Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Electronically the Ego borrows much from the EclipseBlade stable, utilizing the tried and tested components of the original EclipseBlade and incorporating many of the newer features found in the E2. The cool blue backlit graphical LCD provides all of the information that you will need including firing mode, breech sensor status, adjustable game timer, shot counter and rate of fire indicator. A user friendly menu system allows all of the control parameters to be adjusted on-gun using three pushbuttons at the rear of the grip-frame, along with a fourth located inside the frame for tournament legality. Advanced trigger debounce algorithms mean that when configured correctly, Ego will not fall foul of the chrono judge and the low profile break-beam breech sensor provides a reliable anti chop solution, which allows the gun to shoot as fast as your loader can feed. The single, low power electro-pneumatic solenoid is one of the smallest in its class and the overall power consumption of the electronics means that 250,000 shots from a standard 9V battery is not unrealistic.

And as for the included accessories, you get the super-slick Eclipse On/Off/Purge system, the Eclipse Shaft Solo Barrel (.693), Clamping feed neck, Eclipse-Samurai 3 Swoop magnoptic fully adjustable 3-point trigger, Multi-density wrap-around grips, hose, elbows, the lot, all as standard, all in matching Eclipse Anodised finishes.

Review: I baught my EGO about a week ago. I took it out this weekend to play with it for the first time. The first thing I noticed about it was how light it was. With a Full Halo, Ultralight, and 68/45 Crossfire tank it's unbelievably light. It's just under two pounds with barrel and drop, so it's pretty light to begin with. Anyways, after I loaded up my halo, pods, and filled my tank I went out onto the field. 5.. .. .. .. .. GO GO GO! I start burning a steady rope of paint across to the other side of the field. This thing is unbelievably easy to burn with. I was shooting a constant 13-14 BPS. I burn about half my halo on the break, and bump up to a 30 bunker. Start layin a rope to the other side of the field, and then re-fill. Look to the left tape and see a guy ina laydown, and 3 shots he's gone. This thing is really accurate with an ultralight and X-Ball Podium Series Silver Paint. After I get that guy out I bump out to the Right tape. See a guy stickin out of the center eagle, and send a rope his way (later found out he had 6-7 breaks on him. That was all from just one snap.. THEY ALL HIT HIM!) I dropped the eagle, and dove into the snake. Crawled my way to the 50, and popped up and sent sum paint to the opposite tape. I see one of my guys runnin' down the side of the field, so I stand up and run-down the field. That was game. I was instantly hooked, and was glad I baugh one of these. Prior to goin out that weekend, I ran some tests. Accuracy, Efficiency, and Speed. With X-Ball Podium Seris Bornze Paint, and a 14" Dye UltraLightI was putting paint in a 6-7" spread (about the size of a dollar). I painted a target on my fence and stood on my deck (about 30-35 feet away) and shot. Off of a 3500 fill out of a 68/45 Crossfire Peanut I was able to get 3 bags of paint (roughly 1,500 rounds.. give or take) That was straight out of the box, So I was very impressed. I can't wait to see how efficient this thing will be when it's broken in. As for speed, it's incredibly easy to rip on. I can shoot a constant 14 BPS with this thing. It's a great gun so far, and I'm so glad I baught one.
Conclusion: For the Price tag 1150-1250 it's worth every penny IMO. I recommend going out and buying one as soon as you can. Several people at my field want to buy one now because of mine. I give this a 10, I love it beyond words.

All in my opinion;

Angel 4 - nice marker, fairly quick - not as quick as the EGO though, chops easily too in my experience though - even with Halo B

Raced Cocker - didn't particularly like the trigger, bit of kick - personal perference
Marker Setup: Planet Eclipse EGO Silver to Blue Fade
4500psi LP Crossfire Pre-Set
Evolution II (Z-Board)
V-Force Profilers
Recommended
Upgrades:
Well from my use of it so far, no upgrades are needed, Planet designed this marker as a more affordable marker without skimping on performance related parts, and they've done exactly that, and very well .. just one thing though, make sure you buy the right paint for it otherwise it will give you problems. I'll come onto this later.
Strengths: Speed
Accuracy
Air Efficient
Velocity - 277, 275, 278, 273

E2 !!!!
Weaknesses: Doesn't like bad paint.
Easy to shoot a LOT of paint

None really.
Review: Simply a marker that rocks out of the box.

Before I go onto the marker itself, I just want to share my paint problem :)

When I first tried putting some paint through it , it gave me some problems. This was completely down to the fact that I had a VERY bad batch of Severe Storm, the balls were so mis-shapened that they wouldn't even fit through the barrel! At first I wondered what was going on, but then I borrowed some Severe Hurricane (a grade better) from a friend and it was firing so sweetly, as accurate as you like at 14bps. All I say to people that have had bad experiences with paint using this marker - don't skimp, buy the best for the best, this marker won't settle for average paint - and anyway, it deserves better than that :). Hopefully next season I'll be feeding it Hellfire, so there shouldn't be a problem at all!

Itís hard to summarise a marker that is so good without using the normal phrases that other people use, but this marker simply rocks in my opinion. From the milling and finish on the marker to the working performance, brilliance. I havenít got the quickest fingers as yet, but the LCD board (obviously on the E2 frame :P) tells me Iíve shot 14 bps Ė which in comparison to other people is relatively slow, Iím proud of :) features on the LCD also contribute to the marker as a whole; game timer, alarm, ROF, shots etc. Out of the box this marker is ready to go, screw in your air system, clamp on your hopper (to the supplied Lo-Rise clamp feed), turn on the marker and youíre off. Easy as that. No first shot drop off, and if you do experience any, there are settings on the LCD that you can change/customise. This also goes for trigger bounce etc.
Conclusion: In my opinion, this is the best value marker out there on the market - go to a store or ask someone to have a rip on theirs. I know if someone asked me for a go on mine I'd be more than happy for them to, so they can see how nice it is :).

Off the top of my head I can't think of anything else to write, hope this has been helpful to those that have read it. Anything else you want to know etc, pm or mail me.

Review: I checked this thing out at the commanders cup like prowler and spyder (different teams).

It's everything I want in a marker. I can only walk cockers almost nothing else. I don't know

why. This is my next marker and the only one I want. I'm tryin to get my whole team to shoot

them. I'd recommend it to anyone no matter what marker they want to get. If they don't get

this they're gonna be sorry.
Conclusion: Best marker in the world.

Review: Well I got to test shoot this gun at NPPL Commander's Cup down in San Diego and this gun could very well be the next best thing. It rips like a timmy and is yet light like a shocker. This gun was testable at the Planet Eclipse booth, and well me and a friend (BSP-Prowler), shot it.

What I got from shooting it:
1. Its fast, this thing rips, end of story.
2. Light, Even with a heavy Halo B this thing was extremely light, good for a frontman i would have to say.

well heres the video: http://www.blackshirtspaintball.com/bspfd/files/EGO.wmv
Conclusion: Its an awesome gun, but it doesnt really bring anything revolutionary to the table such as extreme accuracy, consistency, effiecency, or speed, but I still give it a 9 cause this thing is awesome if you got the money to burn on it plus the paint your gonna need to feed it!
