Planet Eclipse Ego 2008 (Ego8) I wasn't as happy with this ego, as i was with my 07 ego. I had some issues with the 08 performing in weather conditions.. I had no problem with my 07. Other than that it is an ego.

Pros: Reliable, Accurate, Fast, & Light
Cons: None...
Appearance: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the Ego8 is a masterfully crafted war piece of art. For me, this marker is like the girl next door that you see for the first time, and all you can say is dahamn (“Who in the hell is that?”). The milling and design is elegant and bold. It’s the gold standard of what a marker should be…

Performance: The first word that comes to mind is elite. The Ego8 is a world class marker with great performance. If the paintball field is the war zone, then the Ego8 is a Special Forces marker. Ropes, one ballin’, snappin’, divin’, or whatever you are doing, the Ego8 will provide consistent accuracy despite it’s fast, light, and comfortable design that could make one think that it maybe a lightweight on the field. This marker is pound for pound the undisputed champion.

My Ego8 doesn’t have a kick (and it’s still not broken in yet). Sweet…

Reliability: Besides how great the marker performs, the reliability is second element of what makes the Ego8 a phenomenal marker. Don’t take it from me, ask around and read other reviews. Only basic maintenance is required (meaning cleaning and oiling) to keep this marker up on top of it’s game. They simply do not break down.

Just take care of it… Love it… Stroke it… and Shoot it…

Value: You get what you pay for with an Ego8, which is an elegant, high performing, reliable beast on the field. Enough written…

Customer Service: The PE staff is very responsive whether it’s a call, email, or fax. This is an element to really consider when making a purchase. In my brief ownership and dialog with folks concerning this marker, PE’s customer service has been labeled as top notch. I’ve contacted them and I was not disappointed. They are very responsive and willing to work with you. Kudos…

Overall: This is an absolutely amazing marker from the design, to the feel, and to the execution on the field. I’ve admired the Ego8 from a far, but never thought of owning one. In fact, I never even considered getting one until I held one for the first time. Another great thing about this marker is that no upgrades are needed, required, nor recommend for this marker. Some of the basic things that people upgrade are:

* Trigger – No upgrade is required or necessary because the stock feels great and works extremely well),

* Barrel – No upgrade is required or necessary because this beast shoots straight as an arrow,

* Bolt - No upgrade is required or necessary as with most high end markers, stock is normally the best thing going for you and,

* Board – 5 Stars! Don’t even think about it. The only reason that I upgraded to the Tadao board is because mine came with a Virtue Board (the blinking lights one). In hindsight, I should have just purchased the stock board.

In closing, Planet Eclipse did such a terrific job with the Ego8 that I plan on holding on to this one for a long while...

Planet Eclipse Ego 2008 (Ego8) I've had tons of Ego7's and 8's, but to be honest I always preferred the 7's, they just look better and seem to feel a little better.

Planet Eclipse Ego 2008 (Ego8) Best gun I have ever owned. Shoots ropes. Never has let me down, haven't ever had a problem with it. Only thing I don't like about it is that it is pretty loud.

I just got a stock dust red/dust silver Ego 8 and let me tell ya...it's awesome. I have a DM5 and Ion. The Ego 8 feels so nice in your hands. Its thin, light weight, fast, and tight in with your body (thats with a 68/4500). I can't say to much about it because I haven't used it very much but would still recommend it to someone looking to upgrade or just wanted an Ego like me. If your debating whether to get one or not, go hold one...If your a guy, it's like being in 6th grade again and discovering what spanking the monkey is all over again...enjoy
