Internally the Etha is a radical departure from anything seen before in an Eclipse marker. For the first time we utilize a spring return bolt system in the firing mechanism, allowing us to simplify the pneumatic side of the marker and use a Pull Poppet spool to release air from the firing chamber. The Etha comes delivered in a hard case with everything you need to look after and maintain it.

I bought an etha expecting a mini/ion type gun. Man, was I wrong. This is a top notch, tournament gun for more than half the price. It shoots straight, has a good feel to it and looks great. Efficiency could use improvement, but overall, it is a stellar gun for the price. The etha has a bit of kick to it, but it will even out as it starts to break in. Thank you Planet Eclipse for making another solid gun.

Planet Eclipse Etha With the Etha, PE has done it again in creating a nice alternative in the lower end price range of markers. Doesn't quite shoot like an EGO or GEO but for 1/3 of the price. Added a 48ci tank and a...

With the Etha, PE has done it again in creating a nice alternative in the lower end price range of markers. Doesn't quite shoot like an EGO or GEO but for 1/3 of the price. Added a 48ci tank and a Prophecy Z2 loader and had a complete blast playing with this marker.

Planet Eclipse Etha when compared to a mini, or old ego, or old dm that you can get for the same price, it just doesnt make sense. Its not too good at any one thing and it costs a substantial amount. some people love...

when compared to a mini, or old ego, or old dm that you can get for the same price, it just doesnt make sense. Its not too good at any one thing and it costs a substantial amount. some people love em, but i just dont see the value. Until recently the poppit spring issues were just a pain. Their springless poppit replacement cured that bit, but should you buy a used one that hasnt been replaced, you'll have to wait a week or two for the part from PE

this is a great gun for people who are starting out and mid level players. This gun is very easy to take apart and clean. This is defiantly a work horse gun and can be used in any condition. The board can be kind of hard to use and chang between settings. I would suggest this gun for anyone who's trying to get into the game.

I purchased my Etha in February and so far it hasn't caused me too many issues at all, it shoots great and is pretty good on air. However the gun has a lot of vibration and has this annoying "ping" sound every time it shoots.
