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.

so i get this gun, im like ehh another PE marker until i shoot it, on 2000psi air on a 68ci tank i got 2 and 1/2 pods, chrono was consistent with 274-279 on 20 shots, i was using some very old paint to test out if it would chop and not a single ball break i was amazed my only complaint why did pe wait so long to bring this marker out.

Shoots great (ball on ball), I don't have any issues with the trigger being sloppy or having side to side play like others have complained about. The LED doesn't bother me but we shall see after my first night game of the year. It might only matter then because it doesn't during the day. Nice marker, the only issue I have is how long they are taking to release the EMC kit which has been talked about for months now. PE needs to get that moving. All in all its a great marker for the cost, great feel and shot. Happy with it just not the delays on the kit.

I absolutely love this marker. It's tough as nails and has some pretty awesome looks. It may not be as flashy as some other markers, but it looks great nonetheless. The modes are easy to set up, and the trigger is absolutely amazing. I've never used a marker like this where I don't even consciously realize I'm using a marker. Everything about it feels very natural. The LED is nice and bright (Some people call this a con, I like it) so that you can see out of the corner of your eye what the status is. I haven't tried playing with it at a nighttime scenario game yet, so the LED may or may not be annoying in a low-light situation. Other than that I love it.

i bought my etha about 2 months ago, for what it is and the price i paid for it its a great marker it shoots good, very light weight, performs well. The only problem i had with it (which realy wasnt a problem) was when i first got it, it had a spring pop-it in it and balls were flying in all different directions, but it came with a uprade pop-it (springless pop-it) so i through that one in it and bam it was shooting great no other problems since. all in all i like it

I have to say I am honestly surprised at how much I enjoyed shooting this gun. I put at least 2500 rounds through it at a local field last Sunday and it shot like a gem! The Etha shoots smooth and consistent, however it doesnt quiet compare to a gt or a vapor the bottom line is, I think The Etha is a pretty good marker. Put a good barrel kit on it and it would be hard to beat especially for a marker in its price range.
Would reccomend for someone looking to get started in paintball or for a woodballer

It is pretty much the equivalent of an etek but for geos. It is loud and is very good on air efficiency. It comes in a nice hard plastic case with strong foam to keep it from moving around. A quality colored manual and full set of Allen keys that you would need are included. It also has a small spare parts kit and planet eclipse grease/lube. If you are in the market to buy a new gun around the 400 price point then I would go for this over and etek, drone, axe, or others.

i just couldnt handle the dang kick and the awful pinging sound this marker has. if someone were coming from a mechanical low end gun they most likely wouldnt mind. but i couldnt handle it

Planet Eclipse Etha Great gun for the price, uses alot of air and you have to clean often (spools shoot oil down the barrel sometimes)
