Color - only black qev I've seen
Seems really light for its size
First, a qev is a qev; they let excess air vent quickly, and that's the extent of their usefulness.
That being said, if you are an A5 shooter, you know that the Palmer is the only one anyone ever recommends, and that's a shame, because I like this one much better. It's the only black one I've ever seen, it's extremely small, and it costs a bit less than than the Palmer's. It fits perfectly, and looks great compared to other QEVs. It's basically invisible on an A5.
I've done so much to this marker that I can't really say how much of an improvement it made by itself over a stock gun, but the Vortex and it combined (they were installed together) have made a considerable increase in ROF with the WAS grip. It operates at 22 bps reliably, but I run it at 18, and NEVER chop paint or skip. I could probably run 25, but I believe I'd be cleaning the Flatline more than I prefer.
This is a must, and others have said, when you run an E-Grip, especially a WAS or APE. The Cyclone can only do so much when left stock, and these electronic grips can push right through those limits.
Obviously, I like this QEV. It should make a noticeable improvement on your gun, even stock. Another advantage with the A-5 - you only need one.

Hard to install.
It makes my ion cycle a whole lot faster. I was shooting around 20 without it, and now its up near 25-26. My VLocity has trouble keeping up with my ion now. It is a pain in the ass to install, i ended up having to cut the body back a little.
Great for anyone who's looking for a cheap upgrade that pays itself off many times.

Faster Cycling rate
Well, there isn't much to say. Its a great QEV and works flawlessly. Looks cooler than some other QEV's and coming from Eclipse, you know it's going to work very well. I actually noticed the bolt have a faster cycle. I have yet to test how efficient it is as far as paint. I'll update when I know.
Highly Recommended! I can't think of any way they could make this better, so 10/10.

If you have an eblade these are a great upgrade. Along with these id highly reccommend the eclipse Ram. The QEVs make a pretty big differance for such a cheap upgrade. You can find them for 10 bucks a peice. Once i installed mine my gun cycled much snappier and smoother. These really help bring out the potenial speed the eblade has to offer.

Makes your gun sound cool
The first time I shot my Ion with my brand-spankin'-new Quick Exhaust Valve from Planet Eclipse, I about cried with joy. It was starting to look, feel, sound, and be regarded as a real high end marker (contrary to what I thought when I first bought it). Efficiency was also greatly improved.
As of now, after about 6 months of using the gun, I blew the QEV. I don't know how it happened, but once I found my pressure at 210 psi on accident. I would have expected my solenoid to blow first, and was surprised that it blew at such a low pressure (if it was the pressure that blew it).
It is a GREAT Ion upgrade, I would say one of the most important and primary. GET IT :tup:.

Makes your cycle time really quick.
Decreases your chase of short stroking
Hard to install depends on your ram.
When I saw these on the cocker on the wall, ofcourse i wanted them on mine. It took me and my store owner like 2 hours to install cbecause my system X ram wazent the best ram to instal them on. We had to heat it and drill in out and wat not to fit them on, but when i got all new o-rings and what not it waz quick. Its increases your cycle time enought to notice. Very good upgrade.

Cycles faster (even for a mech)
This upgrade is one of the most important upgrades you can get for your cocker. Its not expensive either and you do get a big difference in cycle rate even if you use a mech (i would imagine it would be even better with an electro cocker). Its the best thing to get to compliment a new ram. My only weakness would be that when you put them on your ram, dont overtighten like me. I overtighten one and i broke one qev. but i mean thats because i diddnt really know what i was doing at first... but other than that , you should be fine.
Improves cycling rate,
Easy to fit,
Look the dogs bollocks
Very easy to break threads when tightening.
First installed these beauties on my mech cocker and they really did improve my cycling rate!! dropped my trigger pull to about 3mm and i was firing 9 balls a sec over the chrono, which for a mech is no mean feet!
Very easy to install but i have found that not all qev's are equal,with some i have used not lining up correctly when tightened on the ram.This has resulted in me breaking a couple of threads off on the qev's and leaving the thread in the ram itself! not good at all!
The qev's themselves are an excellent product and with them you can see a marked improvement on BPS, i now have an E1 frame and the thing rips with qev's on.Anyone that thinks they don't improve a markers performance need to try them and see the difference they make!
Like i stated earlier ,the only downside is the thread being very weak, and if you tighten them more than hand tight they will crack..or break off (they are made of brass and are VERY brittle).This makes using thread lock/sealant a must to stop any possible leaks. i would gladly pay a bit more for a stronger version so as i don't have to worry about tightening them to the ram.
Great product , looks cool, good performance boost for little money.
Need to be careful when installing,and use a thread lock/sealer to stop them leaking.
i give this product 10 for performance but an overall score of 7 due to the durability factor,these things are going to take some knocks during play and i would like them to be a bit tougher.
Well my freind bought this for his ion. when i was installing it, i kept thinking how timy this thing was. it is very small. some of the otehr QEVs for ions are 2-3 times larger. part of the reason is because tehy have a quick disconnect, but really that is not needed. because of tis size it was easy to install in an ion. it fit inside the body very nicely, and looks very very nice. the milled E in the side is sweet. if i paid 600 plus for an E cocker i would not put any otehr QEV on my gun. (some other qevs are brass and ugly, this one is milled and shiny and looks awsome). because of its size, the cutting of the ion body was even less so it made it less noticable. once again eclipse makes a quality product.
oh yeah and the guy below me said 2 of these were 60 bucks? are you kidding? my freind got his for 7 bucks. that should be 14 for 2, tehn the ram. i would start shopping around buddy, your getting ripped.
IMO teh best qev on the market. they all do teh same thing, but this one does it with style.

This QEV is awesome, i know it is designed for the autococker but yo u can put it on the ion, my ion shoots so much faster now, i couldnt believe it, it was crazy, i love this thing, my gun shoots fast w/ rebound on before i bought it, i buy the ion, w/ out rebound my gun shot as fast if not faster than before but w. out rebound
Buy this for your ion and/or autococker, helps alot! so much faster
