The Planet Eclipse EGO 2007 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
i've owed most high end paintball guns at some point or another
07 ego gun metal gray, halo hopper, deadly wind barrel, angel air 68/4500 lp tank
possibly barrel kit but factory is great
Fast, accurate, reliable, efficant, super light
Loud if that is a weakness
This is my 3rd ego and it is even better than the last by far. This marker weighs 1lb 15oz on with battery and factory barrel, 1lb 13oz with my carbon fiber barrel so it is super light. The board is great no need to upgrade ever it offers all that will be need for tournys and for fun. You can even put in your own setting and save them. I'm getting about 1600-1700 shot from my 68/4500 which is what PE advertises. The accuracy is the best i've seen from any marker. i know paint to barrel match is susposed to be the key but all of my egos have been amazing with the factory barrel, out shooting all of my other guns including my dm6. The marker is easy to maintain and field strips easy. I also don't carry a swab because it just never breaks paint. The only things i'm going to complain about is the price $1100 and that mine is fairly loud but does seem to be getting quieter.
I am completely happy with my 07 ego and would highly recommend it to anyone that can afford it.

07 VICIOUS EGO, Halo with v35 board, crossfire 68/45
When i received my ego I was totally amazed be every feature about this gun... it was super small, it was light, fast, and it was the coolest milling i have ever seen on a pl ego and also standard ego.
so when i took it to my Field it shoot ropes like no other!!! on ramp, i empty a hopper in 8 seconds!!! now that's fast... and it also hade pin point accuracy, it probably had about a 2 to 3 inch radus of a circle.... so basicly this gun is completely indescribable.... but an another thing about it is that u can make different settings and save them on either user 1 or 2 and if u want one or the other you can just switch... also it comes with psp mode, nppl mode and millennium mode.
This gun is pricy but it is worth every single penny... So if u have the funds you should get this gun
Accurate- this is a pretty accurate gun and barrel for a small feild like 3 one 3 but once you play on xball and what not, it gets a little unaccurate so you might wanna think on getting a ultralight almost every stock barrel is like this so this is not so bad.
Agustable- this is the most agustable gun i used yet the trigger has 4 agustable points and a micro switch or a opti switch you can agust it just how you like it and all the Modes and dwell game timmer how fast you shoot and expeshally ramp are agusstable too
Light- this is probably the lightest gun i held it makes it realy easy to hold with one had while reloading or something
Fast- this gun shoot up to 42bps extremly fast you cant even see the bolt going back and forth
Loud- it is kind of load but in a hi piched way not like a big bang
Stock- every thing is great on this gun there is realy no need to upgrade any thing for this gun only if you are picky on something like i got a new barrel because when i am break shooting the streem of paint is a little unaccurate
This is a great gun for the price 1250 is expensive but a dye is 1400 and the ego is better so get the ego if you have the money.
Just put cha a new barrel if you want but shoots great out of box!
It feels great to hold
Its a little louder than some markers but it's still good to go.
This is the best gun I have ever owned, here's the break down.
Accuracy: The gun is very accurate out of the box. Put a new barrel kit on it an it is very accurate.
Weight: Yea it's no lie, it is the lightest gun on the market. and it feels incredible in your hands.
Sound: Not the quietest gun I have ever shot but it is not near as loud as the 06.
Air: It is also really good on air, I can get a hopper, and around 10 pods out of my 68/45.
Maintance: HA. It's so easy to clean it's not even funny. Throw some lube on the ram and lrp an your done.
If you have the cash get one. It will be the only gun you will ever need. It's probably the best gun for any serious tourny players.
Seriously? nothing.. maybe if your a bore size freak then a barrel set.
Super Out of this world light, trigger, assembly, price, no kick
You are joking? emm envy?
Well i assembled some ego's from total scratch at Planet Eclipse, for a tech course based on the 07 ego(Thnx planet)!
The first thing i noticed wsa the amount of quality and respect are put into these beasts. To cut the crap, the marker is very solid and very well built, i got to shoot some
and WOW KCUF me silly was it light and hardly had any kick to the previouse models, also the trigger! ah only if i can explain how soft and light the trigger is, shooting that trigger is like running a hot knife through butter.
Plus what most of you would probably like is the optical and the micro switch on one board!
honestly in my own words "the ego revolutionized paintball markers, the ego7 revolutionized the ego"
get to try it, its worth it...
Iv used the marker now for a month nearly. My team and i shot it at the athens eepl league and dam did these baby's fly! we emptied 18 boxes of paint(tomahawk finest) and the whole team had ONLY 1 chop in two days..., no1 had any sort of probelm apart from some small leaks and thats about it. they really work flawlessly and are so comfy when you get use to it... most certain its the best marker EVER made... shot alot of markers but nothing can match to this.

DMs, Shockers (SFT & NXT), Protos (Rail and PM6).. and Ions.. but thats not similar at all
2007 Ego - all stock
2006 SP Shocker - Dynasty Board, HE Bolt, Pepperstickz
Half of an Ion
The fastest hopper you can buy. I own a V35 Halo and it can't keep up.
It's an ego, need I say more?
I just picked up my 07 ego about an hour and a half ago, then came home and shot about 1000 balls out of it. Not a single chop. Videos, pictures, and words can not show just how small this gun is. It's like holding a chihuahua puppy. It's extremely adjustable. If you choose opto for your trigger setting you can change at what point it is considered a trigger pull and when it is considered a trigger release... WITHOUT TOUCHING THE TRIGGER (It's all in the board!). I own a V35, yes that means 35 balls a second and it couldn't keep up. I maxed out my hopper. I got it up to 43 (some say it maxes out but oddly enough I had peak ROF selected and it said 43). And it's an ego. The name says it all. It blows the XSV ego out of the water. The only thing I have seen that is wrong with it, the eye wiring can be seen right above the grips. But you can see only like a millimeter of the wiring. Not a big to do about it. It's still worth the 1250 bucks it costs. I still give it a ten even with that defect.
I just played at a tourney today with it and it was amazing. All the people on my team that own dm6's want one now. I have a 68/45 tank, I shot 7 pods and a hopper and still had 3000 psi left. Amazing.
I've shot about 6 cases through it, shooting uncapped ramping as fast a pulse can shoot. And not a single ball has chopped in all 12,000 balls that have been shot.
Get this gun.

I picked my Ego7 up from the first batch at Badlands in Toronto. well, I actually work there, so i had my name on it really. but yeah, It was one of the gun's that had solenoid issues, so before i even used it, i swapped it out with a new noid.
I aired it up, and it shot like a dream, although it was a little inconsistent. So I tore down the reg, lubed/cleaned, then i was getting +/- 2 fps.
What I really like about the Ego line of markers, is how adjustable they are. The debounce settings are just crazy. if you really wantes to, you can make that trigger crazy-bouncy.
Now, I know its recomended to run Ego's on HPA, but I bought a LP Empire fuel tank, and i absolutely love it. This gun is very consistent. I got almost a case and a half off of one fill.
Maintenance is a breeze, Yank out the bolt, stick a squeegee down there. Unscrew your ram cap, pull out the ram, but a lil oil on there, and you're good to go.
The Barrel. The barrel is great, comes in a standard .693 bore size. I have only one problem with it tho. When I am laning, its dead on. Ball on Ball for sure. BUT, im a front man, I hardly ever lane, and I find that when I'm one-balling, its accuracy is somewhat lacking. Maybe I just can't snap shoot, lol, but I've never had this problem with like an Ultralite.
Now, the customer service. Eclipse is taking the paintball scene by storm. They undoubtedly have by far THE BEST customer service. If you ever have a problem with your eclipse marker, they will see to it, that the problem is fixed before you get off the phone.
Ego 7. Great buy if you have the money, if not, start saving. Once you go with eclipse, you never go back.

-blue/black '06 shocktech shocker, black warped sports grip frame, blue NDZ 15 deg reg adapter, HE bolt,blue dust Hybrid bolt guide, PE 68/4.5k N2, halo w/v35/ndz stage 2 od pulley, evil 14" pipe
-06 gold shocker stock execpt for trigger
- 05 icd promaster black
barrel (used stock and 14" .689 stiffi), fast hopper
fast as you dont want to know =)
light as a feather
Very nice milling
just tried at a field while on vacation, also had a nice Ironmen owned DMC which pretty much kicked ...... but all eyes were on the ego (naturally) I had the liberty of testing it but my halo batteries died mid-game =( but who cared, hte gun friggin ripps when you put it on ultra-fast ramping =0
awesome gun, if you can find one and have the cha-ching DO IT, I can not express this enough
Its an Ego, Therefore IMO it needs no ups, but for sombody picky a barrel kit would be nice( planet is releasing one soon :Tup:)
VERY FAST LOADER
No weaknesses IMO, like i said above
Alright, First off, I have shot about every gun on the market before I got the 07 Ego and I can say that this gun is the best one I have EVER shot. It shoots increadibly smoothly and its very tight. Alright so on to the main review
Accuracy- I have no gripes here, the ego has constantly peformed exellent with every type of paint i have put through it ( From Evil to Premium). The Accuracy is litterally ball on ball and its increadably easy to hit things with this gun.
Weight- Besides the Invert Mini ( which is like .1 ounce lighter) this is the lightest gun on the market. I used to own an Ion, and after picking this up and picking my ion up, the ion (besides feeling like garbage compared to this) feels like a brick.
Size- I have not compared charts, but the ego is definatly one of the smallest guns on the market and definatly the thinest. If youve seen the pictures that comparing the thinness to the 06 ego (which is very thin to), you know what im talking about when i say its super thin.
Speed- The guns speed is only limited by the hopper in this case, i can shoot 30-32 balls a second with a reloader B, i recomend a pulse
Efficiancy- The efficiancy on this gun is great, i used crazy less air then usual
Chrono Test- The Chrono test was very good, by the third day of play i had (feild limit is 250) 247, 249, 247, 250, 245
I would recomend this gun above all others. All high end guns are pricy, but if your going to dish out 1200$, the ego is the only one i would go for. This product is the only one on the market that deserves a 10/10 in my opinion
Please rate this reveiw HELPFULL or UNHELPFULL and or COMMENT

Ego 07 Black
Empire B2 loader
Dye Throttle 68/4500
NONE. Perfect out of the box
Light- 2.07 pounds with barrell and battery
Speed- faster than 06
Smaller, New Anodizing
So, as soon as I got this gun, I took it out to the field to test it in a tournament. It came in a stunning black metal box that looked incredible. I was taken back by how light, small, and beautiful this marker is, and I was shaking because I wanted to use it so bad. I took to the chrono, and it was +/-6 every time, which was amazing. I took it unto the field, and everyone was crowding around trying to sneak a peek at this gun. It shot like a charm. There was no kick and it was extremely quiet. I am still amazed at the quality of this gun, and would recommend it to all players at the tournament level!
Even though this gun is $1250, it is well worth the money. If you have the money, buy it, and if you don't bu it anyway. After extensively using the 05 and 06 egos, this is clearly a step up from them. I give it a ten without hesitation
