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.

DEFINATELY A BOARD! This gun shoots well stock. But with a board it RIIIIIIIIIPS!!!!
Accurate, FAST, Effecient, LIIIIIGHT, and NO KICK if setup right.
Definately price... but used are decent prices.
This gun is just flat out RIDICULOUS!!! I have used all the high end guns out there and I've seen a trend that keeps re-appearing. All the guns have ONE or TWO great things about them, and then the rest sucks. A DMC is FAST and ACCURATE, But is big, has alot of orings, and doesn't have any unique milling. But the 05 EGO has it all. I've owned this gun for less than a month and already I've noticed its SUUUUUPER smooth, if you set this thing up right you wont feel ANYYY kick. The balls just fly out of your gun like nothing. The second thing I noticed is how light it is. Now im not one to whine about how heavy a paintball gun is, but near the end of the day your gun starts to get very bothersome. With the 05 ego you just walk by and laugh at the other people who are whining cause you can barely feel your ego in your hand.
Overall I give this gun a 10. Although I do think its very expensive, you get what you pay for. If you want a gun thats super fast, smooth, accurate, light, and doesn't have crappy internals with a ton of orings to change and lube then buy an 05 ego!!

Bought this gun used for 900. But it came with all the ups including a custom anno job by grunt ball. im writing the review according to the key strenghts I listed.
-Accuracy. This marker is incredibly accurate. Shot some paint through it and it was ball on ball accuracy. At long distances it had maybe a 5 inch spread, but i don't mind as long as im laying down lots of paint to where it has to go. which brings me to my next subject..
-Speed. This gun is super fast. espically with the tadao m7. The trigger is extremely easy to walk so i could throw paint down the field. im not sure how many firing modes the stock board has but i have a tadao and it has 12 firing modes with 35 "break out" modes. The tadao board has a interesting mode called "Gangster" mode which is pretty help full for back players that need to lay down some serious paint from the break. "Gangster mode basically allows you too shoot fully automatic until you let go of the trigger then its back to the original programmed mode.
-Milling. The 2005 ego has some nice milling on it as well as color options. But mine was custom annoed by Gruntball, so it looks really pretty. its a chromed creamy orange is the best way to describe it. The gun and its pieces really flow together to make the gun that much better. The only thing i don't really like is the feed neck..its slightly off to the left. it doesn't matter to much but i like my guns as symmetrical as possible. but i guess the feedneck helps becuase i don't have to lean my head so much to the right to shoot.
-Weight. The EGO is extremely light. especially with my setup on it. Its super easy to snap from bunkers and gog kids..
This EGO is extremely good for the price i paid and im very happy with it. If u have the opportunity to pick on up don't hesitate. try to upgrade the board to a tadao or something if possible. great gun just bummed on the feed neck alittle.
B&E contrast kit
halo b loader
star frame(makes just like an 06)
dart or cure bolt(both perform amazeing)
everything else is perfect
Can adjust anything on it
Little bit of kick
Hates cold weather
I bought this gun used, but it has done an amazeing job, shoot fast, really fast, and with the right upgrades can be better than an ego 06. overall this gun is the way to go or there newer models, Eclipse has done a great job with all products. Shoots well when traeted well, i did take it out in a bit of cold weather, it had some problems with paint, but it was still good.
This gun was and still is amazing, if you need a gun this is it, maybe a little expensive but worth it.
not similar, but a original matrix- pos campared to an ego. it does NOT compare.
clear to blue fade 05 ego with 06 bolt
Matrix lcd with too many ups to name(and its broken)
none are really needed. i guess a bolt, but other than that, the marker rips straight up.
Easy to operate
Easy to maintain
When I got the gun, it had had two owners before me. Lucky for me they both were gun whores and didnt use the gun at all.
The ego is super easy to maintain and the eyes are wonderful, so you will never be left after a day of play cleaning out the breech or barrel. I cannot see why you would want anything different. After about two cases of paint through it, just put a few drops of oil in the rammer, some in the asa, and lube the regs every few months and this gun will treat you well. It is hella fast and will never go down on you.
The nice part is, if you are short on cash, you can leave the gun pretty much stock and will perform just as good as any other high end with "tons of ups!"
so far out of about 15 cases of paint, I only had a barrel break because i was using old paint.
Great buy, i would recomend it to someone who doesnt like to clean or lube things or someone short on cash. save up some cash, buy a used 05 for 600 and your set!

Well i got to use my buudy johns in a speed ball game at camelot paintball ( only feild near my house still 45 min drive) great feild crawling with great players always . This gun has such a smooth trigger pull easy to lay ropes of paint anywhere on the feild.
Egos are fast becomming more popular over the past year or so seince they came out belive the hype or it'l get you
-Dark Ego-Same thing just more exsclusive.
2006 Dark Ego, Angel G7, 2005 Ego
-Nothing is really necessary, although I do reccoment a cure or Dart bolt to help with shooting fragile paint.
-Very easy to maintain.
-No spring return trigger pull
-looks very blocky
-no swivel feature for the inline regulator
I purchased a 2005 Ego after deciding that my previous marker (Angel G7) was a bit too heavy for me. Upon recieving it I have been heavily impressed and have since purchased a 2006 Dark Ego for the 2006-7 NCPA Season. For anyone who is wondering, the Dark Ego and the 2005 are very similar with very little performance changes, the main reason I got it is for the slight weight change and spring return trigger.
I have always been fairly skeptical of Open-bolt, Electro-pnuematic markers, thus I was a little bit worried before getting this marker. The Ego has completely changed my views on this, however, and I do not think I will be leaving the Planet Eclipse family any time soon.
The Ego is really good at everything that matters in this price range. It is just as accurate as everything else with a good paint to barrel match and good paint. It is very light and compact. It is ridiculously air efficient (I get about 3 pods and two hoppers off of a 45/3000 fill, and 1800 shots off a 68/4500). In addition to this, it is very easy to maintain, even with a limited understanding of its inner workings. The only real gripe I have with the 05 Ego is the lack of a spring trigger return, and that is just personal opinion. As far as speed goes, it can shoot as fast as you would ever need it to (in excess of 30bps) and there is no problem reaching high speeds on it.
The marker is louder then a DM6 and has more kick (due to the inherint differences in Electro-pnuematic over SFT style), but neither of those factors really matter. Very rarely will sound level make a difference in a tournament, and as for kick, it's pretty easy to compensate.
Overall, I have been more then impressed with this marker. It blows my G7 out of the water and has really improved my game. The only problems I have with the 2005 Ego have been fixed in the 2006 and 2007 models and those problems were miniscule to begin with. Although I feel like if you are looking at markers of this level you cant rely on other's opinions (at this point, it's all personal preference), I would not hesitate to suggest the Ego. I also feel that it's telling that our 3 man NCPA team uses 2 Ego's (2006 and Dark) and a DM6.
2006 Star Frame
2006 Star Trigger
Tadao muashi 7 board
Speed, Consistency, Looks, Speed, Speed, Looks.
So when i got this gun i was really impresed with the work done to it.
I mean its flawless everything in it is beautifull
Trully a work of art.
I have never felt so powerfull with something besides this gun.
I had a Vlocity on it and shot 19 on mild ramp
Then go a Halo with speed feed and shot 23 on mild ramp
Not all it can do!
I purchased this item and it came with the starframe and trigger (4 point adjustment). The star frame made the marker look a whole lot better. Out of the box, I was really amazed at how great this marker actually looks in person. The feel to the marker is superb. I took the marker apart to see how the parts works and its actually very simple. Taking out the bolt and putting it back in was a piece of cake as well. I can just imagine that in the future, if I do get a ball chop, cleaning it would be very easy.
I shot the marker and it shot flawlessly. It has a very cool eye feature system in which it will tell you if the marker detects a problem with the eye. If the problem is fixed, your gun will let you know and you go back in playing normally. HOwever... if there is a problem with your gun, it will cap your max ROF on semi mode up to 10bps. Most of the loaders can load faster than that so you most likely won't get a chop.
THe on/off purge system is very neat as well. I didn't get a chance to test consistency as there was no chrono. HOwever, accuracy and speed was excellent. I was able to hit the same target over and over again.
I am using stock barrel and that seems to be fine. The barrel is nicely made, honed, and engraved. I don't see a problem with the feedneck as some people might want to get a lower one. I personally think its perfectly fine.
The marker is very thin and doesnt take up much room. However, I do recommend using either a stuby or 45/45 tank as the larger ones might make it fit awkwardly in your arms.
I couldn't get my ego to bounce but i'm sure if you really want it to bounce, you can make it. But if you don't like bounce, the TT filters on the 1.06 board is good enough (version i have). There isn't much custom settings you really need as factory stock settings are excellent already. Another thing about the board I like is the eye detection system. With the eyes on, if it reads a ball, it will show you (unlike the eclipse eblade).
Marker is also very light as compared to my ion and DM6.
I recommend getting a used one. It will be your primary marker. It hasn't failed me yet and I doubt it will for you.
i use a halo rip drive hopper and cross fire n2 tank, and stock barrel(it is dead accurate)
none so far. This gun has everything great on it. the trigger,eye, great barrel and everything else imanginable.
Extremely good barrel, never chops because of eye, this thing rrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiipppppppssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it shoots so fast.
Ummmmm...... none so far.
I just got this gun a couple days ago and i tested it out and it rips. it shoots so fast. after i was done i fell in love with it so i bought it. and since then i have been joining tournaments alot. Also I play on a five man, three man, and seven man and im looking for more players.
Great gun for a great price. You should definently buy it if you have the money.
I have used a Dark Intimidator, Spyder Fenix ACS and several highly modded Ions

The Virtue board!!!
This gun is fast, accurate, light and good looking. Need I say more?
The only problem that I have found is that this gun is a gas hog
This gun is fast, accurate, light and good looking. Out of the box this is a customised gun but, with the right upgrades this gun is off the hook. I have personally shot mine on semi at 19bps. The problems are it is a gas hog and you need a fast loader or the gun is useless because the loader would be holding it back. If you put the same upgrades I have put on my gun, you will have proffesionals asking to trade guns with you!!!
It is the ultimate paintball gun!! GO GET ONE RIGHT NOW!!!
This marker is absolutely insane with the right upgrades, but the gun is a gas hog and because of the price of the marker and all the parts needed to make it shine I am giving it a 9 out of 10.
