I have the 2008 Planet Eclipse Confederate Ego. It is the best speedball marker I have ever owned.

PROS:
Uber easy maintenance,can clean the bolt and chamber while aired up, board has almost unlimited control of what the marker does, the option to use optical or microswitch trigger, one of the best customer support teams in paintball, and the list goes on an on...

CONS:
The only con's I have are that there sure is a lot of kick you have to get used to, doesn't come with laser eyes for cost, and doesn't come with at least one extra barrel back.

Planet Eclipse Ego 2008 (Ego8) Best marker on the market for the year it was manufactured. Light, quick, and super reliable.

Cons: LOUD!
Bought a used 08 Ego off one of my buddies and I have absolutely no regrets. The gun looks and shoots great, is very air efficient and has great upgrade options. Only real con in my opinion is that it is really loud. It's pretty hard to flank people when it sounds like you're shooting a cannon. All in all I love the marker and most certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice high-end marker.

Planet Eclipse Ego 2008 (Ego8) I've used this every weekend for about 3 months or so now, this high end gun is worth it. It has a good company backing it up as well as a great, efficient gun.

Cons: mine only came with the 893 back
For my first actual tournament grade gun and jump from an etek1, it was a blast and super reliable. I cleaned it after everyday of play and lubed it every month or so. I bought it used and was sorta disappointed it only came with the 893 back because the paint I shot usually ran small. Loved the size of it too! Wasn't too big and wasn't too small. As for air efficiency, I didn't have a problem, my 68 lasted me about 2 points before I had to fill up again. I would recommend this gun to those willing to make the jump up from rec to tourney or those who have had experience with lower end guns first before bumping up to it. Sure it's fairly easy to maintain but to someone who has no experience it would be a bit intimidating, especially with the board settings and mode.
