What is offer with the Eclipse cocker is a completely new experience. They have taken all the very best features of the standard gun and improved them. They then took all the worst parts of the same gun and threw them away. All the components they use to make up the Eclipse are selected for 3 main reasons, performance, reliability and style. Around those components the rest of the gun is built.
The Planet Eclipse Eclipse Autococker is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I am an owner of the Eclipse Autococker. This gun shoots well and looks great. I shot around 1400 rounds of paint , one day off a 68/3000 (one fill) nitro tank and I never once broke or chopped a ball. I couldn' t believe it. The Eclipse is the easiest cocker I have ever shot. The roller sear provides a smooth pull and the gun does not jerk much at all when shooting. I can lob paint from 40 yards out and hit a target within 12 inches. Other cockers like the STO and free flow come with minor upgrades compared to what Planet Eclipse has to offer. I'm not trying to knock STO or Free Flow. All I'm trying to say is that the Eclipse Autococker is well worth its weight in gold.
There are only two minor drawbacks to the eclipse. I had to buy an expander for my hopper because the vertical feed is a little roomy and with out one your hopper will probably seat a little to loose. Also, the stock barrel it comes with is a little touchy. You are going to break a little paint with it if you're not careful about the size of the paint you buy. I think the bore is a little to small. Stick Pmi or Diablo. They seem to work pretty well.with the stock.
I said it before. The Eclipse autococker is well worth it's weight in gold. I feel it will beat out any other cocker on the market. Upgrade to a different barrel and compete with the pros or try and be careful about what paint you use. With the stock barrel I recommend a smaller bore paint ( Diablo-blaze,RPS-PMI,marbalizer,) stay away from the TC venom. Shoots great looks great, THEE best marker I have ever owned, or shot for that matter.
I do not own this gun but My teammate does. I have played alot of games with it so i feel i will be able to give a accurate review. ahhhh Accurate this gun is definately that I really love how accurate it is with the stock barrel this gun also operates of of low preasure like 325 or something this gun can really shot like 1700 shots off of a 68/4500 I like that also some people say cockers are i hard to shot well not really once you get use to it but this cocker you will love from the very first shot it really has the smoothest trigger pull i have ever shot for a cocker my team makes a joke that with this gun it is impossible to chop
a ball well that may not be true but if you match the ball to the barrel you won't chop any ball it has a rollor sear on the trigger the gun is awesome I comes with all The best parts not just a few it comes with dye sticky grips also
The stock barrel is a small bore but that is not bad just a problem that can be avoided in more then one way also the vertical feed is big so you may have to get a hopper spacer but just another problem easily solved
This Is in my opinion the best tournament ready autococker I have ever seen I have not shoot any cocker over 1300$ but all the other cockers for the same $$ 975-1100 are not even close to this gun this cocker is the best If you have the option to buy this gun get it you will never complain
green to black fade eclipse with blade, 14" smart parts AA and sidewinder regulator.
new barrel and maybe new reg.
- shares same internals with the super expensive evolution. made with some of the best autococker parts available.
- blade trigger is the best of all the swing triggers. (very smooth and shaped well)
- anodizing and milling is the best i`ve seen on any autococker.
- made in England, very well built.
- great reliability.
- great accuracy.
- nice sight ability and balance.
- best autococker or even semi in it`s price range.
- never should have came with the stock barrel. almost an insult given the cost and performance of this gun.
- wgp ergo reg is the only part of the gun i didn`t like. not the most consistent, comfortable, (air hose comes out the middle of the body?) or attractive reg for the eclipse.
an excellent high end autocoker with awsome looks. if you can`t afford it the wgp 2k2 is the next best gun.
