Cool Re: G-R2 Enhancement Kit

Mail-in or Register on-line for the "New G-R2 Enhancement Kit" once you have purchased your "Eclipse Geo Marker"

Since the release of the Geo we have been making small subtle changes to various components to enhance the performance and reliability of the marker. Having reached a stage where all of the modifications have been thoroughly tested and approved by our sponsored teams and beta testers, amongst others, we are now ready to release information of the G-R2 Enhancement Kit.

The G-R2 Enhancement Kit comprises of the following components:
1 x G-R2 Prop Shaft Assembly
1 x G-R2 Inline Piston
8 x Patched Eye Cover/Rubber Grip Screw
1 x Patched Rear Frame Screw

So why would I need one?
The Geo has been performing really well out in the field. But with feedback from our extensive range of service centers and sponsored teams from around the world as well as feedback from fellow Geo users we have been very keen to look at, and improve on, any issues. Based on that feedback, the G-R2 kit has been assembled to address these issues in one tidy enhancement kit.

Lead Designer: Jack Wood said “At Planet Eclipse we want our products to be the best that they can be. We are constantly taking feedback from a multitude of sources and with that information we are constantly looking for ways to improve every aspect of our products. When we find a way of making something better, we feel compelled to make the change. We could wait until the next generation of markers, but that would be selling you, the customer, short. That’s something we just don’t feel comfortable doing. Support of our existing customers, making sure their equipment is to the highest possible standard, is our number one concern. If you want the very best performance you can get from your Geo then the G-R2 kit is for you.”

So what do these parts do?
The new G-R2 Prop Shaft Assembly includes a new design of VVC screw to prevent the VVC backing out and leaking. A larger diameter O-ring and revised groove dimensions of the rear O-ring to prevent the Prop Shaft Assembly backing out of the Geo body during play. A new shortened “tip” allows the ball to sit further into the face of the bolt to alleviate ball breakages allowing you to shoot even more fragile paint. Modifications to the design of the VVC Screw Fore-Stop to further strengthen the design. The G-R2 Prop Shaft Assembly is easily distinguishable by the two grooves milled into the base of the tip:



The G-R2 Inline Piston sees a central barbed stem added to the tip of the piston that not only has superior seal retention properties but also keeps the seal flatter than ever before minimizing the chance of the Inline Regulator over pressurizing. This helps give better shot-to-shot consistency as well as better reliability.


The patched screws simply give eye covers, rubber grips and the rear frame screws a much tighter, secure fit to prevent any loosening during play. This helps take day-to-day maintenance down to an absolute minimum.


So how do you tell if your Geo already has a G-R2 Enhancement Kit fitted?
- If you purchased a Geo in 2008 then it will NOT have a G-R2 Kit Fitted.
- If you purchased a Geo in 2009 then you will need to look at your Geo Prop Shaft to see if it has the double groove marking:

If there are no markings then your Geo does NOT have a G-R2 Kit fitted.
- If you have a Geo that has the G-R2 Prop Shaft but not the G-R2 Piston or patched screws then contact Nicky T at our Manchester office on nick.t@planeteclipse.com, or Gerry Bates at our Rhode Island office on gerry.b@planeteclipse.com and we will send you the parts that you require as you do not need the full G-R2 Kit.

Please note that there is no serial number cut-off for this update. This Press Release applies to all Geo’s produced in 2008 and will apply to some Geo’s sold in 2009.

So how do you get one of these G-R2 Upgrade Kits?
- The ONLY way to get one is by registering your Geo, either by submitting the warranty card in the manual or by completing the online warranty application here: http://www.planeteclipse.com/site/eWarranty.asp. By successfully registering your Geo on or before the 31st March 2009, all customers who need one, will automatically be sent a G-R2 Upgrade Kit completely FREE OF CHARGE.

Please note that G-R2 Upgrade Kits will NOT be available at Eclipse Tech Booths, so register your Geo now to get yours now (if required).

Full instructions of how to install the G-R2 Upgrade Kit can be found online at www.planeteclipse.com, in the Eclipse Featured Forums on www.pbnation.com and on the Planet Eclipse YouTube Learning Channel at www.youtube.com/planeteclipsetv

Just to let you all know (because I know you are all DYING to know) the first G-R2 Kits will be shipping from the UK this Friday, the 23rd Jan 2009.

After that we will be shipping every Friday for registrations received in the prior week.

If you have already registered your Geo, your Kit WILL be shipping this week. Please allow a week to ten days for delivery. We have more than enough Kits in stock to cover the registrations we have received so far.

If any of your details have changed from those that you registerd, like your address, then email nick.t@planeteclipse.com with your ammendments.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell all the Geo owners you know about this offer. We really want all Geo owners out there to get this kit, but it has to be done in an orderly manner, and the only way of doing that is through the Warranty Registration Procedure.

Sorry if this has already been asked or answered, but are the kits being shipped automatically to those who's information you have? I have two Geo's and only one is registered. Will I receive one kit in the next week or two automatically without ordering one? Then once I register my other Geo, a kit will come automatically for that one as well? I just want to know if there is anything I need to do besides registering the Geo to receive the kit.


Thanks in advance!!
