Pros: shoots ropes, built like a tank, and looks amazing
Cons: heavy, has a pretty hefty kick
The price I paid was back in 2006 so dont think I was a ******* I paid that much for a 05. Ive been shot this gun in 2006 and 2007. Back in the day this was the gun to have and its the one gun Ill never sell. Truly a piece of history, but lets get down to the review.

How does it shoot? 9 (1-10)
I give it a 9 compared to markers nowadays it does shoot ropes but compared to the Luxe's that just shoots lazers. Has a bit of a kick to it, although back in the day you probally wouldn't of noticed since you were shooting so damn fast and so damn accurately.

Performance? 6
Why a 6 you gotta say? Well lets look at it by todays standards its HEAVY. This thing weighs more then my Ego 10 with a hopper and balls with mud all over it. Although it was heavy its built to last I can imagine taking this thing to field with me. Its like the comparison of a ak-47 to a m16. This thing is the AK in the picture its just built to last and shoot through your toughest days.

Maintenance? 9
EASY.<--- Thats a period

Planet Eclipse Ego 2005 (Ego5) My first tourney gun, shoots ropes very easy to maintain/lube/clean. Wish they made a solenoid for these still, I would still shoot one.
