tested: WGP hinge, DYE, KAPP, Shocktech, Warped/CCM
and E-Blade :)
Eclipse Cocker' 96 or '97 (according to Jack Wood) plus many extras.... including of Eclipse Blade Mk.III :)
very, very comfortable, fast trigger
oh.... one bad news - there are sometimes hard to find... :(
This is the best hinge frame, only CCM is comparable :)
very comfortable trigger plate (flat)
very smooth action (especially with lightened springs i.e. KAPP)
Trigger has possibility of change springs (sear spring and trigger spring) thus gives the smoothest trigger action - with good 3way and RAM this is terrible...
easy installation (manual included)
I installed this frame on my cocker and four other cockers of my team (called Banshee). None of these cockers required more than 10-15 minutes work.
PlanetEclipse add to package: spare LP hose for hose switch on 3way, hose clamp and allen key.
this frame rocks....
all is superb with this frame: from design to shooting with this frame
If You want to buy "analog" trigger frame don't buy WGP, DYE, KAPP - buy Planet - this is worth few more bucks
total custom red autococker(ans front pneumatics w/ shocktech "the bomb 3 way", vertical max-flo, eclipse blade trigger, supa-fly bolt, kapp black block, flame drop, 12v revy w/ x board, total freak W/ BOOM STICK FRONT that totals to 9 1/2", nitro)
very comfortable , very adjustable and a lighter pull then the hinge
none that ive noticed, anouther great product by planet eclipse
this frame feels good to hold is very adjustable, it looks really good on any autococker and its a great produt. planet eclipse makes great stuff and the blade trigger is no exception. it has a great trigger pull. if you get the chrome trigger frame then you have to buy the dye sticky grips in black beause it looks awsome
if your considering the wgp hinge and the planet elipse blade go with the blade
I haven't used any other aftermarket triggers on my cocker.

Screws can slowly back out of frame.. Just pay more attention to your maintenance...
The trigger worked almost flawlessly right out of the box. After the first game I realized that it made my gun feel like an electro. (Can't rest fingers on trigger) The second game I realized that my macroline didn't have as much slack as usual. By the fourth game I had the biggest scare since I was playing paintball. I had a broken macroline fitting so my line could just pop right out, and it did. My frame had losened and moved down the screw. I had realized that the pressure had been dropping slowly. I fundled with my hose and it popped out! All the pressure left in my tank had just bursted out of a little hole on the side of my thor. Luckily I had only about 400-500 psi left. After this little explosive problem I bought a stainless screw set and it fixed my problem completely. I also have steel braided hose, tighten my screws after every day and play, play, play!
Oh Yea Get it now! you will not regret buying it. Espescially for the low price.

I bought this trigger as one of the first upgrades to my marker. i HATED the stock trigger, so i changed it as soon as possible. I am VERY pleased with this purchase. It wasn't too expensive, but even if it were, it doesn't matter because of how good it is. i can easily shoot 8-10 balls per second. It feels very solid, and the whole thing "feels" like quality.
Buy it if you are thinking about it! you won't be disappointed!

I had a Stock slide trigger on my cocker and had a hard time shooting very fast. I loved my marker but wished it performed better. I just recently had the Eclipse Trigger Frame installed on my marker and took it out to test it for the first time. I was still able to short stroke from time to time, it usually happened if I shot too slow. Once I got a rhythm down It was very impressive.
It is hard to believe it is the same paintball marker. The performance is unreal and brings a whole new level to my game. I can sit back and shoot short bursts or can rip it wide open and shoot a stream of paint with very little effort.
If you can't afford to buy an electronic marker or want to upgrade your current one to use as a backup then this is the upgrade for you. The difference in performance is incredible and well worth the cost.
Look around I got mine online for $80 shipped to my door.
You wont regret buying this product...
This is a definate buy... 2 Thumbs up... After a barrel this is the upgrade to get...

This trigger is incredible, if your adrenaline level is high, you will pull faster than any other marker out there. Caught some suckers out in the open (hehehe) and kind of pissed them off because I shot so much. It makes me laugh when people spend 100's on electronic frames when you can get this.
Buy this if you have knowledge on how to install it or if you have a smith near you. It is a sweet buy and you will love it even more the day you make somebody cry.
2k2 red cocker 12 volt revy x board (pre brass eagle), red psycho ballistics pro drop forward, shocktech bomb 3-way, kapp fat ram, lapco autospirit, eclipse blade trigger frame and a dye izon sight.
Looks great very adjustable better than dye and wgp
cost 90 bucks
This product is the greatest thing for any cocker if you have a great 3 way like the shocktech bomb and a good ram and loader to keep up with this beast. I was reading the ONLY review on this that got a 1 and said it couldnt be timed was wrong he probably didnt adjust the sear lug because i had to for mine. I cant believe how short and how smooth my gun is now it fires so much faster and more accurate because the gun doesnt move when i pull the trigger.
If you have the money to buy this get it! It burns any other frame besides the electros but they cost 5 times more. Buy eclipse
A Pure Energy compressed air tank, 3000 psi/68 cubic inch
-Nice wide triggger
-Easily taken apart and re-assembled
-Overall good quality constuction
-The hex screws that adjust the length can steadily back out over time
I don't regret buying this frame at all! Everyone has a different preference, but this one is definately worth considering.
-It's very adjustable. There are two allen screws on the trigger that adjust the length; one halfway up the arm of the trigger itself that determines how far back the trigger can travel, and one sitting at the very top of the arm that determines how far the trigger has left to pivot. It's a minor point, but that second hex screw actually helps in timing by letting you indirectly decide how far into the pull you want the marker to fire.
-It's very easily taken apart and re-assembled which makes changing spring configurations easy and relatively painless.
-The trigger arm itself has a very wide body to it...it's only a matter of preference, but many people find the wider arm more 'natural' (for lack of a better word).
A few minor not-so-good things:
-For some odd reason one of the allen screws on mine is slightly prone to uncrew itself over time...not a major pain, it just means I've got play around with it every now and then. I think this was more of a random occurence however, I doubt every Blade has this problem.
-The hole where the actuating rod meets the frame is slotted (as opposed to a WGP Hinge which has a round hole). This may or may not be a bad thing depending on your preference, as it can definately help in timing the gun (by creating a clear distinction between firing and cocking cycles), but it makes the trigger pull slightly longer than it needs to be.
-A little pricey
In the pool of swing frames this one is definately a good choice. It's extremely well crafted, easily adjustable, and very easy to whip off fast strings of paint on. God Bless Planet Eclipse!
I have used the stock trigger frame on a 2k2 autococker.....
It was okay, but it was plastic.

This frame is amazing. When I first got it and pulled the trigger it was so unbelievably smooth. It really is extrememly smooth I can't stress this enough. It is easy to install but if you do not know what you are doing I recomend letting a professional do it. This frame is not only smooth but it has a lot of external adjustments on it so you can make it feel any way you want it to: short, smooth, snappy anything. I really love this frame and I think I will have mine for a long time, it's a great product and I recommend it to everyone. If you are trying to decide on a frame do yourself a favor and get this one... you will not regret it.
Not much the only thing I can think of is the screws that are meant for screwing your grip onto the frame did not fit in the frame. That wasn't a big deal I just went to the hardware store and got some new one's.
And I guess you have to retime your marker after you get this but thats the same with every frame. And it doesn't have a safety...oh well that's what barrel plugs are for.
This frame is definately my favorite upgrade so far. If you are looking for a smooth and well made frame then get this. I would take this one over any other frame out there any day.
