There has never been such a complete and thorough overhaul of every facet of the Ego model, no stone left unturned in the pursuit of perfection. As a result the Ego LV1 utilizes technology never before seen in a paintball marker to transform the way it shoots

Smooth shooting gun (like every PE gun) and is pretty quiet for a poppet valve gun. Only thing I am not a fan of is looks, don't really like all the rubber on the gun but that is just my opinion. I can get around a case of paint through a 68/45.

Overall awesome gun

i picked up my lv1 fro oklahoma d-day. right out of the box the marker was longer than previous models...even the ego 11. comfortable as hell! i played the weekend with my ninja 90/4500 tank on the marker and i was getting 15 pods plus a rotor...right out of the box! i have approximately 14k shots on the marker now and i will be dwell/lpr/sfr tuning the marker soon. out of the box the marker on stock settings is fantastic, i cannot wait to see how the marker performs after it is tuned. it is getting better by the pod!

First off, this come guns with the amazing packaging that eclipse has become known for. The sturdy hardshell case and a bunch of goodies to help maintain your marker. Always an awesome job.

The appearance at first wasn't my favorite but over time it definitely grew on me. I love the appearance and colors now.

The ergonomics of this gun are incredible and it definitely feels amazing when held. One of, if not the most, comfortable guns I have ever held. The removal of the external lpr torpedo is amazing as well.

The very first time I shot this markee I was absolutely blown away. It's an extremely soft shot with very little kick. When firing a stream I usually only feel the slight kick from the first shot and then almost nothing. The gun is extremely quiet too.

As far as cons go, I have to be pretty nitpicky about it. The length may be a little long for some people (I don't have a problem with it) even though the distance isn't that much greater compared to past egos. Another con would be paint gets stuck in the small grooves of the grips. Its not a big deal to some and it's not a deal breaker in any way. These cons are just me being extremely nitpicky too as there is very little I don't like about this gun.

Overall this is definitely the best marker I have owned to date and I plan on keeping it my main shooter for a long time.

This gun is by far the biggest leap in poppet valve guns since the Intimidator. It shoots as smooth as a finely tuned Geo with the efficiency that the Ego is known for. As a tech I am very happy about how the built the gun. Tear down and re-build are extremely simple and I have yet to have any problems!

Planet Eclipse EGO LV1 Gun is very smooth but slow rof. Can only get 16bps on uncapped ramp with 3 different types of hoppers; rotor, 260 spire, and z2.

very quiet by ego standards... you think you are shooting in the 250's but when you chrono, it will ~300fps. definitely not what you think it is.
but i still cant get over the ugly front reg grip. not the clean lines i expect from PE.
i think i can live with it.

I had the opportunity to shoot an lv1 today at practice and I have to honestly say other than the sub par design this marker worked flawlessly, it doesn't shoot like a traditional ego...not nearly as loud as a poppit should be and it was ball on ball accurate...as I've previously stated I do not like the design of the lv1 but pe has managed to lower the sound signature which is incredible...just wish It didn't cost as much as it does...I'd recommend this gun if u can afford it and like the design....

I have use my personal Lv1 for a month, and used a tester version of the Lv1 for a few months before the release.

Appearance:
The milling is sleek. The grips is noticeably thicker than a Geo3/Ego11.
The macrolineless is near unnoticeable when playing. However, in my personal opinion, the reg grip is pretty ugly, and throws what could have been a sleek marker waaaaay off.

Shooting:
The sound signature, as well is shot quality is very much on par with a spoolie.
Out of the box, the Lv1 shoots smoother and quieter than a Geo 3 out of the box. Broken in, the sound and shot quality is comparable to Luxe.


In all honesty, this is the go to marker for planet eclipse. I have seen people who are loyal Bob Long owners come to the Lv1 platform.

Bought the LV1 because I just got done with a DM12. Spent the $1400+ on a Vamped LV1 and I love the feel of it, the design of the new AT pipe and new integrated grip on the reg. Shooting it was different compared to the past Egos, it was surprisingly QUIET AND MUCH SMOOTHER than its previous designs. I love this gun and cant wait to feel it when it's broken in.
