I got my lv1 a month ago and so far have 10 cases through it. It is hands down the smoothest shooting gun I have ever fired. That is after it was tuned using the directions that came with the gun. I love the extra room for your front hand and the rubber is very comfortable compared to previous PE guns.

So I traded my clone GTi and $250 for a like new LV1. I am sad to say that I absolutely hated how the gun shot. There are mixed opinions about the lv1 having a drop shot, and I am here to say that is does have a horrible drop to it, I almost felt like i had to point the barrel an extra inch or two up just to shoot across the field.

What I liked:
I really liked how smooth this gun was, I was blown away by how quiet and how little kick there was compared to a normal ego. I liked how the lv1 felt in my hands and the sound signature.

What I didn't like:
I didn't like how it shot, I was hoping for a more linear shot and didn't get that, even after having a PE tech tune it for me. Also, it just never seemed to be ball on ball accurate like my GTi or Geo 3. I would honestly take one of those over an lv1 any day of the week.

Why I got rid of it:
The main reason I got rid of my lv1 was the drop shot, but also, it was the fact that during a tournament, the balls would literally start dropping off like I was running out of air, and I had to aim eight inches up just to hit the guy in the corner when I was at the 50.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend an lv1 to anyone, and I would say get a Geo, Specifically the 3.5 since I had the opportunity to shoot one the other day and it was beautiful.

The gun is amazing. Words cannot describe it.

Easy maintenance
Looks great
Smooth and Quiet. Shoots like a spool.
Macroline built into frame is fantastic, much easier to disassemble compared to past Ego series
Gas efficient.
Excellent quality, well built.

Advice - When tuning, use good paint. Watch Hustle Paintball video on tuning to make it easier.

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.

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 would like to start by saying that the only gripe i have with buying this gun is shelling out that much cash. there isn't anything wrong with planet eclipse charging that amount, i'm just cheap. the first thing i noticed about the gun was the awesome ergonomics. its super light and just fits in your hands. i already knew not to dry fire the gun, so naturally i put paint through it.. its quieter than a geo 3 with barely any kick. most of my friends thought the gun was chrono'd under 200, but it was shooting 290 fps, corner to corner, into the wind, on a regulation psp field. i was getting close to 10 pods and a hopper out out of a 68/45. money well spent if you're only interested in owning the best.
