The gun is great. I play local tournaments and it has been absolutely wonderful. The only things I would change are a center exit ASA and the addition of the Zick2 rammer. These are found stock in the new ETek 4 though.

Planet Eclipse Etek3 AM This gun is pretty much a remodeled ego and will preform the same. The board is easy to program and the tournament lock is a nice addition. I would recommend this over any new mid-end gun.

This is a great mid-high end gun. It is basically an ego7 without QEV's, therefore making it more reliable. Shoots very fast, is very consistent, and maintenance could not be easier. The only thing I don't like is the adjustment on the trigger. The point where the micro switch is activated cannot be changed, therefore reducing customization/comfort. This is fixed with an aftermarket trigger however. Great gun for the price!

I have had this marker going on a year now and i have to say it is a great gun. Smooth operation and extremely reliable. The marker is extremely easy to clean and the only tools you will need for the job is if you need to get into the grip frame. Very air efficient with about 3/4 of a case out of a 4500 fill. I have had no problems what so ever with mine and I'm planning on holding onto it for awhile. The only problem i have with the marker is the stock grips. Although they are comfortable they wear through to the frame too fast in my opinion. But other than that small hang up I would definitely recommend this marker. Planet Eclipse did very well with this mid-grade marker.

Planet Eclipse Etek3 AM Not had for long, but is a small step down from my ego. Shoots relatively smoothly, and its a great gun for the price. I suggest it for anyone who is looking to upgrade to a medium priced gun!
