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 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.

the etha is really not a bad starter gun. the trigger is great for stock, the board does everything ive ever wanted to do, eyes work great, and its very consistent over the crono once broken in.

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)

I dished out $400 for this gun only to have problem after problem... It may just be MY gun, but just so you don't have my problems... have the store you bought it from give you the recipt. I've had air leak after air leak with this thing... nothing has gone right... and only about 200 paintballs have come out of the barrel. Overall not very happy with this gun.

Unbeatable for the price.

Light, feels great in hand, shoots straight, excellent efficiency eays to use and seems durable/well built.

Downside is lack of color options and a good amount of kick, nothing terrible at all, just more than other speedball guns, but its still not broken in yet and if its the only downside for a third of a highend gun...

got my etha a few days ago. i was imediately impressed with the case. seems well built and ruggad. opening the case, i was pleasantly suprised to find a complete oring rebuild kit, legit barrel sleeve, lube and orings. pulled the gun out and was definately impressed with how light the gun feals and how comfortable the gun feels in my hands. i figured with the composite material, it would feel weak, like a childs toy. it feels really strong! so first time firing it... sooo smooth, and not much kick. i was suprised by how loud it was. i guess i was expecting something along with the dms/pms. its not a big deal, but i did notice it.

all in all, i was very impressed with the etha!!! i would recomend this gun to anyone and everyone!!!

Planet Eclipse Etha I have had an Etha for about 2 weeks now and have used it at the field once. It performed great, very accurate and efficient. I would like to see new colors though.
