pods and a hopper (for sure more once its broken in).
as far as looks, this is by far the nicest looking ego made. great sleek milling and you can see how much detail goes into each of these guns.
as far as accuracy, right out of the box, the stock barrel is awesome and with a good paint to bore match, its ball on ball. for those like me who ask ok...what does that mean? i shot 50 feet away with litterly 18 out of the 20 in the same exact spot.
fastness? HAHA. it will go as fast s your hopper will feed, and guess what? thanks to the 07 cure bolt, no chops. not even one...
If you continue to play paintball for at least another year, this investment is most definitely worth the money. its everything you can want in a gun. smooth like a dm, maintenece liek an ego, lightness, everything you can possibely want

Well I got this EGO7 as soon as it came out. PE said 6 cases to break in, well I shot 15+ and it still kicks like a horse. I got it teched at HB but still kicks just now like a donkey. Only nice thing is that its LIGHT.
Angel 1 - Similar rate of fire, just as light and very tight.
DM 7 - Similar rate of fire, just as light but the kick difference is minimal.

I have had this gun for 3 weeks and it has been shooting just fabulously. Over the chrono on the first day the fluctuations were a bit high but the efficiency was very good. The ego is very light and easy to wield in a game. It is very well designed making it a very comfortable marker. The work on it is very simple and there is even a virtual tech tour availible (actionvillage.com). Customer service is excellent better than any other representative I have ever talked with. The gun is easily customisable with many CCU kits and upgrades. The ego7 had minimal kick while shooting at speeds of over 30 bps confirmed by goldwaving and 2 seperate shot counters and the Ego7 board. The gun is really the total package.
Please leave a comment.
I would recommend this to any user out there and I prefer it over any gun I have ever shot. For those whom say egos have terrible kick, mine has just as much kick as a DM7 out of the box and I shall see what it is like tommorow with my new settings. This gun is phenomenal but I think perfection is in the eye of the beholder but I don't care who that is when it come to an SL74 which is the epitomy of paintball today.
Timmies, Shockers, PMs and DMs, other Egos...None compare..
Stock baby...thats all this gat needs...

Absolutely none....don't even get the barrel kit.......
Bolt Board...almost everything
ASA is a little big, but that little weight doesn't matter.
I have played with my share of guns, and I never thought that there could be a gun as well made as the Ego 7. In my honest opinion this gun is by far the best all purpose gun on the market today. It may not be as quiet as a DM, or as accurate as any spool bolt gun. What it lacks in those categories it makes up for in speed and consistency. I put some really old crappy paint through this gun, had one break, the next two were a little swirly but then the following shots got all the crap paint out and the awesome accuracy came about again. This gun is great for any position on the field. It is extremely lightweight and still shoots incredibly fast.
I recommend this gun to anyone who wants to step up their game out on the field. Get this gun, you will not regret it.
