How many people do you know that have a nightmare with there standard Anti-Double Ball !! They can be such a pain in the ass. These little puppies are Soooooo Cool. Two piece design which means you can take the ADB apart in second for repairs or to clean. Rubber Fang holds the ball in place so no sticky ball bearings. We have had these on test for nearly a year and the ADB hasn't needed to be replaced once !! We even give you a spare rubber JUST IN CASE ! The Impulse has 2 Anti Double Balls as standard and will need 2 Eclipse Fangz ADB To Work. If you have an Impulse without Vision you will need 2 x Short. If you have a Vision fitted you will need 1 x Short and 1 x Long.
The Planet Eclipse Fangz Anti Double Ball Detent is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Causes some friction
This detent is far more superior than the traditional ball detents. The ball detents tend to get stuff stuck in there, and cause problems. If you have a metal bolt, and a metal ball detent, you're going to be having deformities after a few cases of paint has gone through the marker. With the fang detent, you won't have to worry about that. The rubber fang would never damage your bolt, and it lasts a very long time. It's fully serviceable, and is cheap to replace the fang if it should wear out. My marker has cycled more than 15k times, and the fang is still holding up like new.
Dues to that it's rubber, the fang wedges in between the bolt and the body. When this happens, the bolt has a little more friction than normal when it needs to be cocked back. A little grease on the side of the bolt would fix this. You could also cut a groove on the bolt that would allow the fang to slip in to eliminate this minor issue. It's not noticeable at all when the marker is aired up, only for those that are looking for the ultimate smoothness in bolt action.
Great product from Planet Eclipse at a great price. With this detent, it's one less thing I have to service on my marker.

two piece design so they can easily be rebuilt,great looks.
none so far
Myself and the rest of my team all shoot Impulses,and recently we've all had the same problem with the normal ball-spring detents.Our detents ,stock and New Designz,kept shooting out during play.We decided to try a different approach and use the Fangz.We were pretty surprised with the results.At first we thought they would'nt last through one tournament,but they worked great.Not only did they last through case after case of paint, there are no visible marks on any of them,considering they are made of rubber thats surprising.I also think there is a noticeable difference in accuracy due to less uneven friction on the balls.We have also found less paint breakage since switching over,which equates to no double feeds even under fast strings.Also,like I had said before,they are rebuildable and come with extra stops.Other reviewers had a problem with the two-piece design coming loose during play,we have yet to have that happen.I will agree with one thing,don't use with a Halo with the Fangz,they won't be able to keep up with the force feed,and you will definitely make pudding in your gun.
I would recommend these to anybody who does'nt use a Halo.You'll never go back to spring detents.

Stock ball detents that use a Derlin or steel ball.
X-Mag, Freak, Evlution II, ACI Bulldog II
Very easy on the paint, won't blow out, broken paint doesn't affect it.
Doesn't work well with a Halo hopper.
I bought this detent because I was having a lot of ball breaks in cold weather, but the Planet Eclipse Fangz has turned out to be the best ball detent I've used on any gun. The manufacturer recommends that a drop of blue Loctite be used to hold it in place, I've placed a thin o-ring that I pulled off one of my old angel detents over the threads to hold it in place. The only down side that I mentioned earlier is that it won't work well with a Halo hopper, they put too much pressure on the balls in the stack and the Halo will actually force balls past the detent. You won't have problems using this product with any other hopper. These detents are made for all markers that use a threaded ball detent, make sure you get the thread type that fits your marker
Highly recommended product (if you're not using a Halo).

Does the job of the stock detents without affecting accuracy
Havnt found any in initial testing
I found that the stock detents, even when perfectly clean, adversely affected accuracy. They created a slight spin bacause they were uneven. I had a friend who got New Designz detents and they were still the same... uneven. I decided to get these because I dont want my detents to crap out in the middle of a game and because the stock ones affect the accuracy. I played a full day with them and I will never shoot stock detents again. These things are such a great improvment!!! I suggest them for ANY impulse owner.
For a few dollars more you can have a detent that will last longer and improve accuracy. Great buy!
I dont what the guy below me is talking about, they never come loose all you need to do is tighten it with a wrench and it stays. It did leave a mark on my derlin bolt but faint and I mean very faint, the mark was 1/6 the size of the stock detent's mark.
This isnt a must have upgrade but sure is good and looks way nicer. So if your stock detent breaks or something dont buy a new one to replace it buy an eclipse one.
impulse with eclipse ball detents, a 32* drop forward, ricochet AK hopper, and a pure energy 68/3000 tank
Not made of hard plastic.
It comes loose.
Well there isnt much to say about these, after all, their just ball detents. But they really are an improvement over the stock ones, and im glad they made this, cause i didnt wanna go through what i did with the stock ones. The eclipse are cool, they send you 3 diffrent colored jewel stickers.(red, blue, and clear) Another advantage is being able to take them apart. the top half unscrews from the bottom so you can take the rubber thingy out and clean it or replace it. The rubber things are very small and dont get in the way much. Make sure you always keep them tightened though, they tend to come loose after a while.
Overall, this is a good product. It is 10X better than the stock ones, and looks cooler to. They are pretty inexpensive, except that you have to buy 2 of them. they should just sell them in packages. I would get these if your stock ones broke, or if you just want your gun to look a little better.
